Great experience with Jessica. Jessica cooked at home for my wife's 40th birthday. I had ordered a surprise menu (I had only provided the wine list) and the surprise was just great. We have enjoyed every minutes and every bites of it! Jessica is a lovely person and a great cook! Fabien

Gloria is the best, I started with a quick google search and found thumbtack which linked me to her. After one phone call she knew exactly what I needed and delivered me an entire weeks supply pf food with a custom tailored menu only two days later I was amazed and after my fiance' saw how great the food was she joined the diet as well and we have both been eating glorias food for 3 months now with amazing weight loss results. Gloria is easy to work with and really goes above and beyond to make sure she delivers a very professional product.

I hired Gary for personal chef services and am very pleased. He makes nice, interesting food at a reasonable price. I have used him a few times and there is always great variety. He is willing to come up with a menu by himself but also takes requests. He clearly has a lot of experience. In addition, he can use many different flavors. Beyond all this, he is a genuinely nice person and is willing to go the extra mile to make sure that the customer is satisfied. I have used 2 other personal chefs in the past and I like Gary the best.

About

I put every ounce of my heart and soul into my cooking… as well as the presentation. I pride myself on feeding people delicious food and presenting it in a creative manner. There is nothing more satisfying than knowing you made somebody's event great because of the food. In my opinion, food is the focus point of any event and is the most talked about when the event is over. There is nothing worse than going to an event and saying, "the food was terrible."

About

What sets Juliana's apart is the authenticity of our food -- it comes homemade from our kitchen in a historic Colonial in Sudbury, MA. While the kitchen has undergone renovations to facilitate catering for 1,000+ person orders, the remainder of the house is a quaint Sudbury charmer that has been run as a Bed & Breakfast for decades. Julianas Catering takes tremendous pride in creating memorable events for our clients that combine delicious food, outstanding service, professional presentation and our philosophy of allowing our clients to enjoy their party and leave the rest to us. We take a meticulous approach in everything we do and leave our clients home or venue spotless before leaving. Juliana's Catering was founded with the goal of providing fresh, healthy food to residents of the greater Boston area and beyond. For us, food is personal; Juliana's is owned and operated by a loving family of 7 with catering & food service roots dating back generations. We strive to provide the freshest ingredients and a great experience to each and every customer. That's why we're constantly innovating with new and exciting variations on traditional American, Italian and Mediterranean cuisine.

About

I truly love what I do. All of our products are made from fresh from scratch (never frozen!) and you can tell the difference! We also customize every menu to accommodate our customers' tastes and needs. We make everything from hand-cut potato chips to sushi to everything in between. When we are at an event, we pay special attention to every detail-whether its the presentation of your buffet, the food itself and/or the exceptional service, you will be thrilled with every aspect! We look forward to making your event truly memorable - including the food, service and presentation. I really enjoy helping people and making them happy with my food. Hearing, "Wow, that was the best (you name it!) I have ever had, and I have had a lot of those!" is an incredible feeling. Likewise, having someone say, "No, I don't want to try that (whatever it might be)" because he or she "does not like it" and then getting them to try that food - and then hearing them say, "that is truly incredible!" is amazing. I also enjoy the freedom and creativity that goes into catering and assisting a client with building a menu. And, getting a client walking through the door (or on the phone) with little idea of how to put an event together to the end of the event is very rewarding. Seeing their concepts come together at the end, with my help - and food!-, makes me love what I do.

About

Donna and Visnja were amazing! It was my first timing looking for caterers and I had a great experience. I primarily spoke with Donna and she was so bubbly, polite, and professional. She was quick to answer any of my questions and was very accommodating. I had a large family party but did not want to have a formal sit down dinner, so I opted for 3 of their food stations-the boardwalk, the skewer and the salad stations. They set everything up buffet style so my guests could eat at their choosing. I got so many compliments on the food! I was especially pleased to hear that the vegetarians of the group loved having so many tasty options (from the salad station). Next time I need to cater an event I know who to call. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer!

I'm best known for deliciously creative, seasonally inspired menus using fresh ingredients, with cost-efficiency and presentation in mind. Having worked on private yachts/estates and in high-end resort and restaurant service, as well as events, gives you a broad range of service styles, and menus allows us to ensure that you get a 5-star service with a seasoned professional. Large gatherings or intimate, we have you covered. Due to some of my more private clients, I have a (TWIC) card, which requires a full background check.

About

Chef Marty and his team provided appetizers, main meal, desserts, bar service, linens and dinnerware for our recent Holiday Party_12/6/13. Chef Marty was a delight to work with, he was responsive to our menu requests & updates; the request for a vegan meal was provided without a hitch. Pricing for our Holiday Party was fabulous, as a volunteer organization, we are always looking for the best for our dollars. The best review to offer was the request for business cards from the attendees! The serving staff were friendly and accommodating to last minute requests. I will keep Malone Catering's contact information near by!

I highly recommend Karen. She is a talented chef and has never disappointed me. I have used her for my wedding, a funeral, small work functions, and individual meals and have no complaints. She does well both when asked to cook something specific and at coming up with creative ideas for your event. She is impressively calm in even the most pressured situation.

Grace was friendly, prompt, easy to work with and most importantly, her food was delicious! I had very little information on the types of guests who would be coming to my event when we first started talking, but she was able to craft a menu that appealed to many types of guests while also being exciting and tasty. I'd definitely recommend her and work with her again.
