We hired Chef Rocco to cook dinner for a group of 6 adults, 2 with food sensitivities. He was accessible by email and helped develop a menu that would work with our group, came on time, setup quickly, and was able to work around our food issues. The food was fresh and tasty, with much larger portions than I expected, and he explained all dishes upon serving. He solicited our feedback and by the end of the night the kitchen was immaculate...such a treat. I would definitely hire him again.

Krista is an incredible chef that also teaches her craft as she's whipping up an awesome dish, (not as easy as it looks). Not only do her meals make me moan (seriously, they do) with tantalizing pleasure, Krista prepares them in a flash. She's very creative and is ambitious to try new things. Oh, and her baking though... Insane. I can never turn down her delights, even when I'm already full to the brim. I'm the luckiest neighbor on the planet :)

Krista, as my roommate, cooks meals for me as though I were a queen! Always something different, a new dish to try, a new herb she's found to a new recipe. Always a treat to taste, smell and be in her company!

I absolutely love her pastries! Her rugelachs were so good, I thought they were from Russ & Daughters or some other bakery. And her macarons are even better than most bakeries' macarons. Sorry, there are no photos because we finished it all too quick.

I had a terrific experience with JC. Everything from communication to the delivered treats was perfect. The cookies were absolutely delicious, especially the gluten-free ones (I know, right?) I am happy to have found my go-to pastry chef in SF :)

Professional, experienced, and fantastically creative! I have had Chef Auri cater multiple events with orders well over 100 treats at a time, all delivered in a timely manner, customized to my needs, and made with the expertise of a seasoned baker. Looking for a baker able to produce any custom order you can imagine? Choose Auri. Looking for classic treats or a recommendation for the perfect platter for your event? Choose Auri. I could not recommend her more highly.

Chef Jenni is a joy to play with in any kitchen. Her creativity with recipes, patience with students and knowledge of culinary short cuts, techniques and history makes any time spent with her well worth it. Time in the kitchen should be fun and Chef Jenni makes it so FUN !

Chef Faye just helped cater my non-profit's annual fundraiser. She did an amazing job making it family friendly and delicious. From the beginning she was helpful and accommodating to our organizations needs and as we were all new to hiring caterers she was gracious in asking the right questions and was just on top of everything. It took a few months for us to plan out all the logistics, but she was patient and so helpful! I would definitely recommend Chef Faye for any of your future parities!

I have been a customer of Sweet Citrus since Faye first 'opened her doors'. Every year my family and I host a Christmas Eve Open House. Faye has been providing her delicious mini-cupcakes for several years and they are always a bg hit. They are always beautiful and delicious and no matter how many I order, there are never any left-overs.

I did a 3-hour cooking class with Alejandra. She is fantastic! She is an excellent teacher, both with respect to general culinary techniques and to details of specific recipes. Her food is fresh, tasty, and quite simple to prepare. She establishes a friendly, easy-going atmosphere in the class, and has a great sense of humor. She is superbly trained in classical French cuisine but also has experience in Thai and Ecuadorian foods. Yes, she went above and beyond what I expected. What could have been improved? Well, nothing! Thanks, Alejandra!

We had a terrific time cooking with Alejandra. We wanted a hands on course and her class was definitely that and more. She made us feel like we were at a friends house cooking dinner together. She has a great personality and we enjoyed talking with her about numerous cuisines around the world.. She was very informative about where to find the specific ingredients that Thai cooking calls for. We are looking forward to attending another class of hers in the near future.

Chef Alejandra recently catered a wine tasting for 40 people for us in SF. Under less than ideal conditions (crowded room, minimal equipment and high guest expectations) she delivered wave after wave of delicious and perfectly paired food. She was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish, and I would recommend her and her team without hesitation. Excellent value!

After much searching, we finally found the Pan Asian food we were looking for (Chinese, Japanese, Thai and Vietnamese) for a world traveler's Celebration of Life. The food and Chef Ty were both fabulous! The appetizers, complemented by delicious sauces, were a huge hit with our guests. The produce was fresh and delicious. And RCs were not only able to pull this together on very short notice (~1 week) with grace and aplomb (thanks to Lana as well), but they also created an attractive presentation in an unfortunately small space. I would definitely use Rainbow Chefs again, and will recommend them to those looking for exceptionally tasty and healthy food. Five stars!

It what can only be described as a limited and challenging environment, Rainbow Chefs provided a gourmet dinner for my executives that was truly exquisite. Everything about the process was handled well with great communication from Lana. I chose Rainbow Chefs after initial conversations with more than 20 caterers because I was convinced that she was really listening to me. Chef Nicholas created a masterpiece of a dinner that was enjoyed by everybody. It was the highlight of a long day.

Rainbow Chef's catered our company Halloween Party and did an amazing job! They served up homemade small bites with personal touches, including adorable coffin-shaped brownies and ricotta and spinach eyeballs. Everything tasted amazing. We highly recommend them!

What I liked about working with Chef Liu was her sincere interest and patience in teaching me, a beginner, to be able to prepare my own good tasting cuisine. When the dishes were finished I felt confident to prepare my own meals for my own family and friends. Her knowledge and skills were great and the results tasted good too.

Chef Liu delivers high quality food! She's responsive to my requests, communicates clearly about details, and delivers timely. It's great price too. I highly recommend Chef Liu's service if you want to wow your guests with authentic Chinese food or deserts.

I hired Chelsea to bake cupcakes and set up for a baby shower I was hosting. Chelsea helped me select the flavor combo for the cupcakes and they turned out delicious! She was on time delivering them and did a fantastic job carrying out my vision for the set up of the shower. She even did the floral arrangements. I strongly recommend Chelsea for catering or events. She's professional, punctual and personable. I plan on hiring her again for my future events.
