From the first phone conversation with Mike Watson I knew our evening was going to be great. He was very professional but so easy to work with. When the night came both Mike & Derek showed up with tools in hand and ready to entertain. Our friends were very impressed as were my husband and I. Mike & Derek were fun and invited us to test taste what they were preparing. We all discussed restaurants and downtown Chicago. Theyre background experience is just so off the charts. Who wouldn't want these two in their home cooking for them. Price was very reasonable and the food was outstanding. Good time was had by all and I'd definitely hire them again. Thanks Mike & Derek for making my lifetime wish such an enjoyable one. Patti Limbach

I have to say that the food is amazing. I’m on the hcg diet and cater 2 u (Mike Watson) has made the 500 calories a day amazing. All the meals are packed with flavor and he made sure they stuck to the 500 calories a day. Meals were proportioned and numbered. I could not have done the HCG Diet with him. I would recommend him to anyone. I will be using him after the hcg diet as well. The food is that good!!

To say that Mike and Derrick were amazing would be an understatement. They are friendly, personable and very talented chefs. The food was fresh, cooked perfectly and delicious beyond delicious. The presentation was gorgeous and they even cleaned up after. Highly recommend these guys and will definitely use them again and again.

I had several unique requests (no salt, no cilantro). He made a fantastic meal within those guidelines and even the salt cravers loved it. The presentation was lovely, the service was fantastic, and the dishes were all cleaned and put away. My kitchen looked as clean when he left as before he came. The staff was friendly and professional. I hope he will cook for another occasion in my home and I would recommend him to anyone.

Chef Aram was AMAZING. Very professional and the food was the BEST I've ever had. He individualized our dinner and was open to cooking exactly what we wanted--healthy, clean but still very flavorful. His plating was perfect and everything was cooked to perfection. We would use him again and again.

My experience with Chef Aram was A+++. Chef Aram did a cooking demonstration and cooked dinner for a small group for my wife's birthday. The food was fantastic and the cooking demonstration was a huge hit with my wife and her family. We will definitely be using him again!!!

Contacted Chef Carol to do an after work networking event and cocktail party for 100 people. She presented a selection of menu items that would work within a very short period of time from out initial meeting. On the day of the event she arrived promptly with all the supplies needed and handled every detail perfectly. We received raved reviews from the attendees about all the food but especially the flat breads. Chef Carol took care of all the clean up also and let the event spotless as well. A true professional who delivers quality food, we cannot wait for our next event to hire her back.

Sorry about being a little late to review, but Carol is outstanding. We used Carol to prep and cook for my son and his wife's baby shower at our home. Carol came to the house the day before and did the prep work and cooked for 70+ people on the day of the shower. She was punctual, professional and efficient. We would recommend her and cannot wait for our next event to use her again.

My husband and I hired Tracy to prepare two dinners per week, to be dropped of at our River Forest home. Her recipes are outstanding and the food is very fresh and seasonal. The meals include a salad w/homemade dressing, along with the main course and different side dishes. Plus, Tracy is an extremely nice person who was on time, with all the items and directions clearly labeled. We were very impressed and will definitely call her again.

Tracy cooked some great & fabulous meals for my husband & I. She helped with entertaining. She worked for us abt 10 yrs. She took us around the world by just staying at our kitchen table. Everything she cooked was delicious, appetizing & nutritious. She is very easy to get along with & always willing to help. I am moving to Florida & will miss her terribly. Ricki Parkes, Chicago, IL

We hired Tracy to provide two dinners per week. I decided to let her "surprise" us with each meal. To say the least we have been more than pleasantly surprised with the quality, creativity, and heart that goes into every meal. Hiring Tracy has made meal time less stressful - best thing we ever did!

Sandra has cooked for me twice and I can tell you, this woman knows her craft well! I am impressed by each opportunity I have had to taste her food. My first meal was a delicious collection of delectable ham, smoked turkey collard greens, corn bread, mac and cheese. I was in heaven. The ham was perfectly balanced (not overly salty), the collard greens had the right touch of smokey goodness with delightful chunks of turnkey meat and the mac and cheese...wow! Nice crispy baked goodness with smooth rich and creamy cheese goodness. The corn bread was the topper. I had to share with a friend so they could taste but then immediately thought, "I'll have to get more!" The second meal was a delicious spaghetti dish with garlic bread and a delicious salad. Wow again! The meat was in generous form here - a mix of quality ground beef and Italian sausage. I was in heaven! The sauce was delightfully balanced- flavorful and zesty but again, not salty! The garlic bread! I had to ask her how she made it because it was infused with flavor. Simply but delectable! The salad was not your lettuce and a few veggies affair. It was kale-based with chunks of apple, tomato, onion and many other favorites of mine. Truly, a dish that could be so bland and boring turned out to be another delight. Sandra asked me what I liked prior to cooking and did she deliver. Her use of spices is amazing. I keep going back to balanced and it is true. The flavor profile was amazingly great! I highly recommend Sandra. Not only does she deliver on the promise of making tasty food from the heart, she is a great teacher (she explained to me how to make the garlic bread her way) and she's a quality person. A delight on all fronts!

I've known Sandra for years! It has been my pleasure to enjoy her delicious cuisines. One of the perks I've enjoyed is watching, learning, and best of all, tasting her exquisite creations. From southern down-home comfort food to health conscious light fare, Sandra does it all!! I'm impressed by how easy and fun she makes it look. From prep to the finishing garnish, the experience is memorable; and did I say deliscious? I highly recommend Sandra and her culinary skills to anyone looking for great food and fun times!

