The chef prepered an excellent menu for my daughters' bachelorette party - dinner for 10. Very personable and thorough - my daughter (and others) said they will never forget this part of the evening.

Didn't feel like preparing a 5 course meal for my special guest in my home, wanted to hire someone that I could entrust. Thumbtack referred me to Chef Haggerty, I discussed with him my desires he emailed me his suggestions. I was greatly concerned because I hadn't sampled any of his food. Chef Derrick was just as concerned about details as I was, so I hired him. The day of the event he was on time, ready to get started. The crawfish beignets and Chilean sea bass with lobster mornay sauce were excellent, but the Shrimp and grits were to die for(and I'll challenge anyone to a grits cook off). Presentation was superb. The next day my guest and I were still raving over his food. Chef Derrick, thank you so much for making my special night one to remember and we will be working together again

Brian made my first Valentine's dinner with a new girlfriend an absolutely memorable night. Great food, wine and a very comfortable casual atmosphere. Loved his demeanor and laugh. Highly recommended and extremely easy to work with as he and I planned the menu (me with no cooking knowledge or skills) and how to ensure a perfect evening for a special woman and I.

Edna happens to be my daughter-in-law. I have experienced her foods many many times. She is very professional and demands perfection from herself on all her work. She is also very knowledgeable about nutrion and works closely with her clients to serve them to the best of her ability. Her dishes are plated so beautifully they are actually a work of art....I would recommend Edna to anyone seeking a fabulous chef and a good, professional, Christian woman. Let her show you what she can prepare for you!! I promise you will be glad you did.

Erika made cupcakes for our wedding (we substitute cup cakes instead of a big wedding cake) and they were delicious!!! Hands down they were some of the best cupcakes we ever had. I would recommend Erika to all my friends and family if they ever needed a chef or cakes/pastries. We got a ton of compliments throughout the night from our guests how tasty the cupcakes were.

I've been gluten intolerant for most of my life. I'm also a terrible cook. As a result, maintaining a healthy, wholesome diet is a constant challenge. Samantha not only has me eating well but has taught me so much about how to make healthy food taste amazing. Her menu planning and preparation has also saved me a lot of time and headaches. She really took the time to personalize her service for me. She's opened up a whole new culinary world for me, and I couldn't happier or more thankful!

I love her food and her attitude! She takes such joy in her work. She takes great satisfaction in making sure her clients are happy and satisfied. She is creative and thoughtful in her approach to food. She listens closely to her clients to make sure she understands what is needed. She pays attention to every detail. Abby put together a beautiful picnic supper for my daughter and her cheerleading squad. Everything was perfect and everyone enjoyed it. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs to feed a crowd and wants to do it with style and grace!

Chef Hannah catered my 50th Birthday Brunch Party in February, & it couldn't have been any better! The Baked Hashbrown Egg Nests were a HUGE hit! We had the most delicious Mimosas with Fresh squeezed Orange juice, & I can't stop thinking about the Sweet Potato Chorizo Fritatta & those Breakfast Sausage Cinnamon Rolls with yummy Maple icing!! She had her own, fun twist on classic dishes that made everything such a huge hit. Everyone had a blast, & she was so friendly & warm to all of us. I will definitely have her cater my next party. She cooks with love & you can taste it in her food.

Where some folks may find vegan/vegetarian foods to lack flavor, that is not the case with me! I enjoy testing my recipes with friends so I know they're full of flavor and enjoyable.

About

I've been in the food industry business since i was fifteen years old. So, fifteen years has gone by, and I'm still at it. Ever since then, I've been continuing (and will always continue) to pursue in this field. I have been working in all vast ranges of different kitchens, establishments, festivals and so forth. By doing so, I've gained a great deal of knowledge, respect and appreciation towards everything that has to do with this extraordinary realm --the realm of food; the realm of endless creativity! When it comes to what sort of food, recipes, region(s) or baked goods (artisan breads, sculpted cakes, wedding cakes and much more) that I make or could make, I have no limits of any sorts. I am very broad in my horizons with the reason being this is my being/passion: to be able to always enjoy doing something new and fresh. That's always intriguing. Chef On the Go is my catering side project that I'm invested in. Basically, I'll do catering events from anywhere between 250 a head or 15 a head. I do festivals and events as well. I had learned a lot from being the head chef/private chef for a sorority house from Monday through Friday. I prepare, cook, and make menus for over 25 girls for their lunch and dinner. With all that said, I would be more than delighted to be apart of any food realm, topic(s), situation(s) offered to myself at any given moment.
