"I found Chef Jay online and thought that a personal chef would be a great gift for a Mothers Day present for my wife. I was a novice and didn't know what questions to ask, what items I wanted served, wine to serve with them or date of this gift. Chef Jay made it so easy for me to look like a superstar. He provided a menu to my wife and I a few weeks in advance and verified we did not have any dietary restrictions. When he showed up he brought everything for the dinner, plates and silverware along with the food he was going to cook. He allowed my wife to watch while he cooked and ask questions about what he was doing and why. He was very open and was happy to discuss anything from how he was preparing the meal to what foods are good for our kids to help make. The meal he served was fantastic fresh with seasonal ingredients, and full of flavor and color. I would recommend Chef Jay to my friends in the future."

"WOW! What a great night! Kevin and I would like to thank you for the fabulous tapas and awesome presentation! Everything tasted wonderful. We, along with our guests, will be talking about this for a long time to come. You embody the perfect combination of professional and personal touch.

We thank you for helping to make this special occasion even more spectacular. You made ALL the difference. We will highly recommend you and look forward to the opportunity to work with you on future events."

"As new parents, we loved receiving a gift certificate for a Canape dinner. Chef Jay came in and prepared a wonderful dinner and cleaned it all up. We had a lovely evening and didn't have to lift a finger! He came over after our girls were in bed for the night, so we got to enjoy a delicious meal without babysitting fees! What a treat. He's so nice and fun to talk to as well. I would definitely recommend this as a gift for any new parents.

We couldn't stop talking about the meal for days after. As good as any nice restaurant (and we are near several on Capital Hill). Thanks Chef Jay for the lovely evening! "

"Chef Jay demonstrates all the qualities of a "Top Chef." His personable manner, knowledge of food and wine, and passion for his work is obvious. Equally important, Chef Jay's food is outstanding. Fresh ingredients and yummy flavor profiles evoke rave reviews from guests. Chef Jay provides peace-of-mind because you can relax about the quality of food and service guests will receive. Bravo Chef Jay!"

"Just wanted to thank you again for such at wonderful experience a few weeks back. Since being home I have made the cider braised cod and it was almost as good as yours! Thank you so much for sharing. If you ever find yourself down our way, please consider this an open invitation to stop by for some smoked pork product!"

Leah & Alex, Bay Area

"Jay was terrific! He worked on the menu with us, arrived promptly with the food and equipment, and put on a real show for us. Jay has a thorough knowledge of food & wine and enjoys interacting with his clients. We look forward to our next adventure with him as well as personalized cooking classes. It was a terrific way to begin the New Year!"

"Mara and I used a gift certificate to have Chef Jay perform a cooking demonstration in our home. His food was amazing (particularly the pan seared halibut with a crawfish bourride), but equally wonderful was Jay's friendly and fun nature. As we watched him prepare our dinner, he shared cooking tips and advice along with great stories from his culinary career. As a result, we had an amazing date night without even leaving the house. We highly recommend both Jay and his food to anyone looking for a great night in."

"I loved having Jay for my dinner party. We had many dietary restrictions plus a last minute pulled tooth and Jay accommodated at every level. The food was wonderful, Jay explained each course which made the setting both comfortable and special. And I didn't have to do dishes. I can't wait to have him back."

Chef Jay was great, he brought everything the only thing we needed was a table. He also emailed me with wine parings for every course. I also loved that when dinner was over there were no dishes to do! This was such a nice treat."

The whole party was so pleased with all of the information he gave us about wine, food and techniques. He is an amazing chef, super professional, well dressed, well spoken and even more wonderful PUNCTUAL!

"When I explained the type of interactive experience we were looking for, for our evening with our guests, Chef Jay not only listened but he delivered! He was exceptionally professional and was able to engage our group of ten with information about the menu, preparation & plating. His knowledge about wine & demonstration regarding tasting were invaluable when came to pulling off our blind wine tasting. The food was fresh and our guests are still raving about it. Thank you for helping us create a memorable evening for our friends!"

"What a great night!! Chef Jay prepared an incredible dinner for my parent's 40th anniversary! Every course was incredible. His use in flavors and textures really created an amazing dinner experience.

All 12 that were in attendance love to go out to dinner. Having an even more intimate dinner in the privacy of our home was outstanding. I highly recommend this to everyone, not just for special occasions but for any occasion. I will be booking Chef Jay again in the near future for a dinner party with my friends so they too can enjoy this wonderful experience."

"We have a toddler and eating at restaurants is an unenjoyable circus act of eating as fast as you can and chasing the toddler around. Having Chef Jay cook for us allowed us to enjoy a great meal in the comfort of our house. I recommend Chef Jay's service to anyone who has kids and finds it difficult to eat out."

