Chef Mariko truly provided a memorable & delicious experience! The mouth watering scents wafting from my kitchen let everyone know they were in for a treat. The food was so flavorful, guests were not only going for seconds, but also asking for recipes! One taste and you knew that fresh, top-of-the-line products were used. Also, the servers anticipated needs of my guests by quickly re-filling food & drinks. Clean up was efficient but not invasive. Overall, the entire staff was approachable and friendly. I would definitely hire Chef Mariko and her team again. She certainly knows her stuff & is so easy to work with.

Chef Mariko was Amazing to work with with! The planning of my dinner party could not have been easier and the outcome was beyond my expectation! I entertained frequently but never have had a chef to my home Mariko and her asst were fantastic and catered to my and my guests every need. Most important however was the food which was cooked,served, presented, and timed to perfection. I highly recommend her truffle risotto. If you have your own ideas, which I did Chef Mariko’s flexibility and creativity is a pleasure to work with. The dinner party I had with Chef Mariko in the kitchen was the best party I ever had. Everyone was raving about the food and As the hostess I got to ENJOY my party,,,,I will definitely have her back in my kitchen!!!!!

Chef Mariko was fantastic! She was so easy and fun to work with and she created a truly delicious and memorable meal. We hosted 11 people for my mom’s 60th birthday (a surprise!) and my mom is still glowing from the event. She was so happy she was moved to tears. Mariko helped make the whole night seamless and all the guests continually raved about the food. And the server/bartender she brought was fantastic as well. We definitely recommend her for your next special event!!

Mariko did an amazing job for us!
We had a smallish (14 people) dinner party in a private home, and we really let Mariko take the wheel on most of our food, cocktail and table decor choices… less stuff for us to think about. And were we ever satisfied with the results!
She’s got great energy, a great aesthetic eye, and everything that came out of her kitchen tasted awesome. We’re still getting compliments from our guests.
We’d definitely use Mariko again.

Mariko was wonderful- perfect evening for dinner with friends. Very friendly and professional.
MAY 26, 2014, LOS ANGELES
Mariko was super helpful, friendly and made the experience an awesome one, especially for someone with very little kitchen/cooking experience.
She came over to my place to take a quick look at what kitchen equipment I had and then we went grocery shopping and then came back to my place where we meal prepped 7-days worth of meals (14 meals total).
It was super helpful and to see someone who knows what they are doing do it saved me a lot of trial and error money and time.
Highly recommend Mariko

Mariko was very professional and the guests really enjoyed her food. She brought a bartender who was amazing and really took care of all my guests. I probably interacted with him more than Mariko but all her behind the scenes in the kitchen facilitated a very enjoyable 50th birthday for my husband.

Chef Mariko set out a beautiful antipasto assortment of gourmet cheeses, meats, balsamic grilled fruit, and more. For our meal, we had grilled romaine salad, NY strip steak, risotto, oven roasted vegetables, and chocolate soufflé. Each course was served and explained, every bit as delicious as it sounded. Mariko and her assistant were awesome: friendly, professional, skilled, wonderful… This was a surprise birthday dinner for my wife who just had a baby, and who has been raving for days about how great the experience was from start to finish. I couldn’t have wanted more. Thank you Chef!

OMG! OMG!! OMG!!!
Chef Mariko is a culinary genius! The meal was AMAZING – perfectly balanced – perfectly seasoned and cooked.
I have already started thinking up reasons to have her come back and cook for us again!
And…of course, I LOVED the pink hair and co-ordinated boots and culinary tools – pink KNIVES and all!
Thanks Mariko for an amazing meal and to Kitchit for providing such a kick-a** service!

Chef Amekodommo was great! We had an amazing meal and enjoyed every bit of it. She showed up two hours before the dinner to prep and cook, and then left everything spotless when we were done. We would definitely have her back.

Mariko was awesome. Very professional and polite. She made the night very enjoyable and the food was delicious. My guest were all very pleased. We absolutely plan to invite Mariko over again soon!

Chef Mariko Amekommo,
Chef Mariko and her team are very professional but felt like part of our extended family. We gave them the kitchen and the garden to source fruit from for some of the dishes and they came up with a creative unique smorgasbord catered to our needs. Thank you gals and guy for helping complete a perfect evening.

Mariko is the most adorable delicious chef ever!
We had a blast!
Thank you a million times over!

Chef Mariko was fabulous. Not only did she arrive on time with all the materials she needed, she greeted us with a big smile and was full of energy. In the kitchen, she whipped out her pink knives and delivered three courses of phenomenal cuisine (cedar plank filet! crab macaroni and cheese! flourless chocolate tort!), while sharing with my guests how she crafted everything. While we were enjoying dessert, she cleaned everything up and left the kitchen spotless. It was so great to work with Chef over email before the event to put together a magnificent menu. She’s super creative, friendly, and was a joy to have in our home. We would definitely want Chef Mariko in our kitchen again!

Mariko was great. The food was delicious. I requested the menu with and Asian flare and the lettuce cup help-yourself appetizers were yummy and fun. She did both a Salmon and Beef entree and a Gluten free birthday cake. Both her and her assistant were fun to have in the house and the dinner party was a great success! THANKS!

Mariko is amazing!! We threw so many curve balls into the equation, and she took it all with a smile. She’s very fun, accommodating, and creative. We had an unforgettable experience.

I cannot say enough about how amazing Chef Mariko was for my party. First of all, I am a picky b**ch – so I expect high quality. Chef Mariko surpassed all my expectations. She stepped in just a few days before because my original chef had to cancel. The Kitchit concierge paired us up, and they could not have done better. She was thoughtful (calling on her way over asking if there was anything I needed that I had forgotten – which I had, ice) and showed up ready to go. The food was fantastic, her table-side manner was sparkling, and it was the absolutely perfect experience. Before we got up from the table, people were already asking when we could do it again. This was definitely the first of many events I will do with Kitchit and Chef Mariko.
