Jen is amazing. I had no idea what having a chef in our home would be like, and it exceeded my expectations. It was such a pleasure to have Jen in our home, and we fell in love with her personality just as much as her food. She gave a small cooking lesson to my wife and her 10 friends for her birthday and then fed them a five-course meal. Everyone loved the food and is still talking about it. But they also loved meeting Jen, and to us, that was just as important. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again.

I had a brunch for my daughters graduation and John did a fabulous job with the meal - we were all very placed with the food and John was great to work with. I would definitely recommend J&L to cater an event!

William made my retirement party a HUGE success. I had an intimate group of people I worked with over the past 40 years from three different entities. The food was fantastic, the service excellent and when the meal was over the kitchen was immaculate. Highly recommend!! Thank you William and TJ!!

The quality, presentation and preparation of the meals I've received from Wilder Cuisine have always been outstanding. Heidi the Chef is professional, knowledgable and an absolute pleasure to work with. She is adaptable to dietary needs and restrictions, she's very personable and always amendable. I've worked with Heidi for years on a weekly meal plan and used her professional delicious services for catering many times, never with regret.

If I could give Ken 10 stars I would. After getting my quote, I assumed the quality of the food would not be good because of the low price. Most caterers overcharge for weddings, but his quote was very affordable. All of the references I got were positive, the taste test exceeded expectations, then the actual food that we got the wedding day was just fantastic. We had about 100 people in Newport from a variety of backgrounds and the overwhelming consensus was that this was the best meal they've had at a wedding and it was healthy. He made us kale salad, quinoa salad, roast chicken, veggie lasagna, roast beef, and mixed veggies. The bar tending staff he brought was great and affordable too. And he brought plates and silverware which saved us a ton. I have no complaints and would enthusiastically recommend Ken for you wedding or other event.

We had an extraordinary family gathering thanks to Stephen and his fantastic cooking. He managed to keep everyone happy, even the pickiest of eaters. Our family members from age 3-83 loved the food! What a treat to have a chef prepare a wonderful meal for us (he even cleaned up, too). We'd recommend him to anyone!

Food was amazing! She was amazing! I really didn't know what I wanted and she help me through figuring out what would work for my dinner party of 10. I also have some complicated food restrictions and she very willingly work around them. We ended up with an awesome three course meal. Most important she was able to go with the flow, if I didn't have something she needed she worked around it, when guests hadn't pretold me what they don't eat she worked around it. Everyone had a great time and it was because of the food and the service. Highly recommended!!

Don is absolutely the best home chef who has prepared full meals for our busy family. Everyone, from Mom and Dad to the kids ranging from teenager to toddler, raves about his delicious and well planned meals. As a testament, everyone would rather eat Don's home prepared meals than go out to a restaurant, especially if the meal if followed up by one of his wife's homemade cookies! His service allows us to eat fine cuisine together as a family without worrying about "keeping a lid" on the little ones at a nice restaurant.
