Stephanie did a wonderful job with a special order cake. She was prompt, professional - and makes a wonderful dessert. I would hire her again in a second. You should, too.

This is my first time working with Gaby. I was taking a risk as the cake I ordered was for a dinner party for 12 adult, half of whom are amazing home chefs and two are professionally trained chefs. A friend got a job at Google and so, to surprise him, I ordered this cake (pics) for the party. Gaby was easy AND pleasant to communicate with. She made me a coconut pineapple flavored cake with rainbow layered inside to match the google colors. The crowd, 12 adults and 11 kids went crazy with how beautiful the cake was. Lots and lots of photos later, we finally got to taste it and suddenly the room got quiet. everyone kept shaking their heads with their eyes closed. The cake was so delicious, there was no sound for like 30 seconds. Gaby, I will be hiring you again and again. My friends asked for your contact info. Thank you for such an amazing cake that more than pleased my chef friends and the kids!

Jacquie was everything I could have asked for in a home chef: super organized and efficient in the kitchen, creative, talented, fun to work with, and respectful of our space and time. The food was delicious! I would hire her again and/or recommend her to a friend in a heartbeat.

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!

Chef Faye just helped cater my non-profit's annual fundraiser. She did an amazing job making it family friendly and delicious. From the beginning she was helpful and accommodating to our organizations needs and as we were all new to hiring caterers she was gracious in asking the right questions and was just on top of everything. It took a few months for us to plan out all the logistics, but she was patient and so helpful! I would definitely recommend Chef Faye for any of your future parities!

    This would be a gift for my 80 yo mother and my brother who is her caretaker. It would actually be best if the meal could be prepared off site and then just delivered (it's fine if it might need warmed, as long as there's no more prep required than that). I'd just like to give her a nice quality meal experience. The date selected below is not firm, I'm really very open, would like it sometime over the holidays.
