Testimonials

I was very happy with the food and service…the food was delicious, and the service and clean up was professional and friendly. I would definitely use Cristo’s kitchen again. -Eileen T.

Great food. Had Tilapia tacos, and a mexican chocolate pudding that blew our socks off. -Trecia R.

Chris, I can’t believe how good everything is. Had the chicken parm and brussel sprouts for lunch and couldn’t believe how not generic, unique, flavorful both were.  Am a happy guy! -Ray D.

I located Chris when my previous chef had to quit to take care of a troubled child. It is now going on two years that I have used Chris and I have been very pleased with his food prep for my wife and myself. Our needs are fairly straight-forward and simple, no gourmet cooking or experimental meals. Chris’s cooking fits our bill. He prepares two weeks’ meals at a time, dinners only and we freeze most. The food is well-prepared, tasty and ample. He is impressively reliable and punctual, and always amenable to changing the menu at my request. -Don L.

Chris is an AMAZING cook! He is the 5th person I have had cooking for us on a regular basis over the past five years and the best so far. There were also countless others off of Craigslist I have tried that weren’t even good enough to hire.
Chris has been cooking for us 2x, sometimes 3x, per week. Chris’s food is delicious and creative, and he listens to what I tell him about our likes and dislikes. I have tried so many different people and businesses…I am sure you will not find anyone better. He is also reliable and totally flexible. I can’t say enough good things about him! -Arden R.

Chef Cristo catered my wedding on September 10th, 2011 for 85 people. Not only was the food excellent, the service was as well. He accommodated for everything we wanted within our budget and more. When other caterers said no or wanted to change things, Chef Cristo said YES! The appetizers were wonderful and plentiful (you HAVE to try the stuffed cherry tomatoes). The salad was amazing and could have just eaten that for a meal. For our choice of entrees we had roast at a carving station (which we had such a hard time finding someone to do), lemon-pepper chicken and vegetarian stuffed eggplant served with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus and loved it all! The whole night went seamlessly and I would highly recommend Cristo’s Kitchen for any event! -Chandra Febonio

Chef Cristo catered my wedding morning brunch for me and my bridesmaids – he was fantastic! Everything was fresh and delicious, and the presentation was beautiful. I specifically asked for finger foods that wouldn’t be too filling or make me and my bridesmaids feel bloated, and he came up with a perfect menu. I not only ate wonderful food, I had so much energy throughout the rest of the day (like most brides, I didn’t have time to touch my dinner at the actual wedding reception). Chef Cristo also made very tasty white peach champagne floats – a hit with the girls! Eating delectable gourmet food while I was getting ready with my bridesmaids was a perfect way to start the busy day – thank you, Chef Cristo! -Mickela Mallozzi

I have had the privilege of enjoying a number of Chef Cristo’s specialties throughout the past few years. He has never ceased to impress! So far my favorites have been his mango and shrimp spring rolls and his red velvet cupcakes…delicious!!! Chef Cristo challenges your standard recipes to create the most unforgettable concoctions. I love when Chef Cristo comes to visit…I know I’ll be in for a treat! -Mary Jo Wilson

Chef Cristo catered a 1:00 pm brunch – Belated Wedding reception in a friend’s home. He was easy to work with from afar (Ft Worth, Texas) and also, worked well with my hostess. He helped decide quantities, which were quite adequate. The food was delicious, warm or cold as the case should be, and quite fresh. He accommodated our special request for pink (cherry) frosted white and raspberry frosted chocolate cup cakes on a pretty three-tiered stand, in lieu of a wedding cake, since it was a “Come & Go” affair. He provided all the dishes, flatware and glasses. He and his associate set-up, cleaned-up and tended to the drinks. We could not have asked for more!! -Franji C.
