Chef Val and her team are top-notch. This was my first experience hiring a private chef and I was not disappointed. Chef Val was tasked with creating a menu for a Surprise 50th Birthday party for ten people.
Passed items: Seared Duck on Cornbread Waffle with Sugarcane Mustard and Brie & Fig Flatbread with Toasted Almonds.
Starter: Cane Fields Salad- Baby Greens with Satsuma Supremes, Spiced Pecans, Feta Cheese, and Sugarcane Vinaigrette. Entrée: choices: Seafood Stuffed Redfish Roulade, Lemon Beurre Blanc, Sautéed Green Beans, AND Petite Filet Mignon, Mushroom Demi-Glace, Parmesan & Black Pepper Risotto, Roasted Brussels Sprouts- Dessert: Bananas Foster.
We had some folks that did not eat beef or pork and Chef Val's menu was able to make everyone happy and stay on the price per person plan.
Also, Chef Val's team was able to help me with the table setting and selecting the appropriate wine glasses for the selected wine pairings.
The food was delicious, to say the least. Everything was timed perfectly. The kitchen was immaculate. The leftovers perfectly packaged and left in the refrigerator. Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to thank her and her team before they left.
A miscommunication almost caused me to miss out on an opportunity to work with Chef Val. Make sure to respond to correspondence clearly and ahead of any deadlines. :0)
Chef Val and her team were the biggest part of what made the surprise birthday party the success that it was. My guests couldn't stop raving about the food.
Many thanks to Chef Val and her team. Y'all Rock!
