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.

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

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!!!

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!!!

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!

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!

Blair is an amazing chef! She came into my air bnb and taught my group how to prepare all of our favorite foods! She was professional and fun. The menu was very diverse and handled the flow extremely well. I plan on working with Blair in the future. If you are looking for a chef to prepare a meal or teach a class she is your girl.

    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.

    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!

      Keith was our private chef for many years. In addition to cooking, he did all the shopping, menu planning and cleaning (kitchen and table) for our family (lunch and dinner). His meals were outstanding-very creative, healthy and perfectly presented. At the time, our children were small and sometimes picky. He was very flexible, sometimes making special meals for them in addition to ours. He is very organized, honest, hard working and pleasant to be around. I would recommend him to anyone.

      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!

      I hired House of Never a Bad Meal for my anniversary. We are from Texas and we wanted a New Orleans experience. They went above and beyond! They were a joy to have, they listened to us, and shared little pieces of themselves. Their passion for food really shined through. My husband and I thought that we were leaving after we ate but we were so satisfied that we stayed in. We will never forget the amazing food they provided for us and the thoughtfulness that they put into it. We will definitely look at other opportunities to hire them again. Amazingly delicious is an understatement!

      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.
