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.
Chef Ken led a small cooking class at my parents house for my Mom's birthday dinner. The food was outstanding, he was a great teacher, and very personable. We plan to work with him again in the future.
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.
Shauna was amazing to work with - she provided an incredible meal for our wedding and also took on the burden of supplying rentals. Everything went on without a hitch, and was a great experience! Late into our engagement, my wife was diagnosed with cancer. We saw the wedding as an opportunity to have a break from everything life has been throwing at us, and with Shauna's help it was an amazing experience. I would definitely recommend reaching out to Entropy Cooks if you are looking for a caterer for your event. The food was incredible, the service was great, the price was more than reasonable, and the experience was everything we had hoped and more.
Chef Bert responded to my Thumbtack request with a thorough presentation of what his company has to offer, assuring me that they have worked our venue many times. I am the Mother of the Bride and was confident that Chef Bert was a good candidate to cater my daughters wedding. My daughter and her fiance met with Chef Bert and were impressed with his experience and personality. As part of the decision process, Chef Bert offers an amazing, dinner for 6 in your own home, to try the food of your choice, prior to the wedding. Bert and his assistant Ron, arrived an hour and a half before dinner, dressed in tuxedos and ready to cook. The table was stunning. From the appetizers to the salad to the main course, the food was absolutely one of the most delicious meals I've ever eaten. Not only is he a talented Chef, Bert is a kind and funny man. We are all looking forward to working with him and his staff (not to mention, eating his food again!)at my daughter's wedding in July. I will write an update after the wedding and let you know how it went.
Anne-marie's food is dee-lish! I don't eat meat but she totally gets it and has no prob working with my prefs. She really knows her stuff in the kitchen and it shows in her cooking. She's always handles everything like a pro which is nice peace of mind as well.
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.
We absolutely adore her. I decided to hire a personal chef a few nights a week. Being a mother and having a career, my schedule is always full and implementing help with dinners has been a huge relief. My family and I are impressed and thrilled with her cooking and will continue to have her onboard. Highly recommend!
Erika is amazing! She helped us with an 11 year old birthday cooking party. The menu was Japanese and all vegetarian. She is meticulous detailed, thorough. Everything detail was planned from arrival time, waivers, menu preferences, kitchen setup, requirements and kids. She was so patient , sweet and helpful throughout the 2.5hrs with the girls! I would hire her again and highly recommend to anyone hostinf a kids cooking party!
I offer catering, cooking lessons, and a fine dining experience for all. The answer is yes, what is the question. We will make your event something to remember and be talked about for years to come.

All my dishes are gluten free and include Paleo, vegetarian and vegan. I don't cook using refined sugar, soy or sesame. I concentrate on whole, natural, local and fresh ingredients. I prefer cooking for families or small groups (up to 30). I'm a creative chef, which means that I'm always coming up with new recipes and investigating alternatives to the traditional; although, I'm quite happy with traditional fare. I don't use many high-carb ingredients either. I use a lot of quinoa, brown rice and whole, gluten-free grains and flours. I make my own flour blends, opting for less highly processed ingredients.
I have a great passion for cooking and baking. I love the creativity of cooking through the likes of clients' food preferences. I also have done private cooking in the past.
