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.
My friends and I enjoyed our dinner together. I liked the environment that we cooked in. The chef was very knowledgeable and we all enjoyed sharing in the cooking. One of the items was a new recipe that she tried on us that did not turn out well and the dinner also took longer than expected. I appreciated the price she gave us and thought that was reasonable considering the entire event.
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.
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
This was the first time we ever had a personal chef and we can not wait to have him again! We had a lot of food restrictions and everyone loved each course. He catered to our needs and all 7 were thrilled with the experience. The only thing I regret is I never got up from my throne in the dining room to see how he prepared every dish for each of us with amazing presentation. He even gave us a quick cooking class to prepare for our brunch the following day! Highly recommend!
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.
professional chef with creative ideas and a passion for what he does. great chef!
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.
Gloria is the best, I started with a quick google search and found thumbtack which linked me to her. After one phone call she knew exactly what I needed and delivered me an entire weeks supply pf food with a custom tailored menu only two days later I was amazed and after my fiance' saw how great the food was she joined the diet as well and we have both been eating glorias food for 3 months now with amazing weight loss results. Gloria is easy to work with and really goes above and beyond to make sure she delivers a very professional product.
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.
Great food, reasonably priced and great customer service. I couldn’t have picked a better chef or catering service.
I can’t say enough good things about Katie Barry! Not only is she an amazing chef, she is an amazing person! I am currently battling stage III breast cancer and foundation4love sent her to us for a special date night. Katie presented such amazing courses for us, we loved each and every item that she made. All were delicious & healthy. We not only highly recommend Katie but we hope to have her back one day to host a dinner party. 5 stars!
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
Christine and Dennis have been cooking for us for three years every other week. Terrific choices, healthy and tasty. We love them like family.
