Is prepping up 100 lbs of shrimp for shrimp cocktail

Let it/them go in 2009

I heard a great sermon today from TD Jakes I wanted to share an 
excerpt of it with everyone. Very inspirational but, true! 

There are people who can walk away from you. And hear me when I tell 
you this! When people can walk away from you: let them walk. 

I don't want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, 
loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying 
attached to you. I mean hang up the phone. When people can walk away 
from you let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody that 

The Bible said that, they came out from us that it might be made 
manifest that they were not offor us. For had they been of us, no 
doubt they would have continued with us. [1 John 2:19] 

People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if they are 
not joined to you, even if you got super glue you can't make them 

Let them go. 

And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person it just means that 
their part in the story is over. And you've got to know when people's 
part in your story is over so that you don't keep trying to raise the 

You've got to know when it's dead. 

You've got to know when it's over. Let me tell you something. I've got 
the gift of good-bye. It's the tenth spiritual gift, I believe in good- 
bye. It's not that I'm hateful, it's that I'm faithful, and I know 
whatever God means for me to have He'll give it to me. And if it takes 
too much sweat I don't need it. Stop begging people to stay. 

Let them go!! 

If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong to you and was 
never intended for your life, then you need to . . . . . . . . 


If you are holding on to past hurts and pains . . . . . . . . . 


If someone can't treat you right, love you back, and see your 
worth . . . . . . . . 


If someone has angered you . . . . . . . . 


If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and 
revenge . . . . . . . . 


If you are involved in a wrong relationship or 
addiction . . . . . . . . 


If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or 
talents . . . . . . . . . 


If you have a bad attitude . . . . . . . . 


If you keep judging others to make yourself feel 
better . . . . . . . . 


If you're stuck in the past and God is trying to take you to a new 
level in Him . . . . . . . . 


If you are struggling with the healing of a broken 
relationship . . . . . . . . 


If you keep trying to help someone who won't even try to help 
themselves . . . . . . . . 


If you're feeling depressed and stressed . . . . . . . . 


If there is a particular situation that you are so used to handling 
yourself and God is saying "take your hands off of it," then you need 
to . . . . . . . . 


Let the past be the past Forget the former things. GOD is doing a new 
thing for 2007!!! 


Get Right or Get Left. think about it, and then . . . . . . . .

Chef Kahlil has been practicing the art of fine food preparation for over two decades. His training began in the late 80's creating some of his family's favorite dishes at home. After working in various restaurants throughout high school, Kahlil decided to "formalize" his training when he pursued a career in the illustrious United States Army. During his tenure in the US Army Kahlil worked his way up the ranks to Sous Chef. Gaining vast experience with various cuisines, Kahlil had the opportunity to work in one of the busiest units at Ft. Bragg that served over 4200 meals per day.

While on tour at Ft. Riley, KS, Kahlil moonlighted as Sous Chef for Clyde's Steakhouse and Italian eatery. Working at Clyde's created Kahlil's strong passion in Italian cuisine. After dedicating nearly six years of service, Kahlil decided to learn about the front of the house so he took on a position as Assistant General Manager at Don Pablo's. After completing his management training at Don Pablo's, Kahlil quickly found his way back to the what he affectionately calls the "heart of the house" in the kitchen! He decided to move from the front of the house into the position of Kitchen Manager to hone his skills with Mexican meals!

Having cooked for many years professionally and for friends and family Kahlil was encouraged to establish a company that has a vision of "Making Your Culinary Wishes a Reality." So in 1999, Chef Kahlil made his start as a personal chef by catering parties for friends, family and colleagues as a way to make extra money. Word quickly spread of his innovative, tasty and soulful dishes, and soon "Catering To Your Whims" was born. Catering To Your Whims... is an extension of Chef Kahlil's creative techniques.

