Chef Pete communicated well. He was responsive when I contacted him and was open to changing the menu. The meal was prepared by his sous chef, Russ. The food was exactly how I had envisioned and actually exceeded my expectations. I will hire him again when I come to Napa.

Sat Khalsa represented himself as described on Thumbtack. He was very professional & easy to work with. His dishes are superb. Sat is not only a seasoned chef, but a very knowledgeable nutritionist. He is a perfect chef for me because I am a foodie to begin with, but I also have to lose weight & eat healthy due to inflammation from auto immune. I am so happy with the delicious meals he prepared for me. I asked him to come back & cook for me next week too. Thank you Sat.

We hired Made With Love (Debbie) to cook a meal for our group of 5 one evening at our Air B&B in Sonoma. It was awesome to come home after a day of wine tasting to a lovey home cooked meal. Debbie had appetizers ready for us when we arrived, and the house smelled delicious. There was more than enough food... we even cancelled our reservations at Ad Hoc the next night to enjoy the leftovers!

Hi had the pleasure of selecting Chet to prepare a menu and work my Friendsgiving event which was my first time starting a tradition with my friends. From Chet's initial response to my quote request through the end of my event, the services provided were first class! Chet worked with me on my menu and I felt that he truly listened and took my vision into consideration when delivering my sample menu. I was extremely nervous since in the past, I would always be the one to prepare meals for my guest however, this year I wanted to do something different allowing me the opportunity to spend time with my guest instead of slaving in the kitchen. Chet checked in with me a few days prior to my event to confirm final details and then it was show time. He showed up on time as expected with everything needed along with a helper and the magic began. I am very satisfied with the outcome. From the taste and flavors of the food, the presentation, the hospitality Chet and his crew showed my guest, the clean up, to Chet's willingness to do more than expected (setting up tableware and more). A+ to Chet. He will certainly be my go to for future events in need of catering. Well done!

I've known Grace for many years. I have been over to her house for home cooked meals that were truly gourmet, and delicious. She also prepared some food and sold it from her home. On the level of catering for large parties, I went to our friend Dave's party last month were Grace did the catering. The food was flawless, delicious, with great presentation, and great variety. I strongly recommend Grace for catering your events.

We hired Chef Sean to cook and serve at a dinner party for 8 ppl in our home. Our experience with Chef Sean was fantastic. He was extremely responsive during the menu planning process. He showed up early on the day of the event. He was completely organized, brought printed menus and all of his needed supplies, and the food he prepared was delicious. He was delightful with our guests and extremely professional and friendly with all of the service he provided during the dinner itself. Would definitely work with him again in the future.

Daniella was a perfect fit from Day 1. She made my birthday dinner party for 12 feel effortless with her thoughtful menu ideas, careful ingredient sourcing, flexibility, and responsiveness. It was seamless! She prepared a three course Mediterranean/North African meal, including hummus with tahine sourced from Israel, fresh veggie hors d'ouevres from the farmers market, delicious goat cheese/beet salad, a succulent chicken tagine, roasted veggies and cardamom spiced rice, and for the grand finale, a banana chocolate cake to die for! Perhaps most of all, I appreciated her openness and friendliness. She was a lovely addition in our home while she prepared the meal, and a true professional. Very, very happy that I was able to find her and have recommended her to others since.

I've been fortunate to experience both formal and informal meals prepared by Graham. Not only is he a gifted and sophisticated chef with knowledge of foods, wines, and culinary techniques from around the world, but he also has a great ability to craft the perfect setting for a meal. He could fill an empty warehouse with warmth, romance, and a sense of something worth celebrating. Graham is committed to his craft and takes great pride in his work. You will not be disappointed.

My husband hired Rose to cater a private dinner at our home in celebration for my 40th birthday. It was a 5 course meal for 20 people, and the food was fantastic! We started with 4 different appetizers during the cocktail hour, followed by a salad course, entree (guests were able to choose from 5 options, which I really liked), cheese course (my favorite) and dessert. We had never hosted anything like this at home before and it took us some time to figure out what we wanted . Rose was very responsive throughout the planning process and and helpful when it came to giving us suggestions and guidance. On the day of the event her team helped us to set up our tables. Once the party started they required no direction from us and kept the meal running very smoothly, allowing my husband and I to enjoy ourselves to the fullest. Rose and her crew were truly instrumental in making this milestone a most memorable one for me. We would not think twice to book her again.

The Dishes are so flavorful and delicately put together. I can tell a lot of time goes into preparing the dishes. I think what I like most is that all the ingredients are top shelf, and its prepared food that I can not get anywhere else at this level of quality. It's above restraunt standards. Especially impressed by the fact that they can hit the mark on so many dietary specific needs and still make it taste amazing! Get the Asian pear muffins! Or any of her famous baked goods! They will not disappoint.

Lucas did a tremendous job for us. He accommodated last minute changes, dietary restrictions and additional guests. The food was superb. He personally delivered everything on Thanksgiving, quickly organized the meal for us, ensured everything was perfect and then excused himself. We had enough food for three times the number of people and had leftovers that saw us through the entire holiday weekend. All 14 of us heartily thank and recommend Lucas.

Chef Cheri catered an event for an organization that I am associated with and it was outstanding. Cheri food presentation was excellent and the food as so good. I was actually surprised at how much food she prepared for the price. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for catering services at a great price.

I would absolutely recommend Jose! My girlfriends and I were in Sonoma for a long weekend and hired him to cook for us one night. He and his wife Anita were lovely, professional, and exceeded our expectations! They cooked and served us a DELICIOUS 3 course meal complete with appetizers and it turned out to be everyone’s favorite dinner of the trip!

Dan did a great job on a birthday dinner I hosted recently at my home. He showed up on time, prepared and served a delicious meal (the herb rubbed pork loin is incredible), and left my kitchen tidy and clean. I'll definitely be hiring Dan again in the future!

I had the pleasure of not just dining on Stephanie's divine culinary creations but also the gift to stand by her side and prepare food with her. Watching her work in the kitchen truly transformed me in how I approach my methods of food preparation. There was much knowledge being brought forth but what stood out to me the most was the amount of joy and love pouring from her as she prepared meals. Being in a kitchen with her was an absolute pleasure because it became alive. She showed me the life that is bursting from food and that it is more than just to be consumed for our daily existence. I felt like it was a celebration to be next to her as she lovingly cared for each ingredient and its relationship to the others. I always look forward to what Stephanie has prepared for I know that it will not only surprise and nourish my palate but that it was created with a tremendous amount of heart.

Chef Sacha has prepared meals for me on several occasions. Whether a special event or dinner party, he always takes great care to ensure that the ingredients used are in season, and of quality. He is understanding and willing to accommodate any food allergies or aversions, and provides options for those with specialty diets. His twist on French classics creates flavor combinations that are tasteful and surprising, while his take on American bistro fare elevates your childhood favorites. His meals are always delicious, and the presentation impeccable. I highly recommend Chef Sacha for any of your culinary needs.

Meg prepared meals for us weekly for the past year, and her food is scrumptious! In addition to cooking really delicious meals, she tailored our menus to fit some fairly complicated dietary restrictions. The dishes were flavorful, complex, and satisfying. If you are lucky enough to hire her, you won't be disappointed!
