From the first phone conversation with Mike Watson I knew our evening was going to be great. He was very professional but so easy to work with. When the night came both Mike & Derek showed up with tools in hand and ready to entertain. Our friends were very impressed as were my husband and I. Mike & Derek were fun and invited us to test taste what they were preparing. We all discussed restaurants and downtown Chicago. Theyre background experience is just so off the charts. Who wouldn't want these two in their home cooking for them. Price was very reasonable and the food was outstanding. Good time was had by all and I'd definitely hire them again. Thanks Mike & Derek for making my lifetime wish such an enjoyable one. Patti Limbach

Sorry about being a little late to review, but Carol is outstanding. We used Carol to prep and cook for my son and his wife's baby shower at our home. Carol came to the house the day before and did the prep work and cooked for 70+ people on the day of the shower. She was punctual, professional and efficient. We would recommend her and cannot wait for our next event to use her again.

My husband and I hired Tracy to prepare two dinners per week, to be dropped of at our River Forest home. Her recipes are outstanding and the food is very fresh and seasonal. The meals include a salad w/homemade dressing, along with the main course and different side dishes. Plus, Tracy is an extremely nice person who was on time, with all the items and directions clearly labeled. We were very impressed and will definitely call her again.

Chef Frank was very professional and quick to respond to all queries. He was flexible in scheduling and location and considerate given that we were in the middle of moving houses. The lesson was a birthday present for my 9 year old daughter and he made it an event to remember. I would highly recommend Chef Frank for cooking/baking lessons.

Stephanie was absolutely phenomenal! I had wanted an in home cooking lesson for a friends birthday and we made the French menu! Food was amazing! Stephanie had personality and was really fun to work with. From doing these events in the past I was expecting a mess and a long process but she made everything go very smooth and cleaned throughout! I would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend her if you want amazing food, guidance and company! Best one on the app!

Let me set the stage for you: It was crunch time. I had an expected 60 or so guests to arrive at a work function. We didn't have much time to plan either. I knew that I wanted to have all different types of food. I knew I needed to have someone versatile in cooking techniques and was also able to do some sweets. In the past, I have done small catering orders through Marlo and it went beautifully. I called her to see if she could bail me out on such short notice (A week). Marlo saves the day again! She put my worries at ease by helping me create a menu to what I wanted for the event with all the specifications. I like to use her because she does Filipino, Spanish, American, and I bet she could do it all! To say the least, we were beyond impressed with the food was delicious and fresh. You can really tell she used quality ingredients. She arrived on time and promptly got to work on helping me set up the dishes to be serve-ready. I enjoy her creativeness and multifaceted skills in the culinary arts. It isn’t just that her food and pastries are delicious; it’s that she puts her own twist into the mix to elevate otherwise ordinary food. We also ordered her desserts. I recommend you get the Mamon (Filipino Sponge Cake- She makes it individually wrapped) and Tiramisu! We also ordered decorated cake pops as giveaways (which were a hit!). The decadent flavor of the Mamon really shows her skill in baking as well. The pricing was below what I have paid for catering orders half of the size with others, which made expensing this order easy on my pocket. Her service was seamless from beginning to end. Marlo took a great deal of worry off my shoulders. She is professional and friendly. I enjoy her catering service and would recommend her to all my friends who have also had the same great service. I plan to continue to use her for any and all of my future catering needs. I couldn't be more grateful.

I’m a lawyer finishing my MBA, planning my wedding and trying to kickstart my weight loss. I wasn’t sure where to start, but Mark gave me the step by step support I needed. In two weeks, I lost 7 pounds with a combination of his coaching, nutrition, and meal prep services. I'm so glad I found him - Thanks Mark!

Aakruti Mahendra is an excellent personal chef. Great personality. She helps you plan your menu by giving you suggestions. Shops, cooks and cleans up. I like that she leaves you written instructions on how to heat the various entrees. Also, labeling each item and storing them in containers that can be used to heat your food.

Mary's cooking classes are both fun and educational. Mary has an easy going style, yet she keeps you on track with easy to follow recipes and a helping hand when you need it. I am such a fan that I've taken 7 different classes with Mary! I've learned how to make bread and the jam and butter to put on it, pasta, apple pie and cheese! It's most fun when you bring a friend or two and make it a group outing.

Our chef was trained at Le Cordon Bleu, and finished in Sorrento, Italy. With over 25 years of experience, Chef is able to handle most any request, and larger parties requiring more thought and planning for equipment and staff. Our clients seem to enjoy his quirky sense of humor, and the flavor combo he produces.
