“J-Culinary catered a barbecue for 50 people this past spring the day after my daughter’s wedding. Jake arrived at the appointed hour with his assistant and in short order was set up to feed our guests. The menu included grilled shrimp skewers and barbecued ribs, potato and cauliflower mash, asparagus and carrots, fresh fruit, and a magnificent cheese patter. He had slow cooked the ribs in advance and finished them on our grill. Our guests raved! Everything tasted great and was beautifully presented. From set up to clean up Jake delivered exactly as promised and communicated well with me in advance. Our expectations were more than met and I am pleased to recommend J-Culinary for your catering needs.

“Jake Haendel brings a multitude of talents to his catering business. Not only is he an excellent chef with superb and diverse knowledge of foods, fresh ingredients and menu planning – but he also is a very smart and savy business man who knows how to service the professional business person, the family that wants personal cooking, the person who wants to cater a party or just someone who wants to entertain!  Having used his talents many times over the years I know how good his food tastes, how organized and efficient he is while cooking and preparing but also how much he loves what he does!!! No one will be disappointed if you hire J-Culinary to cater your next event whether large or small – you will be thrilled.

“Couture guides first annual pink carpet fashion show wouldn’t of been possible if it wasn’t for the overwhelming support of Jake and his wonderful team. He took everything into considerations from food choice of what was in season to trying to have a pink theme throughout his food for the breast cancer event. This event hit close to his heart and was one of the main reasons why we loved working with him, because he truly cared about the cause and our guest. He not only prepared a first class five star cuisine, but helped with getting other prep work for the event. I am truly grateful that I had the pleasure of working with him and his team, and I cant wait to organize my next event and wouldn’t hesitate to have Jake involved. We had rave reviews about his food and especially about him and how wonderful of a man inside and out he was for helping us make this event so special for all breast cancer survivors and their families.”
