Alison has been terrific to work with. We have used her in a few different capacities in the last 2 weeks...private chef for a dinner party, caterer for a holiday cocktail party and chef for delivered meals. Her food has been delicious, and she is really easy to work with. She is open to suggestions and will also give her opinion on what she thinks will work best depending on the event. She is quick to respond, always professional and reasonably priced. I plan on using her again and recommend you give her a try.

I never imagined my dream wedding like a lot of girls do. I always figured a wedding would be between the bride and the groom and never thought much about feeding guests or even having a beautiful dress. But, in January of 2016 I set the date to finally walk down the aisle. I had six months to plan the day's events. It seemed more than daunting to plan everything. As a woman pushing 40 with a full time career and a child to raise, having the "perfect wedding" was definitely not a priority to me. Also, with finances being an issue, i certainly was counting my pennies and not expecting anything fancy at all when I added everything up. A few months before the wedding I reached out to Danielle and Austin, knowing they were chefs and had recently been married themselves, to get a few money savings tips and maybe some free advice on how I could feed about 100 people on a tight budget. I was going to attempt a potluck wedding. That first phone call with Danielle changed everything. I let her know my situation and I laid it all out for her. Bottom line, I wanted a no frills- "just feed the people" wedding reception! By the end of that fateful phone call, Danielle offered me peace of mind in my menu choices, awesome tips on what foods go well with others and what doesn't and she even provided me surprising comfort with a particularwedding ceremony detail that I had been worried about. Her advice on a personal level and a professional level relieved me so much. At that point I realized I NEEDED to hire her officially and not just skim her knowledge for free advice! Ha! Shortly after I officially hired her, she provided a beautiful wedding menu just for me that expressed the casual feeling I wanted but added TONS of class! She met with me briefly before the wedding to go over a few more details. Even during that brief meeting I was left at ease knowing she fully understood my plans and trusted her completely. I wasn't worried a bit. A week before the wedding, the unthinkable happened. My outdoor picnic wedding had to be cancelled due to rain. Danielle and Austin were quick to make all appropriate adjustments and eased my mind about the sudden change of plans as well. On my wedding day, I was so happy to walk into the kitchen that morning and see her and Austin's smiling faces. They both seemed SO cool and relaxed. Neither one of them had that "hurried" chef look. They created an amazing spread with such elegant details that really surprised me! Cucumber-melon water, anyone? Healthy and savory quinoa pasta? Sheesh! What a TREAT! When it was time for the champagne toast, Danielle brought my glass to me with such a gracious and refreshed smile that I didn't even notice that she had been hustling as she helped serve the rest of my guests their drinks. Just pure professionalism and talent. Danielle and Austin have a unique talent of helping their client clarify their menu ideas and bring them into fruition. They took a scary and possibly pathetic wedding day and turned it into a memorable and elegant experience. Thank you guys! We will ALWAYS hire you and would be happy to recommend your incredible gifts to all of our friends and family

Elaine and Austin make hiring a caterer easy. They did an excellent job between providing us with different menu options, helping us work within our budget, and answering any questions along the way. She made a salad with fresh cesar dressing and a meat lasagna that had everyone coming back for seconds. We look forward to working with them again in the future and appreciate their professionalism and time investment in helping us pull of a wonderful event with no hiccups.

    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!

      Cooking and owner care. Cade prepared gourmet meals while I was the guest of a friend for whom he cooked and did household chores in California and the Jersey shore. He became a friend as well as a chef. I recommend him for an experience you will find delightful. Tim Gilbert

      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!

      Dee is a fantastic cook, and her expertise and experience in cooking Latin and Caribbean cuisine comes straight from the heart. Her tamales and jerk chicken are especially delicious, and will leave you wanting more. I would highly recommend attending one of her cooking classes!

      Rick Browne knows his BBQ and his mastery of the grill has produced some of the best food I have ever tasted. Over the years I have been lucky enough to attend a couple of Rick Browne catered events. Grill-roast prime rib, tangy BBQ sauce, stuffed peppers with BACON!, and an amazing white chocolate orange souffle...just a sample of the goodness that has been prepared by Chef Rick.
