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.

Sara and her staff did an absolutely fantastic job catering our wedding in late July, 2016. The event was at a small horse farm in Rehoboth, MA, and Sara planned a menu that perfectly reflected the verdant, warm and playful atmosphere of the venue. Throughout the planning process, she and her staff were swift to respond to any questions we had and were very transparent about all of the costs involved. They were incredibly friendly and professional, reflecting a true pride in their work. The event itself went flawlessly and all the guests we talked to (we had about 150) really enjoyed their meals and the buffet service was well run. In short, the food was excellent and the customer service, friendliness and overall professionalism were superb. I highly recommend hiring Sara and her crew to cater any special 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.

Verified review

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.

I want to recommend Paula as your personal chef. I needed a meal prepared for my family reunion. I was expecting 20 plus people. I only gave Paula a couple of ideas for the menu and she went way beyond my expectations with her service. The meal was superb. Food was prepared with fresh ingredients that she hand picked from local markets. Everything tasted delicious and the presentation of the dishes she served were magnificent. The portions were generous and yet not excessive. I got many compliments from many members of my family. Paula was punctual, courteous and very professional. She left a wonderful culinary impression of her professionalism and my kitchen clean and tidy, which to me was a plus. -Juan

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!!

I've had the pleasure of working with Helga's Helping Hands a few times. She is wonderful - from the initial meeting to the event. Helga listened to my needs and I couldn't have been happier with our culinary experience. Food was delicious and the professionalism of the staff added a warm touch to our evening. Always happy to have her around!

    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.

    Christopher provided a fantastic 4-course meal for our 18 person party. He was accommodating, responsive to emails, personable and most importantly a great chef. I intend on hiring him again in the future and would highly recommend to anyone else.

    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!
