Chef Paul, Stephanie and their team were exceptional!! Every detail was perfect and they were a true joy to work with from beginning to end. My party was a complete success thanks to them...the food, presentation and attention to detail was exquisite! They exceeded my expectations in every way and will be the first catering company I call for all my future events. Thank you Chef Paul and Stephanie, I can't wait to work with you in the future!

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 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!

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.

Tabi was amazing! She did a cake tasting at last minute for us as well as made our cake exactly like the picture. She was able to do 3 different flavors for us and the quality of the cake was impeccable. Almost our entire 2 larger tiers of our cake were eaten by the guests. That says enough in itself! Thank you Tabi your cake was beautiful. Ps I was unable to get a picture of the cake since I didn’t have my phone but our photographer got some pics so will try to share them later.

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 hired David Boyd to create an anniversary dinner for 2 at our house. David was the most responsive and communicative and so won the job. From there our expectations were exceeded. The price was a great value. The effort he put in from taking the time to come to the house and pre-viewing the kitchen, and asking about the local food markets and pre-viewing them several days ahead of time. Then the day of the job he asked to begin at 2PM for a 7:30 dinner, and he had printed up a special menu on nice paper that was a great unanticipated touch. While in the kitchen he welcomed any questions and was happy to share his knowledge. He made a complimentary and fantastic amuse bouche avocado soup, Farmer's cheese from scratch to go with the roasted carrots glazed in peppered honey; a phenomenal dish. The halibut was artfully prepared and presented with a peach serrano chutney and creamy pan sauce that was over the top, and an amazing dessert of chocolate mousse with macerated berries and almond crumble. From start to finish it was a lot of fun to have David in our home and a part of our special occasion. On top of being a great passionate chef he is a charismatic , articulate, interesting ,and intelligent new friend of ours. We highly recommend that you strongly consider him with confidence for any professionally prepared meal you need.

Right food itself can make a huge difference in everyday life experience and overall health and energy level. Right food made with love is transforming. I’ve learned principles on nutrition suitable for my body and lifestyle and Prana Wellness Chef helped me to integrate them. It was a life changing experience. Highly recommend to anyone willing to improve their day to day experience.

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!

We had an evening that far exceeded our expectations of fantastic food and friends in our own home thanks to Rose. From the meeting where she asked all the right questions about our guests ( dietary needs, menu choices, etc.) the level of participation we would like in the preparation of the meal, and other pertinent details that were sure to guarantee a memorable party for 13 of our friends and neighbors. We had a blast following her instructions as we helped prepare a meal that we enjoyed thoroughly and sat down as a group to enjoy. We would highly recommend this company to anybody who loves great food, learning a from a fun and fabulous chef, and an evening with a group of friends and/or family that will be a memory to savor.

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!

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!
