Rob Provost is an innovative chef with a flare for cooking really, really, great food. His passion for presentation and great flavor combinations put him at the top of my list for a private chef or catering for my work and family functions. He created a wonderful personal 5 course dinner for my husband and I that was out of this world. All of this and the fact this he is a retired veteran solidifies my top rating for Rob Provost as a chef and for his company. Hiring him is a win/win proposition!
My husband and I started training with Mike in January with the ultimate goal of getting in shape and toning for our wedding in July. On our wedding day, I was the most confident I have been with my body in for as long as I can remember. Mike's workouts are great. He really listens to your goals and develops customized plans to help you get there. For me it was all about the arms for the wedding dress and I was very happy with how my arms looked on the big day. Prior to Mike, I had been bottoming out on too much cardio and not enough strength training. I was working out 4-7 times a week and wasn't getting the results I felt I deserved based on the amount of time I was putting in. Mike changed that and I finally got the definition I had been looking for. We started having Mike cook for us in May when we started to get busier with wedding tasks & were traveling every two weeks. Mike's meals were delicious and I'm so glad that I got to learn from his healthy cooking example. He is a registered dietician in addition to his personal training license, it doesn't get much better than that people! Additionally, we love Mike because he is a real person! We have met trainers at big gyms that don't understand a life outside of the gym. Mike gets it. He knows you aren't going to eat perfect on vacation and gives you tips on how not to overindulge or healthy alternatives. He helps you work through these challenges as opposed to making you feel like a failure when you make bad choices. Last thing about Mike. He is just a really good guy. He is about as honest and genuine as they come. He puts his whole heart into it and he truly cares about his clients. We would highly recommend him to anyone who is in search of a personal trainer!
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!
Erin was the instructor for more than two years when my son was taking cooking classes at a local cooking school. My son LOVED classes with her. She was kind and caring and really inspired him to want to become a chef. Since that point, Erin helped my son get his first volunteer job in food services at a local hospital. Erin was an important, positive role model in my son's life. Great chef, too, of course! Thank you, Erin.
Fred is an amazing chef. I can honestly say that some of the best food I've ever tasted came was created on his stove. I could taste his passion for cooking!
Stevie helped me with complete meal planning, prep, and cooking service. She stocked my fridge with 10 healthy, varied, delicious, organic 'clean meals' every week. She did all the menu planning with my input, shopping, prep, cooking, and cleaned up after she left. All I had to do was decide which delicious meal to eat. High quality nutrition is hard to manage as a working solo parent- Stevie helped me by both providing meals AND coaching on nutritional choices. She is teaching me strategies and techniques to do it myself now. She provides coaching, support, information, and 'how tos' to help totally revamp my nutrition and wellness.
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 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
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!
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.
I have worked with Erin for both a cooking class and a catering event. She had a great combination of professionalism and humor and both events went beautifully and the food was delicious. I will absolutely use Chef Erin's services again for my future cookery needs.
I have hired Deven on several occasions and it was always worth it. I was so excited he moved back to Colorado. As soon as I heard, I scheduled him for an evening with a group of friends. I have also hired him for one-on-one cooking instruction. I always learn something I can incorporate into my home cooking. He is professional, patient, and enjoyable to interact with. Look what I made-YUM!
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