Southern Spice provides that unique flavor that reminds you of recipe's GrandMa would put together and satisfy the entire families appetite. I highly recommend if you have a taste for authentic home cooked food!

I found Chef Robo (Rob) after searching online for in-home cooking lessons in the New York area. Rob got back to me quickly and we scheduled a class for the following weekend. On the day of the class, he met my husband and I at our house, where the three of us sat down and settled on a menu. Rob gave great guidance and plenty of options. We then went shopping together for ingredients at a local supermarket, where Rob gave advice on how to select for best quality. Once back home, Rob started with the basics we needed including knife skills and how best to prep one's work space. We both found Rob extremely easy to learn from and very patient with novices. He taught extremely useful tips and shortcuts throughout. By the end of four hours total, we had learned how to make an excellent holiday dinner including two appetizers, two mains, and two sides. We got so much out of the class, we took a second with Rob soon after! A week or so after the classes, when my husband and I were preparing the meal for our party, Rob answered several follow-up questions we texted to him. Then, Rob followed up with us to ask how the meal turned out. The food was a huge hit, everything from the apps through to the main meal really impressed our guests! Rob greatly raised our cooking abilities and confidence, and I highly recommend his classes.

Amazing! Chef Rob and his wife LJ were just amazing. We surprised my wife with an anniversary dinner and everything was perfect. The food Chef Rob prepared was something you would get in an upscale restaurant. Everything was full of flavor and cooked to perfection. I am a picky eater and I ate everything! LJ even brought crayons for our son to play with and watched our kids while we ate. The service was phenomenal. They were both very personable and great conversation during dinner as well. If you are looking for a top quality Chef, Rob is your man. I woukd highly recommend him for anything from a quiet dinner like ours or a bigger party. Oh yeah, get the tres leeches empenadas as well!

Stephanie had personality and was really fun to work with. From doing these events in the past I was expecting a mess and a long process but she made everything go very smooth and cleaned throughout! I would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend her if you want amazing food, guidance and company! Best one on the app!

Chef Gretch cooked for my family on many occasions, and her work was amazing! It was such a treat to have someone else do the cooking and planning, even when our little vegan was visiting! And she was able to vary and change the menu to use less cheese, less dairy, etc. for the other picky people in our family. She was always on time, and her prices were so much less than trying to do it myself! I'll definitely have her cook for us again!

I really never write reviews, but Alvin Yu and his team were amazing! Our guests really raved about all the food. (I need to get his recipe for the Asiago Crusted Chicken Breast - so tender!). And his servers and sous chefs really made the event. Their attention to detail and lovely personalities really made the atmosphere. They were so helpful beyond what I could have even asked for. We had 2 passed appetizers, then salad, 4 entrees and 3 sides served family style for 44 guests and everything was delicious and well timed. Alvin totally understood what I wanted and was able to seamlessly accommodate special dietary needs. He was very responsive to all my questions throughout the planning process and seriously made the event really so easy on me! And they really made our guests of honor feel very special, too. They really go above and beyond. A huge thank you to Fyusion Dining for making our event such a success!

Chef Yu and his sous chef were amazing. They were prompt, reliable, organized, helpful, polite, and made sure that my guests were happy. The food was delicious and the presentation was gorgeous. I was so grateful for their helpfulness during prep time, so I could get myself and my kids ready. While I was helping my kids finish their homework before our party, Chef Yu was arranging flowers and setting the table without me even asking. It was kind of like having my mom in the kitchen with me, because like her, Chef Yu just looked around to see what needed to be done and he did it. Effortless! I highly recommend Fyusion dining for their professionalism, as well as their unique and interesting menu options!

My lovely Girlfriend brought Mariela in to cook for my 30th birthday and it could not have been better. She came over to our place, groceries and tools in hand, and put together one of the best meals we've had in a long long time. She also gladly cooked up pretty much everything she bought, so we've been eating leftovers all week. Don't hesitate to bring her in, you won't be disappointed.

Chef Taryn has cooked for multiple dinner parties for me. Her creative cuisine pleases many types, definitely foodies. She’s able to cook many styles such as modern American, southern, Thai, Indian etc. She also has great knowledge of wine and pairing it with food. She can make amazing desserts as well. I’ve seen her do parties of 4 and up to parties of 50. She’s the best! I would trust her to cook for the my most important guest.

Taryn is a well organized, professional, and highly talented chef. Her food is fresh, creative, and absolutely delicious! She knows how to make healthy yet decadent food, but if you want to experience the full range of her cooking, let her use butter! I've used her for my last two dinner parties and will not go back to catering or any other private chef again. She has them all beat.

Taryn simply makes some of the best food I have ever eaten. Working with Oprah Winfrey for 10 years I’ve gotten to sample many great chef’s cooking and Taryn is at the top of that list. Her food just makes you happy!

Mary's cooking classes are both fun and educational. Mary has an easy going style, yet she keeps you on track with easy to follow recipes and a helping hand when you need it. I am such a fan that I've taken 7 different classes with Mary! I've learned how to make bread and the jam and butter to put on it, pasta, apple pie and cheese! It's most fun when you bring a friend or two and make it a group outing.
