Leslie is a fabulous chef. She creates gorgeous, delicious, nourishing food. She loves to feed people; loves to make them full and happy. Leslie is always smiling. Thanks, Leslie!
We hired Tanya to cook for a 30 birthday party for 12 people. She was so responsive and flexible in planning. We had a family style meal with multiple options for main courses and sides, and a delicious homemade cheesecake for dessert. It was so reasonably priced and so delicious. Friends were talking the next day about how they wanted to hire her to cook for them all the time. Tanya was so professional and left the kitchen even more spotless than it was when she arrived. We really appreciated her service and I would work with her again in a heartbeat!
James catered both of my daughters's weddings. The feedback from my guests, after each event, was that they had never experienced such exceptional food or creative menu at any wedding or corporate function...when people call me just to comment on the meal... that says it all! Kudos to Chef Tranchemontagne and his crew!!
We had the pleasure of a private cooking class/ dinner with Chris while vacationing in Woolwich, Maine. It was absolutely the most fun evening for us and our 6 guests! We had a Chinese Menu. Chris is absolutely a pleasure to be with. He is interesting, fun and a great chef and teacher. Our friends were so impressed we could find such a gem and plan such a great evening. Only bad thing, is we have to wait until next year when we return to Maine from our home in NC! Unless maybe we can convince Chris that Charlotte, NC is a great place to visit
We hired Theresa to cater our wedding reception and couldn't have been happier. We were so lucky to have found her! Our first 2 caterers both just disappeared after making the commitment and Theresa saved the day with just 3 weeks before our wedding. Since we were having an Irish/Scottish wedding we requested a buffet with a variety of savory pies and not only did she accept the challenge but her food was amazing!! Everyone raved about it, especially the Steak & Ale Pie. She made absolutely beautiful "display" pies for each type of pie served, which was a really nice touch. Theresa had to deal with no stove/oven at the venue and a warming rack that didn't work and somehow still pulled it all off! Throughout it all she was calm and supportive and made me feel like I had nothing to worry to about, and she was right! I highly recommend her and will definitely use her again the next time we need a caterer. She is fantastic (and also an award winning pastry chef!). Our only regret was that we had already committed to having another vendor do our cupcakes otherwise we would have had Theresa do our dessert as well. She is an excellent caterer and a really warm, genuine person. We highly recommend her!
We knew immediately after meeting Marc that this was going to be an awesome event. And sure enough, the food was spectacular! Our guests talked about him for months! He stayed within budget, was attentive to some food restrictions and his creativity was surprising. Marc is a true professional chef. I would not hesitate to pass along his name and look forward to calling him for my next affair. Oh, and his personality is infectious. The guests loved that he came out of the kitchen to mix and mingle with everyone while showing is concern that all were pleased.
I found Marco Gomez on Thumbtack while I was looking for and considering having a "personal chef" to prepare a few meals for my family during the week. I didn't want to have a chef in the house, but wanted food that was easy for me to heat up when the kids and I got home from work. I also wanted someone who could assist in portion-size control and prepare food in a healthful but tasty way. Also, I wanted to experience veggies cooked in a more interesting method than I seem to know. I told my sister my plan, and she joined me and my son when Marco came to our home to do a "taste test" and we had the opportunity to taste several main meal dishes, plus some snacks/desserts. Even my son, who is NOT a vegetable eater enjoyed the food. So now Marco comes to our home once a week, with already prepared entrees for three meals a week for my family and my sister. It is great that the kids or I can come home and heat something up quick and enjoy a delicious meal, but without having to spend the entire evening cooking and cleaning up the kitchen. More time for other activities or interests. Also, the portions are large enough that I'm usually able to take half for lunch the next day, saving me the cost of buying lunch during the week. I highly recommend Marco Gomez for your family's personal needs, or catering for a larger event. Marco is very courteous, enthusiastic and loves making his clients happy!"
I hired Steph to cook a private dinner for a few friends and family. The food was outstanding and the service matched! She definitely went above and beyond my expectations. I will absolutely be hiring her again!
