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!
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.
Leslie is a fabulous chef. She creates gorgeous, delicious, nourishing food. She loves to feed people; loves to make them full and happy. Leslie is always smiling. Thanks, Leslie!

Meredith was our server was professional, efficient and very personable. Our dinner party guests included 'foodies' ...Chef exceeded their expectations! The cleanup was quiet and swift... left the kitchen spotless. Communication with Chris from day 1 was superb. We can recommend Chef Chris and Meredith without hesitation!

Theresa catered our daughter's wedding. She was the ultimate professional! The food was excellent and presented artistically. Theresa, along with her staff/bartender (Glenn) were very personable, on-time and very courteous. They maintained their professionalism throughout the event and ensured that everything was clean when finished. We would highly recommend Theresa and her staff. Did I mentioned she's an excellent Chef? Well, she is! Thanks Theresa, we'll definitely use your service for future events.
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 had the pleasure of experiencing Chef Stacy's food at a local restaurant, and it was absolutely delicious! A few months down the line, I opened a business and needed a caterer for my grand opening. I contacted Chef Stacey in hopes that he provided this kind of service.. Thankfully he did! From the first consult until the end of the event he was extremely professional, pleasant, the array of food that I could choose from and that he provide was amazing, his table and presentation of the food was flawless! My customers and I was extremely happy with his service that evening! So much that when I moved locations of my business, that we hired him again!!! I would definitely recommend Chef Stacy for your catering needs!
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.

We have our home cleaned by Denise! She has been great to me and my family, she is fair with her pricing and goes above and beyond every time! Not only is she great at her job, she is also a great cook, and very handy! Being someone that works a lot, it is good to know that I have a trustworthy person to help with everyday tasks!
Back in 2013, Daniel helped me pull off an amazing private alumni event for 20+ guests in Vermont with only a few days notice. He was able to create a custom menu to suit the guest's dietary needs and even helped secure a last minute venue for us. I would recommend Daniel to anyone looking for a devoted, passionate and hugely talented chef for their next private event.
