Jen is outstanding--responsive, creative, personable, and a very talented chef! Jen prepared a terrific dinner for 7 of us to celebrate a birthday at my home, and she made the evening an unqualified success. Jen is great to work with, she has a fun outgoing personality, she genuinely cares about the event, and she makes amazing food. I would not hesitate to hire Jen again! --KG

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!

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

John & Laurel (THE J&L) are fantastic to work with. They take a concept, add their own creative spark to it and deliver a product that exceeds all expectations. Laurel is organized and attentive, while Chef John is amazing. His flair for presentation gives a special look that adds to the taste of the food.

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.

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!

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 Coe worked with me to come up with delicious menus for breakfast and lunch at our annual golf tournament. Golfers, volunteers, club staff, and I were pleased with the variety and quality of his offerings. Stephen knows his stuff and works independently behind the scenes. Having him there was one less thing for me to attend to. Highly recommended!! Laurie Hannon, General Manager, The Hannon Foundation

I asked my daughter if she knew someone who could cook African rice. She mentioned that she knew someone who was a chef and started an catering company (Infuse Catering). My daughter spoke to the caterer and placed an order for Rice and Beef along with Shito. We didn't know there were 3 different types of African Rice. Although I received the wrong rice, I loved it. My daughter spoke with the caterer and they said that they would make me another to my liking.
