I hired Chef Rocco to give my 17 and 18 year old nieces a cooking lesson. He was informative, fun and interactive. The dishes we made were delicious and easy. He showed us proper knife skills and good kitchen organization. I would definitely recommend Chef Rocco for cooking lessons or as a private chef for your next party!
Chef Sat did a spectacular job for my girlfriend's birthday party! I had two previous chefs flake out on me, the first being completely unresponsive, and the second not answering a request for a quote and then going completely over budget. Sat stepped in with only a few days to organize, and was more professional and invested in the event than I could have hoped for. Sat listened carefully as I rambled about which ingredients I was hoping to include on the menu, and provided great feedback about what would be in season, what we would be able to find with good quality, and how we could break from a traditional menu in order to squeeze in as much variety as possible. He patiently revised his menu 4-5 times for me to address every detail I could throw at him - and, remember, this was all with under a week to plan the event. Sat also helped me rent dishware, and was very transparent about what would be needed, and what things would cost - this was a huge time saver. At the party, Sat was charismatic and charming. He thoroughly cleaned the entire kitchen and packaged all our leftovers while we ate. He fielded our questions about his background, cooking techniques, sourcing tools and ingredients. The Bottom line, I would hire Sat again in a heartbeat. Thanks for the wonderful evening!
Alisa is very professional. Her food was very delicious and everyone enjoyed her cooking. On Nov 9, 2014 our non profit outreach organization held a fund raising event. Everyone told me her food was out of this world. I highly recommend Alisa's services. Alisa is amongst the best around the Bay Area. My husband Garth, myself and our volunteers enjoyed Alisa and her tasty dishes.
This review is LONG overdue! My wife and I do not buy each other gifts for traditional holidays, we enjoying giving each other experiences! That said... for Valentine's Day this year instead of going out to dinner, my wife surprised me by booking Grace to come and cook for us, in our own home, in our pajamas! Grace was so incredibly professional, her meals were outstanding, and she provided my wife several options to choose from, and she knocked each dish out of the park. She even put the leftovers into our own Tupperware, and did not rush us during each course. My wife and I love to cook ourselves as well as explore new restaurants in the foodie capital of SF... and we both agreed we would rather have Grace cook for us than experience Michelin star restaurants - she is the real deal! Cannot wait to book our next experience with Grace :)
Very professional. Made us all relax and enjoy his great cooking!
Daniella Bensimons' food is like music that you can eat. Her food is delectable, delicious and is farm-to-table fresh. I've yet to meet someone eating her food at a party that doesn't like it. 5 star cuisine from one of the best Chefs in the East Bay
Angela is AMAZING! Her cooking made me forget that I once enjoyed meat, and I never wanted to look back. I would recommend Angela and GCD to anyone, and everyone.
Zach was excellent! We had a total of 6 private cooking lessons over the course of 4 months. Each time he came to our house for a couple hours as we created a wide variety of my favorite dishes from local restaurants in Sonoma. He taught us ways to modify a meal so you could have more variety with the same dish by just changing a few spices or ingredients, what to look for to know you're on the right track or how to "save a dish" if you veer off, and different techniques that were really useful. I'd highly recommend him!
After many events at ITK for numerous organizations I am part of, it's my pleasure to share how wonderful each has been. I have held, make your own, learn a lesson or come watch cooking event's. Each has been a huge success and everyone wants to come back! If you are thinking of working an Event there, you won't be disappointed!
I took 2 private lessons with Chef Veena. And I learnt a lot and was totally amazed at her knowledge and her passion. I was taught exactly how to do prep work, then actual cooking and also tips to make the recipe and I was sent home with the dish I cooked with recipe booklet and assurance that she is always available to answer any queries/doubts I may have after trying it out at home. Tried I did and emailed her too for totally different dish that I did not learn from her. But she generously answered my queries. If you want to learn age old grandma recipes that tastes divine, then Chef Veena has those secrets... Meena
We hired Jessica to come and cook for us for my intimate bridal shower this year (about 20 people) and she knocked it out of the park! Not only was she a pleasure to work with, but she made us a delicious and healthy spread with lots of options for everyone's tastes and dietary preferences. She worked with me to come up with a perfect menu and I still dream of the carnitas she made that day! We even ended up getting a mini cooking lesson from Jessica - because everyone was so interested in what she made, she took the time to explain everything and my guests couldn't stop chatting with her! She's so engaging and clearly passionate about what she does, I'd recommend her for any event and for cooking lessons too!
Thanks to one of my colleagues who introduced Anita to me. She has been a true blessing to my kitchen and culinary skills. Apart from being an expert chef she is an amazing teacher. She has been mentoring me for for about 6 months now and the dishes I make under her guidance have always fetched me rave reviews of the superlative degree. She shares some of her great culinary secrets and techniques with me and follows through very patiently. She is very professional, takes my needs into consideration and devises each class with lots of enthusiasm and fervor. She is always punctual and has a very pleasing demeanor. She taught me to cook some mind blowing dishes in my very own kitchen :) thanks Anita from coming all the way to teach me. You have been a great source of inspiration to me.
We had a wonderful time receiving cooking lessons from Shelley. She was super knowledgeable, friendly, prepared, responsive, and worked with us to make sure we got the most out of the experience. Thanks Shelley!
