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.

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!!!

I have been to several events catered by My Chef Catering and found both their food and presentation to be superb. I have since hired Steven to prepare food for an event and it garnered rave reviews from guests. Steve is easy to work with and I would highly recommend his services. (The fruit salsa with home made cinnamon chips is wonderful!!!)

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.

Really enjoyed the variety of dishes offered--all prepared to perfection! Definitely a restaurant experience. Was also very dependable--never missed a day and got things done on time. My advice is to work closely with Stacey up front...it took us a few rounds to get in the "groove" as we are fairly picky & have dietary requirements...but she adapted quickly.
