"as author of a food-oriented novel and gastronomically inclined memoir, I've imagined a lot of things, but I can't imagine putting a catered event into anyone other than chef emily corliss' exceptional culinary hands. corliss is one of the warmest, most creative and together chefs i've met on the food scene today. i've yet to see her break a sweat or bust an attitude regardless of whether she's running the kitchen of a high-powered restaurant or working in a private home."

"emily corliss is my dream personal chef. she catered a book club event for my book STARTERS, random house, and everything was perfection. not only was the food delicious, but it was beautifully presented as well. the buffet tables were set up with a lot of imagination - there was a typewriter with the first page of my book typed and sitting in the roller!  something else that impressed me -- through it all, with some 30 women weaving in and out of the open kitchen, emily never seemed stressed or pressured. she had a lovely calm demeanor, obviously because she had it all under control."

"we recently had chef emily come and lead an interactive cooking class with our family. the menu that she planned was delicious and plentiful. she was so patient in teaching each person the proper way to make a dish for our dinner. some in our group had never sliced, chopped or prepared anything in their life and she meticulously explained each step in the process. everything was prepared and perfectly timed so that the meal was served warm.  it was a wonderful evening and I would highly recommend emily corliss for anyone looking for a great experience. she was kind, fun and punctual. plus, she is an extremely talented chef. our special dinner was a highlight. it was perfection!"

"we hired emily corliss to surprise our parents for their 45th wedding anniversary with a 5 course meal cooked at their home for nine of us. emily was a delight to coordinate with, professional in every way, and the evening was outstanding...once at our home every detail was effortlessly attended and the food and presentation outstanding. emily is personable, professional, and it is clear she isn't just good at cooking, but she loves to cook. fabulous evening all around."

"emily corliss catered my sister's baby shower.  i hired her because I'd been to a few other baby showers she catered, so I knew it'd be great.  my sister is gluten-free, so emily offered many tasty gluten-free options, along with some vegan options for vegan attendees.  i am neither gluten-free nor vegan and had plenty to enjoy myself.  basically, if you are throwing a party for diet-restricted los angelinos, and you still want stuff that tastes amazing, emily corliss is your gal.  and don't miss her bloody mary's - served with a side of pickled asparagus, bacon and celery.  my sister and all the guests were delighted.