Chef Kahlil is known for taking his passion for using creativity, mixing exotic herbs and seasonings into every meal, and sharing it with others.“ Chef Kahlil's specialties include Classic American, Seafood Entrees, Creole Cuisine and Nouveau Soul food with Caribbean accents.

In 2004, Chef Kahlil was invited to Los Angeles to participate in the Black Cuisine Expo culinary competition that was hosted by Jay Anthony Brown in which won for his famous Sauteed Cajun Crabs.

In 2005, Chef Kahlil cooked for the Pervis Ellison Foundation fundraiser event, in which the proceeds helped at risk youth athletes participate in The Pervis Ellison Basketball clinic.

In 2007, Chef Kahlil was charged with becoming the Executive Chef for Bethany Baptist Church one of the fastest growing ministries on the East Coast (23,000 members) under the leadership of Bishop David G. Evans.

In 2008, Chef Kahlil was brought on board to cook for New Jersey Nets, starting guard Devin Harris.

6 Revealing Secrets All Brides Should Know Before Choosing Their Caterer….

…and what most other caterers refuse to tell you.

Planning for your wedding should be one of the most exciting experiences in your life. Sometimes, the uncertainty of the “How To’s” and the “Where To’s” can be overwhelming and even discouraging. That’s why your caterer should be utilized as your most important resource.

1st: Your caterer should be flexible. All caterers (including hotels) have the ability to be flexible. Don’t let them fool you otherwise. Big Hint: The margins most caterers make on their events allow at least some room for negotiation. If your caterer won’t negotiate, then keep looking! But remember, you have to ask.

2nd: Your caterer should provide a Free consultation and Free tasting. I can’t stress this enough. Make sure there is an opportunity for you to participate in menu development, sample tastings and presentations. Test driving this car is a must!!!

3rd: Good caterers have the ability to provide a dual service as your event coordinator. This is a huge advantage and one your caterer will most likely not voluntarily offer. Your caterer, if experienced, has much of the knowledge and know how to plan and design your even from start to finish. You should be asking them to coordinate ALL aspects of your reception. Tell them it is what you expect from them.

Many caterer’s won’t do if you don’t ask. So Ask! This is a sure fire way of making the most of your catering dollar. Expect to be charged moderately for this service in addition to your catering, but not too much. Usually between $500 and $1000. It is well worth it! There is nothing like being comforted and assured of a stress-free reception. The details are covered and nothing will be left to chance.

4th: Caterers can and should bring it all together for you. This goes hand in hand with even coordinating. You should expect them to be responsible for ordering rentals, staffing, set up, floor plan design, buffet, appetizer, cake and coffee presentation, bar and beverage service, itinerary development and execution, event supervision and clean up.

5th: Your caterer needs to be accessible and available to you. A caterer who is a professional and one who understands the importance of special events like wedding receptions, should also understand that brides are sometimes uncertain about their initial decisions regarding reception site, floor plan, or itinerary. When you caterer serves the dual purpose as your coordinator, they need to remain accessible and available to consult with you and continually re-evaluate the planning phase of your upcoming event. Your piece of mind is too important so be sure to ask about your caterer’s availability.

6th: Most importantly, your caterer should offer you a “Money Back Guarantee”. Why not? You need to be assured that your caterer will not run out of food. Running out of food is the “Cardinal Sin” in catering and you must request this from your caterer. Make sure your caterer guarantees in writing that they will not run out of food for the amount of guests you have paid for. If they do, expect to receive a full refund for your total costs of the food.

These are all very important facts you should know before choosing your caterer. Just read what some of our clients said about Catering To Your Whims catering services….

The ability to work within our budget for our daughters wedding was incredible. His prices were so much lower than the hotels that we just couldn’t pass up his offer. In October 2007, my daughter, our friends and family joined in the celebration of her marriage. The ceremony and reception went off with out a hitch. We were delighted with the mouthwatering food, presentation and serve staff that were provided. I could have not imagined using anyone else but Catering To Your Whims. I highly recommend them.
Houston Family, Lindenwold, NJ

I couldn’t believe the exceptional quality of Catering To Your Whims food at our daughters wedding. It was like he delivered the restaurant to the back door. Chef Kahlil and his staff were professional and right on time. It seemed effortless. I recommend Catering To Your Whims catering for any occasion, especially weddings. They do a fabulous job!

