I simply hire him for the job. It has not been scheduled yet and so I cannot comment on the quality of his work. Working with him was effortless and pleasant.

About

Sandra and her staff were professional, courteous and attentive. She set up a gourmet style dinner for 50 guests for my daughter's birthday party. I was impressed with the quality and presentation of her food and so were all my guests. What I really liked about Sandra was her integrity to not only make sure every detail was perfect but also keeping me updated every step of the way and going out of her way to provide more than she promised. For example, she secured a pastry chef for my daughter's birthday cupcakes as an added service. She also brought extra staff to insure there were servers available to refill drinks and help serve guests (which was above and beyond my expectations). I didn't have to do a thing. She came in, set up, tore down, cleaned up and even packaged leftovers for us to keep. Sandra also made alternative dishes for my guests who requested it without hesitation. I would recommend her for any event big or small as she clearly is well connected in the area. By far the best private chef in the valley.

John and his team were very professional and communicative. We hosted a cocktail party for ~75 people, and he was flexible as our RSVP list grew, and accommodated us every step of the way. The food and drinks were delicious and beautifully presented. I would definitely work with John again.

Actually VERY GOOD. We had 50 guests for a Caribbean themed engagement party. Jennifer came up with a super buffet dinner- with some dietary requests handled well. Everyone enjoyed the food and there was plenty. If we were to do it again we would tell Jennifer to spice the side dishes up a bit more and hire her or someone else to help us replenish the trays of food and wash up so that we could mingle with guests. Many thanks to Jennifer for a job well done!

About

I was a student apprentice with Rachel in 2008. Rachel was the most inspiring and knowledgable nutrition coach I had ever met. I was so excited to meet her and I immediately wanted to follow in her footsteps. I started out in her classes learning recipes and kitchen skills. She taught us knife safety, how to use a vitamix, food safety and proper preparation and storage of meats. She also took us shopping and educated us on her selections. I then became an apprentice to her personal chef training program. I went on to have my own small personal chef service called Urban Vitality. I still hear Rachel in my head telling me not to graze while in the kitchen cooking. I hear her telling me to stand facing the cutting board centered and grounded. All of her food preparation tips I still use today, even as I cook for my family. I could go on and on about how Rachel inspired me. She is an excellent healthy chef and very educational teacher. I highly recommend her services.

I have attended several of Stephanie's classes. They were NEVER boring, she has such an upbeat attitude and makes it fun to learn. The biggest problem is at the end of the classes I want to steal her and take her home to be my personal chef!! :) I would highly recommend any of her classes, she is truly an inspiration and an artist in her craft! Look forward to booking more classes when I am in the Phoenix area!!

Our Experience with What's Fresh was absolutely wonderful in every way! The food was fantastic. They took care of all of our peculiar dietary needs and restrictions and catered to us in the time crunch of a lunch hour that we had open.

About

Kent helped me get married and stay married. I'll never forgive him. :) We met Kent the old fashioned way. We won him at a Silent Auction years ago. He discussed the menu with us, asking for likes and dislikes. He was a true professional, plus he cooks good too. He cooked so well in fact that we bid on and won his services a second time. In the meantime, we became friends as well. He always had the time to talk food and music, two of the four passions in his life besides his wife and his motorcycle. His wife is number 1 still, I'm pretty sure.. I also invited Kent to join my Getworking Group, a networking group on steroids. He demonstrated time and time again that his customer service was equal to his fine cooking. Good food, a bit of the blarney, fantastic attention to detail and customer service set Kent apart from most of his peers. There are personal chefs...and then there is Kent.

I've used Chelsea as a personal chef for nearly a month now. I'm eating the best tasting, healthiest food of my life and loving every bite. From our initial meeting Chelsea took extensive notes on my food likes and dislikes as well as noting my food allergies. She consistently surprises me with original meal ideas I never would have thought of (as well as making anything I request when I have a craving). Chelsea is very open to feedback and quick to adapt to changes I ask for. I find myself looking forward to every meal that she prepares for me, and I can't recommend her enough.

