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.

We had Chef Dave here for my fiancee's 60th birthday. I admit I was nervous because I had never hired a personal chef and I didn't know Dave at all, other than the reviews I read. Dave put my fears to rest by his prompt replies, his friendly, yet professional demeanor and boy was I happy that he was early. Now for the food....we loved what he prepared. The crabcakes and Mozzarella Sushi delish and the chick and salmon entrees were fab!!! I'm not even a cheesecake lover and I couldn't get enough of that graham cracker cheesecake. And Chef Dave is personable, clean and has a wonderful attitude. I highly recommend him for any type of event or party and you will not be disappointed. Thanks Dave for making our night even more special!!

I was a little nervous hiring a new person to cater my daughter's graduation party, but glad I made the right decision. The baby lamb chops were a giant hit. I received many compliments from guests on the short rib lasagna, the salmon dynamite, and the grilled vegetables. The chicken bruschetta was cooked perfectly. All of the accompaniments were made with fresh herbs and extremely flavorful. Chef Dave was easy to work with and put up with questions and concerns, answering each promptly. Most of my guests were real foodies and many asked for Dave's card. I will definitely use Chef Dave's Culinary Kitchen again.

Jo-Ann and her team were fantastic!!!! We came by her shop and had a tasting and went over the cake details with her. She wrote down everything and listened to us regarding exactly what we wanted. The strawberry cake with strawberry french buttercream we got was delicious! And the wedding cake itself was absolutely beautiful. I also reached out to her privately to add a little topper in the form of a rabbit and a monkey on the cake as a surprise for my husband. She got every single detail we discussed correct! The cake was also delivered promptly on time. I'm so happy with our decision to use Aromas Boutique Bakery! Thank you guys!

From the moment we went for our tasting, we were sold! Joanne and her sister are awesome culinary artists. Our wedding cake (vanilla cake, with Passionfruit buttercream filling) was to die for) and assorted mini-cupcakes were all gobbled up before the end of the evening. People raved, everyone had a favorite. Chocolate

I recently held a launch event with an invite list of over 50 guests, and I was stressing about a caterer. Everyone I called was either too expensive, didn't have enough dishes to meet the dietary restrictions of my guests, or the menu just didn't look appetizing. I met Sara at a community event in our neighborhood (we both live in Bed Stuy), and I was complaining about how unaffordable and unhealthy the catering options were available to us in our neighborhood. After just one minute of Sara telling me about her private catering service I knew it was the perfect fit. I don't know if it was her genuine passion for healthy eating or her charisma for her work in the community, but I loved working with Sara from start to finish. She even came to the venue and gave me an in person consultation as to what dishes she thought would be best for the event, and included ingredients I told her I could not live without! (avocado please!) The result? Happy guests who could not get enough of Sara's delectable dishes. The vegans, the vegetarians, the pescatarians, gluten free, and of course the carnivores asking me who had curated such wonderful treats! I look forward to working with Sara again. She is definitely my go-to chef for all my catering needs.

I hired BSK for a surprise birthday that I was throwing in the city, and I have to say that not only were they accommodating and really helpful during the planning, but they were absolutely spectacular at the event: Not only were they very accommodating to my guests, but they were prompt, organized, and really timely. Every part of the evening, from appetizer to dessert was so well timed, yet totally relaxed. Ora and Sara Elise were friendly, approachable, and even accommodating (as so many people loved the food, there were many questions on the recipes!) I had requested that the meal itself be vegan-accessible, with the addition of a simple protein like poultry. The food was so delicious and tasty that many of my guests (at finding out some of the options, like the cashew-ginger soup, were vegan) actually said "if I could eat like THIS every day? I would totally be vegan". The chicken was flavourful and juicy, the peach cake was light and deliciously peachy, the cheese board was a HIT... I mean, I could go on, truly, but you get the point. Overall I would not hesitate for a second to hire them again. If you are looking for some talented, responsive, friendly and personable chefs, you have found your match.

Chef Pearl is so talented! The cake was breath-taking. We didn't even want to cut into it. We requested west indian black cake. I didn't know what design/look to go with. Chef Pearl paid attention to my description of the dress and the feel I was going for and sent several beautiful inspiration photos of her previous designs. She came up with something that was unique, romantic, and perfect for us! The cake was absolutely delicious. It was moist, the icing was perfect, and everyone loved it. Chef Pearl accommodated us when we changed the dates and needed it much sooner. She delivered directly to the venue and packaged it so it would not be damaged. The owner of the restaurant had a slice and was really impressed. If you don't have time for a tasting and don't want to worry about getting the decorations right, you just wish you could order it and know it will be perfect when it arrives- stop stressing yourself out looking around for a baker and hire Chef Pearl asap. You get the whole package (design *and* flavor) and her prices are more reasonable than anyone else. She communicated with me by text, phone, and email, and worked around our schedules.

