I cannot say enough positive things about Edouard. I am confident in saying I've been blown away with his culinary artistry- the rich flavors; the interplay of textures; the perfect presentation; the thoughtful curation of colors; all of it. He could instantly envision a full palette the moment I mentioned our photoshoot's concept. He goes out of the way to make sure every ingredient is carefully curated for your occasion. The best part if that he serves our favorite flavorful mediterranean dishes with a refreshingly original twist.
Would love to work with him again!

Edouard was wonderful to work with from start to finish. He was responsive to our needs and desires throughout the process. The dinner was wonderful and delicious, and he and his team were perfect. We would definitely recommend him and work with him again!

Edouard was absolutely fantastic. The food, preparation and his professionalism was excellent. His dinner timing with 10 guests was perfect and the birthday was a massive success! Will definitely call him for more upcoming dinners. Thank you again!

I threw a farewell party at my house last week and was recommended Edouard from a friend. He was amazing to work with. He was professional yet relaxed which was a nice calming element. The food and the cocktails were pictures of perfection. Everything tasted exceptional, and our guests loved it. He put together a great menu and stayed within our budget. I would absolutely use Edouard again and again.

Edouard is fantastic! Edouard came to our apartment and taught us the basics of pickling (cucumbers, watermelon rinds... even shrimp!) We learned a lot and also had a wonderful time with him. Highly recommended!

I just used Edouard and his team for my Brooklyn wedding and could not be happier with the results. Throughout the entire process, he was super responsive, responsible and accommodating. Not only was his food delicious! His team helped set-up space and made it completely seamless for us. He worked with us on the menu, the final decorations and was entirely hands-on through the entire process.
The guests kept complimenting us on the food and how everything had come together - so I would highly recommend Eduoard for any event!
He also catered my company's holiday party which was a huge hit with everyone!!

Edouard is a natural master in the culinary arts. Dinner was amazing. So delicious, interesting, and really fun. Everything was made from scratch and extremely fresh. He's also perfectly personality-ed to "host" in this manner. Smart, funny, and engaging, without overwhelming the intimacy of a two-person dinner. Pitch-perfect. And the food, again, was next level. Highly recommended!

After searching for a someone to cater our cocktail style wedding reception, we found Edouard. From the very beginning, he made himself available, he was responsive and very easy to work with. The day of, Edouard and his team arrived on time with smiles on their faces; and the food was nothing short of amazing. My husband is still raving about the sliders and the chicken; my favorite was the falafel and tuna tartare, and of course, the kids loved his ice cream cookie sandwiches. I don't have any pics yet, but when I do, I will update. We will be using Edouard again.

Edouard's food is fantastic! I produce for a fashion production company, and we get him to cater to our week-long photoshoots. He was able to work within our budget and provide all we needed. He was super easy to work with to create a menu to fit all the dietary restrictions (vegetarian, gluten free and nut allergies). He provided excellent suggestions, and I was able to choose among so many great things. His middle eastern food is far by his specialty and so good, and the falafel was a hit with everyone. He makes a killer Mezze display, I dream of his dips, the hummus, and red pepper!!! We also had, make your poke bowls which the crew loved. He also made make your tacos, Italian (pasta chicken, Asian noodles and salmon, plus lots of yummy other things (too many to list) He also organized cold beverages of ice coffee and an array of sodas.
I now get asked in advance by the crew on jobs if Eduard is going to be the cater, many of them said that its some of the best catering they have has on a photoshoot! I book him whenever I have a big shoot and need great food, and I would recommend him 100%. He is very personable, and he makes you feel like his only client!

Edouard is a fantastic chef. We just had a menu of rose-infused ricotta and a delectable quiche. The roses came from his grandfathers rose garden. That's the type of love and personal touch he brings to his dishes. I have eaten four meals cooked by Edouard, and he has excelled every time. The icing on the cake is that Edouard is just a down-to-earth and lovable guy. I highly recommend him!

Amazing private chef! Delicious food.

