    Amy K.

    Chef Emmaneulla was very accommodating and professional. You can see and taste that she truly takes pride in her dishes. She was very responsive, organized and open to input when planning the menu, always looking for seasonality in her dishes. I had a group of very discerning clients who work with some of the finest restaurants out there. They were impressed and satisfied. Thank you again for the amazing meal!

  3. #3 Wine Country Feasts

    (2 reviews)

    Erin M.

    I am a wedding planner from Carmel. I took to the country with all of my dearest friends and wanted to gift everyone with a beautiful feast of an evening in honor of my love's birthday. Amber was not only a perfect fit because she was extremely easy and fun to work with ahead of time. She was creative, calm, timely, organized, and very talented. The evening was effortless for me and each of our loved ones weredazzled by the food. I swam in the river right up until appetizers were served, that's amazing. Oysters and cheeses through to salad, dressings, salmon, pork, potatoes, vegetables and dessert, each lovingly prepared and served...completely delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed her presence and all of our self-proclaimed foodie crowd more than appreciated the flavors and presentation. If I were YOU, reading this, I would suggest that you express no hesitation and move forward to work with Amber. You will be impressed. There aren't may people in this world with as warmly composed a personality. Thank you, Chef!

    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.

  6. #6 David The Personal Chef

    (1 reviews)

    Lee T.

    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.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Brass Spatula Personal Chef & Catering Service

(14 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

There really isn't much that I don't love about my job! I have the opportunity to do what I love everyday and make people happy doing it! I often get to help create beautiful memories with food for a special day like a birthday, anniversary or wedding day; it is always an honor to be a part of those events! I love that I get to cook with the bounty of food in Sonoma County and create new dishes everyday. I love that I meet the most amazing people everyday. In some small way, I get to make a difference in their lives whether it's to nourish a busy family with a weeknight meal, cook an elegant dinner for a group of friends on vacation or cater a wedding for 100 guests. Each day is unique and challenging, and I love it!

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

Like so many others, I have been cooking since I was a little girl. I was inspired by my grandmother’s ability to bring a community together with her delicious food. The kitchen has always been my favorite place; I love to create beautiful food. I love to feed people. In 2004, I was in a car accident; it was a life-changing moment, and it made me realize that life is too short not to do what you love! It inspired me to start my own business so I could create more time with my family and do what I felt passionate about! It was the best decision I ever made. When you are passionate about what you do, people respond in the most wonderful way. I am still inspired everyday to create beautiful food and to bring people together to enjoy it!

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.
