Chef Kev provided wonderful food and outstanding customer service. He was very pleasant to work with. He and his assistant, Anita, made it possible for us to relax and be good hosts while our guests were taken care of. I appreciated the worry-free night knowing that everything was handled. Anita even chatted with guests who didn't know many people to make sure they were having a good time. My favorite items were the pasta salad, pulled pork sandwiches, and the dessert tray items because they tasted great and they were easy to eat on small plates while standing up. The sparkling punch with strawberries was so good -- I think I drank a whole pitcher. Bonus: my fridge is full of awesome leftovers. I won't have to cook for a week.

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.

I attended two cooking classes ( light Mexican and healthy grains) taught by Chris & Emily at the William Tally Rec Center. I highly recommend these classes. They were very informational and Chris &Emily are full of cooking knowledge which they share. We made several recipes and sampled our finished dishes. After the Mexican class, I promptly purchased a tortilla press. It is so easy to make your own corn tortillas. I would have never tried it on my own. Lori

I Was looking for something different for my wife and her sister during a visit. I saw A Private Affair on Living Social, offering a cooking class for 5. Since my wife loves to cook and her sister spent some time in culinary school I thought 'lets just give it a go." We ended up with 3 1/2 people making what turned out to be a fantastic meal - each of them taking responsibility for preparing a course under Chef Jackie's guidance and watchful eye. My grand niece made the salad (and Chef Jackie was great in keeping her on task and engaged); My wife did the potatoes au gratin; another friend did the pork chops and my sister-in-law made the chocolate moose. It was a lot of fun watching them but not as much as they seemed to be having. The menu options were great, the food was different and unique and everybody learned something new. Most importantly my stock went up for being the guy who gave his girl a cool and different gift. Pay attention gents! This one was worth it!

I flew into town to plan my father's memorial. Mom wanted food delivered, set up, and kept tidy. We ordered from Wegman's and hired Chef Celestine. From the first contact with Sweet Bazil, staff were thorough professionals, confirming details and keeping phone appointments. Chef Celestine talked me through everything I should consider and I opted for her coffee tea station and sterno warmers, along with three extra hours of her day. At first I wondered what she would be doing the whole time, but was so glad I had Chef's helping hands. She washed and replenished, and repacked food, so that at the end, there was literally nothing for me to do! If I lived here, I would definitely find an event for her to actually cook for. But for our family gathering of 40, this Helping Hand service really lightened my load.

The cooking lesson was for my teen daughter. Mary was very accommodating. She was well prepared and very professional. She taught my daughter with patience and she made it fun for her. She taught her terminology and safety, as well as helped her to create a wonderful meal. My daughter will continue taking culinary classes with Mary and I would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends.

I would give Nasrin six stars if I could. She agreed to prepare dinner for two on the occasion of my wife's birthday. Over the course of 10-days of planning she consistently demonstrated creativity, flexibility, and reliability. On the night of the surprise dinner, she produced a delicious feast of regional dishes, in generous quantities. My wife was surprised and delighted, so I couldn't have been happier. Highly recommended!

As an educator, Chef Julian is outstanding, particularly with regards to excellence, creativity, discipline and adherence to historical and traditional cooking. Chef relates to young people exceptionally well and conveys, and expects an extremely high standard for dignity, respect and excellence both in and out of the kitchen, As a chef, Julian creates truly exceptional culinary creations that are well founded in traditional American cooking but at the same time are modern, creative and innovative.

Kelsey gave my daughter an in-home cooking lesson. She selected a wonderful menu and was very professional while still being flexible and fun with my daughter. The meal was also superb! My daughter had a wonderful time and is now inspired to be a young chef. Our experience was fantastic and I highly recommend Kelsey.

Meetal arrived exactly at our appointed time, was warm and bubbly, but also down to business! She wanted us to learn a few specific dishes and techniques, smells and sights, and she pushed us to do so, while engaging in lively and fun chatter. She taught us three different dishes, AND cleaned up in 1 hour and 15 minutes!! Simply amazing. I would recommend Meetal to anyone trying to cater a dinner, hosting a cooking class, etc. She is fabulous!!

I hired Chef Negri to cook for a surprise birthday party I was throwing for my husband. It had been a long while since we had celebrated his birthday so I wanted it to be extra special. The only problem was that all the things I'm good at cooking, he was probably sick of!  Neil discussed with me the options and suggested Thai food. To be honest Thai wasn't ever my favorite but I knew that it would be different for my husband as well so I decided to go with it. We spoke in detail about his carefully selected ingredients that were all fresh, local and conscientious.  I never knew so much legwork was involved in shopping for ingredients. When he started cooking, it was all about detail and organization. He was meticulous, skilled and precise. The dinner was well presented and unbelievably delicious. It was completely different from all of the terrible Thai restaurants I ate from in the past. My husband was thrilled and really enjoyed the dinner and he took the leftovers to work the next day.  It was an amazing experience to have a professional chef who not only prepares delectable meals but cleans up after himself as if it never even happened.  I very seldom write reviews or testimonials but this had to be shared.   We're doing this again, thanks Neil.
