I have had the wonderful experience of cooking classes with Zacki. I find her to be very organized, articulate and creative. Not only does she provide wonderful recipes, but her eye for presentation and detail is amazing! Zacki is very kind and personable and has many years of experience in the field of personal chef/catering. She truly cares about sharing her knowledge and passion for great food and entertaining! I have seen photos of her catering events and feel she has an incredible talent for setting the tone with her food and drink presentation. Her catering talents would make any event a special event!

Emma was prompt to respond to questions for a cooking class/meal prep for vegan diet. It was a gift and my daughter was very pleased with the food and the learning. Great to work with Emma.

Cheryl Edwards prepared, plated and served the most extraordinary 4-course dinner party at my home in August 2015. The menu she dreamed up was exquisite - quail with an amazing mushroom sauce, vegetable timbale, beef tenderloin with parsnip and potato puree, and chocolate cake with cherry sauce and fresh vanilla-scented whipped cream. One of our guests said later "I loved, loved, loved Cheryl's cooking." Cheryl was a pleasure to work with - organized, punctual, a true professional chef, who was poised in explaining each course to us and was warm and friendly. She helped us make our guests feel very special. Cheryl is a wonderful partner for having a winning event! We are so enthusiastic about the dinner party that we have already asked her to help us with a party later in the year. My husband and I cannot recommend Cheryl highly enough.

Chef Alexis is knowledgeable, creative, experienced and eager to try something different to make sure your menu is exactly how you want it. Consistently I saw him err on the side of fresher and culturally appropriate ingredients, cooking techniques that bring out best flavors and maximize the final quality of ingredients etc. Leo is an awesome part of the AV team-he helped us find the perfect venue, figure out the timeline, the set up, etc. During the wedding, he came up with solutions for any problems that arose and ran them quickly by us to make sure we were happy with that approach. Definitely recommend these guys.

I worked with Teresa over the phone from Boston as she lives near my parents who recently retired to Raleigh. She planned a cooking class for my parents to introduce new and delicious ideas catering to a very restrictive diet they have for health reasons. My parents loved it! Teresa was very patient with scheduling everything, had strong follow through, is very professional and according to my parents was fun to work with. Thank you, Teresa!!!

Chef Tim provided me services for my Housewarming/Blessing. I had a Sunday Brunch where Chef Tim made delicious cook to order omelets and waffles. My family loved his friendly personality and I appreciated his set up, clean up and organization assistance. He was professional while being a delight to work with at a stressful time. I would STRONGLY recommend him for any event.
