Making you feel at home. I take foods that you remember and love and add a little twist. Everything is brought to you from the hand and heart.
Chef set the tone early for this amazing meal. The first course was a melt-in-your-mouth selection of Maine scallops and Jerusalem artichokes. Each dish that followed got better and better from the salad of local Union Square goodies to the roasted angus sirloin and lobster faro salad, finishing with a Winter truffle of zucchini olive oil cake. Chef's warm, fun-loving, professional attitude was the perfect complement to our group.
Chef Warren is a culinary gem- he never fails to delight our group with his delicious menus. Consistently impressive, amazing quality, inventive and palate pleasing all around!
Warren was amazing! Such a thoughtful guy-- easy to talk to, great entertainer, extremely professional. And the meal itself was absolutely delicious: top notch restaurant level quality. My guests were completely impressed. The best part? We got to enjoy our meal and I didn't have to lift a finger... not one iota of clean up required later on!
We loved Warren and the entire meal was well thought, presented and delicious. He was professional, self sufficient and very organized. He was able to time everything perfectly and my friends and I were delighted by the process. I highly recommend him and will use him again!!
Warren was fantastic and his food was delicious. He was prepared and prepped and totally relaxed during the cocktail party. He was a pleasure to have in the kitchen. If you want your party done right, hire Warren!!
Chef Warren was fantastic. He was responsive and easy to work with in the planning leading up to the dinner. He happily and easily accommodated my food allergy restrictions. The menu was fabulous. The beets were so tender and flavorful. The short ribs rocked. The gnocchi were delish on top of curried pumpkin purée. And the olive oil cakes for dessert were super soft and flavorful. I will definitely use him again!
Warren made us a delicious meal! He was fun to talk to and easy going. Definitely would recommend him to a friend!
Question: How do you create a perfect evening for adults, children, vegans, and carnivores alike? Answer: Warren Schierenbeck. Absolutely sensational - from the food (oh my god my favorites were the tuna burger, vegetable spring roll, and the sirloin! ), to the way Warren and John seamlessly and confidently worked the kitchen, guests, and room, to the way they looked after ME asking if I needed anything, not to mention that my kitchen was so clean when they left it was if it never happened!! This team is an absolute tour de force. Warren is an extreme talent - and I was just so fortunate to meet both him and John. I will without a doubt ask him to do every single future event I have. The whole experience was a 12 out of 10.
Great menu, great food, great overall experience. So glad I followed a friend's advice to use kitchensurfing.com Warren is a pro, and his help made for an effortless and fun evening; no menu planning, prep, tending or cleaning. He handled it all, with the help of his assistant. Our kitchen was spotless when they left.
Warren and team were incredible!! Would absolutely book again. We had never booked a chef before, but had a cocktail party for 30+ and wanted to make things a bit easier as the host. We thought Warren's American Cocktail menu sounded perfect, but actually tasting it was even better. The lambchop lollipops were the biggest hit of the night. Truly delicious all around. And beyond, Warren and team went well out their way to host, receive jackets, lend a hand, plate, serve, pour, you name it. Thanks so much!
Warren and is staff were beyond spectacular. The food was out of this world (every guest said so). He was extremely professional, fun, and a blast to work with. We'll hire him again and again!
Warren was fantastic! His serving staff was very professional. Food was fantastic. Guests were very happy. I'd highly recommend
Delicious, flavorful meal! Warren was on time, easy to reach, and a pleasure to have in the kitchen. All around great experience, and perfect for a holiday party.
Excellent. Service was professional and lovely as well.
