We recently hired Mason's Creative Catering for a private cooking demo at a home with about 20 people in attendance. All we can say is, AMAZING. From the chef's themselves, their personalities, the food, the setup, the presentation...everything was beyond what we could of asked for. We will absolutely be calling them again for our monthly events.

Mark Holden has been catering a weekly vegetarian dinner for me and 14 guests for the past 7 months. The food is always fresh, with the best ingredients. I used to go over menus with him to make sure that the meal was balanced -- in terms of nutrition, color, texture, and flavor. But now we just eat what he brings us. Chef Mark Holden can do an extremely wide range of jobs, from the intimate dinner party to large corporate events. He can do Thai, Indian, Mediterranean, French, Italian, American, whatever you want. He's a world class chef who has cooked for the Queen of England and a down to earth guy who will provide excellent lunches for school children. My dinner party is after a prenatal yoga class. I needed my pregnant women to have 25 grams of protein each. Mark didn't flinch about this requirement. Part of his vast chef experience includes working for a diet company in the UK that also specified nutritional requirements. If someone in my group has a food allergy, he'll work with it. Mark is totally reliable. He will meet your requirements and deliver at a competitive price. Anyone would be fortunate to have Mark Holden and the DINE team do the cooking and catering.

Great retirement party. The atmosphere was relaxed, food was excellent and the guest especially enjoyed the cooking explanations and demonstrations in the open kitchen environment.

Sallie is cooking for my parents. She arrived on time and cooked according to my parents preferences. She was so nice and the food was delicious. My parents raved about the food and hired her. They are so happy and I am happy that she can provide healthy restaurant quality food at their home. Thanks Sallie!

We were visiting town and had a VRBO rental house. I wanted to spend time with my kids and new grandbaby, instead of shopping and cooking, so I asked Chef DeVown to fix is several meals I could serve. He exceeded our expectations, delivering delicious, healthy (as requested) meals which everyone thoroughly enjoyed! I would not hesitate to use Chef for this or for an event! He did great, and was super nice and polite! The food was fabulous!

Honestly Chef Mark and his staff were so professional , the food and the creativity of the food was declious. He was professional at every point from the beginning to the end. EVERYONE at my daughter’s grad party was asking where did you find the Chef! All adults and high schoolers were very pleased with the food. I’m going to have Chef Mark over to my home for a girl’s night seafood cooking class in the near future!

Best Birthday Present Ever! For my 35th I didn't want to do any cooking or cleaning and Chef Demetrius was my saving grace. Not only was he prompt, he had an assistant. He prepared the most amazing brunch for my family and friends, they are still talking about those grits and pork tenderloin. Thanks so much for giving me a memorable birthday.

Platinum chef is unique. They are true food artists and if you want a one of a kind meal or catering that will have your guests talking about the food/catering for weeks later, then hire platinum chef. The aren't just your average catering private chef service. You get world class service and food and they strive at making the event you are hosting remarkable. Without a doubt they are tops and I have hired them on many occassions for my events.

Have Chef Calii cook was a gift for my birthday. She gave my wife some options and we ended up having kale salad, balsamic glazed salmon, asparagus with mushrooms and onions, three chees mashed potatoes, and crepes for dessert. She did the shopping for the food for dinner. Chef Calii arrived about 30-40 minutes late because of traffic. It only took a few minutes to have our salad ready. Chef Calii was great considering we had 2 dogs a newborn baby in the house. She started preparing everything and I wasn't 100% sure what was coming together. Eventually it came out looking good, and tasting great. She even cleaned the kitchen afterward. The one thing that could have improved the experience a bit more was for it to move a little faster. The mashed potatoes took quite a while to prepare, so there was about an hour and a half between our salad and the main course. Because of this, we weren't finished eating until after 9:10 pm. Overall, the meal was fantastic, and was even better that I didn't have to shop, cook, or clean.

My husband and I took one of Chef Win's Private Couple's Cooking Classes and was amazed!!! We prepared her Southern Classics menu. Everything was very professional from the time we arrived, as her and her staff catered to our needs and made sure that our experience was very enjoyable. The class was a great mix of entertainment and light cooking instruction/lesson, which made it a great date night activity for both my husband and I. The recipes were really good, and it was fun eating in front of the fire pit watching the sunset over the water while sitting on the patio out back. It was an all around great experience! Highly recommended!

    About

    People sharing a meal together is so intimate and personal. It is my goal to create the kind of food that inspires good conversation and serves as a catalyst to comfort. That's why I became a chef — to bring people together, not to chase Michelin stars or serve the masses. My food is simple, elegant and locally sourced — a perfect fit for your dinner party, proposal, or even if you just want a private lesson. My portfolio is available upon request.
