“When I hired Passion for the Palate for my the holiday party I was hosting for a parent group at my daughters school I was hopeful that we would have great food and great service. However, what we received was far better. The quality of the food, the menu offerings, the personal attention from Chef Kimberly VanKline, and the top notch service made our event the talk of the school. The parents are still praising Chef Kimberly…I was asked more then a dozen times throughout the night for her contact information. The parents and school were so impressed, as I. Not even three days later was I reaching back out to Chef Kimberly to cater another event. Passion for the Palate perfectly describes her company as the passion for what she does shines through her work.”

“While I was on the set filming Just Right I was on a strict diet, Chef Kimberly prepared three fish dishes that were all excellent and not lacking in flavor. She took the time to explain each dish and her presentation was outstanding.”

“Kimberly, Kenny, and their delightful staff significantly helped create a fantastic launch party for our website Style for Hire. A DELICIOUS menu was created to meet our needs without sacrificing the quality and beauty that Kimberly is best known for. Our entire team and guests were in awe of the effort that the Passion for the Palate team put into every detail from concept, to creation, to serving. On the evening of our event it was all smiles and professionalism from the staff. We are still receiving compliments 3 months later, and could not have been happier with the service and food we received!”

“Chef Kimberly VanKline is amazing. I hired Chef Kimberly for a surprise romantic valentine dinner with my husband and she went above and beyond to ensure we had a perfect night, she was very professional and accommodating. We felt like we were in a 5 start restaurant but it was better because we in the comfort of our own home! I cannot put in words how happy I was to find someone that truly loves what they do and it definitely showed. Best crab cakes we ever had by the way”

“I never write reviews. Not because I don’t want to, but usually I just don’t have time or forget (I know – there are more important people than me that find time to write reviews). But, the fact that I have remembered and made time to do write this is a testament to Chef Kimberly VanKline. Recently my wife and I were celebrating her birthday. However due to chemotherapy I was afraid she would not have the energy to go out to a nice dinner. I called Chef VanKline and immediately knew that she was a God send. My wife was overwhelmed. It was a perfect evening. The food was better than anything we would have gotten at a restaurant! Thank you again Chef Van Kline, you were AWESOME! See you this summer”

“Chef Kimberly VanKline was highly recommended to me through a family member of mine that had the pleasure of tasting her food. I recently hired her for a dinner event at my home for a party of eight. I have been looking for the perfect chef for months now because of the bad experiences I have had with chefs in my past. I was overwhelmed with Chef Kimberly professionalism. Her service is phenomenal, her hospitality is magnificent, & her presentation is wonderful. My friends and I was so impressed with her performance that I hired her on the spot for my cocktail event for a party of 50 people in March. My girlfriends have already recommended her to friends and Boss. I look forward to a long business relationship with Chef Kimberly VanKline………..Chef Kimberly you ROCK.!”

“Recently I decided to surprise my husband with an intimate dinner for two for our wedding anniversary. At first I was hesitant, due to a bad experience with a different chef/catering service, but Chef Van Kline was great; she made planning this event easy and stress free for me. I liked that although this was not a large event she still treated it as if was just as important as any other event. My husband was impressed with the quality, taste and presentation of the food. He stated it was better than going to a 5 restaurant. There is a reason why chef Van Kline has received 4 or more stars from other yelpers.”

“I recently utilized this service for a gathering of a small group of friends in my home. I initially had a bit of uncertainty, given that I am a “Type A” personality and I like for things to be carried out a certain way. I have to say that any concerns I had were eradicated after my experience. Chef Van Kline was tremendous; both from a perspective of presentation as well as the quality of the cuisine. All of my friends have not stopped talking about how incredible the food was, as well as how creative the drinks were. I am not a person who often writes reviews, but after my experience with Chef Van Kline, I felt utterly compelled to express what a great pleasure it was to work with her. Needless to say, I will definitely be hiring Chef VanKline again.”
