Our vacationing family could not have been happier with the wonderful Wendy & Chef Bill in planning a birthday surprise for 2 of our loved ones. From start to finish, Wendy was so warm and helpful, providing many great suggestions from menu to decor and also helping to bring in the most beautiful beach-themed birthday cake! Chef Bill created a delicious and very memorable meal for our group; from a beautifully arranged table filled with a spread of appetizers, breads and salads to a mouth-watering barbeque dinner, we were in true food heaven! I must also add how great it was to chat with Bill and Wendy during our cozy event, it was like reconnecting with old friends. :) Both Wendy & Bill were awsome with the youngsters in our group, too; the kids were so tickled to be a part of such a big surprise (their table was also set so beautifully, which made the kids feel even more special!) It was truly a joyful event and an experience that we will be talking about for years to come! If our family vacations bring us back to Southern Maine, we would not hesitate to work with Wendy & Bill again and again! Thank you both so much and lots of wishes for continued success for years to come!
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.
We hired Christopher to cater our wedding last year. Though we had planned for an intimate 50-person event, we also had to deal with a broad mix of allergies, diets, and food preferences. After some discussion, we ultimately ended up with three entrees: a vegetarian eggplant curry, broiled salmon, and roast beef with mushrooms. Closer to the event, we also decided to add a charcuterie board to the spread. Having sampled everything on the day of the wedding, I can say without reservations that food quality was ultimately excellent across the entire menu; the beef was a particular favorite, but nobody walked away disappointed. Service was also great -- the servers and bartender brought on by Cristo were friendly, professional, and really helped take the event to the next level. Christopher himself was an incredibly patient and helpful presence throughout the planning process, even as we occasionally dithered on decisions. As happy as we were with the wedding overall, bringing Cristo's on board was definitely one of the best decisions we made. Highly recommended.
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!!!!
William came to our house to cook for my dads 60th birthday party. Our entire party came to the conclusion that this was one of the most fun nights of our lives. William was extremely personable, kind, and an outstanding chef. The food that William made was spectacular and the night could not have been any better. Thank you again to William for being extremely generous and overall an outstanding chef.
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.
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 created a selection of delicious food with quality ingredients for our New Year's party, and made it possible for us to relax and enjoy time with our guests.
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.
Wonderful food, amazing chef, super nice person!
professional chef with creative ideas and a passion for what he does. great chef!
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.
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
Ryan is a consummate professional whose devotion to his craft resulted in inventive, inspired and absolutely delicious food. We had the pleasure of hiring Ryan for an intimate event we were hosting to celebrate our marriage and throughout the entire process he remained reliable and engaged—consistently inquiring about food preferences and making suggestions based upon our responses. Logistically, he was responsive and reliable. Communicating with him was simple and he would always answer our inquiries with expediency and professionalism. Moreover, Ryan has the creativity to assemble a fantastic meal with as little or as much specificity as is given. We had guests who were vegans, vegetarians, and gluten/lactose free, as well as adventurous omnivores and I can say with honesty that at the end of the event, the component of the event that we heard most complimented was the food (from guests of all preferences). I would not hesitate to hire Ryan again and would urge anyone to seek him out for any event in which a fantastic culinary experience would be warranted.
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!
Don is an exceptional chef whose creative preparations rise to the heights of having your own personal, Michelin chef for the evening......truly incredible.
I highly recommend Sean for any occasion. Outstanding at his craft.
Christine and Dennis have been cooking for us for three years every other week. Terrific choices, healthy and tasty. We love them like family.
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!
