For The Love of Food & Drink was everything we hoped for and more! The food was delicious and the staff was amazing! We had a bourbon tasting where we wanted the bartender to be engaged with our guests she did just that. The Chef was just as engaged with our guests which we loved. We will definitely be using them again!
Jen is the one of the greatest things to ever happen to me. She cooks delicious food, has large portions and brings it to my place with a smile. Exactly what i had in my mind with a personal chef. Looking foward to the future of eating all her food all the time!
Chef Cristo is reliable, personable and a great chef. We have used him 3 years in a row, and will continue for many more years. This year we also hired two friendly women to help prepare, cook, serve and clean-up and the trio did a great job.
My experience with Sara's Cooking was most positive. Our son and fiance sadly needed to postpone their wedding plans a few weeks before the actual wedding date. Because so many people had made plans, purchased airline tickets...etc. We decided to turn our lemons into lemonade by hosting a friends and family event on the date the wedding would have been. We had committed to having Sara's Cooking for the wedding and now we needed to switch gears in changing our venue. Sara graciously and easily accommodated our switch and do so with utmost kindness. The food was most incredible with an international flare, home cooked goodness and beautiful presentation. I purposely had chosen Sara's Cooking because her menu selections grabbed my attention right away. My husband and I were not disappointed and neither were our guests. The chefs are topnotch, pay careful attention to detail, friendly, fun and were most accommodating to all our needs as we hosted our gathering. I will always recommend them and use them again for future events.
My friends and I enjoyed our dinner together. I liked the environment that we cooked in. The chef was very knowledgeable and we all enjoyed sharing in the cooking. One of the items was a new recipe that she tried on us that did not turn out well and the dinner also took longer than expected. I appreciated the price she gave us and thought that was reasonable considering the entire event.
William Ference Catering cooks for our family on a weekly basis. He is an excellent chef that comes up with creative healthy dishes on a weekly basis. He was very attentive to our dietary needs and proposes menus that meet our objectives. The food is always excellent. He picks out excellent ingredients, is a pleasure to have in the house and always cleans up everything when he is finished cooking. We highly recommend him for your personal chef needs.
Chef Randall is one of the best services I've contracted. He was professional, punctual and an exceptional chef. I've contracted his services 3 times now and he out does himself every time. Chef Randall will be my go to personal chef and caterer for a long, long time.
Lori, her partner Sam and her staff made my small event seamless. Lori and I were able to effectively communicate via email and text a half a dozen times in the span of 17 days which proved a tremendous value for me in terms of my time and energy. The team were prompt, professional, friendly, anticipated my needs and stayed on top of everything all night. They met and exceeded all my expectations and received rave reviews from my 50 guests. Chef Jim and Crew Debbie and Jim - I welcome you back anytime. It was so much fun to work with you. Chef Jim - The food and presentation was awesome and abundant. Thank you! Debbie and Jim - thank you for staying on top of the time and making it effortless for me to stay on schedule and stlll be able to enjoy the party with my guests. I look forward to working with all of you again.
Benjamin catered a fantastic selection of delicious healthy items at our holiday party. He timed the food perfectly and made sure the party flowed. He is delightful and a gifted chef. He will be our go to chef for all events!
Chef Reed and and his staff of culinarians and service staff provided a wonderful holiday feast for Phillips Exeter Academy. The attention to flavor profiles, detail in execution in all the selections were exceptional. Chef Reed attended all planning meetings, developed all the menus based on a shared vision while providing timely quotes. The wait-staff were professional, well presented and attentive to guests while ensuring the food presentation were maintained. I would highly recommend Thyme and TIDE Catering.
Jill has cooked for us for many years in several different settings: for the family as well as for both small and large events. She is always 100% reliable and the food that she cooks is absolutely delicious and full of love. She can cook with ease in both vegan, vegetarian and omnivore settings. Her understanding of food as medicine and of food sensitivities has made things so much easier for me. Jill is a delight and I highly recommend her!
Beth has been very easy to work with, and we love her food. She is extremely flexible, and is willing to either cook at her own home and deliver, or cook in your home. She will either provide you with a menu, or let you send her recipes! And the food is delicious and healthy. We're glad we found her and decided to give a personal chef a try! It's really helped the weeknight dinner rush and made evenings more enjoyable with the family since we can focus on being together after a long day, rather than worrying about what's for dinner!
I hired Elizabeth to shop, prepare, and cook a Birthday meal for my mother. Elizabeth was professional in her communications (text and over the phone). She was thoughtful in suggestions and thorough in creating a plan. She arrived on time, prepared and cooked an excellent meal, then left the kitchen in better shape than she found it. My mother loved getting to know Elizabeth, appreciated the high level of professionalism and service, and very much enjoyed the food. Because I live out of state, it was important to me that I get to know Elizabeth before trusting her to go into my parents' home. I found her to be honest, forthcoming, and a genuinely good person. My parents agree. My mother wishes to hire her again for future parties. I highly recommend Elizabeth as a personal chef.
I highly recommend Matt Stogryn as private Chef for parties large and small. I have worked with Matt on a Holiday Party for 100, and a dinner party for 12. Both times, Matt consulted with me with plenty of advance notice regarding menu, food restrictions, and drink pairings. Matt was on time, very organized with his prep. Matt was charming and knowledgeable when presenting each course to my guests, and the food was fantastic! Matt was clear on pricing in advance, took care of every detail. Wit Matt in the kitchen, I was able to enjoy my guests, and we all loved the food.
We hired CHEFreyL because we wanted to do something special for my mother’s birthday and we were not disappointed. The food was amazing, his instruction was fun and informative and everyone had a great night. Not only is CHEFreyL a great chef, he is good company. We were disappointed he couldn’t stay and share a glass of wine with us. We will definitely have CHEFreyL back in the future and we would recommend him to anyone.
Christopher provided a fantastic 4-course meal for our 18 person party. He was accommodating, responsive to emails, personable and most importantly a great chef. I intend on hiring him again in the future and would highly recommend to anyone else.
I do in-house dinners, custom menus, special needs, dietary, vegetarian, weight loss/gain programs, family meals, high-end meals, and comfort foods. You name it, and we can work together to provide complete satisfaction.
I work and cater for certain events. I do mostly drop offs do to my tight schedule. I also do a one time private chef business too unless other things come to mind.
