I recently had a few friends come visit from Chicago. I wanted to do something different, so I decided to get a personal chef for a evening in. I searched and found Zacki's Culinary Creation and Chef Zacki. I was very impressed by her food and the ability to have them interact with us when cooking the dinner. The cook in your nook was perfect for our evening. Thank you Zacki. I look forward to our next catering together.

OMG! Where do I begin. Emma was AMAZING. We were celebrating a late Valentine's Day and she was perfect. We needed Emma as a personal, intimate evening chef for 2. She arrived on time and instantly got to work. She allowed us privacy while also engaging in conversation. Emma was AMAZING. The aroma coming from the kitchen was something I later laid in bed wishing I could smell over and over. And let's not talk about the FOOD!! OMG. On our evening menu was TENDER, JUICY, AND SUCCULENT Chicken Breast, along with Green beans, and garlic mashed potatoes. AND OMG! It was nothing like we had never tasted before. Emma is truly a Gem and is great at what she does. She has an amazing story to share and would definitely recommend her to ANYONE. We will be using her for all of our future catering and personal chef needs.

I wanted to surprise my wife with a nice candlelight dinner. I contacted Chef Lemar and told him some foods that my wife enjoys. He responded within a day with a great menu! We made a couple of tweaks but it was completely due to preferences. I would recommend Chef Lemar not only for the food but also the price. He made some of the best food I have had and he was by far the most reasonable in regards to price. If you need a personal chef in the triangle area, go with Chef Lemar. I promise you won't be disappointed!

My wife was turning 40 and I wanted to do something special for this occasion. We hired Chef Matthew to prepare a meal for about 15 friends and the experience could not have been better. From the planning to the execution of the 5 star meal, Matthew was a consummate professional. His meal was filled with delightful tastes and culinary creativity. My wife and friends were blown away. We are so happy we chose Chef Matthew!

I have never tasted such good cakes made to order. I have missed Katelyn immensely since she left Charlotte to move to Raleigh. She is the best pastry chef. You will not regret ordering from her. My favorite carrot cake and the apple with spice. Miss you girl!!!

I have been to several events catered by My Chef Catering and found both their food and presentation to be superb. I have since hired Steven to prepare food for an event and it garnered rave reviews from guests. Steve is easy to work with and I would highly recommend his services. (The fruit salsa with home made cinnamon chips is wonderful!!!)

Chef Jocelyn prepared a superb five course tasting dinner with superbly matched wine pairing for twenty. It was a unique setting near the Thousand Islands. The meats were exquisitely prepared and the courses flowed with the evening celebration. Courses were well timed and each course was choreographed and each component was prepared superbly. The lakeside ambience made this a memorable evening especially since the entire dinner was prepared without the availability of electricity the entire dinner was created on a propane stove/oven. Presentation of each item was impeccable.

Maggie was an incredible caterer to work with! I'm so glad she reached out to me. My husband and I are vegan, so it was important to us to find a caterer that could create tasty, plant-based food for our wedding. Maggie was able to craft a menu with dishes from around the world and we received a ton of compliments during dinner from our guests on the food. From grandparents, to fellow vegans, the food was a hit! She and her team exceeded my expectations and helped make our wedding a night to remember :) Thank you Chef Maggie!

I have used Terri and her Food Fairies for 5 years or more. She and her team always provide incredibly delicious food at an incredible price. I throw components at her like tight schedule, and needing all local and organic food, with mostly vegetarian and vegan thrown in to boot, and with energy and positive enthusiasm she delivers. She provides recipes after the fact (and the groups she caters for me almost always want them -- even the carnivores in the group find themselves asking for the vegie recipes), and has worked in difficult conditions, such as kitchens without all the nice amenities, with the results still being stellar.

Jason skills as chef are stupendous. He has a very great detail for his dishes. One that I've tried, a pasta with a sauce of tomatoes and basil which coordinates to not over force his meaty flavor.

Everything about our dinner was absolutely amazing. Chef Madison carefully planned out a delicious 6 course meal for our friends that was impressive and of the best quality I have seen in this area. We will definitely use Cordial Nights again for all our upcoming private dinner events.

Really enjoyed the variety of dishes offered--all prepared to perfection! Definitely a restaurant experience. Was also very dependable--never missed a day and got things done on time. My advice is to work closely with Stacey up front...it took us a few rounds to get in the "groove" as we are fairly picky & have dietary requirements...but she adapted quickly.
