Jen is the one of the greatest things to ever happen to me. She cooks delicious food, has large portions and brings it to my place with a smile. Exactly what i had in my mind with a personal chef. Looking foward to the future of eating all her food all the time!
Chef Cristo and his team did a great job catering my son's 1st birthday fiesta! The quantity and flavors were great and they did an excellent job serving and telling folks what everything was etc. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food! I would highly recommend Cristo's kitchen to anyone and will likely use them in the future!
Was nervous about hiring someone but turned out Wonderful!! Excellent dinner and real happy with Sarah! Would recommend again!
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!!!!
We had the pleasure of hiring Cameron Daly for our engagement party back on March 21, 2015. From the first email to execution Cameron and his wife Christine were amazing!! They both take such a personal interest in ensuring our party was an event our guest and ourselves never forgot with their amazing culinary items! We chose Cameron due to his willingness to sit down and let us know more about him and his wife Christine and always answered every email or picked up the phone right away with all our questions. We had 50 friends and family at a private home and they executed the food and service like we were in a 5 star restaurant. They came with everything you would need in order to ensure your home was never disturbed and when they did need the kitchen they left it cleaner then it was before they got there. We even utilized the service of their bartender Nigel who happens to also be there son and he was a fan amongst all our guests! We would highly suggest Cameron Daly for any party and will be hoping to use him again down the road for other parties we will have. Please feel free to contact us for references and we will be glad to recommend Cameron!!
William has been providing personal chef services for my family for a few months now. I can't say enough positive things about him as well as his food! It is like bringing a five star chef into your home. William's food is superb - expertly made, beautifully prepared and plated (if you want) and delicious. William is a pleasure to have in our home as well and works with you to develop the menu and is open to suggestions and feedback. I would highly recommend him for catering and personal chef services.
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.
Chef Randall is one of the best services I've contracted. He was professional, punctual and an exceptional chef. I've contracted his services 3 times now and he out does himself every time. Chef Randall will be my go to personal chef and caterer for a long, long time.
Wonderful service! Our guests at are 20th anniversary loved her and the drinks were great!
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.
Benjamin catered a fantastic selection of delicious healthy items at our holiday party. He timed the food perfectly and made sure the party flowed. He is delightful and a gifted chef. He will be our go to chef for all events!
Extremely Competent and Talented - Delicious food - Impeccable professionalism - Very Reasonable Pricing Expertise in the field is immediately evident. Upon our first call, I knew Deirdre was highly capable of handling our event. Her years of experience have made her confident in her execution - which made me as a client secure and calm that Slavin in the Kitchen would handle our event as anticipated and without incident. This particular event that we hired Deirdre for was a very personal one - a Celebration of Life gathering at our home after my Mother-in-laws passing. I desired a very specific passed hors doeuvres menu to honor my Mother-in-law to include her favorite foods. Deirdre didnt blink. She was completely amicable with creating offerings that are not typically on her appetizer menu. She made excellent suggestions and designed special hors doeuvres just for our memorial. We certainly didnt provide her with the best working conditions - and she didnt even shrug! I requested that she work out of our garage so that guests could have full use of our kitchen. She did so flawlessly and to boot - when she left, you would have never even known she was there! I would have been happy to rent cooking equipment for her to use, but as an added bonus - she had it all in her inventory and brought it with her. Our guests were swooning over her cuisine! I received MANY compliments on how delicious folks found her cooking to be. Guests even took her name and number so that they may hire Slavin in the Kitchen for future events. I am still dreaming about the Curried Chicken Tartlets and the Masala Chai!! SO TASTY!! I need to note how lovely and professional her Serving staff were as well! As an Event Planner, Ive experienced that even if the Chef is professional and capable - the crew they bring to serve isnt always as fabulous. That was certainly not true of Slavin in the Kitchens Servers. The two ladies were courteous, crisp, polite and gracious. They knew the tone of the event and were overwhelmingly sensitive to our family and guests. I was delighted with how our event was handled by Slavin in the Kitchen. I will hire Deirdre again and I implore you to too! Taylor Singh Owner, Avasara Events
Beth has been amazing to work with! We started with one meal plan and then I decided to change to a stricter diet plan and she was beyond flexible with the changes. Her food is amazing and I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a personal chef.

Mary is an amazing chef using only the best quality products creating awesome and delicious meals. Having worked with her on several occasions I can truly recommend her, you and your guests will be surprised by her creations and remember this culinary exploit
I had the pleasure of experiencing Chef Stacy's food at a local restaurant, and it was absolutely delicious! A few months down the line, I opened a business and needed a caterer for my grand opening. I contacted Chef Stacey in hopes that he provided this kind of service.. Thankfully he did! From the first consult until the end of the event he was extremely professional, pleasant, the array of food that I could choose from and that he provide was amazing, his table and presentation of the food was flawless! My customers and I was extremely happy with his service that evening! So much that when I moved locations of my business, that we hired him again!!! I would definitely recommend Chef Stacy for your catering needs!
Christine and Dennis have been cooking for us for three years every other week. Terrific choices, healthy and tasty. We love them like family.

Attention to detail and creative flavor pairings..DELICIOUS!! and Great personality, would definitely work with him for my next event!
Something Savory was very helpful in planning and executing catering for party of 100+ Jodi personally delivered the food and helped setup the dishes. She was a big help in pulling off this party!

The Valley Bowl is a locally-owned personal chef service offering delicious meals made from local and organic ingredients. We all know the importance of gathering around a table for a nourishing, home-cooked meal. Weve all come to understand that the best food is local, organic food cultivated in ways that are good for our bodies and the earth. And we all know how a delicious meal can erase a hectic day at work or a rocky day at school. But the truth is that many of us simply do not have the time, energy, or resources to scour farmers markets for fresh, organic produce or find a local farm that raises all-natural meats and poultry. Most of us do not have the time to cure our own meats, craft delicious cheeses, or make batches of fresh baked breads and cookies. Most of us do not have the desire or the skill to create dishes that are wholesome and unforgettably delicious! Fortunately, the Valley Bowl will do it for you. Without having to drive from the farm to the co-op to the specialty store, you and your family will enjoy amazing meals that are created especially for you. The Valley Bowl uses almost exclusively organic, always fresh produce, naturally raised meats and dairy products from local vendors, including Simple Gifts Farm of Amherst and the River Valley Market in Northampton. We will use these fresh, local ingredients to prepare thoughtful and scrumptious dishes in your kitchen and then pop them in your fridge or freezer so that theyre ready when you are. No pots and pans to scrub, no messy kitchen to clean, no more fast food or bad take-out and best of all, no more spending every night slaving in the kitchen when you could be relaxing around the table with family and friends. All you have to do is set the table, turn on the music, and uncork a bottle of wine.
