  2. #2 I Love This Food! Personal Chef Service

    Tony B.

    Tanya prepared and presented a simply outstanding dinner for four at our hotel in Ocean City New Jersey last night. She brought all food, cooking equipment, created a centerpiece for the table, prepared the 4 course meal as we enjoyed drinks. Combined with Linda serving, this was just perfect! The food was gourmet and very meticulously prepared and presented. We all loved it and look forward to doing this again.

    (9 reviews)

    Gwyn S.

    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

  10. #10 AG Catering

    (4 reviews)

    Brittany L.

    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.

Healing Through Cooking

(1 review)

What do you love about your job?

Cooking for others is pleasing and healing for me. I get to do what I love and enjoy it at the same time. I love making a difference in others’ lives through healthy and healing foods. I also have independence on what jobs to take and cook for. I’m also in a class at this moment for nutrition to promote healthy eating and healthy lifestyles. I haven't a disappointed a customer yet and I want to keep it that way for as long as I could!

Who or what inspired you to start your business?

Cooking for the legendary Chef Gordon Ramsey has inspired me to move forward with my career as a chef. Traveling and researching healing foods, herbs, and remedies have helped me advance in my career. I don't want to stop pleasing taste buds of hungry and empty bellies with my delicious recipes from scratch. There's nothing better than doing what you love while making money to pay your bills. I plan to nurture, heal, and succeed in this business.
