"He’s a seasoned Chef who is intensely passionate about what he does. With his background, I wondered why someone like him would even bother to cook for us but he did. Even before our event he stayed in contact texting me photos of the mouth watering dishes he would serve. He was always friendly, upbeat, and enthusiastic. He made us feel like our event was important to him. Then when the day came, he showed up early to prepare and graciously accommodated some last minute guests. He was as friendly and passionate about food as he seemed over the phone. Our guests showed up and we ended up having the best dinner party that we have ever hosted. It was an amazing and wonderful evening with delicious dishes at an incomparable quality and presentation. The steak was so soft that you really could cut it with a butter knife. Everything was brightly colored, beautiful, and fresh. As we progressed through each dish, I could see the smile and joy coming to our guests faces. Our conversations unfolded easily and lightheartedly. It was so great that I was able to fully enjoy our guests and not have to worry about cooking and serving. And the stellar food made our guests feel good. When Chef Akahoshi was done he left with our kitchen more spotless than we he arrived. And in the afterglow of the wonderful food, our guests stayed to talk late into the evening. Some said they could eat the whole meal all over again. I am so thankful to Chef Akahoshi for coming into our home and sharing his talent, passion and wonderful personality with us. And most of all for allowing us to give some of our beloved family and friends a memorable evening that we will all always remember as an expression of our gratitude and love."

"Initially I was concerned about travel time from Monrovia to my home in the Larchmont area of Los Angeles, but Tonya (owner-chef) assured me she would allow for all eventualities and be there with plenty of time to set up and be ready before the guests arrived. The menu was mimosas, orange juice, lox, bagel & cream cheese (with the usual trimmings), vegetarian omelets, pancakes, cut fruit, and sour cream coffee cake, coffee and tea. Everything turned out perfect! Tonya and her assistant, Chris, were at my house early, got set up and were ready to go before the guests started arriving. The food was wonderful. The on-the-spot food, pancakes and omelets, were outstanding; and Tonya’s sour cream coffee cake was a BIG hit. The guests loved everything. The only glitch was an under estimation of how much lox, bagels and cream cheese the guests would consume. Fortunately, I had anticipated that could happen and had an extra 60 ounces of lox on hand and an extra pint of cream cheese, and we have two bagel shops within walking distance. Tonya was great to work with and having her cater made my life so much easier. It was a beautiful brunch, within my budget, and I am thankful that I took the chance on hiring her company as I had relied solely on the Thumbtack reviews when I made the choice. I’ll definitely use Sierra Catering again. The only suggestion I might make is that more attention be paid to the serving dishes used. Mixing bowls really aren’t attractive bowls to put on the buffet table."
