Stephanie did a wonderful job with a special order cake. She was prompt, professional - and makes a wonderful dessert. I would hire her again in a second. You should, too.

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!

Well as you can tell by all the reviews below - Don and Stacy are amazing. We initially set out to hire a caterer to just do appetizers for our wedding at Triple S Ranch in November. We were serving Paella for our main course but did not have anything to serve during cocktail hour. We went for a tasting at their kitchen and were blown away by the food. Don makes his own buratta... it is SO good. THEN when we realized we were also going to need to hire staff to bus tables etc. Stacy and Don came to the rescue again. They and their staff stayed for the entire event even though they only catered the cocktail hour. We also ended up hiring them to do Pizza at our rehearsal dinner and to cater our farewell brunch. All three meals were amazing - people are still talking about the food and how wonderful Stacy and Don were.

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 Alejandra recently catered a wine tasting for 40 people for us in SF. Under less than ideal conditions (crowded room, minimal equipment and high guest expectations) she delivered wave after wave of delicious and perfectly paired food. She was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish, and I would recommend her and her team without hesitation. Excellent value!

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.

    Hello, I work with Ghilotti Brothers, our office is located in San Rafael CA. We are trying to put together a class to show our employees how to make/cook easy, simple and healthy meals. We are looking for someone who can give us information about the food we need to be healthy, which ones are better to eat if we are going to be sitting down for 8 hours and which ones to eat if we are going to be active out on the field. We will need someone to come and give us a short class/workshop and perform a couple simple recipes in front of the class. Please let me know if this is possible and how much you charge for these services. We need your services some time in March. Thank you.
