Having Sat cook for my family of five has been nothing short of life-changing. He spends the afternoon in my kitchen preparing healthy dinners, breakfasts and snacks according to my family's complicated dietary needs and varied taste preferences. The food is truly gourmet, and I'm spending the time playing with my three young kids rather than meal planning and cooking. His knowledge of nutrition and his ability to cook "whole" while navigating several food allergies has surprised my expectations; and the kids cheer when "Sat is cooking!"
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!
Grace provided a delicious 5 course meal for my husband's birthday right in our own home. It was amazing! The appetizer of endive and Serrano ham was great. The seafood soup with shrimp, clams, lobster mussels and white fish in a tomato veggie base was delish! And my 3 years old was licking her plate after the chocolate mousse cake. We were so full and happy. Great food served at home!
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!
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!
Sophie was amazing! She's the real deal in terms of cooking, explaining things and making things simple. I'm so glad I hired her. I'll definitely hire her again!
Bill makes learning about cooking fun, interactive and easy to learn! We loved hearing about the history of all of the dishes we made and Bill was very accommodating when we requested to learn certain techniques and sauces. He is extremely passionate about what he does and cares that his clients learn everything they can to be able to cook on their own. We were sad to see him move but will definitely be visiting him so we can learn even more! Thanks Bill!
We had Anja come over and do a cooking class for our company employees and significant others. She helped craft an amazing menu, wine pairings and tasty treats. Everything went off without a hitch and people couldn't stop raving about how much they enjoyed her instruction. While the food was great, it was her personality and pleasant spirit that really made this an awesome experience. Couldn't recommend her more highly.
Elizabeth cooked for my family of four during a difficult time and she really listened to our needs and took a lot of pressure off me with her delicious meals. I highly recommend Elizabeth for all your private cooking needs.
David is a fantastic chef. David prepared dinner for me and a few couples and did a great job. I was struggling with what to serve and David had some great ideas, and asked me great questions (what did my space look like, what kind of food, passed hors doevres or full dinner, etc). David also can work with a ton of food allergies/concerns (we had a gluten free, dairy free woman in attendance and he was able to handle all that). I would HIGHLY recommend Chef David for any event.
So glad we found Dan's company on this website. From the first point of contact he was completely on top of everything. At first we wanted to have a cooking class, but after talking with him about the other types of experiences he could offer, we went with a demonstration/dinner party which was so much better than an actual class. We went with the Cotogna inspired menu and got to learn just as much, while spending time with our friends drinking wine. Perfect night!
Tessa is an amazing culinary instructor and chef! My boyfriend and I took her Thanksgiving Basics class and loved it. The class was informative and fun, with the perfect balance of hands-on cooking and demonstrations. We got to take home some delicious recipes handcrafted by Tessa - which I will definitely using for Thanksgivings to come!
I have now taken two Indian cooking classes from Meenu Bhasin. In the first cooking class she made chicken korma, lentils and a yogurt side dish. These dishes were about a medium level of difficulty to prepare. Meenu was very thorough in explaining and showing each step of the cooking process. She also included a list of all the ingredients and spices, and where to purchase them. In the second class we made chicken tikka masala, saag paneer and rice with vegetables. Meenu is very good at teaching the preparation and cooking process of each dish. She goes over the ingredients and the entire process very carefully. She also leaves plenty of time for questions and discussion. I really enjoyed taking her classes and learned a lot about Indian cooking. I strongly recommend her as a cooking teacher/chef.
I had one of the best cooking experience with Chef Joe. The class was so well designed and the pace was just perfect for anyone with all sorts of cooking levels. Chef Joe was so knowledgable, patient, and he was also very funny. My boyfriend and I walked away leaning a tons!
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!
Anita is knowledgeable and explains clearly any cooking steps. Its a pleasure to cook as she teaches and one gains a secure understanding of the recipe since she allows for the student their own thinking space and doesn't "hold your hand" too much.
Great teacher - the most hands-on classes in SF. Everything is delicious plus he is very approachable and eager to share all his tips and tricks of the trade (where to shop for certain ingredients and equipment, etc).
From start to finish, Tim provided nothing but top notch service. He was a professional in every way, and did everything he said he would do. The food items we discussed we out of this world. Very tasty and filling at the same time. I would def hire Tim time and time again if I am every back in the San Francisco area and need Star Service.
