We hired Chef Chris to provide some advanced cooking instruction to our daughter while preparing, together, in our home a complete dinner for the family. Chef Chris was prepared, conscientious, interested, engaged and full of ideas. Our daughter learned lots of great techniques and together they prepared a fabulous meal of French onion soup, coq au vin, gratin dauphinois, green beans with hazelnuts and chocolate souffle. We truly appreciated that Chef Chris did not provide elementary instruction but rather understood our daughter's level and interest and treated her accordingly. As a result, the evening was perfect. Excellent instruction, a delicious meal prepared superbly with very good, very fresh ingredients and an overall wonderful experience. And even afterwards, Chef Chris remained willing to answer questions and respond to emails. All very well worth it!!!
Chef Kev provided wonderful food and outstanding customer service. He was very pleasant to work with. He and his assistant, Anita, made it possible for us to relax and be good hosts while our guests were taken care of. I appreciated the worry-free night knowing that everything was handled. Anita even chatted with guests who didn't know many people to make sure they were having a good time. My favorite items were the pasta salad, pulled pork sandwiches, and the dessert tray items because they tasted great and they were easy to eat on small plates while standing up. The sparkling punch with strawberries was so good -- I think I drank a whole pitcher. Bonus: my fridge is full of awesome leftovers. I won't have to cook for a week.
Manjiri was amazing! I wanted to do something new and fun for my guy friend and it was his birthday. I reached out to a few different vegan chiefs and they were either only doing classes on the weekends or the classes were full. I insisted that we do this ON HIS BIRTHDAY, which was on a Wednesday. Manjiri didn’t tell me no. She was all for it! Though i live 55mins away it was very much worth it. I loved the fact that it was one on one with her. No other couples, no distractions! She had everything set up. All we had to bring was ourselves and containers. She explained everything before we started to prepare after that It was all hands on. She even had the recipes typed up for us! It was fun and new! The food was DELICIOUS!!!! Manjiri is very professional but she laughed with us and made us feel comfortable. He loved his surprise private cooking lesson. Thank you so much Manjiri. We appreciate everything
I arranged a private cooking class at my home for several of my friends as a Christmas gift. The event was a great success! Learned how to make pasta and other tips about cooking. Our event was last night 1/9/16. I would highly recommend Stephanie and would use her again for other events. Isabel
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Chef Jackie. She is a delightful person, who also did a lovely job cooking, serving, and cleaning up for a small (4 people) dinner party. She arrived late, but did call to let us know, and she was ready when the guest of honor and her partner arrived. The presentation was nice, and the food was good. Her chocolate mousse was outstanding! She also did a great job of cleaning up. This is not a knock, but she doesn't stand on ceremony, so if you are looking for very formal service, this isn't it (which fit my style just fine). I definitely recommend her for catering a party, and expect she would be a wonderful teacher for a cooking class.
Where do I begin?! The food is amazing! The service is very professional. The menu is a wide variety. I had an event, the food was hot and ready to be served. I will definitely be calling Grub Studio again!
JUST HIRE DANIEL! Where do I begin to describe the services provided by Daniel? He was PROFESSIONAL, COURTEOUS, HELPFUL and JUST GREAT He should give lessons in "BarTending with Excellent Customer Service." #VERY TASTY COCKTAILS #DELECTABLE MOCKTAILS Daniel visited the site a few days before hand to decide how he would set up his station. He took all the stress out of deciding what signature drinks we should serve, based on theme, budget, number of guests expected... He provided a list of what we would need to purchase based on scale of party. He hand makes fresh juices as mixers and sets up a thoughtful, first rate display. HIS SERVICE IS SECOND TO NONE He promised that he would arrive 2 hours before the event to set up and was here an extra hour EARLY. His input and assistance is invaluable. His interactions with our guest was what one would expect at a 7 Star Hotel or Restaurant; he was engaging and appropriate. Seriously, no one else should be a contender for your event. If you want to enjoy your event and have guests call you the following day to compliment the services provided by your bartender, who they have "Officially Adopted" USE THE SERVICES OF F&Btainment by Daniel
Nasrin cooks delicious organic dinners for our family of four each week. The food is excellent and she focuses on healthy, vegetarian food for us. We couldn't live without her!
The cooking lesson was for my teen daughter. Mary was very accommodating. She was well prepared and very professional. She taught my daughter with patience and she made it fun for her. She taught her terminology and safety, as well as helped her to create a wonderful meal. My daughter will continue taking culinary classes with Mary and I would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends.
