Had such a great experience with Chef Christina! She made the process very easy and the food was amazing! Would recommend to anyone looking for a personal chef experience!Jul 29, 2020Verified
Chef Chrissy is great to work with! She is very responsive and easy to talk to. Her food was delicious and the portions were huge. She really made my husband's birthday special and memorable. I will definitely contact her again for any catering needs. Great job!Oct 16, 2020Verified
Chef Christina is simply awesome. She was on time and ready to go. She called me frequently on the appointed date to let me know she was in route, how close she was and then finally that she had arrived. She did everything she could to ensure that my husband was truly surprised for his birthday and it worked! She was also very professional given the COVID-19 situation. She wore a mask and shoe coverings the entire time. The food was A-MA-ZING! We had 2 appetizers, one of which was a unique take on Jamaica’s national dish- Ackee and Saltfish. She used jack fruit instead of ackee and I, being from a Jamaican family and having grown up eating authentic Jamaican food, was thoroughly impressed by her ingenuity. We had curried lamb chops, jerk salmon and fried lobster for the main course - so delicious! We ate so much that we couldn’t even touch the dessert. But we eagerly tried it the next day. It was a moist, delicious pineapple upside down cake. Everything was superb. I’ll put it this way - Chef Christina throws down in the kitchen!!Oct 19, 2020Verified
Chef Christina was absolutely amazing! She was very timely and came prepared with all of the required materials. The Mac and cheese shots were phenomenal! Chef Christina was very timely and she was sure to clean up after the meal preparation, which was greatly appreciated. I will be sure to book Chef Christina in the future.Sep 21, 2020Verified
Chef Christina was great to work with for a bachelorette party we threw at our friend's home! She was extremely responsive, worked with us on all aspects of the menu and recommendations, and was SO fun and sweet. The food and drinks she made and presentation were great and everyone absolutely loved it. I HIGHLY recommend her for any event (big or small) and would definitely use her in the future should I need a chef! She is so bubbly, kind, and made sure our party (11 total) were all taken care of before/during/after the meal. Book her, she rocks :)Sep 20, 2020Verified