P. Chu, West Seattle

"This is the second time we've had Chef Jay cook for us. I can't say enough about the food. It was so delicious. The flavors and meal combinations all work so well together. Chocolate Sumapaz is our new favorite dessert. Talk about melt-in-your-mouth. We have so much fun with Chef Jay and his knowledge of food is awesome. You should do this at least once even if you don't have a special occassion."

"We wanted to celebrate our daughter's "new decade" birthday in a special way... and we called Chef Jay to help us. Our communications were great before the occasion and entertaining and informative during the evening.

"My husband and I received a gift certificate for a five course dinner from Chef Jay a few weeks after our daughter was born. We scheduled the dinner for a few months later, when things were settled and we were due for a nice dinner together. The food was amazing and the service was beyond excellent. It was wonderful to sit down with my husband and have a gourmet dinner in our very own kitchen. I would recommend Canape to anyone."

S. Bartz, Fircrest

"Chef Jay arrived on time, brought everything he needed and went about the business of feeding 8 guests very professionally. The meal came at a perfect pace and when it was over the kitchen and dining area were clean and ready for the next use. We will definitely look to Jay for future occasions!

"Tonight Jay prepared a special braised pork tenderloin dinner for my girlfriend and me. The presentation, quality and experience of all the courses was beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend Jay as a personal chef or for catering a special dinner for family and friends, where the 'can't miss' aspect is paramount. The Grand Marnier creme brulee by itself is worth having Jay come to your home and grace your palate!"

D. Henrickson, West Seattle

"Thank you for another great evening Jay! Our guests raved about your food and presentation. My husband and I loved being able to entertain at home without the stress of shopping, cooking, serving and clean-up! We're looking for an excuse to have the next dinner party!"

"My husband and I had a fantastic time at the class last night. Jay had just the right mix of education and entertainment and we felt immediately at ease. I consider myself a good cook but I learned several new things last night that I can put to use right away! The food, of course, was divine."

"When I saw the menu for the Fall Flavors Cooking Class I knew it was for me - Chef
Jay - it was great! I thought the pace was just right & it was very low-key & friendly-nothing was "over my head", so to speak. I actually just finished making almost the entire dinner tonight. I tweaked the carrot soup a bit by adding some apple - which you mentioned & cut back on the ginger (my husband is not a fan) & it was amazing! I'm going to make it for a casual dinner party next week. The pork tenderloin and blackberry-orange reduction was perfect. It was so great to have seen you prepare it-I felt very comfortable with each step -my husband was so impressed! I'll fix the salad & the Spiced Buttered Apples another day! This is a menu I will make often! Thank you for an informative, fun evening. I look forward to taking another class from you."

C. Jensen, Seattle

"Chef Jay prepared a five course meal for 10 guests in our home for my husband's birthday. Jay was professional and easy to work with from start to finish. It was such an indulgence and special treat to have him take care of the planning, shopping, cooking, serving, and cleaning up while we were able to relax and visit with our guests. Jay thoughtfully put together a menu based on a discussion we had about my husband's favorite food. The food was all great, but the plank grilled scallops were particularly noteworthy. As was the chocolate sumapaz with sauce anglaise and fresh raspberries for dessert! Jay used all fresh and seasonal ingredients too which we really appreciated. We wish he could cook for us every night!"

D. Hoover, Seattle

"I ran across Canape through Red Tricycle and saw the Super Savor special. I booked Chef Jay to come for our anniversary. Chef Jay was so professional. It was fun watching him prepare the food. That was more action than my kitchen had seen in a while. The food was absolutely phenomenal. The flavors and flow were perfect. We really enjoyed Chef Jay's meal description and commentary on each course. We had such a great time and enjoyed Chef Jay's food immensely."

Jay was totally prepared and my early conversations with him ensured we had a great event. The food was delicious and Jay's wine suggestions completed the experience."

"Incredible evening! Chef Jay prepared a team event filled with demonstrations, information and even built a custom team activity requiring teams to work together to develop a dessert with taste testing and team effort judging. The team is still talking about how wonderful the evening was and were eager to try the recipies out on their own. Thank you for such a great evening!"

"For Valentine's Day, a group of our friends thought it would be fun to have Jay come over and cook us dinner. I personally have not eaten a meal prepared by Jay but one of our friends had attended a wedding which Jay catered and raved about the food. Before the actual day, Jay worked with myself and my fiancee to come up with a dinner menu- scallops with bacon chutney, dungeness crab ravioli, rack of lamb and profiteroles is what we came up with. Besides the meal being absolutely amazing (everyone had completely clean plates), Jay was entertaining, welcoming and fun to interact with. We are now reserving Jay for every Valentine's Day! Thanks for making that day really special for all 10 of us and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!"

