I was searching to hire a personal chef since I was to fly back home for the holidays but found out I had a bad herniated disc causing me severe pain in my lower back and leg which threw a wrench in my home for the holidays.. anyhow..did a search on Google and Thumbtack...services popped up and I did a search near my parents residence and found Karen through TLC... Karen was amazing to work with and understood my situation completely.. She prepared a wonderful meal for my Dad's birthday which was a gift on Christmas Eve.. Both my parents loved the overall dinner and Karen too! I would highly recommend Karen in the NW Indiana area if you are looking to hire a personal chef!

Desserts4U provided me with everything I needed for my daughter's wedding cake. Pam helped me figure out exactly what flavors and size cake worked best for us and worked with our budget. She did an excellent job incorporating the theme and colors into the cake as well. Everyone enjoyed the cake and it was the talk of the party! I STILL have people asking me about it! Thank you so much Pam! We will continue to use Desserts4U for all of our pastry needs!

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.

So happy we chose Chef Val and her staff for our corporate event! The presentation was wonderful, they arrived on time, and the cost was better than any other proposal we received. Everyone loved their food, but the biggest hits were the Deviled Eggs, the Garlic Parmesan Chicken Bites, and the Triple Chocolate and Red Corvette Velvet Cupcakes! I would definitely and use them again for our next event. Thanks so much Chef Val, you were a delight to work with!

Chef Paul Catering was exactly what I was looking for in a full service caterer. They took care of everything and the food was wonderful. They worked so quietly and neatly that I hardly knew they were in our home. I will definitely use them again and recommend them.

Amour de Cuisine

I cannot recommend Jennifer and Amour de Cuisine highly enough! My bridesmaids, Aunt and Mom hired Jennifer to cater my bridal shower. The shower had a tea party theme for which Jennifer created the most beautiful tea sandwiches and petite hor'derves. She also made dips and dessert options that my guests raved about. As much as every bite was pure bliss, the meticulous attention to the detail of presentation was a feast for the eyes! I still hear more about the food at my bridal shower more than I do about the food at my wedding! I have worked with other caterers and chefs, but in comparison Jennifer is an artist at her craft. Not only is she a professional and punctual chef, but her party planning skills are an added bonus. When I walked into the dining room where the food was set up for my shower, I felt like I had traveled to a vintage French tea party, and Jennifer set it all up to look that way. She truly set the mood for a perfect pre-wedding celebration. I can't wait to use her again for the next celebration that I host! Thank you, Jennifer, for putting so much elegance, heart, and love into the your work and for making my bridal shower so memorable and special!

About

I am a San Francisco based pastry chef who is currently working in a high-end bakery refining her craft further. I have worked in various restaurants in NYC and Palm Beach for the last 5 years. I grew up in the Midwest and Chicago area, eating lots of corn and baking with my grandmother almost every day. I am so passionate about what I do and want to share that as much as possible! I aim to make well-made desserts that are very aesthetically pleasing but above all, delicious. I love to eat as much as I love to cook/bake and spend most of my free time exploring restaurants for research and traveling. I am well versed in many different areas of pastry including cakes, plated desserts, cookies, pies, and other baked goods, confections, chocolates, and ice creams. I love to teach people new things about food and baking and am always excited to open a world of possibilities up to someone!
