"Having used this wonderful Chef's services, I can say, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he is a magnificent Chef and also great events' planner. If you get the opportunity to call on Chef David, do so -- you'll always be very glad you did!!!!"
-Joan Burns-Scarveles, Hamden, CT
"David cooked up a fabulous, tasty batch of bite size grilled cheese sandwiches for an after party we hosted for 85 people. These were not your normal grilled cheese sandwiches, but bite size pieces with apple and brie and ham, to name a few, for all of us to enjoy. All were consumed! David and his wife are a pleasure to work with. They anticipate every need, are creative in their presentations and tastes, and I would hire them again for any event or party I might have."
-Caroline Muller, Essex, CT
"David catered our rehearsal dinner on October 7, 2016 at a small private club in CT, and I can't express how incredible he was! He was an absolute pleasure to work with, and his food was beyond delicious! David answered every phone call, text, and email promptly, professionally, effectively, and with a smile. He went above and beyond for us at every step of the way. Due to a bad traffic jam, half our party arrived 90 minutes late, but David and his crew handled it beautifully! When I asked him to push back serving dinner (again!), his response was a huge, sincere "no problem" and a smile. Most importantly, his food was absolutely fabulous and all our guests commented on how much they enjoyed it. We loved working with David, and he made our rehearsal dinner a huge success. We can't thank him or his crew enough!"
-Avery Twiss, Essex, CT
"I had to look up the spelling for "phenomenal" because I think that is the only word to do justice to our dinner. Everything, and I mean everything, was perfect. Of course, the most important was the food, and it was all delicious. But David added the art of plating, portion size and timing which made our dinner a "dining" experience, not just a meal. Our guests, and I, will remember this dinner for a long time. I can't stress enough how much we enjoyed the evening. I think anyone who hires David for a party or event will be incredibly pleased."
-Nancy Vetzner, Knoxville, TN
“David, Just a little note to tell you how much you have meant to the enjoyment of our family meals. Seeing you each week is a joy and tasting your food always a pleasure. The quality is exemplary, the passion displayed in the presentation and the overall experience has been and will continue to be the highlight of our week. The children are always bragging about “Chef” and wondering what dessert surprise he has in store for them once the meal is complete. When it is complete there is rarely a bite left. David out does himself each and every time he prepares a meal for us. David is a joy to have in my kitchen, respectful and creative. I could not ask for a kinder more talented and creative person to prepare our family meals and our special occasion parties. The food is awesome always!!”
-Jane Novello-Gunther, Knoxville, TN
“David has been a God send for my family. In November, I had to have surgery and knew I would not be in a position to cook for my family. So, I contacted David after reading some great reviews on his services. The food has been phenomenal and totally convenient for my family. David sends me a menu each week and delivers my meals every Monday. The food is so good and it tastes as if we are eating out at our favorite foodie restaurants. We are so thankful for David and Family Meal!”
-Lisa McMahan, Knoxville, TN
"We were totally satisfied customers! From David’s creative suggestions on the menu, total flexibility to my input, execution of dinner service, delicious high quality food, we were impressed customers. His professionalism makes it an easy recommendation to anyone.”
- Ben Hyman, Knoxville, TN
“As a working mother with 3 young children, this has been such a tremendous help to our family! The already prepared food is delivered right to my house & all we have to do is pull it out of the fridge & warm it up in the oven on the evenings we don’t have time to cook. The meals are delicious & this has given myself & my husband some extra time in the evenings to be able to spend more quality time together as a family. We are very grateful for the Family Meal service!”
