Spinelli Chef Services and Catering did an excellent job catering our wedding reception and helped ensure that we had everything we needed to make our day perfect. We are still hearing complements on the food from our guests, there were many fine details that stood out to our guests including the pork with relish , and the mint in the fruit salad, there were also many vegetarian options. Service was friendly and all around they were great to work with.

Michael is a consummate Chef. His attention to detail, ability to listen, yet, offer his expertise to enhance the culinary choices based on his experience, and his understanding of the importance of presentation, food quality, and overall excellence, far exceeded my expectations. Rave reviews from all who attended my daughter's bridal shower luncheon. I recommend Souperb Catering, with Michael at its helm, without any hesitation. You will not be disappointed!

India was amazing at finding out what I really wanted and creating it! My family loves peanut butter but not necessarily chocolate. She created a delicious cheesecake that was peanut butter and infused with raspberry. It was beautiful and delicious!

We hired Epicurean Services for an in home cooking lesson. My boyfriend is a moderately experienced chef and Bradley did a fantastic job of working with his level of experience to make the lesson informative for both of us. He cooked stuffed fish, rice pilaf and green bean almondine. The rice pilaf was delicious and simple, I have already remade it less than a week later. The green beans and tilapia were creamy and filled with flavor. Bradley was so much fun to talk to and I really enjoyed the convenience and comfort of having a fine dining experience at home. I look forward to using Epicurean Services in the future for events and relaxing date nights. Bradley is passionate and knowledgeable about his work and I would recommend his services to any human being with the ability to eat food.

Wow! Chefs Catering put on a delectable feast at my good friends wedding. They were very professional and accommodating to our repetitive request for MORE of their great food! Although the bride was the topic of conversation, Chefs Catering was a close second! I will definitely use them for my next event and highly recommend that you do too.