We had a make your pita wrap catered at the office by Edouard, and it was fantastic. Everything was homemade, and you could taste the fresh ingredients for what they are. The homemade pickled beets, turmeric cauliflower, and shawarma chicken were all-around favorites.
- Lisa M.
Having Edouard teach me and my new husband how to cook a Lebanese meal was one of the most unique and awesome gifts we have ever received. Scheduling the private class was simple - Edouard was very accommodating. He arrived on time and made himself right at home. Before I knew it, my kitchen was already transformed into a fully prepped learning experience. There was never a dull moment and the food was out of this world. I would strongly recommend everyone treating themselves to a private cooking class with Edouard. We're already looking forward to having him back!
- Mark R.
I had the pleasure of working with Edouard this past September for a day of catering at a photo shoot and the service was remarkable. From conception to last minute changes, Edouard met my every need and request with patience and professionalism. Aside from being super easy to work with, the food was FANTASTIC! Everyone at our photo shoot was extremely impressed with the selection and freshness of the food. Edouard even made a quick change for me to adjust something I selected to nut-free due to an allergy we had on set. Looking forward to working with him again & highly recommend his services.

Edy is a true pleasure to work with! He cooked SUCH a delicious four-course dinner for my sister's bachelorette party. We were staying at an Airbnb in the Far Rockaways, and Edy was able to schlep out there and cook in a less-than-ideal rental kitchen with limited counter space, plates, etc.
For 12 of us, we started with a few hors d'oeuvres (preserved lemon kafta, halloumi and pesto crostini, and terrific shrimp rolls) then had awesome pretzel-crusted crab cakes followed by super juicy za'atar-grilled chicken; grilled zucchini and asparagus; a watermelon, corn, and shrimp salad; and an orzo and olive salad. Everything was so perfectly seasoned and cooked so expertly. Edy is a gem; I would recommend him to anyone and look forward to working with him again!

Praise!!!! Edouard cooked the most delicious meal for myself and my partner. We were so impressed by how sweet, fun, and delicious the entire experience was. Such great conversations too! Edouard cooked a delicious Branzino that was melt in our mouths good. Our fish was accompanied by an amazing orzo salad- followed by a gluten free tahini chocolate tart that we noshed on for the rest of the night. He provided full service, including cleanup which we did not expect! He was quick, easygoing, and the service was amazing. He even served us on our rooftop. Will definitely be calling Edouard again for our next event.

I wanted to do something for my wife's birthday that we haven't done before. We recently moved to Brooklyn and have a young son so we decided to do a private dinner at Home.
Edouard was great. Friendly and the food he cooked was wonderful. We had a four course meal. Started with dips, then a butternut squash soup, lamb chops and finally a Dutch pancake with vanilla ice cream. Everything was delicious and we would happily have him cater a meal for a larger group of friends.
- Neil D.
Edouard is not only an incredible chef, but also an absolute pleasure to work with. My company hired him to come in once a week and cook for our staff, and he's gone above and beyond every single week! He creates a unique menu for us each time, and the food speaks for itself: it's creative, presented beautifully, and always delectable.
I would give Edouard five stars based solely on that aforementioned deliciousness, but I also need to mention how easy he makes my job on the business side of things. He always sends prompt invoices, is available when I have questions, and even provides pdfs of his menus for display. He's a joy to have in the office, I actually look forward to Monday mornings now! And that's saying a lot.
I'd recommend hiring Edouard any day of the week. Well, except Monday mornings; my team and I call dibs.

So usually I go out and make a huge deal of my birthday since of course, it's the best day of the year! This year a friend recommended a dinner party catered by Chef Edy. I have to say this beat any other birthday I've had! I had very specific requests for my menu, and none of them fell short!
Did I mention the hummus yet? Okay, Chef's homemade hummus was the best I've ever had. I'm still thinking about it a day later. We had a beautiful cheese spread with cured meats and warm toasted baguette! (To die for!)
I asked for my theme to be brunch for dinner. Steak eggs benedict, Dutch baby pancake, and the hash browns, oh those hash browns! I'll tell you who is planning my birthday this year, but if you've read this far I bet you already know!
Thank you, Edy, for making my birthday a night to remember!

The moment we tasted Edouard's food, we were hooked onto it. He has been the favorite caterer for our company ever since. I would not hesitate to recommend him for all kinds of events. Try his mezze display, it's bomb.

Edouard has catered a few of our events; the food, presentation, and service were always terrific.