"I can't speak more highly of Jay's excellent culinary skills and his professional business sense. I live on the East Coast and my family is on the West Coast. I found Jay's website and decided to take the plunge to deal with him solely via email. I was immediately impressed by Jay's professionalism and concern for the customer's needs. It didn't take me long to feel completely at ease and know that I had made a good decision to use Jay's services. By all accounts, the dinner was spectacular, Jay was very personable and professional, and the evening was a wonderful event for all concerned. Thanks, Jay, for helping me give my family a most memorable Christmas gift. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you and to use your services again in the future."

"I hired Jay to cook a surprise dinner for my wife's birthday. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but we were both blown away by the experience. I had given a few suggestions on food we would enjoy, and he put his own twist on the menu, putting great thought into tying dishes together with a specific ingredient. Not only was the food fabulous, but Jay from start to finish was easy to work with and very professional. He was also very personal, and introduced us to the experience of sitting at the Chef's table, explaining each dish as it was presented. We would recommend him to anyone!"

"Chef Jay was great. He takes the art of cooking seriously and it shows! We went to a "team cooking" restaurant last year and having Jay at our house instead was so much better! The meal was great and learning as we worked our way through each course was perfect and fun."

"Chef Jay provided us with a delicious meal that was entertaining and educational. It was an awesome experience to have a group of friends over to share in this wonderful event. I would definately use Jay's expertise again. From start to finish, he was a "true" professional. Great friends, amazing food...all in the comfort of your home. What more can someone ask for?"

"We were very excited when we received a gift certificate for Canape Specialty Chef Services. We worked with Jay through email to get the perfect date set up, as well as the perfect menu. He told us that each meal is customized for every occasion, so we gave him some ideas as to what we liked and he came up with a wonderful 5-course dinner. All the preparation for the meal was done at the house so we were able to watch Jay in action. Each course was ready as we finished the previous one. Everything was beautifully presented, and most importantly, tasted amazing. He also talked to us about what we were eating at each course and we were able to see the true passion he has for cooking. We really appreciated that Jay tried to prepare the meal as healthy as possible — well, until we had the maple creme brulee, which was totally worth it! It was really an enjoyable evening - a date out, at home."

M. & T. Nugent, Snoqualmie

"We received Jay’s cooking services as a Christmas gift – and boy was it the best gift ever! To be able to enjoy yourself in one's own home is quite a treat. Not to worry about preparing the menu or even clean up was wonderful. But best of all, was the meal itself. Knowing that the ingredients are fresh, organic accompanied with home grown herbs – wow! We enjoyed the meal so much, that we had him come back and cook for the whole family a month later. We thoroughly enjoyed his preparation, the combination of tastes were remarkable & the desserts are just heavenly. Thanks Jay and I hope to use you again in the future."

G. Villnueva, Seattle

"I was really pleasantly surprised with your services on June 29th. I did not know what to expect but you came on time, very well organized and got everyone fed. The presentation was great, the food was wonderful, and the ambiance you created was excellent. Everyone had a wonderful time. Thank you for this wonderful surprise. I will definitely call you again!"

M. Aragones, Issaquah

"My husband and I enjoyed a special Valentine's dinner courtesy of gourmet chef Jay DeLong. It was such a treat to be catered to in our own home. Jay was professional, prompt, and, best of all, a gourmet cook who prepared our meal with fresh and organic

A. Chabot, Seattle

"Great meals are one of life’s true delights. However, dining in even the best of restaurants is so often disappointing: long wait; poor table location; noisy and/or cold and drafty; so-so service and fear of the consequences of having a glass of wine or two. Good fortune has allowed my husband and me to live with one of the best views in all Seattle from our home, therefore take-out meals are a frequent choice.

Jay offers the best of both worlds. His timing was perfect, not just the arrival, but the pacing of the dinner. We felt neither anxious nor rushed. His meal was custom, extraordinarily delicious, and impeccably prepared and served. The final touch – no evidence of his having been in our home, except the smile on our faces. Thank you, Jay, (and to my dear sister and brother-in-law who gave us the gift certificate) for the wonderful evening!"

J. Hanford, Seattle

"What a fabulous experience! My husband and I hired Chef Jay for our first year anniversary. With no complaint, Chef Jay trekked north to Anacortes for our special evening. It was a joy to watch him cook in our home. The food was exquisite, and the company amazing. Initially we wanted a romantic atmosphere, but Jay’s talents and good conversation convinced us to watch as he beautifully plated each course. A truly wonderful experience; I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Thank you Jay for making our first year anniversary a memorable one! We were so pleased to have you in our home; you are one in a million!"

