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.

Chef Paul and Stephanie recently catered my wedding. They were prompt, professional, and worked with us to design the custom menu of our dreams for an affordable price! My husband and I shopped around before selecting them, and you will not be able to find a better value in the Puget Sound region. Importantly, Chef Paul has a diverse repertoire and the taste and presentation of their food are top-notch. Our guests were blown away by the food and we got so many compliments on many different dishes that were served. Favorites from our wedding were the poke, salmon, kalua pork, grilled Mexican street corn, lemon and carrot mini cupcakes, mushroom crostini appetizers, habanero salsa and authentic dairy-free horchata. They also prepared many fresh toppings for the taco bar and brought all the condiments we wanted. If you are looking for a delicious, custom menu at an affordable price, you can depend on Chef Paul and Stephanie to deliver!

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.

During the week of September 8-12, 2014, Chef Everett Wells provided catered morning break and lunch services for our dealer training event in Kent, WA. Everett was with us every step of the way, arrived early each morning and provided a delicious and varied menu every day. The food was great and it is obvious that Everett loves to cook. He took care of every detail and I didn't have to worry about a thing! My only personal issue was no real cream for the coffee service and I know that's only because I didn't ask him to bring some in! I would highly recommend Destiny Catering & Sauce Development and look forward to working with them again when we find ourselves back in Seattle next year.

From the first contact through the end of the party, Executive Chef Everett showed me such professionalism and courtesy to my business holiday party catering needs. The food was outstanding!!! All 120 guests commented on the outstanding "spread" and that they were so impressed with both chefs working for this catering company. I have and will continue to sing Executive chef Everett's praises and I will have a caterer for all my events from this year forward!!

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!

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 décor 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 hosted a dinner party for 10 at our home. Nola and her assistant Flo prepared an amazing meal, from appetizers through dessert. Nola was so easy to work with through the planning stages and had great ideas for how to optimize our home and time with our guests. As if the delicious food weren't enough, she also made sure the kitchen and dining room were clean before she left, which was an added bonus to an otherwise exquisite evening. I would highly recommend her and will not hesitate to call her again when we entertain.

Thanks to Emme, we had a fabulous engagement party at Ward Johnson Winery in Seattle for 40 guests. The food was freshly prepared on location. Emme personally staged the hors d'oeuvres during the party. They looked perfect, tasted even better and the winery smelled wonderful from Emme's cooking. She even allowed me to add a dessert only 3 days prior to the party. All the guests loved the food! Chef Emme is a must have for any gathering!!!!! Thanks again Emme!

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!!

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.

As a coach myself, I know the value of coaching and the impact it can have on your success. So when I decided to train for a ½ marathon the choice to get a coach was clear. I worked with Angela because she combines her coaching with a background as a personal trainer. This was a great choice. Angela helped me stay on track with my exercise and even got me focused on doing core work. We Skyped and she demonstrated specific exercises I could do to work my core, then observed me and gave me feedback. She even texted me throughout the week to remind me to stay focused on core work as it was a new area for me.

Originally, I began working with Angela as my Personal Trainer. She encouraged me to stay focused on my goals and kept me interested in the workouts, but mostly she made me feel supported. And we had WAY to much fun together, which always made the sessions go by quickly. Eventually we began incorporating in Life Coaching. I felt so comfortable discussing my life with her. She pushed me to discover more about what I wanted in life while also being patient, giving me the time and space when I needed it. She is truly amazing!!

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.

Chef Bobby was the best. He and his assistant were nothing but professional and were exactly what we were looking for. We had them come to a house we rented while a group of girls and I were in town for a bachelorette party. He planned the perfect menu for a group of girls that had spent all day in wine country. We had so much fun and the bride said having a private chef was the highlight of her trip. Thanks for everything!!

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.

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.

She came to our house to do the private tasting bringing all of the dishes with her and left us with the leftovers! Everyone at the wedding loved the food.

I hired Navi almost a month ago to cater a birthday party. I typically don't write reviews since this much time has passed but his service was so wonderful that I would be remiss if I did not let people know. As mentioned, I used Navi to cater a birthday party for about 35 guests in August. I did this after the chef I usually use canceled 3 days prior to the party due to a family emergency. Needless to say, I was incredibly stressed and did not know what I was going to do. That's when I started googling and decided to put in a last-ditch request on this website. I am SO, SO thankful I did! Finding Navi was a blessing and here is why: **Super Competitive Bid: He was willing to come to a price that mutually agreeable to get the job done right. **Quick Turnaround: Within hours of accepting his bid, we had a full menu set and event plans determined. **Dedicated and Professional: Navi went above and beyond to make sure things were in perfect order the day of the party. I was highly impressed especially given that he was hired on such short notice. **Quality of Service: The food was absolutely wonderful! I received several compliments and inquiries as to what caterer I used. This was extremely flattering given that we had a few VIP guests from the Seahawks celebrating with us. **Friendly and Warm: He was incredibly personable, polite and a pleasure to work with. I will definitely be using him again and cannot recommend him enough! Brittni E.

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.

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.

My mother is Japanese and we moved from Japan to the US when I was a child. I grew up eating all kinds of Japanese foods. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the interest in cooking until later in life and never learned my mother’s culinary secrets until I found Chef Kanako Koizumi at PCC Cooks. Chef Kanako takes the time to provide lots of interesting information about Japanese cuisine, explains each of the steps, and simplifies the mysteries of Japanese cuisine. My friends and I have taken many of Chef Kanako's classes. We once drove 45 minutes to take her Tofu class and it was well worth the drive. Other classes were Japanese Breakfast, Sushi making and Shojin Japanese Cuisine class. Four years ago, we took her “Japanese Nabe: One pot dish” class. Totally Awesome Class! Chef Kanako borrowed extra large Japanese Nabe pots from her friends for this hands-on-class. Each table of 4 students had their own hot pot in which to prepare their Japanese Nabes. Chef Kanako walked us through each step and came around to each team to give us individual coaching. The meal was so delicious that I actually made all of the Nabe recipes from the class that same evening for my family. Since taking this Japanese Nabe class, I now make Japanese Nabe 3 or 4 times every winter. It's a great dish to make for large groups. I am not sure that I would have had the confidence to tackle this dish had I not taken Chef Kanako’s hands-on-class. I commend Chef Kanako for being so thorough and so very motivating. She should be on Food Network and have her own show! My friends and I will absolutely take future classes taught by Chef Kanako because of her passion and interest in teaching, her sharing of recipes, and her stories from Japan.
