Maggie was a pleasure to work with. I was hosting a retirement party for my husband at my home. She came to my home, figured out the best way to arrange the food, prepared delicious hors d'oevres and delivered them. She set the food up, and after the event she cleaned up, I would recommend her to anyone. I enjoyed my own party because I had nothing to do but hire her.

Tom catered a crayfish boil in our home for 20 people. The food was wonderful - and he even cleans up! I've also attended several dinners where he prepared the food. The meals were delicious and imaginative; from perfectly grilled salmon to bison chili. I'd love to have him cater all my dinner parties.

Dustin was professional, flexible, and an excellent chef. We selected Dustin because he has a high focus on the quality of the food. The meal was well thought out and expertly prepared. His team took care of everything, and he accommodated a number of dietary restrictions and requests. It was an outstanding evening!

Sparrow Kitchen is nothing short of amazing. We have been using Nancy's services for a few months now and we are incredibly impressed with her attentive style and incredible food. Our family of four orders weekly dinners from SK and the ingredients are always fresh, the meals are creative and most importantly deliveries are on time! SK has made our family dinners less stressful, and given us more time to be together and enjoy each other. Thank you Nancy!

Sean is an excellent chef and very easy to work with! I met him at a wedding and after just minutes of chatting with him, I hired him to cater 10 different meals for my office staff. His menus were fresh and creative and his food was loved by everyone! Even eating his meals 10 out of 16 days (would have been 16 out of 16 but he was already booked!), my staff never was tired of it or looked for anything different. The menu had such a variety and each type of food was delicious! He was friendly, quick to respond and very easy to work with. I HIGHLY recommend Sean for any type of event you need catered!

Chef Bob exceeded our expectations on our 40th Birthday Couples weekend celebration in Boulder. Prior to our arrival Bob was in contact with us regarding any questions and guided us on our menu selection. Bob even visited our VRBO prior to our visit to scope out the kitchen and cooking tools. To our surprise, the kitchen was smaller down! Now for the food! It completely exceeded our expectations. The lettuce wraps and polenta pizatta appetizers were an excellent, savory start. This was followed by mouth watering main dishes: mango bbq ribs, vietanemse chicken, and tuna with portobella, kale salad and mango slaw. We highly reccommend each as it was all done simply and professionally. For dessert than expected and Bob made the best of it. One would have never known a kitchenette and very limited cooking utensils were available to Bob. We were looking forward to a great, relaxing dining for a reasonable price. Bob was our answer. He came to our house, set up, and checked in as needed with all the guests regarding preferences for setup and the entire meal. His presence was just right and not overbearing. It was much appreciated as it allowed us, friends, to visit with each other and chow Bob made a lemon saffron pie. Yum! We wouldn't have changed a thing. Chef Bob is the real deal. We look forward to returning to the area and enjoying another memorable meal prepared and served by Chef Bob.

I hired Carrie with Knife and Pepper to cater a surprise dinner for my mom's 70th birthday and it was fabulous! We had about 12 guests and Carrie prepared an amazing home cooked Italian dinner. Everyone loved the food and the appetizers were my absolute favorite - delicious! Presentation was wonderful, price was appropriate. We did the meal as a drop off and buffet style at my house and it really was wonderful. I would absolutely hire them again and highly recommend them!

Grant came to cook dinner for us and a few of our friends. The dinner was fantastic. He came prepared for everything, pots, pans, dishes, silverware, everything. We spent part of the evening chatting with him while he made our dinner and hours d'ourves. When we finally dragged ourselves away from asking Grant about 100 questions about cooking, we sat down to dinner and were presented with three beautifully prepared and presented courses, each one delicious. We had a zuchini salad to start, a steak for a main and a pavlova for desert. For me the Pavlova was the best, it was a dish I had grown up with my mom making for special occasions and Grant stepped it up a notch with berry cream and muddle strawberries. It was amazing! We will have Grant cook for us again and again.

Honestly, Connor was much better then expected or anticipated! Not only was he consistent and timely in responding to my emails but was on top of any and all questions I had! Very thorough and specific in terms of trying to figure out exactly what you're looking to gain from the time together. Feels very relaxed and easy going. Never a feeling of being rushed or forced and does a great job at taking the lead while still allowing you to feel like your in control. I wanted to make sure he knew what I wanted as far as, Meal Prep, Food Combination & Planning for the week ahead... What I got was all that and more; an introduction to Seasonings, Proper cooking times, Techniques, and Tools for eliminating waste and increasing efficiency ! He was very straight forward, easy to understand and relatable. Connor makes it unbelievably easy to take simple ingredients combined with a few simple spices and seasonings to bring to life a really delicious, healthy and hearty meal! I would definitely recommend anyone looking for an inexpensive High Quality chef to come share his experience and knowledge! 11/10 on rating of satisfaction!

Tri-Stone Catering did a great job for us, and the owner Matthew was fantastic! He was easy to work with, professional, offered great suggestions, always prompt, and of course is an amazing chef! We hosted a Christmas dinner for 17 friends. Matthew made a multi-course meal that was prepared in our home. Everything came off without a hitch. Not only did he prepare the meal, he served it, and cleaned everything up along the way. While Matthew did the heavy lifting, we could focus on our guests and really relax and enjoy their company...amazing! We highly recommend Tri-Stone Catering & Matthew for your event and we look forward to hiring him again. Thanks Matthew!

Chef Kerry came and did a private cooking lesson for 2 of us. He was happy to help with knife skills, which I specifically requested, and came prepared with handouts and meal ideas that would allow us to practice. The food we cooked was great and lasted us a whole week!

I an constantly on the road with my career and eating right is always a challenge when you are living in a hotel. When I met Casandra I was working in Colorado living in a hotel for almost 3 months. Having her do meal planning/perpetration was a blessing. I would highly recommend her business.

Debbie's deliciousness

The job that Debbie Direnzo did for me was very unique, to say the least. The event was a three day Buddhist funeral ceremony. Given the somber circumstances, Debbie blended seamlessly with the situation. She was very professional with all her interactions, timely, and on budget. There were several unpredictable requests that came up over the three days, and Debbie's response was always, "I can do that." Besides cooking, she even ran some other errands at a moments notice. I was orchestrating the food to this event from out of state, so I had to trust that Debbie, whom I have never met other than on Thumbtack, would be able to be a proactive liaison in providing full service to the people at the event. She really went above and beyond to allow the attendants to focus on the ceremony and not have to worry about any aspect of the food service. If my experience with Debbie isn't stellar enough, I have been contacted by some of the people in attendance at the ceremony wanting to know "who was that person who served the food? We want her back. She was amazing!" Besides her easy going personality, the feedback I received from the people who ate Debbie's meals was that they were delicious and fresh. Debbie texted me pictures of the dishes she prepared and they looked really good. There were special requests for gluten free, some vegan and some meat, and all organic. She accommodated all requests, and everyone was satisfied. My only regret is that since this was such a unique, once-only event, and that I don't live in the area, I won't have the pleasure of hiring Debbie again. But my friends who met Debbie at the event are eager to have the luxury of using her services in the future. Thanks to Debbie, for doing such an all around terrific job. Everyone was very pleased with the outcome.

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.
