Tamara was super friendly and easy to work with. She catered the menu to our requests and food was very good! My only concern was she arrived about 40 minutes later than scheduled however, our food was ready close to promised time. We had an Italian theme and food was flavorful, fresh and tasty! She was very friendly and easy to work with!Dec 6, 2017Verified

Chef Tamara had the best intentions in catering our event but unfortunately her presentation, food quality, communication, punctuality and professionalism were not part of our experience. We read many good reviews so we believe that she has probably done a nice job for others. But for us, it was a major disappointment on all levels. We have nothing against her and hope others have a better experience.Nov 4, 2017Great Lakes Chef Catering Services's reply
We appreciate your feedback and are willing to do anything to improve our business and hope in the future we can show you that we are indeed top chef quality.
The meal was very good! The only criticism I have is her communication prior to the event was not the greatest.Dec 11, 2017

Chef Tamara was a pleasure to work with. The variety was plentiful; we were able to put together a spread that met all our guests needs. The food was DELICIOUS! She arrived on time was professional, friendly and courtesy. We will most definitely use Chef Tamara again.Jul 10, 2017Verified
This is the first time I have used a service like this. Tammy was very helpful, with recommendations for the menu. I would use her again.Oct 3, 2017Great Lakes Chef Catering Services's reply
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My goal is to find a budget that works with my clientele to make them happy. My prices differ based on family style, buffet and plated. That being said I will work with any budget to ensure the happiness of my clientele. Thank you.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Speaking one on one with the client to find out their wants and goals. Developing menus based on cuisines my clients are interested in learning more about. Every menu is custom made for each client, based on their goals, budgets and nutritional goals. My number one priority is customer satisfaction. I pride myself on serving the best cuisine possible and making my clientele relaxed and taking over all responsibilities for them so they can enjoy their event.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I was nominated chef of the year through the American Culinary Federation. Won Iron Chef Three years running. Trained under many French, Italian, Mediterranean Chef's who were my mentors. Went to OCC for Culinary and OU for Business. I have taught many demos and cooking classes, specialize in wine dinners, and large parties.
