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!

Charly was great! The food was equally as great! We made a minor (more like major) mistake or requesting Charly for a dinner for 4 people, where we actually needed it for 6! When Charly came over to start preparing, we realized we needed more food! Charly was quick to figure out how to make the courses work out with the food he already brought - he says he always comes prepared with extras! He even had extra menus, so that also worked out! He was also a good sport about stepping out with us on a quick supermarket trip and buy some extra main courses :-). All-in-all, we were impressed by his patience and preparedness even before he started cooking. As for the cooking, he prepared an amazing meal and his presentation of food is incredible! Like going to a Michelin restaurant at home. Hands down the best Chocolate lava cake we've ever had!!! Thanks Charly!!

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.

My husband gave to me one 3-hours-class with Erika! More than a cooking class, I had the opportunity to talk and share ideas with someone that knows a lot about healthy food! That was great and exactly what I was looking for! During the class, I was able to raise all my doubts! Of course we prepared delicious recipes, but more important than this Erika shared all her knowledge! She gave me new ideas to improve my cooking and to prepare better (and delicious) food! Thank you, Erika! It was an amazing experience!

Whether you are having a small get together for a few or a large gathering, be rest assured that your event will be amazing! Chef Michel is extremely professional, respectful, and friendly! He catered 2 events for our family and we were very pleased with both. The first was a party of nearly 100 people celebrating our son’s college graduation and daughter’s high school graduation. Our second event was a last minute post Thanksgiving weekend family get together for 12-15 people. Everything from the planning, to taste testing, and delivery was on point. Aside from the food being beyond mouth watering delicious, he coordinated with outside vendors to provide everything we needed to make the graduation event beautiful. He also provided on site chefs and wait staff, all of which were professional and attentive to details. They were flexible in their assigned roles and remained past the scheduled time to attend to our guests and clean up. Our home was left as clean as it was when they arrived! Chef Michel prides himself on delivering the best quality and freshest foods possible. Other than a few items that required pre-prep (like marinating / slow cooking...definitely try the roast pork and roast chicken) everything was prepared (cut, fried, cooked, assembled etc) on site. This truly makes a difference when you’re serving items like empanadas or tostones with avocado and shrimp (both highly recommended). Chef Michel is very creative. Whether you choose something from his printed menus, have other items in mind, or even have a special recipe that you want him to prepare...HE CAN DO IT! An important point to make about his catering style is that he is so proud of his creations that he wants everyone to be able to taste everything that he prepares. If you choose an appetizer and you have 100 people, you are not going to get 1 or 2 pieces per person or be charged by the piece, like most caterers. He will make sure you have more than enough for everyone. The same applies to your main course. We had leftovers for ourselves, even after our guests took food home. With all of this said, I truly feel that his prices are fair and reasonable! I could write more and would be more than happy to speak to anyone who has any questions, but I’ll end with...make sure you try his homemade ice creams (our favorites were coconut and pineapple), flan, and especially the sangria!

Chef Alana made our first Father’s Day a huge success! From her menu creation for our private Father’s Day BBQ to her flexibility for taking on the job despite some circumstances - Chef Alana prepared an incredible meal that tasted amazing and made sure we were taken care of throughout the evening. Her flavors and cooking techniques clearly make her an expert in her field. On top of it all, she was very easy to work with and managed dietary preferences well. Her menu was thoughtful, elevated and elegant. I couldn’t have imagined a better event!!

Chef Melissa taught a cooking class for myself and 4 friends. She was very fun and informed us on proper cutting technique. We had a lot of allergies/food restrictions and Melissa was very easy to work with regarding these. Her recipes were healthy and delicious! Our menu included Sweet Potato Fritattas, Cod w/ Mango Salsa, Baked breaded artichoke hearts and Almond Butter Cups. We had a great time and would highly recommend her!

Chef Stef is a professional Culinary Chef that teaches you step by step how to prepare different recipes. Every two weeks it's a different menu. He provides you with all the food to cook and all the utensils and dishes you need to prepare a wonderful meal. It's always a fun group and we love cooking together. His knowledge about the different products, where there from, where you can buy them and how healthy they are, is very educational. He sometimes pairs the recipes you have prepared with a tasting of different wines or beers of different regions depending on which recipe you are cooking that day. Chef Stef also provides you with containers to take whatever Recipes you have cooked home for your family and children to enjoy. I highly recommend going to Chef Stef cooking classes.

We hired Chef Gerry for an evening of a cooking lesson and eating. He set up stations with recipes that we were to follow. He helped us make pasta - a real treat! Chef Gerry was knowledgeable, informative, and the recipes were easy to follow but were challenging. It was a delicious dinner and a perfect evening thanks to our very capable Chef!

Chef Craig came to my house to cook dinner for 8 people to celebrate my mother's retirement. He sent me sample menus well in advance of the event and we chose our favorites from those menus. Chef Craig cooked to our preferences while also improvising using his creativity. He was very receptive to those of us who had dietary restrictions (vegetarian, food allergies), and adjusted the courses accordingly. He was easy to work with and the food was fantastic! He and his server left the kitchen spotless and they were both fun to talk to. I would absolutely use him again.

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!

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.

Chef Lindsey is an amazing cook. Her food is amazing and full of flavor. I didn't know what exactly I wanted to serve my guest and she was able to devise a menu based on flavors I liked. I would describe the 3-course dinner menu as gourmet Caribbean cuisine. She also catered a brunch. Her poached eggs and homemade hollandaise sauce was divine. Yum! Yum! Anything you want she'll provide and much more.
