Amazing Caterers did an amazing job with my last minute order for 25 people. I talked to Ed on New Year's Eve about catering a party on Jan. 2nd and Ed accepted. Working with Ed to plan the menu and work out the details of delivery and set up was a breeze. The food arrived on time as promised and was delicious! Our delivery person John did a great job setting up our buffet and organizing the food in the kitchen for easy access for refills. He came back the next day to pick-up the serving racks and utensils and was as nice and accommodating as could be. We highly recommend Amazing Caterers! Thank you for making the food at our party a great success!

We loved Ed! Not only was the food DELICIOUS, but the service was outstanding. Ed is a real people person, and every visit we had felt comfortable. Ed and Amazing Caterers catered for my wedding on Oct. 7th 2016. All my guests loved the food and variety Amazing Caterers offer, and I even had the chefs checking on myself; always asking if I needed anything throughout the night. Ed also went above and beyond for us, and got us a quote and set up for flatware 3 days before the wedding when a crisis had hit! Thank you Ed, and thank you Amazing Caterers!!

Ed was very personable, professional and conscientious about trying to give us exactly what we wanted plus making great suggestions for additional items that would compliment the theme of our prom and make the experience very special for our students. The food was excellent, the price was reasonable and the servers/crepe chef were great! We can't say enough about Ed and Ann and the entire staff. We definitely plan to use them again, hopefully for next year's prom and other events. Thanks, again!!! Wills Point Prom Committee

Tony and Ken came and set up the bar early and then later 2 of his outstanding bartenders arrived and were magnificent. Thank you for helping make our celebration a HUGE success!! Our guests were very pleased with their service and raved about them being here. The bartenders were very curteous and respectful. I will be sure to hire them for our next party!!

It has been almost a year and my family and friends still are bragging about the best brisket they had ever eaten. My dad I think stalks the sweet guy they call Tater (LOL - love the name!). We must have had 20 plus catering tastings and were exhausted over bad food or sub-par standard chicken at $35 a plate. We had a huge wedding and needed good food but not costing the price of my Nissan. So finally we tried Wedding Wire one more time and found Tatering. Marc was sooooo responsive and seriously answered all my 2000 questions I had over the phone. I must have called him like 4 times. He was patient and answered them all and even offered some great ideas on my timeline. So the big surprise was the quote, my finance and I were skeptical of this because he was more like $24 a plate but it included the dishware, linens, staff and food (meal and apps). Now this all changed with finally meeting him and his chef in Carrollton ( I believe they have moved though). They were so both very nice and Marc talked with us for 2 hours again which was so reassuring. He showed us everything right there during our free tasting (yes free!!). Now the best part... the brisket!! His brisket was so incredibly juicy and not dry. Has some fat on it and comes with his signature sweet barbecue sauce with I think some kind of soda flavor in it. Ok the stuff is to DIE for!! Hubby took a bottle home with him and covered up all my cooking with it, because its so damn good. Now we had his mac n cheese and garlic mashed potatoes which are both very good. We knew this was the right place, signed the contract and paid them right there. So the day of my day was stressful until I heard Tatering arrived, I kept thinking of the barbecue until dinner time. People is was so damn good the second time we ate it and yes his staff had to go boxes made for us which we ate on the plane later. Love you guys!

I have worked with Marc for 10 years by now. He is an ultimate perfectionist- nothing except highest quality is good for him. During the years, I had the pleasure of enjoying his culinary delices as well- and they are fantastic! His brisket is out of this world- he must be cooking it for days, it is so tender and juicy! His BBQ, salads- all very complex and sophisticated, his catfish and any preparation in general- I would give him 5 stars and "cordon bleu" distinction any time!

We hired Marc for a private awards ceremony for the National Boys Scout of America. His BBQ is sensational, the smoked chicken was so tender. His BBQ should be in everyone's house and I really enjoyed the Caesar salad he prepared. As one chef (including my staff) to another we recognize true talent and all of here at WPG salute a true artist in the BBQ meats. We look forward to another fine menu prepared by him.

