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.

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.

The event was a private dinner party for my wife's birthday. The service and food preparation was beyond our expectations. The food choices were excellent and my guests were very pleased. Some of my guests have asked for Chef Segreto's contact information

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.

Catherine is phenomenal to work with! From the meal planning discussions to arrival at the house for party prep, she's a dream come true! Friendly, flexible and full of fun ideas on how to make your party a success and have people talking about the food (they still are, days later!). She's also a team player- and rushed outside when a downpour threatened to soak all the patio cushions! I was thankful to be able to dig into some leftovers the next day as the food was so delish. I encourage anyone to hire Catherine as your right hand woman for any party planning! I certainly will again and make sure my friends have her # on hand too!

Chef Jmarr was amazing. He prepared a 3 course meal for my very special friend and myself for Father's Day. He was ontime had everything he needed and got right to work.

Thank you Chef for making this Father's Day a hit! You were fantabulous!

While we were not in attendance for Chef Roy's amazing meal as it was a gift for my parents, my husband and I were assured that it was an amazing experience! We were kept up to date with pictures throughout the meal and everything looked outstanding. They had so much fun with Chef Roy and are eager to hire him again in the future (can't wait to be there for the next meal!!!) They loved everything and were even pumped about eating leftovers the next day!

I have had the privilege to know Chef Bou and (even better) to have been able to dine in his creations. His food is prepared with so much passion and you truly experience that in the taste. His expertise and knowledge comes through when watching him (or helping) him prepare a meal, as he is always ready to teach some little tips and tricks. You will NOT be disappointed with his services!

We are highly impressed with meals that Chef Paul has provided for our family. We have been looking for someone to provide meals for our busy family two nights per week and Chef Paul exceeded our expectations. He is extremely professional and his meals are wonderful with a beautiful presentation. These meals are absolutely enjoyable from the first bite to the last it is true perfection. I would highly recommend his services.

Having been to an Artisan dinner at Heirloom, a group of Covenant Presbyterian women asked Clark to come out to our December day retreat for a food demonstration at a friend's lake house. When Clark arrived, we thought we would have to stop the session to help him unload but he was so organized and moved in his prepared coolers in seamlessly. Over mimosas, Clark had this gathering of "foodies" spell bound not only with the food but also with in explaining his passion, philosophy and commitment to supporting NC local growers. We were particularly impressed with Heirloom's use of the entire plant, animal, shell - nothing is wasted which honors the product. The food was over-the-top amazing - extremely filling for 12 people. Clark is at his best multi-tasking while cooking and fielding questions about food. The course selections were varied and delicious (understatement) - and filling for a party of 12. Everything was perfect from set-up>meal prep>presentation>clean-up and we will definitely have Clark back again for another catered event.

My experience with Neighborly Cook was great. Our cook arrived on time, was very attentive to my family and respective of my kitchen. He prepared a delicious pesto pasta, sun-dried tomato, and grilled chicken dish, and even customized a bit of the meal for my picky kids! In addition to the main dish, he prepared a simple, healthy and delicious side salad to kick off the meal. After cooking, the cook cleaned up all utensils he used to prepare the meal and was on his way. It was great! Would definitely use this service again.

    What an unforgettable day we had last Saturday! My daughter was married with her reception in our back yard. My husband and I had worked with a wedding planner and Liazzo's for nine months planning and tweaking that special day. Jessica and Jeremiah from Liazzo's were always prompt and prepared for each meeting, and extremely patient throughout the process. Not only was the food fantastic (people are still raving about it), but it was also beautifully displayed. Each station was unique and the variety provided something for everyone. I have used Liazzo's many times, and they keep getting better all the time. When it's time to have another wedding (I have 3 daughters:) I will definitely use them again!

    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.

    We heard about Kyle from a friend who worked with him at The Pearl in Laguna Beach. Knowing that Thd Pearl is a world class health retreat we decided that we should talk to him. We immediately knew that Kyle would be the perfect person to welcome into our home and who could help us attain our goals through a new diet regeim. He prepared deliciois and creative food for us and we were able to eat more and loose weight quickly and in a healthy way. Kyle was fun to have around in the kitchen and always cleaned up perfectly. He filled our refrigerator with healthy clean food all labeled and packaged for easy consumption. We miss Kyle and hope that someday he will come back to Laguna Beach !!! Can't say enough about this fine chef and friend who helped us attain our health goals !! Thx Kyle. Rick & Lynn Cirelli.
