We really enjoyed working with Chef Kevin. He developed a perfect (and very reasonable) menu for my mother’s 90th birthday party (a late afternoon reception). We had 50 people attending and he reassured me all along the way that the event would go well, and it did! Chef and his assistant arrived early, helped set up the room for better flow, arranged the food and punch tables, and added lovely special touches such as red roses and petals on the serving tables. Guests praised the food and my mother is still raving about the event. Many thanks to Chef Kev! We highly recommend him.

Well well well, I'm not sure where to begin. Chef Serge is FABULOUS! His food is phenomenal and he is very creative with his menu. I had such a hard time narrowing down my selection. His personality is upbeat, lively and FUN! And all while cooking amazing food! I emphatically recommend Chef Serge to anyone looking for a CHEF, a cook, a caterer, anything you can use him for, do it! He also brought an assistant who was equally as pleasant and amazing.

Chef Diane prepared a wonderful dinner for my family as we celebrated a milestone birthday. Her Hummingbird Cake and homemade ice cream were divine!

Chef Wertman recently prepared a milestone birthday dinner for 10 at our home. We greatly appreciated his flexibility in designing a menu with entree choices via phone & email. The process of watching him whip up great food in our kitchen was a joy! He prepared tasty appetizers, entrees and side dishes that pleased everyone.

Chef Jackie helped me host a birthday cooking lesson for 6 friends. Everything was perfect, including the healthy menu she helped up create. This was such a memorable occasion for me and my guest, that they are still talking about it! Can't wait for another reason to use her again! Waldorf, MD

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.

Iyea was great to work with! She arrived on time and the food was just as ordered. We had a variety of people with varying tastes and her food accommodated all! Only thing I would have done differently would be to add more sterno cans as they didn't last as long as the party and our food got cold. Certainly no one's fault but our own. That was the only thing I would have changed. All in all, a great experience!!

Though I would love to be selfish and keep Karizma to myself, her work as a Chef and teacher is too good to stay hidden. My 13 yr old granddaughter has a strong desire to be a chef. I wanted to help her with her goal. I found Karizma on Thumbtack. Karizma is not only a top notch instructor that shares her love of cooking she does it passionately. And all of that comes out in the dishes they prepared. The food tasted AWESOME! Very flavorful and better than any 5 star restaurant. I am so impressed with everything about this experience. All the food was from scratch and I loved the individual attention, the hands-on experience, her patience, and the passion she has for cooking. She also makes cooking fun and make you feel like your best friend sharing her secret tips to making the best dishes. All of this and I can't say it enough.....the food is REMARKABLE! Karizma knows her stuff, is an EXCEPTIONAL cook, and instructor and I would give her 10 stars! The whole experience is so great that I will be extending the sessions for my grand-daughter. I most highly recommend Karizma for chef, catering, and instructor services!

Chef Giovanni is not only a creative and dynamic chef, he is also a warm person. I was so relieved to welcome Chef Giovanni at my house for my dinner party, he put me at ease with his calm demeanor and ideas. We had been exchanging emails and texts the week prior to the event, he was responsive unlike other chefs I had worked with in the past. Chef had also been tasked to provide a meal for a pescatarian, gluten-free guest, and a “no shell fish” guest. When Chef arrived, he took several inexpensive bouquets from Trader Joes and transformed them into stunning centerpieces for my dining room table. The entire dining room morphed into a chic bistro that looked like it should have been in the south of France as opposed to Maryland. Once the first guest arrived, the smell of bouillabaisse was permeating the house and the guests were excited by the aroma but also the drinks and amuse-boushe Chef had prepared for their arrival. The amuse-boushe was phyllo dough stuffed with spiced lamb. It was crunchy on the outside with flavors of raisins, spices and lamb on the inside. This was an exceptional way to start our culinary journey! Once the guests were seated and wine was poured, the appetizer was served. It was not my favorite combination of flavors but others seem to enjoy it. Next the main course, the bouillabaisse was served. I was stunned to see how beautiful the bouillabaisse was prepared; with cilantro and lime on top and was chocked full of lobster, crab, scallops, fish. My guests were asking him for the recipe for the rue and the steps to making such an intriguing meal. The dessert was also nicely done, my guests really enjoyed the presentation and the taste. Chef Giovanni talked about what he made, helped serve the guests. He also helped pour the wine and kept the night flowing. Chef Giovanni also left me with a spotless kitchen which was the perfect end to a perfect night. I am a customer very happy with a first-time experiment with inviting a chef into my home. I think it is a great way to entertain without breaking the bank. When you consider how much time and preparation that goes into an evening like this, I feel that Chef Giovanni provides quality ingredients and exceptional service for a reasonable rate.

We used their personal Chef service to have a romantic cadle light dinner. In one word: Amazing. The meal was Michelin Star worthy as the time and attention that went into every detail allowed my wife and I to totally relax having to do absolutely nothing. What also impressed me was the clean up. When they left, the kitchen was spick and spam clean. The experience was so good that we are already thinking about hiring them again for an upcoming Holliday party. And lastly, as anyone reading a review wants to know, the price was extremely fair, as they gave us choices to match the amount we were willing to pay; so we both had an incredible meal worth every penny for the price we paid. We highly recomend you choose Hautz Eatz!

Awesome CHEF would put it mildly! You are the best at what you do! Your food is ALWAYS indescribably DELICIOUS!👍🏽 Friends are still talking about the great job you did in preparing the menu for the private party you did for me and my daughter. As the CEO of a company, I have had the pleasure of eating foods prepared by different chefs... CHEF JULIAN IS ONE OF THE BEST.

I am so glad that I got Afro-Veg to cater an event I was having. Mari, the chef promptly communicated with me about the the menu and pricing. I order some items off of the Indian cuisine section, and the Chana Masala and Samosas were so, so good. Mari also dropped the food off at my house and helped me take them to the table. Awesome food, awesome service, 100% recommend.

Hungry catered my son's graduation, and Chef Enrique made delicious South American rotisserie chicken with yuca fries and Caribbean coleslaw. They were even 30 minutes early!! Would recommend to anyone that wants to have high quality food from top-notch chefs.
