Mimi was very responsive to my specific needs and requests. We came up with several different menus before arriving at the final one. Delivery of the dishes was not only on time but was early. The food was delivered in easy to store and pop into the oven aluminum pans. The cranberry relish was quite a pleasant and tasty surprise; my family also enjoyed the mashed potatoes although they could have been a little creamier, but they were well seasoned and were really good with the turkey gravy. The Mexican corn casserole was my favorite and I could have eaten that alone. The sweet jalapeno cornbread and mac n cheese were also hits with everyone. Because we are not a huge turkey eating family I opted for turkey wings, but I was surprised at the size of the turkey wings as they were HUGE. But I know if I had been "specific" with Mimi she would have definitely accommodated my request (I actually only like the flat part of the turkey wing and the smaller wings). I also would have cooked them longer because I like the meat to fall off the bone when you pick them up and bite into them. Probably my most critical review would be of the stuffing. I prepare my stuffing from cornbread stuffing mix and add sage sausage, so the stuffing fell short of my expectations as it was more 'bread'without the meat. I would hire Mimi again as she was very accommodating and she is eager to please the customer and it seems she goes out of her way to make the customer happy. The food was tasty and I do understand everyone's food will not taste like yours. But it was an enjoyable Thanksgiving dinner for myself and my family; we got full and were happy. And the best part...I didn't have to cook and clean up was easy! Thnx Mimi!

My first in home dining experience with Terique Epps(Personal/Private Chef) exceeded expectations. Mr. Epps was very good with details as he patiently and thoroughly assisted me in planning to host a private dinner for two. Mr. Epps ease, comfort level and compatibility for working with two people that he just met was exceptional. The atmosphere set by Mr. Epps while preparing the food was relaxing, inviting, informative and interactive. The confidence demonstrated by Mr. Epps in preparing the food was like poetry in motion. From the soup, salad, to the main course and the desert every bite taken was delicious and satisfying to the palate. The lamb chops and shrimp were succulent to the taste. The bread pudding topped with a home made glazed pecan sauce was the best that I have eaten. The serving portions were filling and satisfying. Not only did Mr. Epps successfully prepare the meal in my home and kitchen that was new to him; he also left the kitchen clean, dishes washed and everything in place. This was my first private dinner experience but it will not be my last. Personal Chef Terique Epps helped to make it one of the most memorable, enjoyable, fun, enchanting, delightfully pleasing and satisfying experiences that my guest and I have had. I look forward to hosting other private dinners coordinated, planned and prepared by Mr. Terique Epps.
