About this pro
Zacki worked closely to plan and incorporate my ideas for a very special brunch. She and her staff managed everything before, during and after the event. The food was delicious.Aug 12, 2018Zacki M.'s reply
Thank you Marianne, We enjoyed celebrating your birthday, too...and that so many were from UNC and knew the fight song!
Chef Zacki worked with me through several changes to get to a final menu that accommodated all the various likes and dislikes of 13 guests... - no small feat! The meal was enjoyed immensely by all who attended. The variety and quality of the appetizers were particularly impressive. The Coq au Vin w/wide noodles entree was delicious and filling. ...And everyone loved the dessert - not a crumb was left behind, despite the generous portions of entree everyone had just consumed.Jan 8, 2018VerifiedZacki M.'s reply
What a delight it was to be with the Kenny family. The cool part was that the guy business associates play a board game with David called Twilight Imporium that can take up to 12 hours to complete. They consummed a bunch of junk food, but never the less gobbled down our more sophisticated dinner where the winning dessert was Bill Neal's famous persimmon pudding. (Persimmons are only available a short season.) David's wife and son jumped in to assist in making dinner and was so impressed with the son that I am taking him on as an apprentice. Win-win for all!
We loved our dinner with Zacki. Her food was amazing and she was great to talk to. She was very responsive in the planning stages and we came up with the best meal for my mother in laws birthday. It made for a great night that we will never forget!Dec 30, 2017VerifiedZacki M.'s reply
What a fun family this was and so appreciative...and Laura, the mom who had never had anyone else cook in the kitchen, so she was gracious about that...Larry, Dad had been with the UNC Athletic Dept. a long time and knew all my ole coaches from cheerleading days, so this was fun for me, too!
Working with Zacki was a pleasure! She works with excellence, creativity, and attention to the details. Also, she was able to accommodate a myriad of dietary restrictions for guests attending my dinner party. The food was delicious and her service was top-notch!Apr 10, 2018Verified
Food, service and professionalism was five star plus! Our guest loved everything!Apr 6, 2018Verified
