Chef Chris was exactly what we needed for our work stay! The entire process of booking was simple, seamless, and efficient! Chef Chris has great communication and was able to accommodate our needs for our mid size dinner party of 10 people! We decided to book for our work trip, and luckily for us, he travelled about 3 hours away to meet us at our airbnb! He was able to work with the supplies we currently had, and when we realized we were missing items( oil, booze, etc), he and his assistant (also named Chris :)) ran to the store, and dinner was served at 6 o’clock on the dot! The entire experience of cocktail hour, hors d oeuvres, and dinner was magical. Coming from being surrounded by VERY particular coworkers, everyone was delighted, and raved on and on about their favorite dishes when the experience was completed! Some of our favorite dishes prepared included: Butternut Squash & Ancho Chile Bisque Shooters, Thai Chicken Skewers, and the Espresso Rubbed Filet Mignon yum!! Chris squared left the kitchen spotless, and it was left better than they found it! The kitchen was twinkling! This experience was absolutely one the best, and Chef Chris definitely made sure my coworkers and I felt comfortable and well fed in our home away from home! He’s super friendly, a wonderful cook, and is punctual. Thank you Chef! And we hope to book you again soon! With Gratitude, Chelsea
