My first in home dining experience with Terique Epps(Personal/Private Chef) exceeded expectations. Mr. Epps was very good with details as he patiently and thoroughly assisted me in planning to host a private dinner for two. Mr. Epps ease, comfort level and compatibility for working with two people that he just met was exceptional. The atmosphere set by Mr. Epps while preparing the food was relaxing, inviting, informative and interactive. The confidence demonstrated by Mr. Epps in preparing the food was like poetry in motion. From the soup, salad, to the main course and the desert every bite taken was delicious and satisfying to the palate. The lamb chops and shrimp were succulent to the taste. The bread pudding topped with a home made glazed pecan sauce was the best that I have eaten. The serving portions were filling and satisfying. Not only did Mr. Epps successfully prepare the meal in my home and kitchen that was new to him; he also left the kitchen clean, dishes washed and everything in place. This was my first private dinner experience but it will not be my last. Personal Chef Terique Epps helped to make it one of the most memorable, enjoyable, fun, enchanting, delightfully pleasing and satisfying experiences that my guest and I have had. I look forward to hosting other private dinners coordinated, planned and prepared by Mr. Terique Epps.Oct 25, 2018VerifiedEpps Bistro's reply
Thank you so much Darnell! I truly enjoyed cooking for you. Im looking forward to our next event!
Probably one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had with working with a personal / executive type chef. On time, courteous, and very knowledgeable / attentive to my concerns. I would definitely recommend and plan to use again in the near future.Jul 21, 2018Epps Bistro's reply

Working with Terique was so easy! He was the only in home chef I found that had a menu to choose from and that was just what I needed. Showed up at the event right on time, food quality was excellent, cleaned everything up and price was on par with everything else. All the food was incredible! Highly recommend!Nov 14, 2018Verified
Chef Epps has been nothing but professional since I’ve hired him. Before hiring him I didn’t know what to expect taste wise, but his food has been second to none. Definitely satisfied with my hire.Nov 11, 2018Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I will prepare a customized menu with affordable pricing for our services. I do provide discounts for repeat customers.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We establish a meeting to discuss the menu for the client and work out a budget for the event. After the menu and the budget is agreed upon we get to work!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have traveled all over the world (Chile, Thiland, Italy, Greece, France, and Africa) for profesional development. Every year I travel to a different parts of the world to cook with local chefs. I have a deep and insatiable desire to always learn more and try new things which I feel keeps my menus fresh, varied and never boring.
