Hey there – thanks so much for an awesome meeting & lunch yesterday – I’m still drooling over the risotto
Brenda M 07/2016

The fish I had tonight was excellent! I will give you more feedback at the end of the week. Thanks,
Lyndsey K 04/2016

Hello!!!
The veal shanks were divine - the olive pesto is what totally takes that dish over the top. We had them Wednesday night, as I couldn't wait for them to be our "first meal" after baby, and it was a good thing we did because Cameron decided to make his appearance a week early and was born on Thursday the 3rd!
We made the chipotle beef on Saturday as our first meal home and stuffed them in charred tortillas with black beans, bibb lettuce, red onion and avocado. De-lish! And we used the leftover shanks from our Wed meal (still have 2 in the freeze) to augment a bolognese Scott made and served that over the lasagna noodles cut to pappardelle nice and topped with the olive pesto. Who said being a new mom isn't glamorous!

Pamela! Christmas dinner was AMAZING!!! There was soooo much food - everyone rolled out of my house! I really can't thank you enough - it was a tremendous help - plus absolutely delicious!!! I've attached the few photos I took.
I hope you had a relaxing evening and a well deserved week of rest. Hope to see you in 2016!!!
Michelle R 12/2015

Well my dear.....you truly outdid yourself. What an awesome meal, awesome presentation and awesome service. Thank you!!!! Can't get over how much nicer it was to entertain that way...I have never enjoyed one of my own dinner party's so much (and..I had enough energy at 11 pm to go out to another party! We didn't get home till 2am ....and I had time to run this morning as clean up was miniscule).
Thanks again! Fantastic evening.
Nadia & Doug P 11/2015

Thank you so much! We had the halibut tonight and it was amazing. We can't wait to try the other dishes.
Amanda D 11/2015

Hi Pamela,
Great dinner, everyone raved about it.
It was a pleasure meeting you. We will certainly keep you in mind for any future dinner parties.
Regards,
Mary P 11/2015

Love the swordfish and mussels. Love it all. Thank you.
Eleanor W 09/2015

Hi Pamela,
Our dinner was amazing! We were so excited! So delicious. I love how there is so much variety and my favourite part is the sauce for the meats. I sent a picture of the food to Rachelle saying she is the most thoughtful sister in law. Thanks again for everything!
Jessica F 09/2015

Dinner was delicious and plentiful, my husband and I only finished half the portion last night and we enjoyed the other half this evening.
Thank you very much for coming to cook for us, a brand new experience we never had before, something we will brag about when we have conversations with our friends.
Keep up the good work!
Winnie W 06/2015

Hi Pamela
Was a busy week - have been meaning to get back to you. We loved the entrees. Justin and I particularly enjoyed the ratatouille. The boys really enjoyed the salmon and loved the quinoa/rice- so that would be great. The chickpea soup was great too. Really liked the curry - lovely flavor. Gavin did like the soup, which is great!
Thanks!
Terry B 04/2015

We wondered if it might be a little strange having someone else cook for us in our own home, but Pamela's friendly yet professional manner immediately put us at ease. She is thoroughly prepared and unobtrusive and served us a truly elegant meal. From the warming soup to the refreshing salad to the tender risotto, all her dishes were intensely flavorful and creative without being heavy. She also left our kitchen in immaculate condition. Whether you need a regular hand with eating healthfully and well, or whether you just want to splash out and treat yourself, we highly recommend the Cheferential experience!
Samantha T & Avril C 01/2015

We threw an after-Christmas party and were very impressed with our experience with Chef Pamela. She gave us menu choices after listening to our guidelines. We chose a 5-course meal. Chef Pamela arrived at noon with all of her cooking paraphernalia, groceries and sundries, and left around 7ish. Everything was cooked in our kitchen during that time. Chef had a server to assist her and both of their presence were inconspicuous
The evening was beyond our expectation - no cooking or cleaning, essentially fine dining experience in the comfort of own home. Chef Pamela met all expectations with an open-mind - gluten-free, dairy-free, allergies and food preferences. We were fussy! The dinner was like a mouth-watering layered cake, each course complimented the previous. The presentation exceeded the description of each course - i.e. Seared scallops with whiskey-mushroom sauce, followed by Chestnut and Apple soup, etc. We highly recommend Chef Pamela and plan to have her back.
Ann & Byron G 12/2014

