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!

Chef and his kitchen staff were absolutely amazing this weekend at ROFCON. They were professional and friendly the entire time with the con staffers. Their food was excellent, and they went above and beyond to meet any needs that arised. I know the entire AMS department was glad to be get the food hot and delicious in the AMS floor without having to rush to get back on duty.

    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!
