Zacki's professionalism and quality of food was excellent. Her two staff members were also top rate. I enjoyed getting to know Zacki and would have her again as a personal chef. She catered a dinner for 50 people for my daughter's wedding. It was beautiful and delicious.

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 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 am very pleased with Maida! She is a wonderful person and cares a lot about people. She took me shopping, cooked and I watched so i could take notes. I saw her every week at first, now I'm every other week. I don't think I would be this sucessfull with those who chage $100.00. I bet she makes more money and has a higher sucess rate because of it. Plus she is helping others get health, live longer and feel great! I have been seeing her for over 2 months now. It is a process that takes time, but I'm still learning. I highly recomends her.

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!

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!

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.

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.

We are sharing recipes with the world, more than your average Cajun! While I still offer the occasional cooking demonstration at local gourmet and specialty shops, my cooking is primarily at home. However, in addition to my present focus of writing about cooking and food (Cajun Chef Ryan blog), I'm also working on creating a line of artisan spice mixes, dressings and sauces for future mass production and marketing.

About

I cook 2 weeks worth of meals in your home. Then I store them in your freezer. You just following the reheating instructions. I do all the shopping, cooking and cleaning. You just relax and enjoy the extra time! It's healthier, certainly, than eating on the run. And it's more affordable than you may think. Full-time, part-time and referral discounts available. I am also available for dinner parties (romantic dinners, special occasions). I can stay and serve. Or leave and let you take all the credit. Anything to impress your friends! Gift Certificates also available. (Christmas, new mothers, post-surgery, etc.) So contact me for a free consultation today and a 20% introductory discount!
