Tania was excellent to work with. Great communication and response times. She made a delicious Mediterranean catered dinner that was delivered for a bachelorette party of 8. Plenty of food and clear directions for garnishes and reheating. She made accommodations for the vegetarian in the group which was excellent. Would recommend her to anyone looking for a personal chef for any private event. Thanks again Tania for your excellent service!

Details: Brunch / dinner party • 6 - 10 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • Mediterranean / Middle Eastern • Asian • Mexican / Latin American • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.
