What People Say About Private Chefs on Cozymeal


Kaitlyn
Kaitlyn K.

Bay Area, CA

"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!!"

"Chef Santiago cooked us a fantastic meal (elevated game day meal) for my friends and I. He was incredibly professional, kind, accommodating to dietary preferences and a great addition to our celebration. His food was fresh and delicious and we were left with ample leftovers which we devoured. We strongly recommend him. Thank you Chef Santiago."
