Greg came over to cook for my husband's birthday. He was professional & punctual, and the food was delicious! We really enjoyed our evening with him and would recommend his services as a private chef.

We had a great experience with Chef Greg. The menu was very robust and each course was delicious. We were full by the end of the dinner! We didn't know what to expect since this was our first time. The process is: The Chef cooks and he explains his cooking process and provides tips and techniques along the way. We asked questions and he was great at sharing his knowledge. (This isn't one of those "hand-on" learning by "doing" classes -- but you get to watch the chef work and learn by observing -- which was just as great!). After each course was prepared, we ate, fresh off the heat, and talked about the dish, prior to moving on to the next course. It was interesting to watch a real chef work, close up. Greg was kind and was great at handling our dog too, even though he kept interrupting and begging for food. We very much enjoyed the experience and learned plenty. And, did I mention, the food was delicious? Great class. Thank you Chef Greg!
