Marcel was amazing! It was a five star experience from the service he offered, to the food he cooked, to the time he took to prep for my event. We had two chefs at my event who were amazed and very impressed with his cooking! I highly recommend him!

Thank goodness for chefs like Mark who cook the way you want, and need, to eat when the last thing you want to do is cook for yourself when you're ill. I'm so greatful to have been introduced to him when I needed it the most. Mark is a great guy who cares about your healing. He's prepared the most healthy and delicious dishes. He'll work with you so that every dish delivered is what you like. And his selection is so broad that you won't eat the same thing again and again. Though some times you'll wish you did!

Peter was a D R E A M to work with! We used Weho Sausage & Cathering Co for our recent wedding in Brentwood and we couldn't have been happier. Not only was the food impeccable, but Peter assisted with the complete set up of our event. He is a talented chef and talented party planner. So happy to have found Peter and will be using him again undoubtedly!

Chef Lofthouse is incredible. He catered my 26th birthday party and fed 32 famished twenty somethings. Everything was amazing from the stuffed mushrooms to the bbq sliders! He was prompt, responsive and immensely attentive. I never saw an empty tray the entire night. This allowed me to relax and enjoy the party because I knew that he was 100% on top of it. We all know how hard it is to let go when you're hosting a party because you want everything to be great and your guests to be happy. I don't think I've ever had a party run as smoothly as this one and Chef Lofthouse was a big part of that. I will not only be hiring him again but I've already referred him to all my friends and clients. Thank you for a great night Chef!

We just had a tasting with this private chef and it was simply great. Just upscale enough and everything was delicious. Even ingredients I didn't think I liked, I loved! She is very talented, a lot of fun -- and can she ever cook! She went went way over and above my expectations, which were already high. A gem.

Segars culinary did a phenomenal job last night catering a very special dinner. Their attention to detail and ability to combine art and food in one amazing meal was second to none. They far exceeded our expectations and I would - and WILL - have them again to cook again soon. Without a question one of the best meals we have had in memory.

Dana Rolland is by far one of the greatest caterers, culinary designer and consummate private dining professionals you'll come across. Without a doubt, the value provided by Dana and her spectacular team was immeasurable. The food, the service-level by the server, bar tender, chef, and of course, Dana herself: all top-notch. My annual event was scheduled for 4pm (way too early- go for 6pm or later for a Sat eve in December) and never have I felt like I can retreat from the common/party areas to get ready, shower, get dressed any earlier than 15 minutes before guests arrive due to last minute prep, but Dana took the reigns; She knew where and what details to fine-tune, and gave me the peace of mind to know my home, the food, and all preparations would be handled. If you're looking for the "go above and beyond to service the client" attitude- pick, Dana. The staff was clean, respectful, accomodating for guests and very well-spoken. Outside of service-level, Dana's rates are beyond fair. Look no further for event and catering service. We host this same event on an annual basis, among others and plan to hire Dana again and again. Simply: I can't express how much I appreciate Dana and her staff for delivering a five-star event.

Chef David is truly one of the best in the biz. His flavors are layered with so much complexity and subtlety, it's almost too good to be true! Always friendly and very professional, I'd trust him with my taste buds anytime. Thank you for such a great meal and a supremely outstanding experience!

Shelly not only makes vegan cooking simple and delicious, she provides the tools and tricks you need to prepare meals for your family! She teaches with love and passion and educates the public about plant-based nutrition and provides the info you need to make the switch from omnivore to vegan or enhance your current vegan lifestyle. I have been vegetarian for 20+ years and vegan for 9 years and I learned so much from Shelly just from one class! I can’t wait to learn more, as she has so much to offer and an entire cook book worth of recipes in her head to impress any chef!

The lesson's provided by Chef Travis far exceeded my hopes and expectations! He answered every one of my questions and created videos to demonstrate his techniques. We had lessons using Skype, so we were able to chat and demonstrate skills throughout the lesson. The time spent in his lessons were extremely valuable and lots of fun! Anyone wanting to learn kitchen techniques would be happy to have lessons with Chef Travis!!

We have tried numerous delivery services and chefs and none have ever come close to what we have with Kim. She has been our personal chef (we are a family of 4 with varied tastes and all of us are foodies).. We are amazed at the variety of choices she has given us.. including all types of ethnic foods. She is very attentive to our likes and dislikes. In addition, she has been extremely responsive to our requests and punctual with her delivery. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
