James was amazing and a pleasure to work with! Super responsive and catered to exactly the meal that we wanted for our event!Aug 30, 2018Verified
James was great! Made a wonderful NYE meal and managed to feed 10 people with different dietary restriction, even without the use of an oven. Would hire again!Jan 3, 2018Verified
I had family in-town and so I hired James to cook us a special dinner over Labor Day weekend. On fairly short notice, he put together several menu options that were friendly to a variety of different diet restrictions and preferences. I had the hardest time choosing what to have, but James was very accommodating and responsive! We had a very diverse menu of tuna poke, calamari, lobster salad, rib eye, and cauliflower. Additionally, I requested a special dessert at the last minute and he was more than happy to accommodate. Highly recommend James for his expertise in what he does and his professionalism. Would hire him again in a heartbeat!Sep 6, 2017VerifiedJames P.'s reply

Thanks for taking the time to leave me a great review! I'm so happy I was able to convert one niece into a tuna poke fan, and inspire a "favorite steak ever" compliment from your other niece! I really enjoyed my time in your home and look forward to cooking for your family again!
Working with James was so great! The food was exceptional and he was very communicative. Our guests were beyond satisfied and we will definitely how him for future events!Aug 11, 2017James P.'s reply
Thanks so much, Kelly! Delighted you enjoyed the meal, and I'd love to cook for you again!

- How did you get started doing this type of work?I've always loved to cook and to feed people. I learned it well from my mom and entire family of cooks. But I was always in a desk job, since right out of college. So one day I up and quit, got my food handler certification, took some knocks and learned some things in a few great kitchens, and haven't looked back!
- What types of customers have you worked with?From paleo families to busy executives, high performance athletes to folks with allergies and chronic illnesses, I love that each of my clients is unique. It allows me to utilize the full breadth of my experience and provide a tailored service that is as individual as the people I cook for.
