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!

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.

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.

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!

Kelly is an amazing chef and very accommodating and dependable. Her passion for cuisine is evident in each meal. We used Kelly’s services for about 6 months on a weekly basis. She is kind, courteous and above all a talented chef! My husband and myself were on a very strict diet and her meal prep and delivery made it easy to follow and tasty! Kelly will be filling a hefty dessert order at our corporate Christmas party this December. If you’re looking for a talented chef that really cares about her craft and clientele...the search is over!

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!

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.

Chef LaBome cooked an awesome multi-course breakfast for my wife's 30th birthday right in the comfort of our home. She was very responsive and did everything she could to ensure the surprise breakfast was everything I envisioned. We especially enjoyed her red velvet waffles and her fried chicken. I would absolutely book her again and highly recommend her services.

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.
