Alison Tucker is our family chef. She has been cooking for us once a week for over 6 months now. In one word, Alison is AMAZING! Alison always communicates the menu to me ahead of time and is very open to changing her menu, based on my preference or cravings. She is easy to be around; she stays perfectly within the agreed upon time frame, she is patient with my kids' many questions, and she is very honest. She makes high-quality food using the best ingredients that don't break the bank, perfectly according to our tastes. She has also catered parties for us. Alison is just as able to be a home chef as she is able to be a high-energy party chef who has to feed a large group of people. Alison has my highest recommendation.
We are really enjoying having Bonnie as our Personal Chef. She always arrives on time with a happy smile. Her food is very delicious as well as healthy. One of us is on a medical diet and the other has several food sensitivities. Bonnie welcomes the challenge and always finds good things for us to eat. Kathy S.
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

I wouldn’t change a thing about my interactions with Sage and Linda. Professional, personable, responsive and the food was delicious. My choices were all interesting and creative and the final meal was outstanding. I will be telling my friends about Sage and they will definitely be my first call if I’m looking for a personal chef in the future!
The dinner was cooked to perfection, best Turkey and gravy ever. We had a greek chef at the table who can be very critical and he to was pleased. Looking forward to more of Gregs cooking.
My wife and several friends who are interested in cooking watched chef Marc of Spark Private Chef Services skillfully prepare a 3 course gourmet meal which we then sat down and ate. The meal chef Marc prepared was every bit as good as ANY high end restaurant I've ever visited. Marc is an excellent communicator and took time to address questions, often in great detail. Marc also participated in a lively and wide ranging conversation around the dinner table. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.
I was lucky enough to be in the guinea pig program for some of Chef Diane’s recipes. Great flavors, real ingredients and a vegan twist on traditional southernm food makes for a great option for those on the go or with little cooking experience. Great overall value for anyone looking to take the night, or week off from cooking!
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.
