Thomas is the best! I hired Thomas via Thumbtack for private cooking lessons as a Christmas present for my wife. He arrived on time and together we learned how to cook a wonderful and scrumptious entree, side and desert. Everything was so delicious and flavorful and the best part was that Thomas taught us how to easily replicate for future entertaining. Thomas is polite, courteous and VERY professional. You will feel very comfortable having him in your home as if an old friend has shown up for a cooking lesson. Thomas cleaned up everything and we had the rest of such a special night to ourselves. What a treat. I highly, highly recommend Thomas Hudson. His food is sooooo good!

Whether you are having a small get together for a few or a large gathering, be rest assured that your event will be amazing! Chef Michel is extremely professional, respectful, and friendly! He catered 2 events for our family and we were very pleased with both. The first was a party of nearly 100 people celebrating our son’s college graduation and daughter’s high school graduation. Our second event was a last minute post Thanksgiving weekend family get together for 12-15 people. Everything from the planning, to taste testing, and delivery was on point. Aside from the food being beyond mouth watering delicious, he coordinated with outside vendors to provide everything we needed to make the graduation event beautiful. He also provided on site chefs and wait staff, all of which were professional and attentive to details. They were flexible in their assigned roles and remained past the scheduled time to attend to our guests and clean up. Our home was left as clean as it was when they arrived! Chef Michel prides himself on delivering the best quality and freshest foods possible. Other than a few items that required pre-prep (like marinating / slow cooking...definitely try the roast pork and roast chicken) everything was prepared (cut, fried, cooked, assembled etc) on site. This truly makes a difference when you’re serving items like empanadas or tostones with avocado and shrimp (both highly recommended). Chef Michel is very creative. Whether you choose something from his printed menus, have other items in mind, or even have a special recipe that you want him to prepare...HE CAN DO IT! An important point to make about his catering style is that he is so proud of his creations that he wants everyone to be able to taste everything that he prepares. If you choose an appetizer and you have 100 people, you are not going to get 1 or 2 pieces per person or be charged by the piece, like most caterers. He will make sure you have more than enough for everyone. The same applies to your main course. We had leftovers for ourselves, even after our guests took food home. With all of this said, I truly feel that his prices are fair and reasonable! I could write more and would be more than happy to speak to anyone who has any questions, but I’ll end with...make sure you try his homemade ice creams (our favorites were coconut and pineapple), flan, and especially the sangria!

Mitch did a great job. He worked with us ahead of time to refine the menu. He came early and set up. All the food was well prepared and delicious.

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.

Debbie is WONDERFUL and I would highly recommend her to everyone I know. I signed up for a series of 6 cooking classes with her with the goal of forcing myself to try new foods and learning new recipes - I definitely accomplished both! Everything she taught us was health conscious and tasted delicious! I am looking forward to the next set of 6 classes with Debbie!

I have taken two cooking classes with Chef Celeste Borelli at her boutique studio kitchen in Avon and could not have been more pleased with both of them! Chef Borelli has a warm and inviting personality and is truly gifted at turning fresh, local ingredients into elegant, yet simple to prepare, dishes that I have made myself several times since the classes. In addition, I was fortunate enough to enjoy a lovely and delicious brunch prepared by Chef Borelli at her home. I encourage you to contact Chef Borelli whether you are looking to learn some fresh new dishes to share with family and friends this holiday season or could use a little help with your cooking.

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!

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!

About

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!