It was my pleasure to work with Chef Joy. I felt special and appreciated. Her expertise goes above and beyond! Chef Joy takes the pressure out of trying to create your wedding cake....she bares all the weight and created a cake that was so exquisite that I did not want to cut it; much less eat it. THE CAKE WAS DELICIOUS!!!!!!!OMG! I did not do a tasting only because I was stressed for time. Chef Joy took the pressure off of me, I did not worry about a thing. My fiance and myself just left it in her hands and we were not disappointed. Her cake flavor combinations tickles your senses and the texture was perfect. Chef Joy has gained a client for Life. I truly mean that....thank heavens I finally found a true pastry Chef who does everything and is a keeper!!!!!!!

Chef Pearl is a very professional and easy to work with person! She managed to make make cake only a few days after order and made it so beautiful! She always responds fast. If you are looking for a person who will make your life easier, hire Chef Pearl! It took me 10 minutes of phone conversation with her and my wedding cake order was done. And the cake turned out beautiful and delicious!

I had contacted Diane Douglaston Catering to cook a Valentine's Dinner for my wife & me, in our home. We met the owner Diana Ortiz who we found to be very professional & accommodating. The food was exquisitely prepared, seasoned perfectly & was delicious. My wife & I started out with appetizers which consisted of various hot & cold appetizers, which got our palates ready for the next course which was a Caesar Salad made with Romaine lettuce, large fresh made croutons, grated cheese and a Caesar Salad dressing she would not give up the secret recipe too. The main meal consisted of a salmon dish for my wife with a side of asparagus & seasoned brown rice which she loved. I had a filet mignon cooked to perfection which melted in my mouth. For dessert we had Cheesecake with strawberries drizzled with a chocolate sauce, which capped off a perfect dinner & what dinner would be complete with out a nice chilled bottle of sparkling champagne. This meal truly made our Valentines, easily worth the money & better than going to a crowded restaurant on Valentines Day with the hustle & bustle. Chef Diana impressed us very much that we will have her back next year and easily recommend her to our friends for any occasion.

Chef Diana catered a pool party at my home in Aug. 2013. I received quotes from other chefs but Diana was the only one who really paid attention to my menu requests and delivered an exceptional customized menu. An hour before the start of the party, the grill guy goes to light the grill and………. I forgot to double check the propane tank as she had suggested during the walk thru. Thankfully she was so well prepared that she was able to send the grill guy to Home Depot for a replacement tank. Diana’s staff treated my guests like royalty. The food was both delicious and beautifully presented. Thank you Diana!!! See you in August. Mr. Rivera

Please note, this review is based upon the cake tasting. Lavern's cakes were transcendent. I say this because my dad is not a cake person and loved each one. We chose some very complicated flavor combinations. I have been baking for years and am really picky about buttercream. Her's is AMAZING. Her fondant is actually ridiculously good. Her ability to balance flavor is spot on. Every sample was completely memorable. She is such a pleasure. I could not have imagined a better cake tasting. Much thanks to Lavern.

Our baby shower cake was delicious and nicely decorated. Janet worked with my budget and made three different delicious flavors. The cake was moist and just right in terms of sweetness. My guests enjoyed her cake very much. Janet was professional at all times and delivered our cake on time. She was a lovely person to work with, I am so glad I found her on Thumbtack!

I was very pleased with the food we received for our event. It smelled awesome and just about all of it was gone by the end of the night. I think our party goes really enjoyed it.! I was thrilled that Pat was able to work within our budget and gave us exactly what we needed. I would absolutely recommend her for other events who need food with a fixed budget. Pat, you rock and saved the evening! Also, i appreciated her traveling from outside of Manhattan to deliver our catering. I know it wasnt easy given the traffic uptown trying to travel downtown but she stayed in contact for updates on ETA. Thanks again Pat and Gourmet Home Chefs!

Chef Oprah did a special "pre" valentines dinner for us and our friends. We have dietary restrictions (vegetarian AND gluten-free) so not easy - and we like adventurous foods and flavors. Chef Oprah came up with a tailored menu which was fantastic from start to finish. Thank you for a lovely evening! (I wish I had taken more photos!)
