I really don't have enough words to describe Chef of Distinction. The name of the company speaks for itself! Chef Judith the owner agreed to cater my wedding at the last moment with a limited budget and the presentation was worth much much much more than what I paid. My guest really loved the food, chef Judith can really make anything and she is very accommodating. Some of my guest are still talking about the food and how good it was still today. The wait staff was very professional and pleasant. I would recommend Chef of Distinction to everyone I know!

Judith is very professional and reliable. I started planning my wedding only 1 month before the big day. I found Judith online and I couldn't be happier with the outcome of the food served at my wedding.
She is not only worried about the food flavor, which is outstanding, but also about presentation.
Our wedding was perfect thanks to Judith's help.

I went to a tasting event this past weekend after reading good reviews. I'm looking for a caterer that is reliable and makes delicious (not just ok) food. My fiancé and I are so happy to have found Judith! We got to taste 15 different things, and we left arguing about which were our favorites. Judith and her husband are super approachable and professional. They took the time to answer all of our questions and bounce some ideas back and forth. They seem very committed to working with us to stay on budget while still getting great food and special touches we were hoping for. We're looking forward to working with them :)

My wife and I recently got married and we used Chef Of Distinction to cater our reception. We originally interviewed several vendors, but it was very clear to us right away that Judith and Michael understood our needs/ideas. To say that this was a great choice would be an understatement. Judith and Michael are amazing. They are both extremely professional and responsive, and completely over-exceeded our expectations (which were high). Aside from coordinating the majority of event, Judith cooked for 80 guests. Her cooking was INCREDIBLE. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how great the food was and several people said their filet was the best they've ever had. We cannot express enough how fortunate we feel to have worked with Chef Of Distinction, and we give them our highest recommendation. Our wedding day would not have been the same if Judith and Michael weren't a part of it, they are simply the best.

Chef of Distinction, together with its owner Chef Able, have the best quality service and food that I have not seen around for a long time. Chef Judith is an amazing professional, always punctual, and always giving attention to details. I have been working with Chef of Distinction for the past 3 years, and every time, they exceed my expectations. I highly recommend their services to everyone.

Judith went above and beyond what I expected of her - she would always respond quickly to all emails/phone calls leading up to the big day. The food was excellent and she did a great job of making sure all of my linens and chairs (which were all rented) were there on time and were exactly what I had envisioned. I loved the way she did open bar - you tell her how many guests you have (when you give your final head count) and she works with a liquor store to determine how much liquor you will need based on that number. You only have to pay for the bottles of liquor and not a jacked up price per person for an open bar. It saved SO MUCH money that way! Also, I absolutely LOVED the woman she worked with for cakes - my cake was PHENOMENAL - everyone commented on and loved it and it looked exactly like the picture I picked out.
Judith was absolutely wonderful and I highly recommend her for anyone's wedding!

Judith is absolutely amazing. We hired her for our wedding in October and, while it wasn't a destination wedding for us, it was for her. As such, she had some issues finding one particular ingredient that would have been no problem to find in Florida but wasn't readily available in Virginia. Problem? Nope. On the fly, she altered the dish to allow for the missing ingredient, while keeping to the original feel of the menu. Furthermore, she is one of those individuals who is capable of providing professional service, while making you feel like you are the only bride who ever existed. Although we only knew of her by reputation before our wedding, we now consider her a friend. Our only complaint? That she lives too far away! Our guests still talk about her food and lament that she isn't in the area for their events.

Judith is an amazing Chef. We are foodies, for sure, and if she had a restaurant, would eat there regularly.

She did a great job at our wedding of 190 people, on October 19, 2013 at Miami Beach Botanical Garden. We had many guests tell us it was the best wedding food they had ever had. We went to several different vendors to do sample meals before we tried Judith. She is in different league. She offer true gourmet food on par with the most expensive caterers, at a price that is very competitive.

Her starters are all excellent, you cant go wrong. As our entree, we had a combo plate of Filet Minon with mushroom red wine reduction, roasted chicken breast with mustard taragon sauce, truffle mash potatoes, and grilled vegetables. I was also tempted to go with her lamb chops, or her skirt steak, which are both excellent. She has a wedding cake partner who did a fine Job, and created a beautiful cake for us, with an ornate flower design outside, and ammaretto and pistacio filing, with fresh fruit on the side. It was a big hit. Judith also prepared an assortment macaroon for us to be served with dessert.

If I had any criticism it would be that she may have a tendency to be under staffed slightly. So I would discuss that in some detail as it could be easily amended.

We are very lucky to have found, Judith and I highly recommend her to any bride and groom who care about the food they serve their guests.

Chef Judith and her team were extremely helpful through the process and very accommodating in terms of our needs and requests. The food was delicious at our wedding and we received a lot of compliments on the choices and flavor. From the first time meeting both Chef Judith and Michael, I knew that we were in good hands. Chef was very professional in all aspects of the process and committed to quality service. It was really a pleasure to work with them both and I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in memorable affair. It would be my intention to keep them in mind for future events.

We provided her with our overall concept, and she created a fantastic customized menu that reflected our tastes and backgrounds perfectly. She also worked with us to make the necessary changes to meet our budget. Everything was delicious and well presented, and her staff was very professional. Our family and friends were extremely impressed - we highly recommend Chef of Distinction!
