Clients are Saying:

“Thank you so much for the great Thanksgiving dinner you cooked for us! It was fabulous!!!”
     — Beth Wright

“Chef Michael was so professional and creative. We loved the anniversary dinner he prepared for us. And when he left, it was like he was never there. The kitchen was immaculate. We loved it so much, he's coming back to cook Christmas dinner for our whole family!”
     — Valerie Rekward

“We knew were going to arrive on Kauai on Christmas Day when grocery and restaurant options wouldn't be available. We had the great good luck of learning about Chef Michael, a few days ahead of time. Some huge plusses to this experience: Chef Michael was amiable, easy to talk to, even long distance. He promised a gourmet supper waiting for us in the condo, as well as breakfast fixins' for the next morning. The supper was delectable...fresh, innovative, and plentiful. Breakfast was also a gourmet treat, with Kauai coffee, fresh fruit, and more. The price? Quite reasonable. We highly recommend Chef Michael to anyone interested in a memorable catered meal.”
     — Brian & Diane Reynolds

“Whenever we travel, one of the highlights of our trip is to take a local cooking class. When planning our trip to Kauai, I had no luck finding anything online, so I contacted the Culinary Arts Department at the Kauai Community College. They forwarded my request to Chef Michael. He was fantastic! We worked on a menu via email, and concluded with my final approval. He brought everything he needed, ALL local & fresh, including several vegetables, spices, and fruits from his own garden! He was full of knowledge, not only about the food, but the beautiful island of Kauai and its people. It was a fun, laid back, and delicious evening! Mahalo Chef Michael! Thank you for giving our family such a memorable evening and a wonderful Hawaiian culinary experience! ”
     — Tamie Ellis

“My family and I had the honor and privilege of enjoying a fabulous dinner at a dear friend's home on Christmas day. I'm still thinking of that pate' and fresh clam dip, plus the main course of a delicious and tender Prime Rib. A true feast!!! I wish you were closer to my home because I'd save my money just to enjoy that dinner again!!! I want you to know that I will always remember this as one of the best meals of my life. I know my family would heartily agree!! I can't praise you enough for the marvelous meal, your ability to make us feel welcome, as well as the beautiful way you left my friend's home. I felt like a queen on that day! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. ”
     — Phyllis Perez-Sorensen

“I've worked with Chef Michael for over 20 years and know how amazing his cooking skills are. That is why I recently hired him to prepare the Christmas party feast for my staff at Kalaheo Steak & Ribs. The meal was wonderfully prepared and artfully presented. We thank him for making our Christmas Party a resounding success. ”
