Alison catered a meal for 10 of us last weekend, and it was indeed a Wonderland of Food. Party was fantastic - so nice knowing that someone else is in the kitchen taking care of all the hard stuff so that we can socialize. The meal was fantastic! The chicken so tender with interesting spices. Each side dish complemented the main, but was practically a main in its own right. And of course, after you are so full you don't think you can get up from the table - desert arrives. Oh, you WILL find the room for it. So good. Thank you Alison! We'll do it again for sure.
Bonnie has been delivering meals to my home on a weekly basis. Being a full time student with severe food allergies it become too difficult and time consuming to cook every meal, so with Bonnie's service it has been a much needed relief. She is very punctual, listens to your needs, and most importantly cooks great food! Would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of personal cooking or even catering.
Jamie regularly caters corporate meetings and classes for between 10-50 people for the Oregon Society of CPAs. She is always professional, prompt and courteous to the guests and the food is always delicious! Jamie has been very accommodating with our busy schedule and comes up with a great selection of creative and delicious meals. I would highly recommend Eat at Joe's catering for any event!
As the first time cook for the Mid-Columbia Men's Camp, Keith did an outstanding job for us! Food selection, preparation, and presentation was excellent and well-received by all who attended with much appreciation and admiration for a job well done! We have already asked Keith back for next year's camp. Thanks Keith!
Remembered all of our likes and dislikes. Came up with a great meal plan for us and we are definitely going to have her come by again.
When Michael Eckert rolls into a BBQ competition the other professionals know it's just been cranked up one BIG notch! Few can achieve the flavor and tenderness Mike produces. No matter the meat, no matter the challenge, he's not only up to it but his extraordinarily prepared foods exceed expectations. Never have I known his BBQ to disappoint. My personal standards are very, very high but Mike's creations dazzle my taste buds every time I am lucky enough to enjoy them!
Shoshana catered two lunches for our national network meeting of 30 people. She was prompt and professional. The food was delicious and nicely displayed. Her Mediterranean meal was a favorite amongst our guests and received many rave reviews.
Paul just catered mine and a friend's multi day birthday party. He prepared three WONDERFUL meals three days in a row. As a long time friend of ours he was incredible at balancing his responsibilities as caterer (which I assure you he took very seriously) with his ability to have fun with the group!! The meals were all meticulously made and served just when the group was getting antsy. Seriously, his menu was beautiful and delicious. I would highly suggest you give him a shout. Ps he has experience with carnivores, vegetarians, and vegans so don't be worried about that!!
Imaginative, innovative and delicious meals by Garcia- always memorable.
Chef Stef has catered several parties at our home. She prepared the food, help with the wine paring and kept guest entertained with her knowledge. She is the perfect hostess for any party. Her culinary skills are well-honed.
It was an absolute pleasure to have Heather from Simple Plate come into my home and share with me her vast knowledge of cooking. She made the whole process very stress free and enjoyable, even getting my young children involved! We all loved the meal we prepared together and also learned several tips and tricks for making our time in the kitchen more efficient. Heather is a very talented cook and I can't wait to have her back for another lesson! I highly recommend her services!
Marc is clearly a pro, very knowledgeable and able to instruct with a clear and charming style. He demonstrated and taught how to prepare a delicious meal that included a goat cheese, caramelized onion and micro green appetizer; steelhead filet over pasta and topped with a citronette relish; and an apple tartan dessert. The dinner was delicious but, more importantly the demonstrated techniques seemed straightforward and doable. I highly recommend him as an instructor, personal chef or a combination of both like he did for us. His was also reasonably priced.
I contacted Steffi with fatigue and digestive issues that have been plaguing me for years. She responded immediately with an array of situational questions to diagnose accurately. Just that step alone started the realization process of my sugar induced crash and burn diet. She developed a personal plan to cut my sugar, increase water consumption, and healthy ways to get thru my swing shift work schedule. She also introduced bitters for digestion including recipes to make my own. (I have made and still use daily.) This literately changed my life. I'm lactose and gluten intolerant and have trouble digesting most food combinations. With the aid of bitters, I actually feel my stomach working again. I'm now not afraid to eat hearty meals, which was the cyclic problem of amping up on carbs for energy. Steffi checked in often and made me feel truly important with one on one guidance.
Jane is an exceptional chef, and was able to prepare me very specialized meals for a healing diet I was on. I felt my stress melt away each time she came to cook, and the meals were delicious! The variety of dishes she made was wonderful - so many things I never would have thought to prepare myself. Thanks Jane!
What a joy it is to try all of the great tasting and healthy family meals prepared by Linda and Mimi with such care and professionalism. Our family is very grateful to have found such a wonderful team to guide us in our journey to eat healthier together.
Rick Browne's expertise in all facets of cooking are outstanding, but are particularly impressive in all things related to BBQ. By that, I mean grilling, smoking, and the preparation of foods being considered. He blends experience developed over years to create classics, from Baked Alaska for intimate dinner parties of 25 guests, to smoking a suckling pig on an indirect smoker to serve 200 people. Well versed in kitchen technique, he is an astute chef that has a very rare recognition degree of a Doctorate in BBQ from some prestigious societies in the trade. RIck is an engaging conversationalist at every event I have been a part of with him, espousing his knowledge of food and wine pairings to the guests enjoyment.
Taste of Life catered a meeting for me. Charnel prepared lunch for 12 people. She arrived on time and was very professional. The food was amazing and the cost was reasonable. I highly recommend Taste of Life!
Reception for Le & Hansen Feb 17th, 2018 - Such a great experience having Skylar. Very professional. I could see he was dedicated to the job at hand. Tops in value, work quality, on time. The dishes he prepared went over very well with the guests. His staff assistants very much in stride with him. Very efficient, professional. This shows he sets a good example. I would call him again for future events. Thank you in making the event special! Norma Kilgore - Wedding Coordinator
Brittany Baldwin of Portland Home Chef is an inspiring and encouraging teacher. She listened to what my needs, objectives, fears and competencies/challenges are and then created a learning menu designed to give me just what I needed. I wish I could have her in my home every night cooking with me! I came away from our session empowered about my capacity to prepare delicious, nourishing food for my son and me. I have new skills and insights--and recipes--and a renewed sense of fun about being in my kitchen. And now, every time my son (who is 2) eats something that tastes good, he asks if Brittany has prepared it. Plus, Brittany is a wonderful, easygoing person who is just enjoyable to have in your kitchen. This is an extraordinary value.
I provide private chef services for groups of up to 40 people. I have custom menus and professional services, from casual buffets to intimate in-home dining.
