I have a client that has multiple dietary restrictions. After meeting with Chef Amy and discussing the various restrictions with her,she assured me she could do the week long servicing of my client. She prepared the menus without gluten, dairy, soy, wheat and MSG. Shopped everyday and provided dinner service. My client throughly enjoyed their experience with Chef Amy. Enjoyed the food as well as the professionalism. I will call on her whenever it becomes necessary again. Thanks again Chef Amy

I found DelishNOLA & Chef Holli just randomly on thumbtack.com, but THANK GOD I did!! I needed someone who would take the "leap of faith" and offer their services to an apartment INSIDE the French Quarter DURING Mardi Gras!! I received a lot of refusals from others but Chef Holli was ready to take it on and do the job. She was quick to respond to emails and designed a menu according to my budget. She was very accommodating regarding changes I wanted to make to the menu and didn't hesitate one bit. The food was delicious and everyone later as raving about the food. I highly recommend her for your next gathering or party!

My family and I hired Chef Gason to do a private dinner party while vacationing in NOLA. Chef Gason was punctual and professional once he arrived. The food was delicious and everyone was pleased with the outcome. Ms V (NC)

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!

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!

We hosted a dinner for 6 in our home and Chef Jewel Robinson was spectacular! We didn't have to do a thing, but enjoy the wonderful appetizers, entres and deserts she pre[ared from all fresh ingredients.Yes, I said entres. Instead of 1 entre, Chef Robinson prepared 2. Usually I can say what I liked best, but in her case averything was equally delicious. Thank you Chef for making it such a memorable and enjoyable experience.

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!!!

Rita cooks some of the best food I have ever eaten. I went to a pop-up dinner and every course was on point! The service was great. Food comes out with perfect timing. The food at The PDR shop in the St. Roch Market is delicious too. Love the chicken sandwich.