Absolutely the most fun experience working with Chef Warren and his team. He prepared a mouthwatering fun meal. It was our daughter's 16th birthday dinner with close family and friends. Children ranging from 3-16, and he was amazing at every point. He sat the children all around the kitchen island and hand made Gnocchi with each one of them. He was very kind, gentle, and very patient with them. As the 3 year old made flour angels on the kitchen floor, we all had a great laugh, so it was nice to see how he involved everyone in the cooking process. We were very proud to eat the handmade Gnocchi our children made with him. He used the freshest ingredients and really put his heart and soul into every dish. Its so refreshing to see a Chef love his job and the people he works for so much. Our entire family and our friends can't thank Chef Warren, and his team enough for making our daughter's evening the best she's ever had. We highly highly recommend him and look forward to working with him many more times in the future. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Great food very enjoyable experience.
Amazing. Warren and his crew crushed it, delivering a great selection of very tasty food to a group of around 70 folks, and his team was also super friendly and personable. The guests were very impressed.
We were delighted with Warren and the whole Kitchensurfing experience. The food was terrific. Our guests really enjoyed being able to learn about the food and talk with him as the evening progressed. He was wonderfully approachable and sensitive. This was a great alternative to traditional catering-- he added greatly to the fun of the evening.
Everything was delicious and Chef Warren has a delightful personality. I'm going to recommend him to all my friends.
An important factor is that the quality of the food was excellent.
We booked Chef Warren less than a week before our event for 50 guests. He was extremely professional, the food was phenomenal and the presentation was beautiful. I would book him again anytime! The zucchini cream puffs, a must for any party!
Warren is absolutely wonderful.
He catered our wedding, an intimate autumnal feast for 64 people, and he was a pleasure to work with every step of the way. A few months before the wedding, he came over to our apartment to cook for us, get an idea of our vision, and brainstorm with us. He was communicative right up to the big day, and we had complete faith in him. He certainly did not disappoint!
Warren and his team were on top of everything, super professional, and really went above and beyond to make our wedding so special. The food was AMAZING. Everyone says you don't eat at your own wedding because you're too busy entertaining, but we both prioritized eating because the food was so delicious. The ricotta gnocchi -- SO GOOD. Warren took our vision of an abundant family-style feast and seriously ran with it. He incorporated all of our favorite foods, and we both felt that he truly heard our thoughts and wishes through the whole process.
It's clear that this guy cares deeply about the food he presents and really takes pride in his work. We have already recommended Warren to several friends, and we can't wait to work with him again.
Warren has Heart and soul. A great person and a great cook! He did an amazing job for my husbands's Birthday. We had 30+ happy people. Thank you!
Warren is very professional and knowledgeable. The food was excellent!!
Warren did a great job for our dinner for 16 for my wife's 40th birthday. I was apprehensive initially since I had recently heard about Kitchensurfing online (no personal recommendations) and relied on his reviews, menus and quick call with him to select him as our chef. Glad I did. He came up with a delicious menu (Autumn Flavors) and some great hors d'oeuvres that I trusted him to surprise us with. He was prompt, brought along everything we needed (including some extra plates) cleaned up and was am all around good guy to share our celebration with.
Perfection. Chef Warren is such a pleasure to work with. He has such a personable demeanor, professional set-up, gorgeous display, inspired palate- every meal is truly lovely and satisfying. I can always rely on Chef Warren for the most beautiful ingredients and delicious flavor profiles. A very happy, repeat customer.
We booked Warren to cater our 100 person wedding this summer. He was absolutely amazing. He worked with us to select the exact menu we wanted.
The food was wonderful. My big Italian family is still raving about the roast pig (it was an entire roast pig stuffed with sausage and spices; it had a table all to itself)! His crew was very professional - and fun! They really helped to make our day special.
I would definitely hire him again.
Chef Warren was an amazing!!! All the guests loved the food, especially the short ribs and potato pancakes with caviar creme freche. Staff and service was very professional. It was second time we used him and plan on using him often in the future. No reasons to ever cook, just call chef Warren!!!!
Warren is unbeatable! The food was absolutely gorgeous and delicious. He is punctual and dependable and always responds in a timely manner. Can't wait to work with him again.
FIVE STAR dining with Chef Warren.
