Honestly this was way more than a five-star event. The level of detail from the food the plating and catering to my family's diet this was absolutely amazing. Chef Mai recorded my wife's reaction so that it could be shared with me although I couldn't be there. This was better than any restaurant I could have taken my wife to and I absolutely recommend this for anyone who is interested in doing something special for the love one like I did. Thank you so much Chef Mai for all that you did and seeing the joy that you brought to my wife kids and mother-in-law. I absolutely cannot thank you enough you are outstanding at what you do!!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 3 - 5 guests • Dinner • Dessert • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • Southern • American - formal • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

Chef Mai was absolutely incredible! When I first reached out, she set up a consultation immediately, learned about the event and customized an amazing menu. She was extremely professional, friendly, and her food was INCREDIBLE! She handled everything from shopping, cooking, custom menus and table setting, topping off wine and cleaning everything up better than she found it. I have sung her praises to so many people and can't wait to hire her for another event very soon. Thank you for everything!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 6 - 10 guests • Dinner • Standard (basic ingredients) • Italian • American - formal • Mexican / Latin American • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

From the first phone call with the chef I immediately was excited about having her come and cook for my 30th birthday party. She was so nice and welcoming and really listened to the things I liked to eat. The menu she came up with was AMAZING. Everyone couldn’t stop raving about the empanadas and the salmon especially. Highly recommend her services and I look forward to using her again

I hired Chef Maisha to do a Valentine’s Day diner for my wife and I. She was terrific. She arrived on time, and was so friendly and prepared. She made a wonderful meal for my family that included 4 courses. She cleaned up after and even put my left overs away. She is an outstanding Chef who really loves cooking and making her clients happy. I highly recommend her Personal Chef Services.

I've been a fan of Food Is Love (FIL) for years. Maisha is a wonderful chef, baker and you can tell each dish is centered around love from the presentation to the taste. She is worth every dollar spent. I tend to devour my food so unfortunately I do not have pics of the pie she recently made me but it was delicious. Definitely contact her for all your catering needs. You'll be happy you did.
