I have had the pleasure of enjoying Francesco's cooking and must comment. Having lived in Italy for a year, I must state that his food was authentic, flavorful, and just as delicious as the food I ate in Italy, if not better. His lasagna and egglant parmigiana are truly to die for.
Catered a taco party for my husbands birthday and pool party. Last approx 2 1/2 hours maybe a little longer than that. Rafael arrived on time and set up everything and started cooking for our guest and ourselves. We were very impressed with the food as well as our guests were too. Everyone LOVED how the food was cooked and even the tortilla's. They loved that they could watch them being cooked. Rafael was so friendly and professional and it showed in his personality and how he takes pride in what he does. He wants everyone to be happy with his work and his food and I will say that he surpassed our expectations and with that said, we just hired him again for our summer party again in July. Everyone was asking and requesting that we have him come back to us. I know the drive can be long to get here and we cannot say enough about how we really appreciate that he comes out to our home. Thank you so much Rafael!!!! Can't wait to see you and eat your awesome food again in July!!! :)
Stacy made a great dinner for our dinner party. I haven't ever done this before, I always cook myself. It was a fun treat to enjoy with my guests vs. being in the kitchen cooking. Not something I can afford to do often, but definitely fun to try! Thank you!
Phenomenal experience! What impressed me the most is how well she works people of all ages especially kids, large family groups and any events. She really captures the best of who or what she sees through the lens. Looking at her finished work WOWed me! Maria made my family, nieces/nephews and myself feel comfortable and beautiful. Her photos speak for themselves. Never a dull session because its always fun with her. Photography is her nitch! I would definately referring her services to everyone. A+++
Chris is simply amazing. An amazing chef and an amazing instructor. We learned so much from him. I would highly recommend him for any event or cooking class.
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! :)
Chef Joan was absolutely wonderful! She was so friendly and happy, it was clear she loved her job and loved sharing it with us. She cooked for my boyfriend and I at our home on Valentine's weekend, it was the first time we had ever tried a personal chef. We both love eating out and cooking at home - basically we love food, and we wanted to try something different. This experience was especially great because she shared so many tips and tricks with us - I have been trying new things in the kitchen ever since! It was also great that she shared our values in making a gluten-free, low carb meal. Joan started out with pork belly (melt-in-your mouth amazing - thank goodness she made enough for leftovers!) then moved on to one of the best porkchops ever created. The side dish was buttery mashed cauliflower, but made with a few special ingredients that turned into something out of this world (I don't want to give away the secrets!) It was just like a side of creamy mashed potatoes, but better. To top it off, she brought over a whole tupperware of moist, GF chocolate cookies for us to keep! She used them in the dessert, which was heavenly. Over all, I wish I could give chef Joan 10 out of 5 stars!
Anne came over on a Friday night and lead a great and healthy in home cooking class. She is a great teacher and helped us make a healthy four course menu. The food and experience could not have been better.
Françoise is the best private chef I ever met in my life. Highly professional and incredibly knowledgeable, food and service have no secrets for her. She does an amazing job accommodating any requests guests may have and she is fast!! I met her at a friend's party and that night talking about her was the food I had in my hands: elegant, refined and tasty. Appetizers and deserts were presented beautifully, and entrées preserved the traditionals south of French flavors. That was an outstanding dinner from any guests point of view. After that night she became my favorite private chef and I wouldn't know how to do without her. She has an invredible background as she letterally travelled the whole world cooking for celebrities and billionaires. Her standards are 5 stars restaurant although her cuisine is beautifully homey and full of love. I highly recommend Françoise for any kind of private events or dinner.
Now We're Cooking has catered a birthday party at my home for 20 guests. The Mediterranean style food that I requested was absolutely delicious. Peach and shrimp crostini and artichoke stuffed mushrooms were especially good. So were the main courses: baked salmon and grilled chicken with dill yogurt. The chef Steven was very easy and pleasant to deal with. Highly recommend.
