Wendy and her daughter catered a wonderful dinner for my sister’s bachelorette. Wendy was so nice to work with before the event and was awesome onsite. Her partner did an excellent job preparing a delicious meal. I highly recommend Wendy and Bill if you are looking to cater a dinner at home!

Sara and her staff did an absolutely fantastic job catering our wedding in late July, 2016. The event was at a small horse farm in Rehoboth, MA, and Sara planned a menu that perfectly reflected the verdant, warm and playful atmosphere of the venue. Throughout the planning process, she and her staff were swift to respond to any questions we had and were very transparent about all of the costs involved. They were incredibly friendly and professional, reflecting a true pride in their work. The event itself went flawlessly and all the guests we talked to (we had about 150) really enjoyed their meals and the buffet service was well run. In short, the food was excellent and the customer service, friendliness and overall professionalism were superb. I highly recommend hiring Sara and her crew to cater any special event!

Sarah was wonderful, our party of ten was larger than normal for her class but she said to come and she would accomodate us. She sure did, we all took a seat around the kitchen island and talked about how we were going to prepare and cook this meal (Italian). Sarah kept everyone busy preparing the ingredients while describing why and how she uses each piece, we sampled different flavors of olive oil and wine. Then we cooked and tasted each course while Sarah provided cooking tips and wonderful stories of how she got started doing this work. Next, we sat in her formal dining room, which seated 10 people easily, while Sarah served us the main course (Shimp Scampi) with wine and desert (Tiramisu). We all dressed in costume formalwear with the women wearing witches hats, Sarah found that amusing and wore a few hats of her own while serving. We all agreed that this was one of the best "reunions" we have had together. As we were leaving, Sarah presented each of the couples with a personalized apron and a book of recipes that we made that day. Keep up the good work Sarah. Fantastic.

William made my retirement party a HUGE success. I had an intimate group of people I worked with over the past 40 years from three different entities. The food was fantastic, the service excellent and when the meal was over the kitchen was immaculate. Highly recommend!! Thank you William and TJ!!

I want to recommend Paula as your personal chef. I needed a meal prepared for my family reunion. I was expecting 20 plus people. I only gave Paula a couple of ideas for the menu and she went way beyond my expectations with her service. The meal was superb. Food was prepared with fresh ingredients that she hand picked from local markets. Everything tasted delicious and the presentation of the dishes she served were magnificent. The portions were generous and yet not excessive. I got many compliments from many members of my family. Paula was punctual, courteous and very professional. She left a wonderful culinary impression of her professionalism and my kitchen clean and tidy, which to me was a plus. -Juan

Food was amazing! She was amazing! I really didn't know what I wanted and she help me through figuring out what would work for my dinner party of 10. I also have some complicated food restrictions and she very willingly work around them. We ended up with an awesome three course meal. Most important she was able to go with the flow, if I didn't have something she needed she worked around it, when guests hadn't pretold me what they don't eat she worked around it. Everyone had a great time and it was because of the food and the service. Highly recommended!!

I have known Tiffany a long time, we met in college, in Palmer, Alaska. While on a college graduation meal planning committee together, Tiffany's work ethic shined. She had great meal ideas and the ability to prepare the items for a large crowd with no problem. She was very thorough with her meal preparation, maintained a clean work area, used quality ingredients, and the food tasted wonderful!!!

Lily worked with us to plan a dinner party for 10, paying attention to every detail. She was able to accommodate dietary restrictions and plan a meal that was perfect and elegant. Her food was delicious and her suggestions for wine pairings were just right. Our dinner guests loved meeting her and she was very receptive to questions about the ingredients and cooking techniques used. It was a wonderful celebration.

    Don is absolutely the best home chef who has prepared full meals for our busy family. Everyone, from Mom and Dad to the kids ranging from teenager to toddler, raves about his delicious and well planned meals. As a testament, everyone would rather eat Don's home prepared meals than go out to a restaurant, especially if the meal if followed up by one of his wife's homemade cookies! His service allows us to eat fine cuisine together as a family without worrying about "keeping a lid" on the little ones at a nice restaurant.

    Dr. Alia Of Your Rx Meals went above and beyond to make sure my dietary needs were met. She offered food sensitivity testing, and then from there helped me find healthy yummy substitutions for foods I now need to restrict. She got my IBD in full remission through her nutrition and AMAZING meals! Highly recommend.
