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!

Bacco Catering provided exceptional service at our recent corporate event. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the food was fabulous! Chef Lauren is quick to respond to any questions/concerns. We will definitely be using them for our future NYC area events. Highly recommended!

This was last minute, and I haven't had better from chefs who had days to prepare. The menu was well suited to the occasion, the presentation was elegant and the taste good the the last bite. Thanks Wayne

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!

Over the years, Rich has catered many events for me. From a chefs birthday party for 13 year old girls to a fully catered holiday dinner party. Every detail was perfection and the food was amazing!

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.

Whether you are having a small get together for a few or a large gathering, be rest assured that your event will be amazing! Chef Michel is extremely professional, respectful, and friendly! He catered 2 events for our family and we were very pleased with both. The first was a party of nearly 100 people celebrating our son’s college graduation and daughter’s high school graduation. Our second event was a last minute post Thanksgiving weekend family get together for 12-15 people. Everything from the planning, to taste testing, and delivery was on point. Aside from the food being beyond mouth watering delicious, he coordinated with outside vendors to provide everything we needed to make the graduation event beautiful. He also provided on site chefs and wait staff, all of which were professional and attentive to details. They were flexible in their assigned roles and remained past the scheduled time to attend to our guests and clean up. Our home was left as clean as it was when they arrived! Chef Michel prides himself on delivering the best quality and freshest foods possible. Other than a few items that required pre-prep (like marinating / slow cooking...definitely try the roast pork and roast chicken) everything was prepared (cut, fried, cooked, assembled etc) on site. This truly makes a difference when you’re serving items like empanadas or tostones with avocado and shrimp (both highly recommended). Chef Michel is very creative. Whether you choose something from his printed menus, have other items in mind, or even have a special recipe that you want him to prepare...HE CAN DO IT! An important point to make about his catering style is that he is so proud of his creations that he wants everyone to be able to taste everything that he prepares. If you choose an appetizer and you have 100 people, you are not going to get 1 or 2 pieces per person or be charged by the piece, like most caterers. He will make sure you have more than enough for everyone. The same applies to your main course. We had leftovers for ourselves, even after our guests took food home. With all of this said, I truly feel that his prices are fair and reasonable! I could write more and would be more than happy to speak to anyone who has any questions, but I’ll end with...make sure you try his homemade ice creams (our favorites were coconut and pineapple), flan, and especially the sangria!

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!

May 18, 2012 Chef Monterroso's services were a " 40th " birthday gift to my nephew who lives in New York. I, however, am located in Arizona and had made the arrangements over the telephone. His pleasant tone, accomodating demeanor, warmth and customer service skills are absolutely amazing. He was so intuitive regarding the menu choices and other requests that I knew immediately that he would be my choice. My nephew and his family were totally pleased. He telephoned me the moment Chef Oscar left his home. My nephew said he was totally blown away by the professionalism, warmth, customer service skills, knowledge and overall service. He could not say enough complimentary things about the food preparation, taste and choices. He and his wife are already making plans to contact him for several upcoming occasions. I would definitely recommend him to any one whether in state or out of state. You definitely get MORE than your money's worth. ONE DRAWBACK: I wish I had been there to savor all of the great food about which my nephew raved. LOL

Tara is an outstanding chef! Her food is well thought out to suit the needs for your special event. It is delicious and artfully presented from her own recipes. Tara creates a one of a kind, personalized menu. She listens to what your desires are for your party and works with you to achieve a fabulous result! The food is well timed enabling your event to run smoothly and on time. She is gracious and more than willing to intermingle with your guests if that is your wish. Her staff is excellent and very well presented. The entire operations was flawless and extremely professional! I had a four course dinner party for ten people at my home. Tara paired wines for each course which were excellent choices. Everything was so fresh and exquisite! Tara and her staff left my kitchen immaculate with everything in its place. Each one of my guests is now raving about Tara Ciannella and her entire operation!

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!

Chef Stef is a professional Culinary Chef that teaches you step by step how to prepare different recipes. Every two weeks it's a different menu. He provides you with all the food to cook and all the utensils and dishes you need to prepare a wonderful meal. It's always a fun group and we love cooking together. His knowledge about the different products, where there from, where you can buy them and how healthy they are, is very educational. He sometimes pairs the recipes you have prepared with a tasting of different wines or beers of different regions depending on which recipe you are cooking that day. Chef Stef also provides you with containers to take whatever Recipes you have cooked home for your family and children to enjoy. I highly recommend going to Chef Stef cooking classes.

We were so happy to have chosen Chef Anne to cater our Mom's 90th Birthday Party. From my first conversation with her to follow up email she was helpful professional and provided first rate service. Chef Anne made recommendations as well as guided me thru selecting Glueten Free etc type dietary concerns. I felt like Ive known her for years as she is so easy to work with, now I have a friend in the catering business. We had many positive comments how delicious everything was and I would recommend her and will be happy to call her again.

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!

Delicious professionally prepared and cooked food delivered to our door! Our family receives breakfast, lunch and dinner and we can't believe we didn't do this a long time ago. Since I'm not able to make our meals anymore we struggled for a while until we spoke to Maison Prive Chefs. They understand our dietary needs and clearly strive to help people. I asked to change one thing and it was done immediately. They make sure we are happy with the food and service all the time. Maison Prive is truly a blessing for us and I would recommend it to everyone!
