I hired Julie to come to my home as a late Father's day gift to my husband. I thought that she was coming to cook WITH him (my bad) and show him ways to cook a meal without compromising his heart and diabetic diet. Instead, she and her assistant whipped up a delectable chicken marsala with quinoa stuffed portobello mushrooms and braised spinach, garden salad with Greek yogurt ranch dressing and a ricotta strawberry cheesecake. It was to die for! She incorporated information into the cooking session to aid with selection of superfluous to help him with his medical issues, which was an added bonus. Now I need to find potato starch and mushroom broth. This was the closest thing to having a personal chef and better yet, she and her assistant cleaned up after themselves!

We hired Brandon as a personal chef for my wife's 50th birthday party. He was extremely helpful in putting together the menu, flexible in working with our choices, and very cost-effective. He and Ashley did a great job with setup, presentation, communication, and cleanup. The food was fantastic, from the appetizers (crab cakes in Cajun remoulade and summer spinach salad) to the entrees (fresh rockfish in a lemon dill cream sauce and steak with a red wine mushroom reduction) and the delicious chocolate cake. My wife and many of our friends are "foodies", and Brandon's meal earned an ovation from our group. Well done, and thanks for making my wife's special day extra special!

Diversity without losing touch with that, “comfort food” feel, that’s what I get anytime I eat the art of Chef Maia Jones. She takes pride in each dish she creates and the taste proves it every time. I have had the personal pleasure of being there for Chef Jones growth from the beginning of her journey. This is truly her passion and her calling which anyone could tell from her bright smile while she cooks. She not only cooks but she also teaches students her skills and encourages them to think of culinary as another route in life. The distinct tastes she creates for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are never to be compared. Even graduating to Baking Sweets sets these young chef levels above the rest.

Troy & Team, It’s not quite one month later and we are still talking about the amazing presentation Personal Chefs in Box prepared for our reception. You were able to accommodate a lovely buffet in a private home that truly exceeded what I envisioned! Everyone working the evening maintained the perfect balance of professionalism with a personal touch and was more than willing to assist with all the minute details, even with last minute particulars I forgot to discuss ahead of time. The hot and cold courses were all delicious and left our guests raving. Judging from the amount of people who told me they went back for seconds and thirds, the seafood rolls and crab cake station were huge hits!! My personal favorite was the pork tenderloin and mango salad. Fantastic!! All told, we continue to receive compliments about how outstanding the food was and how enjoyable it was not only to taste a little of everything, but also to speak to you and listen to you describe the menu and preparation notes. Thank you for being a part of our special evening. Lea & Tom Weiss (August 14, 2014)

    Thank you Ross Catering. I had Ross Catering do several personal chef dinners for me. I can't cook a lick and I don't really like resturants so when dating I would have a personal chef cook a dinner. Always had great & impressive evenings.

    Just imagine having a head chef show up in your kitchen, what a treat. My wife and I were looking for something different and exciting for our anniversary. We knew exactly what we were looking for; delicious food, special treatment and a high level of service. We obtained the services of a premier personal chef. My wife and I had a wonderful evening at home thanks to Chef Gray. He brought all the food and ingredients, all the pots, pans and cooking utensils, beautiful table setting and glassware. Chef Gray took over my kitchen and prepared us a wonderful three course meal. He was the shining example of a highly trained professional chef. He transformed our dining room into a "Five Star Restaurant" with his personalized and attentive service. Chef Gray is a great listener and takes your dietary restrictions into consideration to customize your meal. He took care of everything, assisted with the menu, cooked for us, provided exceptional service and cleaned up the entire kitchen. Thank you Chef Gray for making our anniversary so uniquely special.

    We loved having Kathi's help with our evening meals while my husband was deployed. She helped make our meal plans and organize the grocery needs, she prepped and cooked all meals from start to finish and left my kitchen spotless. She even modified her dishes to meet my vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. She helped us find kid-friendly meal ideas and always made sure they were healthy and varied. We enjoyed all the food she prepared for us and already miss her very much!
