Pam came over and provided us private instruction in our home on basic cooking skills. Pam did a great job. We will be hiring again this next weekend to help us with preparing for Thanksgiving since it will be our first time cooking everything ourselves. I would recommend Pam to anyone looking for cooking instruction.

Marukah is an excellent chef. I hired her for a cooking party at my home and not only was the food delicious, but she was very professional and made sure everything was clean while she prepared everything for the meals. All of my guests got to participate in cooking every single course. I highly recommend her services. I have hired her again but this time we are having a children cooking party to teach our kids how they can eat healthy too!

Elaine helped my daughter and I with cooking lessons and menu ideas that would work with both of our dietary issues. We spent an afternoon together - through the magic of web cams. We prepared a vegetable lasagna, a spinach and strawberry salad, the most amazing miso soup ever and a squash and edamame treat that was out of this world. The dishes we prepared were made from fresh, organic ingredients that were gluten free, light on salt and most importantly quick and easy to prepare in our busy schedules. Elaine took every culinary and dietary issue of ours and came back with brilliant solutions. Elaine is knowledgeable and approachable with the ability to communicate what she knows without being preachy. I've ordered the Herblends seasonings, and she also has a cookbook. I'm very impressed her knowledge and abilities make great food and show us how she does it.

Chef Jay is such an amazing warm and kind spirit. Her food is prepared with love, and you can taste it! We have monthly cooking lessons with my son and myself and he LOVES it! Jay takes a fun scientific approach to explaining food, often giving my son the tips and tricks he needs to create all types of cool things like parmesan cheese foam and teaching him how to make rainbow mozzarella cheese for his homemade pizzas - something he found beyond amazing. I enjoy the variety she offers - vegetarian dishes for me and kid-friendly gluten free meals for my son. She has taught me so much about preparing food for my boy that he can safely eat and enjoy without getting bored, and for that I am grateful. If you'd like flavor-filled food and a chef who has the patience of a saint, you'll for sure find that in Jay. Oh yea, ask her to make her amazing fried mac & cheese!

Working with Chef James Buckingham was a blast. He was extremely communicative and flexible with his menu options. My husband and I wanted backyard barbecue for our wedding reception and Oneida’s Cuisine did a wonderful job. Being from North Carolina, I am a little picky about my BBQ but I couldn’t believe how tender and flavorful the ribs and chicken were. Oneida’s clearly put a lot of time and patience into cooking their proteins. Chef James also cooked up some perfect cornbread, potato salad, and macaroni and cheese. The sides could’ve carried the meal on their own! There was also fresh fruit and a delicious hearty salad made for our vegan guests. Our friends and family members were raving about the meal all night. Thank you Chef James!

Peggy C. I had tried Heather’s Savory Artichoke Heart, Crispy Sage, Caramelized Onion and Italian Cheese Quiche—and knew it was good; along with her very special (& somewhat decadent) Savory Caramelized Vidalia Onion Cheesecake_Spread, so I ordered both for the holidays. They were made with love and care and brought to my door. I loved having them on hand—as you know there are always more mouths to feed around the holidays! The care and pride she takes in her work really shows. The dip/spread is a real treat—very elegant and rich. The quiche is unlike any we’ve ever had and is truly delicious. I would highly recommend her and her cooking for anyone’s event or home.

Vegan cooking has never been as fabulous as when Porsche is the one serving up cruelty free dishes. She makes healthy - usually soy free - meals for my boss Russell Simmons and myself on the regular. Our guests always leave our events raving about the taste and marveling at how satisfying it is without flesh and dairy. She is the best of the best!

Francesca was in charge for my Birthday Dinner (September 2015) and it was the most fantastic experience. She arrived way early and prepare our 5 courses meal from scratch which added the pleasure of watching her making all these beautiful and delicious preparations from her native Sardinia (we were 7). She was incredibly professional and kind and left our kitchen impeccable. I absolutely recommend her and can't wait for the next opportunity to have her come and cook for us

    I have had Will's cooking on a numerous of different occasions. And I must say Will has a real talent in the kitchen! He can make almost anything from scratch or make things that you don't think will taste good turn out to taste wonderful! My favorite dish he made was a chicken dish with a load of different seasonings. Every bite I had was so moist and tasty (in a good way)! I would highly recommend to try Will's cooking, at least once, you would not be sorry and definitely be pleasantly surprised with how flavorful his dishes taste. :)

    Having had little experience cooking before working with Kim, I didn't know what to expect. But I couldn't be happier with how much I've learned so far. She has taught me to cook really healthy and some of the more indulgent stuff. I've learned specific dishes like homemade gnocchi with pesto and also skills that I can use to cook my own dishes. Knife skills, pan skills and most importantly for me flavor combinations. So even if I'm making a salad or sandwich at home I can take flavor combinations and make them my own. I would recommend her to anyone with any type of food or occasion.

    I cooked for over 25 years at Southwestern Academy. I am looking for a rewarding and challenging position that will effectively utilize my acquired expertise and commitment to excellence.

    About

    I grew up cooking with my Italian mother and have had a passion for it ever since. I have been cooking professionally for over 20 years in restaurants as well as private homes. I use the freshest ingredients possible and shopping at farmers markets and local markets. I will create great tasting, fresh and wonderful food for you to enjoy.

    About

    I have 30 years of experience cooking and baking. I have a lot of original recipes that I am constantly asked for. My mother was a home economic teacher, so I learned very young.

    About

    My name is Giulia, I was born in Italy and I've just moved to California. My hometown is Napoli, very well know for its traditional recipes and variations of other regional plates. My special dishes are most of all with pasta, especially pasta alla napoletana, carbonara, bolognese, seafood, pasta al forno (in the oven), and all sort of pasta with legumes and vegetables. Moreover, I can teach you how to prepare healthy but really tasty meat or fish dishes, vegetarian and Italian variations of Asian food as light Cantonese rise, noodles with vegetables and curry chicken. I can teach you how to make home made pasta, such as gnocchi and fettuccine, and share with you all the secrets I have learned through family's generations. Also, I can give you advice about the products to use for the real Italian taste! Italian language and culture. I will teach you Italian from the basis (depends on your level) starting from the alphabet and simple sentences. Grammar and conversation go together, because one is fundamental for the other. Other aims are the written and oral comprehension and learning about Italian culture like main historic facts, literature, music, cinema, recent events and cities.
