Having Chef Cassy cater for you is like having a good friend whipping up an excellent meal for you in your own kitchen. Her absolutely delicious and flavourful food is paired with her warm and lovely personality. We hosted 12 couples from all over the world for a weekend, and wanted to provide them with some real Texas cuisine. Chef Cassy understood exactly what we were looking at and prepared three outstanding meals full of favourites like pulled pork and mac and cheese, plus her own creations such as her collard green won tons! She was a delight with my guests, and made sure everyone had exactly what they needed. Plus, she left my kitchen spotles! My only hesitation in recommending Chef Cassy is that I want to keep her all to myself!! If you want delicious, plentiful food and a real professional for your event, look no further!

Leigh is a jewel! She listened to what we needed for our daughter's wedding, and went over, above and beyond! From the cake tasting to the finished project, we were kept informed, and she even sent pictures of the cake as it was progressing. She gifted the bride and groom with a sketch she had made before painting the cake. Our theme was Legend of Zelda, which we thought would be difficult, but she was a real trooper. She researched and made everything work. The finished project, which was a gorgeous reveal cake, was the centerpiece of the reception and almost took away from the bride and groom, it was so amazing. Numerous people came to me to tell me what an outstanding job she had done, including one who was a professional chef who wanted me to let her know that she was tremendously impressed. Not only that, but we did everything long distance, as mom and dad of the bride live in Colorado and the bride and groom are in Texas. What a shame I don't live closer! She would get ALL of our business from now on, but I'm sure that the bride/groom and all of the Texas family will use Leigh for every special occasion from now on! She's also so friendly and personable, she takes an interest in what she's doing and in the family she's doing it for. Super, super job, Leigh! We can't thank you enough for the amazing job and effort you put into our daughter's special day.

Where do I begin?!? Brian is beyond fabulous! I had a small elegant birthday party for my dear friend and Brian suggested an intimate menu. It seemed extremely complicated to me, however he pulled it off with grace and beauty. Their were 3 men there who love to cook and Brian welcomed them into the kitchen and showed them some easy tricks for difficult dishes! They were so happy. We women could have cared less as we order reservations! None of us could understand why Brian is not the head chef of his own restaurant?!? If you are looking for someone who will prepare Horseradish Sake Tenderloin for most of your guest and then a beautiful Portbello stuffed mushroom for that one guest who is vegan and display your meal fit for Gordon Ramsey, you have your CHEF! He keeps the cost of the food to minimum while serving food so tender and delicious it literally quivers as your fork comes near. His personality is so precious that he would pop out of the kitchen every now and then with a joke as we were telling jokes like a stand up comedian! Everyone fell in love with him and one of my guests wanted to adopt him --- wife, children and all!! This chef loves his job with a passion and loves doing his job with a passion. If you are not happy, he is not happy. Brian is a chef you cannot afford to pass on----if you do for someone that may be a little less by maybe $100. or so----you will miss the quality, the show, the whole nine yards. Oh! The ultra clean kitchen too!! Love ya, Brian everyone tells you hello and loves you too. God Bless.

Chef Jennifer was absolutely amazing and a pleasure to work with. I had 70 people at my house for my husband's birthday and my guests were blown away by the food. Chef J visited my home to help plan lay out and went above and beyond with the menu. Excellent! I hope I can use her again in the future!

I just started using Carolyn to deliver dinner for 5 one night a week. We had a our first delivery today and it was OUTSTANDING! Everyone loved their food and the portions were big enough that we have some left overs for tomorrow. She is great to deal with and so nice and friendly in person. If you are looking for a personal chef then look no further. So happy we connected with her!

The tasting for the event was outstanding. Such an amazing presentation on the plate of the entree. I was also impressed by the chef who took the time to serve us himself and give a detail description of the meal. Our sales contact Lisa was amazing as well very knowledgeable and professional. Will definitely recommend them to others.

Chef LaRon genuinely cares about his craft. By the first bite you can tell that he’s poured out his heart and soul into the food on your plate. His style beats massed produced food by a mile, and his quality stands up to any restaurant I’ve eaten at here in Dallas. The wide variety of food, from chicken and waffles to garden salads, shows off his array of talents and willingness to venture outside of the norm. I can’t wait until my next meal with this exceptionally talented chef.

I arranged for Cari to host a cooking event for my husband's birthday. My husband loves to cook, so instead of using her as a personal chef, she taught my husband and my mother-in-law how to make homemade ravioli and cannoli. She was incredibly patient and helpful and they thoroughly enjoyed the evening. In the end, I enjoyed the dinner. Big thanks to Cari!

Clean and Sanitary are understatements! Ryan Hobbs would never qualify for Kitchen Nightmares nor Restaurant Impossible. (He is too clean, and delivers quality products too customers) I would trust him and recommend him to anyone in need of a professional, honest and educated Chef! I have seen his work and dedication to his customers, and he puts himself into every event whole heartily. If you want a caterer too care as much about your event as you do, then hire Ryan Hobbs. He only puts sauces on the back burner, not his customers and clients. Which is more than most can say about caterers, personal chefs and event planners.

We had a delicious 3 course meal cooked in our house by chef Connor for my husband’s 40th birthday. The risotto he cooked is probably one of the best i’ve had in my life. It was great watching him cook in front of us. He was also super friendly and we enjoyed his conversation very much, We’lll definitely use his services again in the future!

Chef Leo catered our small Christmas party. She was like our own personal chef throughout the party. The food was well presented and tasted amazing. The guests loved the menu and kept coming back for more. I definitely will refer her to friends and if she is available will use her for some up coming events in the new year.

Chef Suzanne did an exemplary job catering my 40th birthday party! She made the menu-planning process easy with an array of choices, friendly feedback & no-stress suggestions, even allowing for some vegan options! Not only was the food amazing, I was overjoyed about the lovely presentation & level of professionalism from her & her staff. My friends were so impressed, one of them even used her services the following week. Chef Suzanne really upped the level of class on my big day with sumptuous flavors & a great experience that made for happy memories! Top notch food & service. Can't wait to use her services again!

About

Traveling Chef is a unique dining option which allows you to secure the services of a professional chef to assist in making your event memorable and seamless. Chef Michael will cater to any culinary need, private party, wedding, business social or holiday gathering. We feature custom hors d oeuvres, plated entrées, buffet and private nutritional meal planning. Typically, our clients call and are looking to host a small, private affair. Chef Michael will arrive and prepare the meal on-site while your friends and colleagues rave over the exclusive service. Some clients prefer a more discrete option of preparing the items themselves, in which case, Chef Michael and the client will work together to design a menu that the client brings to service after some strategic preparation by Chef Michael. One of the other unique features of the Traveling Chef is hosting cooking lesson parties. With this venue, clients plan a menu with the help of Chef Michael and host the party amongst their guest where Chef Michael provides instruction on preparing the meal.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
