Chef Matt is incredible. We and our friends have used him 3 times and he is nothing short of a professional chef. The food is always delicious and he uses the freshest ingredients.
Chef Chris Spear is in one word, amazing. If I didn't limit myself to one word, I'd also add in: incredible, talented, entertaining, knowledgeable, friendly, intelligent, thoughtful, creative, and brilliant. My wife and I just had our third son a month prior, and it was her birthday and we were not able to go out and celebrate due to the wonderful chaos of having a new little one tethered to mom. Chris was able to bring more than just the restaurant experience to us with this incredible service he provides. We learned new cooking techniques, flavor combinations, recipes that are easy for weekly meal making with little-to-no time, and more. As advertised, Chris brought everything: the ingredients, the dishes, the serving ware, the napkins and place settings; EVERYTHING. And then he took it all home with him. Chris spent almost a solid 5 hours with us and never made us feel rushed or hurried throughout the whole experience. He explained all his dishes, discussed the ingredients with us, gave us his perspective and thoughts on the dish, all while giving us stories about his own personal life and family and how he got to where he is today. He clearly loves what he does and it shows through on the food. My wife and I cannot wait to remake the dishes, and have already started looking at new cookware that Chris recommended. Chris even gave us links and recommendations for recipes that were not part of the meal experience we had signed up for. Chris clearly cares about the food and experience first, which is beyond refreshing and hopefully what helps set him above other chefs. We have told both of our entire families and friends about this experience and could not recommend Chris more. I hope people believe us and take the opportunity to have a similarly amazing experience with Chris. Ours was truly a great experience, and for that, the least we can do is say THANK YOU to Chef Chris!
Very creative with the menu selections, presentation was fabulous and the chef was very professional.
Veronique was an amazing chef and were couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. She cooked an abundant and highly flavorful meal for our family of 16. Her food was beyond my expectations. She even made a separate meal (from start to finish) for my daughter who doesn't eat meat. Her ingredients were well chosen and fresh. Her personality was pleasant and fun. She even allowed our kids to help her prepare the meal as a fun way to participate in the evening. She stayed much longer than I thought she might to make sure our meal was thorough and complete. And to top it off, she dealt with a challenging kitchen that might have left less skilled chefs floundering a bit. I couldn't have been more pleased with our experience and I would highly recommend Chef Veronique to anyone looking for a yummy, fun meal.
BEFORE EVENT I had a FANTASTIC experience working with Chef Kev, and I'll try my best to do justice to his services through this review (I don't think it's possible!). I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND him to anyone searching for an easy-going caterer who is attentive, accommodating, customer-service oriented and who takes control of the event to completely relieve them of any stress related to food/catering/kitchen. I accidentally came across Thumbtack while looking for certain supplies for my event. Once I realized that I could search for caterers, I thought I'd give it a try. Chef Kev was the first caterer to respond with a detailed menu based on my description of the event (3 or so others responded to ask me for more info without making ANY attempt to use what I had already provided in my initial description!!) . His proposal was well-thought out and it was clear that he had paid attention to my description and came up with a customized menu on such basis. It took me a day to respond to him because I was certain that it wasn't possible for the first proposal to be EXACTLY what I had in mind and even better than what I imagined. After having analysed the menu several times :-), and there was still nothing to change, I wrote Chef Kev. We had a call to discuss the proposal. Chef Kev was very accommodating as we worked through the proposal (I increased my initial count and added a couple of dishes) and discussed day-of logistics (e.g., I wanted the mac-n-cheese passed around in martini cups, wanted the food served in chafing dishes, etc.). MENU The food was fantastic!!! Everyone enjoyed it and they had seconds and thirds... A number of guests took to-go plates and I had some of the leftovers for breakfast :) Here's what was served: 1. BBQ salmon bites w/ malibu-rum ginger smashed sweet potatoes 2. Mesquite mini burger sliders 3. Oven roasted vegetables w/herb ranch aioli 4. BBQ sweet-n-spicy beef bites 5. Teriyaki turkey meatballs 6. Vegetable pasta w/ sautéed vegetables in a sundried tomato dressing 7. Scampi black tiger broiled shrimp & parmesan cheese grits 8. Caribbean jerk chicken party wings 9. Jumbo lump red pepper mac-n-cheese EVENT DAY I had initially wanted a caterer to drop-off the food, but decided to have one of Chef Kev's servers stay for the event, and that was the best decision EVER!! I had completely underestimated how much I would have had to do given that my event had many moving pieces. Chef Kev and his assistant Kim were FANTASTIC the day of the event and I couldn't have asked for a better team. When Chef Kev noticed that I had a lot of moving pieces and balls in the air (translation: slight event-day chaos), so he took control and decided to stay longer than we had discussed in order to make sure that things started off well and were running smoothly before leaving his assistant to run the rest of the event. I literally worried about nothing -- Chef Kev handled things efficiently and with a high degree of professionalism. In fact, at some point, Chef Kev sent his assistant with a plate for me...without that, I may not have ever gotten around to eating!! This is just one example of the types of light touches Chef Kev made throughout the planning and execution of the event which made my experience with him deserving of the five stars. His level of customer service was outstanding and my guests loved him, and several people asked me for his contact information.
