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.

I booked this Master Chef knowing that I would not be disappointed for an intimate birthday dinner for 12 people. I asked for steaks and was very satisfied. He was very accommodating and worked with all my requests. Had a delicious salad, steak, asparagus, and dessert. I am glad I decided to hire this chef for my celebration. All my guests were impressed!

We hired Daniel for my mom's 60th birthday dinner at her home. He cooked an amazing 4 course meal. Things that were good about working with Daniel: easy to communicate with leading up to the event, flexible (we had a last minute location change), detail oriented and well prepared, the menu he prepared was diverse (made both meat eaters and vegetarians happy) and the food was delicious - we especially recommend his artichoke dip, smoked salmon and cauliflower au gratin! We would definitely recommend working with Chef Daniel!

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.

Orlando exceeded our expectations in every possible way. During our consultation session with Orlando, he displayed professionalism but you could also sense his passion for cooking and entertaining. Additionally, Orlando was extremely responsive and organized over the many weeks that we planned the menu and logistics for our dinner party. The execution of the Mediterranean menu was phenomenal - words cannot describe the authenticity and presentation of the dishes. I will most definitely hire The Global Chef in the future and would HIGHLY recommend others do as well. Bon appétit!

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!

    Sue is an excellent chef and cook. When she caters an event she is professional and friendly. The pizza's we order for our garlic harvest crew are always excellent and careful attention is paid to ingredients (which I am pretty picky about). Sue is also adaptable. I know when I first knew her she sometimes used ingredients I was not very interested in but she has gleaned so much experience cooking at co-ops and local and organic food restaurants, that she knows how to cook with everything our local foodshed has to offer.

    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.
