This was the first time we ever had a personal chef and we can not wait to have him again! We had a lot of food restrictions and everyone loved each course. He catered to our needs and all 7 were thrilled with the experience. The only thing I regret is I never got up from my throne in the dining room to see how he prepared every dish for each of us with amazing presentation. He even gave us a quick cooking class to prepare for our brunch the following day! Highly recommend!
Working with Aipyn has been a treat. I have used the company for two different parties. People from both parties are still talking about the food, the wonderful service, and the lovely chef. The food is beyond words. I can’t wait for my next event this summer. Best wishes, and thank you again.
Our entire experience with Five Continents was wonderful, from the immediate response to our Thumbtack request for a caterer all the way to their leaving our wedding celebration event site spotless at the end of the party. Chef Elona provided a fabulous menu that fit our requirement for all plant-based food. When we met with her to work out party details, she had a long list of food ideas and welcome suggestions for pacing the party and table arrangements. Elona assured me that I would have nothing to do but enjoy the party, and she was right. The food was abundant and absolutely delicious, all served at the appropriate temperature and time. She and two delightful yet unobtrusive servers moved us seamlessly through a half dozen of the most fabulous hot and cold appetizers, a buffet main course with a vegan meatloaf that was like a rich roast beef, and then on to champagne toasts and coffee and desserts and serving the wedding cake. Perfect service, simply fabulous food beautifully presented, happy guests and a thrilled hostess. Five Continents delivers as promised, taking care of all party details - with the added bonus of being professional yet pleasant and easy to work with. We are so happy to have found them on Thumbtack!
Don is an exceptional chef whose creative preparations rise to the heights of having your own personal, Michelin chef for the evening......truly incredible.
I really like this chef! My husband and I had the pleasure of eating a delicious and spectacular flavorful Mexican meal from this outstanding food connoisseur. "Farm-to-table" preparations, authentic and truly wonderful.
We are writing a recommendation for Gillian Nelson, who has been an excellent employee of ours for the past 8 years at our home on Nantucket. Gillian has served our Nantucket household skillfully, cheerfully and with a high degree of professionalism. There is simply nothing she can’t do, being an excellent house manager, chef, caretaker and caregiver who has a wonderful, , cheerful spirit and a continuous smile on her face. Gillian managed and ran a very busy summer household on Nantucket and wore many hats for the past eight years. She is an excellent chef and cook, and ran the kitchen for our busy summer household, creating fresh, healthy organic meals for 2 to 20 with seemingly little effort. Gillian is a joy in the kitchen and our many guests loved her spirit, warmth and delicious meals. Gillian managed and maintained a demanding household for two professionals who commuted and traveled away regularly, and managed and took care of a busy household of constant summer guests which required excellent organizational skills. Gillian is not afraid to work hard and dive in herself, being very hands on, tackling cleaning, housekeeping, carpentry, painting, oversight of construction and renovation projects, driving and maintaining cars and supervising the many vendors who serve the house, including lawn care, garden and pool personnel and tradesmen such as carpenters, plumbers, roofers, repairmen, etc. The Nantucket property is large and demanding. Gillian took care of every aspect of its maintenance skillfully and energetically. She also cared for 3 dogs at once, no small feat. There is nothing Gillian cannot do. We wholeheartedly recommend Gillian in any professional role be it as an estate manager, private chef, caretaker, or care-giving situation. She is unfailing honest and trustworthy, has a huge heart; she would be an asset to any private household. We know any future employer would be lucky to have as devoted and talented a helper as Gillian. We are happy to answer any questions or supply further recommendations. Please call 410 404 2004 or email firstname.lastname@example.org Stephanie and Erwin Greenberg
I just called on the services of Kevin and Sarah, two days before our anniversary dinner at our home. Kevin was very quick to respond, with menu options and a very reasonable price. Two days later, Kevin and Sarah showed up at our home and made the most amazing meal. Each course was absolutely delicious, from appetizer to dessert. The food far surpassed all of my expectations. My husband has been raving about the meal all day now. Then our dessert, mocha creme brulee, was exquisite! They then completely cleaned the entire kitchen and they were ready to leave by the time we finished dinner. Very impressed!! I would, without hesitation, recommend All Cape Personal Chef. You will not be disappointed!! Thank you, Kevin and Sarah, for such a wonderful evening! Much continued success!!

We hired Chef Andrej for our small wedding and to say it was excellent does not do it justice! From the day we made contact to the completion of the meal he was professional, courteous and accommodating. The entire meal from beginning to end was absolutely phenomenal ! We couldn't recommend him more!
Sean has been absolutely amazing! I reached out to Sean to help my parents learn how to cook healthier and tastier so they can utilize nutrition to beat cancer. Sean quickly went to work understanding my parents' needs, food preferences and requirements and came through with shining colors! Along with helping Mom become better in the kitchen with the nutritional diet changes, Sean prepared meals and recipes according to our palate and dietary requirements. Sean is truly committed and passionate in his work and he made the diet changes tastier and easier to adopt. Thank you, Sean!
What an unbelievable experience Chef William provided. Not only was it more affordable than my wife going out to dinner but he prepared a 5 course meal with an incredible flowerless chocolate cake for dessert. My wife and I don't get a lot of time together with small children. But this night, we got to lay on the couch together watching a movie while Chef Willaim prepared our dinner and it was a wonderful date. The food was absolutely delicious and the best part is he cleaned our kitchen better than we do. I can't recommend him enough to anyone that wants to either host a large fun party where he is teaching you how to cook or a private romantic dinner like we did. Forever grateful T&S.
Recently, I planned a wedding in just a month. Stressed, I turned to Shana/The Laughing Pickle for catering expertise. What we received was far beyond my (high) expectations. Her personality, willingness to meet, accommodating spirit and cheerfulness made a stressed time a pleasant experience. The presentation of the food was beautiful, tasteful and classy--but I already knew that was a trademark. What I didn't know was that she is the best at what she does and I didn't have to worry about ANYTHING. The variety of her menu leaves nothing to be desired. She arrived with a pre-planned menu which was perfect--I also didn't know HOW DELICIOUS everything would be. What do you usually forget about a wedding? You normally don't remember what you ate at the event. But if 'The Laughing Pickle' caters, you will remember!!! It was beyond delicious and guests are STILL talking about how good it was. As one guest stated..."I want to have an event so I can use this catering service". HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
