Food was delicious . Presentation was beautiful



19 Feb 2024

My husband and I were gifted a Cozymeal gift card and decided to put it toward a private chef experience. Chef Derrick cooked a beautiful meal for us. The steaks were huge and flavorful, the avocado fries were crispy and the side dishes were all tasty. It was our first time trying potatoes terrine and we liked the way he prepared this particular side dish. Our dinner was very gourmet and Chef Derrick was professional, easy to make conversation with and he even let my toddler snack on some of the ingredients while he was cooking. We enjoyed leftovers the next day because there was so much food!! Thank you Chef Derrick for a memorable Valentine's Day.
