Stephanie did a wonderful job with a special order cake. She was prompt, professional - and makes a wonderful dessert. I would hire her again in a second. You should, too.

This is my first time working with Gaby. I was taking a risk as the cake I ordered was for a dinner party for 12 adult, half of whom are amazing home chefs and two are professionally trained chefs. A friend got a job at Google and so, to surprise him, I ordered this cake (pics) for the party. Gaby was easy AND pleasant to communicate with. She made me a coconut pineapple flavored cake with rainbow layered inside to match the google colors. The crowd, 12 adults and 11 kids went crazy with how beautiful the cake was. Lots and lots of photos later, we finally got to taste it and suddenly the room got quiet. everyone kept shaking their heads with their eyes closed. The cake was so delicious, there was no sound for like 30 seconds. Gaby, I will be hiring you again and again. My friends asked for your contact info. Thank you for such an amazing cake that more than pleased my chef friends and the kids!

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 :)

I requested for a pastry chef to make cookies and cupcakes for the Super Bowl- Keri sent me a quote and made amazing goodies! I wanted them to be Seahawks themed and she hand decorated all of the cookies with their logo. Everyone loved them and the cookies were way bigger than expected. Thanks again!

Jacquie was everything I could have asked for in a home chef: super organized and efficient in the kitchen, creative, talented, fun to work with, and respectful of our space and time. The food was delicious! I would hire her again and/or recommend her to a friend in a heartbeat.

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!

Chef John was great. He came for my daughter's 10th birthday and showed 6 girls how to make and decorate cake pops. He brought all the ingredients making it super easy for me and two hours of fun for the girls. He was friendly and fun, really a great hire. Thanks Chef John!
