I hired Chef Michael Jay for a surprise birthday dinner for my husband aboard our boat. I have had several catered events in my own personal home, but I have never hired a personal chef before, especially one to prepare dinner on my boat. I have to say that he honestly exceeded my expectations. On top of being extremely accommodating with working in a non traditional kitchen, he was professional, punctual, and was able to provide us with an amazing experience. The meal he prepared for us was outstanding. Everything was so fresh and flavorful...from the delicious appetizer, salad and entrée to the yummy dessert. He definitely impressed us with his culinary skills. My husband absolutely loved the experience, as did I. I would highly recommend hiring him, and will most definitely call upon him for future events.
We hired Cathy to prepare a meal for a business dinner at our home. She was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process of menu planning and coordinating through preparation and clean up. The food was fantastic and we received many compliments from our guests. We will be contacting her again!
I have used Metro Private Chef services for freshly prepared healthy foods. The meals were originally prepared once a week in my home based on my dietary needs prescribed by my physician. The convenience of the weekly meal preperation was fantastic but I have since changed to their delivery service. I receive the same delicious meals at my home once a week. I would reccomend their services highly.
We had Chef Tammy made a meal at our home and it was wonderful. She made chicken empanadas with mole sauce, salads and with chocolate lava cakes for desert. Best meal ever!
Chris and his wife Jennya were amazing to work with! Food is very important to both my husband and me, so when we were looking into catering for our outdoor wedding we wanted to be sure it was a quality meal that was also fun and casual for our guests to enjoy. Chris' catering menu is outstanding, and we were able to pick and choose items to give us an underlying theme of BBQ/southern foods, but his culinary twist on these items gave them a classy, gourmet edge to a traditionally casual menu. Our guests LOVED the food and we heard great things in the weeks/months to follow the big day. Every guest I spoke with enjoyed their meal to the fullest and remarked how happy and full they were :) So many weddings have unremarkable, bland, unexciting dishes of chicken, mostaccoli, etc., but Chris Hammack's catering business offers so much more than this! I would recommend them to anyone for various events - he even has a menu of meals for your family dinners throughout the week! I should also mention that he was great to work with, and so was each and every member of his staff. We worked most closely with him and his wife, and they made sure to meet any request we were hoping for. They are great people and I would recommend them to all!
Harv prepared a full breakfast for my BNI chapter meeting when our regular venue was "closed for the holidays". He did an outstanding job, had plenty of tasty food and all were satisfied!
It was great. Prompt service, amazing communication, very well rounded person, and the food was absolutely amazing. He offered suggestions for our meal and was timely from the time he stepped into the door until the time he left. I will be using him again for future medium to large events and private parties.
Patti cooked an absolutely wonderful meal for a small group in our home. She was very professional, the meal was superb and she had everything cleaned up and put away before she left. I can't wait to have her cook for us again, what a treat!
Chef Mary and her crew worked with me/us for our wedding reception meal. She and her staff are professional and very friendly! She kept our meal within our budget and still provided and excellent meal for all our guests. There was also a menu option for kids. I highly recommended her services!
Kalie did a great job with the special dinner we catered to the providers in our office! Serving them a nice lunch allowed them to step away from patient care for 1hour and enjoy the wonderful meal prepared for them! The meal was not only delicious but absolutely beautiful presentation! I will absolutely be using her for future events! Thank you so much!
DLG catered our backyard wedding for a 150 people. Kevin helped create a unique experience and menu for our occasion that was fresh, full of flavor and abundant. He suggested local and seasonal items and prepared them so that all the guest (vegetarians, gluten-free and meat-eaters alike) could enjoy them. Our guests raved over the food and fun of a food truck! His team was professional and accommodating and even helped bus the tables. The costs per person was less than comparable services and the food was made to order. Outstanding!
We had a beautiful, intimate, fun, amazingly delicious meal at home with two friends that were in town visiting from Dallas. It was a perfect experience!

I love preparing and serving all types of dishes, including desserts. I worked for day cares, fraternity and sorority and private company. I enjoy seeing others enjoy my creations. I'm also able to accommodate various dietary needs. I do menu planning, budgeting, catering events and party planning.