How To Make Sure Your Caterer Makes You Look Like A Hero.

Next to public speaking, the biggest fear most people have is looking bad in front of their peers, family or friends. When a caterer doesn’t live up to your expectations, you open yourself up to looking bad in front of your guest.

Most people hire a caterer without checking important facts like…

• What do their customers say about them? ( Ask to see testimonials.)
• What is their quality of food? ( A caterer should insist you sample before you commit!)
• Will the food be “re-heated” or fresh? ( Nothing worse than dry, tasteless food.)
• Do they have different options to fit your budget?
• Are they consistently “on-time” with their service?
• What are the size of portions you are paying for? ( A lower price might equate to less food.)
• How much notice is needed to book a catering? ( Wouldn’t it be nice to have the ability to feed 1000 people with 24 hours notice?)
• Can you get a written proposal the same day you called?
• What service is included in this catering? (You don’t want any surprises on the day of your catering.)
• What if more people show up than expected, or you run out of food? ( This area leaves you the most vulnerable with your guest.)
• What “Guarantee” do they provide?

Now you definitely are armed with some “food for thought”. Please use these questions as a guide when searching for a caterer. The right answers will make you look like a “Hero”.

Bon Appetite!

The Nine Biggest Mistakes When Planning A Catered Event

The next time you are looking for a caterer please keep the following items in mind that I have shared with many of my clients over the years.

1. Not Sampling The Food Before The Event

You would be surprised how many people call up a caterer and book an event without tasting the food. This is critical. What happens if the food is not what you expect? You leave yourself open to looking bad in front of all your guests and their family. Believe it or not more people will remember the “cold, tasteless food”, rather than the true meaning of this special event, a day of camaraderie and fellowship.

2. Failing To Have A Budget And “Goal” In Mind

You know the importance of setting goals. Goals are a focal point to rally your family around. The vision of attaining these goals is what keeps everyone motivated and on course. A catered event is no different. You had better have a vision of the end result. Do you picture a black tie formal event, or would you prefer guests casually enjoying a traditional family style meal with all the fun?
The second part of the equation is your budget. Knowing in advance how much money you have to spend will save you time in exploring options. There is nothing more frustrating than having a specific meal in mind without the budget to see it through.

3. Basing Your Decision Just On Price

The old saying, “You get what you pay for” rings truer today than ever. Competition is such that one caterer cannot afford to over-price their service. Most caterers should be within 5% - 10% of each other for similar menus and levels of service. You’ll find someone offering a rock bottom price is cutting corners somewhere.

You need to make sure and compare apples to apples. Is clean up included in the price? Is the food cooked fresh or re-heated? What about portion size? What is the quality of the serving ware and utensils? Is desert and beverages included in the price? What is the gratuity or service charge? What happens if the caterer runs out of food? The list goes on and on. You see all caterers are not created equally. You owe it to yourself to make sure you know what you are paying for. This will help you avoid any unpleasant surprises.

4. Choosing One Entrée Instead Of Two

Most group meals consist of a number of guests that have special diet and/or desires. Years ago you could order one entrée and be sure everyone was happy. Today, you need to consider adding a second entrée. Perhaps a vegan or chicken dish added would accommodate all. Not every event requires two entrees, but it is advisable to find out on the front end. A professional caterer should have options available to please everyone without breaking your budget.

5. Forgetting To Explore All Possible “Options”

The price of two cars with different options can vary as much as $5000. Caterings are no different in the fact options can add to the price tag. The opposite can also ring true. If you are willing to forgo certain items or extras, you might be able to negotiate a lower price. Make sure you ask about the “base model” catering if you are on a tight budget. Most caterers will work with you. If you have a larger budget be sure to ask about the extras. You might have enough to add the full service, hors d’oeuvres, raw bar or other amenities.

