What do you enjoy about the work you do?

" Chef Andres was fantastic. We enjoyed his innovative small plate menu and the delicious food that he created. He and his staff were attentive to our needs and helped to make our dinner party special and care-free for us and our guests. We would definitely consider using him again. " - ADAM M. Los Angeles, CA " We had Chef Dangond cook for an event at our house and I can say it was absolutely fantastic. He was extremely flexible with the menu in order to accommodate my guests dietary restrictions and worked diligently to ensure we would have the best meal possible. On the day of the event he showed up on time, was flexible with the service time and left my kitchen spotless! I definitely plan on using him again for any future events. " - RYAN H. Costa Mesa, CA " The entire experience was fantastic. Chef Andres got to our place exactly on-time, got setup quickly, dinner was served on-time as well. Everything tasted great and was exactly what we had expected. Chef Andres is a great host too. He was pleasant to talk too as well. I would STRONGLY recommend him to all my friends and to anyone thats looking for a great dining experience. " - JACK S. Beverly Hills, CA " Andres prepared and served a fabulous sit-down dinner for eight of us last night. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. He was professional, no request too small, and the food was delicious. He had to juggle last minute dietary requirements (gluten-free, vegetarian, sugar-free and lactose intolerance) and he did it skillfully and deliciously. He is very calm and quiet, and very sensitive to the guests conversations, and never interrupting to take center stage. A difficult salmon dish was served beautifully and the white chocolate soup dessert was awesome. And all this within a budget we had pre-set. I found the whole experience relaxing and worth every penny. We will definitely be using Andres again. Next time, I want to turn him loose on his native Colombian menu, and see how that goes. I'm sure it will be wonderful. Thank you, Andres, for sharing your talents with us. My guests were astonished by how easy Andres made everything seem. Good show! " - GABRIELLE D. Malibu, CA

    I 1st hired Chef Dangond for a private dinner with some colleagues at my place and was so amazed by his talent that decided to hire him again, but as my private cooking instructor, I needed to learn how he cooks! Chef Dangond is my #1 reference for the culinary world and would instantly and blindly recommend him to anyone.

    My profession is to review Chefs and find cuisine that excites me. I hired Chef Dangond for a private dinner and gave him creative freedom (always my test). His menu was astounding, delicious, sexy, and uncompromising. I would refer him to anyone. His devotion and passion for the cuisine he creates is apparent in every bite. And I continue to work with him now for Events, private dinners, and tastings. He's a rarity!

    In one word.. Amazing. He is a great person with an amazing talent . You will not regret hiring or training with Andres. Only few chefs can combine so many cultures in a plate without altering the unique flavours of each exquisite ingredient he uses.. Simply amazing and mouth watering. Five stars.