Luke was a true pro. Our meal was absolutely delicious and unique, but more than that, Luke made the experience stress free and enjoyable. He is there to talk and give cooking tips if your event is a bit more private, or he will vanish to the kitchen to cook up a storm while the guests chat. We had a larger party but my wife and I plan to use Luke again for a date night at home or a cooking class. Before the event, Luke and I spoke about the type of food we would have and lets just say, his repertoire is vast. You name it, he can cook it. I cannot recommend LK Culinary enough. The experience was easy and the food was amazing.

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!

This review is long long over due! Chef Cassy came to my home to cook for me, my family, and friends as a suprise for my birthday! I came home and she and her staff were already at work in my kitchen. The first thing I noted was that she and her staff were professionally dressed. I loved having a real life Chef in my house cooking for me!! I also noted that although she was cooking several dishes everything seemed to have it's schedule and the process ran smoothly. As it should since Chef Cassy is a professional chef. The food was delicious to say the least. The wonton stuffed with collards and ham are the BEST!! She also prepared salad and a grilled chicken Alfredo dish. I know chicken Alfredo seems like the standard run of the mill dish. Because to me, this dish seems standard. Enough so that, myself along with all of my guests couldn't stop raving about how hers really set a new bar for Grilled Chicken Alfredo! Even the salad which was again a seemingly simple dish was notably delicious and stood out amongst others I have eaten. As far as professionalism and interaction goes, I must say that Chef Cassy remained very professional. She and her staff stuck to what they came to do. But my friends and family being a bit more informal engaged Chef Cassy with conversation, questions, and raves. She blended very well into our relaxed environment as well. We all felt very comfortable with Chef Cassy and would certainly have her back again. I would recommend her to anyone looking for her services and suggest her to anyone who wasn't particularly looking. The whole experience was one I will not soon forget. Thank you Chef Cassy!!!

Chef Cassy was great. My guests simply loved her level of service and oh yes the FOOD!!! All my friends are foodies and are very critical. They had nothing negative to say, everything was good from start to finish. She worked clean and made sure my kitchen was clean when she finished as it was when she started. If you hire her to do a party make sure you ask for the fried greens, they are to "live" for! We plan to use her again for future events. Thank again Chef Cassy

I reached out to Jim through Thumbtack for a quote for catering our wedding reception. Within hours Jim replied with all the details I needed. Within days Jim had sent us all of his paperwork including his insurance papers, permits, menu and itemized invoice, all while we were still waiting on call-backs from "friend-of-a-friend" "caterer-on-the-side types." People who, no doubt, didn't have any of these permits or insurance or even realized they need them to work in some venues. Planning this thing was filled with indecision, date changes and even a venue change. We actually contacted 2 other cateres and NEVER GOT A REPLY. Through it all Jim was calm, accommodating and flexible. All i ever got from this guy was "no problem" and " I'll take care of it." After all was said and done we decided to cancel the reception. But I was so taken with Jim's level of professionalism and service that I felt compelled to send him something anyway. We both felt such a sense of relief and peace once we had him booked, and that's priceless. I'd like to also share one note with anyone who may have reservations about having bbq at a wedding reception, as my fiance did at first. If you're concerned that there will be bbq sauce everywhere and it will get all over your guests' hands and clothes, please don't be. Jim offers a wide assortment of meats and his food isn't prepared or served swimming with bbq. We were looking forward to serving our guests a real, bonafide, down home, stick-to-your-ribs MEAL, and not some bougie over-priced veggie platter or dry-ass chicken breast-broccoli dinner. In fact not having had the opportunity to have Jim's food was the only disappointing thing about cancelling our reception. But if his food is anywhere near the level of his service and professionalism we were in for quite an amazing experience. I will definitely have him top of mind for any event needing a caterer in the future.

Our guests raved about the food! We had guests from all over the country and everyone loved the fall-off-the bone ribs, tender brisket and delicious chicken. We also had fabulous deviled eggs and veggies. I particularly loved their warm personal touch as they served our guests. Jim and Gemma are very easy to work with and they really do all of the work, upon arrival through their exit. They clean up so well that you would really never know they were there! I will definitely use them again.

