I have had the great pleasure of enjoying the delights of Mrs. Love's cakes and amazing cooking. She catered our company Thanksgiving Dinners for several years. Her cooking never fails to blow everyone away & I cannot say enough about her level of professionalism. Her cooking made those Thanksgiving dinners an event we all would look forward to all year long.

I hired Chef Scott Murray for a private dinner at home for my husbands birthday. My husband was so excited when I told him the morning of and Chef met all of our expectations. It was so much fun to eat a 5 star dinner in the comfort of our own home. Chef was extremely personable and unbelievably talented. We did a 6 course menu starting with an arugula salad, followed by shrimp risotto (our favorite), hoisin glazed pork belly, roasted duck breast, braised beef short ribs and lastly bourbon raisin bread pudding! It was amazing. My husband asked if Chef could come every Saturday!! He loved every minute of it. We will definitely be hiring Chef again. Whether it's for a group party or for another special occasion. He was amazing to work with and the food was outstanding. We can't wait to do it again!

I've been an avid home cook for years but in just one class with Evan, I learned so many things that will make my cooking experience more fun and the meals I make more delicious. It's amazing how learning how to actually use a knife can speed things along! I took the class alongside my 14 year old son who has taken a reality show driven interest in cooking. Evan's class was great for both of us. My son learned a lot and is excited to continue his culinary journey. I so appreciate how he tailored the class to our needs. We are looking forward to more classes with Food's an Art!

My family was lucky to work with Denise this winter/spring. She came to our house several times for private instruction and was so warm and encouraging and knowledgable as she explained everything she was doing for us. It was amazing to see her involve my preteen/teen boys whenever they had time and in whatever they decided to take interest. She encouraged them to taste new foods, to discuss what they liked, to think about what was healthy and to enjoy working in the kitchen (or at the grill!) She gave me great tips and examples for meal planning, shopping, prepping, cooking, cleaning and organizing my kitchen, all with a great focus on healthy habits. She has put us on a path to better eating and more enjoyable family meal time together - what a gift. Thank you Denise!

I wanted to learn how to throw together nutritious meals quickly and without too much fuss. I went to the kitchen of Lisa Jones and got private lessons. Oh my G-d, the food was delicious and her tips so valuable. Best of all spending time with Lisa was a blast! She has great stories and loves what she does, her positive energy is contagious! I highly recommend spending time in the kitchen with Lisa Jones! Jane K.

Kiyo had prepared several healthy meals for me after I had just had my twins. It was a huge help to just enjoy prepared meals instead of trying to find the time to cook for myself. Many months later she helped my family again by preparing puréed baby foods for my twins which they loved. She really listened to my needs and even filled special requests.

Chef Jenn demonstrated a level of versatility and professionalism that can't be matched when she held a Thai cooking class for my bachelorette. With last minute notice and requests we were sure we would have had to compromise on she came through with exactly what we wanted. To top it off she did so quickly, and more flexibly than we could have ever asked for! She was knowledgeable, fun, and she fit right in with my crazy group of girlfriends making for an amazing night! I have used her tips and tricks frequently in my own kitchen and have used her recipes multiple times in my home and they are always a hit! Highly recommended!

It is important to feel confident that the Chef you hire will do an outstanding job. After all, it isn't everyday you hire a Chef and for that special occasion - you want it to be just perfect. Knowing that, I hired Chef Peterson to cook for my sister's engagement dinner, and he did an incredible job. His knowledge of food and wine, ease in working in our kitchen and with the other staff, and overall talent in cooking was just outstanding! I cannot say enough good things. So, I can recommend Chef Peterson highly and assure you that he is the guy you are looking for to make your event the best it can possibly be.

I am certified by the Kushi Institute in Macrobiotic Cooking. I have been practicing a macrobiotic lifestyle for 30 years and lived and worked at the Kushi Institute for three years in the registration department. I raised two grown children with the macrobiotic diet and lifestyle, and they are happy and off living their lives now. I am dedicated, compassionate, patient and kind. I have also been a yoga instructor since 1997. I have taught macrobiotic and ayurvedic cooking classes at the Integral Yoga Institute in New York City, in the tristate area as well as San Francisco. I have helped many people change their lives and health for the better by just showing them the way. What we put into our bodies creates the sea of life or our bloodstream. If this pulsating stream is acidic, clogged and unclean, then viruses and germs can harbor and grow and create life-threatening illnesses. With a macrobiotic diet, you will clean your body in a safe and gentle way without medications if you so chose or with moderated medicine from your doctor. The food can become delicious to you as you start to appreciate it and most importantly, feel better! This is a splendid opportunity to learn from a teacher who lives it every day. I am very supportive and have a wealth of resources of the best macrobiotic teachers in the world. I would be happy to talk to you about any health concerns and give you my idea of a plan for you of healthy eating and healing. Please call or text anytime. Thank you!