Stephanie was awesome. She came fully prepared, fully stocked and ready to handle any level of experience with our team. Our teambuilding event was truly delicious and successful. I would highly recommend using Chef Steph for any event!
Chef Jacky is really a joy to cook with. She held a cooking lesson for my family and I, and we had an absolute blast and learned a lot! She was friendly, hilarious, and effective. I intend to definitely schedule more cooking lessons in the future.
Chef Nikki is WONDERFUL! The food is AMAZING!
I am so happy to write this review for the excellent service provided by Mary. Mary is not only a great professional chef; but she is also enthusiastic about her cooking and takes the time to understand her clients needs. I must add that she is a wonderful person to interact with. Food plays an integral part of my family's day; and I have no hesitations knowing Mary has prepared our meal! I know when I open the package containing the food prepared by her, I'll be in for a delicious treat!! I wish Mary all the best and will continue to work with her for nutritious and delicious meals.
Chef terry is the best ever, smooth, nice and the food is the best. I will hire him and his crew any day. Thanks for making my school reunion a blast.
Scott is fantastic and continually goes above and beyond. We planned our 25 person wedding weekend entirely from out of town, and couldn't have done it without Scott. From our first emails and Skype conversations, Scott made us feel heard and cared for -- something we definitely did not feel from the other four chefs we met with. He provided clear menu options and helped tailor the perfect selections, including accommodating our halal and vegetarian guests. Months later, our guests are still raving about the meal Scott prepared and entire experience he delivered. Beyond catering the evening, Scott and his team helped us evaluate the venue, find and acquire the linens & place settings, pick out & deliver flowers, and purchase food for the rest of the weekend. We highly recommend Scott as both a chef and as a trusted advisor with a big heart.
My company had their annual health fair and we hired Chef Iyea to do the cooking demonstrations. She was so helpful through out the menu planning process and very delightful to work with. Our staff loved her energy and recipes. I would highly recommend her!
It is my pleasure to offer this recommendation to Chef Ronald Cager Jr. I had the fortune to employ him for a romantic “Just Because” dinner for my husband and I. He and his business associate worked with me to understand my preferences. My expectations were achieved in taste and presentation. Chef Cager’s client centered approach was greatly appreciated. It is my sincerest hope to palate his future creations and cuisines. Until that time presents itself, I wish him much success.
The chef had very great communication in understanding what I was looking for. He made the hardest day the most smoothing running. Food was more then what I asked for he blew us away, creativity, taste & amazing plate set up...😱 WOW
Chef BobbyD and his team are the hidden catering treasure in Harford County Marlyland ! He's grown in leaps and bounds since I first met him years ago and I had the pleasure of having my wedding rehearsal dinner at my mom house which was great because she have a big dining room...and of course the food is superb! They put their heart and soul into their food, and it shows. If you are looking for a caterer any event, Bob is for you.
