  1. #1 Nikki Can Cook

    (123 reviews)

    Betty A.

    Nikki is an excellent chef - food was delicious. She was on time and was very personable! The young men she brought with her were so nice! I had asked for her to prepare extra homemade croutons for me to have the next day and though she said of course I suspect in the haste to leave she forgot them. ( By the way they were great!) The only comment I would make in using a chef versus my regular caterers is that Nikki and her team planned to leave while we were eating dessert. In doing so I would have been left to clean all those dishes ( 10 seated guests) and wine glasses myself. She said that was the way she always did things. None of my caterers have ever done that -- that is part of what you are paying for ($700+) to enjoy your evening and have no work to do ! Just being hostess is enough getting the house and flowers and table set! Nikki knew we had 50 people arriving post dinner for an after party and needed the dinner dishes all pulled and cleaned - was very disappointed that we had to discuss that at the last minute! I had hired a separate bartender for the glasses to be taken care at the post party. I expected her to not do any of those dishes. I did ask her to place trays of desserts I had prepared on the "cleaned off" dining table when they finished. ( I paid them a handsome tip for doing this) Also - I have never had a caterer use the dishwasher for my dishes - I have always found them hand washed and stacked in kitchen. Nikki's team loaded my dishwashers (2) with the hand painted china and sterling flatware. I should have explained that is not done - my mistake, I just haven't had to before. She is an EXCELLENT CHEF! Services are not as "easy" on the host and her familiarity with things like the china and silver should be discussed before hand. Be very specific about every detail on how you see the evening going - write it up so you both know. We had Sea Bass and It Was Amazing!

    We used Simply Elegant and More Catering for a small VIP lunch for an event at the VA. Antionette was very professional from the beginning to the end and was always quick to respond to any of my inquiries. The food was great and all the guests enjoyed themselves! I'd definitely recommend Simply Elegant!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Nikki Can Cook

(123 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I love the happy faces that always appear after my customers taste my food. I'm always thankful for people who invite me into their homes to celebrate special occasions and create lasting memories. My job allows me to have the utmost freedom in creating my own schedule. Cooking is my creative outlet, and the opportunity to express that on a daily basis is truly a blessing.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I was inspired to start my own business after I experienced two layoffs that I didn't want to happen again. It was the time to create my own path and share my love of cooking with other people. I truly wanted my mission to bring families back to the dinner table and create conversations over good meals, and Thumbtack has helped me bring that dream to life.
