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!

We hired Erika to conduct an interactive cooking class for our daughters 16th birthday. Erika was great with the girls and they all had an amazing time - all while learning to cook and about nutrition. Erika created a menu that was teenage friendly so the girls would really enjoy the food and experience.

Francis was great. He offered excellent menu choices and even worked with us to have extra side dishes our kids would like while still participating in the 'big meal'. He took care of everything from start to finish including serving us on our deck. We would recommend him to anyone and hope to have him create another meal for a future special occasion.

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!

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!

Chef Craig was great - he was extremely responsive during the booking process and listened well, taking the time to get to understand what we were looking for in terms of dinner. We left most of the menu details up to him, and were pleasantly surprised. He made a full meal, including a delicious braised short rib meal for the adults and a yummy homemade Mac and cheese for the kids. He was very nice to talk to and we enjoyed having him cook for us!

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!

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!

Michelle's food is delicious for sure, but there's so much more to her creations in the kitchen. She's full of wisdom on how food can help our bodies to function in the best possible way, and you honestly feel better than before after eating one of her meals. By the way, she understands how to get kids to eat healthy food as well. My family of two adults and three picky wild ones can't wait for our next meal by Michelle!

I took a cooking class with James which was wonderful. He planned a terrific menu, at Sur La Table. We learned knife skills and some great new recipes. After this class, my cooking club hired James to do a class at someone's home. We planned the menu , together, and all 6 of us took part in this great evening of slicing, dicing and baking.

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.

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!
