I hired Haute Productions for a private cooking class for a bachelor party event, and we had the best time. Keith was an awesome teacher and host, he made the experience wonderful. Everyone had a blast and it was the best part of the entire weekend. Not to mention the fact that the food was awesome! I would highly recommend using Haute Productions for any event you may have.

Dave the caterer really knows how to cook! During our first tasting we meet at a park and didn't really know what to expect but as he brought out our Mexican menu, he would make sure to give us our space and plenty of time to try the food! And seriously he makes the best refried beans ever!!! During the wedding he was on time and brought all of the tables, linens and supplies! He was professional and very helpful during cleanup! I would definitely recommend his services! :)

We had a phenomenal Thanksgiving Dinner prepared and delivered by BAPS catering. We were expecting about 20 people for our holiday dinner and BAPS catering delivered a wonderful meal that everyone loved. The turkey was moist, the vegetables, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and pumpkin cheesecake were delicious. Needless to say, we had enough food to satisfy everyone and still had some great Thanksgiving leftovers. We would definitely recommend BAPS catering for everyone who wants tasty food cooked just the way you like. Thanks for helping us make our holiday dinner such a success!

Chef Bai changed the way I think, feel and approach the food I eat. What I have learned from her is that I still can enjoy delicious food that I enjoy to cook while having it be really good for myself and my family as well. She even helped us with our special dietary needs including the fact that I must eat gluten free.

Cuisine a la Carte Catering - Harry Heyligers, is the BEST caterer!! Not only is he an excellent chef with experience preparing healthy and delicious dishes in a wide range of cuisines and styles, his presentation and attention to detail equals that of a 5 star restaurant. He has always accurately calculated the amount of food to prepare for my occasions, both large and small, while staying within my budget. Harry is a delightfully nuturing soul who prepares all of his dishes with a dash of love. Consider yourself lucky to have found this rare gem of a chef!

Linda came to our home and showed us how to cook several dishes in a healthy and delicious way. She made the process very fun. It felt like a party. We learned a lot about cooking and eating healthfully and will be able to use that information in our daily food prep. I highly recommend her and am sure you would be happy that you enlisted her services.

It just doesn't get better salads, sandwiches, lunch entrées that taste great and are healthy at the same time. Every meal choice you make lends to chef L's passion for organic food and his mastery in cooking it. Impatiently waiting for my next meal. Try it, you will like it!!!

We hired Jory for a 20 person office party. Jory's cooking was immaculately presented and so flavorful. We wanted delicious food that was organic, sustainable and healthy—and he delivered. He made Lemon caper chicken, a chickpea tzatziki salad with olives, pesto vegetable medley, homemade granola with yogurt and honey, and charred tomato and kale salad with feta. All served in festive silver platters. On top of the food tasting superb, Jory was a great host and fit in seamlessly with our guests whose questions were answered professionally and in good spirits. Using him again. For sure.

We arrived at the Fishbone Kitchen where Chef Bear is the executive chef and were immediately served many nice dishes of fresh ceviche while we waited for our class. Once in the kitchen, we learned many cool techniques for knife skills and other techniques like oyster shucking and removing the skin from a salmon without using a knife! Chef Bear was informative and hospitable. The only reason I am removing a star is because the kitchen we were in was very small (he did have a larger kitchen for us but the location fell through at the last moment) and took away from the experience for some of the participants due to it being difficult to see or hear -- positioning and noise level was a culprit. But all in all it was a very cool experience at a very reasonable rate. Chef Bear did everything he could to customize the class for us according to our interests, needs and experience levels. I would recommend him.

You can upgrade it by adding fresh naan bread, chicken skewers, samosa and other great selections of appetizers we have. It's a delicious and unique catering guaranteed!

I am just starting out, as far as going into others' homes to help them with cooking. I felt this was a way to make them feel at home, and make it much easier to teach them the basics of cooking. I do everything from desserts to some French food; and catering is a favourite. Here at Dee's, we know not everyone is a born cook/chef, but we all can learn the basics and have fun making many different types of food and drinks. We just have fun, as we learn together, you will get a great deal out of cooking with Dee (Donna). I love people and cooking, so here at my place, together we shall learn to cook and enjoy life. Make that man or woman in your life never want to leave nor get enough.

I am providing cooking skill lessons for individuals, families and groups. I specialize in hands-on or demonstration classes. I enjoy guiding students through basic techniques using simple and tasty and recipes. My style is easy and relaxed. After learning basic techniques and a few skills, you will effortlessly prepare delicious meals for your family and friends. All skill levels are welcome. I can take you from where you are to the next level. My goal is to inspire confidence no matter what your level is. I enjoy teaching all levels. For beginner cooks, my mission is to help individuals and families quickly prepare fresh, healthy food without using processed products. I can show you how to ditch that box of mac and cheese, jar of pasta sauce, bottle of ranch dressing and skip the drive through for your own fresh homemade versions. For seasoned cooks, I teach you how to be sure the recipe you are using will work. The truth is that many recipes are not tested before they are printed in that famous chef cookbook and magazine or posted to the internet. Often times, your dish does not turn out because the recipe is poorly written and has nothing to do with your skill. Let me show you how to avoid wasting time and money. I look forward to hearing from you, and am I excited that you want to learn to cook.
