"I loved having the Chefs, and below I have printed a letter that I forwarded to
in gratitude, which contains more information about my experience with them.
I wanted to express my extreme gratitude to you and
for preparing delicious, diabetic-friendly meals ...more in our family home from December 2013 to March 2014 for my father after his stroke.
immediately became a beloved member of our family, and most importantly, my mother and father LOVED the food.
Here are some heartfelt moments when I felt great gratitude, and I knew my money had been well spent:
• My mother telling me over the phone that one of
’s dishes in particular was “slammin” and requesting a DOUBLE portion of the same dish again the following week.
• You and
visiting my father and our family in the rehabilitation center after my father’s stroke, and
compassionately, but firmly, telling my father “No,” after my father requested that
use just a LITTLE bit of salt in preparing his dishes.
, knowledgeable on diets for people with diabetes and heart disease, then shared with us his methods for preparing flavorful, healthy meals without salt.
, preparing a sweet potato pie that was diabetic-friendly for my father, after I told my father he could ask
to prepare any dish he wanted. As my father (and my entire family) began a transition to a completely new diet after decades of salted pork, sugary
and food laden in fats,
’s preparing a diabetic-friendly Southern favorite that would fulfill my father emotionally and spiritually as well as physically was a grace, lifted my father’s spirits, and the spirits of everyone in the house.
My heart and my family’s stomachs were happy after you all left, and the cheerful compassion with which
prepared meals in our home provided emotional as well as physical sustenance to a reeling family.
I can’t thank you enough, and my Mom could not thank me enough for the gift of having
prepare foods in our family home. We wish you,
and your entire team many happy blessings, and rest assured that once we need a personal chef for a happier occasion
"We hired this place to cater for my mother's funeral. For the amount of $1600 we thought we had enough food. But they brought maybe $300 worth of food. There was a staff member there but she was rude. My Mother would be mortified. We are very sad about it. It was embarrassing to have too little food. The funeral director was not happy and ...more was able to get a $200 refund… a slight consolation. What we wanted was comfort food and lots ($1600!) of it at a time it was most needed. "
is young but already experienced and a wonderful chef. I was already a good cook but at our lessons he always teaches me something that makes cooking easier and more yummy. Also I have been trying to focus on removing fat and salt from my cooking without sacrificing flavor and he is very creative in helping me adapt my recipes. ...more He has also cooked for dinner parties for me. He is VERY dependable and punctual, trustworthy, honest, diplomatic, personable and polite, but most important ----his food is fantastic and my guests always rave over it. His prices are extremely reasonable. He even does the shopping for me (I pay him for one hour of time plus the cost of the groceries---he brings me the receipt). If you have concerns over
parents, he will make pre-prepared meals for them and deliver them in the Annapolis and Baltimore area, at a cost of roughly $17 per meal. I highly recommend his services. "

Although I'd set the table,
advised me that I needn't have. Before dinner,
gave a small talk describing his very impressive background as an international chef. All dishes were plated and served, each more delicious than the last. The presentation was flawless. My husband and I were free to relax and enjoy our guests in the privacy of our home. This experience far exceeded any that we'd have had at a restaurant. All in all, a fantastic experience! "
"Dawn and her staff did an outstanding job in prepping, creating, serving, and cleaning up for our Wedding Reception at the Beach house we rented in Corolla, NC. They arrived on-time, were professionally dressed, moved swiftly and with expertise in prepping the food, cooking the food, and serving the meal.
Despite challenges posed by weather (wedding ...more ceremony moved indoors at last minute to the area adjacent to the kitchen), Dawn and her team were adaptable and kept the reception on time.
The food was fabulous! Our guests raved about the Pork Loin and the Crab Cakes. The side dishes of rice, potatoes, and asparagus were outstanding. The topper was the wedding cake..... a delicious Chocolate cake with Raspberry filling. Truly delectable.
Clean up was handled efficiently and the kitchen area was left in better condition than when they had arrived.
We will be going back to the Outer Banks in the future and while we may not have a wedding reception to plan, we will happily secure
"He arrived on time, had everything set up within minutes, brought plenty of everything, it was all very good. He made ham, turkey, and veggie sandwiches. He provided all the condiments, plus

thinking about it makes me hungry! You will be very pleased when you hire Chef

and I heard all day how delicious and "fun" they had eating. My husband refuses to eat Tofu but he's been eating the leftover Tofu all week!! I'm glad we had left overs because we've been enjoying them all week. They set up and cleaned up without any difficulties. Very considerate, polite, friendly, and helped make my celebration a success. Scheduling them to return for our next house concert! "