About

Do you remember your first trip to Italy and what you loved the most? Let me bring those same emotions to your home while sharing with you traditional and authentic recipes from all the Italian regions. Buongiorno! My name is Caren Peyton, and I am passionate about Italian cuisine after living and working for 30 years in Italy. I had the wonderful opportunity to learn Italian cooking secrets taught to me in the homes of Italian mothers and grandmothers, from most of the major cities and locals living in the countryside villages and mountains; secrets that have been in the family for centuries. And now, I want to share this with you in your home. I was the owner and operator of a gourmet restaurant, Non Solo Crudo, in Piemonte, Italy, from 2004 until 2009. I teach in your home with up to 12 friends, 3 authentic dishes while assisting me hands on in the kitchen. You will be tasting 3 different wines and learning about the grape and the region it originates. My price is $65 per person that includes the cooking course, gadgets, 3 course and 3 wine varietals from Italy. I also perform as a Private Chef in your home for special events like; dinner parties, anniversaries, birthdays, business lunches, bridal luncheons and wine tasting parties. I will come to your home for a free consultation to determine your needs, preferences and constraints. I will review my menu offerings and have you select the 4 course menu, wine varietal and the date of the occasion. I will do the grocery shopping and buy products from highly selected produce and meat stores and prepare the meal in your home. I am not a caterer with full on dish supply's and glasses. The cooking accessories are necessary to be provided by the host of the event. I will assist in preparing the table, serve the meal and clean up. This way the host may enjoy the event without worries... Pricing is determined by the number of people and the menu selection. I prefer to cook for 6 to 12 persons. I will need assistance if the number of persons are over 12. Exceptions can always be considered up to 25 persons. My idea of fine dinning is cooking boutique style. The presentation, selection, quality of the food is what I am all about. Enjoy with me the true flavors of Italian cuisine. As an extra bonus, I can capture the moment on my HD video camera while dinning with your guests. I will edit and produce a special 10 minute video with a private link for you and your guests to remember by. A wonderful touch to add for a memorable occassion...

About

Mature, reliable, professionally-trained chef. I have 8 years of experience and many references, past and present. My customers love my service. Are you too busy or do you just hate cooking? That is not a problem because I love to cook. Before I became a chef I put dinner on the table for my family 5 nights a week and I headed the hospitality committee at my children's school for 10 years. I have thrown more parties than Martha Stewart. "Martha" is what my friends teasingly call me. I have a degree in Cordon Blue Culinary Arts from Scottsdale Culinary Institute. I graduated at the top of my class, 3.94 GPA. I will plan, shop, cook, serve or pack your meals in containers, clean up and keep your kitchen organized. I cook everything from down home to uptown. Meatloaf and fluffy mashed potatoes with really good gravy, Thai shrimp curry with Jasmine rice, shrimp and scallop pasta with a saffron cream sauce, Portabella mushrooms stuffed with brown rice and veggies, red or white lasagna with beef, chicken, seafood, or grilled veggies, Pulled pork and BBQ baby back ribs (I am good at the grill), Brined pork chops with a blackberry gastric and mango salsa, crab cakes on freshly dressed greens, enchiladas any way you like them. My customers love my "do it all with a smile attitude", my creativity, and my reliability. My customers tell me they actually save money in the long run because they are not eating out all the time and there aren't those groceries sitting in the refrigerator growing fuzz because they never got used or freezer burnt steaks because you never got around to grilling them. You pay for your groceries and $35.00 per hour to me, I can usually get 3 complete (entree starch and veggie) dinners done in about 3 - 4 hours. There is a two-hour minimum depending on travel time. I am located in the northwest valley and travel mainly along the 101 into Scottsdale, and along the 51 into Phoenix and Paradise Valley. So if you dream of healthy fresh food being served to you and your family you should really give me a call so we can get together and talk about the benefits of personal chef service.
