Laura, I cannot thank you enough for helping make my mother's birthday so incredibly amazing. From beginning to end, it was easy and wonderful- we were more than pleased. Everyone was so impressed with your service, food and the overall experience. I passed out your card, and anticipate you will shape more tasty meals for our friends' events. I know our family has a beautiful lasting memory and I can't wait to plan another fun event with you soon.
Just wanted to thank you for a great night last Friday. Peter really enjoyed it and of course I did too. We loved the massages and of course the meal. (We had Halibut at Capitol Grille this week and it was not as good as the Sea Bass you prepared)
Jill and Peter Gordon, Sharon, MA
I wanted to thank you again for the fabulous party Sunday night...I got raves about the food and already passed along your contact info to friends of a friend who was at the party. The fact that you cooked there made the food so fresh and not greasy or preserved in any way. You were so efficient and calm while handling numerous chores - Kudos to you...I knew I was right to hire you for the party!
Sharon Fradkin, The Wizard of Adz, Inc.
Just wanted to thank you again for your outstanding contribution to Lauren's Birthday party! We were impressed with everything you did and it truly showed that your efforts came from the heart. You especially impressed us with your use of many wonderful fresh ingredients including fruit, herbs and spices, and how you prepared everything to perfection. Your hard work was evident in your presentations and there were "Wows" from everyone including the fussiest eaters. Even better, the "proof was in the pudding" when we tasted the food! We wanted something special for Lauren and she was overwhelmed with joy.
Your original email with your suggestions gave us the impression that you were creative, professional and accommodating and you proved that at the party. We also felt that your pricing was very reasonable. The quality of the food went beyond our expectations!
Since returning to Venice, FL, I have told our friends about you. They were impressed and said they would relay the information to their families up North.
It certainly was a pleasure meeting you and we wish you success with your business. Hope we meet again!

I won (Laura's) donation to the Auction. She was wonderful, and a lovely person, not to mention an excellent cook! It was a pleasure meeting her and I hope to do more business with her in the future and will definitely recommend her to my friends.
J. B., Canton, MA
I want to congratulate you on your abilities and your professionalism. It was a pleasure to have you in our home. We sent out e-mails to our friends and relatives that would use your services....You will be hearing from us.
Andy, Billerica (Dinner for 8)
WHAT A WONDERFUL JOB YOU DID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The dinner party was a huge success and there were raves all around.… [our friends] had two full helpings and there was still enough leftover for my lunch - yum!
Last night we had the meatballs with spinach and cheese - that was a wow and it turns out that Nat, Bob and I can have a good dinner on what is marked for a serving for two;-) You are a wonderful cook and the food is fabulous! Thank you.
Liz Hunter, Walpole, MA
You made Sean and my anniversary a beautiful and romantic experience. I can't say enough about how impressed we were with not only your professionalism, but your friendliness and graciousness as well. Sean told me that hiring you was the best Anniversary gift I have ever given him. He was just so happy and impressed. Normally he does not like surprises, but this surprise was perfect…
The food you prepared was superb. Perfectly cooked steak, the right cut. The mashed potatoes were out of this world incredible. And we are Irish, so I pride myself in my mashed potatoes! Yours were much better though. We loved all of the food. The right portions, wonderful flavor, and the desert was out of this world! Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart. You made our 19th anniversary one to remember for many years.
Renee Carlson, Brockton, MA
I've loved every dish I have tried, and the only one still awaiting a taste test is the chicken (apricot and pecan stuffed breast with bourbon molasses sauce) dish. The shrimp (with spiced masala and coconut milk) is especially savory, and I could live quite happily on your couscous with dried fruit …..I'm trying to pace myself - spreading the meals out a bit by alternating with various "plain food" items that I forage from my cupboards - but it's hard: I want to eat Laura's delicious cooking at every dinner! -Marcia, Winthrop, MA
From her friend:
I can well imagine Marcia looks forward to your meals as they sound absolutely delicious! I am so glad to have found you. Not only are you a wonderful chef but you are also a very caring person.
P. Greaves, friend and food fairy for Marcia in Winthrop
Being on the go all the time I decided to give Home Plate Advantage a try, and I'm glad I did. The food was excellent and easy to prepare. Laura does a great job and the service I highly recommend.
Mark, Norwood, MA
Everything was so good. We really loved the lasagna! Thanks again for cooking for us.
Joyce, Stoughton, MA
Home Plate Advantage is a perfect solution for anyone with a hectic schedule, for someone looking for a unique gift idea, or perhaps someone who can't cook - - like me!!. All meals were prepared with my likes, dislikes and lifestyle in mind. I appreciated the convenience of coming home, following a few directions and quickly having a healthy, home cooked meal at my fingertips. In addition to a menu plan and substitution suggestions, Laura left simple directions and a kitchen that was cleaner than she started with!
J. Joyce, Canton, MA
I wanted to take this opportunity to say - many thanks for your wonderful cooking and making our event enjoyable for all of us. Several of my clients called and expressed how delicious your selections are!! You definitely WOW them! Laura, I am so glad we had you to help us with this event. Thank you ...thank you !!
J. Chou, Ideal Skin, Stoughton, MA
We are enjoying everything very much! The kugel was so good it got 10 thumbs up. We shared it with family and they loved it…my daughter said it is a must for a birthday party we are having in April. You have inspired us to try new things… and we are having good experiences. Thank you!
Shirley B., Sharon, MA
Laura - Thank you so much for Sunday, they had a wonderful time and they thought you were great. The food was wonderful too, they enjoyed it so much.

I am a very busy professional. The personal chef service is perfect for me. I get to have the meals I enjoy without having to shop and cook. I The meals are prepared the way I like them and are delicious! I highly recommend this service.
David, Norwood, MA
I will certainly put in a good word to Tim (of Wood Palace Kitchens), so he will consider you for future International Night events, and I'll look forward to tasting more of your creative efforts!
