Dear Chef,

You certainly made our family gathering much easier for me and I very much appreciated the professionalism and warmth of you and your staff.

The food was tasty! The desserts were fabulous and even those who claim not to like gluten free desserts were pleasantly surprised as both cakes were very yummy and everyone ate them especially the apple cake.
I would recommend you to my friends as you are very thorough and I love the fact that the quality of food is important to you. That is a big plus in my book.

Dear Chef,

What a fantastic meal you prepared for us! The caviar, Walleye Wild Rice cakes and watercress salad were exceptional! We absolutely loved the snapper and risotto and the blackberry dessert. No words can express our gratitude for this exquisite gourmet meal. Your teams attention to service and detail were amazing as are you. We look forward to our next future event!

Warmest regards,
~CM, Lake Forest

Chef Vahé

Amazing Party! People were raving about the food all night! Your meal was truly amazing. I am in awe (as was everyone else) of your creativity! Truly an amazing meal. It’s so easy to brag about you! Thank you so much.

I  have had many big parties in my home, but choosing Chef Vahé to do the cooking for me was the best decision that I could have made. There were many dietary restrictions that we discussed and Chef Vahé was able to prepare an elegant, delicious meal for my party of 18. He understood all of my food concerns leaving me free to focus on entertaining and enjoying my event. He was meticulous in the food preparation, used only the healthiest ingredients brought all of his equipment and left the kitchen spotless! My guests were thoroughly impressed! I will definitely ask him again.

Our first (and certainly not last) experience with MENU FOR YOU far exceeded our expectations. The food was so incredibly flavorful and all of our guests enjoyed their dining experience. The organization of items made it so simple for me to execute in a timely fashion. I was able to relax and engage in the celebration rather than being consumed with the food. Thank you for EVERYTHING! Your efforts made our son’s celebration truly spectacular for ALL!



It’s very easy to write a review of your service. The food was great, the level of service and completeness was amazing. From the moment you all showed up, you handled everything. First you brought EVERYTHING you needed. You asked for nothing from us. I was happy to take my own trash out to make way for you, but you brought your own cans and bags. To say I was surprised was an understatement, but it didn’t stop there. You filled the kitchen, boxes of supplies, and just got to work. It seemed overwhelming to me, but fortunately I wasn’t doing any of the work. I enjoyed chatting with you as well as the staff. Everyone was pleasant and happy. While you were there for 10 hours, the team was as friendly at the end of the night as at the beginning of the day. And the kitchen was spotless when you were done. What a pleasure.

Now onto the food. It was beautiful and there was more than enough for everyone, but not so much that we couldn’t finish it as leftovers. Fortunately we didn’t have to throw anything out. Originally, the proposed menu was a little light in the number of dishes served, but you were more than accommodating when we added a few other options like a salad and rice. The appetizers were delicious and beautifully presented. They included two baked brie options, a delicious salmon on a greenhouse cucumber and other choices. We then went onto tasty beef tenderloin with a Chimichurri sauce, a salad, lime-cilantro rice and some glazed carrots. The dessert was also amazing. We supplemented that, but your lemon bars were to die for. They were so tasty and tart, just the way I like them.

At the end of the night, the kitchen was spotless; the dishes were washed or loaded in the dishwasher. All that we had to do was turnout the lights and relax for a few minutes before going to bed. In all it was an amazing night for all of us because we enjoyed the party and our guests without a care in the world about the kitchen and the meal even when we upped the number at the last minute. I would definitely use your Menu For You for another similar event and would enthusiastically recommend you to anyone looking for a lovely catered dinner party.

I was there last night, food was great, and a service with a smile was great! Thank you for making my friend happy!!!!!

– MR Northbrook

Just to sum it up, my husband said, “We are never using anyone else but Vahé that was the best, easiest dinner party we have ever thrown!” The arctic char and the cauliflower puree were the standout items of the night and my personal fave was the dessert! The evening went so smoothly and was so tasty and the presentation amazing!!!  What a treat to have a clean kitchen as well.  Absolutely wonderful in every aspect.

– M, Wilmette