Truly a delicious experience, Chef Warren pulls off a fabulous menu. His presentation is so lovely and our group devoured everything. Such a treat! From the mini pizzas to the shaved vegetable salad - perfection.
Fantastic as always!!
Chef Warren is such a pleasure to work with. His dishes are inspired and impeccably prepared. Our group loves his thoughtful approach and his presentation is perfect. So so so delicious!
Great experience. Chef did a great meal for 6 - started with plated apps, fresh salad was followed by a nice lobster dish with rice and green beans. Everything was very fresh. Warren was easy to chat with and very professional. Only thing that would have been better is if he explained each dish in detail to all the guests. I would highly recommend and he leaves the kitchen spotless and leftovers in the fridge!
PERFECT experience...once again!!!
Chef Warren is the best.
Excellent. Chef Warren's food was as delicious as it was beautiful. We could not have been happier and I would use his services again in a minute. So pleased!
Great experience. Chef Warren showed up on time, the menu was as we discussed, he left everything clean, and the guests all enjoyed the food.
Our experience with Chef Warren was perfect from every aspect. The food was absolutely delicious and the presentation beautiful. Chef Warren works quickly, is incredibly professional, and left the kitchen spotless. He is an absolute pleasure to be around and created a seamless and elegant evening for us and our guests. We can't wait to have Chef Warren back to our apartment!!
Chef Warren always impresses our group. His menu was so delicious and elegantly prepared- with him, we always feel we are getting something very special. Healthy, fresh, perfect... thank you! Every dish is a culinary gem.
As always, Chef Warren selects the freshest ingredients, and presented a fabulous meal. Punctual, professional, and I appreciated his patience and commitment to leave the kitchen better organized than he found it! He also left some delicious leftovers that our entire family enjoyed the next day.
Chef Warren is the man! Great food, great energy, great guy.
AWESOME Lobster Meatballs!!! Every single dish was a delight- so fresh and delicious. Our group just loves Chef Warren. His presentation is perfection, very prompt, always professional.
Amazing Experience!!! Chef Warren and his team made my baby shower awesome. He surpassed all of my expectations. Very organized, quick, and efficient during the entire party. Extremely pleasant and friendly. The food was delicious and original. Thank you so so much.
Warren is awesome. Great guy, great food, super easy fun and delicious experience.
Awesome dinner! Everything came out perfect - would definitely recommend Warren.
Chef Warren really went out of his way to bring us the best possible dining experience. Presentation, as always, was lovely and the dishes were so fresh and delicious. Warren has a gift with flavor profiles and we feel very lucky to have access to such a talented chef. Excellent service- will definitely book again.
Warren left the guests hungry, the kitchen filthy and when confronted the next day had nothing to say but "I dropped the ball”. He didn’t offer any restitution, which might be Kitchensurfing’s fault since payment in full is required in advance.
We hired Warren to cater my husband's 50th birthday. We counted on 50 guests even though we were only 35 adults and 10 children. We wanted lots of hors d'oeuvres passed throughout the night. We explained that we were happy to pay more to have lots of platters with lots of choices so the guests wouldn’t go hungry. We told him we would prefer to have too many left overs rather than not enough. We also stressed we only wanted food passed around, nothing that required forks, knives or plates. We asked for a small buffet table with a platter of fresh cut vegetables, some cold cuts and cheese - only finger foods.
A week before the party I contacted Warren to confirm last minute details and cancelled the cold cuts to be replaced with one or two vegetable hors d’oeuvres options to be passed around instead.
The night of the party the small buffet table included: the fresh veggie platter, hummus, an eggplant dip, mozzarella balls, without a serving spoon, a spinach & cheese samosa tart, rather than individual samosas. The tart hadn't been cut and was not finger food. Warren chose to supply plates, but as per our discussions: no cutlery, thus it was impossible to either serve or neatly eat several of the foods on the buffet table.
