Chef Rocco was wonderful! I planned a bachelorette party at my house and had him come and host a cooking class for us. It went very well, he taught us how to make stuffed and baked zucchini & a gnocchi pasta (actually making the pasta noodles). Definitely would recommend, he's a sweet Italian guy with a lot of cooking experience!

We had a great team building cooking class with Rocco. The food was tasty and we learned a lot of great tips for how to cook better at home. We really appreciated that the class was both practical and fun.

Dinner with Sat was the definitely the highlight of our girls weekend/bachelorette in Sonoma!! The food was delicious, he was very easy and flexible to work with and helped organize the perfect menu. Throughout the 3 course meal, he went at our pace and did an amazing job returning the kitchen back to a spotless condition. We had him enter the house we rented a few hours before we got back from wine tasting and he was able to take care of all the prep/cooking well before the time we wanted to start eating. After a full day of wine tasting, having a meal cooked in our house was the perfect treat b/c no one wanted to get dressed or go out. We had a group of 8 girls (1 gluten free, 1 who didn't eat red meat, 1 pescatarian) and well as 7 self-proclaimed foodies and he was able to accommodate and wow us all! I can't stress how much we loved the food and entire experience - would definitely dine with him again if we return to the area.

Our family was looking for a chef to prepare weekly dinners. We were new to this and Sat was extremely helpful, flexible, and collaborative. He has prepared meals for us twice and were so pleased that he now comes regularly. He works with us to design a weekly menu to suit our family's needs and understands our particular eating habits. It had become challenging to juggle work, activities and cooking, and we grew tired of eating out. This service has allowed us to reduce the amount of stress in planning and preparing meals and decrease worry about eating healthy. We can now enjoy precious time with our children with a delicious home cooked meal.

Andrea did an outstanding job. I could not have asked for a better fit. She is experienced, professional, and easy to work with. She was uber-responsive to txts, accommodative regarding payment method, and flexible regarding food preferences. My team loved her high-quality food selection for the main course and the finesse of the appetizer, initial courses, and desserts. For instance, the chocolate-covered strawberries were custom-made with coconut shreds, dark chocolate, and praline. She dressed the part and brought a wonderful helper / assistant along. She shopped at the best meat shop in SF, and the king salmon tasted amazing- buttery, rich, and fresh. She cleaned up 100%, and left the kitchen cleaner than she found it. Finally, she was able to get this production for 11people together in less than 48 hours. I'd definitely recommend her and her staff, as well as hire her again. Thank you, Chef Gray!

We hired Chef Graham last-minute to help with a fun event for a 19th birthday, where the birthday girl wanted her friends and family to participate in the cooking process. I just made the booking and wasn't personally in attendance for the event, but I heard from all who where that Chef Graham was incredibly skilled and charming and an all-around great find. Highly recommended and thanks again!

Dining at Graceful Kitchen, Grace Zhou’s pop-up restaurant, was a unique and delightful experience. Grace planned a series of original and authentic courses, taking into account vegetarian preferences, which were cooked and served with style. The setting was immaculately prepared, courses arrived within a reasonable time, and guests were entertained with music and conversation. Regulars are only sorry that she moved to another country!

I've known Grace for many years. I have been over to her house for home cooked meals that were truly gourmet, and delicious. She also prepared some food and sold it from her home. On the level of catering for large parties, I went to our friend Dave's party last month were Grace did the catering. The food was flawless, delicious, with great presentation, and great variety.

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!

Then had tons of yummy receipes for the week from marinating meat, making homemade dips/sauces to healthy/tasty snacks.

I hired Chef James to provide coaching to my young nephew (18) who for the past couple of years has shown interest both in baking and cooking. My gift to my nephew was to have Chef James teach him three different desserts and how the ingredients can be used in other applications and to provide him with a mentor, even for a few hours. Chef James quickly impressed me with the texts we sent one another…he was very kind in helping me prepare for the class, and I formed an impression of liking him before we had met him! He came to the house and within five minutes, both Michael and I knew he would learn a lot. While James is professional, his manner is kind, patient, enthusiastic, and so easy to work with. Chef James pulled Michael’s self-confidence levels to heights not seen prior to this in terms of feeling comfortable about creating some new recipes, using absolutely new processes and equipment. In between moments, Chef James was so open and kind to Michael’s inquires as to his oral resume of where he attended culinary school and worked at various restaurants, hotels and such in Europe and America, as well as the various avenues of his culinary applications, such as catering, mentoring, home classes, etc. Both of us will never forget Chef James’s soft and kind approach to teaching; he is patient, and very supportive to the student. It was such a win-win outcome, I asked Chef James to consider of providing a cooking class for six of my women friends.

Our office had a team building retreat and hired Chef James to do a three hours cooking class for us. Chef James did a wonderful job even though it was a challenging group of 15 staff at a house. Chef James was very responsive throughout the planning process, which included working out our menu with choices to pick from, being considerate of the limitation of our venue and not wanting to mess up the house, and giving us detailed list of needed equipment and shopping list. We had a wonderful time learning to make three appetizers, grilled steak with Caesars salad, and lava cake as dessert. He taught our different groups special skills in cutting, blending, grilling, etc. I highly recommend Chef James and will definitely use him again for future retreats.

