Great cook. Got him for my mom and she really loved his cooking. You definitely will not regret using him. Thoughtful and honest. 5 star
- Sami E., July 28, 2020
Jami is a very hard worker. I asked her to cook foods with which she was unfamiliar, using ingredients that she didn't know (tofu, tempeh, etc.). Furthermore, I was running late and had not unpacked the groceries. She took all this in stride. Jami read through the recipes, rummaged through the grocery bags, and set to work with a smile. She could not have been more accommodating. Unfortunately, the cooking took much longer than anticipated. I had hired a different tasker to cook for me before, and based the time on how long it would have taken him. I wish I had asked Jami how long she thought these recipes would take her, but I didn't. Somehow, not all of the ingredients had been delivered. Jami volunteered to go to the store, pick up what was needed, and cook that recipe at home. Super sweet. On the other hand, what I thought would be a 5-hour job, took 3 days. I have learned some valuable lessons about hiring and interviewing taskers. Jami really did work hard to fulfill the task. Next time I will hire someone familiar with vegan foods, and with more experience. Now I know. Apparently she makes a mean twice-baked potato, though! Just sayin' it sounded delicious to me.l

Great tasker, very enthusiastic to help me cook and learn quickly.
- Mannan J., November 08, 2019
Malissa Is a great and fun person. She prepared a delicious meal - enough for a few meals actually. I had asked her to teach me a new recipe and then we discussed how to use the many veggies we chopped in different ways for the week ahead.

Annie's cooking was excellent!
- Clarence L., August 29, 2019
I have hired Sal twice to cook one week of Whole 30 approved meals, and he did a fantastic job. In addition to taking into consideration my likes and dislikes, he made two separate deliveries to ensure the meals were fresh, and he also sent the meal plan ahead of time in case I wanted to made adjustments. I highly recommend hiring Sal for your cooking and baking needs. He is helpful, responsive, and is also a Whole 30 veteran, so he understands the limitations of the diet.

Joe's work is always excellent. He works fast and clean, leaving my kitchen smelling delicious, and sparkling clean. He is also one of the kindest people I've had the pleasure to meet of late. What more can I say, that hasn't been said in my previous reviews? Joe is a hard and cheerful worker who produces yummy vegan and vegetarian food in my tiny kitchen, all with a smile on my face. He makes my life better, and that's worth so much!

this is not my first, or even second, favorable review for Joe S.; there are just so many good things to say! his communication skills are excellent, both online and in person. he is always prompt. he's such a good cook! and he cleans up after he's done. Joe is comfortable following a recipe, and can also improvise as needed. Tonight, for example, I have a full fridge. Recipes were vegan chick pea curry, and vegan green posole. Improvisation was a duck egg frittata. All tackled in good humor and with alacrity. And this is why Joe comes to cook every two weeks. He, and his food, are that good!

What more can I say? Joe has been cooking for me for quite some time now, and I have written several reviews (all favorable). He arrives on time, and works diligently, efficiently, and clean. I'm vegetarian, aspiring to make the leap to vegan. Joe has not yet met a recipe he can't cook. Tonight I had chosen 3 recipes, and he read through them, then cooked for 3 hours straight. Honestly, I don't know how he does it. I would be remiss if I did not mention how delicious everything is. Seriously. If you need a motivated, independent, vegetarian/vegan cook, you should hire Joe. Just make sure he still has time for me, please!

Joe is an excellent vegan/vegetarian cook. Beyond that, he is always on time, he works hard, fast, safe and clean. I'm not sure, but I don't think the word "no" is in his vocabulary. Joe, quite simply, is an absolute gem.

Not only is Joe an excellent cook, he is kind beyond measure. He shows up early, works diligently, and leaves my kitchen looking better than he found it. And the food!!!! Anything from curries to a duck egg frittata to Mexican ... never has he said no to a request, and never has his food missed the mark. I truly admire Joe's ability and versatility in the kitchen, plus he's just a super nice guy. Thanks for another fabulously full fridge, Joe!

Excellent, prompt service. 
- Susan K., December 16, 2018
this was the second time Joe has come here to cook. i chose most of the recipes, and provided all ingredients, and Joe went right to work in the kitchen. he worked tirelessly for 4 hours, and because it was all vegan, that required a lot of chopping and slicing and dicing. i am somewhat disabled, so it would have been quite difficult for me to produce what he did, even if i had more time. Joe is an excellent cook and i feel healthier, knowing there's lots of good food in the fridge. thanks, Joe!

how does one write the MOST favorable review? Joe S. is a wonderful cook! everything he made is delicious. he. cooks efficiently and left my kitchen sparkling clean. while he was cooking, my apartment smelled amazing; i'm surprised my neighbors didn't show up with their knives and forks, napkins tucked under their chins! would I hire Joe again? you betcha. both for his excellent cooking, and for his stellar work ethic and cheerful, can-do demeanor. Thank you, Joe S., for improving the quality of my life.

Excellent Chef for a dinner party. Will hire him again next time we entertain. Really lovely to be able to sit back and interact with guests, rather than worry about the food. He was also excellent with our children.

- Ashley D., August 17, 2016
Mika was fantastic. She arrived on time for a job that included prepping for a party, set up, putting food out, a little bit of cooking and getting the bar set up. She was also on hand when guests started arriving and helped with serving drinks and food. Meka was so courteous and I can't recommend her more highly. I will definitely be using her again.
