Boris was fantastic to work with! He was very accommodating to all of our requests, patient with our questions, excellent in teaching us how to be better chefs. Having him to come to our house for the private cooking class was one of the most fun evenings we've had in a long time!

We hired Albert for my birthday party to do a progressive dinner. It was spectacular. He is a very engaging person who is passionate about his work. His food is beautiful, like works of art with unique combinations of flavors we had not tasted before. He spent hours prior to arrival slow cooking several dishes. He is not a caterer, he is a master artist personal chef!

Rachel was very professional. She did whatever we asked her to do and more. Rachel took on the challenge to cut up a whole roasted pig. She did a beautiful job and was able to display the meat in a clever way. Rachel is a up and coming chef in this area. Do not hesitate to hire Rachel and her staff for your next party, you won't be sorry.

I was looking for a personal chef for my wife for her birthday. Tim was quick to respond and after looking at his reviews I was comfortable deciding to use his services. Tim is a magician in the kitchen. He provided a menu a few days before and answered any questions I had about the dishes he recommended. The food he puts together is amazing and he's very personable as well. I'd recommend Tim to anyone looking for this type of service. If/when I need a personal chef again, I'll be reaching out to him for sure!

This was my first time using a personal chef, so I was a bit timid. Chef Kwasi made this an enjoyable experience through enhanced communication and superb professionalism. You can taste the passion in his cooking, his meal surpassed all expectations. His presentation was an art rarely seen. He was well prepared with all needed equipment, and even cleaned up before leaving. I highly recommend Chef Kwasi for any personal or professional cooking needs.

It is my pleasure to offer a review of Sylvia's catering, culinary expertise and work ethic. I have enjoyed years of her cooking as she and I were coworkers. In addtion she has catered a couple parties for our family. Sylvia is classically trained so she may provide any food item or method requested. She is also of course very proficient in kitchen safety, equipment, hygiene, prep, timing and temperature requirements. Now for food! Sylvia has a special sense for pairing and encorporating big flavors and complimentary textures. Whether is is fried chicken and mashed potatoes you are after or exotic flavors of the Far East and Carribean Islands, she can provide. Personally I prefer the latter and the spices and flavors Sylvia creates are completely delicious. Some examples include her Chana Alu (curry chick pea and potato), chilie spiced salsas and chutneys, and tangy tomato marinaras. Our family perferes the Caribbean flavors and a recent menu included jerk spiced chicken (and tofu), coconut prawn, chana alu, spicy mango chutney, yougart/ dill chutney, green salad and cilantro/ lime rice. Sylvia graces any atmoshere with exuberance, style, positivity and professionalism. Highly recommened!

    I must admit that I was a bit skeptical about raw foods, BUT Chef Tena *truly* changed my mind (and body). She has an innate talent, not only with recipe creation, and food preparation, but also with making food *beautiful.* I didn't have any real favorites, since they were ALL over-the-top delicious! Her foods make by body SING and feel ALIVE!

    Mark was a hit! Everyone at the party loved his service, he was fun and the drinks were really good. He showed up earlier and only left when our last guest was gone. Before the party he gave us a list of all the stuff we were going to need and even gave us the option to do the shopping for us. He is a professional.

    About

    I am a caterer living in the Sacramento area. My heritage is from the Middle East and Greece, which combined, offers you the "best of both worlds". I learned to cook from the tender age of seven by my mother, who was taught by her mother in Jordan. My Mediterranean blends and flavors of food is what makes me unique. I cook from the heart, which comes through in my culinary cuisines. I aspire to be on "Chopped" one day. My biggest joy in this world is feeding people, especially my family.