Chef James Reid quickly impressed me with his enthusiasm, communication skills and professionalism during one of his cooking classes on Sauce Making 101. I had the pleasure of attending this three hour class where he demonstrated and evaluated several basic sauces, with precision and perfection! Of particular value to me was Chef Reid’s use of stocks to make simple but delicious sauces and the multitude ways I can use in various, savory dishes! You'll learn a lot from Chef Reid! I heartily endorse him for any teaching role and look forward to taking another class soon!

Michelle is great and prepared us a lovely meal (and cocktails) in Napa. Fantastic option for a group with young kids- much easier and lower stress than finding a babysitter, and Michelle was flexible to serve the meal once all the kids had gone to bed. She also sets up a beautiful table setting complete with fresh flowers. Definitely recommended!

Angela is an exceptional caterer! We hired her for a long (10 day) job for a production crew, serving multiple meals for VERY hungry people. I heard consistently that they were the best meals the crew had ever had on a job. She was very thorough in her choices, and made it obvious that she takes pride in what she cooks, plans, and serves. We plan to make Angela our go-to caterer for ALL future jobs. As much as I would love to tell you to stay away so we can hoard her...you HAVE to hire Angela and try her meals for yourself!

The Dishes are so flavorful and delicately put together. I can tell a lot of time goes into preparing the dishes. I think what I like most is that all the ingredients are top shelf, and its prepared food that I can not get anywhere else at this level of quality. It's above restraunt standards. Especially impressed by the fact that they can hit the mark on so many dietary specific needs and still make it taste amazing! Get the Asian pear muffins! Or any of her famous baked goods! They will not disappoint.

Wanting to learn to cook lower calorie food that still had great flavor, I hired Zac to come to my home and teach in our kitchen. My husband is our (excellent) cook, I am not a cook (at fifty-something years old), presenting a bit of a challenge. Rising to the occasion, Zac planned a meal that read like the menu at French Laundry! Panic!There was no way I could prepare this meal. Zac said...Way! He met me at Sonoma Market to introduce me to fresh everything, not packaged anything! Back at our kitchen, the magic began and WOW! Probably one of the most delicious dinners I've ever had at home, and certainly rivaling 5 star restaurants. Our cooking and dining experience was nothing short of superb and better yet, not a dollop of butter or a drop of cream was used to create the fantastic soup, salad, and complex main course. Through Zac's exceptional knowledge of herbs and spices, he taught me to create extraordinary flavors to enhance the food, and not over power it. It was a brilliant evening of cooking! Zac is easy going, yet very assured, and his ability to communicate is second to none. Remarkable job by a talented young man who will be continuing to educate us in the kitchen and most assuredly catering events for us. Bravo, Zac...Bravo!

There were 4 couples celebrating several 50th Birthdays and Zachary created the menu and prepared the food for all of us. The thought and time he put into the menu as well as the overall preparation were outstanding. Everyone in the group felt the same way. My only suggestion would be to hire an assistant, someone to help with food prep and table lay out, that way he can continue to focus on cooking and possibly move the night along a little better. Still having said that, overall it was a great experience and if we ever go back to Napa again we will be calling Zachary!!

Zach was excellent! We had a total of 6 private cooking lessons over the course of 4 months. Each time he came to our house for a couple hours as we created a wide variety of my favorite dishes from local restaurants in Sonoma. He taught us ways to modify a meal so you could have more variety with the same dish by just changing a few spices or ingredients, what to look for to know you're on the right track or how to "save a dish" if you veer off, and different techniques that were really useful. I'd highly recommend him!

To celebrate our 13 years (3 years married!) anniversary, my husband surprised me with a private cooking class with Chef Traci! Because I am still fairly new on my whole foods plant based lifestyle journey (for health reasons!) this was a SUPER thoughtful gift and what made it special too was Chef Traci! I loved how it was held in her very own kitchen which made it low key, hands-on, personable and fun! Chef Traci was not only very welcoming but knowledgeable, entertaining and willing to answer any and all questions! To start off Chef Traci had prepared for us a cheddar cheese and an eggplant caponata with crackers - both of which were super addicting! I had to ask for those recipes! Then started the preparation for the blue cheese of which was stuffed in dates for our appetizers and let me tell you this blue cheese is HEAVEN! I LOVE blue cheese (the stinkier the better!) and this was an amazing alternative and I appreciated how Chef Traci let us season to our taste! I was beyond stoked knowing that I got to bring a mason jar full of this yummy goodness back home! After the blue cheese, we made a ricotta cheese, cut up a ton of veggies and assembled our entree which was a delicious and super easy to make zucchini lasagna! Side note: My husband brought a bottle of wine so YES we most definitely were all sharing it while having a fun time in the kitchen! Chef Traci then prepared for us a chocolate mousse dessert to enjoy later while she let us sit out on her deck to enjoy more wine and appetizers. Once the lasagna was done cooking, she brought us to a long dining table in a separate room where we were served table side and soon after finished off on a chocolaty note! The whole experience was AMAZING and I HIGHLY recommend Chef Traci! What's even better is that I now have these recipes so I can make and share these delicious eats with friends and family =)!

