From the first phone conversation with Mike Watson I knew our evening was going to be great. He was very professional but so easy to work with. When the night came both Mike & Derek showed up with tools in hand and ready to entertain. Our friends were very impressed as were my husband and I. Mike & Derek were fun and invited us to test taste what they were preparing. We all discussed restaurants and downtown Chicago. Theyre background experience is just so off the charts. Who wouldn't want these two in their home cooking for them. Price was very reasonable and the food was outstanding. Good time was had by all and I'd definitely hire them again. Thanks Mike & Derek for making my lifetime wish such an enjoyable one. Patti Limbach

My experience with Chef Aram was A+++. Chef Aram did a cooking demonstration and cooked dinner for a small group for my wife's birthday. The food was fantastic and the cooking demonstration was a huge hit with my wife and her family. We will definitely be using him again!!!

Sorry about being a little late to review, but Carol is outstanding. We used Carol to prep and cook for my son and his wife's baby shower at our home. Carol came to the house the day before and did the prep work and cooked for 70+ people on the day of the shower. She was punctual, professional and efficient. We would recommend her and cannot wait for our next event to use her again.

My husband and I hired Tracy to prepare two dinners per week, to be dropped of at our River Forest home. Her recipes are outstanding and the food is very fresh and seasonal. The meals include a salad w/homemade dressing, along with the main course and different side dishes. Plus, Tracy is an extremely nice person who was on time, with all the items and directions clearly labeled. We were very impressed and will definitely call her again.

Chef Frank was very professional and quick to respond to all queries. He was flexible in scheduling and location and considerate given that we were in the middle of moving houses. The lesson was a birthday present for my 9 year old daughter and he made it an event to remember. I would highly recommend Chef Frank for cooking/baking lessons.

I have had the pleasure of enjoying food-related events Andrew has produced, such as "Desserts for Deserts", and I have had the pleasure of experiencing more intimate dinners that he has hosted. He is an exceptional cook with refined taste and an encyclopedia knowledge of beer and coffee. I often seek his recommendations for those last two!

I have greatly enjoyed every one of over 20 meals prepared for church groups of 25-40 people at a time over the past year by the owner of D'licious Treats, Delores Dowling, and her assistants. The variety was great, the food delicious and healthy, and the service was reliable, on-time and friendly. Home style cooking at its best!

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.

Brian came to my house to cook for a group of 8 of us my boyfriend's 30th birthday. Everyone could not stop raving about how great the meal was and how impressed they were. The quality was amazing. Everything was super fresh and delicious! He even sent us the recipes after the meal (per our request). Would highly recommend him and would definitely use him for future parties/events!

Chef Gretch cooked for my family on many occasions, and her work was amazing! It was such a treat to have someone else do the cooking and planning, even when our little vegan was visiting! And she was able to vary and change the menu to use less cheese, less dairy, etc. for the other picky people in our family. She was always on time, and her prices were so much less than trying to do it myself! I'll definitely have her cook for us again!

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!!
