Sat was our personal chef for a week, several times during the year. The food he prepared was nutritional and yummy. He spent time with us before he prepared the meal to find out our dietary needs and health issues. He gave us suggestions after the week was over to continue our healthy lifestyle and helped us with meal plans and recipes for the future. He is friendly, professional and cares about what we put in our bodies. I would hire him in the future.

Pete was absolutely sensational, from the extraordinarily prompt initial response to the pristine condition in which he left our kitchen last evening. A super-great guy, the food was out-of-control good and all of our guests wanted to have him as their personal chef. We'd hire him again in a millisecond! An all-around fantastic experience!

I didn’t take pictures to show you guys but Cheri did an excellent job on my fiancé’s and my dinner for two. Not only did the food taste great but the set up was very nice. We had no hesitation hiring her for our upcoming June 2019 wedding! She will give you quality food for an affordable price. Not to mention she also has other vendors if your looking to have her company cater your wedding. She puts time and detail into her creations. I definitely recommend her.

Chef Emmaneulla was very accommodating and professional. You can see and taste that she truly takes pride in her dishes. She was very responsive, organized and open to input when planning the menu, always looking for seasonality in her dishes. I had a group of very discerning clients who work with some of the finest restaurants out there. They were impressed and satisfied. Thank you again for the amazing meal!

We had a wonderful time with Chef James. He was so professional and made our dinner experience so memorable. We asked Chef James to let his creative juices flow and surprise us with his recipe (all we asked was that the meals were seasonal and refreshing). He came back with a luau themed meal including: ceviche, apple cabbage salad with ginger sauce, tomato and chard salad, AMAZING tamales, and much, much more. He also brought his own cookware! Thank you for a fun night, chef!

We hired Zachary to teach us how to make pasta. He suggested 3 different kinds of shapes and fillings. He was punctual to our home and came prepared with all the ingredients. The pasta turned out great and it was a fun experience overall. I would recommend anyone to take lessons with Zachary and/or hire him as a personal chef.

Chef James is an artist. Good chefs are. He is also an excellent teacher – in all the best aspects of the word. He explains the foundation of what he is doing. He repeats and demonstrates basic cooking concepts in different ways to make sure ALL of his class catches on. He talks about cooking theory – but reduces it to immediate practice. His lesson about the difference between taste and flavor was perfect (you need to talk with Chef James). More importantly he lets the class do the work and learn. How awesome is that. Oh yes, you and your friends (or family) have fun.

Meg is an amazing chef, and someone I would absolutely recommend! Meg has been the head chef on several outdoor yoga retreats that I have attended, making amazing and flavorful meals with conditions that are less than ideal : o) She has also been my personal chef for the better part of a year, and delights us each week with recipes that fit our needs, nutritional desires, and family dynamic. Meg is friendly and warm, and also exceptionally dedicated to making sure that her recipes and dishes are a good fit for her clients. She prepares food with love and care, and it shows!

Daniella was extremely professional, her food was tasty and it was loaded with veggies. I was nervous beforehand as I have never hired a personal chef before, but Daniella assured me that all would be well. I really appreciated her warm and grounded energy. I also liked that she explained the menu and ingredients to my party. Her staff person was also competent and had good energy too.

Having worked with a few different chefs, with varying results, I can enthusiastically recommend Chet Chase! From start to finish, working with him was a pleasure. Prior to my event, Chet proactively responded to my requests, suggesting options, working with my budget and numbers - and adjusting the menu when my numbers changed. During my event, Chet and his assistants were thorough, on-time, organized, adding an item on the fly, and provided a seamless experience. And something I have not seen from other chefs - clean, stocked with their own cleaning supplies, and left the kitchen as clean as it ever was. I will definitely be using Chet Chase for my next event!

Chef Eileen was the greatest! This was a first time experience for us, hiring a personal chef for a small group of 8. It was a bachelorette party and the best touch to start an otherwise amazing weekend. Chef Eileen was professional, extremely sweet and most of all our 4 course dinner was delicious! The entire group was happy!! We will certainly do business again in the future and I believe she even gained new clients from our experience. Thank you Chef Eileen!!! All the best, Jenett

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.
