John & Laurel (THE J&L) are fantastic to work with. They take a concept, add their own creative spark to it and deliver a product that exceeds all expectations. Laurel is organized and attentive, while Chef John is amazing. His flair for presentation gives a special look that adds to the taste of the food.

We recently enjoyed an exquisite in-home dinner prepared by Chef Colin Shea. Chef Shea arrived promptly and began preparing a meal for six. Our couples group chose a meal based on menu choices Chef Shea had given us in advance. From the fresh tomato basil bisque to the creme brûlée everything was amazing. Each course was beautifully presented and delicious. We had plenty of time between courses to savor each bite. Chef Shea spent a moment prior to each course sharing his culinary techniques. We all agreed that having personal chef Colin Shea cook a meal for us at home was an enjoyable way to spend a winter evening with friends. We highly recommend Chef Shea. Great food, great wine, great dinner with friends!

This was the first time we ever had a personal chef and we can not wait to have him again! We had a lot of food restrictions and everyone loved each course. He catered to our needs and all 7 were thrilled with the experience. The only thing I regret is I never got up from my throne in the dining room to see how he prepared every dish for each of us with amazing presentation. He even gave us a quick cooking class to prepare for our brunch the following day! Highly recommend!

Mike cooked a beautiful and delicious meal for our bachelorette party. He was prompt, brought all his own equipment and ingredients, and cleaned everything immaculately. Mike was a fun addition to our celebration and was courteous yet charismatic. The meal was to die for, and Mike prepared a large menu while accommodating dietary restrictions. I feel confident that every guest at the party would hire Mike again. Of all the events that day, the chef was the best! Thanks, Mike!!

Nina is a very fine server. She arrived on time, was cordial to both my clients and to me. She anticipated things without me having to ask and she followed through. Both my clients and I are very pleased the way the dinner went. Thank you, Chef Colin Shea.

Brian has come into my classroom three times to make Mac and Cheese for my students. The first time he came in I was concerned about how could he keep the students focused and interested in his cooking. He was excellent. He attended class wearing his chef jacket and brought his knives. Once Brian had started to prepare the mac and cheese, he took time to explain to the students the 5 main sauces. He continually fielded questions from the students. The questions ranged from "What is the strangest food you have ever prepared?" to "How much do you make?" Brian was able to keep their interest especially when he showed them how he chopped food. He showed the students the various knives that he uses when preparing food. Brian finished his presentation by serving the students a generous helping of Mac and Cheese. On his last visit, Brian was challenged to prepare his dish without using gluten. Brian was able to do this and still provide a delicious meal. Brian is a very knowledgeable chef. He has an easy going personality that makes your experience enjoyable. The pride he shows in his craft is inspiring.

Discovering FitMeals was one of the best things we could have done for our busy family. Chef Mykayla is a true professional; her meals are restaurant-quality, creative and healthy. She is happy to accommodate requests and dietary preferences, and has gladly made side and main dishes to help our family celebrate special occasions and holidays. Chef Mykayla usually visits our home when we are not there and, aside from the lovely aromas and fully stocked fridge, she leaves the kitchen as thought she was never there. When we do see Mykayla in person, she is extremely personable and lovely to our dog and children. Thank you FitMeals!

Sean has been absolutely amazing! I reached out to Sean to help my parents learn how to cook healthier and tastier so they can utilize nutrition to beat cancer. Sean quickly went to work understanding my parents' needs, food preferences and requirements and came through with shining colors! Along with helping Mom become better in the kitchen with the nutritional diet changes, Sean prepared meals and recipes according to our palate and dietary requirements. Sean is truly committed and passionate in his work and he made the diet changes tastier and easier to adopt. Thank you, Sean!

What an unbelievable experience Chef William provided. Not only was it more affordable than my wife going out to dinner but he prepared a 5 course meal with an incredible flowerless chocolate cake for dessert. My wife and I don't get a lot of time together with small children. But this night, we got to lay on the couch together watching a movie while Chef Willaim prepared our dinner and it was a wonderful date. The food was absolutely delicious and the best part is he cleaned our kitchen better than we do. I can't recommend him enough to anyone that wants to either host a large fun party where he is teaching you how to cook or a private romantic dinner like we did. Forever grateful T&S.
