I connected with Chef Tony via Thumbtack many months ago because I was interested in hiring a personal chef for a "girls' weekend" I was hosting in July. After communicating with Chef Tony just a few times, I knew, without a doubt, he was the right person for the job. Not only does have fantastic credentials, he also has a personality to match! Needless to say, my guests and I were beyond pleased with the meal and service provided by Chef Tony, not to mention Diane, the most amazing server I've ever met/seen! The food prepared by Chef Tony was absolutely delicious. That in itself would have made the evening great. BUT...when you couple that with the fact that he's a professional sommelier and does wine pairings throughout the entire dinner, the event was a huge success! I would absolutely hire Chef Tony again and have already recommended him to several friends.
Our experience with Anton and his assistant was beyond amazing. Everyone has an expectatIon of how they want their event to be presented. From a sit down dinner wIth cocktail hour for 25 people in our home for thanksgiving. The PRESENTATION was phenomenal. it looked like a Norman Rockwell painting, the turkey, the ham, the gluten free dishes, all the family favorites that we requested. Done to perfection. This was the first holiday meal that I was able to enjoy my guests and not worry about cleaning up afterwards. Everyone raved about the food. Plenty of leftovers that didn't go to waste. We had take home containers for everyone. That was such a hit. That about 10 later we had our company holiday feast in our home catered by Anton. He was able to cater to all dietary needs. From vegan, to paleo, to very upscale palate pleasing dishes. So we challenged Anton one more time, for Christmas eve with our loved ones of 27 give or take. We asked him to do the Italian feast of the seven fishes. Omg is all I can say. What a presentation, from the cocktail hour before dinner, then our sit down dinner with mussels,scallops,clams, and crab. Then we had wrapped filet mignon cooked to order for each person along with grilled vegetables and an assortment of gluten free and vegan dishes to please everything. Even the homemade ice cream that Anton makes himself is yummy. He does not rush you to finish and I appreciated sooo Much. We had lil ones to tend to, so we didn't get a chance to all sit at once sometimes. Anton made us feel like a royalty in our castle, and he was our personal chef. If we could rate him at ten stars, that still wouldn't be enough. He is very versatile in his cooking and preparation and presentation of the meals he prepares. I recently switched sd cards in my phone, or I would have posted some pictures. When I locate,I will post. Price wise, he is reasonable and will work within your Budget and still give you the most enjoyable experience. Champagne dreams and cavier wishes should be one of Anton tag lines. I will say, in the future, the sooner you can plan your event, the better your chances of having Anton fulfill your desire to WOW your guests. Thank You Anton and family, for making our holiday gatherings something to remember .
Kim has been helping me support my close friend in battling breast cancer. Kim has been preparing wonderful meals for the family, including fun bites and snacks for 3 kids. Everyone has really loved the food, and Kim has been very helpful and flexible in meal planning. I'm so glad I found Kim, her hard work has been making a huge difference for my friend during a difficult time.
For years Chef Sarah has been my "go to" person in all aspects of my holiday meals and platters, and has never disappointed my family or my guests. However, as my life gets busier and my time in the kitchen gets shorter, her Chef services have come to my rescue for everyday meals as well. Once you have tasted her cooking, you will want her to create (from scratch!) all meals served from your kitchen. Hands down the freshest, tastiest (and lovingly presented) food you will ever eat, and crave long after your plates are empty and your belly is full. You will never regret having Chef Sarah as your personal chef. She takes away all the stress of prepping for any gathering, any size crowd, any menu and any budget....leaving you free and relaxed to enjoy yourself, and your guests...making happy memories for you and yours....That IS what it's all about, right?
Complete five star service. Every meal is crafted with its best organic ingredients and interesting creative flavors. You won’t be disappointed!!!
Lisa was a pleasure to work with. From the planning stage to clean up, she provided my group of 15 a terrific, fun, and tasty meal. Lobsters were cooked perfectly and her peel and eat shrimp were outstanding. If you are looking for a custom event, Lisa is your caterer.
Long story short found thumbtack online when searching for a drop off caterer for Thanksgiving less than 2 weeks prior to event. Eric called almost within minutes of my post. I took a day to talk things over with the family then called Eric back to hire Holy Smokers BBQ and Catering for my event. Price VERY reasonable; delivered on time; hot and ready to eat buffet style Salad was accompanied by their HOME MADE dressing;.Turkey was moist and tasty(even carved already);Pork loin best I have ever tasted ;.cornbread stuffing, greens and mac n cheese cooked perfect. The home made apple pie was out of this world; The sock it to me cake was even great for breakfast the next morning! I feel blessed to have found Holy Smokers BBQ. No dishes no cooking ! Best Thanksgiving in a long time. I will be calling them to book another family meal real soon. Wish I could give them 10 stars
We purchased this as a gift for our boss and he could not say enough good things about the experience with Chef Cindi. From the food to the service to the interaction being just right, it was an evening our boss thoroughly enjoyed! In fact, He liked it so much so that he's hired him back for another night. I will definitely recommend Chef Cini to others.
