We had a terrific experience when we hired ChefThyme for a dinner and wine tasting party for 10 guests in our home. Leopold cooked us a 4-course meal while 10 of us tasted wine, talked and relaxed in and around the kitchen where he was working. I have never hired a chef before. It was all the fun of a dinner party, with almost none of the work and none of the stress with food! No planning, shopping, or worry that my meal won't turn out. Leopold has a very easy-going personality that fits in with any party. The food was delicious, unique, nicely presented, and I could tell a lot of work went into it. Leopold worked hard and quickly, but maintained a cool exterior and moved gracefully around the kitchen with all my guests hanging around, probably getting in his way. He cleaned as he went, so there was no big mess at the end. He even wiped down my big stove, which was the icing on the cake. ChefThyme made this party such a nice experience, I would not hesitate to do it again.
