Hi Nicole, Thank you so much for the review. It was my pleasure to cook for you and your friends. :)
I hired Chef Pato to surprise my husband with an Anniversary dinner. With a newborn, elementary aged kids with homework and my husband's busy work schedule it was too much effort to coordinate going out for dinner and hiring a sitter. Chef Pato was very professional. He communicated well in advance. He was punctual. He even incorporated meals for my young children. The food was delicious and his presentation was wonderful! We are considering him to come monthly for the same experience. You will not regret hiring him at all. I've already referred him to others and am about to contact him again for another service request.Dec 10, 2015VerifiedThe Happy Hour Chefs Catering,Personal Chef's reply
Hi Nik, Thank You so much for the review. It was a pleasure to cook for you and your family on your anniversary. Regards Chef Pato
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?It matters what type of event it is and what type of foods they want prepared. If it is a sit down plated meal my prices run from $60-$150 a person. If it is a catering event the prices vary if they want formal or casual events. I try to work with the potential client the best way that I can. I work the menu around their budget.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I do a consultation with them once they pick me as their chef. We will see what their budget is and what type of meal they want cooked. I cook what they want me to cook. A lot of caterers/chefs have menus already set. I don't believe in that because if you are paying me you should eat what you want to eat, not what I want you to eat.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?graduated from Le Cordon Bleu with honors. I also cooked at the Borgata Hotel and worked as a sous chef for Executive Chef Alassane Seck. I never stop thinking about cooking even on my days off. I am always reading and searching new ways of cooking.
