Tony was headed and shoulders above what we could have expected. This was our first ever with an home personal chef. It was like having dinner prepared for you from a friend you haven't seen in a while and then when you see them, you wish you hung out more. Tony is a Gentleman, and a genuine good person. To the the food: We could have choose to sit back watch some TV, sit by the the fire Etc. and let Tony do his thing but we choose to watch the master Chef and take mental notes. Tony was very good at giving pointers to my wife on cooking, knife technique, ingredients etc. While Tony also answered my 101 questions about everything but cooking. The Food was excellent. Being as it was our first time we had a chef we had Tony choose dishes for us, we could have adjusted if we preferred. It was nice to have a spin on some traditional dishes and some we would not really ever cook our selves. BTW, My wife cooks every night so we are familiar with home cooked meals. To the Wine, by the GLOBAL WINE CHEF : My wife and I occasionally drink wine. This really is the super specialty of Tony. I have never had wine paired with food that made the wine and food taste so good together and on their own. I simply just don't know But my pallet and taste buds get it. Either crisp and clean in some areas and mellow and harmonizing in others. This was a true treat for us. This is not something we could do for ourselves or get at a restaurant. We give the experience, because for us that is what it was a 10 out of 10. What you get the money is great, certainly more than you pay for in my opinion. Tony definitely gets a sense of the people and weather you choose to be away from the kitchen and relax or right with him taking notes hes happy either way. Tony : Genuine Personable Well versed in food and Especially wine Thanks again Tony A true pleasure -Bryan and Mary

Our experience with Anton and his assistant was beyond amazing. Everyone has an expectatIon of how they want their event to be presented. From a sit down dinner wIth cocktail hour for 25 people in our home for thanksgiving. The PRESENTATION was phenomenal. it looked like a Norman Rockwell painting, the turkey, the ham, the gluten free dishes, all the family favorites that we requested. Done to perfection. This was the first holiday meal that I was able to enjoy my guests and not worry about cleaning up afterwards. Everyone raved about the food. Plenty of leftovers that didn't go to waste. We had take home containers for everyone. That was such a hit. That about 10 later we had our company holiday feast in our home catered by Anton. He was able to cater to all dietary needs. From vegan, to paleo, to very upscale palate pleasing dishes. So we challenged Anton one more time, for Christmas eve with our loved ones of 27 give or take. We asked him to do the Italian feast of the seven fishes. Omg is all I can say. What a presentation, from the cocktail hour before dinner, then our sit down dinner with mussels,scallops,clams, and crab. Then we had wrapped filet mignon cooked to order for each person along with grilled vegetables and an assortment of gluten free and vegan dishes to please everything. Even the homemade ice cream that Anton makes himself is yummy. He does not rush you to finish and I appreciated sooo Much. We had lil ones to tend to, so we didn't get a chance to all sit at once sometimes. Anton made us feel like a royalty in our castle, and he was our personal chef. If we could rate him at ten stars, that still wouldn't be enough. He is very versatile in his cooking and preparation and presentation of the meals he prepares. I recently switched sd cards in my phone, or I would have posted some pictures. When I locate,I will post. Price wise, he is reasonable and will work within your Budget and still give you the most enjoyable experience. Champagne dreams and cavier wishes should be one of Anton tag lines. I will say, in the future, the sooner you can plan your event, the better your chances of having Anton fulfill your desire to WOW your guests. Thank You Anton and family, for making our holiday gatherings something to remember .

Kim created a special dinner menu for our son, who turned 25! She asked about likes and dislikes and was very flexible in planning for exactly what we wanted. Kim showed up on time and prepared a fabulous meal at Jake's home for 8 people. Kim brought along a server, and cleaned up for us. Everything was fresh and delicious! We loved the way she thought outside the box and was so willing to make the menu suit our tastes! I would recommend Kim for any personal chef needs!

I had the pleasure of hiring FEAST Catering and Private Chef Services for my recent wedding and reception. At first I was apprehensive finding a vendor on-line since you really don't know if one lives up to their name. Mr. Battersby was very available whenever I needed to call or text about a matter, he responded right away so as to allay any fears I may have had. He was very professional in the time allotted regarding prep, setup and clean up and my guests thoroughly enjoyed his food. I would recommend FEAST Catering and Private Chef Services to anyone looking for a caterer. You will not be disappointed!

