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!
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 wasnt 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 Bobbys 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!!
Michael was excellent. He not only catered the meal to our entire family's preferences, but also went out of his way to learn how to prepare specific Burmese dishes that we were craving (and nailed it!). We would highly recommend Michael as a personal chef and would definitely hire him again.
Brett was professional, timely and made delicious food that was tailored to by unique palate. It was a great introduction to thumbtack and having a professional chef, with how busy I am with work. Greatly appreciated, and looking forward to continuing to utilize this in the future.
I have hired Joy Max Catering for my wedding catering for 130 people. Our wedding was on budget and we had only 4 months to plan it. Joy Max Catering has worked with us based on our budget and we were able to pick a menu we wanted. We were able to add and subtract thins we wanted or didn't choose to have. When I first tried my herb roasted chicken, I was wondering how come I could never make a chicken like that. It was tender, juicy and lots of flavor. The food had flavor and it was very homemade & thats what we were looking for. Everyone who I asked about my food, they said it was excellent! I am glad I have met the owner Joy, she is a great person to work with and talk about food. She is very professional, sweet and very very hard working. I would recommend Joy Max for an outstanding ability to work with people, base their menu, arrange payments and also cook a deliciously tasty food. Thank you Joy Max for your services.
Working with chef Patty at Fresh Every Thyme Personal Cef Service was the BEST decision I made when planning my family reunion! Our family likes to have fun during the day with various activities and come together for dinner every night. Patty worked with me to choose the menus for each night, she did the grocery shopping, much of the food prep, and then stocked our refrigerator. All we had to do was warm and serve! Saved so much time, energy and excess food. Thank you Patty for helping our family have the best vacation!
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.
I love Urban Pantry's take-home meals! I am always on the go and do not have much time for cooking. Urban Pantry makes it so easy to just throw a healthy meal in the oven! We have been ordering paleo meals and they all taste AMAZING! We have also used their catering service twice now for two different events. They both turned out fantastic!
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!
Innovative events planned the most fabulous baby shower for me. From the decorations, the games and wonderful spread of food it was beyond what I ever could have imagined. Stephanie and Nikki were extremely personable and made every effort to work within my budget to throw the beautiful shower. They took care of all set-up/ clean up and made sure all the guests knew where to find parking, directions, etc. They are truly THE Dream Team. I will use them in the future for all of my special event planning needs.
My services include personal chef, private parties, and catering services! I'm a wonderful cook, entertainer, teacher, and chef waiting to make your occasion really special.
I have worked as a professional chef in 7 global cuisines over 25 years. I love food, people and experiences!
Food is my life. With 33 years in the food service, I have a vast knowledge of the many aspects of food service. I have experience in many ethnic styles.
Chef, To GO is exclusive to the client. Whether it’s a black tie dinner, a beach side cookout, or feeding the entire crew during a weekend getaway- we do it. Chef, To GO aims to take a different approach to the private chef service. Many concepts advertise the use of “fresh” and “local” ingredients throughout their services, for us that is simply a given. Chef, To GO is not a full-scale catering company, but instead a complete service that specializes in exclusive, in-home gatherings with the flexibility to take on any venture. Combine a degree from the Culinary Institute of Charleston, years of experience in large volume catering, and even more years of experience in premier fine dining restaurants; and the result is one well-rounded, chef of all trades. However, this chef aims to please without the pride, the intimidation, or the budget-breaking billing. At the end of the day, if the client is beyond satisfied, then so am I.
I am a personal chef who recently graduated from a culinary school. I would like to share my love of American, Mexican, Italian, and soul food cooking. Let's face it; the last thing you want to do when you get home is cook. I will take all the stress out of dinner and give you a healthy and tasty meal.
Thank you for your interest. Contact us now to know more about our services.

My passion lies in the creation and achievement of a great event, as a whole, rather then what happens in the kitchen alone. Classical training provided a base for my culinary knowledge thats spans borders, cultures and of course flavors. The satisfaction of the smiles from my clients and guests, by highlighting my passion for cooking, introducing something new, or sparking a forgotten memory.
