My husband and I decided to host a housewarming/fall party and we knew we wanted to serve hors d'oeuvres and cocktails. When we spoke with Jen, we knew she was just the kind of chef we were looking for with her awesome suggestions of appetizers and such a large range of options. We wanted appetizers that were fun, easy for people to pick up, and of course delicious! Jen went above and beyond spending time perfecting our menu and touching base with us before beginning her food prep. She worked her tail off all evening at our home to make sure anything that left her kitchen was freshly made and just right. We would recommend Jen to anyone looking for a talented, innovative chef who takes pride in her food and her work. We can't wait to have her cook for us at our next event!!

I Could say all in one word... AMAZING..... The experience we had with Chef Daniel as outstanding, we were afraid of hiring someone for this party so we asked him to do a Sampler Dining for us before the party, he came to my house and cook for us the same dishes he offered for the day. Every single dish was Delicious... and from the sampler we had tons of left over. On the day of the party he was here on time, his crew is also Amazing, very friendly, Clean, Nice, helpful etc... Chef Daniel took over my kitchen and cooked for 60 people without interrupting me or my wife asking things from the kitchen, he was able to figure out ever single detail in my kitchen and he left everything in the same way he found. Clean and Organized. All my guests were impressed with the quality and taste of the food and service. I really recommend and will definitely hire him again for any future event. Thanks Chef Daniel and Team. Best Eduardo and Gabriela Muniz

We are very excited to have our own New Hampshire Chef right in our back yard. Sarah has excelled in making 50 people on one occasion extremely happy and delighted with her appetizers created and cooked to our specification. Delicious and high quality. Lamb lollipops are one of the 5 stars on the menu. It is a delight to have Sarah, someone who can help with taking the stress our of cooking when you are having a event. Great for individuals when there is not time for cooking. Highly recommended.

SUPERB!!! I live in Los Angeles. I wanted to hire a personal chef for my boss who lives in Massachusetts for her birthday. As I was talking with many chefs, Julie (from Manda & Me) totally got what I was trying to do immediately and took the ball and ran with it. I wanted to incorporate my boss's kids and dogs as I know that they are extremely important to her. She knew exactly what to do down to the serving dish specifically for the dogs. To hire a personal chef for your boss from across the country has several risks and I have to say that this one paid off a hundred fold! I would highly recommend Manda & Me as a personal chef. They are amazing and it was worth every. single. penny. Thank you!!!!

Lori, her partner Sam and her staff made my small event seamless. Lori and I were able to effectively communicate via email and text a half a dozen times in the span of 17 days which proved a tremendous value for me in terms of my time and energy. The team were prompt, professional, friendly, anticipated my needs and stayed on top of everything all night. They met and exceeded all my expectations and received rave reviews from my 50 guests. Chef Jim and Crew Debbie and Jim - I welcome you back anytime. It was so much fun to work with you. Chef Jim - The food and presentation was awesome and abundant. Thank you! Debbie and Jim - thank you for staying on top of the time and making it effortless for me to stay on schedule and stlll be able to enjoy the party with my guests. I look forward to working with all of you again.

Renee Scharoff is a world class chef with a client base that reflects this from both here and abroad. Renee has been our personal chef for a number of years having pursued a relationship with her after an event we attended where she catered. Her culinary repertoire is sophisticated, inventive and always savory. Importantly, this is coupled w/ a keen perception of individual tastes and health considerations. She is extremely talentd, reliable and flexible adapting to need: personal chef, dinner parties, holiday event deliveries or formal events. I can think of nothig that would not have her meet the highest of standards. We live in Brookline, Mass.

Chef Stephen is a very talented Chef. We met 11 years ago and Chef Stephen gave me many cooking lessons in my home in addition we worked on special projects in public schools, catered dinners, culinary outings and a whole lot of fun and learning. My teenage son has taken cooking lessons and loves every taste and the fun and seriousness of Chef Stephens approach to teaching. I think Chef Stephen has an esthetic that pleases the eyes, the mouth, the tummy and many many people off all ages...we think he is a gift to the Culinary World!

Shamia provided a delicious buffet for my son's wedding brunch for 15 people. She even took the time to transfer additional food onto her serving platters to make everything look just right. People loved the food, which included beef tenderloin with horseradish sauce, an arugula, goat cheese and pear salad, a roasted sweet potato and mango salad, two kinds of delicious frittatas (which the bride said were the best she had ever tasted), and potatoes au gratin. She also prepared a two-layer green-tea cake with buttercream and coconut frosting that was perfection. She brought a lovely server, Paula, with her to handle all the details of prepping, keeping things fresh, and cleaning up. We had mountains of leftovers, and everyone was delighted.

Chef Reed and and his staff of culinarians and service staff provided a wonderful holiday feast for Phillips Exeter Academy. The attention to flavor profiles, detail in execution in all the selections were exceptional. Chef Reed attended all planning meetings, developed all the menus based on a shared vision while providing timely quotes. The wait-staff were professional, well presented and attentive to guests while ensuring the food presentation were maintained. I would highly recommend Thyme and TIDE Catering.
