Laura's meal service is great. The meals are delicious, healthy and wholesome. You can tell she cooks with care! She is able to customize wonderful meals for me and my husband as well as making healthy meals for my daughter. She is creative and able to work extremely well with our requests. Her snacks are amazing! Her prices are also very reasonable for New York City. We are so glad we met her and love her meals!

"Laura's catering of my father's 80th birthday party was the best possible decision! We debated having a fancy meal out to celebrate, but decided an in-home setting was best, and we really got the best of both worlds: delicious, gourmet food prepared and presented beautifully for us in the comfort of our home. Laura was like a ninja chef, secretly floating in the background while we all enjoyed the party with nary a care in the world. My father, whole family and friends all remarked on how delicious, seasonally curated and thoughtful the cuisine was. Thank you, Laura!"

Laura is a godsend. Her meals are delicious and meticulously tailored to her clients’ needs. Due to food intolerances, I’m on a strict low-FODMAP/Paleo diet. This diet is very limiting, and yet, Laura manages to make meals for me that are varied, artfully prepared, and adhere to my needs perfectly. In fact, Laura’s food is so mouthwatering that, upon seeing my meals, my fiancé insisted on ordering from Laura too. Now both of us eagerly await her menu options each week (which she thoughtfully customizes for our very different palates). I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I couldn't be happier with Laura's meal service. First and foremost, everything she makes is restaurant quality (or better!) and even after months of meals, she's never given me something I didn't like. What's more, I've been able to eat much healthier after subscribing. I just gave her the parameters of what I wanted, and she custom made (and delivered) meals that were healthy and tasty. You can't get better food for that price in New York City.

Laura Denby catered two of by business's Christmas parties and at least two of my private parties with friends. She is an excellent chef and was able to create dishes exactly as she described when we were planning the menus. Our company could not stop complimenting the food she served and her amazingly personable service. Her food presentation was beautiful and she made just enough food that we were able to give out some leftovers, which is always a treat for my staff and my family. She and her assistant cleaned up at the end of each event, wrapped all the leftovers and placed everything in the fridge, washed whatever had to be washed, and wiped down all the counters. My kitchen was spotless!! I would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for a talented, trustworthy and caring chef.
