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!
On December 23, 2015 approximately 40 Earlimart Seniors participated in its annual Christmas Dinner. Chef Albert and his sous chef prepared a delicious and nutricious meal. The seniors were very pleased with the meal as many "mmm's" and "this is gooood" were heard from the people seated at the tables. Chef Albert prepared a very tender roastbeef, so tender it melted in your mouth.He also introduced our seniors to eating kale. Rounding out the meal was a crisp green salad with cranberries and walnuts, mashed potatoes and dessert. The chefs were very gracious with the seniors - talking and mingling with them and even taking pictures. Everyone left with a smile on their face and a delicious meal in their tummy! We are looking forward to our next meal with Chef Albert- who is innovative and still provides a very satisfying meal. Kudos Chef !
Hassan is very responsive to the customer's wishes, he answers texts and phone calls promptly, he is a very hard worker, a pleasant person and an excellent chef. However, there was a snafu with a missing ingredient which he had to run and get, and this put a kink in the flow of the evening. Before he left to the grocery, he put most of the menu out for people to enjoy, but by the time he got back and prepared the final dish, people had put their plates down; they all had to be collected, washed and restocked for use again. For this confusion, there needed to be another person to either run to the store or to collect and wash the dishes so the flow was not so interrupted. I would hire Hassan again.
Great food, great service, great price! Loved all the food Chef Kat provided for our Roaring 20s Party. Everyone was raving about the dishes, especially the homemade canolis! You can tell the ingredients are quality and that extra effort and pride is taken with the cooking. Would recommend her to anyone!
I've had the pleasure of having Debbie cook for my husband and I in our home and highly recommend her as a personal chef. Debbie's cooking is light, healthy and deeply flavorful. She cooks with fresh herbs and vegetables -- easily tailoring a meal to my preferences and what we have available in our pantry. She is meticulous in the kitchen and in the presentation. The final plate looks as fantastic as it tastes.
This was my first time using a personal chef, so I was a bit timid. Chef Kwasi made this an enjoyable experience through enhanced communication and superb professionalism. You can taste the passion in his cooking, his meal surpassed all expectations. His presentation was an art rarely seen. He was well prepared with all needed equipment, and even cleaned up before leaving. I highly recommend Chef Kwasi for any personal or professional cooking needs.
Our daughter wanted a cooking birthday party with a few close friends. Daun did a wonderful job working with them and the party was a hit.
I wanted to create a memorable party for my boyfriend's birthday. I had a few ideas and Chef Mark amped them into a fun, interactive, boisterous cook-along! Everyone had a fabulous time with Chef Mark leading the way. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening - so rare for the hostess - because Chef Mark took care of everything. Much to my surprise, it was actually more cost effective to hire Chef Mark than to do it myself; with his expertise at selecting the menu, doing the shopping and preparing the food, the cost including paying Mark was less than if I had done it all myself. I've already recommended him to friends and hired him for my next party! You can't go wrong with Chef Mark - he's personable, professional and enthusiastic. What a terrific experience!
Chef Jon and family was everything the dr ordered the food was excellent and the customer service was even better.I will be using him for all my catering needs.
I saw DJ Danny J at a good friends wedding. He was so high energy and played all the greatest hits! He interacted with the guests and was so personable. Highly recommend!!
Lizette and Geoff are wonderful, knowledgeable chefs who care deeply about each person's nutritional needs. I feel incredibly lucky to know them!
The event went perfectly. The bacon wrapped pumpkin bites were absolutely incredible with the sherry cream sauce. Would hire again. Thanks, Sterling!
I hired Chelsea to bake cupcakes and set up for a baby shower I was hosting. Chelsea helped me select the flavor combo for the cupcakes and they turned out delicious! She was on time delivering them and did a fantastic job carrying out my vision for the set up of the shower. She even did the floral arrangements. I strongly recommend Chelsea for catering or events. She's professional, punctual and personable. I plan on hiring her again for my future events.
I am a consummate professional who takes great pride in the work I do, and I also derive great pleasure from making your dining experience one you will never forget!!

I put out everything I make as if I am serving it to my mother!
As a chef, I strive to bring a new wave of creativity to the dishes that I prepare. I started out as a Le Cordon Bleu graduate from San Francisco and has recently moved back to the Bay Area from living and working in Atlanta, Georgia for the past year. The development of my creative, artistic mind as given me the advantage of pulling together some of the spectacular dishes that not only look appetizing but taste just as fabulous. My passion pours from within and drives me to continue to evolve as a chef of great caliber.
I'm a private personal chef. I will come to your home or office and cook for you, your family or clients. I'm available nights, weekends, and I will even cook for your holiday meal, birthdays or special occasions, relieving you of any stress! I can cook organically, vegetarian and some vegan, all 3-course meals, ranging in lavish fine dining or simple, but eloquent. I can pre-shop for you or use what you have provided for food and pantry. I will also set the table linens and clean up. I have high standards of excellence and conduct my services in a manner that I would want from a personal chef. My guests love my personal, professional touch and every detail handled. I love to cook and entertain in a manner as if it were my guests. My favorite part is when you take the first bite, and I see heaven in your eyes. My previous privilege's have allowed me to obtain the knowledge & experience to handle my clients trust, respect, with sensitivity to high-profile guests and offer confidentiality for all my guests. I follow my mentor's motto of "perfect will be just fine". I truly believe in this vision with ethic and integrity. I strive for perfection, and I look forward to cooking for you very soon!
