Over the last 20 years, I have hired a number of private professional chefs to come into my home and prepare food for my guests. All of the chefs that I hired were good until I heard about Chef Laurie Erickson, Chef Laurie was not good she was overwhelmingly excellent, truly the finest ingredients, preparation and presentation I have experienced. From our initial contact and phone conversation, Chef Laurie listened to how I wanted the evening to go, and she made it perfect. Our group had several allergies and she was able to accommodate everyone. Chef Laurie and her assistant arrived 1 hour before appetizers were to be served. They set the table and brought flowers, linen napkins and candles. The food was incredibly delicious and her attention to detail with the plating was a work of art. Chef Laurie was very organized, calm, cool and collected while preparing each course, She also let us come in the kitchen to watch and ask questions. The service was flawless and the kitchen was left spotless. Chef Laurie brought the downtown fine dinning experience to us and far exceeded our expectations. Worth every penny !! If you do not hire Chef Laurie Erickson you are doing you and your guests a disservice.
They were AMAZING!!! I had a caterer back out 3 weeks before our wedding of 125 guests. They were willing t o step in, work with our budget, and create a fantastic meal for the evening. I am so thrilled and grateful to them! They were wonderful!!!
Service far exceeds other restaurants. Call a few days ahead for a special food requests and they will make it happen. Great wine pairings, cooking classes, outdoor dining and the staff is friendly and always trying to assist your needs. Keep private parties in mind, through a 90th surprise party for my mom. It was absolutely a hit.
I hired Lucie for a dinner party and it was a pleasure to work with her. She offered extensive sample menus and creative ideas for the meal. She couldn't have been more enthusiastic and passionate about cooking. Lucie's food was beautifully prepared. She used extremely fresh, seasonal ingredients that had a lot of flavor, so the food was delicious without being heavy.
Chef Jane is an incredible individual with a wealth of knowledge in the areas of dietetics, nutrition and culinary skills. Classes with Chef are fantastic, fun, easy-going but loaded with information that's useful to both experienced cooks and novice food network enthusiasts.
I hired Willard Hospitality & Events to cook for my family and I while on vacation in Folly Beach, SC. Chef Zach Willard contacted me directly and we discussed our needs and menu selections. I asked for seafood and local cuisine. Chef Zach prepared amazing meals for us nightly in our rental home. All I can say is, WOW! Fresh local produce, seafood, and meats prepared perfectly. Chef Zach's banana cream pie is the best I've ever had. Amazing experience, no complaints, very professional. When was the last time you took leftovers home on the plane? We did.
4 years ago you prepared a fantastic dinner for my family and friends at my daughter Leslie's house. It goes without saying that the dinner was fantastic, and paired with great wines, but the memories you made for our family, especially my granddaughters Madison and Morgan, when you included them in the preparation and letting them help serve was an experience they still remember. Then, last year my girlfriend and I attended one of your cooking classes/dinner. It was a fun evening and we loved your new digs McKee's at 139b. Your rooftop space is beautiful and has a great view of the city. I would highly recommend an evening with you, privately, or at McKee's at 139b for a fantastic dinner and a fun night. You and Kathy have a great thing going, keep it up!!
