I have to say to myself, Why haven't I done this sooner. On Friday night we had a ladies night, 5, and Tony prepared 5-6 dishes and each one was amazing, delicious. He prepares well by asking all the right questions regarding the group he is preparing for and then executes it exquisitely!! I can't wait to plan my next event with Tony and I will also be doing some cooking classes with him. Tony from all of us ladies on Fri May 29th we thank you so such a wonderful special evening.

Donna came prepared and spent three hours patiently showing my friend and I proper knife/cutting techniques. She was very knowledgeable on the proper care of knives, the different kinds (the must-haves) and how they should be sharpened/maintained. I learned a lot and had a lot of fun. I also ended the night a large/delicious dish of tabbouleh to enjoy over the next few days. I would highly recommend Donna to anyone who is looking for a personal cooking lesson/demonstration.

I had the pleasure of working with Allison, she came to my house and gave me cooking lessons. She was very patient and fully explained everything she did. I learned so much from these lessons. I am now able to prepare gourmet food in my own kitchen. My husband and family are thrilled! If you want to learn some new things, even starting from scratch call Allison today, she in amazing!

Chef Guidry of Twice the Spice Caterer food was delicious! She delivered personal chef service for a special birthday dinner party. The food was very fresh and high grade/quality. The menu items were well balanced and included an appetizer, several different entrees, and desert. Stephanie even brought drink mixers and adjusted the menu to everyone’s liking, taste, and dietary. Chef’s professionalism extended throughout her cooking and presentation. She was even able to accommodate a few unexpected guests. The food was well prepared, finely seasoned to perfection, absolutely picture perfect and enjoyably delicious! She definitely brought a fine dining restaurant experience to our home handling the shopping, cooking, serving and cleanup. We will definitely utilize Chef Guidry of Twice the Spice Caterer again! Many Thanks, Meek

Chef Doug has cooked for me on several occasions. He has a wealth of food knowledge and experience. He is timely, tidy, and professional. Pictured below is a salad with pickled strawberries, grilled chicken, dandelion greens, Gorgonzola, strawberry vinegarette. The other is monkfish on rice with a side of sea beans and accented with lemon zest.

About

I love to cook and baking is my specialty! I spent 13 years working in at The Chocolate Gallery Cafe' in the Detroit Metropolitan area. We served breakfast and lunch during the day. At night, we catered high-end food to many upscale clients, as well as weddings and other events. My specialty is baking. The desserts I developed and made were the first place award-winning desserts that were often sold to other restaurants, country clubs and coffee houses in the area. Since moving to Pennsylvania in 2013, I am currently a garde manger at The Hill School.

Great hands-on teacher who really knows what he's doing. Plus, the food is sooo good!! From ingredients to cooking methods, this is the best cooking class I ever had. I learned new techniques and how to properly season, prep, and cook veggies and proteins. Definitely recommend and I'll work with him again soon. Perfect for a gift, meal prep, or to cook a whole meal for a party.

My true passion in life is cooking! I never went to a culinary school because I learned to cook at a very young age. I rarely use a cookbook because I just "get" what goes together. I am very diverse and can pull it all together in a pinch. I would love to come to cook for a party or have you come to me to learn how to make an amazing meal. Feel free to ask me any questions that you might have.

About

I cook because I love to comfort people, and providing delicious food is a simple, yet universal way to pour your heart out without saying a word! From a young age, I understood how good it felt to have people rave over my boxed cakes (I cook them from scratch now), to be asked by my friends to make my famous pasta dish for their sweet sixteen birthday parities or to have my aunt, a home economics teacher, be impressed over my ability to make the perfect, light and fluffy scrambled egg. I have experience with providing a warm, casual (small to medium) event on almost any budget. I can create something from almost nothing. I specialize in soul food, comfort food and ethnic food, with my own personal flair (yes, I can do healthier variations of almost any dish that I make). I am also a certified bartender and have knowledge of classic drinks, but can create my own recipe with ease. I will cook dinner for you or a romantic dinner for two, brunch for you and your BFFs, create a luau feast in the dead of winter. I will show you that money and timing isn't everything when it comes to entertaining. I will make it easy for you and your budget.

About

I like to cook for others and I enjoy baking. I do cooking and teaching how to cook. I'm willing to go into homes and prepare meals for them, plus I would like to help cater their parties. I do have experience in the field. I've been doing this for the past 40 years and was taught by some of the best chefs.
