I have had the pleasure of enjoying Francesco's cooking and must comment. Having lived in Italy for a year, I must state that his food was authentic, flavorful, and just as delicious as the food I ate in Italy, if not better. His lasagna and egglant parmigiana are truly to die for.

I hired Haute Productions for a private cooking class for a bachelor party event, and we had the best time. Keith was an awesome teacher and host, he made the experience wonderful. Everyone had a blast and it was the best part of the entire weekend. Not to mention the fact that the food was awesome! I would highly recommend using Haute Productions for any event you may have.

We had a phenomenal Thanksgiving Dinner prepared and delivered by BAPS catering. We were expecting about 20 people for our holiday dinner and BAPS catering delivered a wonderful meal that everyone loved. The turkey was moist, the vegetables, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and pumpkin cheesecake were delicious. Needless to say, we had enough food to satisfy everyone and still had some great Thanksgiving leftovers. We would definitely recommend BAPS catering for everyone who wants tasty food cooked just the way you like. Thanks for helping us make our holiday dinner such a success!

Joan arrived on time and fully prepared to do a cooking lesson for a friend and me to celebrate my friend's birthday. Joan prepared some wonderful dishes that were delightful. We learned all kinds of things.... Knife skills, spice info, stir fry techniques, even info on local stores' organics quality. Joan was open to questions and very knowledgeable. My friend, who is a good cook herself, learned some tips that she says she will incorporate in her cooking. It was a great experience! Thank you, Joan!!!

Kathy did a terrific job of cooking in our tiny kitchen. She was personable, prompt, and patient. We had a fabulous meal of macadamia nut crusted chicken, Caesar salad, sweet potato with caramelized onions and coconut milk, pork wettest wraps, flourless chocolate cak. We learned how to make these things contributed to the meal and enjoyed a delicious meal. Kathy's price was reasonable and extremely fair what she did., I can highly recommend her.

Françoise is the best private chef I ever met in my life. Highly professional and incredibly knowledgeable, food and service have no secrets for her. She does an amazing job accommodating any requests guests may have and she is fast!! I met her at a friend's party and that night talking about her was the food I had in my hands: elegant, refined and tasty. Appetizers and deserts were presented beautifully, and entrées preserved the traditionals south of French flavors. That was an outstanding dinner from any guests point of view. After that night she became my favorite private chef and I wouldn't know how to do without her. She has an invredible background as she letterally travelled the whole world cooking for celebrities and billionaires. Her standards are 5 stars restaurant although her cuisine is beautifully homey and full of love. I highly recommend Françoise for any kind of private events or dinner.

Linda came to our home and showed us how to cook several dishes in a healthy and delicious way. She made the process very fun. It felt like a party. We learned a lot about cooking and eating healthfully and will be able to use that information in our daily food prep. I highly recommend her and am sure you would be happy that you enlisted her services.

Chef Bai changed the way I think, feel and approach the food I eat. What I have learned from her is that I still can enjoy delicious food that I enjoy to cook while having it be really good for myself and my family as well. She even helped us with our special dietary needs including the fact that I must eat gluten free.

We hired Jory for a 20 person office party. Jory's cooking was immaculately presented and so flavorful. We wanted delicious food that was organic, sustainable and healthy—and he delivered. He made Lemon caper chicken, a chickpea tzatziki salad with olives, pesto vegetable medley, homemade granola with yogurt and honey, and charred tomato and kale salad with feta. All served in festive silver platters. On top of the food tasting superb, Jory was a great host and fit in seamlessly with our guests whose questions were answered professionally and in good spirits. Using him again. For sure.

We hired Kari Rich to prepare a special meal in our Point Loma home for a party of nine guests last night. We were so extremely impressed with the food (divine!) and ease of planning that we had to share! Kari is very professional, punctual, organized, easy to communicate with, and most importantly, makes amazing food. She is experienced and has worked locally for years with one of San Diego's most successful chefs/restauranteur. She charged per hour for her time spent shopping, prepping, cooking, and cleaning (in our case it was a total of 4 hrs), plus the cost of food. We highly recommend Chef Kari if you are considering hiring a private chef for a small or large party. She was truly a delight to deal with and everyone LOVED the food she thoughtfully prepared.

    Our (almost teen) daughter has been participating in classes with Ashlee and we've seen a tremendous shift in her. Specifically, Ashlee has inspired her to prepare new healthy foods for herself, she has grown in physical strength through the various exercises that the circles classes offer, and our daughter's heightened self awareness and gratitude are an amazing foundation for the rocky teen years. Thank YOU Ashlee, and Circles Health Coaching for creating an amazing and inspiring space for our youth, for teaching them life skills, and how to find happiness through food, fun and self empowerment!

    Best nutritionist in San Diego for natural and healthy foods, especially if you are thinking of becoming a vegan or vegetarian! Basically, I was a bachelor and I needed guidance for grocery shopping, meal prep and did one of her cooking classes focused on smoothies and juicing - was geared to yogis/athletes (pre and post workouts). I was taken to People's in Ocean Beach for a one hour tour (place is all vegetarian), and I learned the best things to pick out from each isle. She also treated me to a salad in their cafe, and told me what salad bar items pack the best nutrition (I was focusing on slowly eating less meat and just making sure I was getting good protein). My work is hiring her for our corporate wellness program based on her dietician background and nutritionist certification...sweet! She has awesome teas too, they cleanse you out ;)

    About

    I am a cooking instructor. I like teaching people how to cook in order for them to create restaurant-quality meals for themselves or friends and family.

    About

    I am just starting out, as far as going into others' homes to help them with cooking. I felt this was a way to make them feel at home, and make it much easier to teach them the basics of cooking. I do everything from desserts to some French food; and catering is a favourite. Here at Dee's, we know not everyone is a born cook/chef, but we all can learn the basics and have fun making many different types of food and drinks. We just have fun, as we learn together, you will get a great deal out of cooking with Dee (Donna). I love people and cooking, so here at my place, together we shall learn to cook and enjoy life. Make that man or woman in your life never want to leave nor get enough.

    About

    I am providing cooking skill lessons for individuals, families and groups. I specialize in hands-on or demonstration classes. I enjoy guiding students through basic techniques using simple and tasty and recipes. My style is easy and relaxed. After learning basic techniques and a few skills, you will effortlessly prepare delicious meals for your family and friends. All skill levels are welcome. I can take you from where you are to the next level. My goal is to inspire confidence no matter what your level is. I enjoy teaching all levels. For beginner cooks, my mission is to help individuals and families quickly prepare fresh, healthy food without using processed products. I can show you how to ditch that box of mac and cheese, jar of pasta sauce, bottle of ranch dressing and skip the drive through for your own fresh homemade versions. For seasoned cooks, I teach you how to be sure the recipe you are using will work. The truth is that many recipes are not tested before they are printed in that famous chef cookbook and magazine or posted to the internet. Often times, your dish does not turn out because the recipe is poorly written and has nothing to do with your skill. Let me show you how to avoid wasting time and money. I look forward to hearing from you, and am I excited that you want to learn to cook.

    About

    I offer in-home chef services, catering, cooking classes and kitchen design for companies and individuals.
