Chef Evan was the best! He was super responsive and easy to work with when planning my future sister in law’s bachelorette party! He was on time, hilarious to hang out with and the food was incredible. He also cleaned the dishes and packaged the leftovers in Tupperware so we didn’t have to worry about cleanup! Highly recommend Evan - if I’m ever back in the San Diego area, I’ll be looking him up!

We had such a lovely evening thanks to hiring Whisks & Knives! He was very flexible in creating the perfect menu for our group (which included picky kids!), came prepared to dive in, and oh man—the food was DELICIOUS. Super happy we hired him for this special evening, and already recommended him to several friends.

Delicious food and good chat. Can’t go wrong with that! Would definitely recommend this experience with Evan. Having someone cook you a delicious meal is always a win & we really appreciated Evan accommodating the GF and Tree Nut Allergies we had in the group, but still serving up delicious food! We were a group of 12 & had Mexican food; guac, queso, salsa for starters. Green and red sauce enchiladas as main. And churro donut holes for dessert. All yummy! Thank you Evan.

Our experience with Evan with Whisks & Knives was amazing. He is on time as well. His cooking was amazing. He has a charming personality. I would strongly recommend him. Great experience! Sea Bass & filet mignon was the main dish. We had sides as well. Everything was fabulous. We will be hiring him again. Rosario & Scott LB

Evan prepared dinners for my family for 5 nights while we vacationed in San Clemente. He accommodated everyone's like and dislikes including my young children. We added 2 additional guests at the last minute and it was not a problem. The quality of the food was excellent. Communication was excellent. I highly recommend Whisks & Knives.
