I hired Anna to cater a baby shower I was hosting for a friend. She was so easy to work with and flexible with menu choices. It was my first time hiring a chef and she made the experience awesome and I definitely would hire her again. She provided tasteful decor to accompany the table and the food was wonderful!Jul 1, 2015VerifiedChiquiChef, LLC's reply
Thank you Meera, its been a pleasure. You have a great eye for an amazing baby shower decor!
Chef Anna did an incredible job catering a wonderful culinary experience in my home for 25 friends. We had some dietary restrictions such as dairy free and gluten free and she curated a delicious menu that satisfied everyone's needs. She was also a pleasure to work with throughout the process - responsive, creative, and extremely professional. I look forward to working with her again.Oct 19, 2016
I love working with Anna. Her menus are creative and always delicious. In addition, she makes the entire process so easy as she brings everything with her and cleans everything up allowing you to focus on your guests. She has a great personality and is never an intrusion when she is creating her masterpieces in the kitchen. I have used her multiple times now and plan to use her for any and all future catering events!Jul 10, 2015ChiquiChef, LLC's reply
Ali you are too kind, its always a pleasure catering for you and your husband!
Anna Stewart is a marvelous chef and my guests were so impressed with the menu. They exclaimed about the presentation and said it all melted in their mouths. Anna went above and beyond with her preparations and putting kitchen back in place before leaving. Many, many thanks to Anna. Fay TaylorSep 7, 2016VerifiedChiquiChef, LLC's reply

Anna visited my home to scope out the kitchen beforehand, kept in communication with me throughout the planning period, offered various alternatives to accommodate different tastes and allergies, and came in at the estimated budget. Fantastic experience for my friends and I.Aug 15, 2015VerifiedChiquiChef, LLC's reply
