This personal chef will be my choice...'til us do part! Smile!! Chef Jeff afforded the absolute best evening, with so much fun and a gourmet on site prepared, delightfully delicious dining experience. He brought the freshest caught salmon. His home garden grown herbs and spices were especially titillating to the palate. Also, a happy, lively and lovely conversationalist, he made my intimate evening one to be remembered for a very long time. Thank you Jeff!! Do look to hear from me in the future!! ❤❤

What could I say about Chef Jimmy... outstanding. We weren't sure how we'd feel about having a personal chef come in but all our concerns were instantly dropped as soon as we met Jimmy and had a meal with him. He was able to accommodate even the most picky people (celiac, no meat, no dairy, ETC) while still making the rest so happy. All of the meals were SO delicious, we couldn't stop raving about it. He'd just ask us what we wanted and we told him what kind of protein and he went with it. We couldn't have been happier. We welcomed him in as one of our own and we seriously loved his company. Outstanding through and through. If we're ever in the Hollywood/Fort Lauderdale area we will definitely hit him up!

First and foremost Thank you chef Paul for an amazing dinner party! You made my 35th birthday rememberable!!!! I have to start with his patient over the phone when we needed to build the menu and I kept on getting all over the place, he just helped me make the right choices for my menu. Of course he was so professional showing up on time and cooking like a pro! We had a party of 10 and for that much food you didn’t even hear any noise from the kitchen. ALL the items he made for us were WOW! the plates got served and the food just disappeared from the plate immediately ! He even gave me a personal gift and sang for us which was a great surprise! And most important they left my kitchen as if we never had a dinner party going on... it was spotless!!! Thank you chef for a great night! We will see you again!!!!
