Fantastic experience! Chef Jan Hill was extremely professional, great communicator, quality of food and presentation was beyond our expectations, all-in-all Chef Hill gave us a wonderful and memorable experience for my son's 35th birthday! Chef Hill is a very proficient and talented chef and a lovely person as well! This was the first time we hired a personal chef to create and serve a special occasion meal for my family in our home and we wonder why it took us so long, lol! Thank you Chef Hill!!

Chef Elliott is the absolute best! He is professional, punctual, patient, and responsive. He worked with me to create a custom food and drink menu for my very special dinner for two. His food is delicious. I would definitely hire him again and again for my personal chef needs.

We all loved the arugula salad. All of the food was good. First time using a personal chef on thumbtack and will definitely do it again. It was a last minute idea and made cooking cake through beautifully in 24 hours!

Chef Kay hosted an anniversary dinner I planned for my parents. While planning the dinner I had already spoken to two different chefs who ended up not being available. So Chef Kay literally was my saving grace. Not only did she work with me on last minute scheduling, but she also spoke to me several times on the phone as well as met me at my house for a face-to-face meeting to discuss the menu. I was very impressed with her willingness to work with me on the menu items. My mother has a very strict eating plan and Chef Kay was able to provide an ALL organic 4-course meal for two for $170. For that price she provided dinner that night and food for later. Both my parents loved the meal and had plenty or left overs. I would definitely recommend Chef Kay to anyone who is interested in hiring a personal chef. She really did an outstanding job. Signed, A satisfied customer

Chef John was truly remarkable. Honestly, I was a bit skeptical at first given that it was my first time booking on thumbtack and my first time hiring a personal chef. My worries were sure put to ease with John's responsiveness and willingness to bring my idea to fruition. We were beyond pleased and plan to book him again in the future (already passed his contact information to a friend). John, thank you for your tasty food and fun personality. We had a great time!

This was my first time ever booking a Personal Chef. I was nervous and didn’t know what to expect. Trey made this the most pleasant experience and I was completely satisfied from start to finish. The food was AMAZING! He is very personable and his spirit is very pure! I look forward to continuing this journey with him!

I cant say enough good things about Cupid's Pantry. Chenoa is very professional, detail oriented, flexible and came prepared for any twists or unexpected events. Her staff was there from set up to clean up and never missed a beat. I would highly recommend Cupid's Pantry for personal chef services.

My husband kept asking me what I wanted to do for my 60th birthday. I knew travelling during COVID was not something I wanted to do, nor did I want to go to a restaurant. A personal chef continued to come to mind and that is what I requested. Chef Brandon DOES NOT DISAPPOINT!!! I had family and a couple of friends for my 60th birthday dinner and we are still talking about the appetizers (BEST MEATBALLS EVER!!!!) and dinner. When I initially contact Chef, he was very responsive, offered suggestions and he made sure every detail was finalized. He contacted me the day of the dinner to make sure everything was going ok for him to arrive and nothing was pending. He arrived promptly, with his wonderful assistant, Jessica, and greeted everyone and got to work. Again, the appetizers were wonderful, and the dinner was AMAZING! None of us had never had such a tender seared flank steak. I could go on and on and on. From start to finish - perfection! My kitchen was even cleaned!! I can promise anyone reading this that you will not be disappointed - book Chef Brandon now! I am looking forward to celebrating with Chef in the future.

JazzyEats catered my husband’s surprise 50 birthday dinner at our home. This was my first time hiring a professional personal chef. Naturally, I was unsure of the process. Jasmine was patient with me and explained her menu/services thoroughly. I must say, we weren’t disappointed. Jasmine provided excellent service! She was warm and personable. It felt like she was apart of our family. Her food was excellent and presented beautifully. I’m definitely going to request her for future events!

Fantastic! That’s a one word description of Chef John’s feast that he prepared for my 50th birthday dinner for me and five guests. From first contact until the end of dinner, John made me feel like I was his only concern. We started in April for a May event. He offered a variety of menu options until we agreed on the perfect selection for the celebration. John even offered suggestions for wine pairings. John wanted to make this dinner a memorable event. Believe me, I will always remember my 50th birthday festivities. On the night of the celebration, Chef John and his son Jake arrived on time. The food had minimum on-site preparation, but was extraordinary. Jake served each course and Chef John would then describe each of the five courses. Talk about five star dining…at home! We started with a fresh Savannah shrimp in sweet and tangy barbeque sauce oh John’s creation and worked our way to a great Triple chocolate cake with vanilla crème Anglaise. I would gladly recommend Chef John to anyone who wants a personal touch with a flare of elegance. I strongly believe he is a great cook and a very nice person. It was so nice to have a great dining experience and not having to worry about preparation or clean up. We did have one piece of stemware break by accident. Chef John reimbursed me.(You know, it's not a party until a wine glass gets broken.) Everyone enjoyed our dinner that night! Thank you John!

We hired Kelsey for my mom's birthday and she was awesome! She was flexible and customized a menu for us. Kelsey was very professional:showed up on time, was quick with responses to any questions we had before we hired her and is an all around great person to work with. The food was delicious! We had clams in Thai curry sauce for apps, red wine braised beef short ribs that melted in your mouth with sesame green beans and a salted caramel creme brûlée to finish! I highly recommend her for your personal chef experience.

We used Keri-Anne to assist with cooking meals for a week. She was reasonably priced and prepared a very interesting menu. She was professional with making arrangements to meet and was very flexible. Additionally, her meals were packaged well and labeled for ease of use. The food tasted great. The only reason we didn't continue use is because the portions didn't allow for left-overs the next day for lunch. That is no knock against her, it was just a stipulation for us if we were going to use a personal chef in place of our own cooking. I would highly recommend.