Enjoi came out to our home and prepared such a delicious meal. Ronda was a pleasure to work with during the process of putting the menu together. Marcus is such a great chef! Professional, courteous... I can not say enough good things about Enjoi!!! Absolutely Loved!!!
John cooked for my 6th wedding anniversary. He Took his time to sit down with me to come up with a menu that me and my husband would enjoy. We started off simple with a salad where chef John used his homemade vinaigrette, the main course was a little more complex as he did lamb/ lobster surf and turf and very delicious and we even ended with dessert that was to die for! John cooked everything in our own kitchen which was amazing. Him and his team stayed throughout the whole meal and cleaned up everything I think our kitchen was cleaner than when they got there haha It was a great pleasure to have John and his team cook for us!
Not only is David's food absolutely delicious, the presentation is always amazing as well. David has a gift of being able to put any sort of ingredients together and make it a five star meal. I have never been disappointed by his cooking. Even when I have tried foods prepared by him that I was sure I didn't like (as a matter of personal preference), I was surprised that not only did I enjoy the food but I reached for more. You can't go wrong with hiring David for any type of even! You won't be disappointed!
We needed help with food preparation when I needed surgery. Matt has good menu choices, and the price is quite reasonable. He delivered some great food on Tuesday and we are really looking forward to continued food deliveries from Luna Cooking.
Tony has done parties for me, some under difficult conditions, and created some great memories for me and my friends. Whether its a pool party or a sit down dinner the food and service where excellent. I especially appreciated how hard he worked with me in terms of my budget and expectations. He makes the planning fun and the event something special..
We have responded to Thumbtack's request to rate Mako Restaurant weeks ago. The catering service was excellent. Pat Brenan
John Burwell (JB) created a magnificent Valentine's Day menu around my wife's "likes"--steak & peach moscato. He arrived, set-up, and created an outstanding 3-course meal. He arrived to a clean kitchen and when he left hours later, it looked as if he'd never been there. JB is a friendly, down-to-earth guy who provides an excellent upscale service. I tell everyone I know about him and am thinking of reasons to hire him again.
I have medical conditions that leave me exhausted after working 8 hour days. As a result, I would not have the energy to cook healthy meals. Our dinners included fast food, delivery or pre-packaged meals. When I found out that Traci, a friend of my sister, was in culinary school I approached her about becoming our personal chef and preparing 4-5 meals a week that are either ready to cook with minimal efforts or only needs to be reheated. In January 2015, we hired Traci as our personal chef. I provided Traci with some of our favorite recipes. A shared Pinterest board was also created to share online recipes. As my husband is a picky eater, finding recipes that he approves has been a challenge. Traci quickly learned acceptable foods and has been great about suggesting substitutions for recipes. After 2 months of working with Traci, I had to go on a low sodium diet. She had no problems modifying meals so they would be lower in sodium. Each week Traci prepares the next weeks meal plan by reviewing our approved recipes and requests for repeated meals. We review the meal plan and make changes as needed. Traci purchases the food while considering ingredients that she still has in stock. On the following day, she prepares the meals in her house. The meals are placed into glass dishes or covered disposable foil serving trays with copy of the recipes attached. After the meals are ready, I pick up them up at her house. The meals are then kept in the refrigerator (or the freezer) until I am ready to cook/heat it. We provide Traci feedback on each meal. Traci accepts our feedback well and takes into consideration our requests when making the meal again. The meals have been delicious and most have earned a rating of 5 out of 5 stars. The meals not receiving 5 stars were not a result of Tracis meal preparation skills but due to the recipe, such as the seasonings. Prior to hiring Traci I was never fond of left-overs. Now I find myself excited to have left-overs. Traci has even gotten my husband to eat foods I never expected. My husband has eaten and really liked meals prepared by Traci that he did not like when made by myself or family. He has even eaten vegetables that he has refused to eat as he thought he didnt like them. I highly recommend Traci Zammetti as a personal chef. Not only are our meals better tasting than I would make, but we are healthier as a result of the healthier meals and less stress in our lives.
Great hands-on teacher who really knows what he's doing. Plus, the food is sooo good!! From ingredients to cooking methods, this is the best cooking class I ever had. I learned new techniques and how to properly season, prep, and cook veggies and proteins. Definitely recommend and I'll work with him again soon. Perfect for a gift, meal prep, or to cook a whole meal for a party.
The dishes are delicious and fresh. The lunch dish I ordered over the weekend was hot and fresh. My favorites are the coconut rice, chicken and ribs! I can't forget about the coco bread! It's so addictive! If you're looking for authentic Honduran cuisine or just a good home cooked meal, this is the place to order from!!
I have used Let's Cultivate Food for catering as well as a personal chef's dinner. On both occasions, Yoon was really great to work with. She was quick to respond and also very accommodating of the large party we had. She worked with us to fit the theme of the party and was so easy to work with. The food was delicious and so creative! For the personal chef's dinner, we selected the Asian Fusion Flair option which was very tasty. The four course meal was prepared, cooked and also we had no clean up to do. I would definitely recommend the personal chef's dinner as a fun group event or even a creative date option.

So, basically, I service with a smile!
