I am thrilled to of found chef Damon on thumbtack! He customized a clam bake for us. His thi meatballs were excellent and the pepadu peppers stuffed with goat cheese were addictive! Dinner was clams chicken a mixed roasted potatoes and corn of course. With rolls and corn bread. Then chef put together a ice cream sundae bar any kid would love! The food was beautifully displayed and was so delicious. My guest gave rave reviews and will definitely use Damon in the future. I know we will! Avery was our server for the evening and she took care of all my guests and kept everything orderly and clean. Look not further Damon is your man!

Jeff Brown is a fantastic trainer and chef! I have been working with him 3xs per week for 4 weeks and have already lost 7 pounds. His approach to fitness and nutrition is absolutely motivating and realistic. He initially took the time to listen and understand my fitness goals and put together a fitness program/nutrition plan that is fun and easy to follow. He is also a fantastic chef and prepares nutritious and delicious meals for myself and my family weekly. I am looking forward to Jeff working with my kids this summer as well. I highly recommend him! - KSF

Jeff's awsome food.

If you are looking to expand your capabilities to prepare a wider variety of different meals, are looking to try new dishes, or are a novice chef just getting started - this is a great class to take. Abby's experience and knowledge in preparing sauces, combining spices, selecting and cooking the right cuts of meat, complimentary side dishes, and proper utilization of the kitchen "tools" is inspiring. She is extremely helpful and patient in explaining each step in the process of creating a delicious meal, while giving you enough freedom to explore individual levels of taste and learn from little mistakes you may make along the way as we all do in cooking. I truly enjoyed my time with Abby...I learned so much...and I look forward to taking more classes with her!

My eyes filled with tears as I first read the menu Brian and SOW Foods created. Finally! somebody get us! I felt like Brian had known us for years. He created dishes not only of our favorite foods but also incorporated our personalities, our families, and was even able to work with picky 84 year old grandma. SOW food was so much more than just a caterer they helped Andrew and I make our wedding. And we are forever grateful. And have you tried Maggie's pastries!

I hired Tres Belle Events to host a private dinner for my family and I and it was EXCEPTIONAL! My family was so impressed, and they had no idea that we could actually hire someone to cater a special lovely dinner for us. Vanessa and her team communicated with us throughout the entire process. The chef was great! The food was yummy and the presentation was all well put together! I've never seen such service offered in Ohio before. We look forward to hiring Tres Belle Events for many more events. You can't go wrong with with them.

An amazing personal chef experience. Chef Nova came to my home and prepared an amazing dinner for my husband and I on our anniversary. She was very professional, and ensured to make a meal we would enjoy. Chef prepared for us a fresh green salad tossed in a homemade Caesar dressing, roasted asparagus, creamy shrimp Alfredo alongside a thick juicy flavorful rib eye steak. My husband and I toasted our anniversary with a white wine sangria chef prepared also. Needless to say it was an amazing evening that we will never forget.

When my husband and I were looking for wedding venues we targeted ones that would allow us to bring in our own caterers. Although we have had some pretty good "wedding food" in the past, we wanted to break away from the formal/traditional wedding setup and incorporate a more relaxed and fun atmosphere into our reception. Wrap It Up definitely helped us to accomplish this! Not only was the food phenomenal, but the staff was some of the friendliest and most accommodating group of individuals I had the pleasure of dealing with. Chef Anthony sat down with me to discuss my list of wants/needs, and then gave me suggestions on how he and his team could help make it the best day ever! We planned a menu that focused on their signature wrap menu (and TOTS), but served it in a way that allowed for individuals to also create their own flavor combinations. This allowed for those with food allergies and dietary restrictions to create a meal that would fit their needs. Guests were also able to choose items a la carte, or for the carb conscious individuals, select to have their meal "unwrapped." We have more than a few vegetarians and a handful of individuals with gluten allergies and this setup really helped to allow them access to foods they can eat. Not to mention the Zesty Veggie Wrap was the food of choice for even some of our most carnivorous guests (it’s just so good!!!). As much as I can appreciate a good formal wedding dinner it never fails that mid-way through the reception I always find myself hungry because the portions are typically smaller. With Wrap It Up as our caterer there was no need for guests to make a late night taco bell run as they were served with hearty portions of home cooked food full of robust flavors. Wrap It Up also put together snack trays for our cocktail hour which included a fruit tray and cheese and crackers. All of this as well was entirely customizable based on the budget we had agreed upon. I truly can’t thank Wrap It Up enough for their service. Of all the vendors we had they were the ONLY vendor to not ask me (The Bride) any questions on the wedding day. They made it a point to cover all bases prior to the wedding day so that all that was left was a well-planned execution. So much time is spent on selecting the perfect wedding vendors to help you achieve your "dream wedding." For my husband and I that dream was very simple: all of our friends, lots of beer, and exceptional food. Wrap It Up delivered more than we could have asked for!! I would hire them again in an instant! P.S. Don't forget the TOTS!!! :)
