Highly recommend. Of all the contractors hired to prep our home for sale, Corey was the first to send his proof of insurance. He was prompt, reliable, flexible, and did what he said he would do plus a little bit extra. He completed tasks requiring a wide range of skills and exhibited tenacity, flexibility and quality. If you’re not sure who to choose, you won’t be disappointed choosing Corey and his team. Thank you, Corey!
Paul and Stephanie catered our wedding this summer and we were very pleased with their professionalism, the taste, quality, and presentation of their food, and their dedication in helping us realize our wedding vision. I was first contacted by them on Thumbtack in response to our request for a wedding caterer. We had already exhausted options from The Knot Vendor List and had been both overwhelmed with prices and underwhelmed with food taste and quality. Paul and Stephanie reached out to us quoting a plated meal including beef and fish for the same price as the cheap chicken buffets we'd been experiencing. They were kind enough to visit us in our home where Chef prepared generous samples of all the dishes we were considering. While we were eating, Stephanie took down details on the wedding and presentation. The food was phenomenal and hands down better than any other samples we'd been given. Chef even bustled about in my kitchen and found my Tupperware so he could package up the leftovers and leave them in the fridge for us. We decided to also take advantage of their pastry side and get our cupcakes for our dessert table from them. Stephanie hand delivered them to my work so I could sample them with the Fiancé. Chef did a great job at making me feel comfortable with everything he was preparing with his knowledge of gluten free cooking and baking and comprehension of cooking safety for individuals with Celiac. Nearly all our item we ordered were gluten free, and the ones that weren't, were kept separate. The months leading up to the wedding was simple and easy communication, I wish I could have said this for all my vendors. Payments expectations were made clear and could be easily made by credit card. Stephanie made time to have two additional consultations to discuss food plating, food table decorations, and cupcake topping design. I supplied her with a binder and the weekend before the wedding she had a phone consultation with me to review the details and it was evident she had already looked at all the contents extensively. The day of the wedding the catering team was on point. They jumped in and took over many of the duties our wedding coordinator was not attending to including setting up our appetizer and dessert tables and guest tables to my design plan. The food was excellent and all of our guests have said they couldn't stop stuffing themselves with delicious noms. The plating was lovely, the cupcake toppings were just as I'd envisioned, and the waitstaff and bartender were very attentive. Stephanie was present at the wedding and Chef Paul had prepared most of the food but was catering another event. I was so pleased with her and her staff and her attention to detail and hard work helping us create our day. They packed up all the leftovers for us and we were told they were the last vendors there still working hard at helping everyone clean up. If you are looking at catering a large event do yourself a favor and check out Paul and Stephanie. They are not only a great chef and planner duo, they are also incredibly kind and compassionate individuals. One of my biggest regrets is that I didn't know Stephanie was also a wedding coordinator, I wish I would have hired her instead of the girl we did. Additionally, their prices are more than reasonable and worth every penny.
Jessica helped out at our holiday party and she was amazing. She was on top of greeting the guests and taking their coats, then would ask if they would like a beverage. She made it very easy for me to enjoy my guests and not worry about any kitchen duties. I will definitely be asking for her help again at our next party.
Did taste testing for wedding planning process Chantel is a rising star in the chef game..able to prepare any genre of food both domestic and international..immediate hire!!!
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.
I enthusiastically recommend Nola and her team. I hosted a unique event at my home and my main goal was to make the guests feel appreciated and special. Thanks to Nola, every guest loved the delicious food--young and old, and different cultural backgrounds. There was a theme to the menu and each had its unique flavor, texture and color; she even created a recipe for a new dish. Nola brought floral dÃ©cor to compliment mine. Nola consulted on layout and best flow to the event order. Nola was a gracious hostess and made everyone feel taken care of. They cleaned the kitchen, guests' service ware and put the leftovers on my own dishes so I had nothing left to do. I hope to have the opportunity to have them cater again soon.
We had a unique, rapid turn around request, and Chef Emme completely delivered for us! Our turkeys and ham were so delicious as the centerpieces of our office Thanksgiving, and were beautiful to boot. We'll definitely be coming back to Chef Emme for next year's Thanksgiving, and she is high on the list of consideration for the other catered event we do each year, too. Thanks, Chef Emme!
I recently had Bobby prepare a small dinner party for my husband's birthday. From the moment I contacted him, he was prompt with his replies and took the time to answer my questions. His ideas for the menu were great and he was receptive to any changes or additions that I requested. On the day of our meal, Bobby was awesome. He prepared a wonderful meal while carrying on an interesting conversation with all of us. We learned some useful tips from him. The food was expertly prepared, beautifully presented, and delicious. My husband highly recommends trying Bobby's bread pudding. The other part of Bobby's service is cleaning up the kitchen and doing all the dishes. It was really nice to not have to worry about any of that and he did a great job. I would highly recommend Bobby Greene to anyone thinking about using an in-home chef. He is the best!!
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!
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!!
Al Lago has catered many meetings and external conferences for WEA - from full breakfast to late dinner - an many times without notice. George Filiss has an amazing and competent staff who can find their way around any awkward and many times unaccommodating surroundings from kitchens, to lobbies, to school hallways, to cafeterias and outside venues. We have many people with specific allergies and Al Lago carefully and articulately prepares meals accordingly with healthy and delicious choices. Their set up is professional and classy for anything from an outdoor BBQ to a wedding. Highly recommended.
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.
Great company to work with - from the office staff who helped with the menu to the caterers who handled the dinner and bar. Thanks so much!
Stephanie’s food is both healthy and delicious! I’d highly recommend her personal chef services.
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've hired Edible Hue for several events, and have enjoyed each of them immensely. Chef Andy, Myrissa, and Amara provide an experience that has had my guests raving for months. They're a joy to collaborate with, and they accommodate my typical Seattle crowd (a mix of vegetarian, pescatarian, gluten-sensitive, lactose intolerant) with patience and grace. I am always at ease knowing they're at the helm. At the last event, several people expressed that they were "blown away" by the food. I can't wait to have an excuse to hire them again!

My company specializes in Gluten free and Mediterranean cuisine! I have been serving the public since 1998 and been formally educated in the culinary arts. I know that the customers when they need a food caterer they need more than just cooking the food they need someone who knows nutrition who can make the food taste great it doesn't matter what the customers limitations are. I know if I except the job I have to agree to all the above and will be my privilege to work with a customer who has the above wishes. I have had 2 successful restaurants and now we do full time Catering. This is a full service with a photographer and a flower artist.
