Karen baked 2 marvelous triple layered chocolate cakes and a Lemon Chiffon cake that were breathtaking! The moist texture and taste were fantastic and the highest trained pastry chef could not achieve the perfection that she did. The apple pie, garlic bread and cookies were all a labor of love that could not be equaled. The many hours of dedication and pride that went into the production of these delightful deserts were done with great care and meticulous personal touch that only a PROFESSIONAL WHO STANDS ABOVE ALL OTHERS CAN ACHIEVE. The garlic bread came with a personal hand written note of directions so that we could enjoy the full taste of a product that was second to none! I texted her the night before our event and she was baking to ensure that we got the freshest pastries,and pie and she was in her kitchen well after midnight to provide us with her expert,personal, and professional service. The day of our event she drove the 28 miles one way to ensure that the highest quality was maintained and she assisted in the unloading of the products and personal instructions to help us. She is without a doubt one of the most professional caterer I have had the privilege to know in over 40 years of my own food service experience. It is an HONOR that I highly recommend KAREN for any and all food service events that one may have.Samuel A Ballard
We had a fantastic experience with Kate in my home. I can't say enough great things about her. Four of us thoroughly enjoyed our Thai cooking lesson and a delicious meal afterwards. She was extremely knowledgeable and shared many great tips. She was personable and fun to be around, too. I can't wait to schedule another lesson for a different cuisine; she has many different areas of expertise.
Katie was personable, professional, and fun. She created a custom menu for a cooking lesson with a bachelorette party of 10 girls. Her pricing was fair and the food was delicious! I would recommend or plan an event with Katie any time.
I was so excited to find a cooking instructor that does house calls. What a fun way to learn how to cook. I learned tips and tricks of handling a knife and now enjoy the prep work of cooking. I was taught how to cut up a chicken and how to make simple and tasty recipes to get me through a busy work week. I look forward to see what is on the menu for our upcoming Italian cooking lesson. Pasta from scratch perhaps. Can't wait!
Susanna was amazing! She came to our home and gave me and my husband a private cooking lesson for our first wedding anniversary. She was great at showing us how to do things like chop or mix up pasta dough. And the meal was to die for! Gnocchi in a brown butter and safe sauce, pappardelle with shrimp gremolata, and tiramisu for dessert. Delish!
My brother and I hired Cindy to do a cooking lesson with my parents for our dad's birthday. She spent hours teaching them how to make their favorite dishes, and they haven't stopped talking about how much they enjoyed the experience! Thank you so much, Cindy!
Chef Brian provided a cooking lesson for my junior girl scout troop. The girls were all excited about the prospect of meeting a Brian and couldn't wait for our monthly meeting. Brian showed them how to prepare 3 easy, healthy snacks. He provided great instructions, involving all the girls in each project. He shared kitchen safety tips as well. The food was great. They girls will be able to make these dishes at home. Brian has a great big personality and was a resounding success with my girls. Rowena Y.
Ahhhh.. Maria is seriously the best cook and baker ever! I had an event and had her make breakfast for 50 people. She made a wonderful sausage braid. She baked a delicious selection of muffins, breads and pasteries. Her breakfast was the talk of our meeting.
Samantha made a delicious naked cake for me. I had a vision and she made it a reality. Perfect Birthday cake not a piece was left everyone enjoyed her baking!!
Amanda is awesome! Whether you're looking for healthy meal prep/delivery or just need someone to cater a dinner with friends at your house -- she can handle it! Amanda prepares all of my meals and delivers them to me weekly, so I always know that I have delicious and healthy meals ready when it is time to eat. I just grab the labeled containers that she leaves in my refrigerator, and I'm ready to go. I have almost no time to prepare food, so this is extremely valuable to me. Amanda discusses my tastes and cravings, and designs a custom meal plan that is delicious and well-balanced. She has opened my eyes to so many healthy alternatives to foods that I love and to all sorts of new things that I never thought I would like. She always answers my questions and is really thoughtful in making sure I enjoy each meal and have something delicious for each day of the week. I can't recommend Amanda enough -- she truly helps me live a healthy lifestyle, and has even taught me how to prepare healthy meals for myself. I also had Amanda cater a dinner with friends, and it was such a great experience. She interacted with everyone and explained what she was doing. It was like a cooking class for all of us. Her gluten-free baked goods are phenomenal, and you definitely have to try her Cashew "Sour Cream" Sauce and vegan enchiladas! Whether you're vegan, vegetarian, paleo, gluten free, raw, etc, Amanda knows her stuff and will work with you to create some of the most delicious (and nutritious) foods you will ever eat.
Helped us host a company holiday party. Food and service was excellent!
I am coaching people how to simply cook with three to five easy steps and very few ingredients. Healthy meals are important, but I can teach you also how utilize leftovers and what you already have in your refrigerator or pantry.
My work stands out for several reasons. First, I have professional training in both nutrition and chef areas. This allows me to not only teach how to cook healthy, but to explain why certain food choices are healthier for our bodies than other choices. Second, I meet my clients where they are in their journey. Changing one's lifestyle can be daunting, and it is my goal to help clients reach their goals based on their needs, capabilities, tolerances and other factors. Last, my approach is very personal. Based on my client's preferences, skills, and interactions, I adjust naturally to a style comfortable to them while still remaining true to who I am.
I think Its my personality and passion for food. I am a very cheerful person and it comes across in the food that I produce
I have 20 years' experience in food service backed by culinary arts training at Johnson and Wales. I provide instructions, lessons and in-home chef service focused on dietary needs
My goals is to reintroduce the idea of generational cooking. The idea of cooking with your loved ones and the recipes they passed down, creating memories by taste and transcending you to another time by smell. Teaching my students skills, techniques and recipes which will last a lifetime that they too can pass on to a loved one.
I provide catering and cooking classes. After being on Fox's Master Chef Season 2, I continued my career in food. I love to fill every moment with delicious food.
