We hired Chef Nirva do cook for at a 25-person brunch at my home in Noho. She was super awesome about customizing the menu to our desires / needs. The food was delicious (and there was plenty of it). I would definitely hire her again.

Chris catered a dinner party at my apartment and everything was top notch. He arrived promptly, had enough time to get organized before the guests arrived, and looked very professional. The presentation of the food was as delicious as it tasted. My friend helped organize the menu and every course was more delicious than the next. I look forward to having him caterer more frequently, as well as teach cooking classes. Chris' professionalism and attentiveness was incredible. Thank you again for a wonderful evening!

We hired Erika to conduct an interactive cooking class for our daughters 16th birthday. Erika was great with the girls and they all had an amazing time - all while learning to cook and about nutrition. Erika created a menu that was teenage friendly so the girls would really enjoy the food and experience.

I have hired Chef Jackie Newgent to cater a party of mine in the past; everything she made was so fresh and delicious! All dishes were beautifully presented. I finally had time to take a private cooking class from her and was equally impressed. I now know the right way to hold a chef's knife, slice scallions on a bias and "cream" garlic. Cooking with Chef Jackie is a fun experience! I highly recommend both her personal chef work AND her private cooking lessons!

Chef Nicholas is great! He does drop-off meals for our family once a week. We keep them in the freezer & my kids eat them on the nights that I work late and don't have time to cook. His meals are healthy, delicious, and actually more affordable than ordering in!

Overall I was pleased with her service. I liked the fact that hot food was delivered. This lets me know that it was freshly cooked. In addition every guest was pleased with the service. I would definitely recommend with a 100 percent rating.

via Melissa, or "Chef Melissa" as we call her, exceeded our expectations! We took her from her usual route of healthy food and asked her to run a cooking class so that children with Celiac Disease could make and enjoy cupcakes on the morning of Super Bowl Sunday. She was really flexible and provided what felt and looked like "regular" cupcakes but modified for strict gluten-free compliance and somehow they were a little healthy too! All natural. even organic and dairy-free where possible. The ages of children who attended ranged from 4-12 and she worked really well with everyone! She set up before we (event organizers) arrived and had a friendly helper with her. They were professional but the kids related to them very well. The parents were all pleased and her rate was really reasonable! Our support group doesn't make any money from events like this, parents paid her directly and she was accepting last-minute additions without any worries. I can't think of a single negative - in fact we'd like to work with her again this year! Oh, and she even took the work of finding a location away from us (we're 2 volunteers who run this group for our children and others). Next class, we'll go a little healthier and really take advantage of ALL that via Melissa has to offer our kids! :) Oh, and she's even sending us kid-friendly, healthy and gluten-free recipes for us to share with the families in our group! She really goes above and beyond!

Outstanding hands on demonstration and lesson for my 11 year old daughters and friends. Not only did they learn to cook the meal they enjoyed, they learned proper knife skills, cutting a chicken, importance of fresh ingredients vs. store bought, sauce prep and reduction technique, homemade salad dressing, and presentation of the meal. We all enjoyed Chef's simple educational approach as well as his lively sense of humor and calm command in the kitchen! Absolutely look forward to cooking with him again as well as using his catering expertise for at home celebrations.

Do you want to know the definition of Excellence? Hire Luisa c/o De Cicco's Event Planning! I have never worked with a more professional, friendly company. Luisa has a way of catering to her client's and making them feel like they're at the top of her priority list. If you need her, drop her an E-mail and she IMMEDIATELY gets back to you. Need a personal Chef to teach you how to cook? Luisa can connect you with top of the line quality professional's that KNOW what they're doing in the kitchen. I'm currently taking lesson's from her Chef and I went from being a novice who's food was either bland, burnt and completely un-edible, to a person who can now chop, dice and make a meal so good, my family calls me asking me to cook for them again. Luisa and her staff are so friendly, so welcoming and very attentive to the needs of the client. Luisa has done a fine job in picking her staff and I’m extremely happy I hired her company because it was worth every penny.

Francis was great. He offered excellent menu choices and even worked with us to have extra side dishes our kids would like while still participating in the 'big meal'. He took care of everything from start to finish including serving us on our deck. We would recommend him to anyone and hope to have him create another meal for a future special occasion.

I have struggled with food my entire life. For me, believe it or not, I never really loved to eat, and didn’t know what to look for in a good meal. And as a woman, we take care of our skin, our hair, our bodies... but the digestive system carries all the "weight" of daily activities. After working with Chef Kiele, everything changed. She helped kickstart a deep nutritional change for me, the way I thought about food, and the way my body processed food. And the big bonus - I learned how to cook amazing meals, all on my own, without any prior cooking knowledge or experience! Her private cooking lessons felt like an awakening to the necessity of eating right, on more of a soul level. I connect with food, my body, and my health in a whole new way, that is definitely a life-long change and investment.
