I have had the wonderful experience of cooking classes with Zacki. I find her to be very organized, articulate and creative. Not only does she provide wonderful recipes, but her eye for presentation and detail is amazing! Zacki is very kind and personable and has many years of experience in the field of personal chef/catering. She truly cares about sharing her knowledge and passion for great food and entertaining! I have seen photos of her catering events and feel she has an incredible talent for setting the tone with her food and drink presentation. Her catering talents would make any event a special event!

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 wanted to surprise my wife with a nice candlelight dinner. I contacted Chef Lemar and told him some foods that my wife enjoys. He responded within a day with a great menu! We made a couple of tweaks but it was completely due to preferences. I would recommend Chef Lemar not only for the food but also the price. He made some of the best food I have had and he was by far the most reasonable in regards to price. If you need a personal chef in the triangle area, go with Chef Lemar. I promise you won't be disappointed!

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 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.

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!!!

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!

Jason skills as chef are stupendous. He has a very great detail for his dishes. One that I've tried, a pasta with a sauce of tomatoes and basil which coordinates to not over force his meaty flavor.

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 took us a few rounds to get in the "groove" as we are fairly picky & have dietary requirements...but she adapted quickly.


I cook 2 weeks worth of meals in your home. Then I store them in your freezer. You just following the reheating instructions. I do all the shopping, cooking and cleaning. You just relax and enjoy the extra time! It's healthier, certainly, than eating on the run. And it's more affordable than you may think. Full-time, part-time and referral discounts available. I am also available for dinner parties (romantic dinners, special occasions). I can stay and serve. Or leave and let you take all the credit. Anything to impress your friends! Gift Certificates also available. (Christmas, new mothers, post-surgery, etc.) So contact me for a free consultation today and a 20% introductory discount!
