John was perfect for our Mother's 80th birthday. Intimate 4 person dinner at her home since she doesn't like to go out much. John was very accommodating with the diet restrictions and the options he gave. The food was delicious! Would definitely hire again and again.Oct 27, 2018Verified

John made a delicious meal, working in every request thrown his way. He responded quickly to every email, and everyone enjoyed his presence at the house as well. Would book again!Oct 23, 2018Verified
I just realized I did not write a review. John definitely exceeded our couples dinner expectations. We had a delectable 4 course meal. He and his son were very professional and will definitely book again when back in Atlanta. Thanks John.Sep 7, 2018Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I offer a suggested menu based on their request, and then ask for their input to start a dialogue. I stay in touch so that they are assured their party will go exactly as they want it to.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I went to Hilton Head to be a golf pro, and to make extra money I worked as a waiter at night. One night they were short staffed in the kitchen, and I offered to help. One thing led to another and within 3 months I was head chef and managing a kitchen staff of 25. I never looked back.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I am comfortable in any job. I love doing a 5 course sit down dinner for 6, or a wedding for 100. Every job is so different. As a Private Chef working in people's homes for over 25 years, I haven't had one exactly like another.
