Food was delicious, presentation was terrific for what could have appeared as a simple box lunch with nice packaging and a wide assortment of sides, salads, chips and desserts. Delivery was prompt and handled effortlessly by Emerald City staff. The chef made a nice and popular selection of sandwich and wrap assortment meats and vegetable. We were very pleased and hope to use their company May of 2017 for our annual spring event.

Chantel was delightful to work with. I needed a personal chef on very short notice and she was very responsive and professional. She offered many options before we decided on the perfect meal. She delivered on time and as promised. The food was delicious, healthy and made with the freshest ingredients. Thank you for outstanding results!

Nola catered our family-style wedding banquet with such flare and grace, we and our guests were in complete awe all through the meal. The food itself was phenomenally delicious; every bite was worth savoring. From her friendly, direct demeanor, to the cheerful staff, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. She pulled off the event with a comfortable elegance and practiced hand that fit our personal style just perfectly. Among many other notably considerate things, she even worked around the summer heat, keeping our individually-sized cakes out of the sun, and made sure iced beverages were available in ample quantities. Our guests still rave about her, and we can't help but agree. Even "behind the scenes," her prices were reasonable, and her estimates thorough. She was also very accommodating of our guests' serious food allergies when creating the menu. We are so appreciative of everything she did for us both before and after the event, and we look very much forward to having her at our next soiree!

Working with Angela has been an enlightening experience, one that has allowed me to clarify my goals and learn how to work effectively toward them. When I started working with Angela in January 2015, I felt scattered. I was allowing others to dictate how my time was spent. I wanted to find time to lead a healthier life, and yet I felt that the mundane tasks associated with my job as a professor--committee meetings or grading--generated too many obligations. Five months later, my conversations with Angela have helped me to understand the importance of scheduling time for everyday activities that bring me joy. Angela has greatly contributed to a new balance between my personal and professional life. I have found Angela to be a caring professional who seeks solutions tailored to your lifestyle. I am learning to prioritize exercise, healthy food--and writing, the professional task that I most enjoy.

The experience we all had with Bobby Greene was amazing from beginning to end. Throughout the entire process, he was very kind, accommodating, and, from what I hear, his food was divine. I would highly recommend him for any event. Frankly, if there were more stars, I would add them. But five will have to do. For my parents’ anniversary, I wanted to do something special. I ended up looking into private chefs and decided to put in a request to see what it would take to get this done. This option appealed to me as there is only one nice restaurant where my parents live and they go there every event. I wanted this to be something special for their 30th. Bobby Greene responded to my event request within hours with a bid and a very nice response on how he wanted to be a part of making their anniversary special. From that point forward, he personally helped me along the process and accommodated anything and everything I requested. I had never done anything like this before and had a lot of questions, all of which he answered readily. My mother was a bit picky when it came to the food, but he accommodated every request I had when putting the menu together. He was always very gracious and kind throughout the entire thing – even when I thought I was being too pushy. He always made me feel welcome to ask questions and to make requests. I wasn’t actually there for the experience, but I requested that my mother write a little excerpt about it so I could include in this review: Our youngest daughter surprised us with Bobby – a private chef – for our 30th anniversary. We found out when he showed up (we had the pre-warning of cleaning the house and wearing something nice). I felt very uncomfortable with the idea as we have an older home – small kitchen and no dishwasher. But what was at first self-consciousness quickly gave way to Bobby’s easygoing attitude. He made us feel at ease immediately with his warm, inviting personality. He let us set the ambiance. He could have stayed in the background for the romantic evening or be a part of it. He was so engaging though that we invited him into our evening. As he served each course, he explained what we were eating and how it was prepared. My husband and I met working in a restaurant 31 years prior so we were fascinated by the process. The food was delicious and I have to admit – there were no leftovers! Though he is not a baker, he even made my favorite dessert – a pineapple upside down cake and it was superb. My husband and I highlight recommend Bobby for any special occasion. He is truly talented; the food is prepared to perfection; and, he is very personable and engaging. We will always remember our 30th with great affection.

I am from Montreal visiting some friends in Seattle who had a baby a few weeks ago. As a gift to them we decided to hire a private chef to come in and cook a meal for us in their home so that we wouldn't have to worry about going out with a new born baby to a nice dinner. That is how I stumbled upon Thumbtack and Ken. Dinner was absolutely delicious and Ken is fantastic and very personable! Everything was such a breeze. He came up with a perfect menu and executed beautifully. If I could have him cook for me back home on a weekly basis I would! Thank you so much Ken you made the night a perfect one! What Ana amazing experience!!

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 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!

Above and beyond. Spectacular! The quality of the food and creativity in design were both exceptional. Our group is notoriously finicky and hard on caterers as we have worked with many over the years. Plantiful Delights met our standards and more. Pressed for time to manage, I gave Crystal a lot of leeway in her selections for the appetizer vignettes that I cannot refer to as trays because they were so much more! She prepared off site, delivered to set up fresh just before guest arrived, and picked-up after the party for my husband's 50th birthday celebration at our home. I did not lift a finger except to pass out her business cards to so many of our raving attendees! And, of course, to sample most of the delectable foods she brought for us. Kudos Crystal. Well done.

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.

Jim is very professional. He ALWAYS listens, and meets the needs of his clients. His food is fresh, tastes amazing, is always prepared safely, and is displayed so beautifully before serving. Even this platter turned out amazing (see attached photo). It was almost hard to consume the vegetables that occupied this tray, because it was so beautiful!!! Jim TRULY enjoys what he does. He has turned all of what he does in to works of art. I will ALWAYS reccomend that potential clients ask for Jim, and his services. You will never be disappointed!