Hi Pamela
Dinner was a success! Everyone wants to know where the tenderloin came from. I served it around 8:30 and it was perfectly done ...rare and fork tender!!!
And the potato and celery root was a big hit too.
Overall, a huge success!
Thank you again.
Jan S 12/2014

Hi Pamela.
I am enjoying my meals, the soup, halibut, chicken, all delicious.
Marlene H 12/2014

Hi Pamela,
So far, everything has been great. The kids LOVE the soup and Sofia ate the salmon with sweet potato last night (tasted it), it was great. Bison is on the menu tonight!
The menu for next week looks great!
Tracy H 10/2014

Hi Pamela, the menu for my next service looks good.
I can REALLY get used to this!!! Thanks again - appreciate your services.
Estrella F 08/2014

Sanda, Kevin & Rosie M 12/2013

Hi Pamela,
Thank you so much for a fantastic evening, everyone loved the food and service. Next party I have you will be getting a call or email and I will recommend you to all my friends and family.
You truly made Diana's birthday a birthday she won't forget.
Thanks again.
Krista T 09/2013

Hello Pamela,
Thank you so much for everything. A great evening was had by all. Delicious! Thanks for saving the goodies. I really appreciate how wonderful it was to have you three ladies in the house. Absolutely seamless in your service!
Thanks again,
Nandita & Julian W 07/2013

Hello Pamela,
Hope you had a great weekend.
I've had a chance to enjoy all three dishes so far, and love every one of them! There's actually enough for leftovers for lunch the next day. So perfect.
Jennifer K 07/2013

Hi Pamela,
I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to you and your catering business Cheferential Treatment Personal Chef Service for your generous food and time contribution to the ART AROUND THE BENZ. This was a new event for the May Court Club and though we have not had our wrap-up meeting as of yet, I believe it was a huge success. This event started as a low key event. Little did we know it was going to be such a big hit. I have to thank you for being part of it, without your contribution of delicious food it would just not have been the same.
This year The May Court Club of Oakville will be giving back to the Oakville Community almost $175,000. This is possible because of generous donors like yourself lending a hand to our Club and allowing us to raise funds for the community.
I will keep you posted on future May Court projects. I hope the evening was successful for you and gave you the opportunity to make contact with some potential clients.
Speak to you soon,
Rosa C 06/2013

Hello Pamela
New menu looks good.
Food was great so far.
Katharine G 05/2013

Pamela,
Thanks so much for making a wonderful Easter dinner for our family. Aubrey and I thoroughly enjoyed the Soups & Stews class at the LCBO this winter with you.
Thanks again.
Heather 03/2013

Hi Pamela
The dessert was amazing. Your instructions for the souffles were spot on! Everyone enjoyed the meal! Thank you so much for the treat!
Happy Easter
Aubrey D 03/2013

Pamela,
Thank you for preparing a lovely dinner.
Jim K 03/2013

Hi Pamela
Hope your week is going well!
Just wanted to let you know that all of the meals this week are keepers!
Laurens fav was the Moroccan meal.
She was eating the dressing out of the dish a spoonful at a time!!
Charlene L 02/2013

Hi Pamela,
First things first. From Kylah: " I don't like it. I LOVE it". That was about the beef stew and I couldn't agree more.
I'm having the chowder as we speak and that's divine too. To be honest I've never had chowder because I thought it was cream based (like an Alfredo kind of cream sauce) which I'm not a fan of at all.
Yesterday, after getting home from all the pick-ups & drop-offs, I can't tell you the sense of relief it gave me to get home and not have to scramble something up for dinner. Especially with my little whipper-snapper biting at my ankles calling out "foody foody foody".
I'm SUPER excited to see what's in store for us next week!
Thank you Pamela!
Lena G 01/2013

