I can’t say enough amazing things about Joe we hired him to cook us dinner after we got married with just our parents to make the night even more special. We got a Villa at Disney’s Riviera Resort so I was happy to hear that he has cooked in other Disney’s hotels before. They arrived on time and never rushed us to sit down it was all about what worked for us. The food was unbelievably good we are still talking about it and thinking of when we can use him again. Thank you Joe!!read more

In addition to being an excellent, award-winning cook, Chef Joe is one of the most reliable and detail-oriented guys I’ve ever worked with. He can customize any meal to your exact spec, whether cooking for a small family or designing a weekly meal plan for a professional athlete who requires 5,500+ calories per day, or anything in between. He incorporates personal taste feedback really well and comes up with creative solutions to get healthy nutrients into meals for clients who are picky eaters. He’s timely, efficient, and goes above and beyond to clean the kitchen and prep areas, often leaving them in better condition than he found them. Food is delicious and he’s just a really hard-working, talented dude. Absolute highest level of recommendation I can give.read more

I hired Chef Joe for my mother in laws 80th birthday brunch! He was amazing! The food was great, he had a nice variety and the service was amazing. I highly recommend hiring him for any occasion! He made everything so much easier than doing it ourselves or going to a restaurant. He catered to a pretty picky crowd and everyone loved everything! I have to say that the omelets were really amazing! Everyone from ages 12-90 loved every minute of it! Thanks Chef Joe! I will definitely use you again!read more

Chef Joe and his team created a special dinner for my best friend's bachelorette party. He was right on time and the food he prepared was delicious! The starter we had was caviar nachos which was so light and deliciously made! The main was the stuffed chicken which I must honestly say was one of the best chicken dishes I've had. The dessert was the banana flambe and that was amazing too. Even though the prices may be slightly pricier compared to eating out at a mid-high range restaurant, the overall experience and the quality of the meal provided is well worth it! Definitely recommend this personal chef!read more

I can't say enough good things about Chef Joe and My Chef Orlando. I was planning a dinner for my husbands 50th birthday. I love to eat and the menu had so many delicious options it was hard to narrow it down. Chef Joe was super quick to reply to both email and phone calls and helped us craft the perfect menu for everyone and even had a vegetarian option for two of our guests. We had a delicious plated four course meal and by the end we were so full and happy we barely moved. If you're thinking about using My Chef Orlando, just go for it. You won't be disappointed!read more

Chef Joe was amazing! Due to some complications on my end, Chef literally just had a few hours to prepare for one of the dinners he was making my group of 13 and he pulled it off beautifully and professionally. He communicated every step of the way and was very flexible with some of the dietary restrictions in our group - one of which being vegan. The second night he prepared dinner was just as good (if not better) than the first night. If you're looking for a 5 star, stress free private dining experience, Chef Joe is the one to call.read more

Chef Joe and his team far exceeded my expectations for my wedding day! Not only was this the best day of my life, it was the best food of my life! The food was the hit of the party, and Chef Joe and his team went above and beyond to entertain our guests while also preparing the food EXACTLY as we requested. When I first interacted with Chef Joe, I had a pretty good idea of how I wanted the food to be at my wedding, and he took it and ran with it! I asked that he have a table side demonstration of the food, and he was a STAR! All of my Guests thought this was the highlight of the meal, and it truly was. Best Caesar salad of my life!!!Chef Joe’s team was on top of service, constantly refilling beverages, clearing plates, and making sure everyone had everything that they needed. They were on time, kind, and extremely organized and cleaned the kitchen better than they found it. I truly cannot say enough good things about Chef Joe and his team. I don’t plan on ever getting married again, but if I did, I would hire Chef Joe. 🙂read more

Joe and Kimberly did a great job from beginning to end! We basically just had to open the front door and again when they left. They custom a few dishes to those who had allergies or diet restrictions, while allowing the rest of the group (11) full on flavor. I tried some new food items that were a little out of my “norm” and was wonderfully surprised on how much I liked them. Prep, service, pace between courses, presentation, taste, and cleanup where all 5 stars!read more

I may have requested a very hearty brunch but boy did you deliver!!! Thank you again so much for such a great meal and top notch service!

