We wanted to schedule a cooking lesson as a birthday gift for our 17 year old son, who says he would like to attend culinary school after he receives a PhD in Chemistry, and Chef Rocco was truly a perfect match! Throughout the entire process (interviewing, scheduling, and instructing) Chef Rocco was friendly and attentive, and his calm and organized style set the tone for a very relaxing yet educational session of making pasta (and a sauce, of course!) from scratch. He continuously made sure that each of us had ample time and opportunity to practice every skill that he demonstrated. He provided both specific and practical guidance, and he delivered limited but valuable critique in a very kind, thoughtful, and encouraging way. While he instructed and engaged each of us in making the recipes, Chef Rocco not only tailored the lesson to our son's interest (and our goals for the session) but also treated our son as if he was already on his way to becoming a chef. Whether it is true remains unseen, but Chef Rocco clearly understands the essence and effect of good teaching. As for the homemade fettuccini pasta with fresh vegetable sauce? Magnifico! It was so good that we ordered the pasta attachments for our Kitchen-Aid mixer!
Great food and great experience. The two chefs working our holiday party couldn't have been kinder or more patient. Everyone loved the food, and the boss told me after they left that she would like to bring them back again next year. Thank you for a lovely experience!
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!
I can't speak enough about how great my experience was with Kitchenina. I came across their website while searching for a caterer online for an upcoming holiday party. Aliki was not only very easy to talk to, but also very helpful in offering suggestions on how to make the party and menu better. She is truly invested in all her customers. She works well with all budget sizes (mine was on the low end) and delivers the best quality. She threw in additional items free of charge and was very flexible in what she can provide. Her husband, who is the head chef, is ready to customize any of their menus. We were so impressed that we asked them to cater our daily lunches, which my team loved. Their food is healthy and delicious. The chef personally delivered the food and asked how everything is going, which speaks volumes about their dedication to customer satisfaction. I spoke to my family about Kitchenina and now we will ask them to also cater our family parties! A big thank you to Kitchenina for providing such amazing food and service!
From set up to finish, our meal was not only attractively displayed, everythingwas delicious. The chef's choice meatballs were the main hit of the afternoon. We will definitely use Passionate Plates again and again.
Having worked with a few different chefs, with varying results, I can enthusiastically recommend Chet Chase! From start to finish, working with him was a pleasure. Prior to my event, Chet proactively responded to my requests, suggesting options, working with my budget and numbers - and adjusting the menu when my numbers changed. During my event, Chet and his assistants were thorough, on-time, organized, adding an item on the fly, and provided a seamless experience. And something I have not seen from other chefs - clean, stocked with their own cleaning supplies, and left the kitchen as clean as it ever was. I will definitely be using Chet Chase for my next event!
Daniella was extremely professional, her food was tasty and it was loaded with veggies. I was nervous beforehand as I have never hired a personal chef before, but Daniella assured me that all would be well. I really appreciated her warm and grounded energy. I also liked that she explained the menu and ingredients to my party. Her staff person was also competent and had good energy too.
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
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 !
I struggled keeping up with the massive amounts of paper coming through my home and office. It was to the point where my mail was creating unnecessary clutter robbing me of my much needed space. The best decision I could have made was to hire Theres no space like home to assist in this paper management problem that was bringing me down. Theres no SPACE like HOME not only organized my space, they created an efficient, functional system tailored specifically to my needs and habits for managing my household and handling all the paperwork. I learned that regular maintenance requires simple, efficient and quick routines to keep it in good condition. I strongly recommend There's No SPACE Like HOME for all your home and office organizational needs. They have truly made a profound difference in my life.
Angela is an exceptional caterer! We hired her for a long (10 day) job for a production crew, serving multiple meals for VERY hungry people. I heard consistently that they were the best meals the crew had ever had on a job. She was very thorough in her choices, and made it obvious that she takes pride in what she cooks, plans, and serves. We plan to make Angela our go-to caterer for ALL future jobs. As much as I would love to tell you to stay away so we can hoard her...you HAVE to hire Angela and try her meals for yourself!
Absolutely the best ever food service and presentation. I have hosted over A dozen dinner parties in the last two years with three different chefs. I will only use Lucas going foreward!!
PhiestyFoods is a winner!!! My wife keeps thanking me for giving her such a wonderful party on her birthday. The smartest thing I did was inviting Chef Cheri into our home. She came to our home and asked a lot of questions about our tastes in food and color scheme and our budget. After taking all of our desires in she proceeded to describe all that she could do for us and it all sounded so wonderful and she put some high expectations into our minds. The day of the party came and not only did she deliver, she exceeded our expectations! My guests were very happy also as many of them asked for her contact info so they could talk to her about future events. My advise, hire Chef Cheri, you’ll be happy you did!
I wish he can cook for me everyday.My own personal chef.. Why he leave me thirsty for more of his delicious scrumptious meal
Jon, and his assistant Danny, catered a sit down dinner for 24. The menu included several appetizers, salad, Filet Mignon and lobster with fingerling potatoes and veggies, and a homemade raspberry filled buttercream cake (as requested) for my husbands 70th birthday. Everything was perfect!!!!!! Exceeded our expectations. Not only was everything amazing but Jon and Danny couldn’t have been any nicer. Several of my guests are already arranging to use them for their upcoming events. We would definitely use them again. They made my husbands 70th so special. Could t be happier.
Chef Sophie did a birthday dinner party for 6 in San Francisco and was a complete gem! She always got back to me quickly, worked with me regarding guest dietary restrictions and created a delicious menu that everyone enjoyed - AND was fun addition to the party. I'd fully recommend her.
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
She helped clean out my two BR/ 1 Bath unit. They did a great job getting rid of some bathroom water stains and tile grout muck! She helped cleaning our windows glass . Friendly,Reliable finish in the promised. Thank you very much Bay Area Maids Services.
From the tasting to the delivery to the actual wedding reception meal- every aspect- was excellent! Carmen is an incredible chef, Hector a fantastic delivery set-up person, and Gustavo a professional reliable business owner!
I am a total novice in the kitchen, especially when it comes to cooking meats and improvising without recipes. Bryson was knowledgeable, funny, patient and kind during our cooking lessons. Not only did he show me knife skills and some great tools for whipping up quick meals, but I now have the confidence to cook at home and for dinner parties! I highly, highly recommend Bryson, even if you are already a competent cook and would like to have some fun, he is the BEST. Highly recommend him! Also, his food is DELICIOUS...ask him to show you how to make his famous drop biscuits, or his carnitas tacos.
In contract with Classic Cuisine Catering . Chef Kolnita has been very responsive. She has helped us build a great menu as per our liking for the event within a short time period. We are looking forward to our event this week.
