Your Own Kitchen
About this pro
Thomas did a really nice job on our small family reunion dinner. (11 people) He had great ideas for the menu, used quality fresh ingredients that he prepared well. He arrive on time and had everything he needed to get the job done. In addition to being skilled, he was quite personable, interacting nicely with family members aged 12 to 80. He was responsive and communicative throughout the process and we feel we got very good value for the cost. We would highly recommend him.Jun 4, 2018Verified
Thomas came to our house to give my 14-year old daughter and I a private cooking lesson. He brought all the ingredients and did a wonderful job showing us techniques and giving us information on organic vegetables and grass-fed meat. We will be booking him again soon to continue to encourage my daughter to learn how to cook healthy and efficient meals. Thank you, Thomas! We can't wait for our next lesson! ~Cathryn M.Apr 21, 2017Verified
Myself & all my guests were extremely impressed with the service & excellent food. Everything fresh & made on site. Thomas & his assistant were great to work with, & Thomas was so good at replying to email queries & last minute changes leading up to the event. I would recommend 'Yok' (Your own kitchen) in a heartbeat. Looks like some of my guests look forward to using him in the future as well. He also left the place perfectly clean, you wouldn't have known he had been there, except for the satisfied & fully stomachs. Thank you so much Thomas, the event was GREAT.Sep 12, 2016Verified
Food was amazing! Everybody loved it. YOK's menus are exotic. We highly recommend the Turkish one. Thomas and his staff were very professional both in terms of preparation and clean up. When they say Your Own Kitchen", they mean "Own Your Kitchen" :) They used every square inch we had. Of course it was quite a large party (for the size of our kitchen (60 ish). In spite of the crowd being a constant obstruction, he and his crew deftly work their way through the masses skillfully and stealthily. While everything was great we had a couple very very minor shared communication issues. But it wasn't a big deal at all. Thomas is a great guy, loves his work, he's easy to work with, and very fair. We would definitely use him again. Harry & ClaudiaNov 15, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Time. Food cost (menu). Distance to job. Number of people.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I find most of my clients outside Thumbtack but the process is the same: have a conversation about the event (phone/email), set the date, get creative collaborating on a menu, firm up the guest list, finalize cost, enjoy the event.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Formal classes during college and after. 18 months training in Northern California. A decade in Montana learning to cook game meat and other 'Rocky Mountain' fare. Many years in Alaska learning techniques for seafood and smoking meats. As well, I've a variety of close friends that are great cooks/chefs, we experiment and try new elements in cooking all the time (yes, there is a bit of competition on occasion.).
