My company hired Ellen to prepare a breakfast spread for a client meeting we were having last week, 20 people total. Ellen was fantastic, she went above and beyond our expectations and the food she served was delicious. Everyone was very happy with how it turned out, we would absolutely recommend Ellen for any personal chef needs!
My husband gave me a great 50th birthday party gift of a personal chef to have a summer evening handled by Chuck with 9 of my friends. The food was fantastic, presented well and my friends raved! What I loved most was how easy Chuck was to work with and how accommodating he was. On time, prepared and best part was my kitchen and home were left in tip top shape. We were so happy- Chuck and his wife Maria were attentive yet unobtrusive at the same time. I absolutely loved my evening and would have Chuck come back for more parties!
I hired Chris to prepare a 3 course meal plus passed apps and dessert for an intimate gathering in my home this past weekend. This was my first time hiring a chef for a personal event and it couldn't have gone better. Chris is professional, yet engaging and the food was fresh and delicious. The experience was further enhanced by the personalized service and wine pairing suggestions provided by Roman. Chris brought everything he needed with him and you could eat off the floor by the time he left. Chris and Roman also worked wonders my meager dinnerware and serving utensil options (note to self to fix that for future parties). As a special touch, Chris even whipped up some homemade mac and cheese for our younger guests. I will absolutely hire Chris and again and if you are smart - you will too.
Charly prepared an excellent dinner!! He is a very nice personable person and a great chef. We are going to have him back again. If you are interested in a personal chef and have a taste for cuisine from southern France Charly is your man.
Tamara is simply AMAZING! She is not only an extremely capable and very talented chef, but is also a consummate professional. She knew exactly the type of food that would lend itself to our organization and the event. We had nothing to worry about. Tamara catered a 300 person event for us and people are still raving about her delicious and creative food items. She is a joy to work with and helped make our Benefit an incredible success. Thank you Tamara!
From planning the menu to executing the dinner and service, Chef Daniel was very accommodating and professional. His chef services were exactly what I was looking for to add a special touch to my sister's bachelorette weekend. My guests and I continue to rave about the food!
Amazing meal and easy to work with. I have hired many chefs but Aless was one of the best. All my guests were impressed.
Working with Chef Martin was wonderful! Finding him was our first foray into Thumbtack - and it turned out marvelously! Having read the MANY 5-star reviews for Chef Martin/Mirabell Catering we were dubious... could he be THAT good? The answer is a resounding yes! We needed a caterer for an entirely gluten-free 4-hour open house for roughly 70 people - kids and adults. Chef Martin was swift in his response to our request for a caterer. He articulated a clear understanding of the menu needs, and how to avoid cross contamination - a BIG deal when you have celiac disease and have to live gluten free. He developed a menu offering a wide array of finger foods at a very reasonable price. By phone, we found him to be a gentleman - a rarity these days. He was professional and organized, calm and cool, affable and charming. (I had a feeling that our friends would want to hang out in the kitchen with Chef Martin and I was right!) Chef Martin arrived promptly and brought everything he needed. As he settled in - even putting us at ease as we hurried to finish readying for our guests - his waitstaff person arrived. From there, Chef Martin turned out hours of incredibly tasty, plentiful, finger food for a large and hungry crowd. Truly, everyone raved about the food throughout the party and after. And Chef Martin WAS as charming in person as he had been by phone. The kitchen was packed! Now here is the totally unexpected thing that happened with Chef Martin: whenever I walked through the kitchen in need of something, before I could say much of anything at all, it would be taken care of or I'd find what I had come in search of in my hand. Chef Martin knows events! His presence just made everything easier. I hope we will have the pleasure of working with him again. My husband and I are proud to say that we have held some great parties, but we enjoyed this party in our home more than any other. It was delightful to spend time with our guests - and to eat! It was a joy to not worry about the cooking or having to hustle about cleaning up throughout or face a terrible mess after. Chef Martin and his gracious and professional staff made our holiday open house easy for us, and a marvelously memorable event for our guests. If you need a personal chef/ caterer, Chef Martin is the man you want.
Just paid a deposit to book Melissa for my event next weekend. Yay!!!!!! This is the 1st time I have hired a professional chef to cater for our monthly dinner party and had a lot of questions and concerns before going into it. Melissa has been extremely prompt, professional and patient in addressing all of my issues and I am really looking forward to working with her. I am confident my event will be a great success and I will be sure to post some more reviews/photos thereafter.
