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.
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.
We hired Colin for my sisters Bachelorette weekend in Newport to do a cooking class/meal for us at the house we were staying at. Colin was great all around! From the food to the experience everything was fabulous. We wanted to make the experience a bit more interactive then a normal personal chef meal but nothing too intense, he was able to read the group perfectly and did exactly what we wanted. We decided to go with a baked stuffed lobster for our main course, and he was extremely accommodating to anyone with dietary restrictions. We also prepared a butternut squash soup that was delicious, kale/quinoa salad with grilled vegetables and spaghetti squash on the side, finishing it off with crème Brule, everything was amazing for a reasonable price too! I would definitely recommend Colin and would love to use his services again!
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.
Renee Scharoff is a world class chef with a client base that reflects this from both here and abroad. Renee has been our personal chef for a number of years having pursued a relationship with her after an event we attended where she catered. Her culinary repertoire is sophisticated, inventive and always savory. Importantly, this is coupled w/ a keen perception of individual tastes and health considerations. She is extremely talentd, reliable and flexible adapting to need: personal chef, dinner parties, holiday event deliveries or formal events. I can think of nothig that would not have her meet the highest of standards. We live in Brookline, Mass.
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.
Mike cooked a beautiful and delicious meal for our bachelorette party. He was prompt, brought all his own equipment and ingredients, and cleaned everything immaculately. Mike was a fun addition to our celebration and was courteous yet charismatic. The meal was to die for, and Mike prepared a large menu while accommodating dietary restrictions. I feel confident that every guest at the party would hire Mike again. Of all the events that day, the chef was the best! Thanks, Mike!!
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.
Chef Stephen is a very talented Chef. We met 11 years ago and Chef Stephen gave me many cooking lessons in my home in addition we worked on special projects in public schools, catered dinners, culinary outings and a whole lot of fun and learning. My teenage son has taken cooking lessons and loves every taste and the fun and seriousness of Chef Stephens approach to teaching. I think Chef Stephen has an esthetic that pleases the eyes, the mouth, the tummy and many many people off all ages...we think he is a gift to the Culinary World!
Wonderful food, amazing chef, super nice person!
Nina is a very fine server. She arrived on time, was cordial to both my clients and to me. She anticipated things without me having to ask and she followed through. Both my clients and I are very pleased the way the dinner went. Thank you, Chef Colin Shea.
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
Ryan is a consummate professional whose devotion to his craft resulted in inventive, inspired and absolutely delicious food. We had the pleasure of hiring Ryan for an intimate event we were hosting to celebrate our marriage and throughout the entire process he remained reliable and engaged—consistently inquiring about food preferences and making suggestions based upon our responses. Logistically, he was responsive and reliable. Communicating with him was simple and he would always answer our inquiries with expediency and professionalism. Moreover, Ryan has the creativity to assemble a fantastic meal with as little or as much specificity as is given. We had guests who were vegans, vegetarians, and gluten/lactose free, as well as adventurous omnivores and I can say with honesty that at the end of the event, the component of the event that we heard most complimented was the food (from guests of all preferences). I would not hesitate to hire Ryan again and would urge anyone to seek him out for any event in which a fantastic culinary experience would be warranted.
Don is an exceptional chef whose creative preparations rise to the heights of having your own personal, Michelin chef for the evening......truly incredible.
My daughter loved all of her birthday cakes from Melany's Designs and Cakes! She always insisted on having one from Melany. The cakes were works of art!
Christine and Dennis have been cooking for us for three years every other week. Terrific choices, healthy and tasty. We love them like family.
