"I was going to cook out for them however with business doing so good I just didn't have time, so at last min I called up and asked if" they could cater the function, they not only did a rush job for me. i have to admit it was cooking like my grandmother cooked the food was warm and so good that everyone of my employees was amazed, and the pastries was not like that crap i get at world bakery the icing was hand made and just made you want more, i was little reluctant to hire a catering service cuz last two times the food was just,,ok,, but was such a sweet treat to deal with with I will be using them often, shoot ill admit i have ordered a few treats for the family just to spoil our taste buds, and just ate one now,,hehehe thats what made me think about leaving this review

"The chef did really well. For $75.00 we got a full meal for 4 including an appetizer, salad, and entree: Beef , Green beans and mashed potatoes." I've never had a meal this gourmet and delicious inside my own home. I chose the menu for our meal, she's able to cook most everything even from other countries, and she uses all organic items, top quality. She may seem a little pricey but the money is well worth the investment, after I did the price breakdown it only costed us approximately $18.00 a person. She is a trained chef and very nice and friendly. I highly recommend her to any family where the parents work long hours with children, and you regularly go out to dinner. She is I think the answer for families who are busy but health conscious and don't want to turn to restaurants most nights of the week.

This was a challenging opportunity because we have over 50 food allergies. had all kinds of alternative ingredient ideas and was extremely creative. She always had new recipes for us to try. She was also very organized and neat. A delight!!

We have been using 's services for a very long time....over a year maybe. I honestly can't remember but I also don't know what we do if we did not have this valuable service available. We bring our meals to work every day - and we each eat three meals during the weekday. We prepare all our meals for the weekdays ...More on the weekend. The meals themselves are , but the time requirements of preparing the meats was getting to be too much. We found chef and they are super flexible and willing to customize to whatever you need. Right now they cook our meats and then we assemble our meals at home. We are about to add a full meal to the order for our busy night of the week. Food is great. Service is great with a very friendly staff. Efficient and problem-free. Pricing is excellent. Chef and staff have become a vital component of supporting the dietary path we are pursuing and we are better for it. We can't recommend them enough.

We hired to provide family meals, since we have a difficult time finding the time to prepare meals ourselves.
We have been using her service for 3 weeks and are extremely happy with the services. has been professional, courteous and PROMPT! Not to mention the excellent meals we have received. It ...More is very difficult to prepare tofu well, and nailed it. My wife and I loved it!!!!!!!, Also tried beef medallions prepared Perfectly. Amazing meat and vegetarian options (our preference, but also provides several seafood options as well). We look forward to our next delivery.
If your busy, have difficulty finding time to cook, and are tired of eating a restaurants, you should check out her menu online. I regret not doing this years ago.
I recommend her without reservation!

catered our Fourth of baby gender cookout for 30 people. DELICIOUS food!! The pulled pork (I think spent 18 hours on this with the slow cooking and pulling-and it was evident- so tender it fell apart and so flavorful!!) and 's ...More famous beans were so yummy! We had the pork, chicken, all beef hot dogs, macaroni & cheese, garlic toast, watermelon salad, spinach artichoke dip and a veggie & dip tray. There was plenty of food and everyone loved it! & are so sweet-they even cut the watermelon salad into star shapes to go with our theme! Very professional, very accommodating, very gracious people who make absolutely delicious food at a very reasonable price. & were very helpful with all planning and worked very hard to ensure everything went very smoothly and it did! I highly recommend and will hire them again for our next event!

Our interaction with Chef was stellar. He was prompt with emails, phone calls, and had a lot of different menu options for us to choose from. The pricing for something like this was comparable to an online food service like Hello Fresh, and/or Plated.

I attended a wedding catered by and was extremely disappointed by the service provided.The wedding and the dinner were held in the same area which required that the wedding guests move to a vestibule area for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres while brought in tables and set the tables for dining. It was ...More supposed to be a weight of about an hour between the wedding and the beginning of the dinner but in actuality ended up being nearly 2 hours because had forgotten the seating chart as well as the place cards. Someone had to be sent back to the office to retrieve the seating chart and place cards which delayed dinner by almost an hour. once we were seated the servers did not use the place cards to determine who should receive which meal instead they called out who gets the vegetarian plate. approximately 20 minutes later they came around and asked who gets the beef plate and another 20 minutes later they came around and asked who was still waiting to receive a chicken plate. by the time the diners who would order chicken received their meal the vegetarian plaited people had finished their meal and the beef plated people were more than halfway through. On a couple of tables there were no water glasses and when I asked for water glasses for our table they brought the glasses but still no water we requested water and received it as they were clearing the dinner plates off the table.

My wife is in chronic pain and partially disabled, and I am to old to do everything anymore. We used to eat out a lot, or bring food in, but I was not satisfied that we were getting a healthy diet. I found 's ad on a competitor's site and interviewed her. Turns out she is about the same age as our daughter, is now ...More single but has an eighteen year old son she still raises. For the five years previous to moving to Albuquerque, had a personal chef and catering business in Chicago, Ill., where her parents still live. She was born in Romania, raised in Israel, and speaks (and cooks) in five languages.
has been cooking all her life, basically. She has only one condition: she will not cook pork (against her religion). Other than that she will cook anything you want, and has the skills to do it. She is personally a vegetarian, but was not always, and her meat dishes are every bit as delicious and well prepared as her vegetables, soups, breads, salads, and deserts. We have her shop at a local organic food store, so everything she prepares for us is fresh, organic and wholesome.
works for four hours at a time. During that period, she plans the menu (with you, of course), goes shopping, comes back and prepares all the food you ordered, then cleans up the kitchen. Last week she made Stuffed Chicken , (with fresh pasta), Baked Root Vegetables Au Gratin, two loaves of Zucchini Bread, Mixed Fruit Salad, Cut Veggies for snacking, and a great Stew as well. We usually have more than we can eat, and it all warms up well. Now, instead of going out with friends at some restaurant, we can (and do) entertain them at home with great food, as least as good as we could get at any of the places where we used to eat out. And it costs no more.
can cook for any dietary restrictions you may have, and still have the food wholesome and tasting great. She will also cook for events and cater them. She can cook kosher, halal, vegan, gluten free, nut free, or adhere to any dietary restrictions you have, and it will still taste so good! You won't miss a thing! If you need a cook, you should really give her a try.

I couldn't have asked for a better event. My husband was completely surprised and the menu included all of his favorites. Passed hors d'oeuvres: pigs in a blanket, deviled eggs, an amazing assortment of bruschetta (chicken liver , with honey and red pepper ...More , etc.), and cheese plate. The dinner menu started with a great arugula salad with , candied walnuts and a honey balsamic vinaigrette, followed by rack of lamb cooked to perfection, twice baked potatoes with a sea salt crust and a of veggies. Dessert included a black forest birthday cake and assorted pastries. and her team were consummate professionals and my friends are still raving about the food!
