Alison has been terrific to work with. We have used her in a few different capacities in the last 2 weeks...private chef for a dinner party, caterer for a holiday cocktail party and chef for delivered meals. Her food has been delicious, and she is really easy to work with. She is open to suggestions and will also give her opinion on what she thinks will work best depending on the event. She is quick to respond, always professional and reasonably priced. I plan on using her again and recommend you give her a try.
I have enjoyed working with Private Chef in the class setting and on a personal chef level. She is knowledgeable, well prepared, creative, and inspiring. I would recommend her to anyone!
Our non-profit had 2 wonderful events with Mon Chef! We had a farm to table lunch at our farm, and he cooked on the spot with all of the available vegetables and made very delicious 5 course meal: Kale chips, Corn soup, Caprese salad, Squash risotto, and 3 Sorbets from our cantaloupe, honeydew, and watermelons. EVERYONE that participated was blown away at his talent and taste of the foods. The event went so well, we invited Mon Chef to replicate the same lunch for our staff to partake and enjoy. Mon Chef is very professional, has fantastic presentation, and created an ambiance that was unique and special. I recommend his services to any event, private party, or individual. I cant say enough about Mon Chef! Partners In Careers

I began training with Laura December 2017. I have been impressed by Laura’s work ethic and sincere desire to help her clients meet their goals. Laura never misses an appointment and is always on time. I like to know that I can rely on her to be there because that motivates me to never miss my appointments. Laura is very personable, not judgmental at all, and always in good spirits. Laura has helped with weight training and with my overall fitness and health. It has been so much fun! I have had my strength and muscle size increase more than ever before! It is so nice to have a personal trainer that takes a huge interest in your goals. Laura stays constantly focused on your whole training session. I love that she is always getting the next machine or weights ready so that we can jump into the next set. Laura makes every minute of training count. Having a personal trainer is a way of life to me now. If you are committed as much as she is, having Laura on your side as a personal trainer will reap big rewards for you.
I never imagined my dream wedding like a lot of girls do. I always figured a wedding would be between the bride and the groom and never thought much about feeding guests or even having a beautiful dress. But, in January of 2016 I set the date to finally walk down the aisle. I had six months to plan the day's events. It seemed more than daunting to plan everything. As a woman pushing 40 with a full time career and a child to raise, having the "perfect wedding" was definitely not a priority to me. Also, with finances being an issue, i certainly was counting my pennies and not expecting anything fancy at all when I added everything up. A few months before the wedding I reached out to Danielle and Austin, knowing they were chefs and had recently been married themselves, to get a few money savings tips and maybe some free advice on how I could feed about 100 people on a tight budget. I was going to attempt a potluck wedding. That first phone call with Danielle changed everything. I let her know my situation and I laid it all out for her. Bottom line, I wanted a no frills- "just feed the people" wedding reception! By the end of that fateful phone call, Danielle offered me peace of mind in my menu choices, awesome tips on what foods go well with others and what doesn't and she even provided me surprising comfort with a particularwedding ceremony detail that I had been worried about. Her advice on a personal level and a professional level relieved me so much. At that point I realized I NEEDED to hire her officially and not just skim her knowledge for free advice! Ha! Shortly after I officially hired her, she provided a beautiful wedding menu just for me that expressed the casual feeling I wanted but added TONS of class! She met with me briefly before the wedding to go over a few more details. Even during that brief meeting I was left at ease knowing she fully understood my plans and trusted her completely. I wasn't worried a bit. A week before the wedding, the unthinkable happened. My outdoor picnic wedding had to be cancelled due to rain. Danielle and Austin were quick to make all appropriate adjustments and eased my mind about the sudden change of plans as well. On my wedding day, I was so happy to walk into the kitchen that morning and see her and Austin's smiling faces. They both seemed SO cool and relaxed. Neither one of them had that "hurried" chef look. They created an amazing spread with such elegant details that really surprised me! Cucumber-melon water, anyone? Healthy and savory quinoa pasta? Sheesh! What a TREAT! When it was time for the champagne toast, Danielle brought my glass to me with such a gracious and refreshed smile that I didn't even notice that she had been hustling as she helped serve the rest of my guests their drinks. Just pure professionalism and talent. Danielle and Austin have a unique talent of helping their client clarify their menu ideas and bring them into fruition. They took a scary and possibly pathetic wedding day and turned it into a memorable and elegant experience. Thank you guys! We will ALWAYS hire you and would be happy to recommend your incredible gifts to all of our friends and family
Alton Garcia made our wedding spread. My husband and I love Spanish food and after a consultation was with Garcia, it was decided that tapas style food would be had. There were whole roasted chicken, tortilla Espanola, whole grilled artichokes and various roasted veggies, mussels, cheeses & breads, and numerous sauces to pair with the food (think Romesco & aiolis), among other beautiful and well-thought-out foods. Our guests were amazed with the spread (we heard multiple times that it was the best wedding food ever), as were we. Garcia also made it very affordable for what was delivered. It also doesn't hurt that Garcia is a sweet man and a pleasure to work with. I recommend him highly.
I have had the opportunity to enjoy Eats Creative Cuisine on multiple occasions. Whether it is a catered wedding or a little picnic dinner, it has been incredible EVERY SINGLE TIME.
Doe is an independently owned and operated bakery in Portland, Oregon. We are dedicated to providing your ideal pastries for any occasion. Our mantra is to support quality farms, mills, and dairies in the Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington areas.
Elaine and Austin make hiring a caterer easy. They did an excellent job between providing us with different menu options, helping us work within our budget, and answering any questions along the way. She made a salad with fresh cesar dressing and a meat lasagna that had everyone coming back for seconds. We look forward to working with them again in the future and appreciate their professionalism and time investment in helping us pull of a wonderful event with no hiccups.
We have not yet worked together (we will in a couple of weeks), but Chance's phone call was outstanding and he has a real feel for what I want. Can't wait to work with him!
I provide home-cooked meals to clients, which I deliver personally. I will accommodate 2-20 persons. My prices are generally low, with incredible quality.
Brittany Baldwin of Portland Home Chef is an inspiring and encouraging teacher. She listened to what my needs, objectives, fears and competencies/challenges are and then created a learning menu designed to give me just what I needed. I wish I could have her in my home every night cooking with me! I came away from our session empowered about my capacity to prepare delicious, nourishing food for my son and me. I have new skills and insights--and recipes--and a renewed sense of fun about being in my kitchen. And now, every time my son (who is 2) eats something that tastes good, he asks if Brittany has prepared it. Plus, Brittany is a wonderful, easygoing person who is just enjoyable to have in your kitchen. This is an extraordinary value.

I have been a vegan, raw foods, and macrobiotic chef for over 10 years. Currently I offer personal chef services catered to vegan, raw vegan, macrobiotic, gluten-free, and other dietary needs and preferences. I love to teach cooking classes for these style foods to individuals or groups! I am also a great person to help you set up a holistic kitchen, teach you how to shop for vegan foods suited to your needs, learn DYI techniques like dehydrating, canning, sprouting, pickling and more! I will soon be offering yoga, personal training and other bodywork as well.
