Chef Paul and Stephanie were the perfect catering partners at my wedding. From the first call they were committed to deliver the Middle Eastern inspired menu I was looking for and came through beautifully, from the dinner, to the cake and deserts to the service. The food was so delicious! We received many compliments from our guests and would hire them again. The menu Chef Paul designed reflected my vision of a unique meal inspired by Moroccan and Lebanese cuisine. Chef Paul and Stephanie were so easy to work with and flexible. Stephanie was an absolute joy to work with. Her professionalism and responsiveness put me at ease. I was able to trust her with every aspect of the catering. She listened to what I wanted and consistently followed up in a professional and timely manner. Wishing you both a lot of success. Thank you for sharing your passion for great, flavorful food!

Haven't caterered yet but Chantel was responsive and flexible for our needs. She provided a menu and allowed for my notes. I'm looking forward to having her feed over 300 students this summer!

I used Francisco as a personal chef for my husbands birthday party and did a good job. A few friends liked his food so much they asked me for his contact information.

We were planing a graduation dinner event last minute. When I posted to hire a private chef through Thumbtack, a few chefs approached me. After talking with each chef, I finally chose BG private chef. He is easy to communicate with and met our requests. During the dinner, he was very approachable but still professional. The price was reasonable too. We enjoyed his cooking and service.

We had a fabulous wedding and Tara was a large part of making that a reality. Tara is detail oriented, flexible, and most of all, an amazing chef! I enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to anyone looking for great food at a reasonable price for their event. While looking for a caterer, I found many quotes excluded significant costs such as Chef time, server time, etc. One quote doubled once these were added to the estimate. Not so with Tara. Her quote was accurate. She was upfront about the total price per plate and there were no surprise costs. Tara provided a tasting that was VERY reasonably priced. We brought along a couple friends for opinions and were blown away by the feast before us. There were appetizers, a salad, at least three main courses, and four or five sides. The tasting really showcased Tara’s talents and made it easy to choose her as our caterer. Once we had booked with Tara, she was available to discuss our menu as our needs evolved. When we added extra rentals and food to our contract, Tara took everything in stride and made it work. On the day of our wedding, everything went smoothly. We have received praise from multiple friends and family one of whom described her food as “Top notch”. Our day of coordinator told me she enjoyed working with Tara and would recommend her to future clients. Thank you Tara for being so wonderful to work with and making our day one to remember!

David prepared a weeks worth of premade meals for my family that I can remove from my freezer and reheat. He made everything in my kitchen, purchased all of the ingrediants and left the kitchen spotless. My 15 year old son is interested in becoming a chef and David answered all of his questions as they worked together in the kitchen. I would highly recommend his services to anyone that enjoys eating!!

Nichole is an intuitive cook, who loves food and cultivates a sensual experience celebrating flavors. She's wonderful at locally sourcing and prioritizes health and ethics almost as highly as making delicious food. I've tried Nichole's cooking for a variety of diet restrictions and she can do it all. Good food!

We hired Sue for a private party for a small group. She was collaborative on the menu and helped us with all the prep for the evening. She was on time. Very professional and pleasant. The food was delicious. Would definitely recommend her to others.

We had a great experience with Weddings and Events by Chef Berttron. Chef and his crew came to my house to cater our company Christmas Party. They whipped out a full dinner for 27 people, set-up everything, helped me with my final cleaning and decorating and were on top of it all throughout the night. We were all impressed!

    Two of the top chefs in King county. I highly recommend this catering. Lawrence is a well known chef here in King county. I would love to have him cook for me anytime. You must try the smoked meats they are to die for.

    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!

    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!

    I will come to your house and prepare simple, elegant meals for up to 10 people. You must have working equipment and proper ventilation. I prefer private dinners, anniversaries, etc. for two to six people. I will provide the ambiance, shop for the food, prepare and clean up. I won't deliver food as it requires other health permits. I will also cater to specific food allergies and preferences like diabetic and gluten free.

    About

    My company specializes in Gluten free and Mediterranean cuisine! I have been serving the public since 1998 and been formally educated in the culinary arts. I know that the customers when they need a food caterer they need more than just cooking the food they need someone who knows nutrition who can make the food taste great it doesn't matter what the customers limitations are. I know if I except the job I have to agree to all the above and will be my privilege to work with a customer who has the above wishes. I have had 2 successful restaurants and now we do full time Catering. This is a full service with a photographer and a flower artist.
