Chef Dominick was courteous and professional. Chef catered a progressive dinner in our neighborhood. The food was well prepared as was chef for this "moving" party. I would definitely hire Chef again, he understood that we were on a budget and stayed within those guidelines. In addition chef brought dinner, at no cost to us, at our Reset Ministry Women's Home. It was delicious and appreciated!! Thanks chef!

Greg was very easy to work with throughout the process. He had a very tough crowd to please. I wanted to do something special for everyone at NorthPointe and I wanted to make sure that our Culinary team did not need to do anything and Greg made sure of that. The turkey was very good, very moist and well seasoned. I heard that the cranberry sauce was very good as well. Overall we were pleased with our experience and Greg and his team did very well.

Great to work with, very quick to get back to us, and worked with us on price and options. The chef's had great ideas, and everything turned out great. We went with an Asian cuisine, and everything turned out great. Delivery was on time, they set it all up for us. Great service, will definitely use again in future catering needs!

I hired Chef Jessica for a co-worker a few weeks ago. She was very, very easy to work with and I'm still hearing about how delicious her meals are. When I need a chef again, she's the one I'm calling!

Jay Woosely of The Happy Chefs did an amazing job! He is a brilliant artist! This was my first experience hiring a personal chef. He helped guide me through the process. He was very easy to work with. Jay did exactly what he promised he would do and then some. He and his staff were very personable and honest. His creations were delectable and aesthetically pleasing! Jay helped to make our evening dinner for two one to remember. Thanks Jay! I will be using this service again! I would highly recommend Jay and The Happy Chefs for all of your catering needs. We really appreciated the complimentary dessert dishes as well. Thanks again for creating an wonderful environment.

The best recommendation I can give is that I will hire Leland again! He prepared my family Christmas dinner for 17 people and the rave reviews are still coming in. "The best Christmas dinner yet." The beef tenderloin was juicy and cooked to medium rare as I requested. The garlic mashed potatoes were flavorful and truly mashed potatoes like I've never tasted anywhere else. The green beans almandine were cooked tender but still crisp. Chocolate Lava Cakes for dessert, which are my family's favorite, were incredible. He responded to my search for a chef on Thumbtack quickly and followed up promptly on any questions I had before and after I hired him. The day of my family Christmas, he arrived right on time, prepared this wonderful meal, and cleaned up the kitchen. In the past, I spent the afternoon in the kitchen cooking and the evening washing pots and pans and dishes. But this year, I wanted a chef to prepare the meal so I could be with my family. I recommend others do the same so you can enjoy your family, friends, and parties. It is well worth it. And Leland Cummings is the Chef to do it.