Fortunately, Eric and his wife came over to our house last night! They are two fantastically nice people and prepared and served us and our guests a wonderful dinner. We could not have been more pleased. My wife and I can honestly say that we had an absolutely great meal, met a superb chef and his adorable wife, and would highly recommend Holy Smokers to cater your venue in the future. I know they will return to ours! Thanks Holy Smokers!!

We purchased this as a gift for our boss and he could not say enough good things about the experience with Chef Cindi. From the food to the service to the interaction being just right, it was an evening our boss thoroughly enjoyed! In fact, He liked it so much so that he's hired him back for another night. I will definitely recommend Chef Cini to others.

John cooked for my 6th wedding anniversary. He Took his time to sit down with me to come up with a menu that me and my husband would enjoy. We started off simple with a salad where chef John used his homemade vinaigrette, the main course was a little more complex as he did lamb/ lobster surf and turf and very delicious and we even ended with dessert that was to die for! John cooked everything in our own kitchen which was amazing. Him and his team stayed throughout the whole meal and cleaned up everything I think our kitchen was cleaner than when they got there haha It was a great pleasure to have John and his team cook for us!

My experience with David's culinary gifts have been both as a server in a restaurant where he was the chef and privately as a server for special event catering. I enjoy working with David because of his professionalism and talent. Tasting the food you serve is an essential part of providing excellent customer service. David's sauces are hands down the best I have ever had. I highly recommend David as a personal chef.

Matt has been cooking for us for several months now as a personal chef delivering meals to our house weekly. We look forward to his delicious, professionally prepared cooking for a delicious sit down family dinner at home saving us from the preparation time or cleanup afterward. Each meal is customized to our tastes with Matt making suggestions and we give our input about what we want to have that week. We highly recommend his services.

Tony Daggett has been the all time favorite chef of the International Primal Psychology Association. This is a very demanding group who has always otherwise had food complaints. Tony's diverse meals, fresh deserts and creative snacks, as well as his extremely cooperative and charismatic behavior all contribute to his success. I was not the least bit surprised to hear of his branching into event coordination as he has everything that it takes and more to please all kinds of groups. He is considerate, listens well and observes what is needed, and he goes about putting himself into things as needed to make for fabulous events. You'll be glad when you choose to hire Tony! Gratitude to Tony for satisfying our group with it's intensive needs and huge range of demands. We couldn't have asked for more.

I have medical conditions that leave me exhausted after working 8 hour days. As a result, I would not have the energy to cook healthy meals. Our dinners included fast food, delivery or pre-packaged meals. When I found out that Traci, a friend of my sister, was in culinary school I approached her about becoming our personal chef and preparing 4-5 meals a week that are either ready to cook with minimal efforts or only needs to be reheated. In January 2015, we hired Traci as our personal chef. I provided Traci with some of our favorite recipes. A shared Pinterest board was also created to share online recipes. As my husband is a picky eater, finding recipes that he approves has been a challenge. Traci quickly learned acceptable foods and has been great about suggesting substitutions for recipes. After 2 months of working with Traci, I had to go on a low sodium diet. She had no problems modifying meals so they would be lower in sodium. Each week Traci prepares the next week’s meal plan by reviewing our approved recipes and requests for repeated meals. We review the meal plan and make changes as needed. Traci purchases the food while considering ingredients that she still has in stock. On the following day, she prepares the meals in her house. The meals are placed into glass dishes or covered disposable foil serving trays with copy of the recipes attached. After the meals are ready, I pick up them up at her house. The meals are then kept in the refrigerator (or the freezer) until I am ready to cook/heat it. We provide Traci feedback on each meal. Traci accepts our feedback well and takes into consideration our requests when making the meal again. The meals have been delicious and most have earned a rating of 5 out of 5 stars. The meals not receiving 5 stars were not a result of Traci’s meal preparation skills but due to the recipe, such as the seasonings. Prior to hiring Traci I was never fond of left-overs. Now I find myself excited to have left-overs. Traci has even gotten my husband to eat foods I never expected. My husband has eaten and really liked meals prepared by Traci that he did not like when made by myself or family. He has even eaten vegetables that he has refused to eat as he thought he didn’t like them. I highly recommend Traci Zammetti as a personal chef. Not only are our meals better tasting than I would make, but we are healthier as a result of the healthier meals and less stress in our lives.
