It was a pleasure dealing with Chris. he was responsive to any and all questions and was extremely helpful in a pinch when the weather caused a hiccup in our plans and had to change dates at the last minuet. His cooking was exceptional and I look forward to having him cook again for next year if he's available.

I wanted a fun night for myself and two of my closest friends. This was a gift for them, and I know they won't forget it. Sarah was so careful to make sure the event was customized to our liking. Everything was perfect. The wine pairings were excellent and food astounding. My group was running a little late, but that didn't stop Sarah from filling our time with valuable tips and tricks. If you want a personal experience in a comfortable setting, this is perfect! I've looked into and have seen other "cooking classes" and none of them offer the value Sarah does. I would absolutely recommend the Home Chef of NH!

John and Co did a fine job on our daughter's graduation party for about 60 people with 2 food stations and hors D'oeuvres. John and his employees were very easy to work with, the food was great and they left our house neat. You wouldn't know they had even been in the kitchen. Thanks John an Co

Marty and co catered our daughter's grad party, what a wonderful experience! Everything was fantastic. More compliments on the quality of the food and the great service than I could count. Marty's cooking was done by his two sons and, along with the staff, provided a great, seamless experience for all. This was my best experience ever with a caterer, absolutely great! HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!!!!

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!

Beth has been great to work with! Very flexible with menu, my choices, and days that work for cooking. Her meals/food is FAB! BEST part? I have so lost weight eating her food. Even the yummy pixie balls aren't added inches to my waste line ;) Definitely recommend to anyone to busy to cook meals daily and or is looking for better/health meals to serve the family or themselves.

    We hired Gathered Table to cook for 11 women at a bachelorette party this past weekend. The food was delicious and they were a pleasure to work with. Mary carefully worked to craft a menu that suited our tastes perfectly. She was flexible, accommodating and professional. I would hire her again in a heartbeat and definitely recommend them to handle any type of event.

    My two boys have taken cooking classes from Tanya the Homestyle Gourmet for years. They love her classes, camps and workshops. My 13 year old will often make cookies on his own in the evenings AND HE CLEANS UP AFTER HIMSELF! My 11 year old makes a variety of different guacamoles on his own and they both are interested in helping with meals and meal planning.

    I hired Jeanne because I needed a health and Wellness coach. She helped me pick out the food I needed to prepare healthy meals. She taught me a lot of things I didn’t know about nutrition and how to make a healthy meal plan without spending much money.

    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

    Our party of five hired Shilpi for a private Indian cooking class at her home in Andover MA. We had a wonderful time. Shilpi was warm, welcoming, and well prepared. After a quick lesson in Indian spices, we immediately got down to cooking five delicious dishes. It was a lot of fun and the hands-on teaching along with the detailed handouts will make it easy to recreate the delectable recipes at home. We highly recommend Shilpi and her cooking classes.

    About

    Having worked for a catering company, I know first-hand that companies often, sometimes necessarily, cut corners and in my opinion do not pay enough attention to detail or the customer's preferences. Working for myself gives me the freedom to indulge my perfectionist side, and spend as much time and attention on what I am preparing as it takes in order to create the dish both my customer and I want. I would not serve my customers anything I would not serve my friends and family, and I genuinely want those I work for to feel they are getting exactly what they envisioned.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
