Dana made my wife's 40th birthday party a complete success! Everyone at our party raved about the food and Dana. I found Dana on Thumbtack and needed a lot of help figuring out what food to serve, how to set up for the party, confirming numbers & amount of food needed, etc. Dana came out to my home to discuss the vision I had for the party and followed up quickly with a complete proposal. No detail was missed. I cannot overstate how great he is to work with and highly recommend him for any catering our personal chef event.

I have had the pleasure of utilizing Chef Liljequist to cater events for me twice and attended another function that his team handled. I was very pleased each time with the level of professional attention I received which was met with outstanding food. Truly a great meal! Consistent and perfect portions too.

This week Chef Liljequist catered our family meal - spaghetti with homemade meatballs and a delicious hearty red sauce. He was so easy to work with and met me at my budget. So friendly and easy to work with. I plan to hire him for a future event when we will require a personal chef.

We had a surprise 90th birthday party for my mother that Blessed Occasion catered. My only contact with them was through Thumbtack. I've used countless caterers in the past and have to say they are definitely in my top 2. Ms. Keita and her staff exemplified professionalism throughout the entire process. She was very sensitive our needs versus what was best for her. The menu planning was awesome, a variety of options and suggestions were offered when requested and their promptness was stellar. Let's get to the real deal..the food was AWESOME!!! The pasta con broccoli (oooh the seasoning) puffed pastries (a variety of crab cakes, quiche & chicken) and the birthday cake( a sassy 1 &1/2 tier creation) were my favorites because there was nothing cookie-cutter about them. I don't have enough characters left to describe the entire menu because I also have to share details of the decorations. Yes, they also decorated the environment. My mother is an avid Bridge Player so we used that as our theme. Blessed Occasion turned the activity room into a bridge parlor with themed table clothes, centerpieces, streamers and the cake. If you haven't concluded by now that Blessed Occasion will take the headache out of planning for any event, just read through this review again because they are definitely my "go to" for all future events.

WOW!!! Talk about a wonderful surprise! I work at a large local car dealership. We provide lunch on Saturdays for a very hungry staff. Presentation for a large group on a budget is always a struggle. Blessed Occasion showed up in a neat, clean professional looking embroidered apron and chef's hat. Food was beautiful, hot, and delicious! Nothing canned or instant here. She even made an individual meal for our Vegan associate. He said it was INCREDIBLE! Some people cook because they have to, she cooks because she loves to and you can taste it in every bite. If you are looking for a professional who exceeds expectations, this is your caterer...but check her availability, because we, here at Suntrup, will be using Blessed Occasion on a regular basis.

It was wonderful working with Blessed Occasion Catering & Event Planning. Chef Keita responded to all of my communication in a timely manner. Her and her crew treated everyone at my event with a lot of respect and kindness. The food was excellent. Thank you!!!! I am attaching pictures of some of my finger food layout.

Well at first when I was going to start I was intimidated and nervous cause this was my first trainer. Based on ruzens credentials I could tell she was highly qualified and physically fit. But after the first week I was so impressed and sore. The work outs were so intense but i pulled through some how. I think it's because she was so motivating, but not in an annoying way. She knew I could do it and kept pushing me to be my very best. There was always a new work out in a new and invigorating way. She truly inspired my healthy lifestyle to this day. Had she not relocated, I would still be with her. Highly knowledgeable and we'll trained are my memorable thoughts and completely encouraging.

Well I've had the first experience of working up close and personal and I'm lucky. The food served is nothing but top notch! It's fresh, it's healthy BUT delicious, and completely deceiving because it doesn't seem healthy. There's always variety and even themes which makes it more fun in my opinion. Did I mention you even get your own custom lunch cooler bag. There's alot of passion and hard work put into this and it shows.

Natina was prompt, well planned as well as full of ideas that we had not even thought of during our initial consultation. When it came to our ideas, Natina was very patient and she listened to all of our requests and executed them all to our liking. The food was amazing! It was far beyond our expectations. Noirblanc is my #1 choice for any future events. Thanks Again!

About

As a personal chef, I’m available in the evenings to help bring together your family meals and special occasions. My services include menu planning, purchasing the necessary ingredients, meal preparation, and cleanup. I also do meal preparation for meals during the week that are easily re-heatable. I can recreate some of your family favorites or plan a menu for you while getting your input and approval along the way. I’m able to make any accommodations for food allergies or dietary restrictions that are present with any guests or family members. Each session can be custom tailored to meet your needs for any occasion. As a private cooking instructor, I come to your home or apartment and give you hands-on instruction in menu planning, meal preparation, and proper cooking techniques. I have a variety of different menu items to choose from for each of the three different meal times: breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and a special menu for the holiday season(s). I also give my clients the option of picking some of their own recipes that they need help perfecting or tweaking. I mainly do one-on-one classes, but I'm available to do group classes by request. I purchase the ingredients prior to class, arrive early to get everything set up, and stay until things are cleaned up. Do you have a dinner party or special gathering coming up? Sit back, relax, and let me wow your guests with a specially prepared menu. As a private caterer, I sit down with my clients and establish a food budget and get their full approval on all aspects of the menu. I prepare, deliver, setup and display the food items before the start of the event. Are you looking for a more intimate setting? I also offer passed hors d'oeuvres and/or plated food items. I prepare all food items, serve, and then clean up at the end of the event. You can book me in advance today for your upcoming event.
