We hired Vivian as the chef for our wedding. The food she created for us was AMAZING! She took the time to create a personalized menu with us and even got us unusual requests - we had a whole roast pig! We were impressed with the way Vivian left our kitchen after cooking for all of our guests. Vivian is super personable and I would highly recommend her if you are looking for fantastic tasting food.
He was great! We had him come to our home to cook an NYE dinner. It made the evening that much more special and fun. It was so nice to not have to worry about cooking the meal, and be able to spend that time with family and friends. It was also very interesting talking to the chef, watching him prepare the dishes ( and even help!) and learn about what he was creating. Would recommend for a special occasion!

Reginald Beck was the facilitator of a cooking class at the Puyallup state fair in summer 2012. His presentation was easy to follow. His oration was clear and concise. Product created by participants turned out very well. I attribute that to his instruction. I have tasted his products on numerous occasions and I have never had a bad experience
Rhiannon is a clas act and at the top of her game. Her recipes and cooking techniques are world class. I'm going to follow her achievements closely as I expect great things from her Fantastic recipes, delicious food, presentation like art, and the best of ingredients. It doesn't get any better!!
If you possibly can, please hire Amanda!!! She has been a Godsend for my elderly friends. The wife is 89 years old and has cataracts and her husband who was the chef in their relationship has macular degeneration and has great difficulty cooking. They are still living independently but the task of meal planning, shopping, and making meals just wears them out now. I suggested trying meals on wheels during my visit and that suggestion was met with MUCH resistance based the experience of some of their friends. So Amanda's home made, nutritious, and balanced meals delivered once or twice a week is really a highlight to their day. Just a couple of minutes in the microwave and dinner is served. Larry is a meat & potatoes fellow and he has finished every meal so far including the vegetables. Georgie has lost 12 lbs from the stress of trying to take care of Larry and manage their daily lives that I bet she will be able to relax and regain this important body weight back because the meals taste so good. The biggest boost has been Amanda's youthful energy and love that she puts into her meals. It really is like fine dining without having to leave your home.
Sandy has been doing a one on one culinary class with my 12 year old daughter over the last three weeks and the results are delicious! Her rates are beyond reasonable and Phoebe has brought home the most delectable dishes to share her learning with us! Sandy successfully taught Phoebe to make the best Pate a chox, a dinner of Roasted free range chicken with fresh fig wine sauce, Mediterranean quinoa with golden raisins and pine nuts and Brussels sprouts and garlicky prosciutto which is absolutely delicious! She also taught her knife skills, setting a formal table, plating and even provided the cutest apron fit for a chef in the making! She has been so kind and warm, really teaching Phoebe the joy and rewards of producing meals fit for royalty! I highly recommend her for the sometimes difficult task of teaching young people an appreciation for the culinary arts! Phoebe specifically said, "She's really nice and you can warm up to her really fast. She's very creative, my favorite part is tasting the food." That's a win in my book!
It would be difficult to summarize my love for Edyth James in this narrative, or my love for her cooking. She is in a class all her own. You will not find anyone in this area who comes close to her abilities. I was introduced to Edyth and her amazing cuisine over 20 years ago, when she and her late husband ran the infamous resturant Saffron's on Park Street. I was blown away. It was like ecstasy on my tongue. I was hooked. My husband and I were regulars in her establishment and actually had our wedding reception there. She is not only an amazing cook, she makes you feel like family with her genuine kindness. She is the first person that comes to mind if I'm having an event or gathering. Her food is alway the centerpiece. Do yourself a favor. Try her, you will not be disappointed.
Ashley is an amazing chef. I'm gluten free and she makes the best food, including baked goods and treats. I never feel like I'm missing out. Not only is she an awesome chef, but she gives great cooking lessons too - really informative and down to my level. Not to be overlooked are her incredible marshmallows, granola - and my personal favorite - the caramels!!!! Amazing!
Chef Gordon is an amazing chef! He prepared an outstanding meal for our group of 6 adults. It was such a pleasures have him cook for us! Made our trip extra special!
Gerrie was delight to work with. She was on time for our meeting and on the day of the party. When she came to meet me she already had ideas to help me with the theme and menu of my party, and even provided a couple recipes. She introduced me to Pinterest, too. Via phone and email we made final plans for my 65th birthday. I wanted to do most of the cooking, but I have to say that the pulled pork that she brought was terrific. She came to help prep and set up, as well as serve and clean up. She maintained her friendly and helpful attitude. Gerrie even created a dish for a friend with a very restricted diet. She served a signature drink that she suggested and it was a hit. I would definitely hire Gerrie again. Carolyn Duncan
Dave prepared omelets for our group. He was neat, clean, sanitary, prepared and completed a great product. His omelets were very tasty and well cooked. He is fun while cooking and enjoys cooking for people and making them happy.
The food is absolutely amazing! It's rare to find a catering company that can cook food in large quantities that is flavorful and seasoned. Staff is personable and professional. Livy O's works with any budget, and always offers alternatives and menu options. The cooking classes are fun and interactive! This is an excellent, flexible caterer.
This was my first experience using Thumbtack and I was a bit apprehensive as to how everything would turn out, to be honest I was worried that the person we hired would not show up. I had 18 guests and wanted to have a chef that would teach us about cooking while he cooked a meal for us. Chef TJ reached out to me and was very timely with responses. We discussed food allergies and menu ideas and came up with a three course meal we felt would be fun to learn about and be good and met a couple of our favorite tastes. He offered to purchase all the ingredients and would just bill me when he arrived. I had a couple of the ingredients so we discussed the outstanding items and he was able to pick those up. He arrived with his wife/assistant at the time he said he would which gave him enough time to setup and get the feel for my kitchen. He asked me to give him a 15 minute warning as to when we were ready to begin. I liked that he was aware of the time and willing to accommodate a later start time then originally discussed but we stuck to the original start time. He was very clear and direct - with a group of 18 people I was worried it would be difficult to maintain attention while also being heard. He was clearly a professional and this was not his first time giving instructions - or at least it wasn't apparent. They plated and served the food and passed them out to the guests and Katherine, his wife/assistant was assisting with that while also cleaning and washing the dishes as they cooked. At the end of the night they left the kitchen - probably cleaner than they found it. I was very pleased as were all of our guests. I would definitely recommend him to our friends and I would definitely hire him again.
