Luke had a prior engagement, but sent Roger to take care of my Halloween party. Roger was amazing. He was very friendly, polite and professional. He never stopped the whole evening and into the night. He asked very few questions and just went about his work quietly and professionally, but yet was still always friendly and extremely helpful anytime anyone was around him. The food he prepared not only tasted delicious, the presentation was great too! My guests went on and on about how great the food was and how nice Roger was, even asking me for Roger and LK Culinary's information. He even stepped in to mind the bar while my bartender stepped away for a moment. When he left, my kitchen and everything looked like he had never even been there. I would highly recommend Roger and LK Culinary for your catering needs, and I can't wait to plan another party so I can have Roger over once again!
This review is long long over due! Chef Cassy came to my home to cook for me, my family, and friends as a suprise for my birthday! I came home and she and her staff were already at work in my kitchen. The first thing I noted was that she and her staff were professionally dressed. I loved having a real life Chef in my house cooking for me!! I also noted that although she was cooking several dishes everything seemed to have it's schedule and the process ran smoothly. As it should since Chef Cassy is a professional chef. The food was delicious to say the least. The wonton stuffed with collards and ham are the BEST!! She also prepared salad and a grilled chicken Alfredo dish. I know chicken Alfredo seems like the standard run of the mill dish. Because to me, this dish seems standard. Enough so that, myself along with all of my guests couldn't stop raving about how hers really set a new bar for Grilled Chicken Alfredo! Even the salad which was again a seemingly simple dish was notably delicious and stood out amongst others I have eaten. As far as professionalism and interaction goes, I must say that Chef Cassy remained very professional. She and her staff stuck to what they came to do. But my friends and family being a bit more informal engaged Chef Cassy with conversation, questions, and raves. She blended very well into our relaxed environment as well. We all felt very comfortable with Chef Cassy and would certainly have her back again. I would recommend her to anyone looking for her services and suggest her to anyone who wasn't particularly looking. The whole experience was one I will not soon forget. Thank you Chef Cassy!!!
Chef Jared came through for me BIG TIME! I called him on a Tuesday night at 6:00pm for a catering event on Wednesday at 11:30am for 35 people! Chef Jared came through with BBQ none the less. We had so many compliments from our customers on the food alone. We have his number now and we will definitely will be using Chef Jared for all of our business events along with some personal events.
Amazing, scrumptious, flavors that melted in your mouth. Everyone raved! Thank you, Fancy's Personal Chef Services for your talents, love and making our reception incredibly memorable with amazing food!!
After requesting a very customized order and twice a week personal delivery, I wasn't sure I would be able to find a personal chef without paying an arm and a leg. I was delighted to find Brian, who read my request, gave me a call to clarify, and was able to oblige to my specific needs to the tee without huge expense. His flexibility, communication, artistry, and professionalism was second to none. On top of that he's a very pleasant guy. He's my #1 for any future events or gatherings requiring an independent chef.
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!
Are you starving for real, healthy, nutritious food? Are you hungry for more time with your family and less time in the kitchen? Then you are like me. Well, I mean, I was like that. Then I found Katie Manna and her amazing culinary skills. It was at my surprise birthday party when I first met her and tasted her scrumptious food. Such a variety of delectables and the presentation was fabulous! Since then, 5 years ago, I have hired Katie to be my family's personal chef on a regular basis; weekly and sometimes daily. She plans, shops, and cooks. She caters to us individually; vegetarian for me but meat for my sons, and always organic. She is professional, friendly, and knowledgable in her craft. I highly recommend Katie and her cuisine.
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!
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 Roger provided one of the best experiences for my wife's birthday dinner party. All of my guest raved about the food. The service was impeccable. Everything was timed out perfect. I highly recommend anyone who is looking to hire a professional chef for a private event to strongly consider Chef Roger. We will be using Chef Roger again.
