Roger was fantastic, had a personalized Vegan prepared by him as a Christmas gift. The food was amazing - well thought out, beautifully presented and most importantly delicious.

Chef Roger was simply amazing. He delighted us with a custom vegan menu, full of flavor, fresh ingredients, savory flavors, and healthy options. He conversed with us, but then allowed us to dine together as he faded into the background. He was kind. He was efficient and cleaned up as well! It was the perfect way to spend our evening. We will certainly have Chef Roger back in our home!

Chef Roger was amazing! I booked for my husbands birthday, and prior to the event he messaged to ask for tips on what we liked, was very responsive, and when he got to our place he was set up and running in less than 10minutes. The food was also phenomenal and exactly what my husband loves. He set the table, served each course with an explanation and chatted to us about each dish and his experiences which made for a very chill and lovely evening. At the end he cleaned up and my kitchen has never looked better. Highly recommend!!