The trays passed and the food was excellent. Unfortunately, I had to go to the kitchen multiple times to ask for more food for the adults, as well as for the children who were in a separate space, as everyone was complaining they were hungry.
Warren had told us he could create a “signature” cocktail and we chose a mojito. When served it wasn't good. The servers picked up the glasses so quickly throughout the night that the guests didn't have time to drink their drinks and the glasses depleted to the point where Warren chose to use all of ours, which he found in the kitchen.
When he left at the end of the night rather than leaving the buffet table filled with the uneaten food so the guests would have something to nibble on as the party continued, the table was cleaned bare, even though he left tables, dirty glasses, plates, etc. which he said he would pick up in two days time.
When Warren left, he took trays of uneaten food, even though I had continued to complain there was not enough served. After the guests left, I realized the refrigerator was bare. I surveyed the kitchen to find the stove covered in grease, the counters and walls where he had placed his garbage and tabletop grill were equally filthy. Every single cabinet was smudged with food. He left a dishwasher filled with dirty glasses and plates and as he hadn't brought enough glasses or cutlery everything I owned was dirty and in the kitchen or scattered around the party so that the guests who continued to party couldn't even drink a glass of water because Warren had used all of my glasses and left everything a mess.
While none of the above ruined our party, it was certainly not what we expected, nor what we had paid for. Since the Kitchensurfing requires payment in full in advance, the client has no recourse when the cater “drops the ball”. All in all, I know I could not recommend Warren, and I don’t know if I would recommend Kitchensurfing either.
Chef Warren was fantastic! We had the best time and the food was absolutely delicious! It couldn't have been a more perfect evening. Chef Warren was great to work with and came up with the best menu for our group. Everyone is still raving about the dinner and how incredible Warren was. He was teaching our group cooking tips and was entertaining everyone as well. Such a pleasure and cannot wait to have him prepare a meal for us again!
From start to finish, it was a Perfect experience. Warren is such a pleasure to be with and his food is absolutely delicious. Our faves were the kale salad, ravioli, chicken meatballs, flatbreads, all the apps, steak, sweet potato fries, choc chip cookies and carrot cake cupcakes. All of my guests were equally enraptured. Couldn't have asked for a better night.
Chef Warren did a wonderful job for our group of 28. We started with crostini and champagne, and then moved on to a delicious octopus salad. The octopus was incredibly tender, basically melting in your mouth. We had handmade ravioli and a wonderful beef tenderloin for our mains. For dessert, a basil mouse with roasted fruit and crispy granola. Not too sweet, an absolutely perfect balance of flavors and interesting as well! Chef Warren is also a great guy to chat with. He's funny, witty, and really loves food. Overall, a perfect chef for any evening!
Chef Warren was literally amazing! Our guests couldn't stop raving about the entire meal from the zucchini beignets to his handmade gnocchi to the delicious PB&J eggrolls. Most importantly, he and John were a ton of fun to have at dinner and share an evening with. We are looking forward to having Chef Warren at home again soon.
We had a wonderful experience with Warren. He was quick to get back to me with a great menu for a last minute brunch for 15 people. He arrived on time, served delicious food and kept the entire kitchen incredibly clean. We will definitely be working with him again!
Chef Warren arrived with two people, were seamless in the kitchen, professional and the food presentation was excellent. I would not hesitate to use him again. thank you for everything.
Friendly, prompt, and delicious as always.
Warren was great - arrived with all the food, most of which he had prepared offsite including a 6 hour smoked short ribs! the food was delicious, service impeccable and he left my kitchen spotless! we also changed the numbers from 9 people to 12 people at the last minute and Warren couldn't have been easier about it! thanks.
Perfection- our group loved Warren's menu. Everything was delicious and fresh; presentation was impeccable. Many, Many thanks!
Warren was great and the food was delicious. Fun guy to have around the kitchen and a really good meal. Would book Warren again for sure.
