"Chef
and his assistant arrived promptly as planned to start preparations. They provided all their own utensils and pans, and needed to use" only a few of our kitchen containers. They immediately got to work preparing the meal, cleaning up after themselves as the dinner was prepared. Dinner was served precisely on time, and we enjoyed a delicious meal complete with a dessert of Banana's Foster that everyone loved! The portions were huge, and some were bringing leftovers home to enjoy later. Chef
and his assistant visited with everyone after the dinner, and then completely cleaned up the kitchen, leaving it spotless. I would definitely use their services again!

"Chef
went above and beyond our expectations and served a meal that was creative, bursting with flavor, and beautifully presented. The added" touch of his charming personality was a delight to our guests. We had a fun and enjoyable experience working with him and will definitely have him back for future catering opportunities!

.At 4Pm residents set up tables for dinner. At 4:30 caterer was contacted and resident was informed that they were stuck in traffic due to accident. The caterer was contacted again againat 5,5:30,6:30,7:30 and 8PM. At this point many of the residents left and went to their apartments to make dinner. Residents who had snack foods brought them out to community room to share with those of us waiting. At 8:30 PM caterer finally showed up. He served Meridian court I then our bldg Meridian court II. Food was cold. Many residents were afraid to neat Turkey due to it sitting in tray for over 4 hrs. Residents took food out of supposed warming containers and arranged on tables. The only thing the caterer was worried about was getting paid. Even though their are many people from different cultures and regions of country here it was in full agreement that the food was bland and tasteless. Our building s committee have tabled a motion to never use him again. We were so disappointed in the level of service that was provided for us at that price.

is a very hard worker, I mean this guy doesn't take a break!
He's passionate about what he does, has vast experience and the food... Oh my God! I've never tasted such vast variety of items for the entire family (kids and adults) and truly enjoyed every item on the menu. The kids absolutely loved his food and are now eating healthier and trying different things, all thanks to

as we, parents, couldn't get them to try it.

grocery shops, prepares everything to our taste, cooks, cleans up ( does dishes / kitchen) when he's done, label all dishes and leave instructions if needed.
We both work full time, are raising two kids and often found ourselves eating out, making unhealthy choices at least 3-4 nights a week because it is overwhelming to cook every night on top of homework, sports / scouts and school activities.

Raleigh Chefs Provider Name Locked
is very professional, always early, never leaves without making sure everything is to our liking, reviews any instructions and is always a phone call away if needed!

Thanks to

I can't say enough about how happy we are with Chef
Raleigh Chefs Provider Name Locked
. My husband and I have very different food preferences and I was having to cook two different meals each night, which was getting really old. Chef
Raleigh Chefs Provider Name Locked
has been the answer to our prayers. He arrives on Monday, cooks wonderful meals each labeled for my husband or myself, cleans up after himself and leaves the house smelling wonderful. I am so excited to come home from work and find our meals all ready and labeled in the refrigerator. He has been so accomidating and has even taught me a thing or two along the way. All the meals have been excellent, can't wait to see what he comes up with for next week.

They deliver the meals I order for the days I've ordered for. They do a Monday drop off to use by wed and a thurs fri drop off to use by Sunday. She puts up a menu for the month and I order for the days I want if any. Her prices are very reasonable and I order by serving size .

When I finally admitted to myself that, with my busy schedule, I was succumbing to not eating as I needed to eat to maintain my health, I decided to to make a change and get some professional help with choosing my foods correctly and getting the help I needed preparing my meals. I decided to change all that and put myself on the right road for sustained good health. I contacted the company that a friend recommended (as I later discovered this company was also on Angie's List) and called
Raleigh Chefs Provider Name Locked
run by a young woman whose name is Ilia Regini. Miss Regini's back ground and qualifications were impeccable and perfect for what I needed and what I was looking for. My initial contact with her was very pleasant and she afforded me the time (not making me feel at all rushed) for me to explain to her my needs and what I was seeking. She set up a time for an appointment for me, when she would interview me, in depth, to discover and relate to her any health issues that I am affected by or I was concerned about. She questioned me about any health issues that I may be pre-deposed to genetically through my parents and grand parents, aunts and uncles (a family history of diseases, any allergies, etc.). Miss Regini set up an appointment to come to my home to prepare the meals that we chose, that I knew I would like and that she knew would be good for me. Her knowledge of the negative affects of additives, pesticides and eating GMO foods was astounding and recommended a diet as close to 100% organic as possible and for a small additional cost (and of course the cost of the food) she agreed to do all the shopping. Her prices were excellent and very fair considering the amount of work that she did to make sure that the foods that she was preparing were especially what I was wanting and needing. I decided after trying her services to have her come one day a week to prepare all my meals.
