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!

Having worked with a few different chefs, with varying results, I can enthusiastically recommend Chet Chase! From start to finish, working with him was a pleasure. Prior to my event, Chet proactively responded to my requests, suggesting options, working with my budget and numbers - and adjusting the menu when my numbers changed. During my event, Chet and his assistants were thorough, on-time, organized, adding an item on the fly, and provided a seamless experience. And something I have not seen from other chefs - clean, stocked with their own cleaning supplies, and left the kitchen as clean as it ever was. I will definitely be using Chet Chase for my next event!

I hosted a 50th birthday dinner at our home last night form my wife and 12 of her close girl friends. Senorita Gourmet Andrea Gray catered a Mexican themed dinner for us and did an outstanding job. The ladies absolutely loved it and my wife could not have been more pleased with her birthday dinner. Thank you Andrea. We interviewed three other private chefs for our dinner before deciding to go with Andrea. She was the most professional, the most responsive, and by far the most creative. Of course we wanted great food (Andrea can deliver that), but we were also looking for something unique and creative, without being stiff and formal. Enter Andrea, with her Mexican themed dinner complete with her own plates, glasses and table decorations. Fun, Festive, and Uniquely Fresh! As for the food and drink. Key highlights were the Raspberry Mojitos, Avocado Soup, Quiche de Calebazita, and Mexican Corn Cake. I highly recommend the Una Senorita Gourmet.

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.

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

Chef James is an artist. Good chefs are. He is also an excellent teacher – in all the best aspects of the word. He explains the foundation of what he is doing. He repeats and demonstrates basic cooking concepts in different ways to make sure ALL of his class catches on. He talks about cooking theory – but reduces it to immediate practice. His lesson about the difference between taste and flavor was perfect (you need to talk with Chef James). More importantly he lets the class do the work and learn. How awesome is that. Oh yes, you and your friends (or family) have fun.

Joshua arrived right on time and got started with the meal prep. We were busy with our family reunion and I didn't have to do a thing. Joshua took care of everything. The appetizers, salads, meal and dessert were all delicious. It was so fun having him there and he gave us descriptions of each dish which was served. We all enjoyed it and the food was amazing! I would definitely recommend having Joshua as your personal Chef. It was a great experience!!

Amazing experience! I couldn't have imagined a better in-home event. Adam was responsive, flexible and very committed to delivering exactly what we were looking for - not only from a food standpoint, but from the overall experience. I had never had someone come into my home to cook and wasn't sure how comfortable that would be, but Adam was perfect - warm, friendly, fun and totally low maintenance. I was able to enjoy time with my visiting family while he prepared and served one of the best meals I've ever tasted. Every course was better than the one before, and the steak and sea bass entrees were elegant and delicious. If you're shopping personal chefs for a special occasion in your home, stop searching and hire Adam. I promise, you will not be disappointed. Thank you again, Adam. Your contribution to this celebration was beyond measure.

Everything about this event was stunning...the meal was simple, tasty, incredibly fresh, with local ingredients and beautifully prepared. Michelle was extremely professional, responsive, and managed all of our requests or changes. She added her own touches like hand written menus, fresh flowers and candles that made the evening that much better. I've hired a few professional chefs before and she was by far the best! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a personal chef experience.

I went on a girls' trip to Napa Valley. I wanted to hire Chef Cheri for our first night dinner so we could relax. She told me upfront she would be out of town but she would be happy to assist us. She informed me that she had a vast network. Over the next 2 weeks she connected me with a chef and a photographer. She followed up and was very timely. We were so pleased when we arrived at the home and she had 3 bottles of wine waiting on us. She also had baked us custom red velvet cupcakes with elephant decorations (DST)...they were amazing. The chefs she connected us with were on time. In fact, they beat us to the home. They were so professional and made a delicious dinner for us and provided table service. The photographer she connected us with was punctual and took the most fabulous photos. He was very easy to work with. So I would call Chef Cheri anytime I needed any service in the Bay area. She is top notch and provides world class service. I felt like her family by the time we finished.

We had a fantastic evening of cooking, eating and conversation with Chef Traci as well as a cozy night of sleep and a delicious assortment of goodies for breakfast! How could you go wrong? My parents bought an experience with Chef Traci for me for Christmas. My best friend and I (who both love to cook) went for the overnight experience. It was easy to book our evening and we received info about what we would be cooking and what we might want to bring along. Traci was ready for us right on time and welcomed us into her home which is basically a Bed and Breakfast through AirBnB with all delicious, wholesome treats made in house. There was a welcome brownie, which I may have eaten before we started cooking...possibly. After we settled in, Traci got us started cooking a fantastic chicken Tagine, plus two other courses. She’s very relaxed and down to earth, providing direction without micromanaging. She did give me some good tips to improve my chopping! Then we abandoned our aprons and enjoyed being served the fruits of our labors. The tagine was To. Die. For. Good. We then tucked into one of the cozy, clean, well-appointed AirBnB rooms and slept soundly. The breakfast spread was serve-yourself and there were so many options! I had one of each, naturally. As you can tell, we had a great experience. I would say everything about the experience was delicious, hearty, cozy, without an ounce of pretense. Those looking for a shiny Sur La Table class and a night at the Four Seasons should look elsewhere. However, those who want to have a classic cooking experience and a cozy, like-home-but-better getaway, you’re in the right place. It’s almost like cooking with your aunt, if your aunt was a professional chef, served you all three courses and did all the cleaning ;) oh and I went home with almost a week of leftovers! Thanks Chef Traci!

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.

I had a great experience hiring Jon for my New Year's party. He arrived on time and quickly prepared a round of every dish while the guests were coming, so that it was ready at the time that everyone was there. As the food was eaten, he and Amanda presented more, so no dish was ever empty. I found his work of excellent quality, and he was very personable and friendly. My New Year's party was a success because of Chef Jon Avalos. Highly recommended!

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.

I hired Eli as a personal chef to cook for my husband's retirement party. We had over 40 people and I wanted to be able to enjoy the party without the stress of planning, shopping and cooking for days. This was my first experience with a personal chef and it was fantastic, I have never been so relaxed entertaining. Everyone should experience the joy of entertaining with a personal chef. Eli and I worked together on a delicious menu that would fit the theme of the party and be in my price range. I opted for a Southwest Backyard style party. We put a menu together that was enjoyed to the tune of second and third helpings by all. One of the items was a Southwest Pulled Pork that was so tender and juicy our guests kept snacking on it the entire party. We planned the menu and from that point on Eli and staff took over all the shopping, preparing and cooking of the food, setting up the buffet, tables, serving and cleaning up. Talk about the Joy of Cooking - that was it. Prior to the retirement party a co-worker had hired Eli to make some quiches for an Appreciation Breakfast for the staff. The quiches were so tasty and full of local fresh products, I took a business card "just in case", glad I did and you will be glad to when you call Eli at Local Dish.
