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.
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.
Aram and Sarah were fantastic and they served up an awesome Mother's Day brunch. Aram's creativity, skill and professionalism was unparalleled. I have hired many many chefs for various occasions but I would say we enjoyed the food and camaraderie of this particular meal more than any of them. i would highly, highly, highly recommend Aram if you have a private event and you need the best! - Rich
Our scholars are learning how to prepare easy recipes using fresh vegetables and fruits. Chef Karen has done an excellent job introducing our scholars to the proper techniques of chopping vegetables, mixing ingredients and creating mouth watering dishes. She has our younger scholars learn to create their own easy to mix tasting. Our scholars cooked up some delicious Tomato Soup. They chopped the vegetables themselves and were able to enjoy the fruits of their labor.
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.
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.
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.
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!
My wife and I had the Wood is Cookin experience recently and we could not have been more pleased. If you have yet to take advantage of this experience please do!!! The food is top notch, If I wasn't in my own kitchen I would think I was eating food from a 5 star restaurant. His seasonings, food temperature and care over the food is very professional. Definitely looking forward to the next one.
Delores Dowling is great to work with. Aside from making absolutely fantastic food she is very reliable. She is timely in getting back to her customers and you depend on a great product when you order with her! She knows how to keep food hot and ready for when you need it and is always on time. She also offers a variety of food. I was a part of a group of 50 people who had a catered dinner for 12 weeks from Delores and every time we were amazed at how delicious the food was on our budget. You can't get better than Delores!
Only chatted on the phone and had to postpone the experience. I would like to talk to some other chefs as well who might live closer
Tony is a great chef with a passion for his profession and wide range of techniques we hired Tony to cook for us on a weekly basis and he has been fabulous. my wife is special-needs for meals due to kdney issues of needing low potassium and Low sodium. He follows the diet and yet everything he creates is very delicious. He takes direction well the first week he use the space that were not very keen on and all I did was tell him that and he doesn't mind you don't listen to direction we're very happy with the work he does and his prices are extremely reasonable
Chef Val was truly a gem. She was very concerned about my event and that matters to me. She and her assistant were so pleasant and my guest and I enjoyed the food so much. We had a vegetarian menu, and Im not a vegan. However, my guest and I asked for seconds and thirds of Chef Val's delectable food. From the vegetarian gumbo to the sweet potato veggie burger and to top it all off for dessert vegetarian lemon pound cake and apple crisp, Delicious. Once again great service, great food, and lots of fun.
Chef Julie was hired to help our 4th grade Girl Scout troop earn their Simple Cooks badge. She taught the girls to make homemade ricotta gnocci with a creamy mushroom pesto, a baby kale & arugula salad with homemade viniagrette and cake pops for dessert. The girls were equally as interested in the climbing dome in the backyard as they were in learning to cook. Chef Julie was very patient with the girls and the food was fantastic. There was not a drop of gnocchi left, all of the at least tried the salad (I thought it was great) and of course the cake pops were a hit too! It was a learning experience for both of us. I would recommend Chef Julie!
My lovely Girlfriend brought Mariela in to cook for my 30th birthday and it could not have been better. She came over to our place, groceries and tools in hand, and put together one of the best meals we've had in a long long time. She also gladly cooked up pretty much everything she bought, so we've been eating leftovers all week. Don't hesitate to bring her in, you won't be disappointed.
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!
Fantastic food, professional presentation, overall an amazing experience. Chef David prepared a week of healthy meals for me, individually packed and ready to enjoy!
Can't say much- just eaten one meal and it was very nice
Kari was amazing. She was easy to work with and flexible. All my friends want to hire her. Love her work ethic and food was out of this world delicious. Hiring her in April
