The most important thing about a chef is that the food is tasty. Pete's food was really yummy, well prepared, flavorful, presented beautifully, and crowd pleasing. I love to cook at home and my sign of a good chef is one who makes food that is better than what I make myself. Pete delivered on that for sure. He was also professional, on time, cleaned up, and all the other good stuff. We were a group of 6 adults with 2 infants. Pete fit right into our casual, friendly environment.

We wanted to schedule a cooking lesson as a birthday gift for our 17 year old son, who says he would like to attend culinary school after he receives a PhD in Chemistry, and Chef Rocco was truly a perfect match! Throughout the entire process (interviewing, scheduling, and instructing) Chef Rocco was friendly and attentive, and his calm and organized style set the tone for a very relaxing yet educational session of making pasta (and a sauce, of course!) from scratch. He continuously made sure that each of us had ample time and opportunity to practice every skill that he demonstrated. He provided both specific and practical guidance, and he delivered limited but valuable critique in a very kind, thoughtful, and encouraging way. While he instructed and engaged each of us in making the recipes, Chef Rocco not only tailored the lesson to our son's interest (and our goals for the session) but also treated our son as if he was already on his way to becoming a chef. Whether it is true remains unseen, but Chef Rocco clearly understands the essence and effect of good teaching. As for the homemade fettuccini pasta with fresh vegetable sauce? Magnifico! It was so good that we ordered the pasta attachments for our Kitchen-Aid mixer!

Great food and great experience. The two chefs working our holiday party couldn't have been kinder or more patient. Everyone loved the food, and the boss told me after they left that she would like to bring them back again next year. Thank you for a lovely experience!

This was our first time having a chef for a house party with ~15 guests, and I highly recommend Graceful Kitchen! Chef Grace was able to accommodate our request for vegetarian food, and presented us with several good choices. She was there ahead of time, and the food, esp. the pasta, received good feedback from everyone that attended. I will use Graceful Kitchen again for future events.

I hired Chef Sean to cook a 20-person dinner for my wedding. The entire experience was phenomenal! I have celiac and he was more than accommodating to my diet needs throughout the process. I wanted a special cake for our wedding so we did not get a chance to try his dessert this time around, but he did surprise us by loaning us the cake cutters he used at his own wedding. It was such a thoughtful and special gesture. The entire meal was seamless - Sean and his team were on time, took care of all the food details and clean-up and we never felt rushed between courses. He also offered great wine-pairing suggestions. Our family still raves about this meal and is constantly brainstorming opportunities to hire him again. Thank you Chef Sean for the unforgettable meal and evening!

Daniella did a great job for my family. we had two events a memorial for my mother-in-law and a Thanksgiving meal for the family the following day since we were all in town. From the time we were contacted by Daniella through Thumbtack and started to discuss the events Daniella was very helpful and flexible. We have a couple vegan diets in the family and Daniella came up with wonderful dishes for them, everyone enjoyed. I have no hesitation in recommending Daniella to anyone planning a special event. And just a bit on my background I have over 45 years in the food service field.

i cannot recommend Chef Laura enough. I just hired Laura for a small dinner party for my mother-in-law's birthday and she was phenomenal and her dishes were delicious. This was my first time using a personal chef and Laura made the experience easy and enjoyable from start to finish. I looked at quite a few local chefs when I started thinking about a personal chef option and Laura was hands down the most responsive, helpful and offered the most menu options too. Not only did she prepare 3 amazing courses and a lovely cheese/meat platter, she printed off personalized menus, presented and served each lovely course, filled water and wine glasses throughout the night, cut and served the birthday cake (not to mention lit candles and helped my toddler bring it in to the bday girl) and left my kitchen looking spotless with dishes done and all. Oh and everything she made - including the pasta - was gluten free. Dealing with our party's dietary restrictions was no problem for Laura. It was the most stress-free dinner party I've ever hosted and my guests raved about the food. The portions were also large - such a good value. Having Laura in our kitchen was a joy - she is very nice, easy-going and personable. We will definitely be using Laura again in the future! Our guests were even asking for her contact info. Thank you, chef Laura!

I hired Chef Albert as both nutritionist and chef. Meals are low fat, low carb ... and delicious! I have lost significant weight each week simply because the food is 'untamed', flavorful, fresh, and filling. Albert is not only an incredible chef, he is a great weight loss coach. If you are a foodie who needs to lose weight, this is the only way to go!