6. Failing To Find Out What “Service” Is Included

As mentioned earlier, you get what you pay for. This includes service. Find out exactly what the caterer does as part of his service. Will they stay till the end and clean the entire area or just through the meal? Who is responsible for the trash? Does the caterer plan on setting up and serving the meal, or will the guest serve themselves. You need to be aware of what you are getting for your money. This allows you to receive the service you expect and prevents any unexpected surprises for you before, during or after your event.

7. Thinking The Caterer Won’t Run Out Of Food

Have you even been to a party and they run out of food. How did it make the host look? Running out of food is the biggest catastrophe for an event. Make sure your caterer provides you a written guarantee they won’t run out of food for the number of people you agree on.

8. Not Having A Plan For Extra Guests That May Show Up

As good a job as you will do in taking reservations and estimating the number of guest, there will always be some people show up unexpectedly. Usually, a caterer will require you pay for the exact number of guest you guarantee. If fewer guests show, you’re stuck paying for food you didn’t use. If extra guests join in, you are more than likely going to run out of food.

Some caterers use a “flexible guarantee”. You give the caterer a guaranteed number of guests, and the caterer guarantees there will be enough food to feed an extra 10%. If extra people show, you pay for them. If they don’t you’re not on the line for uneaten meals. If you are afraid fewer guests will show up than expected, you can guarantee a lower number. The 10% leeway will protect you in the event you guessed wrong. Again, that advantage to this is that you minimize your investment in meals that go uneaten. Make sure you insist on this kind of guarantee. There are many reputable caterers that offer the “flexible guarantee”.

9. Using A Caterer That Doesn’t Guarantee Your Experience

Guarantees are part of ding business for most industries. This protects you, the consumer, from not getting what you expect. You have the right to receive what you expect. Look for a caterer that guarantees their product. An example would be if the caterer runs out of food or doesn’t provide the services that you contracted for, you don’t pay. Make sure you go into your even knowing you are covered. Don’t place the risk on your shoulder. You’re giving up valuable dollars. You have every right to expect a guarantee for your important event.

I hope this information proves to be helpful for you!

Successfully yours,

Foodborne Illnesses

It's that time of the year. The potluck food Olympics are about to begin. Co-workers, neighbors and family members are anticipating taking their new recipes to holiday parties and family reunions. But, they're bringing more than just food. They're bringing armies of germs, bacteria and microscopic organisms that would love to work their way into any and every digestive tract they can find.

Everyone is obligated to bring a casserole, desert, meat, or salad. However, they may not take as much pride or care in the preparation of their contribution. Even worse, they might actually mean well but, they don't follow the rules of good hygiene. They simply don't know how to prepare a dish and reduce or eliminate the risks of food borne illnesses.

Personal chefs cook in a lot of homes. Any personal chef could tell you about at least one client house they would classify as a "Danger Zone" for breeding of all kinds of yucky germs and viruses.

Kahlil Wyche is a ServSafe (food safety) certified personal chef in Voorhees, NJ and owner of "Catering To Your Whims; a Personal Chef service". He explains, "I have seen everything from piles of moldy, dirty dishes stacked on the counters, cat litter boxes in the food panty, bugs in the flour, mouse droppings around the stove, spoiled milk and other unrecognizable green, hairy foods in the fridge. Add the shedding cats walking on the counters and dogs flinging slobber from floor to ceiling and you've got a breeding ground for some pretty nasty stuff that can make you very ill."

Chef Kahlil says that you should always question whether food items at pitch-ins are properly cooked, cooled and prepared for serving. Food borne illness can be very dangerous and the risk increases dramatically when foods are not properly cooked or are exposed to warm temperatures that promote the multiplying of bacteria and germs.

Here are some guidelines that you might want to print and share with family and coworkers before your next get together.

