I’ve had the honor of being a guest at some of Chef John’s dinner parties and have never left disappointed. It’s at these parties that I’ve had the best salads and some of the tastiest grilled fish. Whether it’s his garden salad or couscous salad they are always bursting with seasonal flavors. I don’t believe I’ve ever had the exact same salad twice, but they are always pleasing to the eyes and even more delightful to the taste buds. He has a knack for putting together the freshest ingredients that complement each other in a satisfying way with the end result being a super tasty gourmet salad. His grilled snapper is not to be outdone by his festive seasonal salads. The snapper is marinated with the perfect blend of herbs and spices that bring out the flavor of the fish without being overpowering. After being marinated the fish is grilled perfectly to give that desired grilled taste while still retaining moisture. The result is moist flavorful deliciousness.

"I want to thank you Chef John Procacci for providing delicious, high protein, dairy free and healthy meals during spring training. The meals have been great and I've really enjoyed them. "
Orlando's Best Private Chef
We just wanted to acknowledge your superb culinary talents as our personal chef. Your fine food and attention to detail was exceeded only by your pleasant and accommodating manner.
As our household is extremely health-conscious and preferential to organic meals and ingredients, we were particularly pleased with your ability to provide a variety of specialty meals tailored to our specific dietary needs. In addition to the personal chef services we have enjoyed, your catering for our private dinner parties and social gatherings was incredible. You made each occasion a special event and distinctly unique experience. This allowed us to entertain, rather than serve, our guest, and the result was a more pleasant and successful experience.
Thanks again John for the truly wonderful cuisine!
"Chef Procacci prepared two dinners for our family of seven in our rented Disney condo during our trip to Disney in April 2015. The taste of the food was fantastic, and Chef kept it healthy, at our request. Chef has a great personality, is very professional, and completely cleaned up after himself. I intend to engage Chef Procacci again, and I recommend him highly."

Dear Chef John and Wendy,
I can’t thank you enough for making my 50th Birthday Dinner the most memorable birthday ever. The food looked amazing and tasted absolutely delicious!! Wendy, your attention to detail with rearranging my flowers and candles throughout my home was greatly appreciated. I’m looking forward to seeing you both at my home again.
Thank you very much for all of your hard work and efforts, Top Private Chef.

I recently hired Chef John for 3 days while we rented a vacation house in Orlando. The full turn key experience he provided was outstanding. From picking up the food to cooking and even cleanup was an incredible experience. I was very impressed with the presentation and taste of each dish he served. Our meal included apps, salad, main with several sides and even dessert. Each better than the next dish. I highly recommend his private chef services. The guy can flat out cook and I can't wait until next year! John, New York
Thank you tremendously for your amazing dinners for our group! We loved the meals. You went above and beyond, and we appreciated your hospitality! Thank you again.

His professionalism, integrity and work ethic combined with his creative skills in the kitchen make him an easy choice. " Jenelle F. Oviedo, FL
" Mr. Procacci prepared a delicious meal for my wife and I along with another couple for a special date night. The meal consisted of fresh cooked whole snapper and a fabulous seafood paella, accompanied by a delicious Mediterranean salad. He was courteous and professional, on time and everything was cleaned up spotless when he was finished. I would recommend his service and look forward to another meal prepared by Mr. Procacci soon!" Randy Minner, Oviedo
We hired Chef John for a small dinner party with friends. We had some guests with very specific dietary restrictions (including gluten-free) and he was very helpful in creating a menu to that caters to everyone. He made a four course meal that was both delicious and perfectly presented. The service was also top notch and the clean up was completely taken care of. We will definitely have him do our next dinner party! Shelby, Winter Park

Chef John's meals are so delicious! The different flavors and the presentation of the food is awesome. He prepares meals that are nutritionally healthy as well as flavorful. The service is impeccable.
I was particularly impressed with Johns attention to detail, his punctuality and excellent preparation of the food and finger foods.
John focus's on healthy foods, natural ingredients as do most of my family and friends. But he did have a blend to satisfy all attendee's.
Nothing went wrong, and I would hire John again for my next event!
