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.
A buffet dinner for a dozen or so business colleagues on the deck in my backyard: I decided I wanted to visit with folks rather than be stuck in the kitchen. After posting on Thumbtack, Sara's Cooking responded promptly. They listened well, proposed a menu and fair price, responded cooperatively and collaboratively to special diet requests etc., and then catered a terrific, tasty meal that the guests and I enjoyed greatly. Prompt, friendly, thorough, all in all a great experience.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Paula has cooked for our family for over a year and it has helped us so much! Her cooking is very good, and she provides variety to our diets in a way we certainly would not do. She is incredibly flexible -- always checking in several days ahead to customize the menu for what we want. She shops, cooks and cleans and leaves meals for us...so helpful in our very busy dual career lives. She is extremely reliable, and she is very personable and is just nice to have around. I recommend her for your family! Jen, Lincoln MA
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.
I have been using Jill to prepare meals for my family and extended family for over a year now. She makes a variety of food always delicious, always healthy, and always custom to suit our choices. Sometimes we get on the vegetarian kik and she prepares the most delicious vegetarian meals. Sometimes we get on a paleo diet kik and she prepares carb free meals that will knock your socks off. When I am entertaining, Jill even prepares meals to assist in my crazy work load. I find her food to be beautifully prepared, and always really diverse. She is generous with her time and an asset to my life and anyone who uses her. My favorite ? Chocolate mousse! And, the most amazing gluten free healthy cookies you'll ever have. Jill prepares meals twice a week for my family and I recommend her to everyone I know .....an angel bearing food, she is a blessing in our lives. In fact, we call her the food fairy as she even helps with our groceries! Thank you Jill. We are grateful for you and all you do
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.
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 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!
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
Food was delicious and Ben was a breeze to work with!
I have been working with Erin on developing healthy diet and exercise habits for about a year and a half. Before working with Erin I would spend hours online searching for a regimen that promised to deliver the results I wanted in a short period of time. While those plans weren’t necessarily ineffective for me, Erin showed me real and practical steps to take to reach any fitness goal I wanted, stretching far beyond a several week plan. She is encouraging when I am feeling frustrated from a bad workout, patient when I ask the same nutrition question over and over, and passionate about her work and the lasting success of those she helps. I am forever grateful for all of the help she has given me.
Matt is the consummate professional, with a great culinary sense as to what would work best with a large and diverse group. We were dealing with a lot of different types of foodie personalities and Matt helped us come up with a tasting menu that made sense for everyone. Even more important, once the dishes were decided upon, his execution was flawless. I would say that some of his suggestions were the stand outs of the evening, so i will just let him come up with the menu next time. Thanks for making our evening memorable and tasty
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
This was hands down the best experience I have had working with any company. Meghann and Nick are incredible at what they do an offer so much more than just good food. With out them our dream wedding wouldn't have been half the success that it was. I will be looking for excuses to use their services again in the future!!!
I make wedding cakes and fancy pastries. I am also a gourmet cook. I can design a menu for an event. I was trained in Europe, and I am a professional chef.
