I dont ususlly do this but hey, i feel compelled to share my experiece. So, it was 2 days before Valentine's day and I had no clue as to what to do for my wife. So I decided to hire a personal chef. Nate was very accommodating and very easy to deal with. We spoke via text message and came up with a menu that I knew my wife and kids would be comfortable with. Nate and his assistant showed up at the time they said they would and got to work right away. Everything was EXCELLENT!!! I will definitely be calling Nate again for future events. I also made sure I got some business cards to share the experience with my friends and family. Thank you guys for your professionalism. See you again soon

Tara is fantastic! She catered an event for me at the Anthropologie Store in Short Hills. From start to finish she was extremely professional. She suggested menu items based on my theme for the event and then customized them for our esthetic. Not only did everything look good it tasted amazing. Our customers in Short HIlls, NJ have a very sophisticated palette and they raved about the food. I would certainly use Tara again for any event we would have in the store big or small. She is a talented chef, professional and easy to work with. Jennifer Burnley, Personal Stylist and Event Planner, Anthropologie

We had an amazing experience working with Chef Stef! We did appetizers for a small party and everything was perfect. The food was outstanding! And the team was so professional when setting up. Chef Stef was so easy to work with— I picked some appetizers from a set menu and then requested some others, and Chef was so accommodating and flexible. The price was also incredibly reasonable— especially for the quality! I highly recommend using Chef Stef and can’t wait to have him cater our next event. Thank you, Chef Stef!!!!!!

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.

Gerry provided personal chef services for my family and friends who were staying at my home for a week; he provided breakfast and dinner for 10-12 people. I was really impressed from the beginning for his level of professionalism, punctuality, and the high quality of the meals he provided for us.You can tell he really loves what he does. Everyone was delighted and I am sure we will be asking him to help us again in the very near future. I highly recommend him.

Chef Craig was hired as a personal chef for my proposal of marriage. He crafted a menu based on my preference and helped me consider the wine for pairing. He arrived at my house prepared for cooking for a memorable night and nailed it. I was extremely satisfied with his professionalism and culinary expertise.

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!

Chef Maggie is amazing! Before working with her, our meals were scattered and generally unhealthy, lots of take out and the like. We thought we didn't have time to cook healthy and quality meals, but we were wrong! She quickly determined the best ways to improve our diet, and worked with us to actually create meals that are healthy and delicious. Her meal plan has been perfect for us as novices, the meals are easy enough to create but sophisticated enough that we feel great about investing the time to prepare and enjoy them. It's such a relief knowing that we're eating well, and we couldn't have gotten on track without the expertise of Chef Maggie! I can't recommend her enough!!!

What a find! I couldn't be thankful enough that I found such an impressive and skilled Chef on Thumbtack! I was getting married for the first time and organizing a backyard wedding... Tim handled all the food for 60 plus guests and provided all the staff. The menu was innovative with fresh ingredients and a spin on some of the old classics. Plain old hummus , chicken and salmon for example, wowed our guests tastebuds' with the addition of exotic spices and citrusy flavors that really made for a memorable experience for my guests! Tim is a calm even-tempered Chef who took all the stress away from me knowing that the food, such an important part of any social event, was in great hands! Five stars!

I ordered two dozen gluten-free cupcakes for my son's 9th birthday party. Dawn was professional, friendly, and helpful during the ordering process. She decorated the cupcakes in the theme of the party, and delivered them to my home precisely when she said she would arrive. The cupcakes were not only beautiful, but absolutely delicious! I felt great to be able to offer treats for all of the children in attendance. It felt even better knowing they were baked with natural ingredients and love. I am so glad that I found her; I was able to enjoy the party without my usual worries and stress around preparing the cake! I completely recommend Dawn and her baking expertise!