Chef Warren was super nice, professional and easy to work with throughout the process. Catered an office event for 100 with style. Lobster meatballs made the party and seamlessly worked around my space's complete lack of heating devices. He brought his own oven. He rocks!
Warren was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Not only was the food delicious but throughout the entire meal was he and his staff impeccably clean and neat -they left the kitchen spotless. The addition of a server was necessary. The food was beautifully served and presented and tasted just as delicious. I would absolutely recommend Warren.
Fantastic. Chef Warren was a true professional; fantastic preparation, presentation, ingredients, and clean-up. An amazing experience from start to finish.
Family dinner: 10 People, food allergies and other peculiarities. He nailed it--delicious, made it look easy and he's wonderful to have around.
Everything was great. Warren was on time, easy to deal with and his food was wonderful.
Chef Warren cooked a fabulous four course dinner for my parents and me in our home in NJ. His sweet potato gnocchi with lobster was out of this world and the nutella crepe cake he made for dessert exceeded my expectations. He was easy to communicate with during the entire process and turned an ordinary evening in our home into a special night!
Warren and his staff were fantastic. Every bite was amazing and they were thoroughly professional.
Warren and his staff were great! The food was delicious - best pecan pie I've ever tasted... and I don't normally like pecan pie - and they were all so helpful with event set-up and clean-up too. Thanks Warren and team for helping make our office holiday lunch so fantastic!!!
Warren and his partner were fantastic! He arrived before my guests (as we had agreed) and brought all of his own equipment. The food was amazing and he plated each dish and would come out to our dinner party and explain each dish. We never felt rushed and he stayed until we were finished and satisfied. I will definitely be using Warren again for a future dinner party.
Warren was AMAZING! The food was outstanding with great attention to detail! Everyone raved about the food! Very satisfied and will definitely use Warren again!
Warren provided us with a incredibly fun, joyous, delicious, and inventive evening. He and David cooked, cleaned, taught, entertained, smiled and added to the birthday party for my wife.
We did a lesson/dinner party.
Things to know:
1. Warren is a farmer so you want to take advantage of what he suggests is super fresh from his sources.
2. He's incredibly confident in the kitchen and it shows in how he demonstrates technique. Nothing hurried, no panic, everything was always fine.
3. He's immensely competent. Years of experience coupled with a genuine commitment to craft.
4. He's fun to be around. Some people are emotionally intelligent. Some aren't. Warren is.
Chef Warren was absolutely incredible throughout the entire process. He was responsive and helpful while planning the menu and very accommodating when things changed. For the night of, he showed up on time with everything he needed. He handled limited kitchen and space with no trouble. The food was fantastic, so delicious and perfect for the evening, everyone was raving. Warren was such a delight to have for our reunion dinner - he was great about explaining dishes and telling us about the food, he was extremely personable and so fun to spend time with. Would definitely love to book him again!
Chef warren and his staff are alway amazing!
We had a wonder cocktail party with delicious food for our Hanukkah Party. We had beautifully presented food.
Chef Warren is a pleasure to work with and he is friendly and cheery even when working with 30+ kids , 3 dogs and 1 naughty puppy!
We used Chef Warren for our office Thanksgiving lunch. It was such an incredible meal! Everything was amazing!
We hired Chef Warren to cook a nice dinner for us in the Hamptons for a 16 member bachelorette party. We didn't expect to beg him to stay and hang out with us after! He was so friendly and professional. Right from the initial booking he answered all of my questions and worked with us to put together an unbelievable menu. The meal was delicious and it made the night so special and unique to not have to leave the house to enjoy a 5 star meal. Thank you so much!
So professional- excellent presentation, beautiful/delicious food. Thank you!
Warren was amazing. Everything went so smoothly, he was engaging, the food was delicious, and it was overall a perfect evening. I would recommend him to anyone!
