Ellen catered our Christmas Eve dinner. She did appetizers, main course and dessert. Everyone was very please with the meal. When speaking to her I was a little nervous because she seemed overwhelmed and harried. It was Christmas time and I know she was busy, but she delivered what she promised and on time. It was the first time we had ever catered a holiday meal so we were concerned about the quality. Not to worry, Ellen provided a delicious meal and we did not have the prep and clean up so really enjoyed time with our family. Thanks Ellen!

Chuck and Marie arrived at our In-Laws home introducing themselves to all and promtly began preparing a 3 course amazing meal for the 4 of us. The odeovers were fantastic. We are a fairly social family. Therefore Chuck an Marie answered all our curious questions about the wonderful food Chuck was meticulously preparing. Chuck took great care in presenting each course with a spot on description of each dish. Conversation between all of us was easy and fluent. We really enjoyed Chuck and Marie and appreciated the gifts they have been given to have prepared a very special meal to celebrate my mother-in-laws Birthday. We will be getting the word out to promote the fabulous service Chuck and Marie offer. We would hire them for any special occasion in the future. Thanks Chuck and Marie!!!

Charly cooked a three course meal for 15 people. Great. Love the soup (tomato soup with black truffle) and prosciutto salad was phenomenal and salmon with vegetables was very good.

Tamara did an amazing job at our co-ed baby shower. We live in a NY apartment and so Tamara had to prepare in a NY-sized kitchen. The preparation and delivery was flawless and the food was delicious. At the end, she cleaned up within a half hour and left the kitchen spotless. Tamara makes sure you have zero stress when it comes to the food (and drinks if you choose!).

Chef Dan was easy to work with and prepared an incredible three course meal for 10 people. Chef Dan dealt with all special dietary requests with ease, and brought in a mixologist to help with cocktails and wine pairings. Chef Dan was an integral part of the success of the night, and we would recommend him without reservation.

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.

Melissa genuinely cared about our experience, and it was a pleasure to collaborate with her to plan the menu. The food was delicious, varied and healthy, and each of the five meals was meal was unique, with many options for the various diets in the group. It’s also worth noting that she left the kitchen very clean, and she helped keep us organized for the week. Thank you Melissa!

Chef Stenneth Grant was amazing. I asked for an Italian meal, and he made some great suggestions to add some flare to courses for our meal. Everything had his own spin on it, but it really worked amazingly! I've never had an Italian meal like this, and will have a hard time finding it again in any restaurant. He was an absolute pro. He came in time, went right to work with all his our cooking tools and treated us with amazing service. From early drinks (he made us some amazing rum punch), antipasto, appetizers, salad, pasta and filet steak. Oh and also desert! It was all amazing, nice portions and every bite was delicious. He also cleaned up the kitchen and washed out plates, all before we finished desert. You wouldn't have known anyone had cooked in the kitchen. Thank you Chef Stenneth!

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!

I hired Greg Evans and Kulinary Kings to cater a dinner party for 9. Because it was the first Friday in Lent, Greg needed to prepare meat and fish dishes. He prepared sumptuous shrimp skewers, chicken kabobs, mahi-mahi, wild rice and asparagus. It was not only delicious, but the portions were so generous I could have easily fed twice as many people. The food was delivered on time and perfectly prepared. Greg is a personable, flexible chef that was easy to work with in planning the meal. His delicious and creatively prepared food received rave reviews from all of my guests. I will definitely hire him again and highly recommend Kulinary Kings.

This is will be my second time using FIG for a catered dinner at my home. On the previous occasion FIG delivered a tremendous five course meal. Not only was the food amazing, but they tailored a menu that was specific to my tastes, incorporating unique flavors and fresh ingredients. The wine was perfectly paired for each course and I could not have been happier with the service. Overall, myself and my guests had a wonderful evening and the best part was I didn't have to do a thing. I will definitely using FIG again this fall and also for the holiday season.

Jennifer was prompt in her response to my inquiry about a holiday meal/cooking class, creative in coming up with solutions to meet our family member's dietary constraints, and very easy to work with in planning the menu. Her prices are very reasonable! The food was very good and we had fun watching and helping a bit with the preparation. We would recommend her.

John Paul was an excellent caterer for my daughter’s outdoor college graduation party. I contracted him only 7 days before the event and he suggested a lovely, light summer menu that my guests thoroughly enjoyed. The food was prepared with love, had a great presentation and was delicious. We had an abundant amount of food that was kept warm and fresh throughout the evening. John Paul was kind, prompt and extremely professional as were his staff of two. I highly recommend John Paul and wish him all the best in his future endeavors. Ps. I will hire him again!

Chef Jeffrey prepared a multi-course delicious Thanksgiving meal for 8 people at my home. Every meal item was well thought out and executed. The mashed potatoes were the most amazing I have ever tasted. He brought thoughtful appetizers, prepared amazing food and was courteous and professional. I would hands-down recommend him for any ever.

I contacted Jaggi to help me with ongoing meal prep on a weekly basis. She delivered packaged meals to my door and they were absolutely delicious and healthy! I was looking to change my diet habits and eat less fat-I was looking to get toned and lose weight but my overall goal was to live a healthier lifestyle. Jaggi was very patient and personable over the phone and in person- she came up with a customized menu for me and we emailed back and forth until I was satisfied with my weekly menu. The meals are super convenient because they come in plastic containers that I pop in the microwave while at work and at home. I have been using Jaggi's meal prep for one month and am already feeling more energy and feeling more toned! Highly recommend!!!!

After vetting several chefs, I knew once I spoke to Germaine that she was the one I would hire. Her positive energy, patience, and level of professionalism were amazing. She held a private tasting for my husband and I at her home and it was clear how much time she put into not just preparing a great meal, but the overall presentation. Needless to stay my event was amazing, the food was delicious as was the service. I would highly recommend Germaine and will most certainly be hiring her again for any of my future events!
