Jose was a hit! New Years Eve guests at my vacation rental requested some references for a chef to prepare a special and meaningful dinner at the beach house. I spoke with a few chefs first and settled on 2 for my guest to contact directly. My guest later told me that she had hired Jose at JKS Catering. I asked her to let me know how everything went and whether she would recommend that I refer JKS Catering to future guests. She had nothing but great things to say about Jose , his service, and, most importantly, his delicious food! They settled on a together prior to the dinner. Jose was on time and delivered everything he promised he would. Jose just followed up with me and sent me a copy of the menu from the dinner, which I’ve posted below. Thanks again, Jose!

Everything about this event was stunning...the meal was simple, tasty, incredibly fresh, with local ingredients and beautifully prepared. Michelle was extremely professional, responsive, and managed all of our requests or changes. She added her own touches like hand written menus, fresh flowers and candles that made the evening that much better. I've hired a few professional chefs before and she was by far the best! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a personal chef experience.

So glad we hired Dan from Mise En Place for our most recent dinner party! After discussing options with him, we went with the Kokkari-inspired menu on his website. It tasted exactly like the dishes we've had there so many times. Amazing. We've already booked him for another party in a few weeks. So happy we found Mise En Place on Thumbtack — Dan's now our go-to home chef!

We hired Zachary to teach us how to make pasta. He suggested 3 different kinds of shapes and fillings. He was punctual to our home and came prepared with all the ingredients. The pasta turned out great and it was a fun experience overall. I would recommend anyone to take lessons with Zachary and/or hire him as a personal chef.

Ok the best way to describe Tom Hirsch is "Chef Extraordinaire" I wanted to do a food themed party and I chose Cuban dishes...not knowing much about Cuban food I left it to Tom to work it out and omg he really went above and beyond everything was prepared to perfection I even had a Cuban friend who wanted to meet this Cuban chef!!! I had 50 guests who gave Tom a standing ovation!! I was so overjoyed and pleased he is preparing a kosher meal for 30 guests on Sunday. I absolutely loved his cooking his manners and his service!!!

My husband forgot to tell me he had agreed to host a cocktail party for 40 guest only 8 days away. When I talked to Graham he said he was available and within a day he had a menu and some suggestions about the bar.Graham arrived at our apartment in S.F. 2 hours before the event and just made everything so easy and and gracious that the party seemed like it had been planned way in advance. Graham served small bites of very tasty canapes and wonderful french style sliders that satisfied everyone. The whole evening was a success from set up to clean up and I was able to enjoy being the hostess and not worry about anything. Graham makes eating good food a total joy and I look forward to catering future parties with him as the Chef. Carole

I hired Pete for my husband's 60th birthday... a 5 course sit down dinner for 14. Everything he turned out was creative, delicious and beautifully presented. He was extremely efficient and personable; very flexible and easy to work with when planning the menu. He arrived on time and took over my kitchen with great ease and confidence, as if he'd been there a hundred times. The timing of all the courses was impeccable. All the guests mentioned how impressed they were with him and with the food. I would highly recommend him as a personal chef for you event!

Viet-Thu cares about the ingredients she picks and the food she creates, and it shows through her cooking. She gives you an ultimate culinary experience yet grounds you with flavors that are familiar. Her background in nutrition and cooking makes her an extremely capable and professional chef. She is punctual, organized, and accommodating. Hire her for your next event and she will listen to your every request and deliver the meal that goes beyond.

We had Ona cook a Mother's Day brunch for 35 people. She was nothing but fabulous from start to finish. She was always very professional and her food was amazing. Everyone was full and happy at the end of the party (and raving about the food). Hiring Ona allowed us to enjoy the conversations and not work so hard. I wish I could hire Ona as my full time personal chef!

    My mother recently had a mini stroke, her Dr. advised her to switch to a plant based diet. She is supposed to be resting, my dad is doing the cooking and I'm afraid they are going to kill each other!! Just kidding, but it's very stressful for both of them right now. I live in LA and can't come up, and want to help them.
