Our Luxury building complex was planning our 2nd Annual Holiday Party and we were on a tighter budget than the previous year with potentially more residents to feed. I am so glad Anja Lee Catering was referred to us and that we chose her out of 7 Caterers that we got quotes from!! Our residents are generally health conscious but pretty demanding and we were able to choose from her Extensive Menu a variety of items including a few gluten-free and even Vegan items! We had some filling meats and fish items that were very satisfying too!! I really liked her smoked salmon sliders and I heard raves about the Turkey meatballs. The saffron paella was very tasty beautiful and satisfying too!! Anja was so utterly professional responsive to our questions and the various people involved in getting the event together, I give her an A+++ for patience and professionalism!! On the day of the event her staff was extremely smooth, efficient fast and happy!! Many people commented that they were so pleased that the food was so good and healthy and that we didn't run out!! I'm not sure how she does it but she and her staff deserves to take a bow!! We will definitely have her Catering at the top of our short list for future events and cooking classes! Some of our residents wanted to get her menus and she graciously accommodated. THANK YOU SO MUCH ANJA WITTELS, you are Amazing!!

I would definitely recommend Anja's class hands down over Parties That Cook. Although I preferred the Parties That Cook venue, we received zero instruction and it felt exactly like cooking a Blue Apron or HelloFresh meal, which just wasn't fun at all to me. With Anja's class, I walked away with awesome new skills and tips, which is exactly what you want from a good cooking class. Anja is a warm, likeable and a VERY knowledgeable and experienced chef. I would HIGHLY recommend her for a group event. She was a great teacher for cooks of all levels.

Anja is wonderful to work with. We have used Anja Lee Catering for both one of our corporate retreats (3 days and nights, 50 people.) We then did a team building cooking class last night with her for 8 people and it was lot of fun.
Anja has a very warm and bubbly personality and teaches skills you can use easily at home. I would note that recipes are more "home cooked" style than fancier restaurant style and tend to be quite healthy (which I thought was great!)

"Anja catered our annual gala (300+ guests at Fort Mason's Gallery 308) and was absolutely wonderful to work with. She went above and beyond in every aspect in planning the event, from hosting a private tasting in our office to build a custom menu, to ordering extra supplies for the bar, to being reachable at all times, even while she was on vacation. The evening of the event she and her staff were ON IT -- professional, friendly, and quick to respond to our needs. She went out of her way to match our futuristic/space theme, getting costumes for her staff:) The food was delicious (she's such a talented chef!) and multiple guests told me her glitter-dusted brownies were the best they've ever had. Will definitely work with her again:)"

"Never heard of Anja Lee Catering until I attended an event and Anja Lee catered to over 400 people. WAY TO GO! Anja is not only an unbelievable chef but she works with you on what food option you would like so you're not feeling as if you're having to everything on your own. She also has amazing staff that helps assist in bring out the food. If you are trying to determine if you should go with Anja Lee Catering for your event, let me be the one to tell you that you should! You will get the best service and food you could have imagined. Your guest will be very pleased with this catering company because mine surely was!
THANK YOU ANJA LEE CATERING!"

"I came here for a team bonding event and we had SUCH a fun time!! She rented out a kitchen in the mission which was super easy for us to get to. Anja was very prepared and accommodating. We had 8 people total, one person vegan, one person gluten free, and she was able to cater to everyone's dietary restrictions. We made a salad which I didn't think I would like but was awesome- with beets, tomatoes, goat cheese, and a french mustard/ red wine vinegar/ olive oil vinaigrette. Our main dish was dungenouss crab risotto which was delicious and there was soooo much fresh crab. Our dessert was a strawberry crumble which was gluten free for our one gluten free person. Everything was so delicious and plenty of food. We had such a fun time and I would love to do another cooking class with her!"

"After meeting Anja through a cozymeal.com cooking class, I asked her to host a private dinner for my coworkers and I. The meal was absolutely delicious and the presentation was incredible. Anja made the night so easy by taking care of everything in the kitchen and serving all of the courses hot and at a great pace for our dinner. Everyone's favorite dish was Anja's specialty dessert with berries and dark chocolate crumble. I would definitely recommend Anja to anyone looking for a personal chef for an event or cooking class!"

"Anja's energy in teaching our team to cook was amazing! She was positive, enthusiastic, funny, and patient with our team (whose attention can be difficult to hold)!"

"Anja came to my home to cook for 20 of my friends for a New Year's Eve celebration and was just wonderful! She was organized, thoughtful and jumped right in to my kitchen as though she had been there before and required no explanations. She was professionals and yet so sweet. My husband and friends all loved her. The food was delicious and meet all my expectations! She cleaned all the dishes and helped me to stay on track with the evening; giving me reminders to seat the guests and knowing when it was time to clear the table. She was amazing and makes me want to have more parties in my home this way! "

"We had Anja come over and do a cooking class for our company employees and significant others. She helped craft an amazing menu, wine pairings and tasty treats. Everything went off without a hitch and people couldn't stop raving about how much they enjoyed her instruction. While the food was great, it was her personality and pleasant spirit that really made this an awesome experience. Couldn't recommend her more highly."

"I was searching for a last minute surprise to end a birthday scavenger hunt...and was set up with Chef Anja who was absolutely a doll My boyfriend and I both had a blast. I will definitely want to book a ravioli making workshop of something that she might have up her sleeve with family and friends in the future. Anja had such a great flare in the kitchen. I enjoyed her teaching approach to the class because even with a little culinary background you can learn much from Anja. Anja even set up a host for us to carry out our lesson. The host was wonderful as well. Everything worked out great. I definitely would recommend this for small groups, for birthdays, anniversaries, a fun date, and definitely for a Christmas present. Thanks again!"

"We had Chef Anja come over to our apartment for a private pasta making class. We had a blast while learning how to prepare a delicious Italian meal. She taught us tips and techniques, leaving us with skills to recreate the dishes on our own. Would recommend everyone to take one of her classes!"

"I had chef Anja's combo cooking class where we made French crepes, gnocchi, as well as soup and really liked it. She is very knowledgeable and super nice. We learned a lot and the resulting dishes were DELICIOUS!"
