Julie was very professional from planning to execution. Great communication before the event. This was a present to my husband for Christmas. A private cooking class for 2 in our home. Julie taught and served a fabulous flavorful 5 course Indian meal. We will definitely do this again! She brought all ingredients. She used our cookware and gadgets so we could reproduce the meal without feeling we had to buy any new kitchenware. So happy!

I found Colby Paige very cooperative from our initial meeting to the final clean up, The food was as expected. It was plentiful and tasty. It required making some specialty dishes such as paella . Richard Kramer who was the chef and the person who made the paella was outstanding. He was very professional and and competent.

Nikki and Paul are phenomenal!! The food was wonderful! Our guest raved about how delicious everything was. They arrived early. They made sure things were cooked fresh, and had a beautiful presentation. If my husband and I lived in the area, we certainly without a shadow of a doubt use them again. They were professional and so easy to work with! I took a chance and have never regretted it for a moment. We wish them great success in their business!

We decided to plan ahead and order for Friday since we knew we were going to be busy and not able to cook. We ordered the family size portion of steak bites, baked potatoes with sour cream and chives, and cabbage with carrots and onions. The meal was absolutely delicious. The steak bites were very tender and seasoned just right as well as the cabbage and baked potato. My only regret is getting home late to enjoy it!!! Thank you April's Essence for making our Friday meal perfect.

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!

I hired Brittany and Rashima to cater a weekend spent at a lakehouse with about 30 friends. She provided a buffet dinner and breakfast. Our weekend was great! Her baked beans are to die for! I'll admit, my friends were a bit demanding but she kept professional and even picked up after us the entire weekend. She and Rashima make a great team.

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.

I have always loved to cook. I went to culinary school to learn new and different ways to transform the same, old foods I used to prepare into something different. My love for cooking and knowing that what I prepare is satisfying to my clients are what I pride myself on. I have been working in food service for over ten years. I cater meals for as personal as one to larger groups, to include parties and weddings. I love to see people enjoy the food they eat. My motto is "Creating something special for you!"
