Lynn did an amazing job on my wedding cake. From initial contact, to the tasting, to setup and everything--it was beautiful and absolutely delicious. I know where I am returning if I have custom cake needs in the future. I cannot recommend her enough!

We ordered two cakes and multiple mini desserts for our wedding. To put it short all the desserts are gone. Everyone loved them they were delicious and beautifully done. The grooms cake was a brooks brothers logo and most bakers said they couldn't do it but Jessica did a fantastic job on it. Everything was perfect

We have had the best experience with Bryan and BigFish BBQ. For the last two years Bryan and his team represented us in an industry event, "The Great Steak Cook-off". Not only did we get the presentation of his huge custom pits but also Bryan made some fantastic appetizers that brought far more people to our spot than any other participant. As we found out, bacon wrapped meatballs are great to eat, but also get people talking!! A BIG THANK YOU from Vetoquinol, we'll see you next year!!

Chef Clarence did the food for my birthday party. He helped me with choosing the menu and I am extremely pleased with everything he provided. The food was fresh, tasty and hot! My guest raved about the food and the presentation. I rate Chef Buckner 5+ stars with confidence.

About

I found Chef Gary here on Thumbtack. We were looking to host a small dinner party - 12 people total - for my Wife's birthday and our anniversary. Chef Gary was very professional. I met him for coffee to discuss the menu and finalize the price. He then took time to come to our house a couple weeks in advance to look at the Kitchen and determine what we had and what he needed. On the day of the event he and his assistant arrived on time and were very professional. Now for the best part - the food was FANTASTIC. Our guests LOVED all three courses. We had a salad which was very tasty. The main course was surf and turf with a crab cake and beef tenderloin along with sweet potatoes and sautéed spinach. The desert is not something I would normally order but it was EXCELLENT. A poached Pear with whipped cream. SUPER SWEET AND DELICIOUS. The presentation was impeccable and every one of our guests either asked for information on Chef Gary or told us to make sure to keep his card available in the event they need a personal Chef. The kitchen was left in the same condition as Chef Gary found it, neat and clean. I WILL be hiring Chef Gary again, hopefully sooner rather than later. Michael W. Zientz

Nimisha is wonderful to work with, the cakes were beautifully decorated, delicious and priced very fairly. As a parent of a child with allergies, her unique offering of eggless/allergy friendly cakes is such a value to me.

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.

Chef Becka did a remarkable job. She braved the ice storm and made the evening with such a wonderful dinner. She made a 100% gluten free 3 course meal and was so delightful to work with every step of the way. I have already booked her again for an upcoming brunch!!

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.

Chef Antonio did a fantastic job in introducing delicious, healthy vegan dishes to my husband and I to enjoy while on the Daniel Fast. His services included meeting me at Sprouts where we picked out fresh vegetables and spices for the dishes that would be prepared in my kitchen. He provided one-on-one instructions in preparing dishes which included salsa, guacamole, salad, soup and an authentic Latin cuisine. He gave great advice on the best ways in using cooking utensils and cutting techniques. It was a wonderful experience, and for all of his services, his pricing was very affordable. I look forward to using Antonio in the near future in teaching me how to prepare various delicious, healthy dishes.
