Chef Germaine and her team were absolutely amazing! They made my 40th birthday celebration an incredible experience! The "Peruvian flare" food was fantastic and everyone were all smiles while eating. I really appreciated that she was able to pull off this event during these trying covid times. She made sure everything came out delicious and added beautiful touches to the food table. Very professional and attentive. I highly recommend her!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 21 - 35 guests • Dinner • Cocktail hour / hors d'oeuvres • Premium (high end ingredients) • Italian • Mediterranean / Middle Eastern • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

I had a 50th birthday party for my wife and Chef Batiste was wonderful to deal with through the whole experience. From helping with a theme, creating a menu, providing the decorations and planning the event she made everything easy. The event itself was fantastic and exceeded my expectations!

If I could give more than 10 stars I would! I asked chef to come help me celebrate my husband's birthday since I got injured recently and unable to celebrate the way we normally do. She asked me a couple of questions, sent me some pictures of some ideas she had, and immediately I was blown away - not only by the promptness but just how well we connected over what I was trying to go for. And the day of the dinner -- she totally exceeded all expectations! Not only was the food PHENOMENAL (my husband was part of the clean plate club, every dish), but she brought a table/chairs, set up the table decor, arranged the CAKE (omg), service, did everything. She is also so much fun to talk to, has such a wonderful personality, and has some pretty great stories. I will recommended her 10 times over and will of course have her come for all of our future events. Thank you Chef!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 2 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • American - formal • Southern • Mexican / Latin American • Mediterranean / Middle Eastern • Asian • French • Barbecue • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

Chef Germaine catered my 35 person holiday party at my apartment. I have been engaging caterers around the world for 30 plus years, and Chef Germaine is absolutely in my top 3.... very responsive, highly flexible, innovative & delicious food, and a wonderful, positive manner. My party crowd were senior business figures, so a tough crowd to please & impress. Chef Germaine did both!...

Details: Holiday party • Cocktail hour or hors d'oeuvres • American - casual • Small bites • Yes, full service • Home • Yes, full kitchen • 20 - 29 guests • Plates, utensils and glasses • Cloth napkins • Serving and warming equipment • Table décor • Premium (high end ingredients)