Hi Pamela,
I cannot thank you enough for all your work and the amazing food served at my husband's milestone birthday party. The level of detail reviewed with me throughout the process to ensure I had not forgotten anything for the party and to see how you and your team could assist; the ease with which both you and Lynn came into my home and took over my kitchen for the food preparation allowing me to complete other errands; the unobtrusive mixing of your wait team amongst the guess for serving the food; the clean-up and even storage of leftovers (which were just as good the next day) allowed me to enjoy a memorable night with friends and family.
And then there was the food! Amazing!
The selections from your Winter Cocktail menu were fantastic.
It would be difficult to pick a favourite as they were all so good.
Our guests were equally as impressed as I was with the service and the food. Let's just say your cards went home with several people that night.
Thank you again! I have no hesitation recommending you and will definitely be using your services again.
All the best,
Michele S 01/2013

Thanks Pamela…it was fun.
We don’t normally throw parties. But you made it easy!
Andy K 09/2012

Cioppino and salad dinner tonight. OMG!!!!!!! Loved it (all three of us). Embarrassingly, Ben even drank up the salad dressing at the bottom of his bowl. Amazing dinner. Thank you thank you.
I am actually sitting in the backyard looking at magazines and getting caught up on personal emails. That has never happened before on a weeknight.
The only problem I foresee is the enticing smells and menus. I've already tasted the cauliflower, cioppino AND tikka masala. So flavourful, delicious...totally amazing.
Tomorrow I will go for a long walk with Gracie with my newfound time.
Can't wait for dinner!!! :) Thanks so much
Nadia P. 09/2012

Pamela, a quick note of thanks for the wonderful dinner party experience you created for us last weekend. It was a very special occasion for us, and all the guests were as impressed as we were. You worked with us to create the perfect menu, and took care of all the small extras, like ordering all the right rentals, picking a wonderful colour theme, and setting the table just so. I can’t tell you how fantastic it was to know that I had 12 guests arriving for a 50th wedding anniversary dinner party, and all I had to do was be there to let you in the house. Everything seemed to just miraculously “appear”, and I was truly able to enjoy a restaurant feel in our own home, and enjoy the company of our guests from the dining chair, and not from the typical dinner host’s station in front of the kitchen sink! Just as importantly as the food “appearing”, was the fact that everything also “disappeared”; whisked away by Ray (who was wonderful), and a clean kitchen defying the knowledge that you were ever there. We found you on the internet, but we were immediately comfortable with your responsiveness, recommendations and proposal. We are so glad we went with our instinct and had you spearhead this very special night for us; it was perfect on all fronts. Can’t wait to have you back, Pamela!
With heartfelt thanks,
Dani & Scott F. 09/2012

The food was amazing thank u so much. Next time I host an event I will call u. By then the kitchen reno will be complete and the dishwasher will be installed.
Cheers
Tina M. 08/2012

At the beginning of the summer, my husband and I along with 6 of our family members and friends were treated to an evening of culinary delights.  Chef Pamela wowed all of our guests from the moment we could smell the aromas making their way from the kitchen to our table.  From the very first mouthful of her exquisite smoked salmon cakes with lemon-herb aioli to the last bite of her dark chocolate torte, we were in food heaven.  I would recommend Cheferential Treatment to anyone looking to enjoy an evening of fantastic food combined with friendly and professional service from the comfort of your own home.
Jacqueline & Richard H. 06/2012

Hi Pamela,
Just wanted to let you know that the food is AMAZING!!!!! The fish stew is especially delicious.  
Thanks again,
Theresa H. 05/2012

Hi Pamela, 
I just wanted to say thanks, we had such a good time – I loved the food, it was amazing and all the guests really enjoyed it. They are all asking for your name and number! 
Sandra M. 03/2012

Hi Pamela, 
Thanks for coming to our place to prepare the appetizers. We got to sample some of your food and the guests liked the potato appetizers particularly. 
Thanks for your help.  
Sumathi S. 02/2012

OMG the fish stew was amazing. Rich is smiling ear to ear! He said u blow Gabe out of the water and I agree :)
Looking forward to trying the rest. I'm sure I will sample while freezing tonight :)
Looking forward to having you again!
Bev S. 10/2011

Pamela,
Thank you so much for the great meal and wonderful service. We all enjoyed it and even the leftovers. Your team was great and took to the foreign kitchen and tight serving space easily.
Jacqueline S. 6/2011

