Chef Jose did a great job catering our group of 12 people. He was very flexible with the menu and was able to deliver out the place we were staying outside of Santa Rosa. The 2 entrees, appetizer, sides and dessert were delicious. Would definitely higher again.

About

Christian, simply put, it the most professional and talented chef you’re going to meet! I am the owner of JK FoodCrush (www.jkfoodcrush) , a SF based dinner Pop Up business. My partner and chef resigned less than 24 hours prior to our dinner event where I sold over 50 tickets. After talking to several advisors, thumbtack.com was recommended to me as an option. I signed in and made my selections and criteria. Within 1 hour, I received an email from Christian. I explained my dire situation - that I needed a chef, staff, food, prep etc. in less than 24 hours for 7pm Sat. Keep in mind Christian and I first talked around 10am. The big looming question was – is this possible? Can we do this? After several discussions, Christian said yes, it was possible but we’d have to change the menu in order to procure the food; we would have to secure staff and other details. Christian and I were in constant communication throughout the day into late evening and into the following day. For my part, I emailed every single customer to notify the change in chef and menu – we only had 6 cancellations and those were filled by last minute buyers as I kept the ticketing open for the entire event. Christian pulled off an amazing dinner replete with a multi-course of Smoked Sweet Potato Soup; Salad of Truffle, Duck and Grain; Chicken Marbella; Braised Oxtails etc. (http://www.jkfoodcrush.com/darn-good-food/). The event went off without a hitch and the 50+ customers had a great time! The dinner was a success and it was all thanks to Christian! Visit our site to check out the pics! More than a highly skilled and technically talented chef, Christian is the consummate professional. Christian communicates, he follows up, he understands the sense of urgency, he is responsible, he takes pride in his work and reputation, he is proficient with numbers ie excel and the technicalities of reading contracts. He’s familiar with Square, Pay Pal, banking transactions and providing cost breakdowns and agreements. You would be surprised how many chefs are not. With the success of my previous event, I contacted Christian for a private event called PandoDaily’s CEO Supper Club. (http://www.jkfoodcrush.com/pandodailys-ceo-supper-club-march-19/). Check out the video for yourself. The ravioli and lamb dishes – HUGE HITS! Christian will be cooking for my next event on April 20th – details are on the website if you’re interested! More than a chef, I have a true business partner who understands the importance of building brand recognition, reputation and a small business. With Christian, tell him your scope of project and he will get it done! I wish I could hire him as my private chef – the food is just out of this world! He’s the only number you need.

The Hidden Table can take the hassle and stress out of Sacramento and Tahoe area weddings, dinner parties and dinner time for the busy individual or family with personalized meal services and events. You and the chef will work together to design a menu that fits your needs and lifestyle. The menus are tailored especially for you because special care is taken to note your likes, dislikes, allergies and special diets. Here is what Jason said about the meal services: "I just wanted to let you know that we love the food this week. Don't get me wrong. Every week the food is great, but we are really enjoying the meals this week especially the pork with apricot. We really appreciate your services and just wanted to say thanks! " Chef Russ does catering for parties, weddings, large and small events. Your party or wedding will be attended to, from start to finish. He will prepare the food, serve and cleanup. There's no typical warmed-over catering food here. All the food that we offer are prepared and cooked on-site. The host and guests will be able to fully enjoy the party and not have to worry about anything.

Very easy to work with Jennifer. She was communicative and helped shape the menu to our tastes. On the day of the event, she was prompt and very flexible with prep and service. The price was right and most importantly, the food was delicious. She is a quality chef who will work with you as a client. Well done, Jennifer, well done.

Ruthy's Real Meals are tasty, healthy and locally sourced with organic meats and vegetables. Her menus are varied and well thought-out. The convenience of online ordering and door-step delivery is more than worth the reasonable price. As a single person, her generous portions allow me to take the second half to work as my next day's lunch - an additional time- and money-saving. Ruth herself is personable as well as professional. She goes the extra step to accommodate special dietary needs or no-nos. Finding her gourmet food service was a god-send for me and I couldn't be more pleased with the food or the convenient process. I highly recommend Ruth and Ruthy's Real Meals!

David and his wife arrived early, set up and quickly served a most delicious meal for 10. We did not need to do anything, they set everything up for us. The food was delicious and they left us some bags of their signature granola upon their departure. I would highly recommend David and will use him again when I return to Napa.

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.
