My experience with Sara's Cooking was most positive. Our son and fiance sadly needed to postpone their wedding plans a few weeks before the actual wedding date. Because so many people had made plans, purchased airline tickets...etc. We decided to turn our lemons into lemonade by hosting a friends and family event on the date the wedding would have been. We had committed to having Sara's Cooking for the wedding and now we needed to switch gears in changing our venue. Sara graciously and easily accommodated our switch and do so with utmost kindness. The food was most incredible with an international flare, home cooked goodness and beautiful presentation. I purposely had chosen Sara's Cooking because her menu selections grabbed my attention right away. My husband and I were not disappointed and neither were our guests. The chefs are topnotch, pay careful attention to detail, friendly, fun and were most accommodating to all our needs as we hosted our gathering. I will always recommend them and use them again for future events.

We hired Chef Christo to cater our intimate at home wedding. I have many allergies including gluten and he worked with us to come up with a menu that would be good for everyone. He asked all the correct questions and we everything was done professionally, on time and the food was delicious. I would recommend Chef Christo highly!

Daniel is an accomplished chef and caterer. We have hired him for graduation and dinner parties and each time he has made each event spectacular to the point where all the guests asked for his contact information. Daniel's has a real talent for creating, cooking, seasoning and presenting plates that never disappoint. We do not hesitate to recommend Daniel to others and would and will hire him over and over again.

I truly enjoyed my evening out. Sarah is very warm & inviting. I asked for some soup & sandwich ideas, she had 2 soup & sandwich recipes which were fun & simple to follow. I was able to bring home lots of yummy food for my family to taste. I am glad I tried this because I feel I made a new friend. Sarah is passionate about cooking, & is a great chef!

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!!!!

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.
