I have been really impressed with this service. They were able to find a chef that can cook for my dietary needs and were able to fulfill the request in a short period of time. Dana has been amazing as the chef and has been able to adapt and cook delicious meals each week! I have a gluten-free and dairy-free diet that I just started and she is able to make meals I had loved previously meet my diet while also being healthy. I would highly recommend this service!
Reply One of the necessary skills our chefs have is the ability to make a wide variety of meals that fit within our clients' dietary needs while still tasting delicious. Dana has definitely got that talent and more! We're proud of the service Dana brings to her clients.

This review covers what my Friend That Cooks, Chef Sarah Glenn, prepared for me for the week starting Thursday, April 22, 2021. Chef Sarah is moving to the Sioux Falls location and, oh boy, are they lucky!

Salmon and egg salad with coarse mustard, butter lettuce, celery, and herbs – Haven’t had egg salad since I was forced to go on a low-fat diet a few years ago. With Chef Sarah’s professional help, here is a combination of foods that have all the flavors I missed and is low-fat. It even had salmon! And this is way better than what I remembered.

Thai curry shrimp with rice noodles and red bell pepper – What a wonderful curry dish! The shrimp are so tender, and the flavors are so terrific that you immediately know that these are no ordinary shrimp. Obviously, they go perfectly with the rice noodles and red bell peppers. Just another example of typical Chef Sarah excellence. (At the time, I always believe that a meal prepared by Chef Sarah is the best thing I’ve ever had. You may think this impossible for every single meal; logically and objectively, you would obviously be right. Ah, but that’s where the Chef Sarah magic comes in and changes everything including the principal of mutual exclusion. Questions?)

French onion smothered pork chops with roasted sweet potatoes and broccoli – Here is a surprise combination of some of my favorite comfort foods. I always liked French onion soup and I miss it due to my low-fat restrictions. But take the best of French onion soup and turn it into pork chop seasonings and I’m back in the game! And it’s just wonderful! Chef Sarah, you are the best!
Reply Frank, we love your tremendous feedback about Chef Sarah. She really is the best. She will be missed in Des Moines and welcomed in Sioux Falls. Thanks for your always wonderful insight into her amazing service!

The Friends That Cook process is so great and professional. We were able to give Chef Xander our favorite foods and foods we don’t prefer. Every week was something to look forward to- the food was always delicious. Chef Xander became an instant friend to the family and was great with my kids. We would highly recommend him to anyone!
Reply Everyone knows a chef has to have great culinary talent, but when inviting them into your home personality becomes just as important. Thanks for sharing how easily Chef Xander befriended all the members of your family and how his patience and kindness have been a positive part of your experience.

The service that Chef Zander provides is outstanding and has made the evenings more enjoyable for our family. Our family has two demanding full-time jobs and two extremely active children, so our days and evenings are completely filled. Having this service has allowed our family to take care of all the things we want to participate in throughout our day and still provide very healthy meals for our family.
I love that everything is prepared in our home and easily available for us when we are ready for a meal. This is the service my family will continue using and has been a great service for us. I like that Chef Zander plans each meal and I do not have to be involved in those decisions.
Reply One of the things we love about our chefs is how they provide clients with not only delicious, healthy food, but also the time and peace of mind to pursue and enjoy the things that matter most. Thanks for letting us know all the positive ways Zander has made this happen for you!

Zander was excellent. He took his time, cleaned up and food was great. He is conscientious and would enter on his own make the meals and store them in the fridge with clear instructions.

My daughter and I along with 4 of her friends rented a house for the weekend in Houston Texas for her birthday last year and hired Chef Hernandez for our personal chef...He did an amazing job with the brunch and dinner...If you're ever in the Houston area and need a chef...Chef Hernandez is your go to guy!
Reply Menee, this is great to hear. Nothing makes a family gathering more special than having a professional chef create a personalized menu for you to share with those you love. Thanks for letting us know how much you appreciate Chef Hernandez!

We love Chef Damar! We’re trying new foods and his recipes are healthy and taste incredible. We’ve gifted some meals to friends with new babies/neighbors and everyone has raved about it - our kids even have favorites we’ve asked for repeats of. He’s such a great fit for our family/lifestyle and we love having him every week.
Reply Jessica, that's amazing! We love it when our chefs are such a great fit that they compliment your everyday lifestyle. Thanks for recommending Damar to neighbors and sharing Friend That Cooks with others. We appreciate the word-of-mouth!

I am so pleased with this wonderful service. Sam, our chef is amazing! The moment I knew this was going to work out was the second week when Sam turned to me and said, "Dinner will be ready in 20 minutes." I haven't heart that since I was a kid living at home with my mother! And now I am the "mom" AMAZING!
We are saving money on our weekly grocery bill, saving money not buying take out, not wasting food to spoilage, and eating amazing dinners. This is so much better than pizza and fast food. If I could give a higher rating I would. It's simple and wonderful food, Sam even preps a few things for me to make when I'm feeling like cooking. She makes all of our families favorite dinners, and always adds something new. It's the best of ALL worlds. I met with her manager, Christina, and loved the great energy they both brought to my kitchen. When Sam is done, its clean and smells amazing. My kids 9 & 10 are trying new things, and they love to remind me that its "ok if they like her food better than mine, because she is s REAL CHEF! " I'll take it!
Reply Angela, we are beyond thrilled to hear your experience. Sam is a rockstar here at FTC and we are happy that you and your family have the opportunity to experience her amazing food, as well as, her beautiful personality.

If you have any questions about the great cuisine that comes from the Chefs at Friend that Cooks, just let me tell you about this week with my Chef, Chef Damar. This week he is taking our taste buds on a journey from Italy (with chicken parm) to India (with chicken saag) then bringing us back home to good ole grandma-inspired caramel cake. My heart is full and so is my stomach! Thanks for another great week Chef Damar!!!
Reply Thanks again miss LaRhonda for a great review, we love hearing about your experiences and how happy you are with chef Damar and his cooking.
