Charly was great! The food was equally as great! We made a minor (more like major) mistake or requesting Charly for a dinner for 4 people, where we actually needed it for 6! When Charly came over to start preparing, we realized we needed more food! Charly was quick to figure out how to make the courses work out with the food he already brought - he says he always comes prepared with extras! He even had extra menus, so that also worked out! He was also a good sport about stepping out with us on a quick supermarket trip and buy some extra main courses :-). All-in-all, we were impressed by his patience and preparedness even before he started cooking. As for the cooking, he prepared an amazing meal and his presentation of food is incredible! Like going to a Michelin restaurant at home. Hands down the best Chocolate lava cake we've ever had!!! Thanks Charly!!
Chris catered a dinner party at my apartment and everything was top notch. He arrived promptly, had enough time to get organized before the guests arrived, and looked very professional. The presentation of the food was as delicious as it tasted. My friend helped organize the menu and every course was more delicious than the next. I look forward to having him caterer more frequently, as well as teach cooking classes. Chris' professionalism and attentiveness was incredible. Thank you again for a wonderful evening!
My husband gave to me one 3-hours-class with Erika! More than a cooking class, I had the opportunity to talk and share ideas with someone that knows a lot about healthy food! That was great and exactly what I was looking for! During the class, I was able to raise all my doubts! Of course we prepared delicious recipes, but more important than this Erika shared all her knowledge! She gave me new ideas to improve my cooking and to prepare better (and delicious) food! Thank you, Erika! It was an amazing experience!
My friend and I took cooking classes from her. I can truly say that she was amazing. She taught us to make food we wanted to learn and it turned out amazing. She is a great teacher and makes it easy to apply what you learn from her and the things you learn in class to other recipes outside of what we did in class. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn how to cook.
via Melissa, or "Chef Melissa" as we call her, exceeded our expectations! We took her from her usual route of healthy food and asked her to run a cooking class so that children with Celiac Disease could make and enjoy cupcakes on the morning of Super Bowl Sunday. She was really flexible and provided what felt and looked like "regular" cupcakes but modified for strict gluten-free compliance and somehow they were a little healthy too! All natural. even organic and dairy-free where possible. The ages of children who attended ranged from 4-12 and she worked really well with everyone! She set up before we (event organizers) arrived and had a friendly helper with her. They were professional but the kids related to them very well. The parents were all pleased and her rate was really reasonable! Our support group doesn't make any money from events like this, parents paid her directly and she was accepting last-minute additions without any worries. I can't think of a single negative - in fact we'd like to work with her again this year! Oh, and she even took the work of finding a location away from us (we're 2 volunteers who run this group for our children and others). Next class, we'll go a little healthier and really take advantage of ALL that via Melissa has to offer our kids! :) Oh, and she's even sending us kid-friendly, healthy and gluten-free recipes for us to share with the families in our group! She really goes above and beyond!
I hired Mike to provide a private cooking lesson for my parents. He was an absolute pleasure to work with from the start, both very responsive during the planning process, and very accommodating with food preferences, allergies, etc. After the lesson my parents raved about their lesson and felt like they were spending an extra special day cooking with an old friend. Mike provided them a very memorable experience and his service comes very highly recommended!
Kim is a great cook and a great person. She gives fantastic cooking classes and teaches you hands on. She is always reliable and sweet and anyone who hires Kim would be beyond satisfied. From cooking classes to catering food, Kim is the one for you. Let Kim cook for you for your next occasion!
It's rare I get to take cooking lessons from someone that's both a chef and a nutritionist. Not only can I now use a chef's knife properly and do wonderful things with avocado and mango (including making tropical mango-avocado guacamole!), I know some tricks to make healthy foods more flavorful. Jackie provides a great experience all around!
I took a great private cooking class with Robert, making several savory Indian dishes and a delicious desert.
did a cooking class with the chef. He seemed very knowledgeable about technique and quality. He explained everything clearly. Me and my girlfriend had a great time learning how to make new dishes that we still use till this day. Chef Christopher is awesome!
Deborah was flexible about helping me to cook better, with more variety, and to learn to cook some meals that my husband loves. At first, Deborah helped me sort out my kitchen equipment and supplies at my home. The cooking techniques she taught me are ones that you just don't get by following a recipe. We will continue with weekly cooking visits to my home. She is clearly an experienced chef instructor, with a pleasant and fun personality. MAH, Fairfield County
I contacted Kathy through Thumbtack to provide a cooking class for Central Jersey Tri Delta Alumnae Chapter. Seven of us met Chef Kathy at Jersey Girl Cafe in Hamilton, NJ. We assisted Kathy and learned how to make: Tuscan white bean and organic spinach salad, Napoli Chicken, butternut squash rice pilaf and molten chocolate lava cakes. We spent about 2 hours cooking the meal and then enjoyed another hour eating it. Kathy gave great tips on everything from how to use a chef knife to the best way to keep chicken breasts from drying out in the cooking process. Along the way, she gave us information about healthy eating and freshness of vegetables we choose. Kathy has an easy-going personality. Our evening was fun, informative and delicious eating. I would definitely recommend Kathy and all her cooking/catering expertise. I look forward to doing this again sometime.
I hired chef Hellard to accommodate my business schedule and help me eat healthier. As someone who works a lot of hours I could not get out of the rut of ordering in for Lunch and Dinner and decided to try something different. A friend recommended Rae and I hired her a few days a week to cook dinner for my family and prepare a few meals I could take to work and eat at home on nights where I was working late. Rae is very accommodating and did an excellent job finding extremely healthy and delightful meals that refrigerated well and were just as fresh a few days after preparation. She has helped me transform my eating habits and I find I have a lot more energy and time to do what needs to get done every day. That being said, with a little more flexibility for family dinners Rae has come up with some extremely unique and delicious meals that my whole family enjoys. We used to go out to eat twice a week but since we hired Rae we enjoy 5 star meals from the comfort of our home. After a long day at work there is nothing I look forward to more than coming home, relaxing, and having a professionally cooked meal in which I don't have to lift a finger. I highly recommend Rae to anyone that wants to be pampered and enjoy a first class chef in the comfort of their home. On a personal level level Rae is very friendly, outgoing, and courteous. She is someone that clearly takes pride in her work and is passionate about food and experimenting with new dishes. I have always found in house help to be a bit distracting and awkward but Rae is very unobtrusive, professional, and a delight to have around the house. Oh yeah, she is also great at custom cakes, cookies, and other treats which make a great gifts come time for birthdays or other events. Just one more added level of convenience.
Jac is an excellent, creative, and fun chef. I learned a lot from our lesson and she gave me great pointers for how to improve my cooking in the future. I highly recommend her cooking classes!!!
Megan is a remarkable chef and exceptional teacher. We hired her for a private cooking class and she went above and beyond to plan - and instruct - a lesson that far exceeded our expectations. We learned a ton and had so much fun in the process!
My husband hired Gustavo to come and cook for us and another couple coming in from far away we haven't seen in many years. We didn't want to worry about cooking and really wanted to catch up with our friends. Gus had great communication with us before the event ensuring we would be getting everything we wanted. Even though we wanted a very simple meal, Gus made sure to make it extra special for us. It even turned into an impromptu mini cooking class as we all crowded around him asking questions about the food. It was a great experience and will definitely keep him in mind for future events.