Alana is an outstanding Chef, she is professional, committed and passionate. She created an amazing buffet-cocktail menu for our event. We recommend her as she is one of the best chef in town.
EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME! I was celebrating my 10 year wedding anniversary and I wanted to surprise my wife with a private chef. I have a hard time keeping a secret from my wife but everything worked out perfectly. Chef Gregory was prompt and the food was delicious. The presentation of his food was off the chart! He prepared my favorite dish and my wife's favorite dish. The portions were great and we had enough for the next day to enjoy. I definitely look forward to hiring him again.
Peter is not only a very talented chef, but also a lovely man and a pleasure to be around. Peter has prepared meals for myself and my family regularly over the last year and has been a huge success with us all. I unreservedly recommend anyone to try Peter's excellent work. You will be extremely happy. :)
Melissa was great. We had an in-depth conversation up front about our dietary restrictions including a shellfish allergy, a gluten sensitivity, and a dairy sensitivity within our party. Overall, we were aiming for a vegan meal. She worked with us and gave us multiple suggestions on dinner options based on our likes and dislikes. She even came by the house to provide samples of her dishes before the event. The night of the event, she did a great job executing appetizers, dinner, and dessert. The food was delicious and she left our kitchen in better shape than she found. I highly recommend Melissa as your next personal chef!
WHEN PRESIDENT CLINTON CAME TO OUR HOUSE, WE CALLED DEIRDRE! We are repeat clients of D'Lish, which I think speaks to our continued enjoyment of the wonderful job that Deirdre and her team consistently do. At the center, the food is always that star of the show - but of equal importance is the level of service that surrounds the delivery of the food. Deirdre works with you on every detail - from menu selection, help with wines, service staff and bartenders - and manages to take the stress out of a party or event and lets you enjoy the guests. When we learned that President Bill Clinton would be coming to our house for a fund raiser - and only had 8 days to organize the food, drinks and service for an event with 75 people - Deirdre was our first call. We knew that we could rely on her delivering a knock-out event, which she did. But so much more than that, she went above and beyond and assisted with so many of the details and logistics of the event that I don't think we could have pulled off without her. I highly recommend Deirdre and her team at D'Lish.
Dena catered our engagement party and let me just tell you no one was disappointed! She was very flexible to work with as far as the menu went and was able to create my culinary vision for the event. She was also able to provide a nice selection for the children as well (which was also delicious- Mac n cheese!!) Overall I would definitely work with Dena again to cater another one of our events and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
JP catered a party for us of about 40 adults and 20 kids and we had a great experience working with him - highly recommend his services! He was responsive and flexible during the planning phase, able to modify his gameplan day-of when our rooftop venue got rained out :( and prepped and served the food efficiently, beautifully and notably, without needing anything from us as hosts, letting us truly enjoy the party. On top of all that, all the guests loved the food itself and several have inquired about contacting JP for their own events. I’m happy to make those connections because JP is truly a great chef and a consummate professional!
We had a casual get-together and chef Meade is a good meal with some attention to training. We have a delightful birthday affair.
Brendan has created many meals for me and my guests over the years. Each one has been delicious and specially catered to the needs (both dietary and taste preference) of the event and the guests attending. His dishes are scrumptious and constantly surprising and inventive. From small gatherings to bigger affairs, Brendan is my go to personal chef when I need to impress. 5 stars!
Amazing chef & delicious food! Can't go wrong hiring her. :)
Matt was an amazing Chef Instructor for my daughter's 7th birthday! Matt was on time, professional, and a lot of fun! He has a real talent for working with kids and dealing with adults. Matt made himself right at home in my kitchen and was a pleasure to engage with. Most importantly he was able to keep a group of 6, 7 year olds completely engaged and happy. I heard him answering their questions like, "how old are you" and other age appropriate questions with a great sense of humor. Matt taught the girls to make pasta from scratch and then helped them to put it through the pasta maker and finally to enjoy the meal they created with two homemade sauces he put together at the same time! If you are looking for a great learning experience for kids, or adults, I highly recommend Matt!
Having the team at Be My Guest prepare and deliver our meals for us each week has been nothing but a pleasure. We used to have to go to the grocery store on the weekends (at the busiest times, it seemed), spend our time and money where we didn't want to, and somehow still have wasted food at the end of the week. Chef Manzo knows the perfect blend of taste and keeping with a clean-eating diet, and using Be My Guest has allowed our busy weeks to become less hectic. I would recommend Be My Guest to anyone who is looking for an alternative option to going grocery shopping every week, or is tired of having to prepare lunches/dinners every day!
