About

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! :)

I hired Chef JoAnna as a private chef for a cooking lesson for me and my girlfriend for my girlfriend's birthday. We had so much fun! I found her website online and decided to give her a call. Chef JoAnna provided a range of options for the menu and let me choose what I thought would be a good dinner to cook together. I told her it was a surprise for my girlfriend's birthday, and she even helped keep it a secret (we were in touch over email and by text). We drove to her kitchen, which is about 1 hr outside of Nashville. She also will travel to use your kitchen as well. The menu was a 3 course Indian food meal (I chose the cuisine beforehand, she recommended some menu choices) that my girlfriend and I cooked together with Chef JoAnna's instruction. She had some appetizers waiting for us so that we wouldn't be hungry waiting for our food to cook. She took time to explain a lot of different cooking techniques (both of us were kitchen novices), so we were able to learn a lot! Once the entree was done, we enjoyed our dinner with wine that I brought. After the entree, we enjoyed dessert together. I would recommend Chef JoAnna for cooking lessons. I was able to pay for everything with a credit card. We kept the leftovers and leftover unused groceries. She was a great teacher, and my girlfriend and I were able to make our own gourmet meal. We both really enjoyed the whole evening!

Dyan presented a Lunch and Learn for our staff which was very informative and helpful. The food was delicious and offered many healthy alternatives. I have purchased appetizers to take to parties which have been a big hit! And I am a regular customer for the wonderful muffins - still trying to decide which is my favorite. Soups and lasagna are my other favs!

I wanted to give my husband a new experience for his 30th birthday and having Mr. Newsome as our personal chef for the evening was amazing. The food was great, very professional and is definitely something that we will do again! Thank you Sultry Soul for helping me give my husband the best 30th birthday. We will never forget the experience!

I had the opportunity to have Laura Holmes come into my home and cook a 3 course dinner for eight. We were celebrating my parents 55th Anniversary. What a fantastic job she did!!! She arrived promptly, had everything she needed and prepared a very memorable dining experience. The food she prepared was delicious. She served each course and cleaned her work area when she was done. I would highly recommend Laura to anyone looking to enjoy the dinner company instead of working in the kitchen. And I will certainly call Laura again!!!!!!

About

Kelmscott Farm and Food offers catering, personal chef services, and cooking lessons focusing on seasonal, local, and scratch-made food with an eye towards beauty, comfort, and community. I have been catering large and small events for many years and sure wish I had taken more photos to show you all! Examples range from a buffet breakfast for more than 300 with African Leadership; an album launch at the Station Inn featuring moonshine-glazed country ham and heaps of made-from-scratch biscuits; a gallery opening for over 50 with a themed Italian menu; daily personal chef service for 18 volunteers with the CS Lewis Foundation in Oxford, England; a book launch party for 25 with formal hors d'oeuvres and champagne; corporate breakfast for 100; "dinner in a bag" sales at the CPA carpool line, and lots else. In addition to regular catering, I run a service called "Dinner at Home" where I provide a made-from-scratch full dinner for 4-6 including a main, two sides, rolls, and dessert, all delivered ready to eat. I love a new challenge and would be glad to sit with you and custom tailor your event. Do you want boxed lunches for a picnic or meeting, or trays of small bites for a trunk show? Or, do you want to come home to a meal prepared just for you and your family? Are you interested in hosting friends for a cooking class or want a personal cooking coach to train you in your home? I'm your gal. Of course, I cater parties large and small, too, and look forward to hearing about your event.

Private Chefs of Atlanta catered my company's holiday luncheon yesterday in Chattanooga, TN. The food was out of this world! They fed a large group and were very efficient with replacing the food as it became low. The presentation of the food was just as appealing as the food itself. My colleagues and I have told our company that we demand they bring Private Chefs of Atlanta back year after year to cater our events!

John is a gifted chef. Although he is a formally trained chef, his talent in cooking goes way beyond that training--you might say it was Heaven Sent. John is knowledgeable about preparing all types of food, even fish, which is a particularly difficult item to prepare.

I have been in love with food since I was a little girl in my grandmother's kitchen. She owned a restaurant but her best food was made at home early in the morning when we were the only two awake. She taught me some techniques but most importantly she taught me to love food. I have been privileged to cook for countless impressive people and events but still believe that the love of food is the best technique.
