"This was the best food!" EVERYONE Ellen catered to for our dinner last evening could not get over how delicious their meals were. There are not enough words of gratitude I can share with her or any of you who are considering to hire her for your event. Ellen is concise when reaching out with her menus, her menus are organized by cuisine (making it easy to discuss), her response time is excellent, there are no hidden last minute charges, she shows up at the agreed time, is able to work in a challenging kitchen (we are in an office with a no flame policy and she made do with sternos), her food presentation is attractive and appetizing, and she is an absolute gem to work with. I have been in the food and beverage industry for 20 years, worked with many many chefs and Ellen is the real deal. Our group was falling behind and dinner service was delayed by close to 45 minutes. She made sure the main courses were still hot and of the best integrity, which is difficult to do when serving poultry and fish. Everything was seasoned beautifully with a variety of flavors with each course. Truly, the whole experience was magical and I can't wait to work with her again. Thank you so much Ellen!

Charly did a wonderful job on short notice. He was prompt, very personable, and made us a delicious meal that felt more authentic than any restaurant. You take for granted eating in restaurants where you can see the food being prepared or speak with the chef. When Charly described the dish, ingredients, and how he prepared the meal I felt much more connected to what I was enjoying and I really sensed the passion Charly has for his food quality, joy of cooking, and personalized customer service. Highly recommend!

Chef Chris was super responsive which allowed us to get straight to business! After our brief telephone conversation, he immediately drafted my personal menu with the exact items I wanted! My spouse and I are really looking forward to meeting him on our scheduled upcoming date.

Tamara and her Amoraco team were truly exceptional. Before the event, Tamara was responsive, readily accepting our preferences and changes to the menu she proposed and very reasonable in her pricing. She, Tara and Jean arrived as scheduled one hour before the party and needed minimal guidance before taking over the kitchen and starting to prepare the food. They worked diligently, professionally and with a beaming smile throughout the four hours we had hired them for. The food was inventive and delicious, presented beautifully and in a timely fashion. When two of our guests spilled their drinks on the carpet, the quickly cleaned up the mess even though that was not easy. When they left, the kitchen was in an impeccable condition and our apartment looked as if the party had never taken place. We tip our hat (and so did our guests) to this great team, which offered excellent food, superior service and a worry-free event to the hosts.

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.

Erika's versatility is fantastic, ranging from classic gourmet meals, to special diets, to everyday healthy, home-cooked meals. We had the luxury of hiring her for two weeks to cook daily meals for our family while teaching our three teenage boys basic skills in the kitchen. They loved it! She also prepared a scrumptious menu and cooked for our large Christmas celebration with extended family. We cannot sing her praises enough and will be hiring Erika again for future parties and daily meals for our family.

Chef Aless recently catered a high-school graduation party at our home in northern NJ. We had about 50 friends and family at the event and it was absolutely perfect! Chef Aless took my very basic idea for the event and developed it into a creative and delicious-sounding menu. She also came up with a great cocktail (Pimms & Elderflower) to complement to meal! Chef Aless took care of everything – she came early, set up, prepared the meal, served it and cleaned up afterwards. My family and I were totally free to enjoy ourselves, our guests, and the wonderful food Chef Aless prepared. All my guests commented on how excellent the food was and how beautifully it was presented. We wanted this party to be a very special event and Chef Aless ensured it was! Thanks, Aless!

If you’re a perfectionist that wants to have everything the top of the line and elegant at your party Sunflowers Catering and Event Planning is for you. Laura's attention to detail and honoring your special requests is impeccable. Laura can cook anything from appetizer finger foods to Elaborate Meals including Vegan and gluten free. Everything she prepared for my party was compliment by all my guests. The braised short ribs melted in our mouths, the Mediterranean Pasta got rave reviews, and the mini cheese burgers we so delicious you had to have three or four. I can't forget to mention that her desserts are decadent. My person favorite was her honey custard in a homemade pecan filo cups, it’s truly out of this world. Great food, friendly attentive support staff and just amazing to work with so I could enjoy my company worry free.

I would highly recommend Chef Stenneth. In addition to a great meal, he was very attentive and made sure everyone had the right meal (some people had some major dietary restrictions in my party of 5). I asked for some special wine as well and he delivered as promised. He is a true professional, and deserves all the stars available.

Our baby was born and we were totally overwhelmed, either not eating or ordering in unhealthy food. Melissa, came to our home once a week and set us up with the easiest and most delicious meals. They were healthy and she easily fit into the strictly Kosher kitchen that we have. To our surprise, she knew all the rules and was so wonderful to have around! She's a star and we wish we could have her every day but she is understandably in high demand!

Ms. Puentes did a spectacular job for our film's craft services this past August. The food was exceptional - she provided 3 options for each meal, with a vegetarian option as one of them. Each day the cuisine was different and coordinated throughout the meals. Our favorite was the Italian day!! She delivered on time and within budget. I would hire Ms. Puentes again for all my film shoots' craft services needs.

Miracle Catering catered my first Thanksgiving dinner in our new home. Ron and his staff really pulled out all the stops! He was great with making menu modifications and accommodated all of our allergy concerns with no issues. He prepared a feast for us! The food was terrific - everyone was raving about how great everything was. We'll definitely reach out to Ron and Miracle Catering for our next event!!

From beginning to end, Claudia went above and beyond to ensure our wedding experience was amazing. Our first interaction with Claudia was a wonderful meal she prepared for the two of us; Salmon and Coq au vin. The food was absolutely perfect, however it was Claudia’s personality that won us over. From day one Claudia worked hard to ensure we had everything we would need for our wedding to go smoothly. She sat down with us and went through the wedding from start to finish and took extensive notes on where things would be placed at the venue (we had a lot of DIY items) so her team could set them up with ease. She also met with us at the equipment rental place, and made sure we rented everything we would need. Had she not been there we would have missed many, many items! She also ordered beverages for us through a separate vendor, from whom we received a nice discount! On the day before the wedding Claudia managed a problem with our equipment delivery for us while we were out at our rehearsal lunch - we didn’t even have to call them! Food: The food was just wonderful. The presentation, quality and preparation was like no other. Claudia was professionally trained and her food was fantastic. The appetizers during cocktail hour were passed on long trays that looked very classy. They were petit, well put together and tasted amazing. For dinner we had a great salad, which was wrapped in thinly cut cucumber slices. Very impressive. The next course was pasta, which stunned many guests. Finally, we had a choice of coq au vin, steak or a vegetarian option. We are food addicts and have very high standards and this food not only met but exceeded our expectations. Service: Like we were saying earlier, Claudia was a lot more than a caterer; she was like our wedding planner! She made sure the day went smoothly and worked with us ahead of time to determine where things would end up in the venue, the logistics of setting up, what we would need for her staff to set them up and she helped us plan for rain. Her staff were very professional and worked hard to keep the night running smoothly. Overall impression: We can’t go on enough about how satisfied we are with Claudia’s work. She really cares about her clients and went above and beyond to ensure our happiness on our special day. Thanks so much Claudia! We hope to work with you again in the future!!
