Holli put on an incredible experience for my family! 25 adults gathered in NOLA to celebrate our parents 60th anniversary. I chose Holli to be our private chef and to cook 3 major meals over the weekend we were in NOLA. She also bought groceries and wine and spirits and restocked the whole weekend. I chose Holli because I knew she would care about the quality of the event and would deliver a remarkable experience. The reviews about Holli demonstrated how professional she was and how she ensured that the event was a success. Holli and Tony did not disappoint. We had 3 incredible meals with the menus all offering the local cuisine. Her presentation of the meals was fantastic and we will remember this experience she provided to our family for a very long time.The caterer also had to please 25 adults all with different tastes. Well Holli blew everyone away with her phenonminal meals. We would hire Holli in a second if we needed her services again but we live in Canada so we won't be able to use her services unless we come back in the future. If you want a chef who will make your event a really special experience then I recommend you hire Holli. Thank you Holli!
Wendi was fantastic in preparing meals for me as a personal chef. She was utterly reliable & the meals were delicious. Wendi made sure to accommodate my food allergies with prepared menus. She delivered all of the meals & made sure that I had all of the proper instructions for tasty meals. I have also had the pleasure of enjoying Wendi's delicious catered creations at work & social events. She has a knack for creating menus with a lot of variety & flavor & has some amazing authentic cajun recipes. I would highly recommend Wendi as a personal chef as well as a caterer for larger affairs.
Chef Jewel is an outstanding private chef! We held a small dinner party in Baton Rouge last night where we had a five course meal that was all prepared, cooked, and served in the comfort of our home! This was, hands down, the best birthday gift I could have gotten! Chef Jewel and I came up with a French themed dinner menu that included gougeres, caramalized onion tarts, roasted beet salad with white balsamic vinaigrette, seared scallops with mushroom risotto and asparagus plus lamb chops with potatoes dauphinois and green beans. All finished with a chocolate pot de creme! Everything was so delicious that we cannot decide what our favorite was!! Chef Jewel and her server did such an outstanding job (she even helped with the wine pairings!) we cannot wait until we find an excuse to use her fabulous services again!!
ChefConi has been preparing our meals every week for the past month. It has been a great experience and we look forward to the meals each week. Coni takes the time to ask your likes, dislikes, and requests. We love the variety and freshness of each meal. Coni is a great chef and it is a pleasure getting to enjoy the meals she prepares.
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.
The PDR held a series of dinners here in Mobile and my wife and I went to several of them. Rita had a wonderful personality and made you feel like a guest in her home. The food she prepared was amazing: it was both approachable to the casual diner as well as it was innovative and exciting to the more experienced foodie. We all wish the PDR would return!!!
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!!!
Reliable and efficient. Served as a personal chef and meals were tailored to our needs! Food was delicious! Most personable! Catered several large social gatherings with expertise!! Would love to have her back in my kitchen again!!
Melissa was excellent!! I will have her cater my next event, too!! Awesome meal. All my guests were happy, full, and impressed.
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 Gason Nelson was fantastic! I was in New Orleans with 10 other ladies for a bachelorette, and after a long day out in the French Quarter, nothing was better than being able to stay in on our last night and enjoy a 4-course Cajun meal. Chef Gason and his two assistants arrived early to prep and set up, and we got started right on time. He made accommodations for a couple of the ladies who were gluten-free without affecting the rest of our meals, which was very appreciated. The gumbo was delicious, the red velvet bread pudding was incredible, and overall, it was the best meal of our trip. It was also great not having to deal with reservations or cabs for such a large party. We all would highly recommend him again, and wish we would have done this our first night in town so we could have just asked him back all 3 nights!
I can only describe our evening with Sunshine as outstanding. She prepared a New Orleans-inspired 6 course meal to celebrate our elopement, and it was like sharing an evening with an old friend. The food was delicious, and Sunshine herself is a pure delight to spend hours with talking food, history, and anything else. I cannot recommend her more!
This is an outstanding catering service. Selecting Gourmet On-The-Go Catering made my friend's bridal shower a hit! The food was well-prepared and service is awesome and great. All our guests were extremely impressed with the taste and flavor. I would recommend them to anyone looking for professional service.
Cindy came over to my house to teach me how to cook gumbo. She went over the history of the dish and the various ways it could be prepared (Cajun versus Creole, etc.). It was a great experience and I will definitely have her over for another cooking class soon!
Chef Derrick absolutely killed it for my sister's baby shower. The Shrimp & Grits "Shooters" were the talk of the shower. Derrick was very helpful in assisting us with our menu selections (the shooters were his idea). His pricing wasn't the cheapest (which his initially admitted) but the quality of his work and his attention to detail is unmatched. We now regularly utilize Chef Derricks meal prep service.
Very tasty meal conveniently delivered to my doorstep! Matthew was polite and receptive to what I wanted even making a substitution on the menu when I requested. Great job!
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!
Wow! It was my pleasure to attend an event hosted by Chef Amy Sin and Langlois! Ours was a luncheon held in an amazing courtyard venue in the historic Treme neighborhood. Presentation was excellent and the food was delicious. For me, the best part was watching Chef Amy open the bottle of champagne with a knife! It didn't hurt that all guests were able to participate a little bit with the food prep and I am happy to say I made new friends that day. I hope that I will be able to enjoy Langlois and food personality Chef Amy again sometime in the future! I had a blast!
Keely was so professional and delivered beautiful hors d'ouevrs and tended bar with style and grace! She has a great sense of humor and my guests were entertained, well fed, and couldn't stop talking about the cocktails. Highly recommended- she delivered a prepped meal as lagniappe and it was so healthy and well balanced that I can't wait to use her delivery service.
Chef Ed demonstrates a care and attention to detail that transcends the "dining experience" and includes a long-term journey with the dining consumer. He's a hands-on quarterback leading his team to incorporate taste, presentation and health into each meal while inspiring ways to eat well and live well far into the future.
