To say that Chef Jacob exceeded our expectations is an understatement. Every detail, from the planning to the event, was completely wonderful! From my first conversation with him, I could immediately sense how professional and passionate Chef Jacob was about his work. Although I didn’t have many specifics in mind, he ensured that every detail I requested was accounted for. I asked Chef Jacob to make the 45th anniversary dinner for my parents a truly special experience, and he delivered. It was indeed so wonderful that my parents couldn’t even talk about it without crying in sharing their total amazement with the experience. They described it as one of the best experiences of their lifetime. I consider my parents some of the most excellent cooks I know, but they insisted that the meal Chef Jacob prepared was the best they’ve ever had, and that it was better than any restaurant they could have chosen. Chef Jacob helped me design a delicious menu for my parents’ dinner, and tailored it based on the information I provided regarding their overall tastes and likes. The menu included an appetizer, salad, dinner, and dessert, and every part of the meal was prepared from scratch. Beyond the care taken in preparing and cooking the meal, however, was Chef Jacob’s warm and welcoming personality. He did not hesitate to immediately begin getting to know my parents, and as they put it, they felt as though he was someone they had known for years. Chef Jacob even made sure to take pictures of them sharing their champagne toast. He did not rest until the entire meal was finished, and left the kitchen more spotless than when he arrived. At the end of the meal, he presented my parents with a gift basket, filled with edible and decorative delights, something that was planned all on his own and was a complete surprise to both me and my parents. From beginning to end, and every detail in between, Chef Jacob created an experience of a lifetime.
The organic, (including vegan and meat options) meal Chef Shaun made for our family of 15 was the most delicious and special food we've ever consumed. Shaun arrived exactly on time, brought all the necessary utensils and serving dishes, cleaned up everything, and was very pleasant. I highly recommend Shaun for any special occasion.
Very passionate and yummy cook!
We had Rich do a live cooking demonstration on flavor profiling. Not only was Rich prepared and informative, but he was lots of fun and his food was fantastic!! I loved how Rich customized his training to our likes and needs. He was very sensitive and focused on customer satisfaction. Did I say the food was amazing!! My favorite was the coffee rub flank steak!! The smoked jalapeño potato salad, watermelon 3 ways, and pineapple dessert was fabulous!! Would definitely recommend Gastro-Smith Food Services for catering and cooking classes.

Gaynor's School of Cooking is truly a wonderful culinary experience! I have taken two classes with Gaynor and learned so much in preparing, cooking/baking, culinary shortcuts, and presenting delicious dishes. Gaynor is so personable, fun, and is an amazing culinary expert!
