Outstanding! Stop looking! You have found your personal chef! Dustin prepared not only a splendid meal, he is very personable and fit in with our family perfectly. He recently prepared a birthday meal for my entire family in the comfort of our own home. He carefully came up with a meal that met our family's needs. This included preparing his own homemade pasta and made the most delicious soup and salmon dish. He took the time to thoughtfully prepare and present each "dish." He explained that each course was a small plate, but to me they were full courses. Each course was delicious and had me dreaming of them through the next day.

Our experience with Justin as our personal chef for a family reunion of 20 in Breckenridge was absolutely perfect! After interviewing several chefs he stood out immediately with his superior experience with Italian food, Italian heritage and love for cooking. The value was right in the middle and we were very pleased with the cost and what we received. Not only was the food handmade in front of us with exceptional ingredients but Justin involved all of our Italian family and made it a very fun, educational and inclusive experience. He had thick skin even when my grandma told him he was making the pasta and gnocchi wrong!!! They both turned out perfect despite her memories of how it “should” be made:) His handmade sauce was perfection and the meatballs were to die for! Chicken parmigiana was amazing, moist and flavorful! He went above and beyond to make sure we were able to express our stories and our memories while helping him in a hands-on way to create a dinner that brought generations together and memories of our late Nona to the forefront of our hearts and minds. Truly unforgettable experience. Justin is doing exactly what he was made to do in this world! Thank you Justin from the bottom of the Zollo Families hearts❤️
