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!
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!!
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!
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!
What an AMAZING experience! I planned a surprise birthday party with dinner for 4 couples at our home and I cannot express how wonderful the evening was. Chef Francis was a pleasure to deal with from the begging of the process. We had several allergies to take into consideration and Francis gave us many menu choices that would work. In the end, the menu we chose and the food he prepared was amazing. Chef arrived as scheduled, he was so easy to work with and prepared some amazing dishes. Not only did he prepare, serve, clear every course and clean, he spent time talking about each amazing dish and made our guests feel like royalty. In the end, we had one of the best dinner parties ever and we do quite a few. The mood was perfect, the food amazing and Francis could not have been easier to work with. We would give him 6+ stars if we were able to and will most definitely be using his services again.
Chef Flo was invited to my apartment for a surprise birthday dinner. To be honest, I wasn't really expecting much - but boy, oh boy, were we in for a treat!! Florvil Chef Flo Valdez fed us the best poached shrimp salad (I've ever had), the best chicken florentine (I've ever had) and a chocolate mousse creme brulee (I've ever had)!!! From the crushing of the pistachios to the torching of the mousse, you can see first hand that Chef Flo pours his love into his cooking. It's an awesome experience all around - to witness the magic happen, to be served by him and to experience it first hand! It was truly an once in a lifetime opportunity. I would LOVE to host dinner parties, maybe even cooking classes with Chef Flo in the future. He left a lasting impression and even inspired us to become chefs ourselves. In fact, I tried replicating his chicken florentine the following day but I'll save that story for another time. If you are thinking about booking Chef Flo, there's nothing to think about, just do it. Not for a second will you regret it! Thank you Chef Flo for such an amazing experience. BON APPETITE!
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!
I have hired Chef Jackie Newgent to cater a party of mine in the past; everything she made was so fresh and delicious! All dishes were beautifully presented. I finally had time to take a private cooking class from her and was equally impressed. I now know the right way to hold a chef's knife, slice scallions on a bias and "cream" garlic. Cooking with Chef Jackie is a fun experience! I highly recommend both her personal chef work AND her private cooking lessons!
I hired Leo for my birthday dinner and he was fantastic. He is an excellent chef, came up with an great menu and my dinner party guests raved about him all evening long. He even did the dishes! I would highly recommend him.
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!
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!
I took a great private cooking class with Robert, making several savory Indian dishes and a delicious desert.
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 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.
Scott was awesome. He was always on time. The food he prepared was excellent. It was the first time I every had someone actually cook the food on premises. Highly recommend him and I will certainly use him again when the need arises. Bravo !!!!
I’ve been taking cooking classes with Matt for almost a year. He’s super knowledgeable, flexible and fun to cook with!
Our cooking class was awesome! Fun and easy going, but super informative with the perfect amount of structure for our group!
Anastasia was extremely patient and an expert teacher. I took one of her cooking classes and learned how to chiffonade in less than 30 seconds! I've never even been able to do that, nor did I even know what it was! She's extremely engaging, understanding and her food is DELICIOUS. I highly recommend her for any party or cooking lesson--she won't disappoint!
Andrea was really nice and had prepared everything perfectly. We had a great cooking class and enjoyed all the food and wine a lot
