  • Bob Cook – Owner, Captain Cook & Associates

“Ryan, just a note to let you know that New Years Day Party was a great success. You did an excellent job with the event planning, menu selection and execution. Mahalo!”


“For anyone considering Covert Affairs, I highly recommend them for any event. I had searched over a month to find a quality responsive caterer for our corporate event. We were looking for someone that had enough experience and creativity to build a menu that would “wow” our crowd. Ryan and his team are incredibly professional, prepared amazing food, and went above and beyond any caterer I have ever worked with. I will use Ryan for all our events in Hawaii. Our guests were so impressed, they were asking for business cards and how to find him for their own personal events and anniversaries. Regardless of the size of your event or dinner party, you will not be disappointed.”


“What a sensational meal we had that was cooked by Chef Covert at our home in Diamond Head in Honolulu. A wonderful Hamachi new style sashimi followed by several courses. He really outdid himself and our guests are still raving!”


“I hired Covert Affairs to cater our annual Harris Christmas Party where clients, employees and vendors were in attendance. Ryan's food was awesome, all were raving about it. There was always fresh hot hors d’oeurves being served up all night, no one had to wait. His service was outstanding and people commented about it all night.”


“We are so happy that we went with Ryan for the chef of our wedding. The food was amazing, and his attention to detail was exceptional! He is a complete professional with an undeniable talent for culinary creations. Ryan is an easy to work with professional who went above and beyond our expectations, which makes us definitely want to do business with him again.”


“Ryan's creative menu, consistent quality and unwavering professionalism are always welcome in our home.”


“Thanks again for a wonderful event! We are back in OK and wishing we still had some leftovers! We made steaks (Canant Ranch steaks) last night and my daughter asked if we were making them like you did b/c they were sooooo good. My parents were also very impressed. Thank you!.”


“Thank you so much for yesterday!I am so sorry that you had to work in the hot sun for so long yesterday. I really appreciate the work of you and your staff. The couple and guests really enjoyed your cuisine! I hope work with you again!”


“We can't say enough good things about Chef Ryan's culinary skills. Our lives have become incredibly enhanced since finding him. His creations are a delight for all the senses and we are so pleased that his dishes contain such healthy ingredients. Mahalo Ryan.”


“We had a family BBQ of 20 people, and after some back and forth, I decided it'd be a better time if I wasn't a slave to the grill. Ryan arrived at 10:00, after shopping at 7 markets, fed at 3:00, and cleaned up till 5:00! He had one assistant and an old archaic kitchen and ROCKED IT. BEST food I've had and all EVERYONE talked about! Plentiful to no end - by the time it was all said and done the people count doubled. We did NOTHING. He planned the menu, he set up the buffet, he washed the dishes. A culinary magician, it's your loss if you go elsewhere.”


“Covert Affairs has been my go to Chef for all my entertaining needs for the past eight years. His culinary talents are not just visually exquisite but bursting with flavors that awaken all your senses. Well traveled, along with great training Chef Ryan brings his culinary delights from around the world to all of us in Paradise. Thank you, Chef Ryan!”


“Ryan's cuisine is not only unforgettable (when the amazing taste of an edamame dip is high on your wish list after several months, you know you are in good hands) his food is luscious, delicate, scrumptious and luxurious. He is the most professional chef I have ever worked with, so passionate, creative and wholesome. He is always ready to present you with yet another healthy, fresh state-of-the-art dish. I can rest assured that our very exclusive guests will enjoy the experience of a lifetime.”


“Thank you! We had a fantastic time and the food was tremendous. We truly enjoyed having all three of you at the house with us. We can't wait to work with you again!”
