Jose is a phenomenal chef and caterer. He's the first person I got to for any of my event needs. He catered my birthday surprise party and my wife's birthday party. Jose is incredibly resourceful, full of ideas and always finds a way to go above and beyond. Food is always great, very competitive on pricing and always very flexible and service oriented for your needs. He's definitely my go to guy for any culinary needs I have.
We had a wonderful experience with Chef Jillian and Francesca at our dinner! Besides the food being absolutely 100% divine, their service was incredible. Starting with a really great cocktail all the way through to the most amazing dessert - this was top notch. And on the front end, it was so easy to work with Chef to create the perfect menu for our occasion. Thank you!! We already want to come back!
She is a great Chef. The food was great. All of our clients enjoyed a nice traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings. I would definitely like to use her services in the future and would give recommendations to friends.
We have had personal chefs in the past and all were good experiences, but Shawna was a cut above. The experience that she provided was exemplary in every facet. Shawna was personable, prepared, and her food was exquisite. She will be called upon in the future to cater any event we may have. We give her our highest recommendation.
Chef Mumsie is very passionate about her work and her clients. She worked really hard to ensure the success of the event and was very resourceful in executing all planned dishes. Chef Mumsie has exquisite taste and helped plan the menu for the event. We were very happy with the end result.
Love love loved Sage Blue catering !!! The food was not only delicious but amazing !’ The presentation and time and energy and care Lavonne put into making our event a success was much appreciated! The vegan dishes were so good my guests didn’t even know they were eating healthy!! Her appetizers were beyond yummy!!!! Looking forward to having her cater Easter Brunch 🌺
Chef Francesco prepared an excellent meal. The food selection and the wine pairing was excellent. The ingredients selection is incredibly thorough and worth a Michelin star! Well done and thanks for a great meal!
I am beyond grateful to Thumbtack for connecting me to Chef Keith Prante and his team at Hautè Productions Events and Catering to cater my mom's 80th birthday celebration. They are absolutely A-MAZING! Chef Prante was one of two chefs who responded to my request via Thumbtack, and I also received a personal referral. Neither of the other caterers offered ANYWHERE NEAR the quality, selections, variety and value that Hautè offered at my price point. We had our tasting today, and it absolutely sealed the deal! Everything was delicious and the presentation was outstanding. I highly recommend Hautè Productions to any potential customer who appreciates excellence, accommodation and genuine customer service.
Chef Leslie Ann made an AMAZING variety of gorgeously plated scrumptious food for a friend's baby shower. Everyone raved about the food! Chef Leslie Ann was professional, creative, and accommodating. I will definitely ask her to cater my future events!
We hired Chris after tasting her cooking at our friend's dinner party where she was the chef. She cooked dinner for us off & on during the week when our schedules got to be too much. This was during the early years of parenting and making dinner after being at work just didn't fit in my schedule. We loved having her in our home and her food was always so delicious and nurturing! I loved her help it freed up about 8 hours a week for me to spend time with the kids and or relaxing as a family. Dinner time was so enjoyable since I wasn't the one making it or cleaning up. I think she is a fine chef with a very special touch. We went to a Dinner party last summer where she was the cook...her roasted chicken w/ pasta and pesto was divine! Tracy
Awesome experience from start to finish. Almost more than the amazing food, we loved having Joan in our house. We instantly hit it off and our kids loved her as well. Joan and I planned a menu for an informal dinner party for my wife's birthday that consisted of salad, bolognese, and a deconstructed cannoli...all made from scratch in our kitchen. The food was absolutely delicious and her company was delightful. Next time we have a need for a personal chef, we will go straight to Joan!
Everything exceeded my expectations. We will definitely be using Chef Adreas Hinojosa again.
Unbelievable chef! Stephani's attention to detail and artful plating of every course is exceptional. EVERYTHING she makes is delicious beyond words. If you are looking for the BEST chef for any of your dining needs - look no further....you've found the best.
