  • Sara's Seasonal Eats

    (10 reviews)

    I specialize in organic, vegetarian cooking, be it in the form of cooking lessons or catering and private events. I have studied nutrition and am generally passionate about wholesome and tasty meals, full of color, creativity and nourishment. I have over 3 years of experience working as a catering manager for a retreat center, so am confident in creating meals for large and small groups and can work with varying budgets. California is blessed with so many varieties of fruits and vegetables that are available practically year-round that it's so easy to get inspired by a trip to your local farmer's market. I love teaching people how easy it is to make a vegetarian meal and love seeing people learn and get excited about where their food comes from. I can come to you for lessons as a private chef or for your event. I'm happy to help!

  • Leslie Cooks!

    (5 reviews)

    I am a private chef who cooks healthy and delicious dinners on a several-day-a-week basis for clients. I deliver in the local area. My clients are those who can't, don't like to or don't want to cook, and I can fill that gap with ease, relying on your input, tastes, dietary issues, etc. I can stock your pantry, teach you cooking basics and consult with you on anything "food". I will travel 20 miles for a one-time catering for a party, but for my personal chef services on a regular basis. When I deliver food, I need to stay local (about 8 miles). I also I cater parties, either buffets or sit-down meals, for up to 40 guests. I don't eat or cook red meat, just a personal preference, but I do cook low-carb, great tasting food. Monthly, I am the chef at Le Secret Supper, a social/dining experience at which I cook a themed dinner of six courses and guests (up to 20) gather at a restored, vintage beach cottage in Venice. Ask for info and an invite! We're now in our 4th year, and it's always a great time for singles, couples, new friends, etc. I hope to talk to you soon! Ask about my menu list for more info.

Thumbtack Spotlight

A Good Place To Eat Catering

(30 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I love the satisfaction I feel when an event is completed and the customer is gracious enough to tell me how great their event has turned out. I am passionate about preparing food that makes people feel good and totally satisfied.

I am grateful to meet different people and becoming apart of their special moment; being able to serve in them in this way brings a smile to my soul. There is a scripture in the bible that talks about a banquet and people being invited, I always feel that each event is living out that scripture, being able to see the smiles and laughter on people's face, seeing the good times food brings, seeing how food brings people together and warns their souls. I don't have enough words to describe how that makes me feel to express!

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

We invited some friends over for dinner one night and they were so blown away with the meal that they suggested I cater their wedding. At that time, I worked for a large corporation in a totally different field but always had a deep passion for food and the creativity behind it all; so I said yes!

I prepared Spinach and Feta Stuffed Chicken Breast with a Chardonnay Cream Sauce, Creamy Mashed Potatoes and Parmesan Crusted Asparagus. After that wonderful event, I was hooked!! I believe I found my expression for life and I want people to experience it when they sit down at your table
