I wanted to thank you for the wonderful service you have always provided us. After so many years of calling on you for special events, client events and big family get-togethers, the food and the service is always impeccable. From prep to table to clean-up the process is flawless; I never worry.  And the final statement, the absolutely  scrumptious food! Beautifully presented, a feast for the palette and for the eyes. Thanks you for always being there for us.   Warmest regards, Keith and Faith

We have used Cooks For Hire since September, 2015. Each and every time, this team has provided us with quality staff who are professional, courteous and reliable. Their skill level varies from dishwasher/kitchen helpers to Certified Chef de Cuisines. I would strongly recommend Cooks For Hire to anyone in the food service industry.

Thank you for this much needed service.

The Cooks for Hire team has been a tremendous help in the past year especially with our Banquet operation. Team members who come to the site are respectful and motivated, with a “can do” attitude. I trust the work and quality they provide and it’s always a pleasure working with them.

Allen, Sous Chef

Cooks For Hire was very professional and discreet for our event. The food was delicious and beautifully presented and replenished on a continual basis. Our guests were never waiting around for canapés. We highly recommend the services provided by CFH. They played a large part in the seamless execution of our event. From the planning stages to the actual day of our event, CFH made the process stress free.

As a chef responsible for executing high-end dinners, canape parties and large volume buffets, the staff at Cooks For Hire enable me to perform at the highest level of expectations. I have a small core staff that we routinely augment with CFH, helping keep our total labor and administration costs down and our productivity up. I can honestly say that Cooks for Hire has some of most knowledgeable Chefs I have had the pleasure to work with.
