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

The catering staff was amazing and polite. We got one chef, one assistant, one server and one DJ. They arrived on time. Server helped us set up and clean up everything. DJ was great! They did a wonderful job! Price is very reasonable and acceptable. Paid them with extra tips when service is finished. Love the team! Recommend for any events!

The response was quick and efficient so that part I would give 5 stars. The part that I wish was a little more professional was the presentation of the food. We had to ask the chef to describe his food and we had to set our own table, which in the past when we've had personal chefs that was done for us. The halibut was cooked perfectly and we enjoyed our meal very much. The chef was pleasant and you could tell he "loved" what he is doing which is so important. If we ever come back to Terranea we would use the Catering Carnival again.

Marc is fantastic! This is the first time i have used a personal chef and can say its the best choice ive made.. I train gym 4-5 times per week and approached mark to make me 6 meals for 6 days of the week all equally portioned with proteins and carbs. The food was delivered fresh every two days and packed in plastic containers. It was even labelled with the nutritional values. The food itself was restaurant quality! I have eaten out at restaurants alot over the years so was little worried about how the quality of the meat would be and how well it would be cooked. Marc uses the freshest ingredients and cooks the products to perfections! I would highly recommend mark wether its a small dinner gathering or something more serious like myself with 36 meals per week! Thanks Marc

I loved working with Susan Kowalski from Wild Thyme Catering. She was professional, helpful, positive, and personable. At the last minute, I decided to throw my husband a surprise birthday dinner for 8 people. I wanted to try something new and have a chef prepare dinner in our home. Susan was able to work with the short time frame and within our budget. She listened to what I said my husband would like and helped me put together a fabulous menu. The food was outstanding and exactly what we talked about. Everyone had a great meal and an awesome time. I definitely recommend Susan, and hope to have her back sometime in the near future.

Understand my trepidation never having a professional Chef cooking for me in my humble home. I was seconds away from meeting and greeting the highly acclaimed Celebrity Chef, MARK KEARNEY and his AWESOME associate Victoria. I could belabor the OBVIOUS, however, kudos for the preparation, presentation , moreover, QUALITY of the Signature Cocktails, Appetizers, and Dinner OUTSTANDING. Another exceptional highlight of our evening was Chef Mark Kearney himself. So easy to be around, not pretentious, humble, funny, kind and genuinely warm. If you should ever have the opportunity to meet this amazing man and have him prepare OATMEAL you will be impressed

I used Aline as a personal chef for a bachelorette party. The dinner was incredible! Not only was it delicious, but it was beautifully presented (especially given the limited resources we had at the house). Aline was a joy to work with and I would recommend her to anyone! :)

I truly enjoyed working with Amy. I had never hired a private chef for an event before so was nervous about quality and professionalism but I couldn't have made a better choice than Amy! She was super-responsive and pro-active with ideas and suggestions. We had a pretty hard-to-please group and everyone commented how wonderful everything tasted and especially how nice it was to not have to slave over the meal in the kitchen. Amy's pricing is also very fair and open to working with various budget ranges. There is no doubt I (and the dinner guests) will be contacting Amy in the future! Look no further than Amy...she's the best!

Chef Lofthouse is incredible. He catered my 26th birthday party and fed 32 famished twenty somethings. Everything was amazing from the stuffed mushrooms to the bbq sliders! He was prompt, responsive and immensely attentive. I never saw an empty tray the entire night. This allowed me to relax and enjoy the party because I knew that he was 100% on top of it. We all know how hard it is to let go when you're hosting a party because you want everything to be great and your guests to be happy. I don't think I've ever had a party run as smoothly as this one and Chef Lofthouse was a big part of that. I will not only be hiring him again but I've already referred him to all my friends and clients. Thank you for a great night Chef!

Amazing!! Fork & Thyme catered an intimate wedding dinner for us and were the talk of the night! Lindsay listened to everything we wanted and crafted an impeccable, seasonal, fresh menu that reflected our taste. She was intuitive with the pallet and went above and beyond in every way. We are big foodies and I recommend using her for Anything and will continue to use her from here on. Thank you Fork & Thyme!!

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!

His knowledge was amazing. He was able to breakdown, in an easy to understand way, the science, and the art of cooking. What was also great was that he didn't just teach recipes, he taught the different principles of cooking and because of that I can create great, delicious dishes from scratch, not matter what I have in the fridge. My mind was blown when we covered salads. I didn't know there was another side of salads that made it more enticing and more high class. (see picture below) Overall, Chef Know-It-All is an amazing, artful chef that has the ability to make others fall in love with cooking. He's patient, insightful, and heavily invested in the student's progress and success. Every question I had, he answered. And every hurdle I had, he helped me get over it. Oh and did I mention it was fun! He taught me some flair tricks that the professionals use to make cooking fancy. Now I'm flipping sauces, cooking with big fires, and sprinkling flourishes left and right! I simply can't enough. 5 out of 5 stars for me.

I have been trying to eat healthy, but always thought "healthy" good wasn't very tasty. Chef Marukah has proved me wrong time and time again. The food she makes is not only super healthy, but also delicious and quite filling. She always uses the freshest ingredients and combines them with creativity to make the most satisfying meals.
