Reviews for Houston personal chefs

Chef Roy was very professional, skilled, and pleasant to have in our home. I hired him to prepare a private dinner for my wife and I on Valentine's Day. The entire meal was excellent and the evening was lovely. I highly recommend Chef Roy to those considering his services as a personal chef.

On August 28th, Chef Claudia prepared a wonderful meal for my mom's birthday lunch. Everyone loved how professional and friendly Chef Claudia was and how amazing how the food turned out. Words couldn't express how happy my mom and guest were on that evening and I owe it all to Chef Claudia. I am currently working on a blog post that will feature Chef Claudia personal chef experience with my family at www.frmnytotx.com. The post will be released in early October. Thank you again, Chef Claudia, hope to work with you soon.

On my 8th wedding anniversary I hired Chef Roy to provide his services as a personal chef in my home. Chef Roy was punctual, pleasant, helpful, professional, personable, patient and and all around joy to be around. He prepared an awesome meal for my husband and I to no only enjoy but experince, taking special caution for someone with a picky palet, like myself. I am definitely looking forward to enjoying another meal in the near future prepared by the amazing chef Roy .

It was our first time with a personal chef and it was a great experience. He even left us with some of his cooking tools! (On accident, but If you want them back we may have to trade for chocolate mousse!!)

Roy is an absolute life saver, literally. I needed to find a personal chef for my 86 year old father in law who has one kidney and is facing some medical challenges. I was determined to find a chef who understands the medical needs and who has the culinary chops to cook AND deliver delicious and nutritious meals. Roy goes above and beyond his role as a chef by taking time to listen and make sure my father in law is pleased with his meals. I live out of town and can't express enough how invaluable, delightful and professional Ron is. Lastly, he is working directly with the Nephrologists' registered nutritionist to receive feedback and her approval on the menus. Too good to be true? He is.....don't hesitate to use Roy for any personal chef services. I am so thankful to Thumbtack, too. With confidence and extreme satisfaction, katherine b.

Our family is trying to eat healthy; and this type of service helps keep us on track. It's better than My Fit Food because it's more variety on the food options. Plus, it's the convenience of having a personal chef prepare the food in your home.

It was my first time going with a personal chef and my family had such a great experience! She worked with me on the menu and was really professional throughout the entire process. The food was delicious - we had brunch for about 20 people and everyone loved it! Will definitely be using her services in the future.

Good chef, efficient, orderly and prompt. A very pleasant person who tried to listen to our stringent requirements. We should have written out a monthly menu according to our personal tastes and pallets to see if it was a match. We would definitely use the service for large catering events in the future.

Thorough review- tasting and actual event. I had the pleasure of hiring Chef Roy for my first personal chef experience for my Wife and I's anniversary. Based on his great reviews and thorough quote response, I decided to request a tasting for his shrimp creole. Chef Roy arrived on time, professional, and seemed to love the art of cooking. I didn't think I would finish the generous sample tasting (free of charge BTW) but by the time we finished chatting, there was no more to take home! Fresh shrimp and vegetables. I hired him right on the spot and we began shaping the menu. I wanted my wife to have a little bit of everything, so I ordered his crab stuffed mushrooms, seafood gumbo, shrimp creole, and three desserts. The day of the event, Chef Roy arrived 1.5hr ahead of scheduled dinner time to prepare. He allowed us to have personal conversation while he prepared our meal which was great. As a complimentary thank you for our business, Chef Roy prepared boudin balls as an appetizer. Sooo good! Sadly, we didn't have room for desserprofessional! comment on that! We plan to eat it tomorrow :) He used gloves and lightly cleaned as he went along. Very personable, yet professional. Great experience!

I decided to hire a personal chef for my son in laws birthday as a surprise on Mother’s Day of all days. I was quite surprised when Chef Linda responded that she was available on such short notice on a busy Sunday AND could work in our budget. She was super enthusiastic and communication was great. My son in law was, as my daughter shared, “blown away”. As requested, Linda grilled some burgers with a light salad and sweet potato fries. They sent pics and it looked yummy. They commented on how much they liked her personality as well. I bet she is a repeat for them and their friends.

Chef Lionel and his server did an outstanding job as a private chef for my wife birthday dinner. We normally entertain with one of us doing the cooking and this time we wanted to enjoy time with our guest so we hired a personal Chef. I was prepared for him to have prepped all the food in his own kitchen and just reheat for us, but was pleasantly surprised when he did all the work from scratch right in front of us using local ingredients. He is very personable and professional and we and our guest love the show, the conversation about the local food and the meal was 5 Star restaurant quality. They served, bus and left the kitchen spot less after it was all over. If you have never done anything like this, I would highly recommend you do and also use Chef Lionel. The price would have been about the same as taking all our guest to a very nice restaurant.

AJ is a great personal chef! He's really taken to time to understand my tastes in food and has tailored the dishes to satisfy my palate. All of his meals are very healthy and fresh. He's made the best salmon that I've ever had, the greens and vegetable are fantastic, and the deserts are incredible. I always look forward to trying AJ's new dishes.

A review that is long overdue!.. A most sincere thank you to Monster Food Stuff for a truly wonderful evening that very quickly planted itself as an unforgettable memory in our family's minds. I hired MFS to cook and cater for our parents 50th Anniversary. I was born in Houston, however I have been living in Europe the last 16 years. I'm a choreographer/director/foodie. Being that I love food and work a lot with people/crowds, timing and spacial organization I felt I took a risk by choosing a "random" chef from a website (thumbtack) I had never heard of for our parents Anniversary. Everything was just perfect! The food was great. The personalized menu was a refined and unexpected detail. The presentation of the plates was beautiful. The selection of Cheese,wines,and bubbly was spot on and the overall professionalism and ease of our chef matched with his down to earth manner was refreshing. It had all the elegance and taste but without the pretentiousness that one might find when hiring a personal chef. I had already organized my own cookware,linens, and cutlery so I can not comment on MFS's items, however basing it off of the overall aesthetics and quality we experienced Im sure it is fine. Thank you again Monster Food Stuff!

We have used Kevin twice, once for a formal sit down birthday dinner for ten and for a party for 30 people. We were very pleased with both events and will definitely hire Kevin again. Both events were in our home. It was so nice to have an occasion and leave everything to Kevin. He was on time and brought everything that was needed. He did everything from unloading and setting up to clean up afterward. He wouldn't even let us help him unload his car. The only thing we provided was our dinnerware, plates, crystal, and flatware, but that was our choice. He does provide those things, if you prefer. Kevin's food for both occasions was excellent. Everyone loved the food and some guests asked for Kevin's contact information. It is also so much fun watching Kevin cook! Kevin is very versatile in food that he is able to prepare and very flexible in planning a menu. He really works with you to come up with a menu of which you are totally satisfied. He is flexible throughout the evening and does not mind you being in and around where he is cooking. At both events, people were gathered about the island watching him and asking questions. Kevin cleans up everything before he goes and leaves any leftover food. He is very professional. What more could you ask for? We highly recommend Kevin as a personal chef for your event.
