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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

I’ve been working with Dianne for ~2 months now. We’ve had 4 sessions and I’m looking forward to many more! I worked with Dianne to increase my cooking repertoire, improve my skills, and learn how to meal plan. And in just our 4 sessions, I’m happy to say I’ve met those initial goals and I’m already setting new ones. I would, and am, highly recommending Dianne to anybody who is looking to learn some new skills in the kitchen. Dianne is friendly, informative, and encouraging throughout the whole process. Sessions last anywhere from 2-4 hours and we typically make ~3 full meals. Dianne is an incredibly well-rounded chef. We’ve made steaks, spicy chicken and lime soup, and (because she has a background in vegan cooking) even a delicious dairy-free fudge. She’s great at working with allergies and dietary restrictions. Learning how to break-down a whole chicken and properly cut an onion has made my time in the kitchen a lot more fun and plenty less stressful. If you hire Dianne in any capacity, you won’t regret it!

I was fortunate to experience a Thanksgiving Dinner that Alex prepared for a small group of friends. The pumpkin pie and homemade whipped cream were out of this world. The pie was the most delicious pumpkin pie that I have ever tasted. Not to mention, the stuffing, the jalapeño creamed corn and the mac n cheese (just to name of few of the dishes that she served). After my Thanksgiving experience, I hired Alex to cook a dinner for 4 people on a Saturday night. She prepared a steak dinner with a miso butter sauce, roasted sweet potato wedges and sautéed bok choy. The steak was cooked perfectly medium rare and the miso butter sauce melted in your mouth. My steak standards are pretty high and I might even go so far as to say I enjoyed it more than going to the Palm. Alex's cooking is a delightful experience and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for home dinner party chef or preparing pre-cooked meals for the week. Even Alex's homemade tomato soup and grilled cheese are delectable. The range of her capabilities is infinite.

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.

Working with Chef Jackie was amazing. She was very responsive to all our requests, and came up with great menu ideas that we were excited about. At the cooking class, she was organized, clear, and friendly. She made the cooking feel very low-pressure and fun, while giving us really valuable information and cooking tips. We loved everything we made, and felt really well-prepared to recreate the recipes at home. It was a fantastic experience.

JP and his team were fantastic and we look forward to working with him again. He catered an event for 120 guests the night before our wedding so it was pretty important to us that it went right! The food was delicious, we still have friends telling us how much they loved it. He really goes above and beyond to ensure a good experience and provided us with many more dishes than we had anticipated. I would absolutely recommend him.

We had an amazing meal with Johnny!!! He is unbelievably accommodating and creative. My wife if gluten free and loves lobster, while I love steak - so he did lobster 4 ways and cooked a ribeye for me. Each of the lobster dishes was amazing with flavors that were classic but also each with its own creative twist. We were always surprised and delighted. We couldn't recommend Johnny more.
