I have a lot to say about Chef Anton (Feast catering), in hopes of conveying my appreciation for all the work he and his team did and also to encourage you to hire him NOW! I reached out on Thumbtack in search of a wedding caterer. Chef Anton got back to me right away. He said he could honor our budget and he took the time to tell me about all the food he offers. Then Chef Anton invited us over for a tasting. He were sold right away. His professionalism, service, and of course the quality of the food blew us away. Next, Chef Anton agreed to come to our venue upon the event coordinator's request....didn't complain, didn't charge us for his time, just showed up ready to work. He toured the venue and had amazing ideas regarding where to set up, serve, etc. Then came the big day. Chef Anton was punctual as always and got right to work. The food was awesome as was the service. Chef Anton and his team did all the setting up, serving, and clean up. He had special plates for my wife and I so we didn't have to get up and serve ourselves! An important side note: my father in law made our cake, and Chef Anton ran back to his car to grab a knife so we could get it, then he went out of his way to serve cake to our guests. True professional. At the end of the experience, and in writing this review, I feel very emotional because Anton treated us like family throughout this process. Great food and great guy. Meet him in persona and listen to what he had to offer and he will take care of your event! He was the MVP of our wedding day. Chef Anton, thank you truly and please keep in touch.

Tanya, prepared an excellent meal for 11 people on my 60th birthday. We talked, and she presented menu choices. She arrived promptly with one helper. They worked hard in the kitchen, were very helpful, and allowed me and my partner to enjoy the evening, and our guests without worrying about anything. I highly recommend Tanya as a personal chef for all occasions!!

From the moment Milissa arrived she exuded professionalism and kindness. She had clearly done a lot of prep before she arrived with special additions to the menu such as granita, a grapefruit sorbet that we tasted between courses to cleanse our palates. She not only served us an excellent meal but also gave us special pointers about flavor combinations, the source of some of the special ingredients and other information that made our experience more full and interesting. My guests and I were pleasantly surprized at the high quality of food that she prepared and the overall experience. We will certainly request Milissa's services again and recommend her highly to anyone else looking for a personal chef.

Sister Jess provided a creative cooking lesson as a Christmas gift given with Love to Beloved Family. She taught the making of a traditionally Communal Meal called Paella in a Home setting - in way that All involved could truly access as a Learning Community. Because of Her technique and willingness to travel ( much like a United Methodist itinerant minister ), food and Her knowledge about it can be shared. Kudos to this Sister & Son/Daughter who graciously funded 🌸🌾💗🌾🌸gratitude and a big Thumbs Up! bless all, gwyn gary beau ella et al the Family

I needed a Chef for my dads 60th birthday party. I interviewed a few Chefs but chose Alex because he was not only very professional, but seemed as in to my event as i did! He and his staff arrived early, were very nice and even patient with some unruly guests. The server they brought was outstanding and cleaned as she went to ensure the tables always remained looking nice. The food was amazing! Without a doubt a 5 star meal... all in my parents home! Alex was easy to work with and very accommodating when I changed the number of guests twice, I will hopefully be using Chef Alex in the future and definitely recommend him to everyone. I look forward to attending on of his events around the city as well. Overall it was a great party and Alex and his staff really added to the experience.

It was a pleasure working with Troy's Personal Chef Service. This was my first experience working with a personal chef and Chef Troy certainly fits the bill. I have an extremely hectic schedule and have limited time for grocery shopping and cooking for my family. A fact that has me feeling uneasy at times. However, Chef Troy is just the right fit for a busy lifestyle. He eliminated the pressure I feel in the kitchen. He is punctual, knowledgeable, professional, skillful, personable and neat. All the qualities I would expect from a personal chef. Thank you Chef Troy!! Christine LaBelle, Easton, PA.

