Here is what they said about the chef.

High quality, wholesome food

Discovering FoodPeople was a dream come true for this busy business owner. To me, the thought of planning for and preparing meals is overwhelming and intimidating. And as a single women with no kids, it’s hard to justify spending the time to cook just for myself. When I met Eren and Chef Emre I felt comfortable knowing that they understood me, my lifestyle and my food preferences. They delivered on all of their promises and continually go above and beyond to exceed my expectations. I would highly recommend FoodPeople to any individuals or families who value high quality, wholesome food prepared with great care and attention.

Food tasted great!

From the time we hired FoodPeople to the completion of our event everything was handled perfectly. They arrived on time and they’re set up was perfect. And the food tasted great! We look forward to working with you again.

Huge value

I cannot say enough amazing things about Eren and the company he has created. From beginning to end the process was easy and enjoyable. His communication and arranging of the perfect chef for our party needs were great! And at such a reasonable price. Huge value. He and the wonderful chef arrived punctually and impressed us with their professionalism and skill. They left the place cleaner than when they arrived too! We could not be more thrilled with this service!! Highly recommend.