I can't say enough good things about Provisions Catering (Kim)! Our guests could not stop talking about the amazing food, as well as the presentation. Kim and Carly arrived a few hours early and set everything up before the guests arrived...it was beautiful. They continued refreshing and cleaning all night. At the end of the night, everything was packed away into containers, dishes were done, and my kitchen was once again spotless. If you want a caterer that delivers everything promised and more, choose Provisions!
What a professional woman, super friendly and THE FOOD my goodness I have never had chicken and waffles before heard about it but never tasted it. The chicken alone was amazing , if only Ashtian Beck could be my personal cook everyday Mmmm mmMmm so good. Great job!!
I struggled to put meals together on work nights. Having 3M prepare my meals is the best idea I ever had. The portions are great and the food is flavorful. You can tell that the chef really enjoys what she’s doing evident in the overall quality of service.
EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS....Griffs Catering is AWESOME!!!! I used Griff's Catering for my Daughter-in-Law's Baby Shower on July 12th. They were the first to respond, presented a sample menu based on only a few details I had shared, and that menu was perfect for what I had in mind. I wanted all to be perfect and they calmed any "fist time customer fears" by providing references that I could call and were pro-active and responsive all thru the process. I worked with Darcy for the planning and she was a shining star in assisting with all the details, making suggestions, and efficiently handling all adds and changes that I made thru the process!! The end result was SPECTACULAR and truly exceeded all expectations!! They came early, which made this hostess feel very confident.... set up was seamless, the presentation was beautiful and the best part...the food was amazing!! All of our guest raved about the food and said hands down, it was the best Baby Shower they had ever attended! Thank you Chef Nick and Darcy for making Baby Enzo's Shower the absolute best!! P.S. Baby Enzo arrived early on July 23rd, Happy, Healthy and we look forward to using you for future family events!! I know my guest will be contacting you for their catering needs as well!! A thousand thank you's!!!
LOVED that all the details you forget when planning were a part of the program. I think the best part was managing all the emotional mind struggles. Like how to decide who to invite and not invite. When I was thinking about the whole process I was so overwhelmed. Wedding Planning Unzipped broke things down into do-able pieces. Especially the monetary portion of a wedding. WHOA! I'm not one to take out loans just for a wedding. I'd like to think of myself quite practical and for me this program aligned with my personal beliefs and views. Step by step, that was the main theme in all of this. It was helpful in that I had never planned a wedding before, to be honest I don't want to have to again. This was a great way to get what I wanted when not even having a clear vision of what I wanted. I wasn't one of those girls that planned my wedding out by the time I was 10yrs old. Yet I had an idea of being classy and elegant with simplicity. So reasonable and so worth it. Plus don't have to deal with everyone else's input!
The chef is very professional and truly has a passion for cooking. There is a lot of thought placed each dish. Definitely not your average Joe!
Did a great job with our menu for our wedding. When we told me what we envisioned he ran with it and had some great ideas. His food is amazing, we got Scottish eggs and they were the best we've ever had. The Chicken and waffles were amazing as well.
A consuming passion to use the best ingredients and to make people happy Versatility
I'm a certified executive chef (ACF 2000). I have over 25 years in the "biz." Spending 13 years in Colorado working at the top restaurants, clubs, and the Denver Athletic Club. Here in Texas, I was the executive chef at Mignon in Plano. I have been hosting personal chef events while working for the past 10 years. I do anything, from dinner for two to black tie/New Year's event for 60 people. I offer French, Mediterranean, American, Italian, and Asian cuisines; BBQ; your family recipes; and anything you can imagine or want to duplicate. Also, I prepare some pastries.
My wide array of catering, food and beverage as well as mixology experience with over 20 years in multiple states includes mall grand openings, weddings, graduations and church social events.
My profession is also my personal lifestyle. I hold a moral obligation to what I choose to output to others. Growing food for my family has a huge effect on the way I see the industry and where it has lead the family priority in this country. I don't believe in compromising safety or quality with price. In the long run we will pay for what we put into our bodies, one way or another! The ability to be a creator every time I turn on the kitchen lights.