Our daughter loved her Finding Dory cake! It was more than we had hoped for. The details were amazing, the work was of the highest quality, and it tasted as good as it looked. We got exactly what we asked for in regards to the flavors and filling. We would highly recommend one of these amazing cakes for your special celebration.
Iyea is wonderful! She has so many cooking ideas that easy fun and quick so you're not in the kitchen all day. She knows great cooking tips that you wouldn't normally see on recipes. I love that she has a bubbly and positive spirit. She made cooking fun for me when I thought it was just stressful and discouraging. I love cooking now. It is like my new hobby!
As a single male who can't cook and has no time to do so properly, my diet has suffered due to years of compromising meals like pizza and takeout Chinese, etc. Therefore I cannot tell you how happy I am about Scott and the service he provides. I save money over eating out and delivery and the food Scott makes is immeasurably better, healthier and prepared by an obviously talented chef. The food is amazing; the ingredients are fresh and clearly chosen with care; Scott is charming and delivers it to you direct. It's pretty great and highly recommended.
Esther was AMAZING. We contracted her for a 3 1/2 day corporate and professional training retreat for 18 people. She stayed with us in the retreat center the entire time. She created the most delicious and healthy breakfasts, lunches and dinners (plus snacks) for the entire time. The kitchen was always impeccable and her demeanor always joyous and alive. She also gave us a little nutrition workshop that we all enjoyed -- fascinating. I highly recommend Esther for a single event or longer. She is a delight and a tremendous chef.
As an educator, Chef Julian is outstanding, particularly with regards to excellence, creativity, discipline and adherence to historical and traditional cooking. Chef relates to young people exceptionally well and conveys, and expects an extremely high standard for dignity, respect and excellence both in and out of the kitchen, As a chef, Julian creates truly exceptional culinary creations that are well founded in traditional American cooking but at the same time are modern, creative and innovative.
I've been lucky enough to have more than one cooked meal by Taheerah. Her breadth of knowledge doesn't stop at what just tastes good. Taheerah also places a great deal of value in nutrition—not only preparing meals but educating on the choices behind the ingredients. She has the ability to cook for large groups, but also prepare meals for a more intimate setting. It's really fun to watch her work in the kitchen! Taheerah's training and skills are evident as she moves from prep to plate without ever missing a beat. I recommend Taheerah to anyone who likes delicious food. Try the pizza!
I have come back to Crystal for private cooking and baking lessons as well as private cake decorating lessons. The photo attached is from my first lesson with gum paste. She was very patient and did such a wonderful job putting some really sophisticated techniques into terms that I could understand and execute despite my limited experience with formal culinary training. Love her!!!
Chef Curry is an amazing chef whose passion, creativity and business sense make him a top contender in his field. As an event planner, a large part of my job is to seek out chefs and caterers who are committed to providing quality healthy and tasty meal options. Chef Curry is an innovator who can both create a tailored menu or spruce up an existing menu and make it new again. From working with him on a recent wedding in New York, I witnessed how skillful he is at exceeding expectations with the production of spectacular dishes that everyone in attendance thoroughly enjoyed.

Well, we're good-hearted people. We cook dinners, or we can come to you to cook. We bring our own food. Thanks.

I am a private cook. I would plan a menu and do all the shopping, then prepare and cook the meal. I then would clean up. I have been trained in classical French, and I am a Greek. I can cook anything. I can do a week's worth of cooking, a dinner party, or a holiday event.
I took Dorinas Functional Home Cooking Course through the local adult school last fall. I have continued to take weekly classes since then. Dorinas emphasis is on cooking quick, nutritious meals using wholesome ingredients. Her forte is Italian cooking but she has a broad knowledge of foods and other styles of cooking. Her classes are well organized. Topics touched on during class include the choice of ingredients, possible variations and substitutions, nutrition, tricks of the trade, and tips on where to shop. Dorina is friendly and engaging and her classes are informative and enjoyable. Her class is the perfect starting point for someone with little experience in cooking who wants to learn the basics. Her class would also be valuable for a person with some experience in the kitchen who wants to broaden their perspective.

I am a home cook with a long-time interest in cooking. My husband and I have been cooking, modifying and developing recipes for over 2 decades. I have a particular interest in healthy, non GMO and low to no-meat recipes that often include gluten-free options. I have a large garden during the growing season and try to incorporate and just pick foods into meals whenever available.
