Dani provided our wedding luncheon with the MOST important elements: fantastic food and service. She is wonderful to work with and very detail oriented. She is a great chef and her crew were professional, kind and expedient! We will be using Catering by Dani again and again. I will recommend her services to everyone I know! Thanks for a great meal! Everyone enjoyed your food and service. We look forward to working with you again.
We had a fantastic dinner experience with Christine as our Chef! She provided an evening family meal for 8 adults and 3 children to celebrate retirement. Appetizers, dinner and dessert were provided. Not only was dinner delicious, but Christine was kind, competent, efficient, and she left our kitchen sparkling. We would most definitely hire her again for a future event.
Chef Jeff and his team will make your next party or event easy and memorable. Food was delicious and they are so easy to work with! Don't look any further, Chef Jeff is your new cook!
Lili did a fabulous job of catering a cocktail party at my home in Edina! Delicious appetizers, all beautifully presented. Lili was lovely to work with, very accommodating and creative. I will definitely use her again!
Great Experience! We had issues with our first caterer up until the week of the wedding. We fired the other caterer only days before the event, after contacting Luzette. We finally got the customer service and attention we deserved. They were excellent. Extremely responsive, professional, accomodating, executed perfectly, food was great. The chef and servers made our guests feel like royalty! They really came through for us and would recommend them!!
Julia was AMAZING. She was the first baker we had a tasting with and after meeting with her we never saw anyone else! Our cupcakes were delicious and tastefully color coordinated to our wedding. She was early, brought boxes for us to pack any leftovers in, brought a gift!!, and most importantly treated us as if she's known us for years. So many of our wedding party commented how personable and pleasant she was. Thank you for everything Julia!! Tucker & Jessica Langley
Susan is an outstanding chef! Her meals range from comfort to the exotic. She creates entire menus that leave one well-satisfied, a gastric delight that pleases all of the senses from palate to presentation.
Jill taught me that cooking from scratch was very easy and so much more rewarding than pre-packaged food. I was very interested in homemade sauces and dressings. She taught me the basics and showed me how to elaborate. I made Eggs Benedict with a hollandaise sauce that was out of this world. We also made from scratch an enchilada sauce. I highly recommend Jill. She is very passionate about her work and a very skilled chef.
We have hired Chef Marci on several occasions, for events ranging in style from formal dinners for 12 to family picnics for fifty. On every occasion, her food has been delicious, beautifully presented and creative. Her demeanor is friendly and professional, and she made the selection process simple. For the service she provides, her fees are completely reasonable. I would recommend her for any occasion that requires the services of a private chef.
Chef Bershok gave me and girlfriend amazing service through out the night. The menu me and Chef Bershok came up with was spectacular. The lamb chops were nice and tender the rissoto was great. The chocolate lava cake was superb. I highly recommend her to anyone looking at have a special date night. She made our night really special
Gail cook for our family this past winter. She made dinners, but also lunches and appetizers. Everything she did was wonderful, perfectly prepared with healthy ingredients. She also spent two days teaching my 11 year old granddaughter how to cook. My granddaughter loved every minute, made great things, and learned many principles of cooking. Gail is not only a good cook but a wonderful, honest and good person.
I have worked with Francisca on many different catering events. She offers great guidance and help in planning the perfect meal. She is very professional, always comes prepared and creates delicious food. Her food is a better quality then most restaurants offer. I look forward to working with her again in the near future.
Chef Nate is amazing!! From an intimate gathering at our home- cooking a fabulous meal from start to finish for our guests, to a retirement party of 100+ and a community event with endless hors d'oeuvres... All of our experiences have been wonderful! Chef Nate makes it so easy- whether you give him your ideas or use his expertise creating a menu. It's been perfect every time!

Looking for top quality food? Look here! I'm a licensed personal chef from the Culinary Business Academy in AZ. I am also a veteran of the US Army. I have skill sets in just about every ethnic background. I specialize on fresh local products when avail with low sodium and health consciousness mindset on every meal. I like to maximize flavor the natural way with key ingredients prepared to my meticulous standard. I need to interview you and whoever will be eating my food to determine your flavor profile as well as the things you like and want to see with frequency and things you dislike and never want to see. I tailor this information into a menu you get to approve prior to the day of cooking. I guarantee your sanctification and will replace any item you feel is not to your standard. In return, I need information about what didn't work with that particular dish, and why you didn't like it. I use this information on future meals so as not to make the same error for you again. This is such an easy venture for you or your loved ones. Think of getting a gift certificate that gives top-quality meals guaranteed they will like it. Santa approves when he eats my chocolate/white chocolate chip cookie as big as your hand. Here are a few thoughts to intrigue you pallet: * lemon and herb butter pan sauteed fresh halibut * garlic grilled chicken kabobs * any type of sushi made within a few hours of eating it on your plate soon * rib eye Oscar (fresh rib eye cooked to your preferred temperature topped with Alaskan king crab and garlic grilled asparagus drizzled with fresh home made Bearnaise sauce) * football game apps of all sorts, made fresh and delivered at the time of your specification Company parties of any size, I am fully capable of handling. I use a commercial kitchen in Mendota Heights close to the MSP airport to cook and prepare all of my food and has a spotless record with the FDA. I will never serve you or your loved ones something I wouldn't eat myself, and I am a food snob. What are you waiting for? Get in contact with me ASAP! Smiles.
