I've ordered from here and I thought the service and delivery time was very well done. The pastries are delicious and they put a lot of time into making them taste good. I would recommend this to anyone.

So happy we chose Chef Val and her staff for our corporate event! The presentation was wonderful, they arrived on time, and the cost was better than any other proposal we received. Everyone loved their food, but the biggest hits were the Deviled Eggs, the Garlic Parmesan Chicken Bites, and the Triple Chocolate and Red Corvette Velvet Cupcakes! I would definitely and use them again for our next event. Thanks so much Chef Val, you were a delight to work with!

Chef Julie was hired to help our 4th grade Girl Scout troop earn their Simple Cooks badge. She taught the girls to make homemade ricotta gnocci with a creamy mushroom pesto, a baby kale & arugula salad with homemade viniagrette and cake pops for dessert. The girls were equally as interested in the climbing dome in the backyard as they were in learning to cook. Chef Julie was very patient with the girls and the food was fantastic. There was not a drop of gnocchi left, all of the at least tried the salad (I thought it was great) and of course the cake pops were a hit too! It was a learning experience for both of us. I would recommend Chef Julie!

My lovely Girlfriend brought Mariela in to cook for my 30th birthday and it could not have been better. She came over to our place, groceries and tools in hand, and put together one of the best meals we've had in a long long time. She also gladly cooked up pretty much everything she bought, so we've been eating leftovers all week. Don't hesitate to bring her in, you won't be disappointed.

Chef Paul Catering was exactly what I was looking for in a full service caterer. They took care of everything and the food was wonderful. They worked so quietly and neatly that I hardly knew they were in our home. I will definitely use them again and recommend them.

I have experienced Chef Jacqueline’s culinary products for almost 4 years. We I needed someone to help develop the menu for my restaurants and we are thrilled with her results. Her specialty is pastries but also a fantastic savory chef. Very professional and passionate presence.

Let me set the stage for you: It was crunch time. I had an expected 60 or so guests to arrive at a work function. We didn't have much time to plan either. I knew that I wanted to have all different types of food. I knew I needed to have someone versatile in cooking techniques and was also able to do some sweets. In the past, I have done small catering orders through Marlo and it went beautifully. I called her to see if she could bail me out on such short notice (A week). Marlo saves the day again! She put my worries at ease by helping me create a menu to what I wanted for the event with all the specifications. I like to use her because she does Filipino, Spanish, American, and I bet she could do it all! To say the least, we were beyond impressed with the food was delicious and fresh. You can really tell she used quality ingredients. She arrived on time and promptly got to work on helping me set up the dishes to be serve-ready. I enjoy her creativeness and multifaceted skills in the culinary arts. It isn’t just that her food and pastries are delicious; it’s that she puts her own twist into the mix to elevate otherwise ordinary food. We also ordered her desserts. I recommend you get the Mamon (Filipino Sponge Cake- She makes it individually wrapped) and Tiramisu! We also ordered decorated cake pops as giveaways (which were a hit!). The decadent flavor of the Mamon really shows her skill in baking as well. The pricing was below what I have paid for catering orders half of the size with others, which made expensing this order easy on my pocket. Her service was seamless from beginning to end. Marlo took a great deal of worry off my shoulders. She is professional and friendly. I enjoy her catering service and would recommend her to all my friends who have also had the same great service. I plan to continue to use her for any and all of my future catering needs. I couldn't be more grateful.

    We have used Paula Evans for breakfast catering for groups ranging from 10 to 30. Her breakfast breads and muffins are consistent favorites. Her dessert bars are outstanding. Paula is very easy to work with; I would highly recommend Queen Bee Desserts.

    About

    I am a San Francisco based pastry chef who is currently working in a high-end bakery refining her craft further. I have worked in various restaurants in NYC and Palm Beach for the last 5 years. I grew up in the Midwest and Chicago area, eating lots of corn and baking with my grandmother almost every day. I am so passionate about what I do and want to share that as much as possible! I aim to make well-made desserts that are very aesthetically pleasing but above all, delicious. I love to eat as much as I love to cook/bake and spend most of my free time exploring restaurants for research and traveling. I am well versed in many different areas of pastry including cakes, plated desserts, cookies, pies, and other baked goods, confections, chocolates, and ice creams. I love to teach people new things about food and baking and am always excited to open a world of possibilities up to someone!
