Chef John was amazing! From start to finish he came in and made the night. The dishes were incredible and we couldn’t stop trying a bit of everything before pushing on to our next dish. Chef John will forever be our Chef for every occasion!

Chef Tim was absolutely incredible. We have done several private chef events and he is in another level. All the food he made from the appetizers to the main courses to the dessert were incredible. In addition to the cooking, he is just an all around pleasant person to be around. He was a fun person to enjoy NYE with.He took care of our kitchen and left it spotless. Highly recommend for any occasion!

Chef Dave was great! He did an excellent job. Even our picky eaters (young children) loved the meatballs he did. Great food, great service, great chef!

I have been a restaurateur for 25+ years but did not want to use one of my chefs. It was a risk well taken. Matthew is a fine chef. His food knowledge, enthusiasm and taste was out of this world. I had 10 foodies at my home for a Surprise Bday party. I think I was the most surprised at what a fine meal we had. Many of the guests commented that it was one of the best meals they have ever had anywhere. Matt took the time to build a menu that suited the crowd. He also took the time to meet up. He stayed in touch prior to the evening to coordinate details of our night. We even all made gnocchi with him. (a special cooking class treat) I I would like to tell you about my favorite course but literally every course was better than the next; ending with the belle noir dessert which I can still taste. I will use this service again and hope that Matt will be available.

We had the BEST experience with Chef Rodolfo! He was great with communication and expectations up front. We were staying at an airbnb in which the kitchen posed a few problems but he came right in and was able to adapt quickly. All 4 dishes were incredible and we enjoyed his company and conversation through out the meal. It was an intimate setting and just what we were looking for.

Chef Damon was professional and amazing. We hired him to cook for our parents 40th anniversary and he absolutely killed it! It will go down as the best present ever and we could not be happier. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS CHEF!!

Chef Anthony was AMAZING!! He made our birthday so special and what a fun experience trying a long based meal. One of my friends loves to cook and kept hovering asking questions and he took time out to teach her his techniques, he was very thoughtful. Our group really vibed with him and his assistant.

Chef Keven Lee, aka "Cheven, created an awesome experience for my wife and our guests. We hired Cheven to create a Mediterranean menu for us and everything from starter, appetizers, main dish and dessert were incredible both in presentation and flavors. Additionally, Cheven has a great personality and does an exceptional job of explaining each dish and wine pairing. Cheven and his assistant brought everything for the event and cleaned the kitchen spotlessly before he left. Because of the great experience, several of our guests plan to hire Cheven in the future and we will be sure to do so as well. Big thumbs up!

Alberto was AMAZING. He was on time, well-mannered and even spent time to explain his process to my little children. He was a delightful presence in our house. And the food was incredible. We couldn’t stop raving - or eating. We would recommend him for any occasion.

We had Chef Jason cook us an excellent Mexican meal. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. The kitchen in our rental home was very close to the dining room and we didn’t even know Chef was there. He left the kitchen spotless and allowed us to thoroughly enjoy our dinner and experience. A great way to end our trip to San Diego!

I had the chef come for my birthday dinner and everything was perfect. The food was delicious and the chef was very polite and professional. Chef was extremely helpful when picking the menu for the night and attentive to my dietary needs. He left the kitchen spotless. I would 10/10 recommend Chef Ben and the Take a Chef service. Thank you for an amazing dinner!

Chef John was a delight to have!! He was so communicative and helpful before the party and so pleasant to chat with on site. The food was PHENOMENAL. My friends and I kept saying how amazing the food was, over and over, as we stuffed our faces. Would absolutely work with him again!!! Thank you so much for helping make the Bachelorette special!

Chef Tim is fantastic. Executing a chef dinner at this time of crisis is difficult. Chef Tim, however, designed an amazing menu that we are still raving about. Can’t wait to have another event with chef Tim’s cooking when this COVID-19 crisis will be over.
