We had a group of 8 whom have never had an experience quite like Chef Lemar. From the welcom cocktail to the smoked tiramisu and 4 courses in between. Chef and his wife really took care of us. I am very impressed with the details, he explained seasonings, sauces, and his inspirations. I stole the show within my friend group with this experience. Thank you again Chef!

Overall, Perfect! I picked Chef Lemar first off due to his great reviews and additional he responded quickly vs other companies. Communication between us we easy and productive. He was able to provide a menu for a four course meal. I made one adjustment for a chocolate dessert but everything else sounded amazing! He and his wife were on time, setup and started to cook. By time we all sat down, it was time to eat. The food, every dish was not only beautifully plated but was so good I wanted to lick the plate clean. All 8 guest agree as all you heard was Mmmmmmm. Some people even took pictures of there plates! My wife who this was for (birthday) was completely unaware but so amazed by this and we will have Chef back in the future!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!

Lamar with Amalie did an amazing job prepare dinner for our family on Dec. 30th to celebrate my husband's retirement. We had a delicious shrimp appetizer, salad, lamb shank and chocolate souffle for dessert. I would definitely recommend Lamar to prepare you a delicious and beautiful meal!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Nothing complicated. Cost of ingredients+cost of my time(reasonable)+ cost of any necessary equipment+ tax= your price. Any gratuity is optional.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I frequent food blogs daily, i subscribe to various food magazines, and at night watch cooking shows...so i'd say my time is well spent keeping relevant.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    At an early age food became my calling. I took all of my mother's cookbooks and cooked through them. Working in a professional kitchen, one often times looses that personal interaction and customer appreciation for YOUR food. So i do this to get closer to my craft and the people who enjoy it!
