Reviews for Lawrenceville meal preparers
Charles S.
Ian’s service was unmatched! I hired him to cook for me and my wife’s 11 year anniversary. His prompt and warm response to my inquiry is what made me hire him. We had a quick consultation call and he made some suggestions for our dinner. Ian showed up to our home on time and was extremely professional. He prepared the dinner and served us a 3 course meal. The food was beyond delicious and it made me and my wife’s dinner date perfect. He even cooked extras and served our children. Ian cleaned afterwards and left our kitchen spotless. I highly recommend this brother’s cooking service for any special occasion. He’s the real deal. Thx Ian!
