"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!

My 11 year old son loves his private cooking lessons in our home with Chef Chris. Chef Chris is energetic and talented and blows my son away as they create various meals without a recipe. He’s learning knife skills, various cooking techniques, flavoring and seasoning, and plating. My son is learning so much while having so much fun. And our family gets a delicious dinner when the lesson is done!

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!

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.

I had to hire a chef to come for a small bday dinner for my boyfriend. I needed one on short notice and Nate was ready and able to make this night fantastic! He provided some wonderful options for the menu, showed up on time, and executed several dishes perfectly. He and his assistant were polished and polite. All was provided for a reasonable price. Our whole party had a wonderful time and can't wait to have him back again.

When you hire Manjar you know your event is in excellent hands! Their exquisite taste and attention to details has made our "tight budgets" into a beautiful celebration of food, decor, and specialty mocktail & cocktails. His team treats each event as if you are part of their family. Over the last 7months, I have had the pleasure of working with their event team & chefs on at least 10 events, including new product launches, corporate, wedding, and celebratory events in NJ private estates, galleries, retail environments & nyc apartments. The guests rave about the service & food. At the most recent event, my client was very demanding, last minute, with specific dietary needs... Manjar surpassed my expectations. I would recommend them for any event from a french service sit-down dinner, graduation celebration, to a summer garden cocktail party. Trust them with what you need and you will not be disappointed! Great events, all of the details attended to, and great results so you can enjoy your own event!

I hired Erika for a custom home cooking lesson as a Christmas gift for my girlfriend and she certainly lived up to the billing as a 5 star rated chef/instructor. From scheduling to preparing the menu and lesson to being exceedingly personable and helpful in our little kitchen, Erika was extremely professional and easy to work with from beginning to end. I would highly recommend Erika to anyone looking for either a personal chef or in-house cooking lesson. She is knowledgable about a wide range of food and cooking techniques, flexible with menu choices, a friendly and outgoing presence in the kitchen, and most importantly, she is a tremendous chef! We learned a ton, had a great time, and had plenty of leftovers that we enjoyed for a week afterwards.

We have a 2 year old and had friends coming in from out of town with a 1 year old and we wanted to have a restaurant quality meal at home without the hassle of getting babysitters and doing the cooking and cleaning ourselves. Chef Aless and her team delivered a dream experience at home with amazing food and impeccable service. We were able to enjoy the evening with our friends and I am pretty sure the kitchen was cleaner when they finished then when the meal preparation started. We will definitely be enlisting her services again! Highly recommend!

We had a wonderful time at our group cooking class at La Pulperia. Chef Carlos and his team were so gracious (accommodating of food allergies) and the food was delicious - empanadas, salmon tartar, guacamole and ricotta gnocchi (which we learned how to make). We enjoyed making one of their signature cocktails and sipped wine (and tequila). Thanks to Chef Carlos and everyone at La Pulperia for such a fun and unique time. Also, thanks so much to Tyler for setting everything up!

The most wonderful Christmas dinner for a family gathering of ten plus two children. Chef Laura from Sunflowers catering is an amazing culinary master. She dropped off our meal complete with heating instructions and guidelines for time and temperatures. If you are lucky enough to hire her you will not be disappointed ever!!!......we are so looking forward to her preparing a New year's eve sit down dinner for twelve this year in our home. As far as my husband and I are concerned, as well as our family, this chef is not to be missed.

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!

The chefs are most accomodating to my dietary needs all the while making me feel like I'm not missing out on the foods I love. I was served a delicious and completely Vegan Mexican inspired dip that was seasoned perfectly and was creamy and "meaty". Their food was amazing!

The food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious.They kept the buffet replenished, cleared tables, were attentive to our guests' every need and left our home and yard spotless at the end of this 5 hour event. Staff was exceptional, eficient and and we could not have asked for a more perfect day!