Whether entertaining for an intimate gathering eight or a larger function, Kathy brings innovative recipes, excellent suggestions of wine pairings and she takes care of everything from room arrangements, linens and dishes, the wine and the flowers! And to top it off, she is a great epicurean storyteller!
Just want to tell everybody what a fabulous chef Diane is ! I like to eat on the healthier side so she Incorporated healthier ingredients in some of my favorite recipes which I have shared below. Give her a try and you won't be disappointed.
I invested in Mici's amazing services last year and purchased a 3-month package, after tasting her food at a friend's house who had invested in the same. Mici provides so much more than cooking! She brings warmth, kindness, a great sense of humor, and a lot of love. She is SO professional. I had other chefs who came in and just never seemed to leave, taking FOREVER in the kitchen which became an inconvenience. Mici could make a week's worth of food in 4-5 hours (several different delicious dishes all tailored to my specific diet desires) and it was incredible! And she always made sure I had healthy snacks and healthy desserts to much on during the week and feed my sweet tooth without all the unhealthy processed sugar. She was able to meet all my desires for Gluten free, dairy free meals and kept refining her meals for me each week as I let her know what dishes I loved and what not so much. For me, I loved having lots of greens and less beans. And she was able to make that adjustment for me - and many other adjustments - quickly as we went along. I can't recommend Mici enough!! You won't regret having her fill you with nutrition and laughs, all with the utmost professionalism. Hope this helped you make a decision!
In my mind, I create the most idyllic, renewing, peaceful, joyous silk painting retreat...ever known to humanity. Then I close my eyes, put my dream into a pink bubble and let it go. Voila..my dream comes back to me ...only better than I could ever have created myself, because now it includes a Gourmet Chef named Gigi Cohen. Home-Sweet-Home Cooking served three lovely, sumptuous meals at 8 am..... noon and 6 pm every day...promptly. My room was near the kitchen, so I did get to watch she and Glen (assistant) prepare the meals together. Gigi and Glen were very orderly and methodical and they worked in peaceful harmony together, in prep, serving and cleanup. I have a few other dreams in a few other bubbles...floating around out there...and NOW they do include GiGi Cohen and "Home-Sweet-Home Cooking" Thanks Gigi and Glen, from Suzanne Knight and the San Diego Silk Guild
Chef Pierre was a complete “success” in my mom’s words. He prepared a wonderful dinner for my Mom and Dad and their friends on their 52nd anniversary. He was on time and they said everything was delicious. Chef Pierre worked with me on the East Coast while he was on the West Coast. He answered all of my questions and was patient with me. Thank you, Marckende!
From our first contact to meal reheating, Jones at PREPPED was professioal, warm, and enthusiastic. The meals are inventive and forward thinking. The quality was matched by the value and responsiveness! I can’t wait for the next opportunity to enjoy this gem of a chef!
Jory came to our home to prepare a dinner for 10 guests. Our house staff was delighted by his ability to keep the kitchen clean while preparing for service. Since I run a food service company myself, this alone is laudable and the sign of a true chef. He prepared hor d'oeuvres, appetizers, three entreés, and served the crepe cake we brought in from Lady M Bakery. Afterwards, he offered coffee service while service wound down. The quality of the food was superb on all counts, and many of our guests asked for seconds and still left their plates empty. Mediterranean dishes of fennel branzino, victorian lamb, and gardenherbed lemon chicken were the highlights of the night. During service, our guests were shocked to see the double doors be drawn open and to find a spotless kitchen in between each course. Our guests are very well-to-do in the fashion industry. Jory is young and very well rounded personally—service was socially and culinarily seamless. He was even welcoming when our guests pillaged the leftovers in the kitchen throughout the night. My wife and I will book him to cook parties in the future and you should too.
Jared is caring, talented, and an amazing chef! I recommend him with great enthusiasm.
