Rachel was awesome and her food was delicious. She was able to make a trip out to a remote lake house in the mountains and make a surprise 4 course meal for my fiancee and family. She used fresh, healthy, and organic ingredients and made great food that everyone enjoyed. I appreciated the set up and clean up too! It allowed us to really enjoy the celebration. I'd gladly hire Rachel as a personal chef for a future event.

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.

This year I found myself both single and retired. After 40 years of dining out or preparing pre-packaged Diet Food, I was at a loss as to how to cook nutritious, interesting and quick meals for one person. The delightful Bonnie Ward Strauss - with experience as a caterer, restaurateur, personal chef, and instructor - was eager to show me how easily I could cook a variety of meals for myself that are attractive, tasty and low-calorie. I took notes, creating a cookbook of sorts, filled with Bonnie's directions and hints about the best ingredients, cooking methods, and even grocery shopping. She let me observe sometimes; but also had me standing in front of her stove, making certain I could recreate her dishes in my own kitchen. Bonnie completely tailored my lessons to what I was hoping to achieve and the cooking skills I had at the time. She also encouraged me to experiment on my own and to look at food in a new way. It is obvious that she loves being a chef, and that she hopes other people will appreciate good food as much as she does. Bonnie is smart, kind and enthusiastic about cooking. I completely recommend her as an instructor. I also intend to take more classes with her in the very near future.

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.

    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.

      Marc is clearly a pro, very knowledgeable and able to instruct with a clear and charming style. He demonstrated and taught how to prepare a delicious meal that included a goat cheese, caramelized onion and micro green appetizer; steelhead filet over pasta and topped with a citronette relish; and an apple tartan dessert. The dinner was delicious but, more importantly the demonstrated techniques seemed straightforward and doable. I highly recommend him as an instructor, personal chef or a combination of both like he did for us. His was also reasonably priced.

      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!
