I had a terrific experience with JC. Everything from communication to the delivered treats was perfect. The cookies were absolutely delicious, especially the gluten-free ones (I know, right?) I am happy to have found my go-to pastry chef in SF :)

Jacquie is great! She helped me with cooking and hosting an amazing birthday BBQ, with highlights such as grilled corns, bacon wrapped hot dogs and amazing salads. She knows exactly what she is doing and has a very much non-bullit style at work, which I really appreciate. Thank you Thumbtack for finding me such a great chef!

Chef Alejandra recently catered a wine tasting for 40 people for us in SF. Under less than ideal conditions (crowded room, minimal equipment and high guest expectations) she delivered wave after wave of delicious and perfectly paired food. She was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish, and I would recommend her and her team without hesitation. Excellent value!

What I liked about working with Chef Liu was her sincere interest and patience in teaching me, a beginner, to be able to prepare my own good tasting cuisine. When the dishes were finished I felt confident to prepare my own meals for my own family and friends. Her knowledge and skills were great and the results tasted good too.

I hired Chelsea to bake cupcakes and set up for a baby shower I was hosting. Chelsea helped me select the flavor combo for the cupcakes and they turned out delicious! She was on time delivering them and did a fantastic job carrying out my vision for the set up of the shower. She even did the floral arrangements. I strongly recommend Chelsea for catering or events. She's professional, punctual and personable. I plan on hiring her again for my future events.

    No, the chef does not need to provide alcohol

  • Details
    I am looking for someone to come home and prepare dinner (and say additional breakfast/lunch for weekends) say three times a week. Someone who can make food for a couple days at a time (happy to eat frozen food on alternate days). The food should be as healthy as possible. I am not that particular about taste/fanfare -- need something that works and is good. Ideally, someone should do the grocery, and cook food at my home in downtown Palo Alto (I am usually out at work between 9am to 7pm).