If you want to impress, this is who you must call. Chef Joe far surpassed my expectations. Eight of us were staying in a beautiful home on a golf course in Orlando and wanted to do something a little different than the norm. It was great to not have to think about going out to a restaurant after a long day on the links. Joe and Kimberley arrived on time and began to prepare the gourmet feast that would put any chef to the test. While dinner was being prepared, they put out an ample spread of a variety of cheeses, nuts, and spreads to enjoy as the house filled with the aroma of brewing meal. We started with a delicious and spice vegetable verde soup made with tomatillos and garnished with sour cream. It was a delectable starter. The endive salad followed and it was a great experience of textures and flavors which included apples, cheese, dried cherries and mixed greens with a scrumptiously light dressing. We could have stopped at this point, but the best was yet to come. We chose a non-traditional surf and turf dinner that was highlighted by a perfectly cooked Filet Mignon paired with a pan seared Tilapia that literally melted in your mouth as it was so tender, flaky and light. The accompanying veggies were brussel sprouts, baby yellow carrots, and roasted purple potatoes. To heighten our decadence we were offered a duo of mousse (chocolate & vanilla) garnished with some fresh fruit and a delicious down home versions of a fresh baked apple pie thingy with Ice Cream. Multi Yums on every course. We chose to do wine pairings with the meal and Kimberley, who is quite well versed in her wine knowledge, made for an interesting presentation and explanation with each pairing. The pair then proceeded to clean the kitchen and the dishes and left us feeling like royalty. If you are that someone that likes to do things the right way...this is the private chef experience for you.read more

Chef Joe came and cooked for 15 of us. He was very professional and his food was wonderful. We made a few last minute changes and Chef Joe accommodated us at every turn. The price we paid for the level of service and quality of the dinner was a bargain. I wouldn’t hesitate to have them come over and make us dinner again. We did the buffet menu and I would recommend the Grouper and the Filet as both were excellent. Thanks and if we ever are back in Orlando we will do business with the Chef again.read more

Chef Joe and Kimberly were amazing!!! We are a family of 19 people and we rented a Villa at the Reunion Resort during the Christmas Week of 2017. In our family of 19, we have vegetarians, vegans, and members who have celiac disease. During that holiday week, Chef Joe prepared breakfasts and dinners for the whole family. He made sure that there were meals for everyone to enjoy. He was very careful to inform the necessary family members what was gluten-free, dairy-free, etc. More importantly, the food was delicious!!! Every meal was better than the next!!! In addition, Chef Joe kept the dinners interesting by hosting different theme nights – Mexican Night, Barbecue Night, Asian Night, etc. We highly recommend Chef Joe for your cooking/catering needs. He will take care of everything for you. Moreover, Chef Joe and Kimberly are kind, friendly and caring - very important “ingredients” needed in cooking.read more

I'm currently in a training program for work and have to deal with mediocre food on a daily basis at our employee cafeteria. When I visited my friends in Orlando, we decided to have an impromptu dinner party at home. We called My Chef Orlando and it was such a treat. Chef Joe cooked, served, and cleaned. We didn't have to leave the house or lift a finger and the food was amazing. I was so happy to have a home cooked meal and dread having to return to the daily grind of cafeteria food. I can't wait to return to the area and have another experience!read more

We hired Joe last week for a three-day catering event for 10 adults and 10 kids up to age 7. He came up with the Intriguing menu for the adults and was very flexible working with the kids. My experience with him for the months working up prior to our visit was exceptional. He was responsive in contacts willing to work within budgets, and showed good originality with menus to meet multiple taste. On the day we were to arrive at our house at The Reunion Resort we were change to a new location last minute and Joe was incredibly accommodating to make the rest of our experience the pleasure. He and Chris we're just awesome! They were punctual, serve excellent food, there was plenty of extra leftovers, and then service with cleanup and the little extras really made it a hit with our whole group. I would highly recommend him in his team for any events you may have. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Joe and Chris for making it an exceptional trip for family and friends.read more

We hired My Chef to cater a dinner to celebrate my sons leaving for college. What an amazing way to gather the family and send them off. Instead of stressing over cooking, cleaning, or going out, we were treated to restaurant quality food in the comfort of our home. While one member of the team provided table service (clearing plates, serving beverages, setting silverware for the next course, etc.), Chef Joe made magic in the kitchen. I'm still amazed at how efficiently he was able to work in our small kitchen! I look forward to the next opportunity to use this service.read more

