Exceeding Expectations Everyday

Catering by the Deft Chef is one of the few, if not the only Chef-Owned, professionally-trained, full-service catering companies in the CSRA. Chef and Owner Jimmy Hicks is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of Charleston with studies in Culinary Arts, Catering Management , and Hospitality Management. After culinary school, he worked with the finest caterers in Charleston to hone not only his Culinary Skills but his Catering Management Skills as well.

What this means to you is your assurance and guarantee that you will receive fabulous food and professional service! So many caterers start their business with no professional training. It does not matter how long someone has been doing something, without professional training many caterers simply “do not know what they do not know.” 

For your special event, hire a true professional. You and your guests deserve the best!

Catering by The Deft Chef when only the best will do!

“ Jimmy was wonderful! He is very knowledgeable & helpful. Talking with him was like talking to an old friend, you feel like you’ve known him forever. The planning process was smooth & he was very available toanswer questions, especially via email. The food was delicious & the staff was incredible. My guests raved about the food & the service. They felt like they were getting the VIP treatment because his staff brought around appetizers & cleared plates. I had 200 guests & he had plenty of food & beverages for everyone. Their setup was beautiful. He supplies all of the glassware, plates, silverware, linens, even a cake cutter! We felt that everything we got was well worth the price!”

“Jimmy and his staff were wonderful. From our first meeting to the actual event, we enjoyed working with them. Jimmy is an excellent chef, the food was delicious and well timed. His business assistant was available and considerate. We would absolutely call on them again should we need catering for another event.”
