He contacted me immediately. We are going to do cooking classes in February. We've spoken on the phone and he is so friendly. He has stayed in touch with me and he deserves 10 stars!!!!

Our family was looking for a chef to prepare weekly dinners. We were new to this and Sat was extremely helpful, flexible, and collaborative. He has prepared meals for us twice and were so pleased that he now comes regularly. He works with us to design a weekly menu to suit our family's needs and understands our particular eating habits. It had become challenging to juggle work, activities and cooking, and we grew tired of eating out. This service has allowed us to reduce the amount of stress in planning and preparing meals and decrease worry about eating healthy. We can now enjoy precious time with our children with a delicious home cooked meal.

Jon, and his assistant Danny, catered a sit down dinner for 24. The menu included several appetizers, salad, Filet Mignon and lobster with fingerling potatoes and veggies, and a homemade raspberry filled buttercream cake (as requested) for my husbands 70th birthday. Everything was perfect!!!!!! Exceeded our expectations. Not only was everything amazing but Jon and Danny couldn’t have been any nicer. Several of my guests are already arranging to use them for their upcoming events. We would definitely use them again. They made my husbands 70th so special. Could t be happier.

*I have now taken two Indian cooking classes from Meenu Bhasin. In the first cooking class she made chicken korma, lentils and a yogurt side dish. These dishes were about a medium level of difficulty to prepare. Meenu was very thorough in explaining and showing each step of the cooking process. She also included a list of all the ingredients and spices, and where to purchase them. In the second class we made chicken tikka masala, saag paneer and rice with vegetables. Meenu is very good at teaching the preparation and cooking process of each dish. She goes over the ingredients and the entire process very carefully. She also leaves plenty of time for questions and discussion. I really enjoyed taking her classes and learned a lot about Indian cooking. I strongly recommend her as a cooking teacher/chef.*

My wife and I had a fantastic private cooking class with Teena. The recipes were delicious, and Teena is an amazing teacher. We strongly recommend taking classes with Teena, and will likely do so again.

Elizabeth cooked for my family of four during a difficult time and she really listened to our needs and took a lot of pressure off me with her delicious meals. I highly recommend Elizabeth for all your private cooking needs.

I gave my adult daughter, Jenny, a cooking class with Cindy as a birthday gift. Cindy was flexible and able to find a time that fit Jenny's tight schedule. She talked to my daughter the week before the class to understand her skill level and what she wanted to get out of the time together. She customized the lesson to Jenny's request for what to learn (more interesting vegetable preparation and some vegetarian dishes). Cindy was extremely well prepared on day of class with all the ingredients purchased and the kitchen set up appropriately. Jenny enjoyed the lesson and made three full dishes and learned a sauce that will be extremely useful for many dishes. Jenny said the class would have been more useful if she (Jenny) had been better able to articulate what she wanted to learn and describe her skill level better. Our one suggestion for how to improve the experience is to have a fixed fee for ingredients ($40-50) that is on top of the class fee instead of line item detail and recording costs for each ingredient used as it was used. The line item detailing was tedious, wasn't known in advance, and made Jenny feel she needed to decide if each spice and oil was worth the cost. Also, there were no containers available to take home the prepared food at end of class unless an extra fee was paid. We suggest including the cost of containers in the supply fee. (Cindy did let Jenny borrow mason jars which we returned later- so it worked out. ) All in all it was a fun and worthwhile experience and a creative gift for an adult. We would go back to Cindy again for another class.

I contacted Veena to see if I could arrange a private cooking class for my Mom as a Mother's day gift. I asked whether she could accommodate me (a vegetarian) and my mom (passionate meat eater) and Veena said absolutely. I sent Veena a handful of my Mom's favorite recipes (including a more obscure and apparently heavily British dish called Lamb Pasanda) and she created a meal plan that included everything and more. We showed up and Veena greeted us warmly. Her kind energy and passion for her food and culture were clear. She never made us feel like we were asking silly questions and kept the experience light and fun. She was basically willing to go into as much detail or as little detail as we wanted. It was a very affordable class considering it was a 3 hour long private sessions for the two of us. We even went home with tons of leftovers, a spice kit (black cardamom smells amazing), and recipes for our dishes! Veena took pictures of our experience and offered her help for any future cooking questions we had. She said she could always offer a suggestion for a substitution (ex. if we needed a dairy free version) or questions on grocery stores to find certain ingredients. Thank you Veena!!! Quick summary PROS: very adaptable, super warm and kind energy, affordable, fun, not intimidating, yummy food. CONS: scheduling was a little difficult because there was no calendar or online service to use. It was through email so we did have some communication mishaps initially—no big deal really.

Anita is knowledgeable and explains clearly any cooking steps. Its a pleasure to cook as she teaches and one gains a secure understanding of the recipe since she allows for the student their own thinking space and doesn't "hold your hand" too much.

Ulrike's bread baking workshop was excellent. I was always curious about sourdough and she provided not only an excellent introduction to baking bread but provided a sourdough starter and all the tips and tricks to do it in my own kitchen. I learned so much more than I ever could have reading a recipe or watching a cooking video. I highly recommend her class to anyone, including baking novices like myself.

Please bear with my effusive review, but our party was last weekend, and I'm still smiling about the experience. Trifecta catered my wife's 40th birthday party, a sit-down dinner in a private home with 33 guests. Our experience with Trifecta was absolutely amazing and I can't recommend them highly enough. The food was incredible. Super fresh (the octopus tentacles were still moving on the cutting board...seriously!), really tasty, and totally unique (my personal favorites were the octopus croquettes and Hamachi tacos!). Lai, Ryan, and Vicky were chill, friendly, accommodating, resourceful (the onsite kitchen was a little tight), and just really cool, fun people who radiate a genuine passion for their craft. They're badass, talented chefs who are also really nice people . . . that's a rare combo. I can't wait to throw a party with them again.

We use Vanna's catering service every Wed @Greylock VC. Her staff is always on time, presentation is always great, the food and freshness is always high quality. Needless to say the flavors and taste is just something you can't get at a restaurant! It's the only day of the week that our lunchroom has a line because it's such a big treat to have Vanna's cooking for lunch!

Chef was super helpful with my knife skills and patient with me throughout the whole class. She was able to come to my house for a private cooking class for 4 and we had a personal menu. The event was so fun! Definitely would like to try this again!