Rules for A Healthy Pitch-In:

If you don't know how to cook, it's okay to pick up a bag of chips and some salsa. You'll only get teased for a day or so.
Wash your hands (with soap!) before you prepare your famous meatloaf. Use hot water and anti-bacterial soap. If you finish scrubbing before you can finish singing the "Star Spangled Banner" your hands aren't clean.
If you have a mouse problem, see number 1 above or get a kitty.Put kitty and doggy in the bedroom and vacuum up any hair that might find its way into the brownies.
Check all ingredients to make sure they didn't expire in 1987.
Don't double the oven temperature and then reduce the cooking time by half just to get the casserole done faster. It doesn't work that way! Cooking foods to an internal temperature of 140-degrees will kill most organisms.
Don't leave cooked items on the counter for three hours to cool. Make a cooling bath of water and ice in a large container and set your dish in it for about 30 minutes to cool it down and then seal it and put it in the fridge or freezer.
If you accidentally sneeze on the plate of cookies, feed them to your family…not ours!
Don't put your item in the trunk of your car on a hot day. Use a cooler to keep foods hot or cold.
Don't set food out until right before it's time to eat – especially items with dairy products or mayonnaise.
When in doubt about your coworkers or extended family members' hygiene or cooking abilities, suggest hiring a personal chef to help with food preparation.
Ask everyone to pitch in a few bucks or have the company pay for the services. Everyone will be less stressed and personal chefs know how to prepare, store, transport and serve food items. And, while there's always a risk of food borne illness, a personal chef will dramatically reduce the risks. Here's to happy, healthy eating!

Industry Information

According to 2003 study conducted by, there are approximately 6,000 personal chef businesses operating in the United States and Canada. As culinary schools, colleges and universities add personal chef studies to their culinary curriculums, the number of personal chefs is expected to grow.

Entrepreneur Magazine recently chose the personal chef business as one of its top six home-based businesses to start in 2004.

There are currently three support organizations providing training and support to the personal chef industry. These include the United States Personal Chef Association (USPCA), American Personal Chef Association (APCA) and Personal Chefs Network (PCN).

The American Culinary Federation and the USPCA offer certification programs for qualified personal chefs. However, certification and professional culinary training are not required for persons operating personal chef businesses.

Cooking Tips

Just wanted to share of couple of cooking tips for all of the readers out there. Every week I will dropping some cooking knowledge and recipes here on my blog so tune in and feel free to comment or shoot me any suggestions you would like to see!!

Cooking Tips

Chef Kahlil when I use the double boiler method I always wind up burning my pan, what can I do to prevent the pan from burning?

When using a double boiler, put a few marbles or a jar lid in the bottom pan when the water gets low you will definitely know by the rattling when sound and this will save the pan from scorching.

Chef Kahlil I was trying to make a beef stew the other day and my hand got a little heavy with the salt. I wound up having to run to the market and buy a couple quarts of soup because I only had 30 mins before my guest were going to be arriving. Could I have prevented or fixed this problem?

Here is what I would have done, you simply add a cut-up raw potato and simmer it in the stew for about 30 minutes. The potato will act as a "sponge" and will soak up the salt. After, doing this discard the potato and you are ready to serve up the soup. If you don't readily have a potato for the remedy, add more unsalted liquid (water, stock, etc.), a little tomato sauce or chopped tomatoes (or something else slightly sweet), and a bit of lemon juice or vinegar to counter the saltiness.

Until next time, BonAppetite!

Chef Kahlil

Freeing up time - We do the shopping. We prepare the meals. We clean up. All you have to do is dine!! These days time is at a premium. Allow us the opportunity to save you some time to do the things you would really like to do.

Please give us the opportunity to sit down with you and discuss your food preferences. "Catering To Your Whims..." is fully licensed, certified and insured for your protection and safety. I wish you a successful and enriching year.

Successfully yours,

Chef Kahlil G. Wyche
