Chef Antinio was amazing, the food was exemplary. Our friends were very impressed and want to hire Chef Antinio for a Christmas event for a church group. He made our simple luncheon memorable. I am very happy that we hired him.

About

I believe that baking shouldn't only be focused on the visual, like so many other bakeries focus on. It needs to look good, but it also needs to taste equally as good! Your experience should be full of flavor. I also make each individual order custom to your needs; no assembly line/factory here! Also, I have won Best of Thumbtack in 2015 and 2016! The part I like the most is when people come to pick up their orders or I drop them off, and they see their order for the first time and are so excited about it. I love seeing the smiles on their faces and the joy in their eyes.

About

I believe my work stands out from others because of the amount of care and attention to detail I have. I want my customers to have not only the best looking cake for their special event but one of the best tasting cakes they have ever had! I am constantly trying new recipes and fine tuning recipes to make them better than they were! I love everything about my job. From the clients I work with to the baking to the decorating. While many find the job stressful I am quite the opposite. I am very relaxed when I bake and decorate - it's my stress reliever for me. Many times I get in the "zone" and don't realize just how long I have been working on a cake.

About

I attended two small dinner parties prepared by Anne. Both were excellent - both the food and the presentation. One had roast pork with a Merlot Shallot Sauce, Greyere Scalloped Potatoes and the best Italian Cream Cake I've had. Another had Sauteed Chicken in White Wine Sauce, spinach with delicate baby carrots and a decadent Pot de Creme Chocolate with Chantilly Cream. I highly recommend all of those, and her services as chef!

About

Hector was very personable chef with great skills and knows how to instruct which is really the key to learning and retaining knowledge. We cut carrots, onions, fresh herbs, tomatoes and more. Ensuring that you hold the knife properly is an important foundation to start cutting properly. My cutting, chopping, dicing, and slicing is much faster and efficient now. One of the best take aways from this class is to cut your vegetables in a square to ensure you have uniform shape and so it makes it easier to cut. The best part of this class was getting to try the different style knives. If you want to try a new knife, a quality kitchen store will let you hold and maybe even slice something, but it’s hard to know if you’re going to like it. Spending a lot on a real chefs knife is worth the investment if you like to cook. One good tip is that we set up a waste bowl for all of the parts we wouldn’t be using, like stems, roots, peelings, etc. You can fill the bowl and only make one trip to the garbage when you are done instead of running back and forth from the garbage, which slows your process. A well organized class, with lots of tips and instruction, that will almost certainly make you much more efficient in the kitchen.

Aundrea was the best!!! I was nervous and stressed about planning my dinner party for 14. She assured me she would handle everything and she did. After we planned the menu - she did all the shopping, prepared a wonderful meal, provided the servers and they cleaned up. I will definitely use her again. She is a great chef and my guests enjoyed her and her food.

Best brisket I've ever had. Best pulled pork I've ever had. Best mac n cheese I've ever had. Best green beans I've ever had. BigFish was a great guy, dropped off food for our fantasy football draft and was a pleasure to work with.
