We LOVED working with Bill and Wendy for our October barn wedding that was attended by 135 family members and friends! Bill is an incredible chef and is so inventive and really knows how to include a variety of flavors in a meal. He made seventeen (yes, seventeen!) tapas for our wedding dinner from various regions around the world. Our guests gave us the most rave reviews about the food and people were really pleased with trying new things they would likely have never tried otherwise. Wendy is an absolute joy to work with. She is very knowledge and thinks of all the little things. Her energy and bright smile are contagious. She also has an amazing expertise in pairing wine and beer with the incredible dishes that come out of Bill’s kitchen. In addition to our wedding, we have been lucky enough to have attended various farm to table events catered by Bill and Wendy and some of their cooking classes. We always have a blast and you can really feel the love they have for food and for the people they are working with. We consider them not only top-notch professionals but also friends. We highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for any type of event to be catered.

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.

My experience with Sara's Cooking was most positive. Our son and fiance sadly needed to postpone their wedding plans a few weeks before the actual wedding date. Because so many people had made plans, purchased airline tickets...etc. We decided to turn our lemons into lemonade by hosting a friends and family event on the date the wedding would have been. We had committed to having Sara's Cooking for the wedding and now we needed to switch gears in changing our venue. Sara graciously and easily accommodated our switch and do so with utmost kindness. The food was most incredible with an international flare, home cooked goodness and beautiful presentation. I purposely had chosen Sara's Cooking because her menu selections grabbed my attention right away. My husband and I were not disappointed and neither were our guests. The chefs are topnotch, pay careful attention to detail, friendly, fun and were most accommodating to all our needs as we hosted our gathering. I will always recommend them and use them again for future events.

Chef Cristo was fantastic and easy to work with. He met not only my initial requests but was flexible to add items as I had new ideas. He traveled to my house in a snowstorm to deliver and ensure that my party went off without a hitch! I would use him again in a minute!

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.

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.

I used Chef Marty Malone for a holiday party that my Vice President held at his house this past December for his team. The cook and server that he sent were very professional, friendly, efficient and tidy. The passed appetizers were excellent and everyone loved the homemade tortilla chips. I would highly recommend them!

Paula has been cooking for my husband and me for about 6 months. She is an excellent chef who is able to design interesting menus with diverse flavors. She works well under the many dietary constraints that my family has and is able to cook in a healthy style, which is important to us. Her food is delicious and she is a pleasure to work with.

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.

Sam and his staff catered our nonprofit organization's annual Sandra K Russell Derby Day Benefit for MitoAction a few weeks ago and it was beyond amazing! Our attendees and staff cannot say enough great things about the Merrimack Event team. From start to finish, Sam was polite, attentive, and efficient. He worked with our budget and understood the complexity of the event. Sam went above and beyond to help decorate the event venue beautifully and of course, have his chef design an out of this world Southern Fare dinner menu to match our event's theme. Everyone was so pleased with the delicious food, and has told us out of the 8 years we have hosted this event - this one was truly the best. We cannot wait to use Simply Elegant Catering again next year! Thank you again Sam and team!

Beth has been very easy to work with, and we love her food. She is extremely flexible, and is willing to either cook at her own home and deliver, or cook in your home. She will either provide you with a menu, or let you send her recipes! And the food is delicious and healthy. We're glad we found her and decided to give a personal chef a try! It's really helped the weeknight dinner rush and made evenings more enjoyable with the family since we can focus on being together after a long day, rather than worrying about what's for dinner!

    SommerChef was amazing. The recipes were easy enough to do, but were amazingly delicious. I liked how the printed recipes we used during the class were in large enough print that they were easy to read. And the printed copies we were given at the end of the night are well organized. I plan to make five of the recipes tonight – a weeknight, no less – for guests. Great value. Great food.

    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!

    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.

    Francesca was personable, professional and cooked an amazing dinner for my wife and I. She helped bounce ideas around for a menu and even took suggestions on where to purchase the food to be prepared all while staying cost conscious of our budget. I would definitely have Francesca back to prepare another incredible meal and recommend her for a nice evening in like my wife and I did, or for larger events as well.
