Communication with Maggie was smooth, prompt and friendly. She catered our bridal shower for 20 people and her dishes were all met with rave reviews. Just from our discussion about the bride's love of travel and adventures she created a truly memorable menu which included: salmon ceviche shooters, fig and manchego flat bread with caramelized onions and goat cheese cheesecake with coconut, among other wonderful selections. Maggie assisted us in obtaining linens for our event and offered to pick up and return the linens as well. While at the event she was on hand, helpful and attentive. All in all, a job excellently done! .
Thomas came to our house to give my 14-year old daughter and I a private cooking lesson. He brought all the ingredients and did a wonderful job showing us techniques and giving us information on organic vegetables and grass-fed meat. We will be booking him again soon to continue to encourage my daughter to learn how to cook healthy and efficient meals. Thank you, Thomas! We can't wait for our next lesson! ~Cathryn M.
We had Dustin at our home on Saturday for a small intimate birthday dinner for my wife's birthday with a total of 7 guests. After doing a ton of research on having a chef come into our home for the evening, I decided to hire Dustin. All of the reviews he has are absolutely spot on. The evening could not have gone any better, our guests, my wife, myself were literally blown away. Dustin and I had co-collaborated on the menu over the course of a couple of weeks whereby he catered to every tweak I requested as this was a surprise for my wife and we settled on a six course dinner. Needless to say, the dinner was so well put together our guests asked for a second 6 courses... :^) The way the dishes were plated, the way that Dustin described each dish, the freshness of the ingredients (he had Ahi Tuna flown in from Hawaii for this meal) were all beyond my expectations. To wrap a complete bow on the evening, Dustin left our kitchen spotless, like seriously spotless. We just built a new home and my wife is very OCD when it comes to cleaning. Even she couldn't find something to wipe up, spray, sweep, etc... If you are seeking an unforgettable experience with a top notch chef and even better person, LOOK NO FURTHER. We can't wait to schedule our next meal with Dustin which we mad arrangements for early this summer.
Rob and his assistant Paul put on a great dinner and event for a group of 10 business school classmates and their spouses. It was held outdoors at a big table on our porch. The food was excellent and the menu Rob proposed turned out to be ideal for the group and the setting (outside on an early summer evening). Rob also handled all the wine, pairing the appropriate wine for each of the meal's four courses ...and he did that while providing the wine at cost, including some great wines and discounted prices. We were also grateful for the professional manner in which Rob and Paul handled the event, including impressive chef's uniforms and especially providing a description of courses before each one was served. That helped to make it a really special dinner and overall evening. They were also flexible on timing, subtly checking in at various points during the evening. And they did a really solid cleanup job ... it was great not to have to spend the traditional hour or two after the party to get the house back into shape. Rob and Paul will be our "go to" guys/Fly boys in the future.
We ordered Blue Apron for about 6 months and granted the recipes and food were fresh and delicious, the preparation and cleanup was really time consuming. Too much for couples who work full time. I found Nancy Sparrow's meal service on line and after two weeks, we are madly in love with the meals and customer service. Just heat and eat and throw your plate and silverware in the dishwasher. My Foodie husband gives Sparrow Kitchen 10 thumbs up, as do I. It's soooo much better and easier than Blue Apron, Hello Fresh, etc. worth every penny!
Leabeth was creative, reliable, flexible, and professional. We hosted a Kentucky Derby couples bridal shower for 35 people. Leabeth was instrumental in researching decorating ideas, coming up with a menu that fit our theme, and providing bartending service during the party. People raved about the food (especially the homemade ham and biscuit sandwiches). Leabeth made my day because I had time to actually enjoy my guests!
I was looking for an instructor to host cooking classes in my studio kitchen. Thumbtack has helped me to find two most desirable instructors that I looking for. Chef Caitlin is one of them. I am very happy with the communication with Thumbtack. It was easy to use their service. I will continue to use their service to find a pro in the future.
Chef Diane, I just wanted to email you to let you know that my son participated in a week long summer camp with you many years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. When it came time for my son to decide what to do after graduating from high school in May of 2012, he thought long and hard about it. I reminded him of how much he enjoyed your cooking classes and that sparked his interest again. Well, my son, now 18 years old, just graduated from Lincoln Culinary Institute in Columbia, MD! He works at Clyde's Tower Oaks Lodge in Rockville, MD and has just gotten his first entree on the menu there, Sauteed Duck Breast with duck confit, spaghetti squash, scrambled duck egg, fried tofu, bean sprouts, carrots, scallions, peanuts and "pad thai" sauce (pictures included). He has also had 2 appetizers on the menu previously, Barcat Oyster "Po' Boy" Crostini and Sauteed Chicken Livers. I just wanted you to know what an influence your kids camp/classes had on my son. Thank you, JoAnne K.
