Mark catered our small group event of about twenty people. He came about an hour before our scheduled time, prepped the food perfectly and ensured that all our needs were met. The food was of high quality and of even higher taste! I HIGHLY recommend Mark for your next catered event. He won't disappoint! P.S.: He's SUPER flexible when it comes to dietary restrictions, so no worries on that front either.(show more)

Rachel prepared a Brunch for my son's baptism that was out of this world. It was such a great decision to hire a chef instead of take our party of 13 to a restaurant. I was able to enjoy myself at the party and not worry about food. Rachel's food was amazing. She had great suggestions for the menu and everything was perfect. We will be hiring her again and suggesting her to our friends.(show more)

Food is my life. If Im not cooking, I'm experimenting, testing recipes or doing research. My leisure time is watching food programs, reading or talking about food.

My husband and I work full time, and are very very busy! We were spending way too much money eating out, and started to look into personal chef services. Maria's Gourmet Kitchen was a god-send!! I used to teach cooking classes, and am a huge food snob so I was a little nervous to order 'premade dinners', but EVERYTHING is made from scratch and amazing quality! You can tell they do an amazing job!! It all smells and tastes so fresh, I am so impressed. The instructions on the packaging make everything so so easy after a long day at work. WOO HOO! Thank you, Maria!(show more)
We had frozen margaritas and gourmet tamales at my husband's 50th birthday party last Friday. But the highlight of the evening was when Shannon rolled up in the Snowdog flashing colorful lights and blaring the theme from Star Wars. It literally created an irrestible force that sucked all our guests out of our house and toward the truck. I highly recommend this affect at your next party.(show more)

Are you tired of fast food, dining out and eating late dinners? Don't like to cook or just don't have time to cook? Picture this: you come home and though your kitchen is clean, you have inviting delicious meals waiting in your refrigerator and freezer. No worry, no fuss. Just delicious healthy inviting meals -- all in the comfort of your own home! These days, chef Belal personal chef service is a necessity instead of a luxury. It allows you to have more quality time but not compromise healthy delicious dinners. There is no more fuss about stopping at the supermarket, wondering what to pick up. There's no more slaving away in the kitchen after a long hard day. It allows you to enjoy your lifestyle and have more time to take care of the demands of every day needs. It also can save you money by no longer buying on impulse or throwing out food that has gone bad because with even well intentions, just didn't get around to cooking some of the ingredients bought. How the service works? It all begins with a free, no obligation consultation, which usually takes about 45 minutes depending on how many questions you may have. This consultation allows Chef Belal, your personal chef, to meet with you and your family to discuss your likes and dislikes, food allergies or sensitivities, and any dietary restrictions. A sample menu is provided for you to choose from, request that family recipe you just can't live without but don't have time to make, or try that new recipe you saw on TV or in a magazine. During the consultation, you will also choose how often you desire the service. Some clients prefer a weekly or a biweekly service while others may prefer a monthly service. About 3 days prior to your scheduled cook date, I will email or call you to discuss the customized menu in which you then decide if any changes are desired or not. On the scheduled cook date, I will shop for only the freshest meats, poultry, seafood, and vegetables. I then bring all the ingredients and my own cooking equipment to your home. All the meals are prepared fresh that day, packaged in labeled storage containers and stored in your refrigerator and/or freezer. I also include easy to follow instructions on how to heat every mouthwatering dish. I then clean up after myself, leaving only the mouthwatering scent of delicious food just waiting specifically for you! If preferred, delivery is available. Your part? Heat, eat and enjoy while knowing you can have healthy great tasting meals on your table in 30 minutes or less.(show more)

My name is Eric Johnson and until recently I had a restaurant set in a historical home in Old Town Katy. I specialize in primarily American and TexMex food such as meatloaf, fried chicken, chicken fried steak and pork chops, casseroles (such as beef or chicken enchilada, tuna, baked spaghetti), sandwiches and soups. I can even make tamales! As much as possible, I prefer to make everything from scratch (I roast my own meat for the sandwiches!). I also make homemade ice cream and have won an award for my coffee ice cream from the ArtReach Houston project. And I can make baked desserts including a smooth lemon meringue pie! Even though my specialty is American/TexMex, I am always experimenting with new dishes and tastes. I am also very aware of the ingredients that go into my dishes especially when cooking for someone that has special dietary needs. So if you hire me we can coordinate exactly what you want down the ingredients if needed.(show more)
