On 12-17-15, the Employees' Union of the State Bar of California hired Chef Marcel for our Holiday Luncheon. Chef Marcel and his staff came on time, set up quickly, and were very professional. The food was delicious and they were able to serve over 100 employees in less than an hour, and clean up and pack up quickly. Our luncheon was a huge success! I have received nothing but positive comments from my Union members. I highly recommend Chef Marcel and we will definitely use his services again! Thank you, Lita Abella, President Employees' Union of the State Bar of California

Pam came over and provided us private instruction in our home on basic cooking skills. Pam did a great job. We will be hiring again this next weekend to help us with preparing for Thanksgiving since it will be our first time cooking everything ourselves. I would recommend Pam to anyone looking for cooking instruction.

I am setting up for my 4th company BBQ using Jesse and his family, Moms recipe is awesome and there service is great. They work very hard to make everyone happy. I invite customers, subcontractors and suppliers so nobody is there at one time, Jesse and his mom didn't have a problem staying later and kept on cooking. The rate to stay late was way fair. and cooking for 100,people is no problem

I hired Haute Productions for a private cooking class for a bachelor party event, and we had the best time. Keith was an awesome teacher and host, he made the experience wonderful. Everyone had a blast and it was the best part of the entire weekend. Not to mention the fact that the food was awesome! I would highly recommend using Haute Productions for any event you may have.

From the moment Lindsay contacted me with a quote, I was excited to have her cook for a very special birthday celebration. She was thorough, thoughtful, and she easily switched a few things up when I explained that one of our guests had some dietary restrictions. She asked to bring a server to help move the evening along, and I was happy she had the help (and Yvette was an absolute doll). On the day of the party, she was prompt, came incredibly prepared, and not only was course after course unbelievably delicious, but served in and on beautiful dishes (she provided). She and her server were personable, helpful, and by the time we were done eating the beautiful 4 course meal, the entire kitchen was spotless, and she was ready to head out. I will absolutely ask Lindsay to cook for us again, and hope it's not too long before I do so. I cannot recommend her more highly. Book her before some celebrity snatches her up as their personal!!

Claudine is a wonderful person and a great cook. Her food was delicious. In hindsight, for the size of our house and kitchen, I probably would have used someone who was a bit more organized. She was a little late and had to bring lots of things for her food preparation, so dinner was a little late. She is very hands on which is great, I just didn't have the space for it! She and her assistant did a really nice job serving and cleaning everything for me. Claudine is a very hard worker.

Linda came to our home and showed us how to cook several dishes in a healthy and delicious way. She made the process very fun. It felt like a party. We learned a lot about cooking and eating healthfully and will be able to use that information in our daily food prep. I highly recommend her and am sure you would be happy that you enlisted her services.

Diane and her staff were excellent. They came on time, they helped serve and clean up. I had several guest who arrived late and she offered to allow me to keep her chaffing dish to pick it up later. Just a delight to work with and the food was fantastic, especially the turkey lasagna. To die for. Would strongly recommend.

Shelly not only makes vegan cooking simple and delicious, she provides the tools and tricks you need to prepare meals for your family! She teaches with love and passion and educates the public about plant-based nutrition and provides the info you need to make the switch from omnivore to vegan or enhance your current vegan lifestyle. I have been vegetarian for 20+ years and vegan for 9 years and I learned so much from Shelly just from one class! I can’t wait to learn more, as she has so much to offer and an entire cook book worth of recipes in her head to impress any chef!

I've worked with Diane as both a journalist and an educational collaborator for more than five years. We've taught classes together, shared ideas and journalistic by-lines. I enjoy visiting her blog, The Family Farm Box for seasonal culinary inspiration. We regularly reprint her FFB recipes on EatSomethingSexy.com as our Recipe of the Week and they are always well-received by our readers.

It just doesn't get better salads, sandwiches, lunch entrées that taste great and are healthy at the same time. Every meal choice you make lends to chef L's passion for organic food and his mastery in cooking it. Impatiently waiting for my next meal. Try it, you will like it!!!

Travis was a joy to work with from start to finish. Not only did he craft a menu that was perfect for the occasion, but he also was composed, engaging, and relaxed the entire time he was cooking for us at the house. He prepared an unbelievable BBQ lunch, a breakfast by request on the fly, and an entire dinner prepped for 12. He was efficient, tidy, dependable, and personable. I will hire him again.

Peggy C. I had tried Heather’s Savory Artichoke Heart, Crispy Sage, Caramelized Onion and Italian Cheese Quiche—and knew it was good; along with her very special (& somewhat decadent) Savory Caramelized Vidalia Onion Cheesecake_Spread, so I ordered both for the holidays. They were made with love and care and brought to my door. I loved having them on hand—as you know there are always more mouths to feed around the holidays! The care and pride she takes in her work really shows. The dip/spread is a real treat—very elegant and rich. The quiche is unlike any we’ve ever had and is truly delicious. I would highly recommend her and her cooking for anyone’s event or home.

Elaine helped my daughter and I with cooking lessons and menu ideas that would work with both of our dietary issues. We spent an afternoon together - through the magic of web cams. We prepared a vegetable lasagna, a spinach and strawberry salad, the most amazing miso soup ever and a squash and edamame treat that was out of this world. The dishes we prepared were made from fresh, organic ingredients that were gluten free, light on salt and most importantly quick and easy to prepare in our busy schedules. Elaine took every culinary and dietary issue of ours and came back with brilliant solutions. Elaine is knowledgeable and approachable with the ability to communicate what she knows without being preachy. I've ordered the Herblends seasonings, and she also has a cookbook. I'm very impressed her knowledge and abilities make great food and show us how she does it.

We hired Jory for a 20 person office party. Jory's cooking was immaculately presented and so flavorful. We wanted delicious food that was organic, sustainable and healthy—and he delivered. He made Lemon caper chicken, a chickpea tzatziki salad with olives, pesto vegetable medley, homemade granola with yogurt and honey, and charred tomato and kale salad with feta. All served in festive silver platters. On top of the food tasting superb, Jory was a great host and fit in seamlessly with our guests whose questions were answered professionally and in good spirits. Using him again. For sure.

Marukah is an excellent chef. I hired her for a cooking party at my home and not only was the food delicious, but she was very professional and made sure everything was clean while she prepared everything for the meals. All of my guests got to participate in cooking every single course. I highly recommend her services. I have hired her again but this time we are having a children cooking party to teach our kids how they can eat healthy too!
