I hired Chef Tim to cook for a 9 person Bachelorette Party. He did a fantastic job and is very professional! The food was outstanding, delicious, and the presentation was amazing - Everyone enjoyed the meal! If you need a reasonably priced private chef - he is your guy. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. Thanks Tim!Sep 5, 2018Verified
I was looking for a personal chef for my wife for her birthday. Tim was quick to respond and after looking at his reviews I was comfortable deciding to use his services. Tim is a magician in the kitchen. He provided a menu a few days before and answered any questions I had about the dishes he recommended. The food he puts together is amazing and he's very personable as well. I'd recommend Tim to anyone looking for this type of service. If/when I need a personal chef again, I'll be reaching out to him for sure!Apr 24, 2017Verified
We contacted Chef Tim about catering our father's 70th birthday party. He was very responsive while we were arranging everything, and suggested a great menu that everyone loved! He even made a special bowl of my dad's favorite food just for him! Many birthday invitees complimented us on the great food and execution. The experience was fantastic and the party was an absolute hit! Chef Tim helped us create a wonderful and memorable birthday party! He was very knowledgable, well organized, and personable. We highly recommended Chef Tim and we will absolutely be contacting him for all of our future parties.Apr 20, 2017Verified
Chef Tim catered our daughters 16th Birthday this past weekend and did an excellent job! Our guests loved his personality and raved about the food, he catered to our paleo/gluten free menu without batting an eye ! Highly recommended we will definitely be using Chef Tim in the near future :)Sep 27, 2016Verified
We hired Tim to do a private cooking class and dinner for a group of 10 at an airbnb in Tahoe. Tim let us choose from 3 different menus ahead of time and came very prepared. He brought all the equipment necessary and had backup plans in case if we didn't have a grill or, in our case, our grill was too small. He did arrive a bit late, but adjusted his setup and cooking to still make the time we targeted for dinner. The group really enjoyed the lesson with Tim. Tim was very friendly and engaging, and the food was delicious. His pricing was very affordable, and we gave a huge tip at the end because we really enjoyed his service.Jul 16, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Clients should know that pricing is flexible, and is dependent on service style, complexity of menu, and how many guests the meal is prepared for. I do not have any set menus, or set prices, as each event is tailored to the specific needs and desires of the client.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically, after we connect on Thumbtack and decide to work together, we either speak via phone, or in person, and talk about menu suggestions, service style, food allergies/phobias that I need to be aware of, and establish a relationship between myself and the client. Our next step is to establish a menu, and pricing. Then we talk about a deposit, and lock in the date! I am always available to discuss and process changes to the menu, how many people are attending, or whatever else may develop that would affect the event.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I constantly look for opportunities to network and learn from others in my field. I do research almost daily on new recipes and techniques, and I make sure to hit as many of the "hot" spots as possible to see what is trending in the culinary world.
