  1. #1 DaniBensimon Catering

    (30 reviews)

    Meredith W.

    From the point of connecting with Daniella about my dinner party, to meeting with her in person beforehand to discuss menu and pricing, and on to the event itself, there was never a time I didn't feel confident in her experience and her ability to pull off a fantastic Greek dinner for my friend's 60th birthday. And that she did! My friends are still raving about her and I could not have been more pleased with every single detail. Food was fabulous! I highly recommend Daniella for any catering needs or for cooking for a private party. She handles it all. Wish I could have her cook for me on a regular basis!

    Anja was terrific! She made a delicious dinner for 14 ladies as part of my bachelorette weekend. She was warm and friendly, and also very professional. Her responsiveness over the weeks leading up to the event was excellent. She answered all my questions, big and small!

    Avish N.

    I'm a professional chef working in San Francisco, I've been taking recurring classes with Teena independently to further educate myself in Indian Cookery. I've learned a bunch from Teena since starting class and i would highly recommend taking her classes whether you're an experienced cook or brand new to the kitchen. The pacing of the class is always perfect and the food is all delicious!

  6. #6 Big City Chefs

    (4 reviews)

    Nat C.

    Tom was unavailable on the day of our event but was extremely quick in getting me in touch with Ryan, another chef at Big City Chefs. From the beginning, Ryan was very responsive--when I told him we were interested in doing a Mediterranean lesson, he sent me a list of about 15-20 delicious-looking items from which we could choose. While the organization and responsiveness were great from the beginning, what really stood out was the lesson itself. Ryan was personable, informative and fun. In his demo, he mixed practical knowledge and tips with interesting facts and myths about ingredients and techniques. Even though we were hungry, we were almost sad to see the lesson come to an end...although that meant that we actually got to eat the food. Everything was delicious. The moussaka and lamb both were incredible, and the phyllo honey walnut triangles were just the right amount of sweet. All in all, my entire family had an absolute blast and immediately made it clear that they would want Ryan to do another event. I definitely agree, and I'm sure I'll be booking him again in the future.

    We hired Trudy to help us with knife skills and some basic recipes. We were a group of 5 and we all enjoyed her lessons. I'm sure I will hire her for more lessons in the future.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Crimson Kitchen

What do you love about your job?

I love that my job is so social and interactive. I feel that I am demystifying an entire culture through food.

It's very gratifying to teach people and make a difference. It's a lot of fun meeting new people everyday and sharing amazing stories and experiences.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

My kids inspired me to start my own business. This business gives me the ability to be independent and have flexibility. I can do things the way I want to and customize my life entirely. It is like having your own child and raising it. I love that I have full control and have the ability to impact so many lives at my own pace. I really do enjoy it.
