I was delighted with Ben's responsiveness, his knowledge of food and his willingness to execute my requests. He is a very fine chef. He and his team delivered what one guest of mine said " was the best dinner I've been to in Reno! " From start to finish he and his team did a great job.Not only will I use CoCoMoe's again but I know several of my guests are planning to hire CoCoMores for events they are planning! It's the ultimate compliment.

I worked with Ben at CoCoMoe’s on a large dinner for the Sierra to the Sea Tour that had to eventually be cancelled because of Covid-19. He was amazingly responsive, helping us secure a venue in Lake Tahoe and, when we had to cancel, quickly working with us to refund as much as he could of our deposit. I was very impressed and would gladly work with him on future events.

CoCoMoes catering was extremely professional, responsive, but most of all, extremely delicious. We had them come to our rental house for my bachelor party, and they made a delicious multicourse meal for 12 people. They were flexible on menu (due to taste and dietary preferences) and were able to customize something that nailed it. Every single one of my bachelor party attendees kept spoking highly of the food for days. They even had to make a last minute dessert change, but the swapped in item ended up being better than I expected even the initial item to be. Will definitely use them again the next time we get a catered meal in the South Lake Tahoe area. The meal was all vegan as well, so look no further if you have this type of dietary restriction (though I'm sure their non-vegan food is just as amazing).

Ben and Greg were AMAZING...they were early, they worked with our party from planning to cleanup. If I'm ever in the area again, I'm going back to CoCoMoes Q. The food was amazing. I hope they felt the love from our group as everyone is still raving about the dinner 2 days later. This is now the Gold Standard for Private Chefs for me.

We were thrilled with Cocomoes!! We had Maurice over to our rental home to cook for our brother in law's birthday dinner (10 people total) and it couldn't have been better. The food was outstanding and the over all service couldn't have been better. They were completely on top of everything! They came in and had everything already prepared, served the delicious 4 course meal, cleaned up beautiful and were out before we knew it. They even packaged up each person's plate who couldn't finish, wrote names on them, and left them for us to eat the next day. Maurice is extremely easy to work with and his communication was outstanding. He is very spirited at what he does and takes intense pride in providing a memorable experience no matter what. He is so dedicated to his profession that a bad experience just doesn't seem like it's even possible. Maurice and his sous-chef complimented each other perfectly and we couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. Highly recommend Cocomoes and can't thank them enough for such an incredible experience! We have been talking about that evening ever since! Thank you so much!!!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My standard pricing is to beat any and all quotes, and to provide a better menu, service, food and experience!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Of course providing references and answering any and all questions that they may have about their event is a must, but we also can customize our clients menu to fit their budget. Because of our efficiency and consistency we can offer the best price for the best food and service in Northern Nevada. Our personality and drive to be successful for our clients gives them the security to know that they have hired the best caterer/Chef for their special event.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have over 30 years of cooking experience, I am a Certified Food Protection Manager, Certified Dietary Manager, and very very soon Certified Executive Chef.
