For our 10 year anniversary, my husband called on Chef Tony to make it a night we would cherish forever. He asked Chef Tony to recreate the 5-course meal we had the night of our wedding. The entire evening was absolutely incredible as we reminisced in the comfort of our own home as Chef Tony diligently and expertly prepared each course. The broccoli and cheese soup was the best we had ever eaten, followed by a delicious Asian salad. He even included the mango sorbet before bringing out the main course - a beautiful plate with three small portions of the meals offered the night of our wedding: Chicken Francaise, Shrimp Stuffed with Crab Meat, and Prime Rib with au jus - each perfectly cooked. We were so full, but just kept eating because it was so delicious! Just when we thought we were finished, he brought out a plate of assorted desserts for us to share. Chef Tony even made enough to have leftovers, which were just as amazing the second time around! Chef Tony cooked us one of the best meals we have ever eaten, and we could not be more grateful for his expertise and attention to detail in preparing such a special meal. We will definitely be calling him again!

Chef Anton was great to work with for our retirement luncheon. He was responsive, professional, flexible, on-time and exceeded all of our expectations. We had Chef Anton caterer a 35 person office luncheon. The spread included mixed greens salad, cheese steak egg rolls, dumplings, pork loin, chicken parm, spinach and potatoes. We also received cannoliis. Chef Anton showed up early, setup everything and the food was great. Everyone in the office thanked me for setting up such a nice event, but I need to thank Chef Anton! All of the food was very good, but the cheese steak eggs rolls were amazing, chicken parm delicious and the salad even received a lot of praise. Thanks Chef Anton and we will look to you for future retirement luncheons and other events!

Jim and his staff prepared and served the food for our 50 anniversary garden party. Jim prepared much of the food in our garden and every morsel he served was both usual and delicious. Jim listened to our suggestions and then improved on them with multiple tapas, a gigantic skillet of paella, homemade ice cream, and pastries. He had previously served our family a plated sit down dinner that was equally delicious. Jim is not one of those tense, temperamental chefs. He made both evenings seem effortless and his congenial personality even added to the festivities. When he left, the kitchen was immaculate.

We hired Sodiah Thomas and her crew to cater our wedding this past summer, and they truly surpassed our expectations with respect to food quality, duties performed, and overall value. From the start, Sodiah was easy to work with. She responded to my Thumbtack request promptly with a generous offering that was within our budget. Over the following weeks, Sodiah was always in contact as we finalized our tasting menu and as soon we tasted the appetizers, we were sold. We wanted our wedding dinner to reflect not only our personalities but also the joining of our cultures (Asian-American and American), and Sodiah and the talented Chef Tristan made this happen with their eagerness and food creativity. On our wedding day, the dishes tasted just as good or even better than during our tasting, which is always a concern with scale-up. Our guests thought the food was delicious! And the best part… when the evening was over, I turned around, and Sodiah and her crew had already cleaned everything (without me having to ask), packed everything, and left us with little to do but to enjoy the rest of the evening! I’m a big fan of people who are passionate about what they do, who work hard and exceed expectations. S&B Catering did just that, and hiring them was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Thank you, Sodiah, Tristan, and the rest of the S&B family!

John prepared a wonderful lunch for a birthday party at my home. The ingredients were fresh and expertly prepared. My guests raved about the quality of the food. The biggest "win" was the Caprese Pasta Salad - Delicious. I would highly recommend using J Wicks LLC for any event and look forward to using them again in the future.

When I met with Chef John for a contract signing he was very professional and accommodating to my very specific needs and wants. While creating the menu and going over it chef John catered to some foods I really wanted to include Because of my ethnic background. He was very accepting to looking into these dishes recreating them in his own way but still keeping their authentic taste for the dinner.

Chef Guidry of Twice the Spice Caterer food was delicious! She delivered personal chef service for a special birthday dinner party. The food was very fresh and high grade/quality. The menu items were well balanced and included an appetizer, several different entrees, and desert. Stephanie even brought drink mixers and adjusted the menu to everyone’s liking, taste, and dietary. Chef’s professionalism extended throughout her cooking and presentation. She was even able to accommodate a few unexpected guests. The food was well prepared, finely seasoned to perfection, absolutely picture perfect and enjoyably delicious! She definitely brought a fine dining restaurant experience to our home handling the shopping, cooking, serving and cleanup. We will definitely utilize Chef Guidry of Twice the Spice Caterer again! Many Thanks, Meek

My husband and I requested Chef Shadee because we wanted to celebrate our 10 yr wedding anniversary but without a big fuss but more than a typical dinner and a movie . My first time using a service such as this so we were a bit skeptical of the unknown. We were so impressed by the Chef's attention to detail with his set up and cleanlinesss. Not only did he arrive early but maintained extreme professionalism while allowing me to bombard him with tons of questions lol. The Chef's knowledge on all things culinary showed his passion for the craft , therefore we knew we were in for quality service. We were able to communicate consistently after booking which allowed for the Chef to execute our vision. With the in home intimate setting and the service by the Chef we felt like Hollywood celebrities!! The presentation was awesome and the food was superb,everything flavored well and cooked to perfection. This was well worth the price and one of the best ways we celebrated our anniversary in 10 years. I am currently looking for something to host just to invite Chef Shadee to cook!!!! My husband is not easily impressed, however we were both overtly satisfied with the service we received. #hatsofftothechef

Chef Doug has cooked for me on several occasions. He has a wealth of food knowledge and experience. He is timely, tidy, and professional. Pictured below is a salad with pickled strawberries, grilled chicken, dandelion greens, Gorgonzola, strawberry vinegarette. The other is monkfish on rice with a side of sea beans and accented with lemon zest.
