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!
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.
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.
Jose and Anita were truly amazing! Our request was last minute and they were not only responsive but very helpful. We had a bachelorette dinner for a girlfriend and they came through within 24 hours of the request they were cooking dinner for 7 us. Dinner was very delicious and filling. We were completely spoiled! I would definitely reach out to Jose and Anita next time we are looking for a private chef option. Thanks again!
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!
We absolutely loved our french cooking lesson with Mashav! She created a custom menu for the class based on our suggestions and fresh local ingredients. She walked us through each step carefully and answered all of our questions. The final result -- 4 made-from-scratch french dishes -- was phenomenal. To top it all off, Mashav was very organized and easy to plan the class with.
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!
After many events at ITK for numerous organizations I am part of, it's my pleasure to share how wonderful each has been. I have held, make your own, learn a lesson or come watch cooking event's. Each has been a huge success and everyone wants to come back! If you are thinking of working an Event there, you won't be disappointed!
Jess taught a cooking class for my sister's bachelorette party, and did a fabulous job. All the food was delicious, she included everyone, and she tailored the class to fit our lack of experience. We all learned so much and had a great time, as well! I highly recommend her.
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!
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!
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.
We hired Jessica to come and cook for us for my intimate bridal shower this year (about 20 people) and she knocked it out of the park! Not only was she a pleasure to work with, but she made us a delicious and healthy spread with lots of options for everyone's tastes and dietary preferences. She worked with me to come up with a perfect menu and I still dream of the carnitas she made that day! We even ended up getting a mini cooking lesson from Jessica - because everyone was so interested in what she made, she took the time to explain everything and my guests couldn't stop chatting with her! She's so engaging and clearly passionate about what she does, I'd recommend her for any event and for cooking lessons too!
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.
Bryson is a very knowledgeable, and extensively friendly teacher who puts his students' learning as his highest priority. Happy to answer any questions you throw at him, it was eye-opening to see how much of a difference a few simple concepts can affect your cooking. His cooking is delicious, and by shock and awe, I was able to make some tasty morsels myself.
I took a cooking class with Inbal and a small group of friends and was very satisfied by the experience. Inbal is extremely knowledgable and was very gracious and answered all of our silly questions. There was so much very basic info we didn't know! The biggest benefit for me was learning how to keep cooking simple. I tend to over think things and end up getting overwhelmed. Cooking isn't as scary anymore. I would definitely recommend her classes.
Last week I hosted a dinner using Classic Cuisine and me and my guests absolutely loved Kolnita and her cooking. Everything tasted amazing and getting to know her and her recipes was an A+ experience. Definitely recommending her catering service to my friends and colleagues!
I must admit that I was a bit skeptical about raw foods, BUT Chef Tena *truly* changed my mind (and body). She has an innate talent, not only with recipe creation, and food preparation, but also with making food *beautiful.* I didn't have any real favorites, since they were ALL over-the-top delicious! Her foods make by body SING and feel ALIVE!
Chef Cregg cooked a private dinner at my house for myself and 13 guests. It was, in a word, amazing. Cregg was professional and gregarious, the food was immaculate, and the service was taut. I would highly recommend.
I was looking for a caterer for a party, so I tried Thumbtack. I received quotes from five people, but the moment I read Patricia's suggested menu I knew I was going with her. The venue did not have a prep kitchen or even a oven for that matter, but it did not phase her. Even when I requested a "sampling" of the menu a few weeks before the event she was on top of it. The day of the party she was right on time. The food looked great and the guests all enjoyed the wonderful meal. The only reason for the 4 stars was due to the staffing. There were two people setting up and helping serve. They were not very experience and it showed. I think with a more professional staff I would have would given 5 stars!
I am creating a personalized foodie experience for every occasion. I was trained by the Le Cordon Bleu art. I make menus just for your special occasions.
