my husband and I just got married on April 24th, 2015. Chef Jeff and his team were amazing! Everyone raved about how wonderful the food AND service was. The presentation was excellent and the entire staff was friendly and personable. My husband and I were very impressed and highly recommend Cj's Catering! They truly made our event special. Thank you!!

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.

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 had such an amazing time learning how to make sushi with Talavera Kitchen & Catering. I'm not much of a cook so I wasn't sure I'd know how to do certain things, but they walked me through every step of the process and taught me so many new things that I was able to bring home to my own kitchen. The sushi was delicious and the night was filled with laughter and friendship. I would definitely recommend these services to anyone looking for good food or simply a fun experience!

From our first contact to meal reheating, Jones at PREPPED was professioal, warm, and enthusiastic. The meals are inventive and forward thinking. The quality was matched by the value and responsiveness! I can’t wait for the next opportunity to enjoy this gem of a chef!

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!

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!!

Lesley is a creative chef who makes it a fun experience to cook. She shares her knowledge about nutrition and the importance of good food to maintain your health. We were challenged with putting the family on a gluten-free, egg-free & dairy-free diet which was initially overwhelming, however, Lesley helped us come up with some delicious options.

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.
