Although we didn't end up hiring Stephanie and Paul for our event, I was impressed and very appreciative by how professional and flexible Stephanie was with me during our communications. I had a very limited budget for a school event and she was willing to work with me every step of the way to create a menu and service plan that fits. Furthermore, the menu she and Chef Paul came up sounded amazing! Because I had to meet with other committee and board members during this process to make any decisions, there was a lot of back and forth communication and Stephanie was patient and always prompt and thorough with her responses. Although I am sorry I didn't get to experience chef's food, I would definitely work with Emerald City Cakes and Chocolates again if I had another event that requires catering.
I had never met Chantel in person until the day of my husband's party. She is so professional and went to work so quickly. We chose her italian menu and it was absolutely delicious. I especially liked the stuffed pork tenderloin. It was incredibly moist with a cream sauce full of flavorful seasonings. I loved the green salad we chose with all of the fresh herbs and to die for salad dressing. Chantel was so kind and made me feel so relaxed. I would recommend her for any type of event. She is a talented Chef and a very kind and genuine woman. Aleta Rogerson, Party for my husband's 60th Birthday,held at the Everett Yacht Club
Bobby is AWESOME! I seriously can’t stress that enough. I would highly highly recommend him - I have a lot of strict requirements around my diet and he somehow manages to make my food taste amazing :)
Michael was excellent. He not only catered the meal to our entire family's preferences, but also went out of his way to learn how to prepare specific Burmese dishes that we were craving (and nailed it!). We would highly recommend Michael as a personal chef and would definitely hire him again.
Brett was professional, timely and made delicious food that was tailored to by unique palate. It was a great introduction to thumbtack and having a professional chef, with how busy I am with work. Greatly appreciated, and looking forward to continuing to utilize this in the future.
Sami is one of the greatest chefs I could say I've ever had the pleasures of helping her actually(watching) her cook and serve others with great passion in her dishes as well serving her customers I've also had the pleasure of trying pretty much all her dishes so I can't really tell witch was the best because they were to good to judge you would have to try it for your self but I can say they were the best dishes I've ever tasted and she had a restaurant I would be a regular she great just know will not be disappointed thank and god bless.
Chef David Boyd- Private Chef-Down to Earth Cuisine "Delicious, organic, thoughtfully prepared and beautifully plated dishes"- On August 7th I hired Private Chef David Boyd to prepare an Italian Dinner for 10 in my home. (I had offered the "Italian Dinner for 8" as an auction item not knowing at the time who I would hire) He (and his lovely wife, also hired to assist him) arrived at 1pm to begin cooking for the 5:30pm event. Earlier in the week, we met to decide on the menu, appropriate tableware and wine/beverage pairings for the 5 course menu. We went with a Northern Italian theme featuring peaches because they were in season and seafood. I handled the purchase of the wine and cocktail ingredients but paid half of the per person food cost up front so that he could do all the grocery shopping which he did using local fish/meat stores and organically grown fruit and veggies from our area farmers market. He also arrived with all of his own knives and most utensils needed though he did use my mixing bowls and cookware. The entire meal was then prepared in our kitchen. Because he makes everything from scratch like croutons, mayonnaise, sugared garnish for the dessert etc. it is very time consuming, labor intensive and requires full use of your kitchen. He and his wife worked hard and fast for the 4.5 hours before guests arrived. They were conscientious and they cleaned and emptied the garbage etc. as they went. The result was delicious, organic, thoughtfully prepared and beautifully plated dishes that my husband and I were proud to serve to our guests. I would suggest discussing the estimated prep time for individual menu items as well as the per person cost ahead of time. Chef David seems capable of working within any reasonable budget, but he does require a lot of prep time if you choose complex menu items so that factors into his hourly rate. I think the dinner cost me more than what guests paid at the auction but that's totally my fault for not being more clear about my budget and for suggesting such complex ideas like an appetizer of scallops served in some sea shells I had. All in all, it was a very impressive, well paced, 5 course meal, and my guests enjoyed hearing Chef David explain the details of each delicious course as it was served. It was so nice to be able to just relax and enjoy my guests rather than stress about the food and clean-up. A really fun experience! I recommend hiring Chef David Boyd of Down to Earth Cuisine for your next dinner party. - Suzy H.
I went to a small dinner party catered by chef Patty of Fresh Every Thyme. It was wonderful - delicious and innovative dishes - nicely presented. Terrific evening!
I LOVE Cashew Blanca--it's my go to for delicious, guilt-free, made-with-love-and-consciousness treats. I've made purchases for a wide range of circumstances, from personal enjoyment (love the single-slice available at the Tacoma Food Co-Op and Ice-Cream Social), parties (this was the hit dessert at my last Thanksgiving), and business events (Cashew Blanca catered the dessert for Samdhana-Karana Yoga's Silent Auction last year)! I buy Melody's single-slice vegan cheesecake when I want a luxurious treat that doesn't make me feel puffy (from dairy) or erratic (from cane sugar) or just frightened (from the list of ingredients). Plus I love that it's made locally--yum all around! Thank you, Melody!
We are loving our chef services! Fresh homemade meals instead of going out is so much nicer. My kids are getting exposed to some new flavors as well! Thank you Cris
I work at a non profit that provides a Thanksgiving Dinner for the homeless ever year. Chef Charlie has been amazing in volunteering his time and skills to cook our Thanksgiving dinner for 200 plus marginalized people. Not only is his food delicious, but he brings such a joy to the kitchen. He is professional and able to direct all of the kitchen volunteers (some of which have never cooked before). Most importantly, during Thanksgiving he makes sure that everyone (no matter their life status) has the opportunity to have a 'fine dining' experience for Thanksgiving. Thank you Chef Charlie for serving our community!
Eva Is very professional and on top of everything. My guest and I were able to enjoy our evening worry free. I highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking good quality food and service.
I bring that little something that's missing. Flavors through every bite till the end of your dish.
I work closely with my customer to best serve them according to their needs
