Phenomenal chef!!! I originally hired Chef Rob for my best friend's birthday over a year ago after researching multiple chefs in the Nashville. At that time it was just an intimate dinner for 2 at her house. His simplicity and use of whole organic foods really appealed to me. That experience was amazing so naturally when I was planning a surprise party for the same friend this year, I contacted him again. This time it was for a surprise party for 20 people including appetizers and an informal southern themed dinner. His delivery was impeccable! The food was amazing with many party attendees requesting his recipes. From start to finish, the process was easy. He worked diligently to create a fabulous menu. Very professional, punctual with his communication, and efficient with execution. Overall, perfect experience, and I will definitely be using him again!

Pam was awesome! They were on time, courteous and professional. She was able to make many of my mothers favorite recipes... and added her own personal flair that added to the presentation as I would've never imagined. I will not only use them again, but will certainly refer her to friends when they are looking for a caterer who is the perfect mix of gourmet taste, affordable, & professional.

We absolutely loved having HoneyFire Kitchen as our caterers for our wedding. Everyone at the wedding loved our food and we got so many compliments from people! Shane and his team really did a great job from the beginning and far exceeded our expectations as wedding caterers. We even got to try samples of all the food we were having in advance so we knew exactly how it was going to taste. Thanks so much to Shane and the team at HoneyFire Kitchen for all of the great food and service on our wedding day! :)

Chef Dave was HANDS DOWN one of the very BEST chefs I've had the pleasure of working with. My girlfriends and I had an AMAZING time eating, laughing & joking with Dave while he worked his magic. The fried green tomatoes were heavenly, the cauliflower mac n cheese was so delicious you forgot you were eating cauliflower! The superstar of the night was the bourbon bread pudding - it's one of the best tasting dishes I've ever eaten. Chef Dave was absolutely wonderful and beyond helpful with where to go/avoid while we were on vacation. He was even sweet enough to bring us each a matching beer cozy! I cannot recommend Chef Dave enough - you will NOT be disappointed!!!

I contacted Chef Casandra with a catering idea for a unique birthday party... an afternoon High Tea! She got right to work researching the traditional menus and history of High Teas. She was quick to respond with suggestions and took my initial concept to a whole new level! Chef Casandra took care of everything from the serving trays to rentals to the food (of course) and even hand-selected the assortment of tea offerings. Her creativity and professionalism are superb... not to mention, the food! Everything was so delicious! My guests left impressed, delighted and -- most importantly -- full! I will absolutely work with Chef Casandra again and will be quick to recommend her to anyone seeking an amazing catering chef. Thank you, Chef Casandra, for making my birthday one to remember!!

I was the one that hired Gail last minute to cook breakfast for 350 people a fundraiser for African Leadership (our previously acquired caterer backed out last minute). I knew Gail's food would be tasty and top quality - as I had had the privilege of being her roommate for a year! But she also managed the kitchen effortlessly (or at least appeared to), directing volunteers and getting food out to everyone hot and timely! We thoroughly appreciated Gail's professionalism and willingness to take on the challenge last minute.

This guy is awesome! We hired Jake to do an in-home cooking class as part of a date night and it was amazing! He came very prepared, very punctual, and was a very good instructor. In no time at all, he taught us to make Mahi Mahi tacos, homemade tortillas, guacamole, pico de gallo, and salsa verde. Without a doubt one of the best meals ever cooked in my home and now we know how to do it ! We will do definitely use his services again!

    Diane is truly talented chef and even more a lovely person. She recently prepared food for my guests at my baby shower and each dish was a huge success! The guest favorite was the Honey Sriracha Wings and Mango, Tomato, & Onion salad. She took her time and with my input planned out exactly what I wanted and really showed professionalism from start to finish. She prepared and delivered the dishes to the church exactly on time and set up the table impeccably. Presentation was wonderful and fit in with the theme of my shower. If you are searching for a Professional Chef for your next event or even a night in please do not hesitate to contact her! I will certainly be using her services in the future.

    Chef Derron helped me surprise my wife with a “personal chef” experience at our house like no other. He is really great to work with and made our anniversary night one for the books. My wife was so surprised, blown away by the service, and was able to eat her favorite which is lobster tails! I would recommend Chef Derron for any experience you have! He is very passionate and caring for the food he serves, as well as for the guest who is able to enjoy it! Thank you Chef!
