  1. #1 Amoraco

    Kelly C.

    Tamara catered our engagement party Nov 2014 for 50 people. She was extremely easy to communicate with from the start, whipped up a great selection of appetizers for us to choose from (our guests raved about the truffled wontons!) and seamlessly provided a bartender and all the alcohol as well. She's very friendly, on time, easy to work with, and I wouldn't hesitate to use her for future events. Thanks Tamara!

  2. #2 Culinary Accommodations

    (60 reviews)

    Emma B.

    Chef Leslie provided a fabulous dinner for our group of 9 girls celebrating a bachelorette party. Chef Leslie was helpful and knowledgeable in picking a menu, taking advantage of the best produce available, and overall creating a great night. She was responsive, reliable, punctual and professional. The dinner was not only delicious, but she left the kitchen spotless and packed amazing goody bags with leftovers! She found her way around the kitchen with ease (we were at a home we rented, so I had no idea how to direct her if she needed help, thankfully she didn't), she made everyone comfortable and she generally was easy to have around and be around. It was an absolute pleasure working with her and I would highly recommend her for any event that you may need!

  6. #6 Food by Alexander

    (13 reviews)

    Megan D.

    I hired Alex to surprise my husband for his birthday with a fine dining meal in the comfort of our home. We started with scallops. Usually my husband are so so on scallops - but Alex chose the best, fresh scallops and cooked them to perfection. They were delicious. Then, we moved onto a butternut squash soup. I loved the texture - thick and rich. There was a little extra, so Alex left it in the fridge for us. My husband told me to stay away from the leftovers this morning because he wanted it, so it must have been good. We then had a nice salad with really fresh, great tasting tomatoes. We ended with the main course - my husband's favorite - beef wellington and mashed potatoes with gravy. I have never had beef that was that tender. We haven't stopped talking about how good it was. Alex was friendly and professional. He served us the entire meal and then cleaned up afterwards. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone looking for a fantastic chef.
