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.
Chef Ken is the best! Incredibly skilled and knowledgeable yet completely humble and polite. We were thrilled with our experience and will absolutely look to work with Chef Ken again many times in the future!
Angela is a wonderful coach. She listened first and developed a program to achieve my stated goals. She has an excellent balance of diet and exercise knowledge, programs and tips. I would recommend anyone consider Angela for their personal coach.
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 :)
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'm a whole food nutritionist and have many clients with health issues. I have been referring my clients to work with chef Cyndie and been very pleased with her level knowledge and ability to work with my divrse clientele. My patients are thrilled to work with her and I know they are at home with Chef Cyndie. I highly recommend her skills and services to everyone who wants to enjoy real nutritious and tasty food.
Chef Anessa has been wonderful for our family! We both work full time, so having fresh, home cooked meals ready for us when we get home has been amazing. She comes once a week and always prepares a nice selection of entrees that are perfect for dinner and then I use any leftovers for lunches during the week, too. She partners with us to figure out the menu each week. I love that she brings us recommendations but also is willing to try some recipe suggestions I have. She asks for feedback and is very responsive to adjusting to your preferences. Our three kids have loved trying her dishes and we love that it's getting them to be more adventurous eaters. Thanks, Chef Anessa!
Sue helped set up and prepare a luncheon for my son's bar mitzvah. She was professional and on time. She did a great job and I would hire her again.
We had an evening that far exceeded our expectations of fantastic food and friends in our own home thanks to Rose. From the meeting where she asked all the right questions about our guests ( dietary needs, menu choices, etc.) the level of participation we would like in the preparation of the meal, and other pertinent details that were sure to guarantee a memorable party for 13 of our friends and neighbors. We had a blast following her instructions as we helped prepare a meal that we enjoyed thoroughly and sat down as a group to enjoy. We would highly recommend this company to anybody who loves great food, learning a from a fun and fabulous chef, and an evening with a group of friends and/or family that will be a memory to savor.
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!
Valerie is just who I needed in my life! I have been looking for a personal chef for some time now, but was never able to find anyone who met my needs...then along came Valerie. I'm a working professional who doesn't always have time to cook, and to be honest, I'm not the greatest cook either. Additionally, I'm on a strict diet plan following keto and cannot have dairy or gluten. Valerie knew what I was looking for off the bat and was so wonderful to work with - her professionalism, quick response time, candor and passion was beyond refreshing! She is a fantastic cook and I plan on using her services on a regular basis. I can't wait to see what else Valerie cooks up (pun intended) and so excited to taste more fantastic dishes!
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
Hi, I'm Kristzan. I love to cook gourmet food. I have my degree in culinary arts. I've been working in restaurants in Seattle for almost 3 years and currently a sous chef in a catering company; that's why I can assure you that the quality I can give you is fine cuisine. I specialize in Asian cuisine with a Pacific Northwest flare, but I can still cook whichever cuisine that meets of the needs of your palate. Be it appetizers, entrees, desserts, hors d'oeuvres, or comfort food, tell me what you want on your special day, and we'll negotiate. I only do home service, which means I will cook in your place; however, if you need a bigger service, I can connect you to the catering company I'm in. Email me.
I will personally train you to get a jump-start for faster career advancement. I will teach you hands-on cooking for you personally or for a planned gathering you are hosting. I will tailor your lessons for you personally. Whether you are looking to advance at a job, begin a better job, just looking to cook for your family, friends, small events or gatherings or just about any situation where you would like to enhance your kitchen skills, I can help plan menus and show you how to make an expensive-looking-and-tasting gourmet meal for an inexpensive cost. I will show you how easy it is to cook great food with just about anything in your kitchen cabinets. Let's talk, and I will help you look like a professional in less time than you could imagine. This can be a private lesson, or you can gather your family and friends for a group lesson. The more students per class, the lower the cost is per person.
