Chef Tyler catered a small dinner party I attended recently. It was an amazing mix of classy yet met the casual feel of our group. We enjoyed meeting the chefs and their professionalism was top notch! The food was to die for and I tried foods that I have never eaten in my life and tried a spin on foods that I love! I would recommend Chef Tyler for any event you are looking to cater.

Sylvia was delightful to work with. She worked with us in providing very nice menu choices. The food was all fresh and prepared to excellence!! She arrived on time and did everything exactly as agreed. When she left, our kitchen was completely clean. We have used Sylvia twice. The first time my husband contacted her to prepare my birthday www.chefsylvia.com/ Personal Chef Services. ... SIMPLE TO ELEGANT MEALS IN YOUR HOME. Dinner for Two ... Simply Sylvia Personal ...dinner in our home for us and all of our children. They loved the food and being able to relax in our own home. The second time was for a group of close friends. They were so impressed with Sylvia, the food and the way she handled the entire evening. We will use her again. She is amazing!!!!!!

Jessica is a phenomenal chef who clearly has a passion to please others through her savory treats. I attended two of her classes, and each time came home with a new repertoire of recipes. She is entertaining and keeps it real. I replicated her butternut squash recipe for a tough crowd last Thanksgiving, and the compliments kept coming in! Next up: I am looking forward to taking her class on how to cook with a salt block... with good friends and wine, of course. Thanks for building my culinary confidence, Jessica!

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.

I was looking for an option for my best friend's birthday. We had some guest coming in from out of town and we knew they would be going out at least one night of the weekend so we were looking for another option! I basically went on Google and searched "Personal Chefs in Charlotte" and it lead me to Thumbtack. I was like what the hell, I'll give it a shot! So, I did and I received back several quotes almost immediately. I messaged each back and also checked out their profiles and searched them to see what I could find. I like to see pictures and I'm definitely a review reader. Another thing I'm big on is a personal connection. I can tell within a few minutes of talking with someone if I'm going to like that person or not. From the very first messages with Chris, I knew he was our guy. He was crazy quick at responding, which myself and our Type A birthday girl loved and I could tell was just a laid back guy. We are completely open to any food as long as it's good so I pretty much let him take the lead. He introduced the idea of a an Italian tasting menu to me and gave me some options and with the approval of the BG, we made our selections. He got to our party spot right on time, brought everything he needed and was very professional. He got to work right away getting everything started and we knew right off the bat he was going to work with us. He entertained all of our crazy questions while still working and just went with the flow. His food was AMAZING. Everything was so good. A few of us tried things we had never had and were pleasantly surprised. I believe in supporting small businesses and this guy was definitely worth every penny we spent. I will most definitely reach out to Chris in the future for my entertaining needs! Thank you Chef Chris for being awesome and putting up with us!!!
