Alison has been terrific to work with. We have used her in a few different capacities in the last 2 weeks...private chef for a dinner party, caterer for a holiday cocktail party and chef for delivered meals. Her food has been delicious, and she is really easy to work with. She is open to suggestions and will also give her opinion on what she thinks will work best depending on the event. She is quick to respond, always professional and reasonably priced. I plan on using her again and recommend you give her a try.

This year I found myself both single and retired. After 40 years of dining out or preparing pre-packaged Diet Food, I was at a loss as to how to cook nutritious, interesting and quick meals for one person. The delightful Bonnie Ward Strauss - with experience as a caterer, restaurateur, personal chef, and instructor - was eager to show me how easily I could cook a variety of meals for myself that are attractive, tasty and low-calorie. I took notes, creating a cookbook of sorts, filled with Bonnie's directions and hints about the best ingredients, cooking methods, and even grocery shopping. She let me observe sometimes; but also had me standing in front of her stove, making certain I could recreate her dishes in my own kitchen. Bonnie completely tailored my lessons to what I was hoping to achieve and the cooking skills I had at the time. She also encouraged me to experiment on my own and to look at food in a new way. It is obvious that she loves being a chef, and that she hopes other people will appreciate good food as much as she does. Bonnie is smart, kind and enthusiastic about cooking. I completely recommend her as an instructor. I also intend to take more classes with her in the very near future.

I never imagined my dream wedding like a lot of girls do. I always figured a wedding would be between the bride and the groom and never thought much about feeding guests or even having a beautiful dress. But, in January of 2016 I set the date to finally walk down the aisle. I had six months to plan the day's events. It seemed more than daunting to plan everything. As a woman pushing 40 with a full time career and a child to raise, having the "perfect wedding" was definitely not a priority to me. Also, with finances being an issue, i certainly was counting my pennies and not expecting anything fancy at all when I added everything up. A few months before the wedding I reached out to Danielle and Austin, knowing they were chefs and had recently been married themselves, to get a few money savings tips and maybe some free advice on how I could feed about 100 people on a tight budget. I was going to attempt a potluck wedding. That first phone call with Danielle changed everything. I let her know my situation and I laid it all out for her. Bottom line, I wanted a no frills- "just feed the people" wedding reception! By the end of that fateful phone call, Danielle offered me peace of mind in my menu choices, awesome tips on what foods go well with others and what doesn't and she even provided me surprising comfort with a particularwedding ceremony detail that I had been worried about. Her advice on a personal level and a professional level relieved me so much. At that point I realized I NEEDED to hire her officially and not just skim her knowledge for free advice! Ha! Shortly after I officially hired her, she provided a beautiful wedding menu just for me that expressed the casual feeling I wanted but added TONS of class! She met with me briefly before the wedding to go over a few more details. Even during that brief meeting I was left at ease knowing she fully understood my plans and trusted her completely. I wasn't worried a bit. A week before the wedding, the unthinkable happened. My outdoor picnic wedding had to be cancelled due to rain. Danielle and Austin were quick to make all appropriate adjustments and eased my mind about the sudden change of plans as well. On my wedding day, I was so happy to walk into the kitchen that morning and see her and Austin's smiling faces. They both seemed SO cool and relaxed. Neither one of them had that "hurried" chef look. They created an amazing spread with such elegant details that really surprised me! Cucumber-melon water, anyone? Healthy and savory quinoa pasta? Sheesh! What a TREAT! When it was time for the champagne toast, Danielle brought my glass to me with such a gracious and refreshed smile that I didn't even notice that she had been hustling as she helped serve the rest of my guests their drinks. Just pure professionalism and talent. Danielle and Austin have a unique talent of helping their client clarify their menu ideas and bring them into fruition. They took a scary and possibly pathetic wedding day and turned it into a memorable and elegant experience. Thank you guys! We will ALWAYS hire you and would be happy to recommend your incredible gifts to all of our friends and family

I began training with Laura December 2017. I have been impressed by Laura’s work ethic and sincere desire to help her clients meet their goals. Laura never misses an appointment and is always on time. I like to know that I can rely on her to be there because that motivates me to never miss my appointments. Laura is very personable, not judgmental at all, and always in good spirits. Laura has helped with weight training and with my overall fitness and health. It has been so much fun! I have had my strength and muscle size increase more than ever before! It is so nice to have a personal trainer that takes a huge interest in your goals. Laura stays constantly focused on your whole training session. I love that she is always getting the next machine or weights ready so that we can jump into the next set. Laura makes every minute of training count. Having a personal trainer is a way of life to me now. If you are committed as much as she is, having Laura on your side as a personal trainer will reap big rewards for you.

When Michael Eckert rolls into a BBQ competition the other professionals know it's just been cranked up one BIG notch! Few can achieve the flavor and tenderness Mike produces. No matter the meat, no matter the challenge, he's not only up to it but his extraordinarily prepared foods exceed expectations. Never have I known his BBQ to disappoint. My personal standards are very, very high but Mike's creations dazzle my taste buds every time I am lucky enough to enjoy them!

Alton Garcia made our wedding spread. My husband and I love Spanish food and after a consultation was with Garcia, it was decided that tapas style food would be had. There were whole roasted chicken, tortilla Espanola, whole grilled artichokes and various roasted veggies, mussels, cheeses & breads, and numerous sauces to pair with the food (think Romesco & aiolis), among other beautiful and well-thought-out foods. Our guests were amazed with the spread (we heard multiple times that it was the best wedding food ever), as were we. Garcia also made it very affordable for what was delivered. It also doesn't hurt that Garcia is a sweet man and a pleasure to work with. I recommend him highly.

As a picky eater and long time friend of the owner of Eats Creative Cuisine, I've been invited to many holiday events over the years for which he provided the food. From appetizers, to main courses and deserts; everything was simply excellent in terms of presentation, variety, flavor, quality, and freshness of ingredients. To each dish prepared, he brought his own individual style and devotion to perfection which added up to some of the best dining experiences I've had the good fortune to enjoy. Honestly, I can't think of any negatives. If you are serious about impressing your guests, do yourself a favor and book Eats Creative Cuisine for your next event. They will be amazed!

Jane is an exceptional chef, and was able to prepare me very specialized meals for a healing diet I was on. I felt my stress melt away each time she came to cook, and the meals were delicious! The variety of dishes she made was wonderful - so many things I never would have thought to prepare myself. Thanks Jane!
