Very impressive performance! Jarrod did everything he said he would do and then some. His grape juice brine soaked barbecued chicken was heavenly. His ribs were lip-smacking delicious. His quinoa and veggie stuffed spaghetti squash pleased vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. Jarrod is a thoroughly professional chef who deserves to be recognized.

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!

Outstanding service. I hired Brickhouse Catering for my mother's birthday party. The party was for about 20 people and he gave me a great price for the amount of food I requested. What I liked about this was the great variety in the menu that he had. When he first met I was surprised at how many types of cuisine he was able to offer, it was pretty hard choosing what I wanted. With that said, I will definitely hire them again because they offer a great price for great food and you have plenty to choose from. I recommend!

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.

Joan was recommended when our original caterer had an emergency and had to cancel at the last minute. Joan had been cooking meals for an elderly family member of one of my staff and they felt she might be able to fill in. We were a small retirement party of 15 celebrating with an informal cocktail party. Joan was able to create some tasty bites with less than 72 hours notice. I would utilize her skils again if the need arises!,

The Hidden Table can take the hassle and stress out of Sacramento and Tahoe area weddings, dinner parties and dinner time for the busy individual or family with personalized meal services and events. You and the chef will work together to design a menu that fits your needs and lifestyle. The menus are tailored especially for you because special care is taken to note your likes, dislikes, allergies and special diets. Here is what Jason said about the meal services: "I just wanted to let you know that we love the food this week. Don't get me wrong. Every week the food is great, but we are really enjoying the meals this week especially the pork with apricot. We really appreciate your services and just wanted to say thanks! " Chef Russ does catering for parties, weddings, large and small events. Your party or wedding will be attended to, from start to finish. He will prepare the food, serve and cleanup. There's no typical warmed-over catering food here. All the food that we offer are prepared and cooked on-site. The host and guests will be able to fully enjoy the party and not have to worry about anything.

Chef Bill was amazing. He made an incredible steak dinner for me and a small group of my closest friends. He was courteous over the phone, very helpful with creating the menu, and of course the food was top-notch. I thought hiring a private chef would require a ton of planning, but he made it so simple. I would go to him again in a heartbeat!

I have known Aaron for 5 + years. I've watched his career grow and am very impressed with his knowledge, professionalism and excellent people skills (unlike those obnoxious "celebrity chefs" seen on T.V.). Arron has catered holiday meals for my family and is a pleasure to have as part of the celebration. The meals were outstanding ( the family wants to adopt him so he will prepare all our holiday meals). I have also had the opportunity to participate in one of Aaron's cooking classes. I learned things about cooking and preparation that I never imagined. It is amazing what he can do with the simple ingredients found in my kitchen. I strongly recommend taking advantage of Aaron's cooking skills and knowledge. No one will be disappointed; all will be amazed!

I am the quintessential go-to girl. I have experience in wedding planning, catering, personal assistance, and floral arranging, fresh and dried, and I can teach you to do it yourself or be the behind-the-scenes person, ensuring that the event goes on without a flaw. If you need everything perfect for an occasion, I can take the stress off you, so that you can enjoy yourself rather than worry about the details. If you need a menu planner or executive chef to care for your needs, I will get every detail down to the place settings in absolute perfection. Allow me the pleasure of assisting you in your endeavors. Thank you. -Leah Wyeth

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!

I prepare healthy and fulfilling comfort foods that are vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free. I am always testing and researching recipes that people, with allergies/health issues as well as those who do not have allergies/health issues, can enjoy! I can make a vegan sour cream that is commonly mistaken for the dairy counterpart. Are you watching your pocketbook as well as your waistline? I can make a Fettuccine Alfredo that is delicious, and no dairy is used!