Harry provided catering services for a reunion group of approximately 250 people at a beach / park location in La Jolla. The food was terrific, providing a "buffet style" meal with five varied food stations. Harry worked closely with our group to arrange a delicious meal, staying within our budget. He served a tasty assortment of food for every guest's palate with a gorgeous presentation. The food was the talk of the event! Harry's advice and suggestions were invaluable supporting our successful event. I would not hesitate to recommend Harry for any meal service, large or small, to provide a professional, timely and memorable gathering with a gourmet touch.
I loved my interactive, online cooking class with Chef Patsy! Before I get started, I must say I was extremely impressed with the integrated video conferencing service that Trainasium uses for their online class offerings. The connection was amazing and my screen didn't freeze once during the class. Just a side note for anyone not sure about interactive online cooking classes. I have never made a pie from scratch before and Chef Patsy took us step by step on how to prepare the pie dough and the filling. She gave each and every one of us a warm greetings as we entered the online class. I loved the fact that we could ask Chef Patsy questions during class and have her take a look at our mixture if we were not sure about something. It was like having Chef Patsy in my own kitchen. It was the cooking lesson without the headache. While waiting for the pie to finish cooking, Chef Patsy amazed us with various ways to use left over pie dough and different pie decorating techniques. It was so amazing to be able to celebrate with Chef Patsy and the other students once our pie was finished. My sense of accomplishment was through the roof at that point. The cost of the cooking class was way less than going to a traditional cooking class and I loved the fact that I was in my kitchen which made me so much more confident while attempting this creation. The part I loved the most about this interactive online cooking lesson was that I was able to do it with my sister-in-law! I loved being able to see Chef Patsy and all of the other students that live in different places right from my Laptop. I will definitely be taking more online cooking lessons with Chef Patsy.
Christina Johnson is extremely talented! As a foodie I have very high standards and she always exceeds expectations. Christina is very creative and is passionate about cooking and entertaining. I have attended her cooking classes, formal dinners, and parties. She is great to work with and I always come away having tried something unique or learned a great new skill.
We hired Brian to cook for a group of 22 for our friends 30th B'day party. Leading up to the event, communication was fantastic - Brian was responsive, communicative, and flexible with regard to logistics, menu selection, etc. He was happy to accommodate our requests, but able to offer informed, thoughtful recommendations in areas where we deferred to him, which we really appreciated since this was our first time hiring a chef for an event. During the party Brian and his assistant were efficient and competent - everything ran ahead-of-schedule, and the food was fantastic! All our guests have asked for his card to hire him for their special events, and we look forward to having Brian cook for us again!
I took a cooking class with Gregorio Serafini and it was AWESOME! We made lots of different things and he also let us sample. Not only did we learn to cook, but we also learned about the history of the things we cooked. A definite blast! Can't wait to do it again! :)
Kat has catered many of my events for small and large groups of people over the past years. She was always prompt and professional. She served various types of meals to my guests and all tasted and appeared upscale and individually prepared. She was also very flexible and accommodating in meeting the special food needs of my guests. I am looking forward to have Kat cater more special events for me including smaller dinner parties.
Best nutritionist in San Diego for natural and healthy foods, especially if you are thinking of becoming a vegan or vegetarian! Basically, I was a bachelor and I needed guidance for grocery shopping, meal prep and did one of her cooking classes focused on smoothies and juicing - was geared to yogis/athletes (pre and post workouts). I was taken to People's in Ocean Beach for a one hour tour (place is all vegetarian), and I learned the best things to pick out from each isle. She also treated me to a salad in their cafe, and told me what salad bar items pack the best nutrition (I was focusing on slowly eating less meat and just making sure I was getting good protein). My work is hiring her for our corporate wellness program based on her dietician background and nutritionist certification...sweet! She has awesome teas too, they cleanse you out ;)
We hired Gabriel as a private chef for a party at our home & were so impressed! The dishes were delicious & our guests raved about the dinner for weeks! Gabriel is very professional & took care of everything so that we were able to just enjoy the evening with our guests. We also found out that Gabriel is an opera singer & he even sang a short piece for us which was such a treat! He teaches cooking classes as well, so next month we're going to have our friends back for a cooking party so we can learn his secrets!