B & H Patterson, Anacortes

Chef Jay was the highlight of our company holiday party! His professionalism, pro-active attitude and ability to maintain a high level of excellence (even in less than favorable conditions) makes him THE choice for any event. His menu choices were perfectly suited to our needs and the food turned out perfectly. I would most highly recommend Chef Jay for any event, no matter what the size or occasion. Many thanks!"

IKARIA, Seattle

" We hired Chef Jay to prepare a birthday brunch. He was professional, easy to work with and very accommodating. My wife loves artistic desserts, so Jay created 5 mini desserts which were both beautiful and scrumptious. She loved them. Jay also created a delicious brunch menu which we all enjoyed. We had a wonderful time, as did our friends and family. Jay took care of everything allowing us all to enjoy ourselves. It was a real pleasure and treat to have him in our home. We will definitely have him back again for another event."

A. Baruch, Bellevue

"To celebrate our recent wedding anniversary, we arranged for Chef Jay to instruct us in preparing a romantic meal with a fabulous dessert that we do not see on too many menus anymore, Bananas Foster. Jay was extremely professional, arrived with everything in hand and proceeded to make one of the best meals we’ve had in some time, all while we watched and took notes. It was a magnificent meal, prepared by a magnificent Chef, eaten in the comfort of our magnificent home! Thanks Jay for allowing us to enjoy time together and for teaching my husband how to make a magnificent meal! He now makes Bananas Foster semi-frequently and I get to sit with my feet up while my husband learns his way around the kitchen. A second anniversary present indeed!!"

V & P Frink, Tacoma

"I would like to thank you for the wonderful and delicious catering presentation made for my wife's suprise birthday party. As this was the first time to use a catering service, I wasn't sure what to expect. You made everything easy and worry free; from suggesting what food items to serve, the quantities, providing the serving ware and the items needed for the party...all the way down to the napkins. All I had to do was show up with my wife.

Everyone complimented on what a great birthday party it turned out to be, but I couldn't have done it without your service and assistance. Thank you very much."

R. Nakamoto, Seattle

"I highly recommend Executive Chef Jay Delong at Canapé Specialty Chef Services to anyone who is looking for a great caterer. He will help you personalize and select a menu tailored for your special event.

Jay displays confidence and enthusiasm with attention to detail in preparing eye pleasing dishes. Our guests complimented our great tasting bar-b-que picnic, and even took home leftovers to share with family and friends. Thank you Chef Jay! We would gladly invite Canapé to cater another event."

L. Potter, Seattle

" I had Chef Jay come to my home and do a class/dinner for my mother's birthday. It was a wonderful evening. Several of the guests are/have done food service at some point and they're still, several weeks later, talking about how much they enjoyed the event.

Chef Jay was very easy to work with. I had some ideas and he created a menu to make it special for everyone. He arrived on time, bringing everything he needed. He was very professional and easygoing. I'd envisioned more of a class, but people were more interested in socializing. He took that change in stride and continued, putting the meal on the table when planned. I'm looking forward to finding an excuse for another event."

K. McGinnis, Federal Way

"My wife and I had Jay do a combination of an interactive cooking class and small dinner party in our home. Jay did a wonderful job of explaining everything while he prepared the dinner and the food was truly outstanding. He created an atmosphere where people were comfortable asking questions and by the end of the evening, everyone was confident that they could re-create the dishes in their own kitchen. It was a wonderful experience and we will certainly have him do it again in the future."

M. Antinore, Queen Anne

"Donna and I want to thank you again for the wonderful evening you created for us. We loved the menu items that you selected for our desire for "a taste of France", and are still raving about the Cashew Carrot Ginger Soup with lemon creme fraiche and fresh chives! We also found it such a pleasure to watch you prepare and enjoyed the conversation and the friendly atmosphere you created in our home."

R & D Zahnow

"We all thank you so much for a wonderful evening. The whole process from planning to execution was pretty much flawless. That is something I appreciate more than you know. Presentation, professionalism and taste was fantastic! I will definitely keep recommending you to others. Again thank you for making our surprise dinner party perfect!"

I would be honored to acknowledge you through your website, if you like. John and I were both so impressed, and we also loved the menus you left...Thank You, Jay!"

