I rarely write reviews. As a past convention industry executive, I’ve had the opportunity to work with numerous catering companies.

My Own Chef catered my daughter’s wedding. This company and its staff, chef and pastry chef are outstanding. Their menu options are outstanding and interesting, not your usual rubber chicken...Quail appetizers, lavender lemonade, and delicious roasted beef tenderloin and Indian spiced chicken with herb roasted red potatoes and grilled asparagus. Our guests were so very complimentary of the delicious dinner, lovely and delectable wedding cake and the friendly and professional service.

Darryl created an amazing cake from a photo I had. Again, not only was it beautiful, but super moist with the most delicious icing...whereas most wedding cakes look great, but don’t taste good.

Working with the staff was effortless, and fun!

I cannot thank them enough for the quality of food and friendly professional service...all at a reasonable price.

This past weekend we had our daughter's wedding event catered by the amazing team at My Own Chef!! Wow, awesome, delicious, yummy are just a few of the words we heard from our guests at the wedding! 
A few moments at the beginning of the reception it became a little hectic with a few more seats & tables being needed. MOC handled all with class & care as this issue was quickly resolved!
Their staff was polite, attentive and ready to assist, being observant and yet not intrusive in any way. (One team member even jumped in to help me with securing the train on my daughter's dress!!)
We would highly recommend without hesitation this most professional catering company. You could not go wrong using their experienced and well qualified services for any event you are planning!!

"Thank you for a terrific event!  The bacon bar was one of the highlights of the entire weekend!  We received lots of accolades on all of the food and people raved about the bacon bar.  Along with your great food, your staff was very efficient and friendly.  Thanks again for making our son's rehearsal dinner such a success!"

"I had been to dozens of weddings and never once did I like the food or service.  Well this experience was the exception.  Let me just say I hate buttercream cake and that's exactly what my wife ordered.  It was the best cake I've ever had.  Everyone was raving about it.  Then for the grooms cake we ordered chocolate mousse dessert cups.  Again, amazing!  And the service was second to none!  I honestly felt like an over pampered king.  The beef dinner was utterly PERFECT!  These people know what they're doing! PERIOD!  I can't say enough about their service!  On point is an understatement! Hats off to Holly and the entire gang!  Pastry chef has his act together when it comes to flavor!"

"My Own Chef was phenomenal from the beginning.  We looked at several caterers, but MOC was the only caterer that was willing to work with us, and developed a menu that we wanted within our budget.  They also provided guidance on what to serve and how much to serve at the cocktail hour and for dinner.  Additionally it was helpful that they were also able to provide a beautiful & delicious cake (which received tons of compliments from our guests.) I also found out after the wedding that some of our guests were not able to eat raw tomatoes (which we had a few dishes that had raw tomatoes). MOC staff took the time during our reception to prepare dishes for guests' special dietary needs on the spot.  When I found this out, I was incredibly grateful and so thankful that we selected MOC to cater our reception and take care of our guests.  Thank you, MOC for going above and beyond!"
