My husband turned 65 last year during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic so we were not able to properly celebrate his birthday. Now, a year later, I was looking to provide him with an experience, something unique and not easily forgotten. Chef Tony proposed a five course wine pairing southern dinner that in his words “you and your guest would be uniquely happy and blown away with !” He did just that. During our initial conversation, instead of asking me what I wanted he asked me to talk to him about my husband. We talked about his personality, what kinds of food he liked, his openness to trying new food, his favorite color, etc. Next he asked me about myself and any potential guests. His intent was to make it personal and from that conversation he proposed a menu and wine pairing to accommodate our taste, our lifestyle, and our personalities. He even suggested where we should set up, and although I did not initially agree with his recommendation to do it outside on the deck, he turned out to be right. It was the perfect setting for our laid back birthday celebration. Chef Tony arrived early and he brought everything with him right down to flowers and candles. From the charcuterie board (not one of the courses) through each of the five courses, the food was fresh, delicious, and abundant. There were two wines paired with each course. As Chef Tony presented each course he shared with us why the particular wines were chosen and the nuances we could expect on our palates. His wine choices and knowledge were as excellent as his food. Chef Tony is very personable. His charm and conversation added to the experience. As promised, he really did make it an experience that my guest and I were “happy and blown away with”.

I booked Chef Tony for my fiancé’s birthday dinner, for two. The experience was everything I imagined. The food was delicious and he was able to marry each course with the perfect wine. Chef Tony also was a great host, he lead conversations keeping us laughing and celebrating through the night. I look forward to having Chef Tony cater another event in the future and would recommend him to anyone looking for personal Chef services.

Reviews from a wine tasting and dinner pairing event that was planned for a ladies retreat among four close friends: Chef Tony is an amazing talent. It is beyond me how he was able to perfectly and seamlessly juggle the preparation of everything, socialize with and educate the group, wine and dine us, and clean up everything afterwards. He is structured, yet flexible and adaptable. He made the process look effortless; it is clear this is his God-given talent and passion. It was a priceless and memorable experience. Thank you Chef Tony for sharing your blessings of knowledge, skills, and expertise as a Chef and Sommelier - bravo! ~BS A 6+ hour interactive delicious tasting journey through six courses of food and 10 wines. Worked with Chef to help craft the journey where he exhibited the utmost professionalism, expertise, and was accommodating to dietary needs and preferences so no one missed a step in the journey. Don’t overthink it, book Chef Tony. ~LT Chef Tony’s food and wine experience was one of a kind. His food was so good I packed it up and shared it with my family! Looking forward for the next Chef Tony food and wine experience. ~AL Our experience with Chef Tony was remarkable. His attention to every detail of our experience was bar none; exceptional! ~DT