Rose Johnson & her entire crew were fantastic! We hired her for a 50th wedding anniversary party that we were hosting in our backyard for about 50x guests. She's great with communication - she was quick to get us a quote, a sample menu, and walk us through what she would need/suggest for the day of the event. She was very flexible, and easily accommodated my mother-in-law's low sodium diet requirement. Most importantly though, her food was wonderful! Her appetizers were plentiful, and the main course & sides were delicious. I was worried about having dried out food (as we were doing a buffet), but the food was cooked perfectly. She kept me on budget, and really, she went above & beyond what I expected from a caterer! Her staff were friendly with the guests, they helped pour drinks, set up chairs, and left my kitchen clean at the end of the night!! I would recommend her to others in a heartbeat!

Angela was very helpful right from the beginning. Once she and I spoke, determined a budget, she proposed some wonderful selections, and the evening was divine. Having a few people who have gluten-free diets, the menu planning was extremely important to me - and every item was gluten free AND delicious! Angela is able to help rent anything you need, so that isn't a worry. She has a wonderful assistant who is warm and friendly. I would highly recommend Angela's business for your catering event.

Chef Lovelace is everything you would hope for in a private chef - incredibly talented, professional, good natured, and easy to work with. The food was delicious - so much depth and texture as well as beautiful plated. His kitchen setup was efficient and left the kitchen spotless. And his menu creations are thoughtful, refined, and well-balanced. Chef Lovelace was gracious enough to customize our meal based on preferences and diet and even suggested wine pairings for each course. Our group of women could not have asked for a better fine-dining experience in the comfort our own home. A much preferred experience than dining in a 5-star restaurant. We highly recommend Chef Lovelace and look forward to using him at our next occasion!

I hired Chef Traci for my mother who was recently diagnosed with diabetes. My mother also has high blood pressure therefore she requires a low sodium diet. Chef Tracy has been awesome. My mother is a picky eater but she absolutely loves Chef Traci's meals. I can't be happier with the meals and her thoughtfulness. She took the time to find out what my mother enjoyed eating and what she would be willing to try. I am enternally grateful and I don't have to worry about my mom having a healthy meal while I'm away working.

We hired Karla for a long weekend of cooking breakfast and dinner for 10-16 people at each meal at our home in Santa Cruz. We didn't know what to expect entirely, but Karla was more than we hoped for. Super nice, very punctual, very honest, gives a good value for the money and most of all Karla is a truly wonderful chef. She can cook anything you can imagine and she does it all well. Our dinners included perfectly cooked New York steaks, lasagna, vegetables, lots of items for carb-conscious folks, etc. Her menus were fantastic and we have a ton of great food. Best of all Karla cleans up. I would give Karla 10 stars on a 5 star chart. Some of the others took pictures of the "spread" Karla created so I don't have those handy to post. Karla is a gem in Santa Cruz and we will be using her in the future. Dave & Lynn and Cindy & John Santa Cruz, CA

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!

We had a fantastic experience hiring John, and I would unreservedly recommend him. I was hosting an 8-person dinner party with a group of international friends at a rental property in Sonoma in mid November. He was very responsive to my fairly vague request on Thumbtack, instantly proposing a delicious-sounding 4 course meal with appetizers that took account of my preference for mostly vegan dishes. He was flexible and easy to work with at a very reasonable price point. He arrived on time with his wife to help, and they cooked, served and cleaned very professionally with a great friendly attitude. I would certainly hire him again.

Chef Eileen was the greatest! This was a first time experience for us, hiring a personal chef for a small group of 8. It was a bachelorette party and the best touch to start an otherwise amazing weekend. Chef Eileen was professional, extremely sweet and most of all our 4 course dinner was delicious! The entire group was happy!! We will certainly do business again in the future and I believe she even gained new clients from our experience. Thank you Chef Eileen!!! All the best, Jenett

Chef Sacha has prepared meals for me on several occasions. Whether a special event or dinner party, he always takes great care to ensure that the ingredients used are in season, and of quality. He is understanding and willing to accommodate any food allergies or aversions, and provides options for those with specialty diets. His twist on French classics creates flavor combinations that are tasteful and surprising, while his take on American bistro fare elevates your childhood favorites. His meals are always delicious, and the presentation impeccable. I highly recommend Chef Sacha for any of your culinary needs.

Marisa has prepared many meals for me which have all been absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Two years ago, she threw a birthday party for me and since I am from the South, she prepared southern foods with a more modern twist in bite-size portions, to name a few cornbread, mac n' cheese, fried green tomatoes, pulled pork sliders and jambalaya. What an amazing chef!