Working with Tiffaney was amazing!! I set up a tasting with her first and she came in with her sous chef and executed as if it was the actual event, I couldn't have asked for more! The food tasted amazing and the presentation was beautiful. I was doing a corporate event in a Dallas but live and work in NJ and Tiffaney made everything easy for me. She was the first one to respond to my inquiry and her responsiveness continued through the whole process. Her team executed beautifully as well. She remained calm and confident when any obstacles came up. I would highly recommend her for any and every event!! I can't wait to do another event in Dallas so I can work with her again.

On behalf of Housing staff at Texas Woman's University, we were absolutely pleased with the service he provided to our students. For our event, we needed a chef to help demonstrate a few meals that were healthy, easy, and affordable enough for students to go out and try. Chef Jared P. Morris came up with the perfect menu to demonstrate to the students. The samples he gave of each demo was absolutely delicious! The students enjoyed his personality and was quite knowledgeable about culinary arts and nutrition. Thanks to him the event went by smoothly and successfully.

Leigh is a jewel! She listened to what we needed for our daughter's wedding, and went over, above and beyond! From the cake tasting to the finished project, we were kept informed, and she even sent pictures of the cake as it was progressing. She gifted the bride and groom with a sketch she had made before painting the cake. Our theme was Legend of Zelda, which we thought would be difficult, but she was a real trooper. She researched and made everything work. The finished project, which was a gorgeous reveal cake, was the centerpiece of the reception and almost took away from the bride and groom, it was so amazing. Numerous people came to me to tell me what an outstanding job she had done, including one who was a professional chef who wanted me to let her know that she was tremendously impressed. Not only that, but we did everything long distance, as mom and dad of the bride live in Colorado and the bride and groom are in Texas. What a shame I don't live closer! She would get ALL of our business from now on, but I'm sure that the bride/groom and all of the Texas family will use Leigh for every special occasion from now on! She's also so friendly and personable, she takes an interest in what she's doing and in the family she's doing it for. Super, super job, Leigh! We can't thank you enough for the amazing job and effort you put into our daughter's special day.

Found Leigh searching on Google and she was one of the top bakers in Dallas. Her whole communication process was professional, with an extensive questionnaire that captured all details needed for her to get an idea of what we'd like our cake to be. The cake tasting experience was great! We were presented with 3 cake flavors and 3 icing/frosting flavors that could mix and match to find what works for us. She was very knowledgeable about cakes and pastries and gave us options on what would work best. As you can see from the pictures, she is really an artist! Her sugar flowers are to die for! We loved how they turned out and the aesthetic of the cake was exactly what we wanted. The only could be better was how the moist the cake turned out to be. In fairness, Leigh did warn us about possible drying because of the minimal cake frosting (by choice since we decided on a naked cake). But the flavor was great and just enough sweetness to balance the tartness of the lemon. Overall, I was happy with the cake. It was beautiful and was the sweet we needed to start the "sweetness" in our marriage.

