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.

Chef Steven was very helpful in teaching us different methods and tips on preparing the meal. He was on time, well prepared and let us help him when we wanted to! The meal was delicious and beautifully put together! I would definitely recommend Chef Steven for any kind of dinner party, cooking lessons, or to prepare foods for the week for your family.

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!

I worked with Chef Rock to plan my mother's 80th birthday party. We had 20 people and it is always difficult to please everyone; however, Chef Rock was able to plan a menu that was versatile and tasty! The chef made sure he considered people's diet and health needs before he planned the meals. I loved that Jim was completely prepared and self-sufficient, so it didn't matter how well the kitchen was stocked (or not). We had a taco bar and enchiladas one night and I was really impressed that the chef served homemade tortillas and he roasted the fresh chills. The following evening we had a beautiful rib roast with all the trimmings, fresh vegetables and potatoes dauphinoise. I was really impressed with Chef Rock's attention to detail, including warmed plates, the tastiest condiments and dips, as well as plenty of fresh fruit. I highly recommend hiring a personal chef for this kind of event since we only had 2 1/2 days to spend quality time with each other and travelled from five different states. Chef Rock also made sure everything was ready depending on our schedule. If we hadn't made this arrangement with our chef, I'm sure we would have been eating dinner at midnight! Luckily we had plenty of room in the house so the chef could stay the whole time, making coffee in the morning and providing all the clean-up. Thanks Jim for making this great event so memorable and special.

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!!!!

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.

Donna has been preparing weekly meals for our family as a private chef for the last year and a half. A tireless and consummate professional, she has proved to be extremely imaginative in her menu design, and flexible in accommodating individual preferences. Her meals possess a certain elegant class and are delicious. We recommend her whole-heartedly!

Chef Yuri was an excellent find and we were extremely happy with her services! Our guests all commented on how good the food tasted and even when the party started to dwindle down and after she was given a chance to leave early, she stayed professional and insisted that she stay for the entire duration. Class act!

I have a subway, Chester chicken, plus a full menu option. I have the ability to do so much more in the catering line -- meetings, parties and more. I deliver and set up, serve (if needed), tear down and clean up. I come with many great recommendations.
