Chef Santiago helped me surprise my husband with the most delicious New Orleans style dinner. He was patient enough to teach us how to prepare, cook and bake every dish and even left the kitchen cleaner than he found it. We enjoyed his company and conversation as well. Would love to have him come back! Thanks, Santiago.

Chef Santiago was amazing -- food was tasty and he was professional. We didn't tell him to keep to himself but he kept his focus entirely on the food and the experience. The Greek cuisine food was so good and so filling. The appetizer board was beautiful and so yummy! The lamb was great, too. I wish I wasn't so full. And the cheesecake was SO GOOD. He served it a bit warm which I had never had before but turned out it was better than I could have imagined. I hope to use his services again in the future! Thanks, Santiago!

This was my second time having Chef Santiago work with me on special occasions. First, my girlfriend's surprise Christmas gift and my now fiance's engagement dinner (hours after the proposal) with 9 people. Chef did an incredible job working with a large group of people both teaching and cooking at the same time. He did a great job of being patient and diligent about his work. And as usual, the food was great. My now in-laws loved the surprise which made me very happy. Well done and consistent as usual chef Santiago. Book him now!
