We had the most amazing meal by Chef Gerard - he came to our AirBnB early and on time, cooked an amazing 4 course meal with seasonal ingredients. They brought our appetizers out to us where we were having cocktails outside, then plated all the meals beautifully. He also used local ingredients and breads, described the process and where things were sourced from. He was excellent in the timeliness of the meal, the meal itself, and the cleanup process. Was very responsive in the weeks leading up to our event in terms of creating the menu. Excellent value compared to the other options we had! Will absolutely be reaching out to him again and referring him to anyone who needs a private chef experience.

Details: Brunch / dinner party • 6 - 10 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • Italian • American - formal • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

Chef Gerard prepared a meal for 16 people and the entire experience was top-notch. The food was delicious - several of the attendees remarked on how good it was. I was also impressed by the quality of the service - he and his server did everything, including cleanup. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a private chef for a special event!

Chef Gerard was an absolute delight. We hired him to cook a special dinner for my sisters bachelorette weekend and the whole evening was memorable, not least due to the absolutely superb food. From the initial contact, I let chef Gerard know that this was a big outside of my experience, and he guided me to choose styles of foods and menu items to fit a theme of ‘street food tapas.’ On the evening of the event he arrived at 5 on the dot with his sous chef Ellie and they got to work whipping up amazing dishes including perfectly cooked shrimp al ajillo, Thai spring rolls, tacos, three unique salads and the best gluten free apple crisp I have ever had. There were so many special sauces that elevated the food to next level good. They left the kitchen sparkling clean and disappeared into the night. We will never forget this special evening.

Details: Shower (baby, bridal, etc.) • 11 - 20 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • American - casual • Mediterranean / Middle Eastern • French • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • The personal chef travels to me

FANTASTIC! I hired Cultivated Tastes to cater my birthday party for approximately 20 people at my house and both Chef Gerry and Kendall exceeded our expectations in every way! I started planning the event with Cultivated Tastes a few months prior to the event and they were very helpful with food suggestions and other ideas to make sure this party was going to be a success - and it was!! Chef Gerry and Kendall were very professional and friendly. The quality of food and service was definitely 5 STAR!! We decided on having passed hors d'oeuvres and stationed platters. The food was beyond delicious and all my guests and I raved about every dish!! I absolutely loved having Chef Gerry and Kendall cater my party and I will definitely be hiring them again. Thank you Cultivated Tastes!!!

Hired Cultivated Tastes (Gerry & Kendall Herrfurth) twice, once for our son's baby shower and once for his baptism. They were absolutely outstanding. Service was professional, on time and all around top notch. They catered both stationary and passed hordourves, in our home, along with creative and very tasty speciality drinks. Communication before each event was also fantastic. Of course, the food was out-of-this world amazing. All of the guests commented on what wonderful events we've had at our home - due in no small part to Gerry and Kendall. I would and will hire them again.