Thanks Pamela. Your food was delicious and we all had a wonderful time Saturday night. I would not hesitate to call again for another occasion.
Gillian W. 5/2011

The lamb was amazing - Bruce hummed all through dinner and had to have seconds!! Everything just melted in our mouths.
Fabulous, thanks.
Colleen S. 3/2011

Dear Pamela,
I would like to thank you so much for your delicious food. My fiancé and I ordered your Mise en Place service last month and were blown away with the quality of the meals and how easy it was to make them. We are both very busy so after a long day of work to be able to come home and enjoy fine cuisine was a treat. It was like having fine dining delivered to our house every time.
William N D.C. 1/2011

Hi Pamela,
The lasagna was fantastic!! I cut a small piece out of the dish, which ended up overpowering my small plate. I told my father that when we cut lasagna from the store we need a much larger piece to feel full. He also loved his salmon dish and put some of it away for tomorrow. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the delicious food!!
Christine S. 10/2010

I have always been the type of person who plans meals a week at a time and shops accordingly. With that said, my “plan” has been to prepare most meals throughout the course of one day in order to make it easier on me the rest of the week. Well, that is not always possible. With three kids in activities and a work schedule all over the map, I find it difficult to block off the time to do this. I know there are companies out there that allow you to come in and prepare your meals, but if I don’t find the time to do it at home, going elsewhere is not any more alluring to me.

Since most weeknights are usually a rush to one place or another with kids in soccer, dance and hockey, preparing a quick yet healthy meal for my family can be a little challenging. Settling for restaurants and prepared foods from the grocery store is just not an option for me so I finally decided to try Cheferential Treatment’s Mise en Place service.

I started going through Pamela’s menu to see if there would be enough meals that would suit the needs of a family with children who are picky eaters. I was pleased to see that there was plenty to choose from. Each meal description was more mouth-watering than the last. I sent her my choices and scheduled our appointment.

On the agreed day, Pamela arrived at the house with freshly bought food AND everything needed to prepare my previously selected meals. She spent a few hours in my kitchen preparing our meals. They were then packaged, labeled and put into the freezer for me. I was left with a kitchen that looked like it hadn’t been touch and cooking instructions for each meal. I almost felt guilty.
The meals were delicious! Everyone loved them and there was plenty of food. A few selections even allowed us to make two meals of them.

I would recommend the Mise en Place service to anyone who would like the benefits of a home-cooked meal and the convenience of having it ready to heat at your disposal. It is the perfect solution for the family who is continuously on the run.

Thank you Pamela. You have definitely not heard the last of me.
Sandra M. 10/2010

Pamela
Thanks so much for the lovely lunch that we had at Jemma’s!!!
It was so nice to be pampered and the food was amazing.
The menu choices were fabulous!!
Tracy I. 7/2010

I want to thank you for the delicious dinner we had tonight, we had the fish stew and it was excellent I was thrilled to know that the kids loved the chili too.
We are looking forward to trying the other dishes.
Dr. Jawad T. 5/2010

“Wow Pamela, I just walked in the door from work and after my 13 hour day I can't tell you what a pleasure it was to walk in the door and see the beautiful bouquet and bottle of wine. I am just sipping on a glass of Shiraz and waiting for the fish stew to warm up.
What a beautiful presentation... I've already called two people (Mark and Sandy - my brother in law and sister) and a friend to brag .....
I can't tell you how wonderful it was to come home and find my fridge stocked with delicious looking food and a freezer full of future meals.
The magnet and instructions on the fridge was another nice touch.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
Debra K. 2/ 2010

Hi Pamela,
Just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful food you provided to us on New Year’s Eve. Everyone enjoyed them selves and our dinner party went on until 4:00 am! A great time was had by all, and this was partly due to the wonderful food and great service you provided. I would make no hesitation in asking you in the future to create another wonderful evening of fine dining for us, I would also make no hesitation in recommending you to friends and colleagues.
Maxine B. 1/ 2010

Hi Pamela,
Just wanted to drop you a line to say that dinner was a hit – especially the salad and the cake! We really enjoyed having you prepare our family dinner and thank you for the wonderful wine.

ps. If you have a moment we’d really appreciate the recipe for the beet and carrot salad.
