“A great time was had by all” – at a "hands-on" cooking class that Chef Tyler did for 16 future homeowners at Trilogy Lake Norman. We asked him to design a cooking lesson, advertised it to our future home owners, gave him access to one of the kitchens in our Model Gallery, and he just did his thing. WOW! The follow-up questionnaires rated the event 9.4 for “fun”, 9.5 for “Chef’s knowledge”. How do you follow that? Simple - We are scheduling additional “Cooking Classes with Chef Tyler!”

I had Julian do a private cooking class for 12 of us. It was fabulous! Everyone enjoyed him, his humor, tips and food of course. Would hire him again in a heartbeat! Outstanding.

This was my first experience with Carolina Gourmet Catering and using Thumbtack services. The original follow up was prompt however, the phone contact with Michelle is what sealed the deal to use the company. She was friendly, caring and very understanding while providing guidance during the planning stages. Follow up with her during the process and closer to the event was just as relaxed and enjoyable as the original contact. She arrived at the scheduled time and promptly arranged the food platters. The food was out standing and everyone at the event gave praise for the selection prepared by her. The entire experience was enjoyable and very professional. I would highly recommend this catering service. Michelle was very personable and really connected with wanting to serve her customers and make sure that their experience was first class !!!!!

Mr. Farlow's business started about the time I was injured in a serious accident. It was a blessing for me to be able to order meals that were delivered to my house at least once a week. It helped me to know that a nice meal was waiting at the end of my husband's busy day! The food is sooo good, that once I recovered, I continued to order meals every now and then. Recently, a co-worker's daughter was found to have cancer and they were very busy with doctor appointments and therapy, so, we asked Mr. Farlow if he would deliver a meal to her home. What a surprise she had, and she talked about how good everything was for weeks! What an amazing talent, and what an amazing gift to give others; especially when cooking for yourself is not an option! Thank you, Jim!!!

Jessica Luntz is a professional who is organized, experienced, communicative and did I mention she can cook! I totally enjoyed the experience with Jessica and Saucy Spoon Cooking from the beginning stages of selecting a menu to the end where after the meal she left the kitchen immaculate. I would encourage anyone considering a chef led cooking class/demonstration or dinner party to contact Jessica immediately!

I used Divine Cultural Cuisine for a private dinner party for 4. The Chef showed up on time with all the equipment. He was very careful and precise in cleaning his work area before and AFTER dinner. The party started at 7 pm and he showed up around 615pm to start prep work. Our menu was amazing and I am still full while typing this review. It consisted of Savannah calamari and crab stuffed shrimp as an appetizer. The portions were huge. We literally had to tell him to take the plate from us or we wouldn't have been able to eat the entree or dessert. I have to add, he applied some "orange sauce" to the shrimp that I literally would drink a bucket of. Chef Reeves is a saucier by trade so he knows what he is doing. Next, we were served a mixed green salad with a warm raspberry hazelnut dressing which was divine. Our main course was a surf and turf menu of orange soy glazed salmon and NY strip with mixed veggies and potato cakes. I don't know where to start. The steak was cooked perfectly. Salmon was cooked so well that I am troubled that I may never be able to cook salmon in my household again. And this orange soy glaze. He wouldn't tell us the ingredients but we tried to bribe him an undisclosed amount of money which he politely refused. I personally like grits so he made a side dish of his grits. They were the best grits I have ever tasted in my life and I am born and raised in the South. Just a wonderful meal from this point that was about to blow our minds. For dessert, might I add I don't even remember when he prepared it as we were stuffing our faces, creme brulee cheesecake with a white chocolate sauce and red velvet cake shooters with fresh fruit. The entire meal was better than I ever expected. My only regret is that we didn't know Chef Reeves and Divine Cultural Cuisine when we were getting married as we surely would have had him cater for us. We will be reaching out to him. We will be using him in the future and I truly believe if you have read all of this review up to this point, you will use him too.

Arrived on time, Well prepared. Time line for appetizers and main course was was spot on. Presentation was very good. Interesting conversations about cooking and various foods.. The peri peri chicken livers as an appetizer was my favorite. Different taste with just the right kick...We fed 9 people and 4 little ones. Carol's cost was much less than a restaurant. Plus, food was fresh and we did not have to worry about our 4 noise makers... Will likely do it again for the next special happening.

Kevin helped me with a private party at my house for about 30 people. We wanted a diverse selection of heavy and light appetizers served throughout the evening. Not only was Kevin prompt, professional, and positive in his demeanor, his cooking was exceptional. Our guests made repeated compliments to the chef for the quality and variety of appetizers served. Kevin worked nonstop throughout the evening to make the party a memorable & successful event.

Overall very impressed and already planning my next event with him after the new year. The food was great and my family loved the brunch he prepared. The plan ended up being different than what was originally agreed to but was all positive. I had asked for the food to be dropped off but Chef Thomas ended up cooking the food on site. He even made a special banana foster with leftover ingredients for the waffles. Chef Thomas is just starting off in his career so I'd say be willing to be flexible as he continues to perfect his craft- well worth it!

Chef Shai was so great to work with. We are out of state and he was so accommodating. He came up with the most wonderful table side S'mores dessert for our family! He even was able to accommodate a little one with allergies! We would use him again in a heartbeat!

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!!!
