Chef David is everything you would want in a personal chef and more. From the initial discussions surrounding planning of the event, to the final pull through of the event, everything was perfect. Chef David put together a well thought out menu for 11 guests for my Girlfriends surprise birthday dinner party. Each part of the meal was better than the previous and was topped off with an excellent desert choice. Needless to say, Chef David is my go to choice for personal chef moving forward! Highly recommended for any person looking at his services!

Carol was fantastic! She worked with me to put together a birthday brunch to remember for my mother in law, our family and friends. Carol was super helpful in creating a brunch menu with so many delicious options, including several dishes that were Keto friendly. The food was out of this world, everyone just raved about the meal and the service! I would DEFINITELY work with her again.

We hired Tracy to provide two dinners per week. I decided to let her "surprise" us with each meal. To say the least we have been more than pleasantly surprised with the quality, creativity, and heart that goes into every meal. Hiring Tracy has made meal time less stressful - best thing we ever did!

Hired Chef Frank to cook a meal for my Mom as a birthday present. First experience with something like this. She enjoyed the preparation in her kitchen and said the meal was good. My parents are diabetic so the menu was zuchini noodles in a tomato based sauce, chicken vesuvio (not spicy), and roasted cauliflower. They both liked it and it was fun to know they were doing something new even at 74!

When planning a party it's very difficult to find the perfect combination of professionalism and culinary expertise. I found both in hiring Chez Mikey. My guests and I were so impressed with Chef Mike's preparation of our appetizers and main entré. We began our dinner with a one bite amuse bouchée, marinated carrots and cucumber caviar tray. Beautiful and very delicious. For the entré we had the "Hunters' Trophy" (lamb chop on top of polenta and a slowly cooked chicken thigh). This combination was presented artfully; and more importantly this dish was so tasty that even the guests with whom lamb chops are not thier favorite protein, found the lamb chop tender and cooked to perfection and loved it. Chef Mike ended the meal with a special chocolate ganache celebration cake which left all my guests happily ending on a sweet note. When I have another event, I'm speed dialing Chez Mikey because he will soon be booked up. Chef Mike and Sous Chef Diana are top notch in making a party scrumptious and elegant without the worry.

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!

    We used J's for a block party and he was great. Even though the weather didn't cooperate, he soldiered on and gave us an amazing meal. The tacos (steak, chicken and pork) were delicious!!! Everyone loved it. I would definitely recommend J's for any of your catering needs.

    My family has loved getting meals from Carla’s Fresh! She has always been super accommodating with special requests too. The meals have been delicious and getting her meals weekly has made a huge impact on our family (much less stress/ time I needed to spend cooking). Portions are typically very generous. The food is prepared well and not too heavily salted- which is great! Communicating with Carla has been easy and I recommend using her services!! Favorite meals for my family included her stuffed peppers, various lasagnas, chicken cutlets, and beef with string bean/broccoli stir fry. Yum!!

    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.

    Nicole was such a great “find” on this app. She gave me a cooking lesson at my home and shared tons of wisdom and great ideas for bulk meal prep. I’m hoping to hire her again in the future. Thanks, Nicole!!

    Janet was absolutely wonderful. She helped prepare delicious food despite a very restricted diet, and was outstanding at teaching us ways to adjust recipes to fit our dietary needs. She cares deeply, and was a pleasure to have in our lives. The food was amazing!

      Look no further for the utmost professionalism and the best quality food/catering! I cannot rave enough about Michael! I hosted my baby shower at my townhouse in Lincoln Park. Most of my family is on the east coast, so the guest list was only about 20 people. I knew I didn't want myself or another guest to have to worry about cooking and a few of my guests have specific dietary restrictions so I wasn't comfortable ordering from a restaurant. One of my friends works at the law firm where Michael is the chef and passed along his information, letting me know he also caters these types of private events. Plus, she kept RAVING about how awesome his food is. Michael was so refreshing to work with from start to finish. He was responsive, detail oriented, and extremely professional (not to mention so friendly!) We had an initial phone meeting to discuss menu ideas, dietary restrictions, and theming. He got back to me with a preliminary menu (including a full ingredient list) and questions regarding what my kitchen was capable of (how big my oven is, how many burners I have, etc.) As I said, very detail oriented. He also came up with thoughtful, creative ideas for my friend's dietary restrictions so they could enjoy the "fun" treats, too! One of my favorite gluten free treats were his dark chocolate coconut tarts- totally delicious. The day of the shower he arrived right on time with everything we discussed for the final menu. He was professional and completely unobtrusive. He ensured all of the food was the correct temperature when served. He even came prepared with ingredient cards to put out with the food. Everything was DELICIOUS. But I think the best part of hiring Michael was that he left my kitchen SPOTLESS! I swear it was cleaner than when he started. Seriously, look no further for in-home catering. I already know who will do Baby Rose's first birthday party. I swear, Michael is Chicago's best kept secret.
