Having never used Thumbtack before I had no idea what to expect. Within one hour of registering my request, I had responses from three caterers. I chose the services of Personal Chef Lisa Pucci Delgado. I was interested in drop off catering for my daughter's baby shower. This was one of the best choices I've ever made. The food was delicious. Lisa was helpful and professional from start to finish. All of our guests were extremely impressed and wonderfully fed. All of my expectations were exceeded and I would definitely hire Chef Delgado again and enthusiastically recommend her for any event you have planned.

I am thrilled to of found chef Damon on thumbtack! He customized a clam bake for us. His thi meatballs were excellent and the pepadu peppers stuffed with goat cheese were addictive! Dinner was clams chicken a mixed roasted potatoes and corn of course. With rolls and corn bread. Then chef put together a ice cream sundae bar any kid would love! The food was beautifully displayed and was so delicious. My guest gave rave reviews and will definitely use Damon in the future. I know we will! Avery was our server for the evening and she took care of all my guests and kept everything orderly and clean. Look not further Damon is your man!

I highly recommend Gianpiero's Catering! The food is made with excellence. You will not find better quality of service and food selection with exquisite taste for the price. The Gianpiero pasta is my personal favorite and it is what they are known for.

If you are looking to expand your capabilities to prepare a wider variety of different meals, are looking to try new dishes, or are a novice chef just getting started - this is a great class to take. Abby's experience and knowledge in preparing sauces, combining spices, selecting and cooking the right cuts of meat, complimentary side dishes, and proper utilization of the kitchen "tools" is inspiring. She is extremely helpful and patient in explaining each step in the process of creating a delicious meal, while giving you enough freedom to explore individual levels of taste and learn from little mistakes you may make along the way as we all do in cooking. I truly enjoyed my time with Abby...I learned so much...and I look forward to taking more classes with her!

An amazing personal chef experience. Chef Nova came to my home and prepared an amazing dinner for my husband and I on our anniversary. She was very professional, and ensured to make a meal we would enjoy. Chef prepared for us a fresh green salad tossed in a homemade Caesar dressing, roasted asparagus, creamy shrimp Alfredo alongside a thick juicy flavorful rib eye steak. My husband and I toasted our anniversary with a white wine sangria chef prepared also. Needless to say it was an amazing evening that we will never forget.

If you’re looking for a highly customized catering experience, I can’t recommend Brian Doyle and the staff at Sow Food enough. Nothing comes prepackaged at Sow Food which makes it stand out among so many other catering companies in Northeast Ohio. Brian and his team spent a lot of time with my husband and me during our initial meetings. He came up with an extremely customized menu that was so personal to us—reflecting places we’ve visited, our sourcing values and even personal anecdotes. The team was very thorough throughout the entire planning process. Our venue was a challenge due to the fact that they had no kitchen, running water or other accommodations usually required by a catering company. As a guest, you would never know what conditions they were working under. The staff was wonderful and our appetizers, meals, cocktails and the dessert bar were one of the most memorable parts of our evening. Sow Food served as such an essential element to making our wedding day so very personal and memorable for everyone involved. Not many wedding guests gush about the food afterward, but ours sure did!
