Chef Laurie is awesome! She's so personable yet professional and takes pride in providing her clients with top notch ingredients. She accommodated my two picky eaters perfectly, which can be a challenge while planning a dinner party. Chef Laurie gave us a southern experience while ensuring our meal was healthier than the norm (without requesting). She even provided cloth napkins and placemats knowing we most likely didn't have these items at a hotel. Her shrimp and grits were outstanding and an amazing first experience for many of us. Clean up was impeccable. We didn't wash one dish or clean up anything out of the ordinary. For the quality of cooking she provides, her prices are unbeatable. She comes highly recommended. Thanks, Laurie!

We are a group of 8 sisters who were celebrating our 20th anniversary of our annual "sister trip"! Having a personal chef is something we have talked about for years. Our dear Mother is 95 and had recently fallen seriously ill. We were not even sure if we would make the trip, right up to the last minute. Renee assured me that either way, she would be right on it. Renee was so easy to work with and helped me to customize a fabulous menu! She even adjusted the time, earlier than originally planned, to accommodate us. The food was FANTASTIC, plentiful, flavorful and fresh! Her homemade peach cobbler put Paula Dean's to shame! Renee and her assistant, Matt, joined right in with us; sharing stories and enjoying the banter that only a family can understand! She and Matt were just delightful AND they cleaned the kitchen and packed up all the leftovers for us to munch on later! This was definitely a highlight of our trip and we would ALL recommend Renee to anyone looking for an affordable GREAT meal! Since returning from our trip, we have suffered the sudden loss of a dear brother-in-law and are still caring for our Mother. Renee and Matt have reached out in sympathy, caring and support! We couldn't ask for more. I will try to post a picture or two but I am not the "techy" in the family. Thanks Renee for such a wonderful meal and great memories!

I started Christine's meal plan to lose all the baby weight I gained and she was great! The meals were delicious and the convenience of the meals being dropped off at the front door made it hassle free! I recommended her to several friends that were pleased with the service as well!

Britney was fantastic, and went above and beyond our expectations. Everyone raved about her creations, with crab cakes and beef appetizers cooked onsite. Her attention to detail with taste and presentation was awesome. She and her staff were a pleasure, a great addition to our celebration, and left our place immaculate when the party was over. Yes, I would use her catering again in a heartbeat for another function. Thank you, Britney!! Mary-Marshall

An outstanding experience. Jane catered an affair for us at my daughter's school. Not only was the food prepared exquisitely the presentation was just unbelievable. Our guest's raved about the experience. I just hope she is available in the fall for an encore presentation.

The unknown is very scary when you don't know what to expect. While setting up my event (and I have at least 2 catered functions a year), I spoke with Edward a few times and I kept making changes and adding to the head count. During the entire process leading up to the event, Edward was so nice, polite and professional and very accommodating. Today was my lunch for 55 people, was suppose to be a "drop off" catered meal. Edward actually stayed during the entire meal which was fabulous! People raved about the spinach salad with warm bacon vinaigrette dressing to the Roast Beef and Orange Glazed Ham to the bread pudding and chocolate cake. The event went of flawlessly. Thank you Edward. I would highly recommend The Favored Chef - did I mention the food was fabulous?

Sherri prepared a birthday dinner with two appetizers for a family of 11 plus 3 kids. She did this in our rental home in Hilton Head. Sherri did everything I expected and was very nice to have prepare this meal for us. Sherri was on time and everything tasted amazing! My kids had to take back with them the leftover hot sauce for the shrimp and all raved about the she crab soup--she accommodated a non-fish eater and one that was gluten free. Her daughter served and set the table and was very pleasant to be around as was her husband. Looking back we all say that was one of our special nights of our vacation---we would hire her again for sure! I would love to have her all week!!

Chef Brett prepared a private dinner for a small group of friends. The menu consisted of château brian, lobster mac, and creamed spinach. Every course was paired with wine and and an explaination as to why it complemented that course. It was an amazing meal and experience. Even thought it was not a cooking class, Chef took time to answer questions. I learned a lot from the experience.

Chef Emily is absolutely amazing. I was blown away with not only the menu options and meal she prepared, but her incredible attention to detail. I was hosting a bachelorette weekend in Charleston for 8 ladies and wanted a special evening for our final night together. Chef Emily came to our house while we were out at a wine tasting and took time to update me when headed to the farmer's market, set the house to look and feel like a true dinner party, and also shared her recipe secrets! We have already recommended her to a bachelor party heading out there in a couple months and without a doubt will use her again for any and all events in Charleston. Thank you Emily. You made our evening unforgettable and we appreciate every tiny touch. The Bride Tribe

The food is delicious. Air is very easy to work with, and responds immediately to any questions. Originally hired Feast to provide daily meals to my parents...they loved all of the food. She now is catering our weekly office meetings - and everything has been exceptional.

Chef Greene you are amazing! He prepared an informal birthday dinner that was planned by my fiancé in September of last year. I was blown away. The food was so good and I had a wonderful time. He is very professional and takes pride in his work. I hope we can book again since my birthday is in 10 days.
