I am Jan Dunbar (Janice Romney Dunbar: Mrs. C.W. Dunbar) I've known Tom Letts in various capacities, particularly that of a friend as he has had an interesting career, crossing paths with our lives and with our interests. Tom is a Chef-At-Heart. Tom never heard the term, "Fast Food." without coming up with an alternative that was twice as nutritious, twice as interesting, and twice as much fun. Not many amateur chefs I know would pack up his favorite pot, favorite knives, and detour into organic food stores where his lively imagination could innovate a recipe to fit something fresh and exciting, promising to make it through his kitchen to come out surprising and delicious. At the same time, Tom is a patient innovator who can take something like a mushroom of unknown flavor, doing small maneuvers between sink and stove, coming up with something simmered and slow-savored to just the "different" kind of sauce. Tom is a fearless shopper, buying things that are unusual, sometimes exotic, sometimes experimental and handsome on the plate. and nothing is too much trouble. I've lived next door to Tom from time to time. The sounds and scents of Tom-in-the-kitchen are an experience of joy and excitement. You should try it!

Dustin provided exquisite dining for a group of 10 for 2 weeks aboard a luxury houseboat on Lake Powell, Arizona. The cuisine was nothing short of divine...matching the impact of the stunning desert landscape. From the uniqueness of the menu to the savory blend of flavors to the artistic presentation, each meal was professionally crafted by an extremely talented chef. The cleanliness and organization was impeccable. Having hired excellent chefs for our Lake Powell trip for over ten years, Dustin was awarded the TOP CHEF award by our guests who travel the globe. He is exemplary in all facets of his profession.

We hired Nancy for a private chef service. We wanted a formal dinner for an intimate group of 6. We contacted her on short notice and on top of the busy holiday season but she didn't flinch. Her response time was impeccable, and her confidence and professionalism put us at ease. And the best part, it's affordable! We had a 5-star meal in the comforts of home that if we went out for we probably would've spent more. Don't hesitate hiring Nancy, she follows through on everything she promises and we had the luxury of being served while enjoying time with family. It was worth every penny. We highly recommend Nancy and would definitely hire her again. Thank you for making our evening so special!

From the start of my experience with Knife and Pepper, working with Carrie was a breeze and, equally importantly, a fantastic decision for my private party. Between short notice, a change in party organization, and personalized service, she really went above and beyond to provide an incredible catering package. On the day of, she was professional, punctual, and eager to make the party a hit, and I am very glad that I went with Knife and Pepper. Finally, it bears mentioning that everyone loved the food, and the portions were very generous for the number of guests confirmed. I would absolutely recommend going with Knife and Pepper for your private party!

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!

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!

Mr. Kimball was our home chef for about nine months and outstanding in this position. He was very professional, prompt, and a pleasure to work with. But most importantly, his food was wonderful. He takes feedback very well and worked hard to meet our dietary needs. We often say how much we miss him cooking for us. He left our employment after graduating and moving out of the area or we will employ him still.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
