Pam came over and provided us private instruction in our home on basic cooking skills. Pam did a great job. We will be hiring again this next weekend to help us with preparing for Thanksgiving since it will be our first time cooking everything ourselves. I would recommend Pam to anyone looking for cooking instruction.
When my son (9 yr old boy) expressed to me he wanted to be a contestant on Chopped Jr. I made it my goal to get him prepared. I contacted Traveling Chef and immediately my son's goals became a his goals as well. Travis arrived on time, and was very detailed when explaining how to pick produce and meats. Like many 9 yr old boys it's usually hard to keep him focused, however he was engaged from start to finish. Travis was very patient and allowed my son to be very hands on which made for an excellent lesson. The food was amazing, my son was very proud of his accomplishments, and he left the kitchen spotless. I can't wait until my son's next lesson. Every mom should take a day off and allow dinner to be prepared by their children and Chef Travis.
I planned a personal cooking lesson for my boyfriend's birthday, and couldn't have asked for a better experience! Chef Keith took time to get to know exactly what we were looking for, and he was flexible in creating our personalized 3 course menu. He showed up to my house on time, and was prepared with all of the food and cooking tools. He even cleaned up afterwards and left my kitchen spotless. The food was amazing! Chef Keith is very knowledgable about cooking. I would highly recommend hiring Chef Keith! It was absolutely worth it!!
I am very impressed with Annabel's work! She not only baked the most artistic cake, but also delicious! I ordered 3 cakes from her last October 7 and each one was unique, creative, and delicious. Annabel listened to my needs and also added her own personal touch to the cakes. She was very responsive, professional, and just went above and beyond. The cakes were a little pricey compared to your regular bakery or store bought cake but it's worth every penny. The 3 cakes that I ordered were customized and one cake was a bit complicated due to allergies but I was willing to pay for the extra price. I am a happy customer and I will surely order again from Annabel Sweet Novelette Cake. And you should too!
Elaine helped my daughter and I with cooking lessons and menu ideas that would work with both of our dietary issues. We spent an afternoon together - through the magic of web cams. We prepared a vegetable lasagna, a spinach and strawberry salad, the most amazing miso soup ever and a squash and edamame treat that was out of this world. The dishes we prepared were made from fresh, organic ingredients that were gluten free, light on salt and most importantly quick and easy to prepare in our busy schedules. Elaine took every culinary and dietary issue of ours and came back with brilliant solutions. Elaine is knowledgeable and approachable with the ability to communicate what she knows without being preachy. I've ordered the Herblends seasonings, and she also has a cookbook. I'm very impressed her knowledge and abilities make great food and show us how she does it.
Chef Jay is such an amazing warm and kind spirit. Her food is prepared with love, and you can taste it! We have monthly cooking lessons with my son and myself and he LOVES it! Jay takes a fun scientific approach to explaining food, often giving my son the tips and tricks he needs to create all types of cool things like parmesan cheese foam and teaching him how to make rainbow mozzarella cheese for his homemade pizzas - something he found beyond amazing. I enjoy the variety she offers - vegetarian dishes for me and kid-friendly gluten free meals for my son. She has taught me so much about preparing food for my boy that he can safely eat and enjoy without getting bored, and for that I am grateful. If you'd like flavor-filled food and a chef who has the patience of a saint, you'll for sure find that in Jay. Oh yea, ask her to make her amazing fried mac & cheese!
I have had Will's cooking on a numerous of different occasions. And I must say Will has a real talent in the kitchen! He can make almost anything from scratch or make things that you don't think will taste good turn out to taste wonderful! My favorite dish he made was a chicken dish with a load of different seasonings. Every bite I had was so moist and tasty (in a good way)! I would highly recommend to try Will's cooking, at least once, you would not be sorry and definitely be pleasantly surprised with how flavorful his dishes taste. :)
I came here with a friend for cupcakes and tea. I loved that the cupcakes were small and we could each try a variety of flavors. The cupcakes were so cute and tasted great with the tea. The frosting wasn't too sweet, like other cupcake shops. We sat in the back room and the atmosphere was nice. The service was also great; we never needed to ask for anything. I only wish the front area had more room for customers who aren't holding events.
Tina has very good taste and she's very creative when it comes to whipping up some delicious meals. She has taught me the ways with cooking. She has the skills and just knows how to measure her ingredients. She definitely has the eye for cooking. Its her natural born talent. I definitely would hire Tina for catering, cooking lessons and anything that involves food. She's a delight to have around as well.
OK so this is one of those little secrets of LA that I hate to divulge but I can only use Baking With Melissa so much so I will let you in the know. She truly is amazing, as were the cupcakes! But most important and this is key people, she was the one thing the kids still talk about! The event Melissa helped us with had a variety of ages of kids participating and the fact that she appropriately engaged with them all and left them laughing, creating and engaged was simply priceless! Everything was so professional too, her adorable costume, her hair and makeup and her supplies were top of the line! I can not thank her enough for making our event better! She made boys and girls alike feel special and taught them all something new!
Marcello is extraordinary. I had my first lesson last week where I learned how to make an amazing, fresh sauce with zucchini, onions, mushrooms, and a little bit of olive oil. I didn't know I can make something so delicious yet so simple. Marcello really took the time to teach me the details of proper knife techniques, picking fresh ingredients, and proper cooking mechanics. I learnt so much in my first lesson, and I can't wait to have another lesson with him. Also, you get a lesson in Italian while you're at. This guy is great!

My name is Giulia, I was born in Italy and I've just moved to California. My hometown is Napoli, very well know for its traditional recipes and variations of other regional plates. My special dishes are most of all with pasta, especially pasta alla napoletana, carbonara, bolognese, seafood, pasta al forno (in the oven), and all sort of pasta with legumes and vegetables. Moreover, I can teach you how to prepare healthy but really tasty meat or fish dishes, vegetarian and Italian variations of Asian food as light Cantonese rise, noodles with vegetables and curry chicken. I can teach you how to make home made pasta, such as gnocchi and fettuccine, and share with you all the secrets I have learned through family's generations. Also, I can give you advice about the products to use for the real Italian taste! Italian language and culture. I will teach you Italian from the basis (depends on your level) starting from the alphabet and simple sentences. Grammar and conversation go together, because one is fundamental for the other. Other aims are the written and oral comprehension and learning about Italian culture like main historic facts, literature, music, cinema, recent events and cities.
I teach basic cooking techniques as well as healthy-style dishes for your family and friends or just for one. Easy, fast, and affordable meals are right in your own kitchen.
