Chef Nate was unbelievable! He came and hosted a very fun sushi making lesson for our party of 12 which was amazing. He also cooked up delicious appetizers for cocktail hour (both hot and cold) and then an unending sushi dinner. I am not kidding. All 12 guests went back for seconds, some thirds, and we still had leftovers. The fish was super high quality. He and his wife Jackie were very professional, showed up early and left our house sparkling clean. All of our specific requests were met perfectly. I will definitely use him for our next event. An added note, this all took place outside, which was even more impressive.

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 11 - 20 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • Asian • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

I never thought I could have such exquisite, “fine dining” food made in my own kitchen! If I could give them a Michelin star, I would!! Details: I hired them to prepare a tasting menu at our home for our anniversary. They showed up with place settings, nicely printed menus of 6 courses with our names and anniversary on it, a Sake pairing (a gift from them), their own kitchen cookware, flatware, and serving dishes. And when they left they, it was like they were never here!! Actually my kitchen was cleaner than when they arrived! The food portions for nice too! I’m a big eater and even I was content. My wife we ready to tap out by course 4 but powered on she didn’t want to miss what was coming next. I could go on and on. You just NEED to hire them in you want an UNFORGETTABLE experience! Trust me your palate will thank you!

Nathaniel was amazing! He was extremely accommodating, friendly, and professional! From start to finish, the entire experience was personal and delicious. We were so happy to find him for a birthday dinner we were throwing. Everything was taken care of by him from set up to cleaning up. The food was better than any restaurant we could have chosen in the area! Can’t recommend him enough!!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 3 - 5 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • Asian • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.
