Reviews and Testimonials

Phil catered our commitment ceremony weekend in Boonville, CA and we cannot say enough good things about him or his food. He prepares gourmet vegan food made with seasonal local ingredient and yet still manages to offer delicious options that appeal to vegans and omnivores alike. Phil was very flexible and accommodating during the entire planning process. To top it off, Phil bantered with the guests and really contributed to the positive energy we so wanted to cultivate for the weekend. The food alone is reason enough to go with Phil. The fact that he is such a great person will make you glad that you did!

Philip's food is outstanding. I hired him to cater a private event and also attended one of his dinner concerts. In both cases the cuisine and service were top-notch, some of the best vegan food my husband and I (both mostly-vegan vegetarians) have ever experienced. Highly recommended.

I just finished eating the noodles & made myself from the Ramen class I took on Saturday, and it was phenomenal; I will definitely be taking more classes from Philip in the future. I've been on Philip's mailing list for quite some time, but this was my first cooking class, and I loved it! It's taught in an intimate environment where you can see *everything* that's being done, and you get to participate in every part of the process, ask questions, and receive feedback.
