I liked the fact that there was flexibility in the menu. When my chefs and server arrived, I was put at ease by their professionalism. I really enjoyed my own dinner party.
I hired Lakeshore Private Chef & Catering to cater a joint 40th and 85th birthday celebration. I couldn't have been happier with the results. The food was delicious and Chef David was a delight to work with. If I ever needed to do this again, I would definitely hire this company again.
To say that Mike and Derrick were amazing would be an understatement. They are friendly, personable and very talented chefs. The food was fresh, cooked perfectly and delicious beyond delicious. The presentation was gorgeous and they even cleaned up after. Highly recommend these guys and will definitely use them again and again.
Lindsey is a talented chef. Her meals are healthy, flavorful, colorful and enticing. You can taste the passion she pours into her cooking. She's also easy to communicate with and very accommodating, even if you have last minute requests. I'm thrilled beyond words to have found Lindsey! My husband and I look forward to many more tasty meals!
Kirk is an AMAZING Chef and wonderful to work with. He has delivered weekly meals to us, as we are without a kitchen right now. My 10 year old has already asked if we could keep him even after the kitchen is done. We definitely will. I cannot say enough about his creative, delicious dishes. He also communicates weekly about the menu (and is open to modifications, if necessary) and is prompt with his deliveries. He prepares food to our diet (gluten free) and the fact that we want all of our foods organic, free range, etc. I look forward to continuing to work with Kirk for a long, long time.
We hired Tracy to be part of a two chef team for a baby shower for 70+ guests at our home and were extremely pleased. She was punctual, very helpful and was not hesitant to do whatever needed to be done. We will certainly hire her again.
Contacted Chef Carol to do an after work networking event and cocktail party for 100 people. She presented a selection of menu items that would work within a very short period of time from out initial meeting. On the day of the event she arrived promptly with all the supplies needed and handled every detail perfectly. We received raved reviews from the attendees about all the food but especially the flat breads. Chef Carol took care of all the clean up also and let the event spotless as well. A true professional who delivers quality food, we cannot wait for our next event to hire her back.
Where do I begin with how amazing Kristen was? I requested the assistance of a server to simply help refill the buffet at our event. Kristen went absolutely above and beyond from start to finish. She arrived early and brought all sorts of little tricks of the trade to make my party amazing ie. drink and food garnishes, miniature forks, and even a few mixers for drinks. She put together an amazing cheese platter that everyone was talking about. She made everyone feel welcome and there was never a moment where I worried about a thing - she was always on top of things. From watching if anyone need anything - to cooking more when we were running low - she even cleaned up the kitchen and stayed much longer then I told her I would need her. I have given her name to many people and I can't imagine having an event without her help. After learning that she is an amazing chef, I look forward to having her cater all of our future events. I am definitely one of the pickiest people you'll ever meet and don't typically write these reviews - so if I've gone through this much, you can only imagine how amazing Kristen truly is.
Chef DiMaria made a golf group of 10 a WONDERFUL dinner. The menu consisted of antipasto, salad, lasagne, chicken vesuvio, and cannoli. Wine and Sambuca was included in the price. The food was FABULOUS!! Frank did all of the clean up. It was a great way for a group to have a casual evening of fine food and socializing. It was one of the many highlights of our trip. I would do this again in a heartbeat.
I have a close relationship with many chefs around Chicago, a number of whom are Michelin Star holders, and Mark Avila is right at the top with these chefs. He’s well rounded, creative and has the insight and components to run a high end restaurant. He’s not just a masterful chef but also a creator of memorable experiences
Chef Mikey was great to work with. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. I already have a date set for our next event!
I really never write reviews, but Alvin Yu and his team were amazing! Our guests really raved about all the food. (I need to get his recipe for the Asiago Crusted Chicken Breast - so tender!). And his servers and sous chefs really made the event. Their attention to detail and lovely personalities really made the atmosphere. They were so helpful beyond what I could have even asked for. We had 2 passed appetizers, then salad, 4 entrees and 3 sides served family style for 44 guests and everything was delicious and well timed. Alvin totally understood what I wanted and was able to seamlessly accommodate special dietary needs. He was very responsive to all my questions throughout the planning process and seriously made the event really so easy on me! And they really made our guests of honor feel very special, too. They really go above and beyond. A huge thank you to Fyusion Dining for making our event such a success!
I did a one-on-one cooking lesson with Aakruti and it was really fantastic. Highly recommend.
On multiple occasions, we had Chef Ben into our home to cook for private dinner parties. He was very prompt and was sure to stay until cleanup was done. Ben interacted with our guests, and was sure to make everyone feel comfortable. From planning the menu to the presentation of the meal - everything was well done. The taste of the food was spectacular. We can't wait to have Chef Ben back to cook for us!
Fantastic food, professional presentation, overall an amazing experience. Chef David prepared a week of healthy meals for me, individually packed and ready to enjoy!
For me food is a way of coming together as a Family and Community. I do love comfort foods that many people grew up with, but I prefer to keep it on the healthy side. I prefer to cook either Vegan or Vegetarian, but I am more than familiar with traditional meat dishes as well. I love teaching people healthier dishes and a healthier way of eating. I know it can be a struggle because I've been there myself. So for either a small party of 20 or less, one on one lessons or a small group, I'd be happy to help you.
I am a private chef who uses only seasonal and fresh ingredients. All the menus are based on my clients' needs and dietary restrictions.
My personal involvement with the clients to suit each needs to their personality, wants, and needs.
All of our chefs have worked and trained in Michelin starred restaurants. We take the utmost pride in our work, and it shows in our food.
The saying we use at Fit Chef Chicago is: Good. Clean. Food. This simply means using the best and freshest ingredients combined with straight forward and simple cooking techniques to create meals that are not only delicious but also unpretentious and uncomplicated.
