Carmen was Ana amazing caterer to have! She catered my wedding with only three weeks notice and did a beautiful job! She helped decorate, set up a cheese and cracker buffet, and the meal she prepared was phenomenal. If you have her cater your event, you must request her Macaroni and Cheese! There was none of it left after my reception! Thank you so much Carmen! I couldn't have done this reception without your help! I will be forever thankful for you.

Chef Reeves provided a four course in-home meal for a birthday party of 10. Communication beforehand was great, with easy selection of the courses to be served. Food prep and presentation was excellent. Would recommend and use again in the future.

We are four close couples who enjoy each other’s company and meet often to share good food and drink. We are not running out of interesting restaurants but thought it would be fun and different to have a Personal Chef come to the house and prepare a gourmet meal while we watched. Chef Tyler responded to our Thumbtack request and presented us with a meal concept that seemed just like a winner. And a winner it was. Ever dish was delicious, beautifully garnished, different, and interesting. He used locally sourced produce, unique cooking techniques, sous vide for example, and you could tell he was really into what he was preparing, making sure it was special. A wonderful experience and one we would recommend to all.

Catherine came and cooked an anniversary meal for us at our home. She worked with us to plan the perfect menu and cooked a delicious meal. She was timely and stayed on budget but more importantly she was a pleasure to work with. We would definitely hire her. David Peterson

Chef Dave prepared Christmas Dinner for my family of six. He prepared 2 meats, 3 sides, an additional entree served with white rice, an appetizer and a dessert. Everything was delicious! The meats were well seasoned, juicy and tender. The sides were flavorful. The dessert was a perfect to wonderful meal. There was so much food that I was able to send my brother home with leftovers, freeze enough food for dinner on New Years Day and have leftovers to eat after Christmas. Chef Dave was prompt, friendly and professional. My family and I will be hiring him again in the future.

We needed catering of lunch and dinner for at least 30 days to possibly 1 year, 7 days every week for approximately 100 people with emphasis on vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and special diets. Many caterers with great reviews were easy to dismiss once they were interviewed. Carolina catering delivered what they promised: delicious food at a reasonable price with excellent personal service and a huge selection - even for those special dietary needs. I have used caterers throughout the country to take on this monumental task and no one has delivered the quality, variety, and scrumptious food Carolina Gourmet Catering has. I cannot thank them enough. And, by the way, we are 3 weeks into our project and continue to be very happy with the results. The only problem we have had was running out of food because people have been going back for second and third helpings because the food is so good! Make sure you prepare for this if it's buffet style.

We were celebrating a birthday and hired Sylvia to come into our kitchen and transform it into an interactive "chef's table" experience where six of us would roll up our sleeves and help her prepare a meal. Not only was Sylvia very pleasant to interact with but we were thrilled with the results of our/her efforts in the kitchen. We prepared a variety of sides, paella and dessert over the course of a couple of hours and thouroughly enjoyed the experience... I would recommend Sylvia to anyone looking to replicate this type of unique dinner party experieince.

Chef Michele provides me four lunches per week. She selects the menu and delivers those meals on Tuesdays. As with anything it takes time to acclimate to one another. This experience only seems to be getting better with each week that passes! She should without a doubt bottle and sell her beef stew👍! I believe she can cook just about anything!

You can never ask more than Integrity, great customer service and fairness. We experienced all of this with LEW to the rescue. John and Tamara Lewis

As an owner of vacation and corporate rentals I have recommended Stan Gardner for catering to guests during their stay. He works with the guests to create a personal meal or meals during their stay. I have received rave reviews on everything. His meals are tasteful, unique, and affordable. The guests appreciate the health conscience ways he prepares the meals and his presentation is always impeccable. He personalizes the meals for each guest during their vacations from picnic type lunches during the summer to Thanksgiving and Christmas feasts during the holidays. I would highly recommend Mr. Gardner as a personal chef for a small family gathering or a large party.