I know you are probably asking yourself the question: "Do I need a personal chef service?" Well... are you: - Tired of eating out every night? - Too busy or too tired to cook? - Tired of the question: "What's for dinner?" - Do you want to improve your eating habits, but don't have the time? - Would you like to have some meals put away for those nights you're too tired to cook? - Do you have a palate for delicious cuisine, but are all thumbs in the kitchen? - Do you like to host in-home parties, but dislike the preparation and cleanup? If your answer to any of the above was "yes", then you need a personal chef! And if you live in the Tri-State area, then Catering To Your Whims... personal chef service can fill your needs. With today's economy, more and more folks are finding themselves with less and less time for the mundane domestic activities, and cooking dinner takes a lot of time, especially if you want to eat right. How much time would you spend to prepare a proper menu that includes healthful foods? One to two hours? And then how long in the grocery store? Another two hours? And then you have to cook the food every night! Another hour or so, daily. Truthfully, if you count up all those hours just spent around eating, you're looking at easily ten hours or more every week, not including breakfast and lunch! Okay, so you'll eat out. Where? The same place you ate last night? And the night before? And the cost! How much would you pay for a meal that won't spread your hips or make you lose energy an hour later? More and more people are seeking other alternatives to preparing their own meals. Have a look in the grocery store: The butcher counter now provides "heat-n-eat" meats for people on the go, and frozen dinner aisles take up a fifth of the entire grocery store! And those frozen dinners! Have you ever read the ingredients' list? What plant or animal does some of that stuff come from? This is why you need a personal chef! And that's what we do! Our personal chef will: - Plan your menus exactly according to your taste. - Do all the shopping at the grocery store. - Professionally prepare your meals in your kitchen. - Store all your meals in your refrigerator or freezer, labeled with heating instructions. - Clean up your kitchen spotless!

About

I am an extremely affordable and highly skilled personal chef, available in Philadelphia and in surrounding areas, for all occasions. I can cook at your home, bring you fully prepared meals with simple instructions, or cater small parties. I am very flexible and very affordable. I am looking to get a name for myself, and let my reputation speak for itself before I want to become profitable. I am a self-taught at-home cook or personal chef. I've always been able to cook since I was a child, but over the past 8 or so years, my skill level has really jumped leaps and bounds. Long story short, I was about 23 or 24 when I was fairly broke. I am now 31. I had to work with what was in my pantry and refrigerator every night on a very tight budget. Combined that with books and the food network, I was able to create some really tasty and unique dishes. Over the years, I've come a long way in my career, outside of cooking, to be able to afford better and fresher products, and my skill level and technique have exceeded my expectations beyond belief. Over the past four or five years, I really started to notice that people I would cook for weren't just saying "Oh, this is good. Can I have the recipe?" It was more along the lines of "Wow, I would order this any day of the week in a restaurant." Or "This is amazing. You really should think about opening up a restaurant or get a TV cooking show." It was then when I realized this skill might be a little bit more than just an above-average at-home cook type of ability. I did some work in a professional kitchen, while I was in Colorado at a three-star restaurant. This was more of getting a feel of the day-to-day life of running a kitchen. The executive chef really took me under his wings, and showed me a lot of little things that I probably never would've even thought about. From there, I started doing personal chef work and small party catering for friends and family. I did this all free of charge, because I loved it so much. My brother, who can be a skeptic, or some might say a realist, of my crazy ideas, even told me this is something I should really go for. That brings us to the present. I got married and moved to Philly in a three-week period from early March to the beginning of April, so I had taken some time off, before and after that period, to get organized. Since then, I cooked for a mothers' day party at our tiny loft apartment in Old City, for 15 people, and it was a huge hit. I literally did everything when it came to food prep, cooking, and so on. My wife and I recently put together a fundraiser event for our dog's knee surgery. Society hill's newest restaurant let us take over the place for a day to help raise funds for our pup and local animal shelters. I took over the kitchen, and cooked for about 60 or so people, and probably put out 300 plus hors d'oeuvres, more or less by myself. We actually had a full-page article in the Philadelphia Daily News about it. We're going to be on Mary Talks Money, comcast channel 245, and NBC 10 is going to do a piece on it, too. So that's more or less my story. I hate to use a cliche term, but I do a lot of fusion. Italian and Asian, mixed with some modern American, is probably the best way to describe my cooking. For example, I called one of the hors d'oeuvres I cooked at the fundraiser as an Asian inspired eggplant Rollatini. It was thin eggplant slices marinated in sesame oil, and then grilled. Placed in a wonton wrapper, and topped with a garlic basil ricotta mixture, and rolled. After it has been pan seared for a crispy outside, I topped it with a sweet and spicy oyster sauce, and soy sauce reduction. That is probably a good example of me in a nutshell when it comes to my style. I am also excellent with normal Italian and Asian cuisine, and my modern American cuisine has really come along way. Usually, there is an Italian or Asian twist on my modern American dishes. With all that being said, I can do simple, traditional or more everyday cooking very easily. I love the farmers' market, fresh herbs, and cooking healthy. My website is coming soon, and referrals are available upon request. Feel free to contact me for any questions or concerns.
