Our family was looking for a chef to prepare weekly dinners. We were new to this and Sat was extremely helpful, flexible, and collaborative. He has prepared meals for us twice and were so pleased that he now comes regularly. He works with us to design a weekly menu to suit our family's needs and understands our particular eating habits. It had become challenging to juggle work, activities and cooking, and we grew tired of eating out. This service has allowed us to reduce the amount of stress in planning and preparing meals and decrease worry about eating healthy. We can now enjoy precious time with our children with a delicious home cooked meal.
Alisa made everything I asked her to make and presented it beautifullly. She catered a High School graduation all night party held at the High School. She cooked the hot food for our diner on the premises. She had the appetizer platters premade and ready to go. She came early which I appreciated, and the food was made and served on time. I asked her to leave the leftovers for the kids and adult volunteers to graze on as the night went on and she did. We met at the school weeks before the event to coordinate where the cooking would be done. Also how and where things would be served. The quality of her work exceeded my expectations. I was personally nervous and wanted the diner I had set up for the kids to be perfect. Alisa helped make that happen. I would highly recommend Alisa as she was very detail oriented and did a magnificant job!
Everything was amazing! Loved having Graham in our home cooking and helping us entertain friends. Food was delicious and we were so happy to have a clean kitchen at the end of the night. The perfect way to host and be able to enjoy at the same time.
David Shevick 5 starGrace catered my 54th b-day party in my new home in San Rafael. I also hired the James Morsely Band. It was all first class. The food was phenomenal. Each dish was unique, original and delicious. Grace put so much love into the food--home-made cheese birthday cake, exotic salads and pastries. I had like 40 people and all the food was devoured. I really appreciate who Grace is and what she does.
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 Reid quickly impressed me with his enthusiasm, communication skills and professionalism during one of his cooking classes on Sauce Making 101. I had the pleasure of attending this three hour class where he demonstrated and evaluated several basic sauces, with precision and perfection! Of particular value to me was Chef Reids use of stocks to make simple but delicious sauces and the multitude ways I can use in various, savory dishes! You'll learn a lot from Chef Reid! I heartily endorse him for any teaching role and look forward to taking another class soon!
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 had family in-town and so I hired James to cook us a special dinner over Labor Day weekend. On fairly short notice, he put together several menu options that were friendly to a variety of different diet restrictions and preferences. I had the hardest time choosing what to have, but James was very accommodating and responsive! We had a very diverse menu of tuna poke, calamari, lobster salad, rib eye, and cauliflower. Additionally, I requested a special dessert at the last minute and he was more than happy to accommodate. Highly recommend James for his expertise in what he does and his professionalism. Would hire him again in a heartbeat!
Zach was excellent! We had a total of 6 private cooking lessons over the course of 4 months. Each time he came to our house for a couple hours as we created a wide variety of my favorite dishes from local restaurants in Sonoma. He taught us ways to modify a meal so you could have more variety with the same dish by just changing a few spices or ingredients, what to look for to know you're on the right track or how to "save a dish" if you veer off, and different techniques that were really useful. I'd highly recommend him!
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!
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!
Marisa was to help 20 women at a wedding shower cook 4 meals to be served for lunch. Her menu was fabulous, and her generosity of spirit in working with me phenomenal-a bit disorganized at the site, but there were a lot of people and instruction for the cooking was difficult. It didn't help that timing to get there by all, including her, was compromised by the Bay to Breakers race!
Sacha came to our home for a birthday dinner and it was an awesome experience - we have 2 young kids and Sacha was great about answering all their questions and super accommodating about working his courses around bedtimes (he even made them a special impromptu dessert)!. The food was fantastic and beautiful presentation - what you see in his pictures is what you get. Highly recommended and would definitely have him cook for us again!
Elyse is incredible! I hired her to cater my sister's baby shower and she did such an amazing job that I went on to hire her as my personal chef. I am currently finishing my doctorate degree and at the time I had classes from 8:00AM-9:00PM which made it difficult for me to make healthy meals. Every week Elyse would deliver a basket filled with delicious home-cooked meals that were catered to my personal tastes. She was always open to suggestions and requests, and found creative ways to make certain dishes vegetarian for me. When I was feeling under the weather, she made me an amazing miso soup and other dishes to help me feel better. I was so sad when she left the Bay Area to go to the East Coast; her cooking was the highlight of my week. As a caterer, she is very professional. She will work closely with you to create a menu that will suit the occasion perfectly. She really takes care of everything to make sure you can relax and indulge in a fantastic meal. Every guest at my sister's shower raved about the food and all wanted to hire her for their next event.
Let me start off by saying that I am a personal trainer and there is no other nutritionist/cleanse program that I would ever send one of my clients to. I took their 28 day cleanse class with my mom and she lost 14 pounds during the 28 days! I wasn't in the cleanse for weight loss but it was great for me, too. I learned a ton (and I thought I knew a lot before doing it). I recommend all of my clients go to Cambiati not only for their classes and 1 on 1 consultations, but for their supplement store, too! It's the only place I shop for my supplements. The ingredients in their supplements are backed by myriad studies so you know that what you are putting into your body is great for you. I cannot recommend this place enough. If you try out another program besides Cambiati and you are unhappy, it's not my fault. You have been warned. Go to Cambiati! You won't regret it.
We’ve had a hundred or more meals prepared by Geoff and Lizette Marx (kitchen treasures) and words cannot express how much our lives have benefited because of their care, skill and nutrition put into every bite. They prepared postpartum meals for days before delivery that nursed me back to health. They’ve catered large corporate events for us with exceptional professionalism. They’ve made and delivered family meals consistently for a year. Each experience was exceptional. We will continue to use them again and again.
Jessica is the ULTIMATE in-home chef. It is hard to know where to begin. First, my husband and I loved the fact that every dish Jess made for us was healthy, delicious, and with a little twist of "something extra." Any veggie or "super food" you've been wanting to try but never knew how - Jess can take and whip up something fun, inventive, and satisfying. She was keen on tailoring menus to our specific taste preferences. When Jess cooked for us after our son was born, she was also knowledgeable about what foods would be best for a new mommy...to aid stamina, healing, or the feeling of being totally well-cared-for. She was a huge help with meal planning as well, and left our home with a refrigerator-full of meals with clear and easy instructions for prep. In addition, Jess has prepared the food for a number of our dinner parties (6-8 people) and a family gathering (30+ people). Aside from an insanely delicious and memorable meal/spread, Jess is just simply the kind of person you want to have around. Her optimism, cheerfulness, and can-do attitude is contagious! Since having Jess as our "personal chef," my husband and I now put some of our cooking lessons to use on a daily basis...homemade almond milk, anyone? We wish we could have Jess cook EVERY meal for us! She will leave your family feeling full, happy, healthy, and ready to take on the kitchen.
OMG David is an amazing chef! My husband and I had David prepare 3 dinners for us, to help us eat healthier but still have tasty meals. David prepared AMAZING! meals -- he did some prep before he came and then just did the finishing touches at our house. He also offered to do it all at home but we wanted to see how he did some of it. We will be using David again soon!
We had a wonderful time receiving cooking lessons from Shelley. She was super knowledgeable, friendly, prepared, responsive, and worked with us to make sure we got the most out of the experience. Thanks Shelley!
I hired Meg to cater my corporate team outing. Her and her partner did an awesome job cooking lunch for us - the team loved everything! Meg listened to my vision for the event and executed super well. Thank you Meg!
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!