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Chef Tony Teems when I threw a close family member a baby shower in February 28th, 2015. This new baby is the first addition to our very large family in many years, and so I was beyond excited to throw a very special shower and deliver an exceptional experience for the guest-of-honor and her closest friends & our family. My event planner and I both worked extensively for a few months to find the perfect catering partner to deliver just the right culinary experience for the event. The planner and I spoke with so many different caterers and had so many tastings, my head was spinning! At this time, I had not yet discovered Chef Tony, so as time was getting short, I elected to proceed with a different caterer. As I continued to ponder the other caterer's menu and reviewed the total price, was just not satisfied- then, I came across Chef Tony Teems' website, ChefsLikeItHot.com. The first thing that drew me in is the variety of his catering menu. Chef Tony's skill set covers a wide range of cuisines from Traditional French to down-home country soul food! He understands the delicate culinary intricacies of so many styles of food and can offer whatever tastes your palette desires. The second thing that captured my attention was his competitive prices. After reviewing so many proposals and prospective contracts from other caterers, Chef Tony's prices are more attractive, particularly for the high quality and complex nature of the cuisines he offers. Chef Tony can work within your established budget and deliver the best value for your money. What drew me in even further was Chef Tony Teems, himself. After reviewing his menu and his prices, I called Chefs Like It Hot Caterers. Chef Tony was very charming, funny and friendly, but what struck me the most was his heightened level of professionalism and can-do attitude. Chef Tony asked all the right questions, answered all of my questions, and even anticipated questions that I did not even think to ask. Even without much time left on the calendar before the shower, Chef Tony confidently reassured me that he would deliver the type of food and service that I sought. -and he exceeded my expectations. Finally, and most importantly, the food tastes amazing! Chef Tony and his assistant chef Lacarnist Hiriams they provided us a delicious, beautifully presented spread of food that had the entire party raving! The baby shower's program started 45 minutes late because I couldn't get the guests to stop eating the food, to stop talking about the food, to stop asking questions about the food, and to stop trying to hire Chef Tony for their own special events! In summary, if you're seeking: *A range of menu options that look and taste absolutely divine * To capture the greatest value for your budget * To deal with a trusted professional whose primary goal is wowing his clients * Then book Chefs Like It Hot Caterers and Chef Tony for your event right away. Bon Apetit! P. Berry

My daughter and her new husband hired Tony Teems of Chefs Like it "Hot" to cater our wedding on August 1, 2015. Chef Tony did an excellent job of preparing a delicious selection of potential items and skillfully presented them to us at a tasting. Each of the selections was absolutely delicious and professionally prepared. With Tony's guidance we settled on a menu for our wedding and anxiously waited. At our reception Chef Tony did an excellent job preparing and serving the food. He went above and beyond and provided more than he was asked. There were so many appetizers and so large a range that our guests thought that was the meal! Our guests were wowed by his beautiful pineapple fruit tree. They then enjoyed their choice of Toscana herb chicken, Chianti braised short ribs, manicotti, creamy mashed potatoes, and so much more at the buffet line. His service was exactly as promised and his food was delicious. Chef Tony personally checked in with all of the guests to ensure that their food was excellent. We wish to thank Tony for his exquisite food, and outstanding service.

Our experience with Chefs Like It Hot was extremely positive. Chef Tony went above and beyond to ensure our special wedding day met our every expectation. Our guests were very impressed with every aspect of the meal...from the appetizers to every dish of the main course. Chef Tony was also able to provide servers when we had to make changes from our original plan to serve buffet style, this was something that was unexpected and he made sure things went as smoothly as possible. I would recommend Chef Tony to provide your catering needs for your next event!

We hired Lynn to make my wedding cake as well as the Grooms cake and we had an excellent experience! She first met with us for a tasting and we fell in love with the champagne icing! The cake was moist and flavor was comparable to some of the high end bakeries we had tastings at, but her pricing is WAY more reasonable! We decided to do 3 different flavors on the bridal/ grooms cake and she was more than happy to accommodate that and even suggested which frosting flavors we should get with each cake flavor. As for the design of the cake, I showed her a couple of pictures of what I liked, which was a simple white cake with some floral and swirl piping and she nailed it! Even more impressive was what she did for the grooms cake! My husband (fiancé at the time) just described to her what his vision was and we were so impressed with how it looked when we saw it at our wedding! My only complaint would be that the cake at the wedding was slightly dry compared to the cake we had at the tasting, but I suppose such is the case with most bakeries! We were very pleased with Lynn at Bake My Day Bakery and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a beautiful cake at a reasonable price!

Wow! Lynn bakes the most beautiful and DELICIOUS cakes. We purchased a 5 tier cake thinking we would have plenty to take home and hoard to ourselves (yes, it's that good). However, we came to find that our guests ended up at the cake table just to have seconds (and thirds?) so they could try all of the delicious flavors. We barely had any left to take home. The price was great, the presentation and execution were even better. Thank you for making a beautiful cake that brides could only dream about!

