they say it best


The Chef Lady is a gem of the Houston-area catering industry. Highly recommended for intimate gatherings of all sizes. A versatile, daring chef, she works with clients on finding just the right menu - knowing that food can make or break a certain atmosphere. Food is a personal thing in Houston, where many confuse their stomach with their heart. And The Chef Lady successfully works this to her advantage: This is food made with a genuine smile, food served with a genuine smile, and food that leaves a genuine smile on your face, long after you have cleaned the plate.

Thank you for making my 60th birthday celebration so wonderful. Everything was top notch from the delicious food to the decorations, photography, waitstaff and the beautiful food presentation.  My family and guests were truly amazed at the ease and professionalism exhibited by you and your staff as you catered to our culinary desires.  I will never forget how wonderful you and your staff made my special day. 

Thank you very, very much.

It is hard to know what to expect when you hire someone to cater a very special meal for you, regardless of it being business or pleasure.  It so happened for me that it was both.  After researching from a distance, I landed on Chef Jocelyn and made the initial contact to schedule a time to meet that would work with my busy schedule.  I was surprised and impressed by the “at home nature” Chef Jocelyn presented during our phone conversation.  Planning the event was by far the simplest task of the busy holiday season, and as the date drew closer excitement continued to build over this special company event.  Sitting around our dinner table, hearing the satisfaction of my co-workers, and knowing that my already exhausted parents did not have to spend hours slaving over a nice holiday meal for the staff, was priceless.  From the customer service, to the laughter, to the incredible food, to the “to die for” desserts, this experience left an impact on all who were there.  As the night drew to a close, the dishes were packed away, there was nothing more I could do other than give Chef Jocelyn an enormous hug, because her service was less like service and more like a best friend preparing a gourmet meal for all to enjoy!  Chef Jocelyn, I cannot thank you enough for all you did to make that night amazing.  I know that as our company grows, you will be an important part each year at our events.  I look forward to hearing of your continued success and want you to know that you earned all 5 stars in everyone’s book!

Thank you!

Where do I begin. . . I first met the Chef Lady at my cousin's wedding.  While helping out, I learned more about her.  As soon as I tasted her food, I asked her for her business card because I knew right there and then that the Chef Lady was going to cater my wedding.  The Chef Lady is VERY professional and has the BEST chicken with mushroom gravy in the WORLD!!! My wedding reception wasn't even over before I had herds of people asking me who made this or who made that.  I would recommend the Chef Lady for any catering needs regardless of how big or how small.  The Chef Lady worked with my budget, answered all and any questions I had, and was VERY attentive to my needs.  Nowadays, it's hard to find someone who can meet those requirements and more.  The Chef Lady is someone who can and will.  Thank you Chef Lady!!!

Thanks for everything! Everyone thought the food was great. You season to perfection! I have passed your number on to many friends that have called me to get you to do their parties.  I will certainly use you for my next party. With you handling the food I didn't mind doing the rest to prepare. It allowed me to have more fun at my party than I ever have before when I have put the pressure of preparing the food myself. I will never do that to myself again, not as long as you are available.

Thanks again,
