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.

For the love of food and drink, I cannot recommend Chef Bill enough. Go ahead, book them with confidence! Professional caterer with personable service, we were pleased. The food exceeded our expectation, and excellent in taste made from locally sourced and healthy ingredients. We were pleasantly surprised with the copious portion as well. Chef Bill and wife Wendy were communicative and easy to do business with. They provided disposable flatwares and stayed around after setup the buffet to serve at no additional cost. Honey & lavender chicken was juicy and cooked just right which is a feat in its own right, the mac & cheese was praised by many as well. The only thing that did not go as well was the timing. Chef Bill and crew arrived 20' late on site. Our event was delayed at the result. However, Wendy and Bill were very apologetic and offered a discount for being late. The discourse was resolved quickly, we will consider "For the Love of Food & Drink" again for future events.

For The Love of Food & Drink was everything we hoped for and more! The food was delicious and the staff was amazing! We had a bourbon tasting where we wanted the bartender to be engaged with our guests she did just that. The Chef was just as engaged with our guests which we loved. We will definitely be using them again!

My husband and I decided to host a housewarming/fall party and we knew we wanted to serve hors d'oeuvres and cocktails. When we spoke with Jen, we knew she was just the kind of chef we were looking for with her awesome suggestions of appetizers and such a large range of options. We wanted appetizers that were fun, easy for people to pick up, and of course delicious! Jen went above and beyond spending time perfecting our menu and touching base with us before beginning her food prep. She worked her tail off all evening at our home to make sure anything that left her kitchen was freshly made and just right. We would recommend Jen to anyone looking for a talented, innovative chef who takes pride in her food and her work. We can't wait to have her cook for us at our next event!!

I had ordered some food for about 14 guests. I ordered just a few dishes which were steak tips, very enjoyable, meat cooked perfectly, went very quickly, ribs were very nice, the honey glazed chicken wings were not so popular thought they lacked a bit of sweetness, however not terrible, the slider bar was popular, pulled pork and burgers nicely done and the herbed chicken was delicious. Ordered cookies with infused milk and smores bars both very good. I picked the food up before 12pm and communication with John was easy and always available whether through phone or email. I had made some of my Nigerian rice (Jollof Rice) to go on the side which is why I did not order any sides from John. The food was very well all my guests were raving on about it and where I got it from. Fantastic job.

John was excellent to work with! Even though we had unusual restrictions from our wedding venue, John designed and delivered a perfect menu! His food is delicious and his advice is honest and invaluable. We also had a few vegan guests at our wedding, and John took the challenge in stride. We had rave reviews about the food. He made sure we (bride and groom) got a chance to eat. We can't thank him enough!

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!!!!

My family and I had Julie over for a private cooking class this past week. She taught 8 of us how to make some delicious Italian food including homemade pasta, sauce and dessert. Everyone in my family is raving about the experience, it was like nothing they'd ever done before and it was such a hit! Julie is wonderful, wildly talented and so down to earth, it was our pleasure to learn from her and are looking forward to our next class!

William has been providing personal chef services for my family for a few months now. I can't say enough positive things about him as well as his food! It is like bringing a five star chef into your home. William's food is superb - expertly made, beautifully prepared and plated (if you want) and delicious. William is a pleasure to have in our home as well and works with you to develop the menu and is open to suggestions and feedback. I would highly recommend him for catering and personal chef services.

Lori Rizzo was a pleasure to work with from the first second of our conversation through many twists & turns in the catering job (including 3 changes of venue) up until the excellent food and service she provided at the event. This was for a large anniversary party of 300+. Lori helped us design a delicious and cost-effective menu, working with our budget but putting the satisfaction of the guests as a top priority as well. She provided excellent and plentiful appetizers and desserts for our guests. Through the various venue changes, we had to keep altering the menu, but she was always patient and solved every problem. She was very responsive via email and phone, and I was never for one moment worried that she wouldn't come through with excellent catering services. She had solutions to all of our various challenges in an unconventional space with last-minute changes. I would strongly recommend her to anyone and everyone.