Lynn was Great to work with! Only reason I'm giving 4 stars not 5 is because we didn't get a box for the top tier of our cake, luckily we were still able to make it work because we had a box from the grooms cake cheesecake, but it would've been nice to have a size appropriate box. Other than that the cake was absolutely beautiful and was delicious! Lynn is a great baker! Highly recommended, she's easy to communicate with and flexible!

I've known Carolyn for many years, and in the past two years, have been lucky to taste her delicious and skilled cuisine. Among my favorites were the pistachio encrusted salmon and the tapenade appetizer. But I've also enjoyed her fabulous Caesar salad and flourless chocolate cake. Carolyn knows how to build a well rounded and coordinated menu that is both delicious and inviting. Carolyn is knowledgeable of health conscious food choices, has a broad repertoire of vegetarian specialities, and is very accommodating to picky palates. She's also quite sensitive to those who wish to avoid starchy white foods and knows appropriate alternatives. I hope to continue to enjoy Carolyn's mouth watering creations and would recommend her chef skills to anyone who loves to eat.

As soon as we got engaged, the one thing we knew for sure about our wedding was who would do our cake! Maurice is amazing and one of the kindest, hardest working people I have had the pleasure of knowing. He also makes delicious food! He did a beautiful job with our cake and was so helpful in making our day special. My husband didn't want a traditional groom's cake - his request was banana pudding. I wasn't sure how to do this for a wedding, but Maurice had no trouble not only finding a way to make it work, but also elevating a simple dessert for our special occasion by making a banana pudding trifle - it looked and tasted amazing! When I forgot to bring decorations for the cake, he ran and got ribbon and flowers and made it look beautiful! He went above and beyond to exceed our hopes and dreams! We love Maurice and love his delicious creations. You will not regret choosing Gold Ribbon Confections!

Laura did a Fantastic job on our Cupcake tower and Cutting cake. She made our Wedding just that much more special. Laura was so easy to work with and great at giving us ideas while listening to what we wanted. We had never heard of Hummingbird cake before researching for our Wedding and now it's our favorite! When searching for a cake vendor we had a tasting with someone else prior to Laura. We wound up choosing Laura not only because her cupcakes were so good, but because she was so enthusiastic about our Cupcakes and that's what you want in a baker!

She was always professional, kept in contact and arrived on time for the big day to set up. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. She is that good! Thank you Laura!

I attended two small dinner parties prepared by Anne. Both were excellent - both the food and the presentation. One had roast pork with a Merlot Shallot Sauce, Greyere Scalloped Potatoes and the best Italian Cream Cake I've had. Another had Sauteed Chicken in White Wine Sauce, spinach with delicate baby carrots and a decadent Pot de Creme Chocolate with Chantilly Cream. I highly recommend all of those, and her services as chef!

Ms. Blankenship provided a very organized, instructive, and friendly atmosphere when teaching our 12 children how to cook. They all had a very wonderful time prepping and cooking the food.

Recently attended a party which Anne (Designed Cuisine) cooked for and was delighted with her choices of foods, preparation, attention to detail, presentation, and creative tastes.

Everything about Y's Kitchen is perfection. We hired them for our anniversary dinner at home and they were on time, professional and the food was excellent. Every course was the perfect portion and beautifully executed. We will definitely use them again!

Connor and his team first catered a party at my home for about 50 people. He came up with a great menu for my "fall" theme, he was extremely responsive and flexible, and very reassuring about all details leading up to the event. The night of the party everything went perfectly and I didn't have to lift a finger- it was the first time in ages that I have enjoyed hosting a party. His team is professional and a pleasure to work with. The guests raved about every detail from the beautiful display to the original fall cocktail. This party was so wonderful that I asked Connor to help me with my daughters Barbie Birthday Brunch the next weekend. He again pulled together a deliciously pink menu that was a big hit. I look forward to my next party with Connor and Ashley!

Not only was our food delicious, every dish was hot & neatly presented. These two were a pleasure to work with. Thank you for a job well done and making our brunch a success. I will definitely pass your business card along to others.
