The job was a surprise Valentine's Day dinner for my wife. The personal chef arrived and was able to answer all my questions either at my house or via email prior to the event. The food was spectacular and I will not hesitate to hire Mermaid Catering again.

Chef Zimmerman and Tiffany catered my summer party. I planned for 150 people and I have to say that the amount of food they provided was more than enough. The flavor was excellent and the staff was a pleasure to work with. Very accommodating; I can't thank them enough. -8/4/15 Tyrell was very professional. It was enough food to last us for days. The mac n cheese was excellent. -10/1/14

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)

    Chef Kelly, Chef Lori and their team were amazing. They went above and beyond our expectations. They worked with us to stay within our budget for our wedding, making adjustments along the way. Communication was excellent and the follow up was timely and addressed every detail. The day of our wedding, Hurricane Mathew came to town and the Yummy Goodness Team was up for the challenge. They adapted, they improvised and they overcame in order to make our wedding day the most unforgettable event of our lifetime. The water from the storm came up into the tent, encroaching on the dry land little by little. As time went on the water had taken over most of the area under the tent. By the end of the event, The Yummy Goodness Team was maneuvering through mud and ankle deep water. The bar tenders were serving drinks while standing in 6 inches of water. They never missed a beat. The food and drinks kept coming right up until the predetermined ending time. The Yummy Goodness Team did an excellent job of cleanup and packing leftovers and left the venue in pristine condition. Oh and did I mention the food was incredible ? Planning and executing a wedding is one of the most stressful things we have ever done in our lives. The Yummy Goodness Team helped to reduce our stress and make our wedding an over-the-top event that our 150 guests will never forget. Thank You Yummy Goodness!!!!!

    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.

    Chef B is fantastic! He was very punctual, his arrival to the facility made it helpful with assisting others in e.g DJ, photographer, and bartender; that relieved the stress of having to deal with it. And he did so with no annoyance, he seemed happy to do whatever was needed to make the event a success. He was also very helpful in the planning phase, as me an my husband were not entirely sure of the menu, we loved his suggestions. He gave us a free tasting of all the items before the event to be sure we were satisfied. After the event, we got nothing but kudos for the chef we picked for our event. Food was hot and stayed replenished. And we appreciated how personable he was with our family and friends. He will definitely be called for our next event.

    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!
