Tomorrow, Alissa will have cooked 42 fantastic meals for me and she has cleaned my now-spotless house one time since I hired her. She's earned every one of her 5-stars! Details: I love to eat healthy but I'm a bit neurotic when it comes to cooking, kitchen clean-up and house cleaning. If you've ever seen Saturday Night Live's "Anal-Retentive Chef" then you'll know what I mean. I found myself constantly grocery shopping, cooking and cleaning, leaving little time to do the things I enjoy. Something HAD to change. Setting my misgivings aside, I made up my mind to hire a person to cook weekly meals and another to clean my house every two weeks. So one day I posted an online ad that I was interested in hiring someone to cook and clean. The costs, not knowing how quickly I could get services started and my very high expectations still left me somewhat apprehensive. But then came Alissa Boukal to the rescue! After posting the ad, it was less than an hour when I received my first response--a response from Alissa telling me that she not only cleans, but also does meal preparation. This seemed like a GREAT solution for me (one I hadn't thought of), so I waited a short while for other responses, but none came. Oh, I did receive other responses, but not one person other than Alissa offered to do house cleaning AND cooking. We spoke on the phone about my expectations and Alissa followed up by coming to my house so I could show her how I wanted my house cleaned and to discuss meal planning. She immediately set me at ease by indicating that I'd be easy to cook for and that my house would be as clean as a whistle when she got done with it--so I hired her on the spot and made arrangements for my first week's meals and established a twice-monthly cleaning regimen. She made it very clear that she believes very strongly in two way communication--that it was incumbent upon me to enable her to do her job right by clearly defining what it is I expect from her--no detail too small. I took that to heart and I've held up my part of the bargain. I'm sure that's why I am so very satisfied and comfortable with our arrangement! To ensure success, she provided me with easy-to-fill-out forms where I circled the foods--meats, veggies, carbs, desserts, condiments, etc., that I enjoyed eating and plenty of room to enter comments such as food allergies, or anything specific you want her to know. Now that we're in a routine, I give Alissa the recipes I like or I pick some of her suggested meals to eat for the week (two meals per day) and Alissa shows up at my door every week with easy to reheat, refrigerate or freeze cooked food made just for me. On house cleaning day she arrives with vacuum cleaner in hand (unless you want her to use your vacuum) and she's all business, getting right to work on the dusting, vacuuming, bathrooms, etc.--she truly does it all! I am still very apprehensive about hiring Alissa; now not because of her outstanding work ethic/performance, but because she's made herself so indispensable to me that I don't know how I'd get along without her! Thank you Alissa!

Connie teaches from her heart and her experience. She has given me many tips that have helped me to shop with saving money in mind, and getting the nutritional value from less expensive items. She also has had cooking classes in her home, one of which I was priviledged to attend. Her guest was author Kay Young. Ms. Young taught us about gathering and cooking wild plants of the Great Plains in her book, Wild Seasons. So from personal experience and connection with awesome writers one can learn alot from Connie.

Aubrey is THE BEST. I've hired dozens of personal chefs for dinner parties and events and Aubrey is in a class of her own. Whether you're looking for something simple and affordable or fancy and high-end Aubrey is amazing. Her food is perfection and personally she is warm, friendly, and a pleasure to work with. I could not recommend her more highly!

Isiaih is incredible. He catered an amazing party for me. He has great menu ideas. Her arrived promptly and was kind to all guests. The food was over the top delicious and beautifully presented. The talk of the day was, "Who is the caterer?' I can't wait to have him back!! PS The roasted tomato basil parm tartlettes were the guests favorite.

What an amazing event that Zurlo's helped us create!!! When I first contacted Wendy, she invited me to the Bistro for a tasting, which was such a fun experience. The food was excellent and truly enjoyed the afternoon. She then provided pricing to us and worked through some options to allow us to meet our budget. She and her chef, David arrived promptly, set up in our kitchen, and immediately starting plated the appetizers. The brushetta was superb and the lobster ravioli was the star of the night!!! David was entertaining the girls with his culinary skills while Wendy was graciously serving and clearing our dishes. We then moved on to the main course - chicken piccata with angel hair pasta and asparagus. Delicious!!!! To my surprise, they even washed all of our dishes!!!! What a great way to entertain, amazing food - fantastic service - and all the while in the comfort of our own home. I highly recommend Zurlo's!!! Thank you Wendy and David for making this anniversary celebration one to remember!!!

I love Chef Rebeka's meals! It's so nice to have something already prepared to warm up on nights when we are to busy to put a meal together ourselves. A couple of my favorites are the quiche and the Thai meatballs. Chef Rebeka was able to make them both Gluten Free for our family!!

We had a great experience. Henry was very nice, organized, and professional. His meal was great and cooked perfectly. When done, Henry cleaned all the dishes, packed the leftovers and extra ingredients in our fridge, and left us the recipes of the meal. Thank you Henry.

Mary Beth provided an amazing evening for my mother-in-law's 60th birthday, expertly designing, preparing, and serving a five-course French menu that exceeded our high expectations. She was easy to work with as we threw several curveballs at her leading up to the dinner and everyone in attendance was impressed and thoroughly satisfied at the evening she put together for us.

Chef Cindy Trejo catered my son's graduation party for nearly 200 people. We had street tacos, nachos, homemade salsa and fruit salad. We received rave reviews from our guests! The only drawback to the catering job was that we ran out of tortillas (Chef Cindy brought 400 tortillas!). I highly recommend Chef Cindy Trejo

Ryan Gish took the time to investigate our vision. He already knew our clientele from his previous business experience, which was an obvious plus. His work ethic coupled with his joie de vivre made for a memorable VVIP catering experience.

Al did an amazing job for a client of mine. The bride and groom were very specific in their visions and he brought it all together! They were literally speechless at their reception and raved about how he went above and beyond what they thought he could do.
