Maria is an amazing person and chef. She was very personable. My private party of 6 enjoyed everything she prepared from the coconut shrimp to a salad with her special dressing. New York steak to Snow crab. Maria was so easy to work with and accommodated everything I asked for. I recommend Maria to cook for your small intimate party or large.

Maria was recommended to us as we were planning a 20th wedding anniversary while staying in Kailua. She was so helpful over the phone and had such wonderful menu suggestions. She arrived with everything she needed and prepared the most delicious and beautiful dinner for my family. She was so cheerful and made the evening into a perfect memory for my whole family. She left the kitchen spotless! We can't wait to hire her for an upcoming house warming party we are planning!

Maria was outstanding & provided our group of 18 adults with a combination of wonderful meals over 5 nights. She was extremely helpful and happy to work with us regarding our requirements. I would recommend Maria as a great alternative to 'doing it yourself'!

Maria catered our December North Shore wedding for 20 people. Everything was arranged by email, she accommodated our changes as the wedding date neared and the food was great. Maria's wasabi poke was amazing and we had guests searching the island the next day for poke. But nothing compared to Maria's recipe! The way she set up the buffet table was beautiful. We were very happy with everything.

Maria prepared a great meal on site for four of us. She brought in all the food, prepared it, and cleaned the kitchen better than she found it. A great conversationalist, and fantastic chef. I just wish she lived closer to us (Atlanta) so we could use her more often.

Maria & her assistant were the perfect choice for our daughters wedding in Oahu. She thought of everything even things that I forgot to consider. This was not an easy task considering we did all the planning by phone & email because we live in Texas. We were pleasantly surprised that we didn't need to do anything. She arranged the tables with Hawaiian flowers, and set up all the delicious food so that everything looked as good as it tasted! They even packed up all the leftover food for us & cleaned everything up before leaving. Our daughters Wedding wouldn't have been complete without all of Maria's hard work! We definitely plan on using her again when we celebrate our Anniversay in Hawaii in a few years.

They were very pleasant to work with, were always responsive and seemed a part of the family on Thanksgiving Day! They managed to cook a meal that served both the meat eaters and vegetarians of the family.

We have encountered Maria several times for different events and have always found her meals to be exquisite. They are thoughtfully prepared and the price is a great value. We have recommended her to friends and will continue to use her in the future as will our references.

We asked Maria to cater a 30th anniversary party we celebrated on the 15th of February with our family and friends. We spoke to her on the phone several times and she gave us ideas and helped us plan a number of things besides the food. She cooked, cleaned and served fabulous food and helped make this important occasion in our lives a memorable experience for us. We are very grateful for her services and will certainly call on her again for our next event!

Maria and her assistant cooked, served and cleaned up for our wedding dinner on Oct 5, 2008. We did most of the arranging over the phone and it was wonderful to see it all come together as we had planned. The food was a hit and we would hire her again in a second!

Maria catered our wedding of about 30 people on Oahu. We were very pleased with her services. We were planning our wedding remotely, and she was very responsive. We interacted with her several times over phone and email before arriving in Hawaii. She went beyond expectations by helping organize a number of things (beyond just food) which was very helpful. Of course, the food itself was delicious! We highly recommend Maria for anyone needing a caterer in Hawaii.
