I hired Pete for my husband's 60th birthday... a 5 course sit down dinner for 14. Everything he turned out was creative, delicious and beautifully presented. He was extremely efficient and personable; very flexible and easy to work with when planning the menu. He arrived on time and took over my kitchen with great ease and confidence, as if he'd been there a hundred times. The timing of all the courses was impeccable. All the guests mentioned how impressed they were with him and with the food. I would highly recommend him as a personal chef for you event!

We hired Sat to provide dinner for a party of 10 at a vacation home in Dillon Beach. It was an intimate wedding celebration, and Sat fit right in. Not only was the food excellent, but Sat was very personable. We really enjoyed having him there, cooking dinner and serving appetizers as we had our celebration, and then serving us dinner. Sat was very accommodating in customizing the menu for us. We had meat eaters, a vegetarian, and two people who required gluten free food. The main course offerings included steak and lobster, chicken, and a vegetarian special. The presentation of the food was beautiful, and Sat did an excellent cleanup job after dinner. The price seemed more than fair for the outstanding service provided. We will happily hire Sat again next time we want a meal provided by a personal chef!

Sean did an outstanding job for my dinner party of 4. I have never hired a personal chef before using Thumbtack and it has always been on my bucket list. This was the perfect experience and such a great alternative to a dinner out at a restaurant with friends! As for the chef-I highly recommend Sean. He provided me with several dining options with local fresh ingredients and was able to accommodate dietary restrictions. Above all, he was such a pleasure to be around! I can't wait until my next dinner with Chef Sean.

My husband forgot to tell me he had agreed to host a cocktail party for 40 guest only 8 days away. When I talked to Graham he said he was available and within a day he had a menu and some suggestions about the bar.Graham arrived at our apartment in S.F. 2 hours before the event and just made everything so easy and and gracious that the party seemed like it had been planned way in advance. Graham served small bites of very tasty canapes and wonderful french style sliders that satisfied everyone. The whole evening was a success from set up to clean up and I was able to enjoy being the hostess and not worry about anything. Graham makes eating good food a total joy and I look forward to catering future parties with him as the Chef. Carole

Daniella was extremely professional, her food was tasty and it was loaded with veggies. I was nervous beforehand as I have never hired a personal chef before, but Daniella assured me that all would be well. I really appreciated her warm and grounded energy. I also liked that she explained the menu and ingredients to my party. Her staff person was also competent and had good energy too.

Ok the best way to describe Tom Hirsch is "Chef Extraordinaire" I wanted to do a food themed party and I chose Cuban dishes...not knowing much about Cuban food I left it to Tom to work it out and omg he really went above and beyond everything was prepared to perfection I even had a Cuban friend who wanted to meet this Cuban chef!!! I had 50 guests who gave Tom a standing ovation!! I was so overjoyed and pleased he is preparing a kosher meal for 30 guests on Sunday. I absolutely loved his cooking his manners and his service!!!

We had a wonderful time with Chef James. He was so professional and made our dinner experience so memorable. We asked Chef James to let his creative juices flow and surprise us with his recipe (all we asked was that the meals were seasonal and refreshing). He came back with a luau themed meal including: ceviche, apple cabbage salad with ginger sauce, tomato and chard salad, AMAZING tamales, and much, much more. He also brought his own cookware! Thank you for a fun night, chef!

Aria is an amazing coach. I am an Adult beginner. I’ve been around water , but never learned how to swim and very uncomfortable inside water. Its been now 3 lessons and I am already getting comfortable and don't panic as much as first time. Aria has been a great help. She is very creative and teaching me patiently.She answers all my silly questions and also always on time for the class. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to hire Personal Instructor for the swim lessons.

We hired Zachary to teach us how to make pasta. He suggested 3 different kinds of shapes and fillings. He was punctual to our home and came prepared with all the ingredients. The pasta turned out great and it was a fun experience overall. I would recommend anyone to take lessons with Zachary and/or hire him as a personal chef.

So glad we hired Dan from Mise En Place for our most recent dinner party! After discussing options with him, we went with the Kokkari-inspired menu on his website. It tasted exactly like the dishes we've had there so many times. Amazing. We've already booked him for another party in a few weeks. So happy we found Mise En Place on Thumbtack — Dan's now our go-to home chef!

Viet-Thu cares about the ingredients she picks and the food she creates, and it shows through her cooking. She gives you an ultimate culinary experience yet grounds you with flavors that are familiar. Her background in nutrition and cooking makes her an extremely capable and professional chef. She is punctual, organized, and accommodating. Hire her for your next event and she will listen to your every request and deliver the meal that goes beyond.

Jacquie is great! She helped me with cooking and hosting an amazing birthday BBQ, with highlights such as grilled corns, bacon wrapped hot dogs and amazing salads. She knows exactly what she is doing and has a very much non-bullit style at work, which I really appreciate. Thank you Thumbtack for finding me such a great chef!
