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!

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!!!

Before my girlfriend and I left New Orleans we had the pleasure of dining at both the public and private dining side of PDR. Everything we had was excellent and some of the best food I've had in New Orleans and the US.

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!

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 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.
