We enjoyed everything about our experience - from the communications before the date of the event, to the meal and service! It was a perfect evening!
Chef Aram Reed provided a fabulous experience. His menu and preparation were exquisite and he and his wife were organized and prepared the entire meal, set the table and cleaned up for a flawless party. They are both extremely nice and fun to talk with. The entire party went off perfectly and all the guests loved the food and service and ambiance. They do a fantastic job.
Kirk hed a private cooking lesson, at my home, for about 15 family and friends.Kirk spend about 4-5 hours with us. Kirk was on time and ready to go at our scheduled time. What impressed me most about Kirk was not only his creativity as a chef , but he was also extremely patient in answering all of our questions. He educated us on everything from what to look for in a set of knives to the importance of selecting the freshest ingredients. He talked us through everything that he prepared. The quality of the meal he prepared was delicious!!! Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend Kirk as a Chef.
Chef Damien was a pleasure to work with! I would highly recommend his services. We hosted a group of 18 for a formal four course birthday dinner at our home, and Chef Damien delivered in every aspect. Actually, he didn't just deliver- he surpassed our expectations. I should mention that I work in the hospitality industry, and that half of our dinner guests also work in the industry. Needless to say people had high expectations. Everyone was thoroughly impressed with Damien's friendly nature, cool demeanor and his warm hospitality. Not to mention the food was amazing! He really went above and beyond for us. We all felt like he was an old friend by the end of the night. Chef was totally flexible with changes and ran with everything we threw at him. It felt like he was having as much fun planning and delivering the meal as I was. Sometimes chefs can be a little touchy, or protective of their vision- in the way an artist might be. While I definitely qualify Damien as an artist in the kitchen, he was never touchy or negative. He was always super humble, kind and willing to go the extra mile. His passion for food and people is evident in his service. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!
Karen did a great job preparing a delicious meal for friends!
CHEF JOE IS THE BEST !! he will find a dish to please every palet no matter what your tastes are. He can seven get grown men & children to eat their veggies... and LIKE them.

Kristin has catered many events for me...from intimate family holiday dinners to a buffet for over 100 people. She is very professional and fun to work with. But most importantly her food is delicious and the presentation is outstanding. I've known Kristin for at least 10 years. I highly recommend her!
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 would like to thank you for catering my birthday party. Your menu is impressive and I was happy to see you were able to cook meal choices not on your menu. Your prices was very reasonable for the amount of people you prepared food for. Everyone that attended said your food was great and I will agree.You and your staff were very professional and showed true meaning to serves with a smile. I was impressed, I have your card, I will be in touch.
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.
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!
I had the pleasure of working with Chef Taryn on two different occasions. The first occasion was for a dinner party and I enjoyed that experience so much I hired her to cater an event for me as well. She is incredibly skillful in culinary arts and it was a delight to work with her throughout each event. Her ability to talk me through each course and deliver a meal that far exceeded all of my expectations was truly incredible. I highly suggestion hiring this talented professional Chef, I will again and again!!
Susan could not be more accommodating or pleasant. She asked copious amounts of questions to find out my food preferences and issues. She came to meet me on the first delivery and brought hot food ready for that nights meal. Of the food I've had so far, delicious. This is someone to high for all kinda of food needs.
I use my iPhone as I was planning to Naperville one day. I was looking for a vegan restaurant where I could have lunch. Tasha's healthy Soul came up. I called and immediately got a response from Tasha. I found out lots of good information. Based on what I found out, I tried her meals. She prepares them to the individual's needs. I have many many food sensitivities. I gave her the long long list. She prepared a weeks worth of meals for me. After the first week's fine menu, I purchased a second week. I am now enjoying that week's worth of meals. I had her prepare dinner only. It was so nice to come home and have a delicious dinner at the ready. This service is vegan and vegetarian and if one is inclined, there are meat options. She is a joy with whom to work. Healthy eating in this world is sometimes difficult. This is a service for which I am very thankful is in the area. She is very open to feedback. If there is something I liked a lot I told her. If there were items that were not quite two thumbs up, she wanted to know about that. Then she takes that feedback and improves the menu for the future. Peace
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!
The food is fantastic. That Chick Can Cook catered my daughter in laws wedding shower. Her ordevor was out of this world along with all the food she prepared. That Chick Can Cook also catered a luncheon for our school district. You must try her chicken sald.
Fantastic food, professional presentation, overall an amazing experience. Chef David prepared a week of healthy meals for me, individually packed and ready to enjoy!
With my busy schedule, it has been such a pleasure to have Larissa prepare meals for my family and I. While keeping flavor in mind, she also focuses on healthy, well balanced dishes that both the kids and adults rave over! I love that she makes it a priority to use as much fresh, organic and gmo free indrgedients as possible. We are so appreciative of her coontinued service, value and care she puts into her work. Thumbs up Larissa!
Chef Jen's cooking is wonderful! I work a variety of hours and I don't always feel like cooking. Born and Braised gave me the opportunity to have delicious, home cooked meals without any clean-up or actual cooking. Each meal I had was delicious. I was able to try things I've never had before along with delicious variations of some classics. The delivery is easy and I am able to pick when it's convienent for me! Chef Jen is professional, accommodating, and definitely knows her way around the kitchen. I can't wait to order from Born and Braised again!