My expectations for hosting a private work dinner party for 25 people were sky-high since I was planning the entire event from Texas, but Joe and his team met every single one of them with FLYING colors.Over the course of two months, I gave Joe a million questions/requests, and he answered and took them all with ease and understanding. When I had a change he was flexible and accommodating to my needs, which is HUGE in my book.He was able to help me come up with a classy menu featuring 10 small plates ranging from delicious filet mignon, crab cakes, spinach sun-dried tomatoes, flour-less chocolate cake and other small decadent plates for our guests--all which had superior attention-to-detail and beautiful presentation. The guests all raved about how amazingly delicious the food was!!!Joe's staff was professional, attentive to our guests and efficient with set up and clean up. They arrived an hour before our guests did in order to set up and prep the food. Throughout the night, his staff walked around and made sure people were served attentively. I really appreciated that I was able to hire bar-tending services through his company, which allowed for our guests to be served wine/beer and also have a cocktail made as well.Overall, the whole dinner event couldn't have gone smoother and I have Joe and his amazing team to thank. I got numerous accolades at work for pulling off such a flawless event, but I have Joe and his entire team to thank. I will definitely be using My Chef Orlando for our work event next year.Book them for your event, hands down you won't regret it!!!!read more

If you are looking for a chef for an in-house party please give chef Joe and Kim your consideration. We had a small... (12 total) special milestone birthday dinner for my wife and when a couple of guests expressed reluctance to going out I researched private chef options and came across My Chef and I'm really glad I did. I couldn't have been more pleased with how the evening turned out.read more

I can't say enough good things about Chef Joe and My Chef Orlando. I was planning a dinner for my husbands 50th... birthday. I love to eat and the menu had so many delicious options it was hard to narrow it down. Chef Joe was super quick to reply to both email and phone calls and helped us craft the perfect menu for everyone and even had a vegetarian option for two of our guests. We had a delicious plated four course meal and by the end we were so full and happy we barely moved. If you're thinking about using My Chef Orlando, just go for it. You won't be disappointed!read more

I had Chef Joe and his staff prepare a sit down dinner for 40 people which were family & friends for my 70th birthday.... The food and presentation was absolutely beautiful and delicious.

WOW pretty much sums up our experience with My Chef Orlando! Joe made us the most delicious meal and Kimberly helped... with the ambiance to make it THE most perfect date night IN possible! For anyone looking for a 5-star restaurant meal and service, but in the comfort of your own home, definitely go with My Chef Orlando. From the stellar communication beforehand to the wide range of delicious menu choices, this experience was top notch from start to finish. I truly do not know if I ever had a better filet mignon!! I especially loved the polaroid keepsake photo they took of us at evening's end. This was a night both my husband and I will never forget! Thank you, Joe!!read more

Joe and Kimberly did a great job from beginning to end! We basically just had to open the front door and again when... they left. They customized a few dishes to those who had allergies or diet restrictions, while allowing the rest of the group (11) full on flavor. I tried some new food items that were a little out of my “norm” and was wonderfully surprised on how much I liked them. Prep, service, pace between courses, presentation, taste, and cleanup were all 5 stars!read more

My company hosted a several day event with Chef Joe catering the dinners and lunches. The food was excellent. I was... extremely impressed with the care that he took to meet all of the various food sensitivities, allergies and preferences. One of our group had not indicated some of her preferences ahead of time but once he heard about her needs, he created a meal just for her. I was delighted with the care he took to make everything wonderful for everyone.read more

We had friends of over 20 years visit from out of town and they surprised us with this amazing meal. Chef Joe gave us... an incredible experience. He was so accommodating as we had several people with dietary restrictions. We had cioppino, coconut shrimp, chicken in an herb butter sauce, salad, flatbread, beef wellington, lentils and a chocolate flourless cake. Every dish was bursting with flavor and with great ingredients. We definitely recommend Chef Joe if you are looking for an amazing meal in the comfort of your own home.read more

If you want to impress, this is who you must call. Chef Joe far surpassed my expectations. Eight of us were staying... in a beautiful home on a golf course in Orlando and wanted to do something a little different than the norm. It was great to not have to think about going out to a restaurant after a long day on the links. Joe and Kimberley arrived on time and began to prepare the gourmet feast that would put any chef to the test. While dinner was being prepared, they put out an ample spread of a variety of cheeses, nuts, and spreads to enjoy as the house filled with the aroma of brewing meal. We started with a delicious and spice vegetable verde soup made with tomatillos and garnished with sour cream. It was a delectable starter. The endive salad followed and it was a great experience of textures and flavors which included apples, cheese, dried cherries and mixed greens with a scrumptiously light dressing. We could have stopped at this point, but the best was yet to come. We chose a non-traditional surf and turf dinner that was highlighted by a perfectly cooked Filet Mignon paired with a pan seared Tilapia that literally melted in your mouth as it was so tender, flaky and light. The accompanying veggies were brussel sprouts, baby yellow carrots, and roasted purple potatoes. To heighten our decadence we were offered a duo of mousse (chocolate & vanilla) garnished with some fresh fruit and a delicious down home versions of a fresh baked apple pie thingy with Ice Cream. Multi Yums on every course. We chose to do wine pairings with the meal and Kimberley, who is quite well versed in her wine knowledge, made for an interesting presentation and explanation with each pairing. The pair then proceeded to clean the kitchen and the dishes and left us feeling like royalty. If you are that someone that likes to do things the right way...this is the private chef experience for you.read more

