I hired Chef Plum as a personal chef for a one time dinner for two. He was extremely easy to work with. He has a wonderful personality and took the time to explain all of the different dishes as he prepared them. The food was beyond delicious. We both agreed it was one of the best meals we ever had. I look forward to working with Chef Plum again in the near future.

I can't say enough about Chef Kev. Far and above anything we expected. In the middle of this pandemic I wanted to celebrate my wife's birthday at home in a special way. I tried a few other Chefs that didn't work out. Coming down to the last day I tried my luck with Chef Kev. He responded within an hour. We were able to put together the project in less then 2hrs. The menu fit the vision perfectly, food was amazing, plating immaculate and service all the way kick ass. If you want a Personal/ Private Chef that's going to take fine dining to an engaging delicious experience then Chef Kev is who you need. Know that he's a Chef first who loves his craft with a totally fun personality and a gift in hospitality. You're looking for an Executive Chef for your event? Stop here. The only thing I was upset with is why didn't I make him my first choice!
