Chef Chris was absolutely fantastic! I wanted to do something special for my husband's 65th birthday and it was perfect. We loved the fresh and elegant ingredients, and he graciously shared many of his tips and recipes. With his background as a culinary educator and personal chef, I'd highly recommend Chef Chris for a private dinner or a team-building event!

I had an amazing experience with my wife. This was perfect for a date night. I plan to do this again with a different menu. I hope to have Chef Chris again!! He was funny, knowledgeable, and patient. As a novice, I felt right at home. Chris was an amazing host.