After initially using thumbtack.com to assist with our search, we hired Heidi Mazzeo of Wilder Cuisine to be our personal chef for a recent family dinner party. Heidi was very helpful with planning the food selection, timing, etc. The results were excellent! Heidi prepared and served several appetizers that tasted great. Salad, entrees and dessert were served right on time; and were all delicious. Our family was able to totally relax and enjoy our time together, knowing Heidi was handling everything. We all had a great time thanks to Heidi. Ray; Norfolk, MA

I've worked with Benjamin for the last six years using him as a caterer at various events ranging from 200+ person concerts (5-6 per summer) to intimate household dinners. Every time he has been extremely professional in his correspondence and delivery. His food has continually wowed guests and customers alike, and it is obvious he has a talent for tailoring the menu to the occasion. Additionally, he has a knack for pairing wines and cocktails and doing so in an extremely affordable price range. He and his team are truly gems in the culinary/catering world. I can not recommend his services high enough.

Extremely Competent and Talented - Delicious food - Impeccable professionalism - Very Reasonable Pricing Expertise in the field is immediately evident. Upon our first call, I knew Deirdre was highly capable of handling our event. Her years of experience have made her confident in her execution - which made me as a client secure and calm that Slavin in the Kitchen would handle our event as anticipated and without incident. This particular event that we hired Deirdre for was a very personal one - a “Celebration of Life” gathering at our home after my Mother-in-law’s passing. I desired a very specific passed hors d’oeuvres menu to honor my Mother-in-law to include her favorite foods. Deirdre didn’t blink. She was completely amicable with creating offerings that are not typically on her appetizer menu. She made excellent suggestions and designed special hors d’oeuvres just for our memorial. We certainly didn’t provide her with the best working conditions - and she didn’t even shrug! I requested that she work out of our garage so that guests could have full use of our kitchen. She did so flawlessly and to boot - when she left, you would have never even known she was there! I would have been happy to rent cooking equipment for her to use, but as an added bonus - she had it all in her inventory and brought it with her. Our guests were swooning over her cuisine! I received MANY compliments on how delicious folks found her cooking to be. Guests even took her name and number so that they may hire Slavin in the Kitchen for future events. I am still dreaming about the Curried Chicken Tartlets and the Masala Chai!! SO TASTY!! I need to note how lovely and professional her Serving staff were as well! As an Event Planner, I’ve experienced that even if the Chef is professional and capable - the crew they bring to serve isn’t always as fabulous. That was certainly not true of Slavin in the Kitchen’s Servers. The two ladies were courteous, crisp, polite and gracious. They knew the tone of the event and were overwhelmingly sensitive to our family and guests. I was delighted with how our event was handled by Slavin in the Kitchen. I will hire Deirdre again and I implore you to too! Taylor Singh Owner, Avasara Events

Oh my goodness, Deirdre was incredible!!!! I hired Slavin in the Kitchen for my sister's 50th birthday party. After interviewing a few caterers I knew Deirdre Slavin was the caterer for us. She was professional and explained everything up front, so there were absolutely no surprises. Now onto the food! Since we just did hors d'oeuvres she served an array of dishes. From the duck confit tarts to the Spanish meatballs, mini crabcakes with lemon aoili, we were thrilled. I could go on and on, the food was that good, it was truly amazing!!! My family considers themselves to be serious "foodies" and man did she deliver. She runs an extremely tight ship and right to the last minute Deirdre and her staff were efficient and extremely pleasant to work with. I highly recommend her for your next big event!!!

Deirde and her team were great! Her cooking demo really impressed everyone who attended and she was able to answer the questions well. Her story of why she got into cooking and her different experiences as a cook defiantly added some flavor to the cooking demo. I hope to work with her again in the future.

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.
