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!

Chef Jeff was absolutely amazing. He and his assistant, Kyle, made my night as sister of the groom. We were over crowded and Chef Jeff took care of everyone and everything without batting an eye.. The food was delicious, beautiful and everyone raved. They also helped us get the champagne and cake served, then helped clean up!! Thank you so much for helping make the special day that much more magical. You will be highly recommended to all of my friends and family and I will call again for my future needs!

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 the pleasure of working with Chef Sean for an appreciation dinner I hosted for a few special friends. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Chef Sean was more than prepared with his own cookware, utensils, seasonings, and all the extras that added a special touch. He came early to my home to prep and came back later to complete the meal. Everything was fresh and right on time. I would not change a thing. He is the expert and made all things seem simple. It was a small, intimate event, however Sean gave me the same treatment as if I was a big time client. I would recommend Chef Sean for any style event. He is sure to please!

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!!

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!

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.

For anybody considering Lance's services, I can say that he's very pleasant to work with and most importantly is a fantastic chef. Chef Lance grocery shops, cooks, cleans up, and gets out of your house fairly quickly (although he is good company so you may want him to stick around). I would highly recommend him for anybody looking to make a date night/private party extra special, or to have wonderful meals prepared beforehand for you for the week.
