Chef Tony made unforgettable food that we are still talking about to anyone who will listen. He was very responsive in questions and concerns before the night, he was on time to make sure we ate at our desired time and the food....THE FOOD!! Wow, just WOW. He made us AMAZING chamango margs while the wife and I could spend quality time together playing pool and couples question game i found. He made us a peruvian meal which started with beef hearts (I cant get over how yum that was), and then he made mango ceviche which left me speechless and making weird noises and I danced in my chair eating it (only very good food makes me do that), and the main course was filet mignon chunks with lots of yummy things made by big fire! Very fun to watch, and he made little cheesecakes with mango chunks on top. Every ingredient was fresh. He served us, went over all of the ingredients and how and what he did (we learned a lot), and he cleaned up afterwards leaving us having to do nothing but eat and spend time together the way we wanted to. He made an incredible experience for us that we very much needed and appreciate. We both agreed he made food better than any restaurant we have been to and this will not be the last time we hire him. I 110% recommend Chef Tony.

we had such a great experience having private dining and a private dinner for Mother’s Day. We have a infant baby boy, and so taking time out for my wife’s first Mother’s Day would’ve been a real chore. Having Chef tony make a five star world class dinner right in front of us and the convenience of having it in our own home was so memorable, we would totally do it again.

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 2 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • American - casual • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

I decided to look for a chef to do a dinner for a small group - only my family - on the 4th of July. As much as I do like to cook, I didn’t want to spend any time in the kitchen and wanted a relaxing day with my family. When I first spoke to him, I liked Chef Tony right away. He is a really nice guy, has an enormous passion for cooking and food and great people skills. He has great menu ideas, he listens and we had a great plan to do a casual (but special) al fresco dinner for my family. The meal was absolutely amazing - Chef prepared TriTip Wagyu, flank stank and short ribs, with an excellent Chimichurri Sauce on the side, Roast Stuffed Bell Peppers, Corn on the Cob, Arugula and Spinach Salad, Roasted Smashed Baby Fingerling Potatoes, He made guacamole two ways and Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream with a Wild Berry Compote and Fresh Whipped Cream. It was just awesome! He and his crew were so pleasant, so professional and very chill. They are perfect as home chefs, private event chefs/staff (which was our situation) as they are just so easy going, have such great people skills and are so great to have in my kitchen and I cannot stress enough that the dinner he prepared was absolutely phenomenal!!! I’ll definitely be asking Chef Tony to do more for us, he’s an amazing find!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Details: Holiday meal (Mother's day, Valentine's day, etc.) • 6 - 10 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • Cold beverages (non-alcoholic) • Southern • Mexican / Latin American • American - casual • Nut allergies • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.
