Michelle is amazing! She is such a good cook. She buys the food and makes us 4 meals plus a dessert each week and drops it off. We have to do nothing but eat! She's working with us to be more healthy and also delicious! So easy to work with. She'll be giving me cooking lessons soon as well. Highly recommend!!

Michelle has catered several diners for me and my guests. She planned the meals, created the menus, bought the necessary food and paired the wine. These were all multi course meals (up to six courses!). Fresh game was often used. the creative sauces she prepared for each main course were outstanding! Michelle prepared and served these dinners for up to eight guests, providing a brief description of each course before serving. The meals were served hot and on time and the quality was of the highest order. Michelle is an experienced chef and has served as an executive chef at one of the best restaurants in the area. She also teaches others her culinary craft including some of the secrets to success. She has a background in art which is evident in the presentation of her dishes. I would recommended her with out reservation for parties small and large. The assembled group will be in for a real treat!

We worked with Graham when he was cooking Thai food along with Myo Koongnoo. Graham's culinary skills are impressive and wide ranging. What is even better is that he is a very nice and considerate person. We highly recommend him.

We booked Vince for a ladies night cooking demo in the hopes that we would learn a few tricks of the trade while enjoying some fine dining and good company. Whether engaged in a hands-on demonstration of how to fold the perfect empanada, learning the basics of a solid gastrique, or savoring every last nibble of the Fish en Papillote that we each tailored to our own tastes, Vince thoughtfully prepared every aspect of the three course meal and designed the presentation such that there was never a lull. The whole process was seamless, and Vince’s charisma and passion for cooking made for a 5 star experience and we can't wait to cook with him again!

    Cindy is experienced, professional, a great chef, and instructor! Over the past year I have learned how to sear scallops, make incredible pasta dishes and steam a lobster tail to assemble a lobster roll that was so delicious. Cindy is eager to share her knowledge and techniques with her students and clients. There is nothing to worry about if Chef Cindy is hosting your event or cooking party!
