    Jeanine made my life so easy as she helped me with this event. Fast to respond, excellent at communications and the food and the presentation of her "art" totally topped off my trip and more importantly, my guests experience. Top Shelf & First Class. Highly, highly recommend these good folks.

    Thank you, Greg, for the rave review! You were so easy to work with as well. And your team was a lot of fun to entertain. I am so glad they enjoyed! It was nice to hear one of them say "Man, Greg. This was a lot of fun. I am never going to forget this!" as you were leaving. Great choice on the event location and great choice on your catering selection ;) Cheers

    “Recently the chefs at Oh! Catering invited us to experience their cooking and service at our business and once we sampled their food and met Chefs Jeanine and Darrin we were hooked. Thank you for a culinary experience that we are sure to share with our customers! I’ve got to find a way to get some more of those bite-size Sliders on a small pretzel bun as well as your over-size Snickerdoodle cookies. Wow!!!” - Scott, Funeral Director, Hultgren Funeral Home, Wheaton, IL

    Chef Jeanine came to our house for a tasting and then served a phenomenal meal at our party! She was very professional and friendly. She set up a serving area that looked great. My guests gobbled down the food. I highly recommend the vino parfait shots and the sausage, peppers and mussels. We will be hiring her again for next year!

    Thank you, Jennifer, for the great review. You were a pleasure to work with and we are happy that your guests enjoyed the food. We will make a note in our 2017 calendar! Cheers

    From start to finish, Chef Jeanine was delightful to work with. The dishes prepared by Chefs Jeanine and Darrin for our women's mindfulness retreat were received fabulously! Chef Jeanine was gracious enough to share for a few minutes about mindful food preparation ("gratitude and confidence"), which added so beautifully to our meal. Everything was prepared and served beyond expectation. We are so grateful to have found such a great match in oh! I highly recommend Chefs Jeanine and Darrin, and will continue spreading the word about how easy they were to work with, as well as the amazing quality of the meals--fresh, healthy, heavenly!

    Thank you, Lynn, for the kind review. We are so happy that the attendees loved the meal. It was an honor to know that you were mindfully eating and enjoying it! We would love to work with you again. Thank you for telling others about us!

    Chef Jeanine and Chef Darin are amazing!! We were having Spanish tapas engagement party and they made the party!! Their food was amazing, their attention to the details (like getting Spanish chocolate for the dessert, homemade crostini etc), and their calm reassuring demeanors during planning and setting up for the party made the whole night a perfect success!!
    Chef Jeanine and Chef Darrin F. Mar 8, 2016

    Thank you, Sue, for the glowing review. It was a pleasure to help welcome your new son-in-law to the family with an authentic spread of Spanish cuisine! May Becca and Kalle's marriage be filled with great meals! Cheers

    We had OH provide us with service personnel - bartender, 2 servers, they also provided and delivered party platters and desserts. Jeannine quickly responded to all my emails, gave me helpful advice and the day of the party arrived on time, set up the items, checked on her service personnel. Darrin also checked the platters- food was wonderful, I highly recommend and will definitely use OH again.

    Darrin and Jeanine just did a wonderful job on our very unique and wonderful June 2015 wedding! Right off the back, our requests were very specific-- we wanted an ALL Vegan wedding, for 120 people. We wanted to make sure the food tasted amazing, that our well-versed vegetarian/vegan guests would be pleased, but also that our majority usual meat eating crowd would be impressed, satisfied, and forget what they "thought bland ol' vegan" food was "supposed to" taste like. Well, our guests comments were VERY positive, many telling me after the wedding how much they loved the bold choice for mole enchiladas, paella, and more... After good time discussing our themes, likes/dislikes, etc...Their company offered us a private tasting in our own home, which was a convenient and (delicious!) way to figure out that we liked them a lot! The price points were in our budget, coming in at a reasonable and realistic range for what we wanted. We would recommenced them for other events, wedding, etc!

    We really enjoyed having Jeanine and Darrin prepare the perfect dinner for our party. Communications before and during the event were perfect, as were the options given to us for the different courses. They arrived as scheduled, were well prepared and left everything as they found it. We would definitely considering using them again.

    Jeanine and Darrin provided an amazing experience for small dinner party I was hosting. With a very tight time schedule she was able to prepare an amazing menu and when I asked for a slight change she was very accommodating. Then during the party she provided a perfect presence; not too overbearing but active enough with the guests. Finally, and most important, the quality and taste of the meal. She and Darrin certainly delivered. Thanks again!

    I approached Jeanine about creating some healthy recipes for my family. She suggested a cooking demonstration class, during which she provided and demonstrated multiple recipes including snacks, breakfast, dinner,sides, dessert and even almond milk. She was very knowledgable about the ingredients and their respective nutritional values and even gave helpful tips regarding little-known ingredients she uses to enhance flavors, etc. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and the food was delicious!

    My husband and I worked with Jeanine for a small 35th anniversary dinner for my parents. Not only did Jeanine create an exquisite menu, she also came to our house to discuss the evening and look at the kitchen and serving platters. The evening of the event, she brought with a second chef and the two of them worked so well together. The created an elegant environment by creating beautiful dishes and serving everyone. They also cleaned up before they left. I would highly recommend Jeanine to anyone!

Chef Darrin has been in the business since he was 16. The kitchen and all of its chaos and joy is where he is most comfortable.

After studying in Austin, TX for a few years, she returned to the Midwest and is now partnered with Chef Darrin.

We have experience catering and doing personal chef work around the USA, the Caribbean and Central America.