Warren crushed a BBQ for 25 at my house this past summer. he is professional, efficient and makes a damn good brisket. I highly recommend him, especially for bigger parties that he can handle flawlessly.
Warren was awesome! From the booking through event execution, everything was spot on.
We have had Chef Warren twice and have loved both meals! They were delicious, beautifully presented and cleaned up just as well. I would highly recommend him!
Great food, great service - Warren and his team impressed us from the minute they walked in - until the left. He went above and beyond, delivering great food served up in very creative ways - which our guests loved (it was a 40th birthday party with 80 guests). Warren and his team 'took charge' right away, which put me totally at ease. I didn't have to think once about the pace of food coming out of the kitchen - and could focus on entertaining our guests. We'll definitely have Warren back in our home again!
Warren was great! We had a bit of a glitch, but Warren went above and beyond to make sure that everything was taken care of for our event! He was very reliable and incredibly professional! I would definitely would book Warren again.
From start to finish Warren was just the amount of professional and laid back chef we were looking for to make our evening special with a bunch of little kiddos running around! The food was nothing short of spectacular and had a great "shock and awe" effect. Had a great time. Thank you so much. We'll be having you back soon!
Warren, thank you so much—we had a fantastic time! The smoked Texas brisket and the turkey were amazing. Warren is a great character and an outstanding chef—highly recommended!
Not only is his food delicious but his presentation is always creative and meticulous. For a picnic themed lunch he decorated with wheat grass and staged the chicken to look as if it were spilling out of the basket. He's a regular for our Tuesday lunches and his food is always enjoyed!
We have a beautiful cocktail party catered by Chef Waren! The food was beautifully presented and delicious! Waren are his team are so friendly and easy to work with and everything comes out perfectly.
Our guest loved the kitchensurfing idea and warren.
Warren and Dave were fun to be around and prepared fabulous starters and a tasty dinner. They did everything from beginning to end and were truly delightful! Susan Maloney
Delicious food, great selection!
Warren and his team were great! The food was amazing and the drinks were just right! If we do another gathering in NY we will most certainly be calling Warren!
Chef Warren was incredible. He created and executed an outstanding meal that was not only delicious but also made with care. He came to the apartment early, was prepared, timed the meal perfectly, and made the evening a delight. The pasta making was a real treat for my daughter and he even made some pasta with other ingredients on the fly! It was an evening we will never forget.
We needed a variety of platters to accomodate gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian restrictions. Food was excellent. Plentiful and prepared in our small, stove/oven-less kitchenette. Great catering for lunches, will definitely use again.
Handmade memories did our Seder for passover. Chef Warren did an amazing job. The food was delicious, he was timely and easy to work with for our Seder. He was friendly to our guest and kind to our 5 year old daughter who wanted to hangout with him all NIGHT.
Warren was absolutely fantastic! Everyone was very happy with the food, presentation, and overall experience. We will definitely be using him again for events.
Incredible. Very accommodating of dietary restrictions & created a memorable Valentine's Day experience. Thank you, Warren!
Chef Warren was great, homemade cheese was amazing. Interacted with guests and was very professional and friendly. Food was delicious!
In planning my boyfriend’s surprise Birthday Dinner it was imperative that I find a Chef who could execute my vision flawlessly and not need lots of supervision as I was not going to be on-site during the prep process. Chef Warren and his team were amazing to work with! They provided professional service, personal attention and many smiles and laughs throughout the entire experience.
He created the perfect menu based on my Bourbon + Bowties theme and Mixologist Michael Simkin created two signature cocktails which were huge hits! The food was impeccable and personally I am still dreaming about that Smoked Lamb! All of the guests and the Birthday Boy were raving about the food.The cream on top of this night was being able to fully enjoy our 14 guests and not worry about cooking, tending bar, serving each course or lifting a finger. The evening was an outstanding success!
Thank you, and I look forward to using Kitchen Surfing, specifically Chef Warren again for another event. We already started chatting about Summer soirees.
