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 :)

Jacquie is great! She helped me with cooking and hosting an amazing birthday BBQ, with highlights such as grilled corns, bacon wrapped hot dogs and amazing salads. She knows exactly what she is doing and has a very much non-bullit style at work, which I really appreciate. Thank you Thumbtack for finding me such a great chef!

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!

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.
