We are very pleased with our choice of Frank to do the job of putting together and installing our IKEA kitchen. Anyone who has put together IKEA furniture before knows it's quite a task! He is a family-owned business and works wonderfully with his son and wife. It was a pleasure getting to know them, all while watching our kitchen come together! Frank is thorough and precise about his decisions, always making sure we were happy. He saved us a good chunk of money, costing significantly less than the cost of the IKEA installers, while still doing a professional job. Best of all, we created a friendship with him and his family. They were so sweet to our 5 & 2 year old sons and were beyond trustworthy. Sometimes when you hire someone to do work in your home that requires a few days to accomplish, you can't wait to just have it done and have 'strangers' out of your house. I can honestly say that it was hard to say goodbye to him and his family when the job was done. Thank you Frank! We would do it all over again if we had to. We will add photos of the finished kitchen when our backsplash is done later this week!
We engaged Chef Tyler and his team for our Daughter’s wedding dinner at our home on Lake Norman. We have a normal sized kitchen and I was concerned that a Personal Chef would be able to create an elegant meal for 50 guests but I was assured by conversations with other Chef Tyler clients that he could do magic in any kitchen. And, indeed he and his team did just that. The hors d’oeuvres were fantastic and the main meal simply delicious. His grilled shrimp, bacon wrapped stuffed prunes, jalapeno sausage bites and fava bean bruschetta were tied as the favorite of nine hors d’oeuvres and the swordfish kabobs won out over the lamb kabobs as the favorite main course dish. But what stood out was the elegant presentation. Each dish was garnished with edible flowers and fruit and complimented the table setting, flowers, and decorations that we had labored over for weeks in advance. All-in-all it was a superb performance and I highly recommend Chef Tyler and his team for any Wedding event or other event where fabulous food is a priority. Our guests all agreed that the food didn't even rate on a "wedding food" scale, but rather in the top for best meal anywhere! And, to top off the fabulous food and service, I am compelled to mention Chef Tyler's integrity...in my neurotic madness of my only daughter getting married, I inadvertently over paid/tipped by quite a large sum. He emailed me first thing the following morning to point out the potential error and the possibility that I forgot about giving him a deposit, with an offer to return the deposit amount. Integrity is hard to find these days, but you will find it in Chef Tyler, along with amazing culinary talent! My advice - stop considering his services and hire him. You won't find one negative thing to say after your event, only gushing compliments!
Chef David Mallard provided an unforgettable dinning experience for my wife's surprise birthday. Our friend were blown away by a personal chef for intimate affair. David was professional and excited about the occasion. His food was flawless and his presentation top notch. I will not only use David Mallard again, I will recommend him to all of my friends. Thanks David!
My coworkers and I had a GREAT time during our cooking class with The Cook Nook. Catherine was very professional and knowledgeable , she was very helpful, and made the class fun. We learned how to correctly hold a knife, chop vegetables, and my favorite part, make homemade egg rolls! I’d recommend Catherine and The Cook Nook 1,000%!!
Terique is a fabulous chef who not only 'plates' food tremendously, but can truly craft a meal that satisfies your taste buds as well as any dietary restrictions you may have. He is professional, timely, attentive, and extremely affordable. Book him for your next dinner, group function, weekly personal chef - you will not be disappointed. As a busy professional who does not have time to cook, I rely on Terique to prepare my meals in advance, so I can eat healthy, and most importanty, affordably. C.E. Hobbs II Washington, DC
I am SO glad I chose to hire Joya to be the private chef at my event. She cooked 5 meals for us + snacks all vegan. Not everyone at the event was vegan but everyone found ALL the meals delicious which was amazing. She was one time and on schedule for everything, so sweet, put a lot of love into her food/work and I truly hope to work with her again in the future. If you are thinking about hiring Joya definitely do it! You will not regret it.

Chef Margo has been instrumental in helping us manage multiple food allergies as well as gluten free cooking. You want a nut/gluten/soy/dairy/egg free great tasting muffin? No problem! She has been so patient and our kids often tell her she needs to enter cooking contests. She has a lovely personality and we so look forward to the days she is at our home. We highly recommend her, especially if you want to eat healthfully!!
I appreciate how she was able to come up with an affordable menu that I needed for a party where I needed a menu with dietary restrictions
Chef Jamarr is AMAZING!!! He is so professional and his food is delicious. I have utilized his services for multiple events and I am always 100% satisfied!!! Chef Jamarr is truly the best!!!
Chef Jashin was amazing. I could not have asked for a better first experience with a chef. His ability to cook any cuisine with his own little twist is what made it incredible!!!
I have had the opportunity to have Alex perform cooking services at my home on two occasions. We expect to contract him for further activities with friends at our house. Keep in mind, my wife and I have a newborn, so it is difficult to go to restaurants often. For this reason, we decided to experiment with the services of a "personal chef". First of all, the top notch experience of a knowledgable cook in our own home is quite different from the norm. We were apprehensive at first, but due to his bubbly personality and knowledge, it was an experience that we would not get at any restaurant in Manchester. Second, quality of ingredients and cooking materials is top notch. He brought everything, bought in local markets, in addition to some "secret ingredients" he brought from Puerto Rico. We discussed the menu beforehand and he was quite open to appeasing to our tastes, while at the same time, successfully helping us experience new ingredients. Third, the food was amazing. We agreed to try latin american themed dinners (first time a mexican style burrito dinner, second time a puertorrican themed mofongo dinner). I have never tasted anything like this in New England. The closest place to NH we can taste this type of food is NYC. I recommend Mr. Cruz without reservations.