Chef Joe & Kimberly provided one of the best dinners I have ever had. The flavors in everything made was so delicious!... Our company normally goes out to restaurants for our Holiday parties but this year we decided on a personal chef instead and it was such a great choice! We had such a great time being able to talk and play games without feeling constricted to a table in a restaurant. Chef Joe & Kimberly set everything up so beautifully AND even left everything spotless afterwards. Thank you so much for such an amazing dinner. It was a pleasure to meet you both.read more

Absolutely the best choice for your dinner party! Chef Joe and Kimberly were amazing. Obviously when you hire a chef... your primary concern is the taste of the food. The flavors were delicious. As a large group from New York many of us have been to some of the best restaurants. Unanimously, we all agreed Chefs fillet mignon was the best we have had. Chef Joe prepared each different part of our meal incorporating flavor as well as presentation. One item looked prettier than the next. From our appetizers to our delicious macaroons at the end of the meal, every single detail was done to perfection. Since there were several people at our dinner, the icing on the cake was that once we were done eating, our entire kitchen and dining area were spotless. Joe and Kimberly cleaned every inch of the space. Having never hired a traveling chef before I was very anxious and was hoping it all went well. I can tell you the whole evening surpassed my every expectation. I highly recommend My Chef.read more

My expectations for hosting a private work dinner party for 25 people were sky-high since I was planning the entire... event from Texas, but Joe and his team met every single one of them with FLYING colors. Over the course of two months, I gave Joe a million questions/requests, and he answered and took them all with ease and understanding. When I had a change he was flexible and accommodating to my needs, which is HUGE in my book. He was able to help me come up with a classy menu featuring 10 small plates ranging from delicious filet mignon, crab cakes, spinach sun-dried tomatoes, flour-less chocolate cake and other small decadent plates for our guests--all which had superior attention-to-detail and beautiful presentation. The guests all raved about how amazingly delicious the food was!!! Joe's staff was professional, attentive to our guests and efficient with set up and clean up. They arrived an hour before our guests did in order to set up and prep the food. Throughout the night, his staff walked around and made sure people were served attentively. I really appreciated that I was able to hire bar-tending services through his company, which allowed for our guests to be served wine/beer and also have a cocktail made as well. Overall, the whole dinner event couldn't have gone smoother and I have Joe and his amazing team to thank. I got numerous accolades at work for pulling off such a flawless event, but I have Joe and his entire team to thank. I will definitely be using My Chef Orlando for our work event next year. Book them for your event, hands down you won't regret it!!!!read more

Chef Joe came to our rented house while we were on vacation. The meal was a great experience for all 14 of us, ranging... in age from 57 to 16 months. Everyone was delighted with the evening. For the adults he made a 5 course tasting menu, one course better than the next! My favorite was the spring pea risotto. For the kids, chicken and mac and cheese. They loved it! Then when we were finished everything was totally clean like it never happened. We will surely do this again!read more

Last Christmas, I received a gift card toward a dinner in my home prepared by Chef Joe Pannulo. It turned out to be an... amazing evening and an extraordinary dining experience. Joe let me know he had brought everything he needed to prepare the dinner including cookware, utensils, etc. and that I should feel free to entertain our guests. He wasn't kidding! I was able to enjoy myself the entire evening while he took care of everything. The table was beautifully set and included fancy menus to describe each course at each of our places. When serving us the courses, Joe poured our waters and wine, told us a bit about our food and made sure we were relaxed and enjoying the meal. The food was so delicious! Each course was something new and inventive to us. We started with a light endive salad, had a delicious grouper and polenta entree and ended with the presentation of blazing pan of bananas flambé that was then served to us with ice cream. After dinner, before I could blink, Joe had loaded all his supplies in his car and my kitchen was spotless. He was very professional, gracious, efficient, knowledgeable and talented and provided us with an unforgettable evening. The next time I need to cater or wish to have a chef cook in my home, I plan to hire the My Chef team again.read more
