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.

In my search for a personal Chef to prepare the meal for my wife’s Birthday party (of 6) at our home, I took to the internet and found the Thumbtack website. With a few clicks I entered the required information and waited for Chef’s to contact me via email. I was a little skeptical about who would be reaching out to me, and set my on a couple local companies I knew for a quote. I was down to 6 days. Of all the Chef’s I heard from, Chef Nico stood out to me because first he is in the Army and my wife is retired Army, and he didn’t send me to a website to review a thousand menu offerings like everyone else. He sent me a note with a quote and 5 or 6 choices per category. He told me to choose a salad, 2 appetizers, 2 entree and dessert. This made the process so much simpler for my personality. Once I sent him my initial thoughts for the food, I was able to set-up a call with him and discuss all the logistics and finalize a custom dinner offering. He is really easy to talk to and accommodating. He even sent me additional dessert options because although fantastic, the originals were not what I thought she would enjoy the most. We even added a Chef’s table concept so he would interact with the family during the cooking process. About 3 hrs. before the event I texted Chef to let him know my party of 6 was now a party for 7! My son came home for college to attend the party and brought his girlfriend. Chef wasn’t fazed by the last minute change at all and also advised me that he couldn’t find any fresh Calamari so he was switching one appetizer to Coconut shrimp w/ raspberry horseradish. As expected from a military man he and his assistant Sam were on time, made themselves at home in the kitchen and began prepping and preparing the food. With the first bite we knew we would be in for something special. The presentation was first class and the taste was incredible. He was able to chat with the family and talk a little Army with my wife. There were a couple hiccups, but nothing big. I was really impressed at how they managed to set everything up at in our home and how they cleaned it all up before leaving! I would recommend US Army Chef Nico to anyone needing a personal Chef. I plan to use him again. This was much better than any restaurant experience I could have given her.

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!

My wife was turning 40 and I wanted to do something special for this occasion. We hired Chef Matthew to prepare a meal for about 15 friends and the experience could not have been better. From the planning to the execution of the 5 star meal, Matthew was a consummate professional. His meal was filled with delightful tastes and culinary creativity. My wife and friends were blown away. We are so happy we chose Chef Matthew!

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 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.

I have used Terri and her Food Fairies for 5 years or more. She and her team always provide incredibly delicious food at an incredible price. I throw components at her like tight schedule, and needing all local and organic food, with mostly vegetarian and vegan thrown in to boot, and with energy and positive enthusiasm she delivers. She provides recipes after the fact (and the groups she caters for me almost always want them -- even the carnivores in the group find themselves asking for the vegie recipes), and has worked in difficult conditions, such as kitchens without all the nice amenities, with the results still being stellar.

The Tasty Alternative- Chef Veronique was nothing less of wonderful! Five amazing courses, beautiful presentation, and professional etiquette all surpassed my expectations for a beautiful romantic evening. She was very easy to get in contact with and responded with details. Her personality was warm and friendly and it was pleasure having her as a personal chef for a very private intimate dinner in my home. I'm looking forward to planning our next event and using her services!

I recommend highly Maggie and Comfort Cuisine. She has helped me with dinners for business associates and all kinds of family gatherings including milestone birthdays, engagement parties, and most recently a welcome party before my daughter's wedding. It is cheaper and better than going to a restaurant. All I have to do is get the house clean and decide on a menu, and Maggie takes over. No worries. The food is delicious and her flower arrangements are incredible. Her helpers are efficient and so very nice to work with. For easy, wonderful, at home catered dinners and parties, there is no one better than Maggie and Comfort Cuisine!!

Skynet would like to thank Vicente Rosario, who accompanied us on our last trip to Green Bank Observatory, in January. Vicente has joined us before, but never in his capacity as a professional chef! Take a look at some of the delicious meals and desserts that we were treated to, between our all-day coding sessions. Vicente is based in Hillsborough, NC, and serves both the triangle and the triad.

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!!!

Everything about our dinner was absolutely amazing. Chef Madison carefully planned out a delicious 6 course meal for our friends that was impressive and of the best quality I have seen in this area. We will definitely use Cordial Nights again for all our upcoming private dinner events.

About

My cuisine reflects farm to table with twists and playfulness. Whenever possible, I like to combine the fresh local ingredients with whatever might be in the fridge or pantry. That's truly where the magic happens and the wheels start turning. I am well versed in New American, French, Italian, and Southern culinary styles.