"My husband, daughter and I enjoyed a meal prepared in our home by Chef Jay for my husband's 42nd birthday. The experience from beginning to end was incredibly enjoyable, from meal planning to execution. Jay was very professional and worked with me to find a menu that worked for the whole family, even my 8 year old daughter. The menu included an incredible carrot ginger soup, pan-seared halibut served with a saffron cream and accompanied by whipped mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables. Jay prepared the meal for us in a cooking lesson style which was very unique and fun for the family. My husband could not say enough good things about the experience. He prefers to celebrate his birthday among family and without much fuss, so this was a perfect way to make his day special without a big party and as a change of pace from going out to a restaurant. He really enjoyed conversing with Jay and learning new cooking techniques as well as having leftovers the next day! My daughter especially loved the flaming bananas foster for dessert. Jay was incredibly knowledgeable and very personable. The experience was a real treat and I highly recommend Jay."

B. Toombs, Sammamish

"For Valentines Day this year, my husband and I had Jay over to cook a delightful romantic seafood dinner. The idea stemmed from another couple I know who had Jay cook for their anniversary a few years ago. As much to their satisfaction they were overwhelmed with the flavors and unique style Jay brought to their home that evening. I was excited to learn that his schedule was open for that specific day, and I anticipated his arrival.

With a full five course meal, of excellence, from the Crab Bisque to the mouth watering Atlantic Lobster he prepared, topped off with a delicious dessert. Jay was a delight to have in our home on such a special occasion. Referred to us for his talents and passion for cooking, we were not at all disappointed. In fact it was more to remember then we had expected.

I must say it was our first time having a Chef come to our home, and certainly not the last occasion or event we hope to be blessed with Jay cooking up some delightful food. The one quote I can remember my husband saying to me was " I wish we could have him cook for us everyday". Thank you for making our day very special Jay. The evening was wonderful. We hope you see you again soon!!"

J & T Swann, Seattle

"Chef Jay recently catered a summer picnic for our small department. He was on-time and thought through every detail - the picnic basket, utensils, and even a garbage bag. The food was great! It made a special occasion for a very special friend! I will definitely use Jay again in the future."

J. Fischer, Kent

"Everything was perfect! Jay was prompt, courteous, professional, and the food was spectacular! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect evening for our special dinner party. Our guests were treated to an extraordinary evening of fine food and interaction with a remarkable chef -- they've been raving ever since! Best of all -- I got to relax and enjoy my company with no stress and no clean-up! Thanks, Jay!"

S. Watkins, Burien

"Thanks for such a wonderful experience on Mothers Day! The food was fantastic! The service was so professional and for the same cost as a "5-star" brunch in Seattle the whole family got to relax and enjoy our home while the kids could run and play! I received compliments about the food and you're pleasent personality for days after! So I had to write you and say thank you so much!!"

J. Shadoff, Mill Creek

"We hired Jay to cater my husband's 40th birthday party. He took the time to meet with me before the party to understand my desires and suggested a great menu. He was organized and professional. He arrived on time and the food was marvelous. After the party, several of the guests commented on the quality, taste, and presentation of the food. He far exceeded my expectations. I will definitely hire Jay again!"

J. Fischer., Kent

"My wife and I recently celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. My objective for the evening was to create an elegant and romantic setting for the two of us -- a special setting over and above the standard restaurant

I contracted with Chef Jay to provide a special dessert presentation for the two of us and the results were fantastic. Jay is easy to work with and was great at helping me come up with creative menu ideas to accommodate both our tastes and the available facilities.
Chef Jay's handmade desserts and personalized table service added the perfect touch of elegance and exclusivity to our evening. I would recommend Jay for any engagement where style and quality are important."

D. Austin, Seattle

I hired Chef Jay to cook a very special meal for a 40th birthday party. I told him what kind of cuisine I was looking for and he provided me with a fantastic menu that satisfied many taste buds. He arrived at my home and spent about 6 hours cooking the meal and when he left, the kitchen was much cleaner than when he arrived!

He also suggested some wine to pair with the meal. I had a request for an unusual dessert that he also made happen. My guests were greeted by the smells of little Italy and they could not wait to eat.

The presentation was beautifully displayed as family style and did not feel like a catered event. He was very professional, but also very personal as we talked several times prior to the event to ensure that everything was to my liking. He also offered to help me with any other details for the event, which went above and beyond what I expected from him. Overall my experience with Chef Jay was excellent and I would definitely hire him again for an event."

M. Cadieux, Seattle

"The food Canapé provided for our wedding was above and beyond anything we could have expected. Thank You!"

S. Delaney, Seattle

"Jay worked with us to plan a great menu within our budget and then executed it flawlessly. I highly recommend him."

K. Miller, Seattle

"We are still receiving compliments from our guests about the wonderful food!"

N. Davenport, Stonington Gallery

"What a treat! The food was fresh, special, and visually stunning. I'd love to have Jay cater another event."
