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!

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.

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.

Michelle cooked a lovely dinner for my husband's birthday last week. She showed up with hand-printed menus, flowers and amazing serving boats (we did mole tacos three ways--mole, mole, mole!). She was cheerful, professional and a great cook! Highly recommend.

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!

I have thoroughly and consistently enjoyed Laura's gourmet cooking over many years. At one point, I was on a very restricted diet, and Laura's cooking made the experience a delight. She has a remarkable facility with a variety of cuisines, with a special talent for Italian.

OMG David is an amazing chef! My husband and I had David prepare 3 dinners for us, to help us eat healthier but still have tasty meals. David prepared AMAZING! meals -- he did some prep before he came and then just did the finishing touches at our house. He also offered to do it all at home but we wanted to see how he did some of it. We will be using David again soon!

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!

So glad we found Dan's company on this website. From the first point of contact he was completely on top of everything. At first we wanted to have a cooking class, but after talking with him about the other types of experiences he could offer, we went with a demonstration/dinner party which was so much better than an actual class. We went with the Cotogna inspired menu and got to learn just as much, while spending time with our friends drinking wine. Perfect night!

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!

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.

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!

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!
