Jen was so great! She showcases her amazing personality in her food & no one is left hungry after an event by her. I can't wait to use Jen again for a house warming party. Truman, her dog will be getting an invite! Hats off to Chef Royle.

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.

Chef Cristo was fantastic and easy to work with. He met not only my initial requests but was flexible to add items as I had new ideas. He traveled to my house in a snowstorm to deliver and ensure that my party went off without a hitch! I would use him again in a minute!

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.

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.

Beth has been very easy to work with, and we love her food. She is extremely flexible, and is willing to either cook at her own home and deliver, or cook in your home. She will either provide you with a menu, or let you send her recipes! And the food is delicious and healthy. We're glad we found her and decided to give a personal chef a try! It's really helped the weeknight dinner rush and made evenings more enjoyable with the family since we can focus on being together after a long day, rather than worrying about what's for dinner!

    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.

    First I want to start off by saying thank you so much Francesa. This was my first time hiring a chef and using this website. I tried to book her since Monday but I was terriable with communication. I finally reached her Thursday via phone which was the day I actually needed her. I was also at work and only could talk for a few minutes. I quickly expressed how much I wanted to surprise my mom and quickly told her my moms favorite food. Believe it or not she was available and took on the job. I also texted her during the day just to make sure it wasn't a scam. She was great she kept reassuring me everything will be perfect. Francesa arrived on time and immediately starting cooking. She was quite in the kitchen and didn't bother anyone she brought her own ingredients and also left the remaining ingredients for me to use at a later time. Dinner was perfect she also simg to my mom (bless her beautiful voice) and CLEANED!!! job well done I will book again

    My daughter loved all of her birthday cakes from Melany's Designs and Cakes! She always insisted on having one from Melany. The cakes were works of art!
