Chef Sat came to our home and prepared an incredible dinner for our end of the year office party. We thought a private executive chef would be something very fun to try for our thirty guests. Chef Sat worked with me in advance on the personalized menu and delivered on an amazing dinner experience. Chef Sat was great and the food was divine. All of the guests raved how delicious all of the courses were. Sat made the first event hosted in our new home truly memorable. Thank you very much Chef Sat and Chefs Tyler and Ian. You guys are awesome.

A-Plus staff (chef/server and bartender) arrived early and went right to work as we had 175 guests. Bartender quickly organized the bar and made pitchers of signature drinks to get ahead of the coming rush of guests. Hot appetizers were prepared and served to hungry arriving guests. Great service by the A-Plus team. We will use again!

Rose Johnson Catering was my party partner for our son’s engagement celebration last weekend in Orinda. The party was a huge success, and Rose and her team deserve much credit for the success. Rose responded to my Thumbtack inquiry with a prompt, thorough, and reasonable bid. However, after viewing her beautiful website, I replied to Rose that while I personally thought her menus were perfection, my son had specified that he did not want the food for his party to be “too fancy.” I told Rose the party would be a casual afternoon affair on our deck and I feared her culinary talents would be wasted on my son and my husband. Rose persevered, pointing out in her reply that she could do a barbecue with a southwestern flavor. The food need not be "fancy," she observed, but it should be tasty. And she sent me a custom menu that my son, his fiancée, my sisters, my husband and I all proclaimed perfect, including seared medium rare tri-tip of beef with chimichurri sauce, grilled cilantro chicken with tortillas, chipotle laced potato salad, and Mexican rice, bean, and corn salad. But Rose did not stop with sending me the menu; she said she would use my kitchen and grill on my deck, ensuring the food would be fresh as well as tasty. And after I hired her, she came to my home to check out my kitchen, my deck, and my grill and advised me on renting and setting up dining rounds and serving tables, as well as how to ensure good traffic flow for 50 guests. Rose is a real party expert, and I am not, so her advice was very much appreciated. The day of the party, Rose, Floricel and Esteban arrived a full two hours early and took charge. I hired Rose Johnson Catering for the food, which they delivered beautifully. As it turned out, they helped with the entire party, going above and beyond in many instances and showing poise and flexibility in the face of surprises, like my son’s decision to give a speech and set off a round of champagne toasts before dessert. Rose poured the champagne herself. Several guests asked me during the party: Who catered this? Who is your caterer? I happily provided several referrals to Rose Johnson Catering. Guest comments about the food were very positive: Mike: “The tri-tip was great.” Helen: “The grilled chicken was fabulous.” Kay: “I loved the potato salad. And the guacamole was wonderful.” Liz: “So nice to have so many dishes gluten-free.” Cindy: “The brownies were amazing. I told them so.” Bill: “Those parfaits were a big hit.” Matt: “Great food! Great service!” There was plenty of food for 50 guests, even with 1/3 of them being hungry 20-something friends of my son’s from high school and college. We even had leftovers, which Rose packed up and left in my refrigerator, along with leaving my kitchen cleaner than she found it. My husband, son, future daughter-in-law and I made a brunch of the leftovers the next day, sharing the delicious food and happy memories of a wonderful party. Best of all, this was the first party I’ve ever hosted where I had a great time myself. I don’t think I’ll have another big party again without booking Rose Johnson Catering!

I cannot say enough nice things about Aurora Catering. The owners, Dawn and Marty are passionate about their business and the love of what they do is evident when you meet them. Chef Marty’s cuisine is original, fresh, delicious, and yet, he’s a master with classic dishes too. His culinary talent is truly marvelous! Dawn has an experienced eye for beauty and is able to transform an ordinary space into an incredibly exquisite setting. Dawn’s knowledge and “down to earth” personality makes working with her an absolute delight and, the client can be confident that every detail will be taken care of. I refer Aurora Catering to everyone I know because my own experience with them has been so positive and I trust that others will be equally as happy.

Rachel was very professional. She did whatever we asked her to do and more. Rachel took on the challenge to cut up a whole roasted pig. She did a beautiful job and was able to display the meat in a clever way. Rachel is a up and coming chef in this area. Do not hesitate to hire Rachel and her staff for your next party, you won't be sorry.

I've known Nancy for over 14 years now and have had the exquisite pleasure of enjoying her culinary creations multiple times each year. She is not just a cook; she is a highly skilled chef. Her incredibly distinguished palette alongside her creative combinations of complimentary flavors, her passion for the art of cooking, and her care for the people that she is serving makes for a truly delightful unforgettable experience that delights all of the senses. I could not recommend her more highly!

On December 23, 2015 approximately 40 Earlimart Seniors participated in its annual Christmas Dinner. Chef Albert and his sous chef prepared a delicious and nutricious meal. The seniors were very pleased with the meal as many "mmm's" and "this is gooood" were heard from the people seated at the tables. Chef Albert prepared a very tender roastbeef, so tender it melted in your mouth.He also introduced our seniors to eating kale. Rounding out the meal was a crisp green salad with cranberries and walnuts, mashed potatoes and dessert. The chefs were very gracious with the seniors - talking and mingling with them and even taking pictures. Everyone left with a smile on their face and a delicious meal in their tummy! We are looking forward to our next meal with Chef Albert- who is innovative and still provides a very satisfying meal. Kudos Chef !

Chef Eileen was the greatest! This was a first time experience for us, hiring a personal chef for a small group of 8. It was a bachelorette party and the best touch to start an otherwise amazing weekend. Chef Eileen was professional, extremely sweet and most of all our 4 course dinner was delicious! The entire group was happy!! We will certainly do business again in the future and I believe she even gained new clients from our experience. Thank you Chef Eileen!!! All the best, Jenett

I am a caterer living in the Sacramento area. My heritage is from the Middle East and Greece, which combined, offers you the "best of both worlds". I learned to cook from the tender age of seven by my mother, who was taught by her mother in Jordan. My Mediterranean blends and flavors of food is what makes me unique. I cook from the heart, which comes through in my culinary cuisines. I aspire to be on "Chopped" one day. My biggest joy in this world is feeding people, especially my family.
