Chef Collin’s food was amazing. Our whole party loved it. The details in the flavor profiles were so fantastic and the pairing of dishes was great. My wife was blown away at the surprise menu and we got nothing but compliments. The squash salad was incredibly refreshing and the black cod, polenta, ribs and mashed potatoes were a fantastic pairing of sweet, acidic and savory flavors. We ended with the cheesecake which was perfect and the pear/mint topping rounded off the meal in a great way. throughout the whole process Chef Collin was communicative and prompt with his responses, easy to work with, and extremely helpful. Thanks again, you are great at what you do.

Wonderful food. Chef Collin was prompt and provided a lovely spread and cocktail suggested upon request. He was flexible with timing which was super helpful, and bussed the kitchen when done. 10/10!

I highly recommend Chef Collin. He made a delicious 4 course menu for my friend’s 50th birthday for 6 of us. His menu was elegant restaurant quality with ingredient driven options. I looked at 5 total private chefs and Chef Collin had the most innovative choices by far. Planning with Chef Collin was easy going with clear expectations. It was a full service restaurant experience in the comfort of our AirBnB. It was a ‘foodie’ crowd and we were all impressed.
