I decided to hire a personal chef instead of the usual restaurant celebration for my husbands birthday! He was very surprised. I had never hired a personal chef before and vivian for sure didn’t disappoint. The food she cooked was delicious and she even made extra for my dad to try. I can’t believe she drove all the way from Tampa to Fort Lauderdale for us. She was so friendly and our kids loved her. We definitely connect because we are both moms of twins! We will definitely hire her again😉

Chef Alain was hired for a Father’s Day dinner for a party of 9 at my home. He was responsive, punctual, but most importantly he cooked an enjoyable meal for my family. Alain created a personal menu with unique dishes. The complex flavors in his homemade sauces are unlike any you have tried in restaurants. His assistant, April, was also a pleasure! I would highly recommend him for personal private event, such as an anniversary or holiday!

Working with Traci was a lifesaver for me! He was able to help me pull together my party in only 4 days from our first contact. He used the best quality ingredients and prepared and cooked them to perfection. Presentation of the food was beautiful. Traci also put together a last minute appetizer for me. His staff was helpful and friendly and offered to help me in ways I hadn't thought of. They were punctual and the kitchen was left clean. I really enjoyed my first time using a personal chef and reccomend Traci!
