We were fortunate enough to experience an outstanding dinner with Chef Jewel last weekend! She started off cocktail hour by passing around lobster tempura that was to die for. For dinner we had Spicy Broiled Redfish with a Crabmeat Beurre Blanc, pasta and asparagus; we were also served a Filet Mignon with Blue Cheese Demi Glaze, potatoes and green beans. Portions sizes were perfect! Dessert was Pots De Cream which was like a chocolate mouse, but a much fancier version that took her hours to prepare. I give Chef Jewel 5 stars for being a superb chef and a wonderful host. She was so sweet and friendly and really cared about providing the best services to all of us at the dinner. Great job! Thanks for a great night! Not only was her food to die for, but she was so friendly and made us feel special. She

A fantastic experience, all around. Effective communication prior to the day of the event. We had some ideas of what we wanted to have at our dinner party, but Chef blew us away with her suggestions based on what we asked for and our budget. We were thrilled with the food and our guests were definitely impressed. We'll most certainly be using her again in the future!

Chef Chris was fabulous!!! The food was really, really good and he is a super nice person. He fit in well with our family and we ended up having a "stand around the kitchen" type of very comfortable dinner party. There was only 7 of us celebrating my Mom's 80th birthday. Chef Chris was willing to spend a lot of time talking about the food and how it was prepared, so we all learned a bit about New Orleans cooking. I highly recommend him, especially an intimate dinner party, although I'm sure he could very successfully handle a much larger event.

I have the fortune of receiving a plate of food by this man who calls himself Chef P. I know him through his wife I work with her. I need to let you all know that I am an extremely picky eater but the food this Chef prepares is outstanding. I had a stuffed bell pepper for the first time in my life and it was absolutely delicious I ate the entire pepper. I had dirty rice peas and a salad and I can't wait for his food truck and then his restaurant because I will most definitely invest. Thank you Pho Pho for providing this incredible food experience and thank you Chef P! Outstanding!!!

Top 5 meals I've ever had in my life! Chef Gason was always very professional and responsive with any questions/concerns. One of our guests has a dairy allergy, and Gason was extremely accommodating. He was punctual, and reasonably priced considering the quality of the meal. Easily the highlight of our trip to NOLA. Gason is the best!

Chef Maras was our personal chef for my husband's 70th BD celebration. He helped me plan the menu and offered suggestions as to what sort of dishes would work the best for us. The dishes he prepared were amazing! Everyone complimented him on the delicious food and the presentations of the selections were very attractive. It felt so wonderful for us to know that our guests were so blown away by the food that they kept telling us that this party is awesome! Chef Maras' expertise and professionalism are commendable. Also, he is very approachable and easily offered ideas and advice to us and our guests on how the dishes were prepared. There is no doubt in our minds that Chef Maras made our celebration very memorable and a big hit with everyone there. We felt so happy that he made our party a big hit! I definitely would highly recommend Chef Maras to my family and friends. I can't say enough about how hard he worked and how flawlessly he executed the menu for us. Kudos to you, Chef Maras!

Chef Natasha is unsurpassed by no other chef I have dined with. She listened to my wants and created a most memorable, romantic dinner for two. A night to never be forgotten! Chef Natasha and the entire staff at Seasons of Louisiana are true professionals providing the very best in a one of a kind dining experience. My family and I look forward to working with them again soon.

Jeanne did a wonderful job for our lundi gras afternoon tea party. The food was delicious and a wonderful combination of savory and sweet flavors. She was very easy to communicate with, the food was delicious and affordable, and I would reccommend Gauthreaux's Gourmet Cuisine to anyone.

Chef Kimberleigh was amazing!!! My daughter has a chronic illness and was a student living on Tulane campus. Everything she ate made her sick and she was many times too exhausted to cook. Kimberleigh literally was the main reason we were able to keep my daughter at school. The entire semester she delivered hot meals and extra meals for the rest of the week or freeze. Every meal was different and every meal smelled great (lured my daughter to eat), delicious, organic and healthy and the ONLY food that did not make my daughter sick. She was very kind, on-time and provided little extras as well, bone broth, cookies, muffins for her entire suite. Just thinking how wonderful she has been brings tears to my eyes. We also used Kimberleigh for our last tailgate for my entire family- fabulous, hot and with lemon cupcakes- the best we have ever eaten! We had Beef and Barley soup last night that Michelle had frozen and we brought home...again it had a fabulous taste. Her cost was also very reasonable especially since she delivered to campus. We love you Chef Kimberleigh. Thanks for everything!
