What a super unique and personal experience! I booked this a birthday gift for my husband, and the both of us loved all 3 courses. Besides meal leftovers, we were given extra ingredients (sauce, dough, cheese, etc.) to keep and use for later - that was an unexpected but lovely surprise. Chef Denis was very accommodating and personable with plenty of stories to share. I would book again for other cuisines!

Chef Denis Williams truly delivered an unforgettable dining experience right to my doorstep! From the moment he stepped into my apartment, his warmth and expertise set the stage for an enchanting evening. The Lord of the Rings-themed 3-course meal he prepared was nothing short of extraordinary. Each dish was a culinary masterpiece, showcasing his talent and creativity. Not only was Chef Denis incredibly kind and sweet throughout the evening, but he also shared his extensive knowledge of the culinary world, adding a delightful educational element to the experience. What truly impressed me was his attention to detail and professionalism - he left my kitchen spotless, as if he were never there. I cannot recommend Chef Denis Williams highly enough for anyone seeking an exceptional private dining experience.
