I HIGHLY recommend Chef Serge. He was our personal chef for my wifes 40th birthday dinner and he made the celebration memorable. He was approachable and easy to work with since the moment we started coordinating and discussing dinner options, and he made the whole experience very enjoyable. He cooked a five-course menu for 11 people, and everyone was impressed with his well-prepared, top quality dishes (we are still talking about his delicious duck confit!). We paired the food with 1975 wines and the pairing was perfectly balanced. I am very glad that he cooked for us, and would definitely hire him again as personal chef in the future.
I HIGHLY recommend Steven of Crowe's Traveling Cuisine. It was my first experience with a personal chef and I can't wait to do it again! The food was EXCELLENT! We even had leftovers :) For dessert we had a chocolate cake with chocolate mousse and chocolate icing. It was so delicious, we hid it from our kids, ha! Just imagine being at a restaurant, but instead you are in the privacy of your own home. It was so relaxing.
Chris customized a perfect vegetarian menu for my girlfriend and I. We hoped to maximize our privacy for the evening, so Chris came with the food prepped as much as possible. We snacked on some amazing muhammara and butternut squash dips while he prepared the saffron cauliflower soup and main course (heart of palm cakes on curried lentils). Dessert (halva mousse) was left in the fridge for us, along with substantial leftovers (that's a huge perk I didn't anticipate - a personal chef means you get a bonus meal the next day.) We really enjoyed talking to him about the ingredients and preparation and would absolutely hire him again. I don't know how anyone wouldn't appreciate a gourmet restaurant experience in the comfort and privacy of their own home. Highly recommend.
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.
She sure does cook! Ashley was great. She was prompt, professional and personable. Our meal was delicious. If ever I need a personal chef again, I wouldn't hesitate to retain the services of She Cooks...
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 Niki catered my promotion dinner at my firehouse. I appreciated how I was able to view and sign the contract online and pay through a cash app. However, I was surprised to pay in full prior to delivery of service but I admit to being naive about the process of catering an event. Nikki was fair in price. The amount of food was very generous. The food was delish and the guys are still talking about how tasty it was. I only gave four and not five stars due to the late arrival of food. (40mins after agreed time.) Overall, I would recommend Chef Nikki to cater future events.
I had a great experience. The food was amazing. The chef was on time and accommodating. I will hire Chef Karizma again for sure!
Sandra is the best chef I have ever experienced. Everything about the event FAR exceeded my expectations. She added special touches such as a printed menu, ice cubes with edible flowers inside, had her staff take pictures. I will never consider another caterer ever again. Pure perfection!
Essie (Chef Vickie) has done several dinners for 9-10 people and one party for 50 people. Her service is thorough and reliable, and the food is delicious.
With the invaluable help of Chef Candace I surprised my wife with a Birthday dinner party. I had never hired a personal chef and must have contacted ~20 different ones to try to find the right one. I cannot overstate how glad I am that I went with Chef Candace. I also utilized her offer of hiring a server and using a table setting provided by her. It was fantastic. The food was incredible. The guests raved. Chef Candace showed up 2 hours before hand to cook and prep. I turned over my kitchen to her and she did the rest and created a magical meal. At the end of the meal she cleaned up and left my Kitchen just how she found it. If you are looking for an incredible experience where everything is taken care of and flawlessly executed look no further than Chef Candace. The wife and I are already planning to hire her again and again.
Suzanne is an outstanding chef and great to work with. She delivered our first week of vegan dinners and they were outstanding. Her food is delicious, creative and filling.
Anna is absolutely amazing! She was our personal chef for a number of years until we moved out of the area. In that time, she made unbelievable meals for us that accommodated both dietary restrictions and food preferences. We also hired her to host a huge multi-course birthday dinner for my mother-in-law that was easily one of the best dinners we've ever had, all in the comfort and intimacy of our home. If you're looking for an amazing chef for any size meal or event, Anna is the go-to Chef!
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.
Colleen from the Savory Chef has catered many events for me and has done some personal cooking in my home . The food was freshly made and professionally displayed. Myself and all my guests have raved about the food. I would highly recommend The Savory Chef for her personal in home or delivery services and any event anyone is planning.
Chef Dashawn Toppin did an amazing job on a friend’s birthday dinner. He was right on time and was able to accommodate all the dietary request. The food was amazing and my friend really enjoyed her birthday dinner. We were really impressed with his culinary skills. I will definitely hire him again for another event.
Ace culinary was on time and was very helpful to my guests. I would hire Ace again with no doubts.
My company hosts a fall festival each year and this year we decided to try a new caterer. The team with the District Catering Co was fabulous, poised and professional. The owner was a gem and she made sure to exceed our expectations. I’ll definitely be using them again
Culinary Chick provided dinner for my father’s 86th birthday. After his first bite he said and I quote “now this lady knows how to cook!”. We enjoyed every bit of our Italian dinner and fun was had by all! I will definitely use her for future occasions.
My personal chef experience with Dorien was absolutely amazing! The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and Dorien was a joy to be around. I can't wait to use his services again!
Phenominal Chef! Makes meals with love. She created a delectable fine dining experince for me and my family of 4. Presentation and flavors were awesome. Will be using her services again.
