"We recently hired Chef Brian for a dinner party I hosted in Palm Springs
for my wife's 40th birthday. To say that Chef Brian exceeded our
expectations is a complete understatement. His attention to detail,
relaxed and engaging personality, and culinary excellence all contributed
to a very memorable evening. And FOOD....yes the FOOD.......amazing, or
as Brian refers to it, "pretty straightforward." It was anything but
straightforward. I knew we were in for a treat when Brian showed up at 11am to prepare for a 7pm dinner. Thank you Brian for an incredible evening."
- Calvin C., Vancouver, BC
"Chef Graham cooked the most wonderful meals for me and my family. They are amazing… …outstanding! The pulled pork with black eyed peas and fresh corn was one of the best meals I've ever had. I'd love the recipes, but I know I could never cook them as well as Chef Graham. Please send him our regards and thanks!"

"We had such a wonderful evening with Chef Jill in Hawaii. The aroma of all of the ingredients wasunique and unbelievable. We loved everything on the menu. Jill was professional and personable. We were able to sit and eat while she finished and presented each course."
-Cara S., Honolulu, HI
"I recently utilized the services of Big City Chefs for a 40th birthday party dinner in Palm Springs. What a great time we had! Chef Brian was a pleasure to talk to and a wonderful chef. The process was extremely simple. I simply placed an email request and Chef Brian called me to coordinate our needs. We did use a pre-designed menu as a platform that Chef Brian tweaked to fit our group's likes and dislikes. For a majority of the group, it was the first time they had ever had the services of a private chef, and Brian didn't fail to impress them. I received many compliments about how delicious the meal was, and the service was exemplary. Many thanks to Chef Brian for making our birthdays so memorable!"
-Wendi D., Seattle

"Tom, I just wanted to let you know what an amazing job your Boston Chef Stephen did for us this past Saturday night. He went so far above and beyond anything we could have wished for. Not only was he an absolute pleasure to be around, but the extent that he went to on not only the food but the experience he provided was exactly what we wanted. You truly have a gem in Stephen and I know I speak for my wife as well when I tell you that we hope to see much more of him as well as letting all our friends know about the experience we had. Thank you so much.
