    Chef Antinio was amazing, the food was exemplary. Our friends were very impressed and want to hire Chef Antinio for a Christmas event for a church group. He made our simple luncheon memorable. I am very happy that we hired him.

    Chef Cassey is amazing. She is known for her fried collard greens and they are excellent! The bacon wraps were my favorite, the sliders were a hit. She and her team were polite and professional- we will be using her services again.

    We ordered two cakes and multiple mini desserts for our wedding. To put it short all the desserts are gone. Everyone loved them they were delicious and beautifully done. The grooms cake was a brooks brothers logo and most bakers said they couldn't do it but Jessica did a fantastic job on it. Everything was perfect

    Who's In Your Kitchen? Personal Chef Service

    (14 reviews)

    Experience was amazing. Hired to do Valentine's Day dinner for me and my wife. He arrived on time and got right to work. All while entertaining my kids and allowing my 8 year old daughter to help him out while teaching her things as well. Very professional. Great conversation with me and the wife as well. Entire meal was great. He even cleaned the kitchen when he was done, totally unexpected. He was absolutely great. We're most definitely hiring Chef Gary again ????

    Designed Cuisine, A Personal Chef Service

    (12 reviews)

    I attended two small dinner parties prepared by Anne. Both were excellent - both the food and the presentation. One had roast pork with a Merlot Shallot Sauce, Greyere Scalloped Potatoes and the best Italian Cream Cake I've had. Another had Sauteed Chicken in White Wine Sauce, spinach with delicate baby carrots and a decadent Pot de Creme Chocolate with Chantilly Cream. I highly recommend all of those, and her services as chef!

    Chefering, LLC

    (9 reviews)

    Hector was very personable chef with great skills and knows how to instruct which is really the key to learning and retaining knowledge. We cut carrots, onions, fresh herbs, tomatoes and more. Ensuring that you hold the knife properly is an important foundation to start cutting properly. My cutting, chopping, dicing, and slicing is much faster and efficient now. One of the best take aways from this class is to cut your vegetables in a square to ensure you have uniform shape and so it makes it easier to cut. The best part of this class was getting to try the different style knives. If you want to try a new knife, a quality kitchen store will let you hold and maybe even slice something, but it’s hard to know if you’re going to like it. Spending a lot on a real chefs knife is worth the investment if you like to cook. One good tip is that we set up a waste bowl for all of the parts we wouldn’t be using, like stems, roots, peelings, etc. You can fill the bowl and only make one trip to the garbage when you are done instead of running back and forth from the garbage, which slows your process. A well organized class, with lots of tips and instruction, that will almost certainly make you much more efficient in the kitchen.

    The Passionate Vegan Personal Chef Service

    (7 reviews)

    Besides being a talented chef, Regina listens and is willing to tailor meals to your needs. Although she offers full Thanksgiving dinners, for example, she always provides just what I ask for - a dessert, a side, whatever. Also, I'm not sure I could have done nearly as well as I did during a lengthy hospital stay if it hadn't been for her good cookin', delivered to me bedside. Regina isn't a complacent chef, either. She's always developing original recipes and offering varied selections. The Passionate Vegan can cook for you if you're vegan, gluten-free (no animal products though), or if you just want to have a weekly Meat-Free Monday. Regina's prices are reasonable, her food is delicious and she works with clients to provide exactly what they need. Win, win, win!

    Chef Becka did a remarkable job. She braved the ice storm and made the evening with such a wonderful dinner. She made a 100% gluten free 3 course meal and was so delightful to work with every step of the way. I have already booked her again for an upcoming brunch!!

    The House of Soul

    Aundrea was the best!!! I was nervous and stressed about planning my dinner party for 14. She assured me she would handle everything and she did. After we planned the menu - she did all the shopping, prepared a wonderful meal, provided the servers and they cleaned up. I will definitely use her again. She is a great chef and my guests enjoyed her and her food.
