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.
Thanks to Emme, we had a fabulous engagement party at Ward Johnson Winery in Seattle for 40 guests. The food was freshly prepared on location. Emme personally staged the hors d'oeuvres during the party. They looked perfect, tasted even better and the winery smelled wonderful from Emme's cooking. She even allowed me to add a dessert only 3 days prior to the party. All the guests loved the food! Chef Emme is a must have for any gathering!!!!! Thanks again Emme!
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 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!
Olive is amazing. She has such passion for the art of cuisine... She thoroughly researches and tests new recipes, and partners with some of the most thoughtful/excellent private chefs in the Seattle area. I would highly recommend her!
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.
Chef Anessa can put together a romantic evening for two, a group sit down dining experience and more. Her menu can range from extremely elegant, a culinary adventure, to an upscale yet casual fare. I highly recommend her chef services for anyone looking for a top quality chef with amazing skills, artistry and true culinary experience.
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!
I regularly employed Chef Ramo for many years during her time in California. She's an extremely talented, professional and accommodating chef. Her meals are delicious, healthy and approachable. Her food has a no-nonsense elegance to it. I've also used her catering services and guests have been wildly impressed with her level of service and the entertainment aspect she brings to events. She interacts well with guests, providing them with entertaining food tidbits and charming them with her wicked sense of humor. Regardless of what service you engage, I highly recommend Chef Ramo. She's a joy.
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!
