I recently used Zacki’s Creations to come into our home and prepare a Mother’s Day brunch for a group of 10 adults and 3 little ones. Zacki was extremely responsive to my initial request for a quote, and very helpful in offering suggestions when creating a menu. The food was delicious with blueberry pancakes made fresh and hot off the griddle, egg and sausage casserole straight from the oven, a fresh fruit platter, and fresh mandarin orange mimosas. In addition to giving me the chance to be a guest at our family get together, she invited my 5 year old son and 4 year old niece to help as her “sous chefs” in the kitchen and they had a blast being her little helpers. I would definitely recommend Zacki to anyone who is looking to host an event in their home without having the added pressure and stress of preparing/cooking the meal so that you may enjoy your visit with friends and loved ones.

We’ve used Em’s catering for both large events and small meals (like a delivery meal to a new mama). She is consistently professional and her food is great. While some chef’s excel in one particular area, all of Em’s food (from appetizers to main dishes, sides, and desserts) are wonderful. Our personal favorites are: Beef Wellington, mushroom risotto, grilled romaine Caesar, warm pumpkin cake, and her yearly Christmas cookies. (I have Em bake cookies for all of my kids teachers) She’s sweet and easy to work with-highly recommend!

Soul Sing Cuisine is not just food... it's an experience. Chef Barbara Van Alstyne creates a perfect combination of superb taste and visual appeal with each dish. Do not bring your salt & pepper or hot sauce the table. Her food is not greasy, and it's not salty. What you taste when you bite into it is flavor. I highly recommend Soul Sign Cuisine for your next personal, private, or corporate cuisine needs.

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!

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!!!

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!

Hats off to the chef..the food is to die for .. I've had the pleasure of enjoying lorrielle's cuisine before it was officially established and believe me when I tell you that you won't find anything like it on this coast ... you'd better get it while it's still personable... because this business is sure to grow to franchise status...the owner is a sweetheart that is willing to customize and cater to any eating preference..and when you meet her she's like a BFF you didn't know you had....great people.
