Chef Kaz is an amazing chef. For a family event celebrating the graduation of my son, Chef Kaz created a strolling lunch buffet for 30 guests consisting of family members and friends. There was something delicious for everyone ranging in ages 3 to 80. He prepped, cooked, displayed, replenished, and most importantly, cleaned up after the event. The presentation was outstanding. Everyone was satisfied and continues to talk about the fun we had. Chef Kaz was able to focus on his craft without being distracted by the activities of the photographer, kids playing, etc. He is professional and easy to work with. Satisfied and will use him again customer, BelindaSep 21, 2018
