Scott was awesome -- fun to work with and a great sense of humor. The food was delicious, and it was great to have the kitchen all cleaned up while we ate. Highly recommend.

We had an amazing time with Chef Scott! He was so helpful and personable. He told us different techniques when it comes to making pizza and other foods as well. I do not eat meat and he made sure to bring special food for me and still meat products for my fiance. We had a great time and highly recommend Chef Scott!
