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.

Sasha with Body & Soul Food did a fabulous job with my personal cooking class in my kitchen. I set this class up as a date with my girl friend and she enjoyed it very much. Sasha was very well prepared and it was such a joy having her demonstrated and instructing us on the dishes we made. Our class was schedule around lunch time so we enjoyed the dishes as our lunch. It was such a perfect date. Good food and fun. I highly recommend this experience to people wanting to do something different as a date. Sasha is the one to call to make it happen.
Normally, I wouldn't give 5 stars so easily, but Chef Tess is impressive not only as a chef, but in character as well. I took a rather large group of kids and a couple of adults to one of her cooking classes and was AMAZED at her ability to engage and control the group. Several of the children have ADHD, and yet with Stephanie's warmth, laughter and sincerity, that group was all hers. She was professional, canny, and witty, and we were laughing with her almost the entire time. The quality of the instruction as well as the food went above and beyond my expectations. As a lover and connoisseur of healthy and REAL food, Chef Tess is definitely gifted and ready to teach and impress.
Jennifer was everything I hoped for and more than I expected!! I hired her to conduct a family cooking class for Mother's Day. She was able to accommodate my last-minute request and tailored the meal to our preferences. She is professional, patient (I have teenage brothers), and a very talented chef. She shared a lot of fun tips & tricks of the trade and because she brought all of the ingredients & tools we were able to pull off the perfect surprise! An awesome group activity where everybody participates--Hire her if you get the chance!!
Lisa is an impressive professional. Lisa gave an informative cooking class and was able to answer all our questions. She was very organized and detailed. The meal and service was top notch! We enjoyed her charming personality and can’t wait to do it again.
I took a private boot camp cooking class with Tiffani a few weeks ago. I can't say enough amazing things about her! She taught me so much in a short period of time and gave me lots of confidence to start cooking on my own. Tiffani is an outstanding cooking instructor!
We hired Flare For Flavor to do a cooking class for 6 people. The food was great and we had a BLAST! These ladies are so much fun. Learned great cooking tips as well. We will definitely hire them again.
i have had the pleasure of tasting Andrea's food both at her house as well as at my house. In both cases the food was cooked from scratch, even when she came to my house, and her food was truly an unbelievable experience. Ever since i had the pleasure of tasting the "midnight cooks" cooking, resturants have never been the same. Now I simply make up excuses to see her husband, Darrell, in hopes that i get treated to another dinner. This is precisely why i say "i miss her dogs" but really "i miss Andrea's cooking"
I wanted to have some friends over for Dinner but did not want to do the cooking. Nutrition intuition saved the day! Amber made us roasted chicken and mashed chipotle sweet potatoes it was all delicious. It was fun having her over and it felt like a friend in the kitchen as we talked about life and food while she prepped our dinner. We will definitely be hiring Amber again in the future, especially around the holidays!
Most cooks are either a good cook or a good baker. Patti is amazing at both... anything from a simple meal to a gourmet meal with sauces cooked to perfection to breads and desserts, Patti does it all.
The food was outstanding! The burgers were cooked perfect, the fries were delicious and I loved all the different aioli sauce options. The restaurant is fantastic but their catering definitely steps things up!
I have taken several cooking class from Joe Turley who is now the Affordable Gourmet with several of my friends for special occasions, a birthday party, Christmas gift .The classes or cooking parties were fun, entertaining and very informative. I will definitely recommend the classes for anyone and I will definitely use them again for classes.
My cooking class with Hasnah exceeded my expectations. She shed a whole new light on what it is to cook. This is my first time using thumbtack and I took a risk that was definitely worth it. Her knowledge of the kitchen and culinary world are extremely extensive. To be honest, I was intimidated at first but she relays the lesson in such a comfortable relatable environment that it felt like we were just two friends cooking and creating something together. The experience has made me want to explore my kitchen in ways I had never thought, and allowed me to narrow down and focus on what it is I am really interested in. So many things to learn! So many fun and creative culinary adventures to be had. Thank you so much. I left inspired and excited. :)
Chef Yvette is professional and compassionate all in the same breath whether she is cooking for the homeless or catering a grand ball her food literally ministers to your very soul! Leaving you and your guest wanting more whether it's southern or gourmet this chef does it all and does it well!
Chef Rhonda's classes are affordable, practical, delightful and fun. The food was delicious, wholesome and top shelf, with recipes and menus suitable for all occasions and palates. Chef Rhonda is very knowledgeable, engaging, humorous, professional and real.
I requested a vegan cooking class as a gift for several of my friends. Amber consolidated all the food restrictions and preferences of my guests and developed a fabulous menu. She came fully prepared and provided enough interaction to keep all the ladies busy and engaged. She and her assistant were a delight and quite knowledgeable. They cleaned up before they left, I would highly recommend Amber.
Elyse's cooking was absolutely delicious. Her passion for food came through in her creative menu pairings and flavorful dishes. Her ability to wisk together everyday things in my cupboard into a culinary masterpiece was truly inspiring. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a chef on any occasion.
Shannon has done cooking in our home for the past week and she is a dream come true. I had very specific things I wanted her cook, and she jumped in and got it done. I had a plan, but wanted help working it out and she was able to really solidify our plan with her expertise and experience. She has fulfilled all my expectations and more.
I learned so much about healthy eating and cooking with Chef Rachel. It improved greatly how I prepare and store foods for my family. I loved her class so much that I have volunteered with her in order to learn more and hosted and cooking class in my home for 10 of my friends!