I was planning a family party with about 25 guests. Since I wanted to enjoy the party while everyone was here, I decided to get it catered. I requested bids on Thumbtack and received a few. I looked the caterers up on Yelp as well. Cooking with Traci had 50 reviews on Yelp and 49 of them were 5 star. I hired her and was very impressed with her communication, flexibility in planning the menu and suggestions. The day of the party, she arrived promptly and had everything ready as she promised. I had ordered salmon cakes with pesto dressing, roasted corn salad, green salad with fresh veggies and watermelon-feta salad. We also had two large loaves of freshly baked bread. Everything was so tasty and our guests loved it. I would definitely recommend Traci for catering. She also holds cooking classes in Berkeley. I hope to try one soon! Think about Traci for your next party!

We had a fabulous experience with Chef Traci. We had such a good experience with her cooking class that we then had Chef Traci prepare dinner for a special birthday dinner party. The class was not only really educational in terms of new flavors and techniques, but it was fun, nicely social and a really delicious meal. Chef Traci prepared a great meal for 12 "foodies" for my mother in law's birthday. (These are people who dine at top restaurants and know good food!) All loved the meal, and communication and coming up with a flexible menu couldn't have been easier. Traci had great ideas how to arrange the menu to accommodate one vegan along with several people who favor meat/poultry. Traci is not only a good chef, but very nice, creative and a pleasure to work with.

We had a fantastic experience hiring John, and I would unreservedly recommend him. I was hosting an 8-person dinner party with a group of international friends at a rental property in Sonoma in mid November. He was very responsive to my fairly vague request on Thumbtack, instantly proposing a delicious-sounding 4 course meal with appetizers that took account of my preference for mostly vegan dishes. He was flexible and easy to work with at a very reasonable price point. He arrived on time with his wife to help, and they cooked, served and cleaned very professionally with a great friendly attitude. I would certainly hire him again.

I threw a surprise 40th birthday party for my wife at our house. There was a lot to plan for and had no idea what to have for food. A friend referred me to Chef GiGi. First of all, hiring a chef was not my idea of having food prepared. Long story short, Chef GiGi was incredible, professional, thorough and reasonable! Her ideas and plans were elegant, classy yet incredibly FUN! Timing was also efficient! Hiring a pro was the right choice. She came in with a couple people including a server. She made all finger foods and all of it was so yummy. In the beginning I was nervous not having a "meal". Guests were amazed and did not leave hungry! I truly recommend her. You will not be disappointed.

It didn't help that timing to get there by all, including her, was compromised by the Bay to Breakers race!

I am the clinic director for a medi-spa where we provide Coolsculpting. A number of our patients have gone to Cambiati Wellness to continue their fat loss regimen. They were very happy with their results after having the procedure and then doing the cleanse so I thought I would check it out. I enrolled in the program along with my son. He's 25 and has had stomach issues for some time. I heard it could be helpful and I thought we could support each other. I am now 2 months from the last day of my cleanse where I lost 5lbs of fat. I've since dropped another 4lbs. I feel amazing! It's not just the loss of fat but my skin looks better, I'm off caffeine I have increased energy and big bonus. I fit into clothes I haven't been able to wear for quite a while. With the education and support I received from Rebecca and her amazing staff I feel like I'm finally living/eating and maintaining the healthy lifestyle I've always wanted for myself. And my son who did the cleanse with me, through special guidance from Rebecca, was able to reduce his inflammation so much his stomach issues have almost completely cleared. Thank you Rebecca!

Let me start off by saying that I am a personal trainer and there is no other nutritionist/cleanse program that I would ever send one of my clients to. I took their 28 day cleanse class with my mom and she lost 14 pounds during the 28 days! I wasn't in the cleanse for weight loss but it was great for me, too. I learned a ton (and I thought I knew a lot before doing it). I recommend all of my clients go to Cambiati not only for their classes and 1 on 1 consultations, but for their supplement store, too! It's the only place I shop for my supplements. The ingredients in their supplements are backed by myriad studies so you know that what you are putting into your body is great for you. I cannot recommend this place enough. If you try out another program besides Cambiati and you are unhappy, it's not my fault. You have been warned. Go to Cambiati! You won't regret it.

I love Cambiati Wellness. I knew I needed a lifestyle change but was having a hard time actually making it. I did the 28 day cleanse and lost 10 pounds. I needed to lose more so I joined Club Cambiati and have been so happy with the support I receive. I get to meet with a nutritionist twice a month and she has been so helpful with giving me real world ideas of how I can stay on program based on what is going on with my life that week. I also love the scale, how it not only measures weight but actual fat loss and inflammation, etc, I know a lot about nutrition but I am continually learning more from Rebecca and Julia at Cambiati Wellness. If you are looking to lose weight or just clean up your diet and get healthier, this is definitely the place for you.
