Chef Nico prepared an incredible menu for a NYE dinner for 12 people. He was very responsive and very flexible. Not only was his quote much less expensive than other chefs, his food was outstanding. I really enjoyed working with him and I would highly recommend hiring him.Jan 4, 2019Verified
Our wedding was a huge success, everyone loved the food and the value could not have been beaten. Chef Nico was very responsive, professional, and even helped us find a DJ. We have nothing but the highest regards for him.Aug 31, 2018Verified
We hired Nico to provide breakfast for our son's 6th birthday on December 23rd. He was very responsive as we hashed out the menu. He was very professional and everyone raved about his cheese omelettes, breakfast potatoes and bacon! He brought all his own cookware and did a phenomenal job cleaning up the kitchen when finished! He was beyond reasonably priced as well! We will definitely be using him for future events!Jan 8, 2018Verified
Chef Nico drove up to our house in Durham for a holiday party of 20 guests. He was entirely self-sufficient in our kitchen, preparing a diverse, elaborate 3-course meal that kept guests in awe of his talents. Nico is very professional, detailed and responsible, all of which I wanted in a chef for this important event.Dec 20, 2016Verified
We have never had an event where people raved about the food so much. Chef Nico handled everything beautifully and was preparing grilled options for 150 people...it was very impressive and we highly recommend him.Jun 27, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Budgeting is my life line. If you tell me $35 grocies is the max you want to spend for 6ppl party ill tell you what can be done. Im currently planning a second tv cooking show so im not going to charge as high as a normal chef would because this is also my marketing tool to network not to take all your money
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Complete understanding of the customers diet, allergies, discomforts(ex:not liking tomatoes), menu planning, and budget. I also do free taste testings or streaming video plate samples.
