    Fixated Food Personal Chef & Catering Services

    (22 reviews)

    My work stands out because I believe that every event that I cater is unique. I create one-of-a-kind menus and quotes based on the customers actual needs, budgets, and the foods that they like or want. The fact that my food and services can bring smiles to faces and the fact that teaching someone basic skills can sometimes change their lives.

    Kimberley Ashlee Catering

    (17 reviews)

    We prepare our food from scratch, not using frozen or pre-made products as many other caterers do. We also source many of our products from local farms and producers. We can offer you personal chef services for one person or more up to groups of 125 people. We focus on smaller groups as our cuisine is prepared just prior to serving, bringing you and your guests the freshest possible product. We offer full-service catering and serve all of our cuisine in high-quality serving dishes such as chaffers, glass and china platters, wood blocks, and individual steel bowls etc. We do not do disposables for your event unless you request drop-off. We also offer Reidel glassware, contemporary white china, stainless steel flatware, and linens upon request for groups of 24 or less. For larger groups, we handle rental of your equipment. We also offer full-bar catering services, one of few caterers that do. From full-service bars to just providing a bartender, just let us know how we can assist. Not only have we been in the business for 25 years and enjoy working with a variety of clients with different needs, seeing the satisfaction from our clients after the enjoy our cuisine is the greatest reward.

    Sage and Spirit Catering

    (15 reviews)

    I have been told that people can taste the love and passion that I put into my creations. I take this as the greatest of compliments because it means that I have been able to create a dish that has awakened their senses. I draw from a wide pallet of flavor profiles when I cook, Pan Asian, Indian, World Fusion, Southern BBQ, American Regional. I also have an extensive knowledge of the laws of Kashrut and am able to pretty much make any dish Kosher (no I can not make bacon kosher) Here is a snippet from a review of my food from a James Beard award winning blogger Our chef, Craig Kravitz, began the conversation a week in advance of the meal by asking what our “dream meal” would be, but we decided to let him prepare his signature dishes, which have a Southeast Asian influence, with astounding results. The three-course meal began with a huge bowl of mussels in a complex green curry , continued with lemongrass chicken thighs, and concluded with thin-sliced beef in a rich and comforting red curry sauce with sautéed bok choy on the side. Kravitz was friendly and personable, and the meal moved along at a comfortable pace. I have a passion for creating food that awakens people's senses. It gives me the greatest pride to see the smiles that appear on people's faces after they take the first bite of something that I have created.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Chef Jae

(10 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I love the idea that I truly service a need, be it catering weddings, servicing birthday parties and baby showers, or creating unique menus for dietary requirements. With all these, I know and I'm sure that I am helping other people with my skills and talent with food. I get to express my creativity through my work and at the same time assist other people in making their day or celebration extra special.

What or who inspired you to start your business?

I was inspired to start my business because I was motivated to use my platform to encourage others to follow their dreams. I have private clients, and I get to expose them to a unique environment and different kinds of food they normally wouldn't have the chance to know. I want to help as many people as possible through food, no matter if it's an employee or homeless person. I'm here servicing the need to feed. Food unifies us since almost everything is celebrated with food.
