Chef Pete communicated well. He was responsive when I contacted him and was open to changing the menu. The meal was prepared by his sous chef, Russ. The food was exactly how I had envisioned and actually exceeded my expectations. I will hire him again when I come to Napa.
Our group of 12 friends gathered in Monterey to celebrate birthdays and were fortunate to have found the perfect solution for our evening meals. Chef Rocco delivered an authentic, exceptional lasagna and beautiful salad of fresh greens for our first evening. The next night we were treated to a lovely plated meal prepared and served by Chef Rocco himself. We all agreed that the zucchini appetizer, Lamb cutlets and colorful roasted vegetables he prepared for us were extraordinary. The presentation and his description of each course made for a truly enjoyable evening. Topped off with the best chocolate mousse we had ever tasted. It had a secret ingredient that made it really special. Chef Rocco is a wonderful chef and a very kind, considerate person. We were all delighted to experience his expertise in the kitchen and enjoy his professional presentations.
We used Cazadores for our Startup Weekend. We reserved three meals: a lunch, and two dinners. The Indian buffet was delicious! It catered our vegan, vegetarian, and omnivore needs! Everyone raved about the Indian food! We also received a Mexican taco dinner. Similarly, Evan and his team grilled the meat and had hot tacos with all the fixings! There was even churros filled with caramel and vanilla custard! Bomb!!! Everyone also enjoyed the Chinese food. It was hard to resist!
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.
Had a Christmas Party for 30 people in my home. Food was prepared on-site. As guests arrived first and caterers second, the kitchen was full of guests nibbling on appetizers. Alisa and her assistant blended right in working around guests. The food was delicious! All guests commented about how wonderful the food was and how pleasant Alisa and her assistant were. Clean-up was provided, and they did a great job at that too. It made enjoying guests and myself fantastic! Planning for the event was seamless, organized and expeditious! When I have another party for my 50th this year, Passionate Plates and Alisa will be on "speed-dial"!
We hired Chef Sean to cook and serve at a dinner party for 8 ppl in our home. Our experience with Chef Sean was fantastic. He was extremely responsive during the menu planning process. He showed up early on the day of the event. He was completely organized, brought printed menus and all of his needed supplies, and the food he prepared was delicious. He was delightful with our guests and extremely professional and friendly with all of the service he provided during the dinner itself. Would definitely work with him again in the future.
I've known Grace for many years. I have been over to her house for home cooked meals that were truly gourmet, and delicious. She also prepared some food and sold it from her home. On the level of catering for large parties, I went to our friend Dave's party last month were Grace did the catering. The food was flawless, delicious, with great presentation, and great variety. I strongly recommend Grace for catering your events.
I've been fortunate to experience both formal and informal meals prepared by Graham. Not only is he a gifted and sophisticated chef with knowledge of foods, wines, and culinary techniques from around the world, but he also has a great ability to craft the perfect setting for a meal. He could fill an empty warehouse with warmth, romance, and a sense of something worth celebrating. Graham is committed to his craft and takes great pride in his work. You will not be disappointed.
Danielle catered for my company for lunch. It was super tasty, but also healthy, which is rare for catered meals. She's dedinitely very passionate and good at what she does!
We hired John to cater our intimate wedding dinner and are so happy we did. John communicated exceptionally well throughout the entire process. We live in another state, so being able to feel comfortable with the chef we hired was a requirement. He had the most reasonable price and provided a menu that met every request we had. The food was simply amazing! We had crab cakes, Caesar salad, filet of beef with a porcini mushroom red wine sauce, garlic mashed potatoes with an artichoke puree (might sound weird, but trust me it was pure heaven!), asparagus, and a brulee cheesecake with a berry coulis. John served us each course and told us about what he had prepared. He had a great sense of humor and even shared his secrets to some of the amazing dishes. He also prepared some quiches for our breakfast the following morning. We all agreed they were the best quiches we had ever eaten. Overall, I give him a 5* plus! If you get the opportunity to hire him, you definitely won't be disappointed. P.S. He also left the kitchen cleaner than when he arrived :)
The Dishes are so flavorful and delicately put together. I can tell a lot of time goes into preparing the dishes. I think what I like most is that all the ingredients are top shelf, and its prepared food that I can not get anywhere else at this level of quality. It's above restraunt standards. Especially impressed by the fact that they can hit the mark on so many dietary specific needs and still make it taste amazing! Get the Asian pear muffins! Or any of her famous baked goods! They will not disappoint.
Sasha did a great job and all of my guests loved the food he prepared.
Lucas did a tremendous job for us. He accommodated last minute changes, dietary restrictions and additional guests. The food was superb. He personally delivered everything on Thanksgiving, quickly organized the meal for us, ensured everything was perfect and then excused himself. We had enough food for three times the number of people and had leftovers that saw us through the entire holiday weekend. All 14 of us heartily thank and recommend Lucas.
They were prompt & professional throughout the engagement. They prepared various appetizers for a party of 25 guests. Great service and food was delicious.
Everything about working with James was outstanding. I hosted a small dinner party for my family. Before the event, James suggested a couple menus based on our preferences. Communication before the dinner was excellent and clear. We all loved the food prepared--an arugula salad, chilean sea bass, and a lemon macaroon pie. He was also a pleasure to have in my house. Friendly, kind, and easygoing. I would definitely hire him again and highly recommend him.
Dan did a great job on a birthday dinner I hosted recently at my home. He showed up on time, prepared and served a delicious meal (the herb rubbed pork loin is incredible), and left my kitchen tidy and clean. I'll definitely be hiring Dan again in the future!
Sophie was prompt in her response and provided excellent service and a beautiful, delicious meal. I would not hesitate to hire Sophie again!
We hired Mark to cater brunch for our wedding, and we were very impressed! He replies in a timely manner to questions, requests, and concerns. From the moment he reached out in response to my project on Thumbtack, Mark worked hard to accommodate our needs. He made sure that we felt good about the menu before we booked him, and had us over for a tasting. Additionally, he noticed an item we didn't originally include on the menu and graciously added it to the meal (potatoes!). Many of our guests made comments to us about how much they enjoyed the food, and everyone (about 130 people) had as much to eat as they wanted with food left over. My only regret was that as the bride I didn't have the chance to eat as much of that AMAZING French toast as I wanted!
Chef Sacha has prepared meals for me on several occasions. Whether a special event or dinner party, he always takes great care to ensure that the ingredients used are in season, and of quality. He is understanding and willing to accommodate any food allergies or aversions, and provides options for those with specialty diets. His twist on French classics creates flavor combinations that are tasteful and surprising, while his take on American bistro fare elevates your childhood favorites. His meals are always delicious, and the presentation impeccable. I highly recommend Chef Sacha for any of your culinary needs.
Jacquie did a wonderful job. She was professional and easy to communicate with throughout the whole process (meal selection, serving, etc.). Most of all, the five course meal she served us was amazing...better than any restaurant! We will definitely use her again.
Ona Paek is a professional chef who prepared for our family an exquisite meal. The meal represented the regional fare of Korea and opened with an excellent kimchi seafood pancake. This was followed by a fresh salmon in a special orange sauce that really enhanced the flavor of the fish. Her talent of fresh healthy cooking and professional presentation made for a delightful home cooked meal. Additionally she is happy to share her passion and experience of food prepared to exacting standards.
