Better late than never ~
This review is long, long overdue and because of that Iâll start off by apologizing to one of the Chef Tye and his Sou Chef Denise. I had the extreme pleasure of doing business with Chef Tye back in October 2014 by taking a chance and booking him thru the Thumbtack app and Iâm so thankful that I did.
I was planning a girls weekend trip for three to the Temecula wine country and was in desperate need of a chef to prepare a special birthday celebration dinner. Iâm in Northern CA, and just didnât have access to a chef in the Temecula area. After conducting several internet searches and coming up empty handed I decided to try Thumbtack. After keying in the service type, meal preference and budget I hit the submit button and patiently awaited feedback from participating chefs. Voilaâ. I received several replies within the 1st hour. After a few back and forth emails via Thumbtack , several great menu selections and a price that just couldnât be beat, I decided right then and there to hire Chef Tye. Iâve got to tell you, he was the perfect Man for the job. Did I mention heâs great eye candy. (Ladies tip)
After hashing out all of the details; exchanging contact information, final menu selections, contract and financial obligations etcâ¦ it was on. I was so excited to surprise my girlfriends with Chef Tye. I knew that after speaking with him several times, he was going to ensure the meal was going to be absolutely perfect. During the entire process Chef Tye was extremely professional and through. He kept me in the loop at all times, made excellent suggestions when it came to dishes ZI wanted to have served , or thought I wanted to have served. When he arrived at the rental home, Chef had everything prepped and ready to go for our gourmet birthday dinner. He even travel with his own Sou Chef, who also does double duty as his beautiful mother, Denise. These two are down to earth caring people. I donât typically do well with strangers, Iâm usually stand-offish, but these two were awesome. We all felt as if they were part of our extended family.
The dinner surpassed our expectations and I would highly recommend Chef Tye for your next event. You wonât be disappointed. My ,mouth actually started having flashbacks as I started to recall that nights menu. 1st Course Cream of Artichoke Soup ,Served With Roasted Corn, and Butter Poached Lobster Garnished With Chives
2nd Course Pan Seared Sea Scallops Layered on Sun Dried Tomato Risotto Topped With a Cashew Compound Butter
3rd Course Grilled 6oz Petite Filet Served With Cauliflower Gratin, Crunchy Pancetta Green Bean,
Finished With a Lobster Tail Scampi
Chef Tye Bellâs CrÃ¨me Bruleâ Served With Fresh Whipped Cream and Berries
Chef Tye came in and did his thing. We had dinner outside on the porch that over looked the vineyards. The weather and company âperfectâ . We were we served each course and Chef Tye let us know what we were about to devour and how it was prepared. By the nights end the kitchen was spotless, there was absolutely no signs of it even being used. My girlfriends and I were happy, a lil tipsy off the wine and satisfyingly full from our delicious meal. Iâd definitely recommend Chef Tye and will certainly hire him again.
