Wow- Where do I start with my time with Chef Robin. Chef Robin was SPECTACULAR! I decided to use Chef Robin for a Christmas gift and it turned out to be an unbelievable gift! Chef Robin was on-time, polite, and extremely professional throughout our experience. She went above and beyond our expectations and her food was outstanding! Her food was fun, simple, yet extremely creative that included tons of delicious flavor! We will definitely be using Chef Robin in the future for other catering/dinner parties/ private chef lessons. I would highly recommend Chef Robin to anyone who is looking for an unbelievable & fun personal chef experience!
