I hired Chef Rocco to give my 17 and 18 year old nieces a cooking lesson. He was informative, fun and interactive. The dishes we made were delicious and easy. He showed us proper knife skills and good kitchen organization. I would definitely recommend Chef Rocco for cooking lessons or as a private chef for your next party!
Chef Sat did a spectacular job for my girlfriend's birthday party! I had two previous chefs flake out on me, the first being completely unresponsive, and the second not answering a request for a quote and then going completely over budget. Sat stepped in with only a few days to organize, and was more professional and invested in the event than I could have hoped for. Sat listened carefully as I rambled about which ingredients I was hoping to include on the menu, and provided great feedback about what would be in season, what we would be able to find with good quality, and how we could break from a traditional menu in order to squeeze in as much variety as possible. He patiently revised his menu 4-5 times for me to address every detail I could throw at him - and, remember, this was all with under a week to plan the event. Sat also helped me rent dishware, and was very transparent about what would be needed, and what things would cost - this was a huge time saver. At the party, Sat was charismatic and charming. He thoroughly cleaned the entire kitchen and packaged all our leftovers while we ate. He fielded our questions about his background, cooking techniques, sourcing tools and ingredients. The Bottom line, I would hire Sat again in a heartbeat. Thanks for the wonderful evening!
Very professional. Made us all relax and enjoy his great cooking!
This review is LONG overdue! My wife and I do not buy each other gifts for traditional holidays, we enjoying giving each other experiences! That said... for Valentine's Day this year instead of going out to dinner, my wife surprised me by booking Grace to come and cook for us, in our own home, in our pajamas! Grace was so incredibly professional, her meals were outstanding, and she provided my wife several options to choose from, and she knocked each dish out of the park. She even put the leftovers into our own Tupperware, and did not rush us during each course. My wife and I love to cook ourselves as well as explore new restaurants in the foodie capital of SF... and we both agreed we would rather have Grace cook for us than experience Michelin star restaurants - she is the real deal! Cannot wait to book our next experience with Grace :)
My partner and I just had our first cooking/nutrition lesson with Daniella and we LOVE her!!! Learned how to grocery shop cheap, healthy, tasty and organic. Then had tons of yummy receipes for the week from marinating meat, making homemade dips/sauces to healthy/tasty snacks. She is so kind, easygoing, fun and knows her cooking stuff! :) We are signed up for more weekly cooking lessons and so happy we got connected with Daniella. Thank you!
Chef James was hired to assist me in advanced catering procedures, catering events and cooking lessons. He drove to my house for my first lesson and was prompt. We prepared and cooked several dishes that were going to be used for my upcoming event. Chef James showed great skill, professionalism, and explained everything thoroughly. For my event at Netflix, Chef James was amazing. He helped me with day-of procedures for my event including organization, instructions for my staff and food décor. Prior to my event, Chef James called me to check in on how I was doing and I felt I had a mentor who truly cared about making my event successful and in making my catering business successful in the long run. I highly recommend Chef James for all your cooking and catering needs, from novice to advanced level. He is a true professional and even better mentor. Thank you Chef James.
Angela is AMAZING! Her cooking made me forget that I once enjoyed meat, and I never wanted to look back. I would recommend Angela and GCD to anyone, and everyone.
I first had chef lorenzo's food two years ago while visiting the bay area. It was fantastic! Some of the best fried rice and chicken I've ever had. Well worth the price. Also a good teacher if you ever want lessons!
Thanks to one of my colleagues who introduced Anita to me. She has been a true blessing to my kitchen and culinary skills. Apart from being an expert chef she is an amazing teacher. She has been mentoring me for for about 6 months now and the dishes I make under her guidance have always fetched me rave reviews of the superlative degree. She shares some of her great culinary secrets and techniques with me and follows through very patiently. She is very professional, takes my needs into consideration and devises each class with lots of enthusiasm and fervor. She is always punctual and has a very pleasing demeanor. She taught me to cook some mind blowing dishes in my very own kitchen :) thanks Anita from coming all the way to teach me. You have been a great source of inspiration to me.
We hired Jessica to come and cook for us for my intimate bridal shower this year (about 20 people) and she knocked it out of the park! Not only was she a pleasure to work with, but she made us a delicious and healthy spread with lots of options for everyone's tastes and dietary preferences. She worked with me to come up with a perfect menu and I still dream of the carnitas she made that day! We even ended up getting a mini cooking lesson from Jessica - because everyone was so interested in what she made, she took the time to explain everything and my guests couldn't stop chatting with her! She's so engaging and clearly passionate about what she does, I'd recommend her for any event and for cooking lessons too!
We asked Thuy to offer us a cooking lesson in our home, featuring her outstanding Vietnamese recipes. She offered to purchase all the required ingredients, and created a menu to accommodate my pescetarian diet. She showed up right on time, and led us through a number of recipes that were fun to make and delicious. It was an outstanding experience, and one I hope to repeat soon!
Mouthwatering, delicate, rich, tasty, treats are yours to behold when you try any Butter Love Bakeshop delicacy! Whether sweet or savory, the only danger is addiction, but you only live once, so, go for it!
Cake Crafts by Samia is a very unique service. Her cakes are not only gorgeous to look at but they are Devine in taste. She caters to your needs and always delivers a great cake. Her designs are outstanding and her work is very clean and very professional. No one can beat her prices and she not only is affordable but you can give your own design. I recommend it very highly five stars all the way.
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.
