We just had a wonderful evening with Zacki at our church! She brought her culinary skills and extensive knowledge of Mediterranean cooking during the time of Jesus, and wow-ed us with a spectacular dinner of roasted lemon/rosemary chicken, roasted veggies over bulgar, salad with pomegranate dressing, roasted pita bread with hummus - all with Zacki's special spices. We also enjoyed a selection of melons, pistachio cookies and "Jesus" bread (walnut/grape bread) for dessert. The meal was a big hit, enjoyed by all, and HEALTHY! Then, to top it off, we were graced with a powerpoint presentation about the foods of the time of Jesus, and we all learned quite a bit! She had some of our members come early to help with food preparation, where they could get hands-on experience in preparing this meal. I think those of us who came & helped got the MOST out of the evening!! Zacki was most gracious (our church kitchen was quite lacking in some of the items needed to prepare this meal) and she was quick to improvise and made everything work wonderfully!!! Zacki is prompt, is very professional, and a lot of fun to work with! Her assistant Deborah was a gem as well!!
We’ve used Em’s catering for both large events and small meals (like a delivery meal to a new mama). She is consistently professional and her food is great. While some chef’s excel in one particular area, all of Em’s food (from appetizers to main dishes, sides, and desserts) are wonderful. Our personal favorites are: Beef Wellington, mushroom risotto, grilled romaine Caesar, warm pumpkin cake, and her yearly Christmas cookies. (I have Em bake cookies for all of my kids teachers) She’s sweet and easy to work with-highly recommend!
Chef Camille and her team catered my August 2014 wedding reception AMAZINGLY! She was extremely helpful in creating a menu that complimented our tropical theme. ChefCamille was a delight to work with she very professional, offered creative ideas but also patient & accomodating with the overwhelmed bride-2-be, me;). Presentation was elegant, heard the food was yummy and guests are still raving about how delicious 2Girls Catering cupcakes were. Sometimes everything doesn't unfold exactly how one plans, but I applaud this cater in going the extra mile to make her customers happy at the end of the day. Want great service, delish dishes, fab desserts all executed with compassion & sensitivity to your personal request as well as outstanding professionalism give Chef Camille a call! Oh yea, with hectic schedules we all fight to find the time to create well balanced meals, so try 2girls prepared meals. We did and loved it! Thanks ChefCamille for being such a blessings to us♡♡♡
I utilized Soul Sing's "meals for a week" service. The chef, Barbara VanAlstyne prepared (3) meals of a sizable quantity for my family to eat off of throughout the busy school/work week. It was awesome coming home and not having to worry with cooking -- just heat and serve. Even better than that was the fact that the meals were prepared to requested dietary preferences, nutritious and tasted delicious!! Such high quality meals could only be prepared by someone pouring out passion during the preparation! I look forward to using Soul Sing again!
"I always dreamed of having a personal chef. Someone who would cook healthy, organic, nutritious and delicious meals. Make special requests. Cater and appeal to our diverse household age group 2 yrs - 88 yrs old! And be someone I would feel comfortable having in my home and being with my family. My dream came true when I was introduced to Maureen! " Lindy...Wake Forest NC
I have ordered for several weeks from the South Charlotte Chef, Sandra Mann, and I am delighted! The service is perfect, the food delicious and Sandra is wonderful. I would highly, highly recommend her.
Matthew provided his services for a meal on my wife's birthday earlier this month. It exceeded our expectations. Incredible presentation, each course was a treat that left us wanting more and eagerly anticipating the next course. Plus, Matthew has a great personality and was a joy to get to know. A great experience.
I was always getting sick until she helped me change my diet. I didn't even workout, I just ate her meal plan and lost weight.
My experience with halo flavor is very delicious! The food has very high-quality premium preparation. The service that I received was outstanding. I would highly recommend the quality dishes My Personal favorite is the hand battered shrimp. I really enjoyed my evening with this business.
Steven, owner of My Chef Catering, was a good listener. He was able to grasp what we wanted to convey to a large group of people at a corporate environment and prepared a menu that impressed everyone. Staff commented on his personality and had nothing but positive to say about him. We were so pleased that we will be using him to cook weekly prepared easy meals for our elderly aunt. We highly recommend him!
Divine Creations have been the catering service for my pastoral anniversary for 13 years. Each year is unbelievable, the preparation, the decor and the food is so delicious!!! You get so much more than what you actually pay for. Each year she surprises us with a dish we didn't pay for. Ms. Hattie is such a jewel to do business with, she's very professional and loving. I would recommend her services to the White House, I assure you they would not know the difference in service because she is just that good!!!!! Dr. Arlene Chavis
I enthusiastically recommend Carolina Culinary Creations. I have had several dinners and parties catered for diners that had a variety of food allergies, including gluten, dairy and soy and preferences including vegetarian, vegan and paleo. The owner was able to provide delicious gourmet meals that met all allergy and food preference requirements within my budget. I found her to be professional at every stage of involvement from the initial contact, to meal planning, execution and cleanup. She was always quick to respond and able to work within some unique kitchen environments. My guests could not say enough about the quality of the meals. I plan on using her for all my entertainment needs
From the very beginning Paul was so wonderful to work with. He was very accommodating and even created a menu for us that wasn’t something that was on his usual menu. Every time I contacted him regarding details for the party he answered in a timely matter and answered any and all my questions. He even did a taste test for us in our home so that we would know what to expect and also allowed us to tweak anything if needed (but no tweaking was necessary). The day of the event he was on time and when it was time for our guests to order he was ready and waiting. The food he prepared was amazing and very affordable. He made sure that my daughters graduation party was perfect. I don’t think Paul realizes how much stress he took from my husband and I. He thought of everything!!! We WILL be using his services again! Thank you, Paul for making our daughters party everything she wanted and allowing us to visit and enjoy time with our family! The Anderson’s
Love the passion behind Ali’s product. The preparation instructions for each meal are easy to follow. It is wonderful to have a healthy, flavorful, homecooked meal in the freezer for the busy weeks ahead.
The Food Fairy team prepares delicious food - at my house. I love it! It allows me free evenings with no cooking, great lunches for work, and a way to save time, & money, by prioritizing my work/life balance. By being on board with the Food Fairy, everything runs like magic!
Julia has cooked for my family recently and we have loved everything she has made! I would highly recommend her not only for her culinary skills but for her thoughtful and kind personality. Her recipes are delicious but she can also take your recipes and make them when you don't have the time. It's great to have food that is nicely prepared...so much better than eating out and more reasonably priced.
Nice food and service. I would defiantly be back!
We were impressed and pleased with Vicente's preparation of our delicious meal! He made everything from scratch, some prepared prior to visiting our home, the rest prepared in our own kitchen. He is organized, professional, neat and courteous. And our meal was not only delicious, but also accommodated the vegetarian member of the household with more than one dish, proving Vicente is not only skilled, but thoughtful. You can't ask for more than that!
Terri was wonderful and personable. it was a little chaotic whens he arrived from allof us being tired after the wedding the day before. She came in took charge and set everything up. the food was delicious. I am trying to find an excuse to use hr services again. .
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.
I offer catering services, which include setting up, decorating, serving, greeting, and cleaning up. I can also help with planning, customer service, making phone calls, and doing shopping. I do most anything that a client needs, ones that deal with catering and preparation of food. I do all trays.
