I connected with Chef Tony via Thumbtack many months ago because I was interested in hiring a personal chef for a "girls' weekend" I was hosting in July. After communicating with Chef Tony just a few times, I knew, without a doubt, he was the right person for the job. Not only does have fantastic credentials, he also has a personality to match! Needless to say, my guests and I were beyond pleased with the meal and service provided by Chef Tony, not to mention Diane, the most amazing server I've ever met/seen! The food prepared by Chef Tony was absolutely delicious. That in itself would have made the evening great. BUT...when you couple that with the fact that he's a professional sommelier and does wine pairings throughout the entire dinner, the event was a huge success! I would absolutely hire Chef Tony again and have already recommended him to several friends.

We had the BEST time learning how to cook with Allison! She arrived on time and got right to work teaching us how to prepare our meal. Allison was kind enough to sharpen my dull kitchen knives as well. We had a great conversation and sharing stories (Her's were awesome to listen to) as she taught us how to prepare our meal. It felt like we had all known each other for years :) I could probably write all afternoon about the valuable insights into cooking that Allison shared with us. At the end of it all, we enjoyed the most amazing meal I think I have ever had. Thank you so much, Allison! We will definitely have you back again to teach us much more!

Chef Stephanie took on my project for a last minute holiday dinner party. I chose her because her menu was creative. When I requested to go with a beef dish, she made it happen and it was soooo flavorful. I stepped out on a limb having never met her or any recommendations from friends. I'm glad I did. I would hire her services again. Again, the food was delicious.

Missy catered two parties for us; a four course dinner party complete with bar service and butlered hor d’oeuvres, and a small family gathering buffet style for my daughters christening. For both parties Missy exceeded all expectations I had. I was able to relax an enjoy the party without worrying about food or service. Every bite of food was delicious and Missy was professional and fun to work with. Numerous guests requested her business card for their own events. I can’t think of anything negative about either event and will definitely be calling her for all future needs.

We purchased this as a gift for our boss and he could not say enough good things about the experience with Chef Cindi. From the food to the service to the interaction being just right, it was an evening our boss thoroughly enjoyed! In fact, He liked it so much so that he's hired him back for another night. I will definitely recommend Chef Cini to others.

    Chef Mike was amazing! His food was flawless and every meal was more delicious than the next. He was able to accommodate some of our dietary restrictions, provide fresh foods and deliver maximum flavor with every bite. It was decadent. My friends and I felt like queens for a weekend. We will be recommending Mike to our friends and family.

    I am a highly disorganized and messy person. Yet when I work with Lori I always feel able to confront the task at hand and we inevitably make significant progress. Lori has helped me de-clutter, prepare for taxes, and generally pull myself together. Integral to what I am able to accomplish when we work together is the fact that she is non judgemental. We never talk about why I can't seem to do certain seemingly simple tasks, we just get down to the business at hand. Lori also has a fantastic library of resources. A+ all the way for Lori Olk!!!!

    Not only is David's food absolutely delicious, the presentation is always amazing as well. David has a gift of being able to put any sort of ingredients together and make it a five star meal. I have never been disappointed by his cooking. Even when I have tried foods prepared by him that I was sure I didn't like (as a matter of personal preference), I was surprised that not only did I enjoy the food but I reached for more. You can't go wrong with hiring David for any type of even! You won't be disappointed!

    Finished my first week with Chef Kimberly and I am very pleased with my meals. I hate veggies and asked Chef Kim to sneak some in and she has done just that. Chef Kimbery is very easy to work and her meals are tasty and filling!! Cant wait to see whats for lunch this week.

    We needed help with food preparation when I needed surgery. Matt has good menu choices, and the price is quite reasonable. He delivered some great food on Tuesday and we are really looking forward to continued food deliveries from Luna Cooking.

    Great hands-on teacher who really knows what he's doing. Plus, the food is sooo good!! From ingredients to cooking methods, this is the best cooking class I ever had. I learned new techniques and how to properly season, prep, and cook veggies and proteins. Definitely recommend and I'll work with him again soon. Perfect for a gift, meal prep, or to cook a whole meal for a party.
