Luke cooked for us as we celebrated a milestone birthday dinner for 8 adults. He responded promptly with my online inquiry and we talked by phone later that day. Luke sent me several suggested menus and we tweaked a menu that was perfect for our dinner. Luke arrived promptly and made himself at home in the kitchen. Every bite of our 4 course meal was delicious and had great plate presentation. Luke loaded the dishwasher, washed the dishes, swept the floor and had leftovers packed up and put in the fridge while we enjoyed our dessert. Having a personal chef come to our house was a gift for the birthday girl and she was thrilled!

Such a professional chef with a great personality, I would pay for that alone. But when you add a dynamic meal and the ability to adapt to any home environment, that takes her over the top! We will be using her services again.

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.

This guy is Pure Class. Brian answered my call on a Sunday, picked up ingredients next day and delivered a cornucopia of deliciousness. Came up with an incredible menu, even though I'm on a Paleo Diet. Best Chef Ever!

I have secured many Chef's to do events for me, but I truly must say that Jennifer Bajsel, surpasses them all. Jennifer is an amazing talented Chef. She fulfilled her service with great talent, professionalism, timing, accountability and personality. I never once felt stressed. My guest could not say enough. Jennifer from the beginning, middle and end performed at a very high level. I will always look to hire "Getting Saucy", even if I have to move my event date to do so. Thank you Jennifer for a job above and beyond my expectations!

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!

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 LaRon genuinely cares about his craft. By the first bite you can tell that he’s poured out his heart and soul into the food on your plate. His style beats massed produced food by a mile, and his quality stands up to any restaurant I’ve eaten at here in Dallas. The wide variety of food, from chicken and waffles to garden salads, shows off his array of talents and willingness to venture outside of the norm. I can’t wait until my next meal with this exceptionally talented chef.

I arranged for Cari to host a cooking event for my husband's birthday. My husband loves to cook, so instead of using her as a personal chef, she taught my husband and my mother-in-law how to make homemade ravioli and cannoli. She was incredibly patient and helpful and they thoroughly enjoyed the evening. In the end, I enjoyed the dinner. Big thanks to Cari!

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!

Chef Leo catered our small Christmas party. She was like our own personal chef throughout the party. The food was well presented and tasted amazing. The guests loved the menu and kept coming back for more. I definitely will refer her to friends and if she is available will use her for some up coming events in the new year.
