If you are looking for a personal chef for a dinner party, do not hesitate!! Chef Shaun was incredible. He worked with me to create a customized menu for my party and the food he made was AMAZING. This was one of the best meals we have ever had and he was so personable while preparing the meal in my home. When the party was done, my kitchen was left spotless. I highly recommend Chef Shaun and will definitely call him again when I’m hosting another dinner party in my home.

To say that Chef Jacob exceeded our expectations is an understatement. Every detail, from the planning to the event, was completely wonderful! From my first conversation with him, I could immediately sense how professional and passionate Chef Jacob was about his work. Although I didn’t have many specifics in mind, he ensured that every detail I requested was accounted for. I asked Chef Jacob to make the 45th anniversary dinner for my parents a truly special experience, and he delivered. It was indeed so wonderful that my parents couldn’t even talk about it without crying in sharing their total amazement with the experience. They described it as one of the best experiences of their lifetime. I consider my parents some of the most excellent cooks I know, but they insisted that the meal Chef Jacob prepared was the best they’ve ever had, and that it was better than any restaurant they could have chosen. Chef Jacob helped me design a delicious menu for my parents’ dinner, and tailored it based on the information I provided regarding their overall tastes and likes. The menu included an appetizer, salad, dinner, and dessert, and every part of the meal was prepared from scratch. Beyond the care taken in preparing and cooking the meal, however, was Chef Jacob’s warm and welcoming personality. He did not hesitate to immediately begin getting to know my parents, and as they put it, they felt as though he was someone they had known for years. Chef Jacob even made sure to take pictures of them sharing their champagne toast. He did not rest until the entire meal was finished, and left the kitchen more spotless than when he arrived. At the end of the meal, he presented my parents with a gift basket, filled with edible and decorative delights, something that was planned all on his own and was a complete surprise to both me and my parents. From beginning to end, and every detail in between, Chef Jacob created an experience of a lifetime.

Lisa catered my party last week. She was very easy to work with giving me exactly the menu I wanted to have. The quality and preparation of the food was excellent. The presentation was gorgeous. She and her assistant, Kate, did an excellent job. Lisa also communicates before the event. I would hire her again for any type of party. My guests told me it was the best catered meal they have ever had.

I had a last minute cancellation with my previously scheduled caterer and Art saved the day with his ability to pull together a meal for our school field trip in just two days. I appreciated the quick replies, his calm and kind attitude, and the quality of the meal he brought. We were trying to focus on creating a healthy, family style lunch to encourage our kids to make more sustainable food choices in the future and Art's meal was a hit with them! They even ate their veggies :) I would highly recommend Around the World Catering if you want high quality and flexibility at reasonable prices. Thank you Art!

Emily was awesome! She took her time to answer questions and explain how to cook the different foods we had questions about! She showed us the proper way to use kitchen utensils. How to shop more affordable and healthier for our families. And to make meals that are healthy but are quick, easy and in one pan ! A huge plus when you have a big family and little time like me a mother of 5 and 4 of them are boys always on the go! Thank you so much Emily can't wait to enjoy the next class with you !

Mark and his team did an amazing job catering our wedding reception. I needed a gluten free meal which would have made the planning more complicated with most caterers but it was anything but stressful with Mark. From the beginning, everything was customized. During our first meeting we sat down and talked about our vision and our likes and dislikes. Instead of having a separate meal set aside for me, he worked with us to create a menu that was entirely gluten free. He took our discussions and turned it into a menu options for us. We worked together to tweak the final menu until we had a meal that reflected our tastes and needs. On the day of the wedding, Mark and his staff were great. He had an abundant spread set up on our table so that we would not miss out on our appetizers. His staff made sure that we had everything we needed. We could not recommend Mark more highly, especially to those with dietary restrictions. One would be hard pressed to find a caterer who cares more about his clients and creating a magical event for them. Thank you Mark for a great evening. Kim

The Traveling Chef catered our wedding and rehearsal dinner. His food was to die for! He was very professional and the food was like eating at my favorite restaurant! After my wedding, I called and booked him to take some cooking lessons. Money well spent!

I used GLM for a recent retirement party for family and friends. Melissa is just great to work with for ordering, pricing and the food preparation. She was professional and pleasant each time we interacted and quick to reply to all my requests. My group thoroughly enjoyed the food we had and I would recommend her to others for group gatherings. I especially liked that the food was prepared in a healthy and appetizing way. Thank you Melissa for all you did to make our day special.

Strictly Business Catering recently catered a Bridal Shower at my home. Clinton Bleil was very accommodating and met all of my needs. The food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. Stacie was the staff person who remained at my home throughout the shower. She was absolutely excellent. I was able to enjoy the shower and be with my guests while Stacie prepared and served the food, she served drinks and collected used glasses and dishes which she loaded into the dishwasher. She cut and served the cake as well. Stacie also placed leftovers in containers to be refrigerated. I will definitely contract STRICTLY BUSINESS CATERING again.

I had the best experience ever with the Twisted Apron! I used them for my daughter’s graduation party at my home. My guests are still raving about the beautiful presentation and absolutely delicious fare Christy (and Andrew) provided for my daughter’s graduation party. And the service was fantastic. I had never used catering services before, and researched a number of caterers for a while. They all charged more and provided less. I’m so glad I went on Thumbtack and found Christy! A+ on: responsiveness/attention to detail; professionalism, keeping a super-calm atmosphere; beautiful presentation; accommodation of specific requests; delicious yet uncomplicated food (as requested); providing tents/tables/chairs; arrival time & set-up, take-down etc. I truly could go on & on.

The meals prepared by David taste great and follow my dietary restrictions. I don't have much time to cook let alone shop and prepare meal ideas that fit my needs. David's service takes care of all of this for me with great service and quality.

Jake was extremely easy to work with, and went the extra mile to accommodate my needs for my sister. He even took pictures to send me of the meals he would be delivering which was so thoughtful of him. My sister said that the two meals she had were easy to microwave, and they were both delicious. I definitely will be calling him again in the next couple of weeks.

Amicia did very well serving the customers. She was polite and she was fast on getting what they ordered. Amicia made sure her customers were satisfied with everything. Gibson's is the best soul food restaurant I've been too. There are a lot of different food choices to chose from. Their food is fresh and delicious. I would recommend Gibson's to whom ever needs catering service or just want a meal to go :) :)

I hired Tony to cater a dinner party (10 people). I was quite specific in my request with regard to selection, quality, and allergy restrictions. Tony and Jeff far exceeded my expectations. The food was outstanding. The service was first class. Their professionalism was exactly what I was looking for. Tony and Jeff took care of everything from food preparation to clean up. I was thoroughly impressed.

    I have used Beth's business for both film set catering and personal parties. Everything she prepares, from appetizers to desserts, is amazingly delicious. And, just as important, her service is fantastic. She brings everything you can possibly need, delivers it on time and displays it beautifully. She is simply a joy to work with. Her menu planning is meticulous, offering so many choices, it's hard to choose. And did I mention delicious? I can't recommend her highly enough!