I have been working with Pam Vagnieres and her Nutri-Physique Nutrition and Exercise programs for several years. I found Pam through her healthy cooking classes, they are fantastic! You learn to cook healthy, amazing meals, while getting the nutritional information about the foods you eat via lecture and handouts, including lots of fabulous recipes. Pam literally spoon feeds you the best and latest nutritional information available in a way that is interesting, fun and critical if you want to be on a healthy path. You learn so much about what you should and shouldn't eat, it will truly change your life! She also offers private nutrition consultations and exercise programs that are tailored to each individual's needs. I would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone who is seeking the most current information on nutrition, help preparing healthy, delicious meals, and nutrition and exercise programs all leading to living a healthier way of life!
Chef Tony was great to work with! He came to my home to give a cooking lesson to my teenagers and taught them about technique, cooking styles, cutting basics and more. He was a pleasure to work with and both kids (16 yrs) enjoyed the cooking and the delicious meal! I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for someone to come to the house. I'm sure he'd do a great job catering as well.
Connor was so wonderful! We hired him to teach a cooking class at a bridal shower, and he was so much fun! He taught us how to make two delicious treats and helped make the party entertaining and fun! I will hire him again!! He took time to make sure we had the perfect menu and answered all of my questions leading up to the event, he made us feel like we were his only client (though I know he is busy) The girls are still talking about the party.
Chef Chuck is awesome. We had so much fun at his in home cooking class. Learned a lot and had some YUMMY food. If you are a foodie call Chuck!
Chef Coconati it was amazing super fun chef to see working. My catering become a cooking class for the same price and the food the food I'm still thinking on those dishes. One word to describe it excellent Hired him best choice ever
Kat was my personal yoga instructor and chef for almost a year before her departure from Milwaukee to Colorado. Let me say first, there is not a day that goes by without me missing her services. Kat is kind, compassionate and incredibly talented. Her yoga services allowed me as a true beginner to enjoy and feel the benefits of yoga. She was patient with me and a great teacher of positions that allowed my body to stretch and release. I am a stage two diabetic and the yoga had a profound effect upon my condition for the good. After learning that Kat had head chef talents, I asked her to come twice a week to my home and prepare meals for myself and my son. The meal plans were excellent and the food, well, there are few fine restaurants that could compete. Kat was very fair with the economics of the work as well. It made for pleasant meals when coming home from work. My son continues to ask where is she and can she come back to Milwaukee for a time to come and prepare food. It is critical in any review that one have trust, confidence and successful communication. Kat gets an A+ from me in all regards. You will be lucky and fortunate to have here skills. My suggestion is do not hesitate. We enjoyed her immensely and miss her yoga and cooking talents. Thanks for listening.
Had an amazing time with Jay. I have done a few cooking classes with him and have learned more in the few classes than I have in ten years! I enjoyed the fact that any dish I love to eat he would teach me to create. I have always been a simple cook at home, but he helped me learn what cooking really is! I highly suggest his service!
Shrutikas skills exceed far beyond food preparation. Yes, she is very talented at cooking a wide array of international meals and desserts. Every thing I have tasted that she has prepared is simply mouth watering! To top it off, she uses organic and very healthy ingredients. I leave feeling well fed and completely delighted. Having the aptitude and insight into cooking is wonderful; however, Shrutika brings much more insight to the table. Because she has a technology background, she is analytical and methodical. The combination of her cooking abilities and efficient nature is a great recipe for a fantastic entrepreneur. I have found that Shrutika organizes and plans everything to perfection. Plus, she is friendly and so much fun! I cant imagine anyone being disappointed hiring Shrutika for catering, cooking classes, or any services she provides.
Spencer has catered 2 parties in our home. One a smaller meal for 12, and then a party for 50. He is super easy to work with, had great ideas for menu planning and dishes and the food was fabulous. Plus we had some gluten and dairy restrictions and he was able to easily accommodate that. We got so many compliments. We consider him now our default caterer and will call him for any future events.
Participated in a class and made Indian food. It has always been an interest of mine due to my world travels to learn cuisine from some of my destinations. The evening was not only fun but well organized and kept us all on our toes! I will be back!
I got a cooking class that was centered around Asian cuisine specific sinapore ingredients. From black pepper crab to Laksa soup it was an amazing delicious class

I can teach almost any style or type of cooking. I offer individual or group lessons. I am an avid cook and trainer who loves to learn, which makes a better teacher. From ethnic cuisines to simple foods, all can be an expression of love and art. I love passing that joy of cooking along to others. I also teach kombucha, and I am studying and experimenting with fermented foods. Cooking from the heart is a joy! Let me know what you would like to learn! I have taken lessons from celebrity chefs and classes in Italy, won cooking contests, competed in groups as large as 400, and made it through two rounds for the master chef premier. I would love to pass my love of food and learning onto you.
