Marcel created a delicious menu based on my preferences to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner to a hungry group of 15. Incredibly professional and friendly, he has a real passion for cooking. He got a round of applause from our group when he left and then we even brought him back last minute to cook an additional meal for us one day because enjoyed it so much. The food is fresh, healthy and flavorful. We will definitely work with him again.

Pam came over and provided us private instruction in our home on basic cooking skills. Pam did a great job. We will be hiring again this next weekend to help us with preparing for Thanksgiving since it will be our first time cooking everything ourselves. I would recommend Pam to anyone looking for cooking instruction.

From the moment Lindsay contacted me with a quote, I was excited to have her cook for a very special birthday celebration. She was thorough, thoughtful, and she easily switched a few things up when I explained that one of our guests had some dietary restrictions. She asked to bring a server to help move the evening along, and I was happy she had the help (and Yvette was an absolute doll). On the day of the party, she was prompt, came incredibly prepared, and not only was course after course unbelievably delicious, but served in and on beautiful dishes (she provided). She and her server were personable, helpful, and by the time we were done eating the beautiful 4 course meal, the entire kitchen was spotless, and she was ready to head out. I will absolutely ask Lindsay to cook for us again, and hope it's not too long before I do so. I cannot recommend her more highly. Book her before some celebrity snatches her up as their personal!!

Claudine is a wonderful person and a great cook. Her food was delicious. In hindsight, for the size of our house and kitchen, I probably would have used someone who was a bit more organized. She was a little late and had to bring lots of things for her food preparation, so dinner was a little late. She is very hands on which is great, I just didn't have the space for it! She and her assistant did a really nice job serving and cleaning everything for me. Claudine is a very hard worker.

I have had the experience of tasting and enjoying Mr. segar's culinary services in many occasions and find him to be an excellent cook. His cooking abilities are very gourmet and he is very good at improvising and coming up with exquisit results.

Francesca was in charge for my Birthday Dinner (September 2015) and it was the most fantastic experience. She arrived way early and prepare our 5 courses meal from scratch which added the pleasure of watching her making all these beautiful and delicious preparations from her native Sardinia (we were 7). She was incredibly professional and kind and left our kitchen impeccable. I absolutely recommend her and can't wait for the next opportunity to have her come and cook for us

Shelly not only makes vegan cooking simple and delicious, she provides the tools and tricks you need to prepare meals for your family! She teaches with love and passion and educates the public about plant-based nutrition and provides the info you need to make the switch from omnivore to vegan or enhance your current vegan lifestyle. I have been vegetarian for 20+ years and vegan for 9 years and I learned so much from Shelly just from one class! I can’t wait to learn more, as she has so much to offer and an entire cook book worth of recipes in her head to impress any chef!

Travis was a joy to work with from start to finish. Not only did he craft a menu that was perfect for the occasion, but he also was composed, engaging, and relaxed the entire time he was cooking for us at the house. He prepared an unbelievable BBQ lunch, a breakfast by request on the fly, and an entire dinner prepped for 12. He was efficient, tidy, dependable, and personable. I will hire him again.

Peggy C. I had tried Heather’s Savory Artichoke Heart, Crispy Sage, Caramelized Onion and Italian Cheese Quiche—and knew it was good; along with her very special (& somewhat decadent) Savory Caramelized Vidalia Onion Cheesecake_Spread, so I ordered both for the holidays. They were made with love and care and brought to my door. I loved having them on hand—as you know there are always more mouths to feed around the holidays! The care and pride she takes in her work really shows. The dip/spread is a real treat—very elegant and rich. The quiche is unlike any we’ve ever had and is truly delicious. I would highly recommend her and her cooking for anyone’s event or home.

Elaine helped my daughter and I with cooking lessons and menu ideas that would work with both of our dietary issues. We spent an afternoon together - through the magic of web cams. We prepared a vegetable lasagna, a spinach and strawberry salad, the most amazing miso soup ever and a squash and edamame treat that was out of this world. The dishes we prepared were made from fresh, organic ingredients that were gluten free, light on salt and most importantly quick and easy to prepare in our busy schedules. Elaine took every culinary and dietary issue of ours and came back with brilliant solutions. Elaine is knowledgeable and approachable with the ability to communicate what she knows without being preachy. I've ordered the Herblends seasonings, and she also has a cookbook. I'm very impressed her knowledge and abilities make great food and show us how she does it.

Had my first at-home lesson today. Michelle is a kind, polite, well-humored chef who teaches well. The meal we prepared together was simply delicious. Didn't know I had it in me but Michelle did! Salivating in anticipation of my next cooking lesson with her next week.

Having had little experience cooking before working with Kim, I didn't know what to expect. But I couldn't be happier with how much I've learned so far. She has taught me to cook really healthy and some of the more indulgent stuff. I've learned specific dishes like homemade gnocchi with pesto and also skills that I can use to cook my own dishes. Knife skills, pan skills and most importantly for me flavor combinations. So even if I'm making a salad or sandwich at home I can take flavor combinations and make them my own. I would recommend her to anyone with any type of food or occasion.

Marukah is an excellent chef. I hired her for a cooking party at my home and not only was the food delicious, but she was very professional and made sure everything was clean while she prepared everything for the meals. All of my guests got to participate in cooking every single course. I highly recommend her services. I have hired her again but this time we are having a children cooking party to teach our kids how they can eat healthy too!

About

My name is Giulia, I was born in Italy and I've just moved to California. My hometown is Napoli, very well know for its traditional recipes and variations of other regional plates. My special dishes are most of all with pasta, especially pasta alla napoletana, carbonara, bolognese, seafood, pasta al forno (in the oven), and all sort of pasta with legumes and vegetables. Moreover, I can teach you how to prepare healthy but really tasty meat or fish dishes, vegetarian and Italian variations of Asian food as light Cantonese rise, noodles with vegetables and curry chicken. I can teach you how to make home made pasta, such as gnocchi and fettuccine, and share with you all the secrets I have learned through family's generations. Also, I can give you advice about the products to use for the real Italian taste! Italian language and culture. I will teach you Italian from the basis (depends on your level) starting from the alphabet and simple sentences. Grammar and conversation go together, because one is fundamental for the other. Other aims are the written and oral comprehension and learning about Italian culture like main historic facts, literature, music, cinema, recent events and cities.
