I don't even know where to begin. Chef Pete and his crew were TOP NOTCH. We had our 12/9/2017 wedding at the Historic 16th Street Train Station in Oakland, and there were dozens of challenges about the space. No running water, no electricity, the rooms are made of marble so the atmosphere inside runs cold, you can only access the space with the property manager by appointment only, etc etc etc. Chef Pete went above and beyond our expectations with the food. We had a few big time food snobs (we had a Rockefeller and a Hewlett of HP at our wedding, among many others) and they were praising the food to no end. People stopped me ALL night to tell me how wonderful the food was. Chef Pete created amazing dishes for nearly 200 guests. Chef Pete not only provided the best food imaginable, he filled in a tons of gaps with a crew of servers, bartenders, etc. He was the whole package. Highly recommend his services!!!
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!
Sat is an amazing and talented Chef. He is creative knowledgable and passionate about his work. I enjoyed and learned a lot doing Spring and Fall cleanse with him. I would highly recommend him as a chef or nutritional coach.
We had a wonderful experience. Debbie was warm, professional, and an excellent chef. Ask for the chicken parm!
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.
I had the pleasure of having Chet Chase cater for me in Florida. Chet catered numerous corporate events for me in my showroom in the Design Center of The Americas. He could cater a luncheon for 10 or a dinner for 25.Everyone always raved about him. His creations were delicious and his presentation superb. Chet also catered personal dinner parties in my home. He took care of everything from planning the menu to selecting party favors for me. Chet also helped me with my diet. He prepared lunches and dinners for me that were tasty and nutritious.I am not an easy person to please but when it comes to Chet Chase he is tremendous when it comes to cuisine and planning
Great food! Chef Graham did a superb job and is so personable. We would definitely hire him for our next party!
This was our first time having a chef for a house party with ~15 guests, and I highly recommend Graceful Kitchen! Chef Grace was able to accommodate our request for vegetarian food, and presented us with several good choices. She was there ahead of time, and the food, esp. the pasta, received good feedback from everyone that attended. I will use Graceful Kitchen again for future events.
Daniella did a great job for my family. we had two events a memorial for my mother-in-law and a Thanksgiving meal for the family the following day since we were all in town. From the time we were contacted by Daniella through Thumbtack and started to discuss the events Daniella was very helpful and flexible. We have a couple vegan diets in the family and Daniella came up with wonderful dishes for them, everyone enjoyed. I have no hesitation in recommending Daniella to anyone planning a special event. And just a bit on my background I have over 45 years in the food service field.
Chef James is an artist. Good chefs are. He is also an excellent teacher – in all the best aspects of the word. He explains the foundation of what he is doing. He repeats and demonstrates basic cooking concepts in different ways to make sure ALL of his class catches on. He talks about cooking theory – but reduces it to immediate practice. His lesson about the difference between taste and flavor was perfect (you need to talk with Chef James). More importantly he lets the class do the work and learn. How awesome is that. Oh yes, you and your friends (or family) have fun.
Rose Johnson & her entire crew were fantastic! We hired her for a 50th wedding anniversary party that we were hosting in our backyard for about 50x guests. She's great with communication - she was quick to get us a quote, a sample menu, and walk us through what she would need/suggest for the day of the event. She was very flexible, and easily accommodated my mother-in-law's low sodium diet requirement. Most importantly though, her food was wonderful! Her appetizers were plentiful, and the main course & sides were delicious. I was worried about having dried out food (as we were doing a buffet), but the food was cooked perfectly. She kept me on budget, and really, she went above & beyond what I expected from a caterer! Her staff were friendly with the guests, they helped pour drinks, set up chairs, and left my kitchen clean at the end of the night!! I would recommend her to others in a heartbeat!
We had a small dinner party (10 people) at our home and hired Rainbow Chefs to make the appetizer, dinner and dessert. It was amazing! We'll definitely recommend to all our friends and can't wait for our next event. Highly recommended!
I had family in-town and so I hired James to cook us a special dinner over Labor Day weekend. On fairly short notice, he put together several menu options that were friendly to a variety of different diet restrictions and preferences. I had the hardest time choosing what to have, but James was very accommodating and responsive! We had a very diverse menu of tuna poke, calamari, lobster salad, rib eye, and cauliflower. Additionally, I requested a special dessert at the last minute and he was more than happy to accommodate. Highly recommend James for his expertise in what he does and his professionalism. Would hire him again in a heartbeat!
Angela was very helpful right from the beginning. Once she and I spoke, determined a budget, she proposed some wonderful selections, and the evening was divine. Having a few people who have gluten-free diets, the menu planning was extremely important to me - and every item was gluten free AND delicious! Angela is able to help rent anything you need, so that isn't a worry. She has a wonderful assistant who is warm and friendly. I would highly recommend Angela's business for your catering event.
Zachary created a wonderful event for me. The food was sophisticated and executed beautifully. He worked with me to craft a menu that would be special for all my guests including those with special diets. Thank you!
I didn’t take pictures to show you guys but Cheri did an excellent job on my fiancé’s and my dinner for two. Not only did the food taste great but the set up was very nice. We had no hesitation hiring her for our upcoming June 2019 wedding! She will give you quality food for an affordable price. Not to mention she also has other vendors if your looking to have her company cater your wedding. She puts time and detail into her creations. I definitely 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
I've had the pleasure of having Debbie cook for my husband and I in our home and highly recommend her as a personal chef. Debbie's cooking is light, healthy and deeply flavorful. She cooks with fresh herbs and vegetables -- easily tailoring a meal to my preferences and what we have available in our pantry. She is meticulous in the kitchen and in the presentation. The final plate looks as fantastic as it tastes.
"We recently hired Chef Rhonda for a dinner party I hosted in San Francisco for my husband 40th birthday. To say that Chef Rhonda exceeded our expectations is a complete understatement. Her attention to detail, relaxed and engaging personality, and culinary excellence all contributed to a very memorable evening. And FOOD....yes the FOOD.......amazing, or as Rhonda refers to it, "pretty straightforward." It was anything but straightforward. I knew we were in for a treat when Rhonda showed up at 11am to prepare for a 7pm dinner. Thank you Rhonda for an incredible evening."
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!
Meg is an amazing chef, and someone I would absolutely recommend! Meg has been the head chef on several outdoor yoga retreats that I have attended, making amazing and flavorful meals with conditions that are less than ideal : o) She has also been my personal chef for the better part of a year, and delights us each week with recipes that fit our needs, nutritional desires, and family dynamic. Meg is friendly and warm, and also exceptionally dedicated to making sure that her recipes and dishes are a good fit for her clients. She prepares food with love and care, and it shows!
