Kelley prepared a delicious meal and was able to accommodate our requests. Service was spot on and kitchen cleaned and as we had left it. A great find. Thanks Kelley and sorry for the delayed review.See ratings
I could not have asked for better. It was just that great from beginning to end. Chef Kelley's cooking and organizational skills are top notch.
He and the gourmet dinner for 10 was such a hit that everyone could not stop talking about it.
It was truly a wonderful experience.
Our event was a casual afternoon barbecue/luncheon/light dinner in early November for 40, served mostly buffet style. The menu included poached lobster, Turkish shrimp, seared ahi, pear salad, seared scallops, Tandoori roast chicken, vegan quinoa, grilled rack of lamb, gratin of root vegetables
Kelley did a fabulous job preparing an amazing meal for 12 people celebrating a friend's bachelorette party. He was extremely responsive and attentive to detail while we were planning the event and he made us a memorable and perfectly executed meal from antipasto through dessert.

Kelley was a professional from start to finish--quick to respond, aware of his timing, a wonderful, well thought-out meal, and he left the kitchen exactly as he found it after. We were sort of on the fence as to whether we wanted a buffet or a sit down, as we only had 12 guests, but he made our buffe...Read more

Kelley was a real pleasure to work with especially given the 24 notice to pull together a buffet dinner for 9. With very minimal direction he put together a healthy satisfying menu and gave us super clear instructions on best ways to heat, serve and present the food. Our guests were delighted and we'...Read more
