"Dillion, By the Graham, helped me formulate this dinner from the get go; from the concept, the menu, and finally the food itself. I was hosting a dinner party for some friends, an annual thing we do. This one was special. A couple in our group were going to be moving to another country and I wanted their last dinner part to be something grand. I called Dillion, upon getting a recommendation from another friend. He was extremely professional and helpful with any questions and concerns I had throughout the process. He suggested food pairings and how best to plate.
Let's not forget the food, the meal was excellent. He came to my home promptly and set to work. As I was preparing the house for my guests I would at times stop, just amazed at the aromas coming from the kitchen. My anticipation was rising. As my guests arrived, they too commented on smells of food cooking, certainly better than anything I've ever made they commented, and they hadn't even eaten anything yet!
When we sat down to the table, Dillion brought out the food. He explained each dish answered questions from the table. The first bite was perfect. The steak, perfectly pink in the center, the sauce tingled with a slight sweetness, the two mixed into a melody of flavor. The rest of the meal followed suit. Afterwards my friends stated it was the best dinner party I had ever hosted. My friends who moved, they still talk about the food, not so much the game I set out to play. Dillion was excellent and I will be hiring him for the next dinner party since he was such a hit. I can't recommend him more!"
