Tony was headed and shoulders above what we could have expected. This was our first ever with an home personal chef. It was like having dinner prepared for you from a friend you haven't seen in a while and then when you see them, you wish you hung out more. Tony is a Gentleman, and a genuine good person. To the the food: We could have choose to sit back watch some TV, sit by the the fire Etc. and let Tony do his thing but we choose to watch the master Chef and take mental notes. Tony was very good at giving pointers to my wife on cooking, knife technique, ingredients etc. While Tony also answered my 101 questions about everything but cooking. The Food was excellent. Being as it was our first time we had a chef we had Tony choose dishes for us, we could have adjusted if we preferred. It was nice to have a spin on some traditional dishes and some we would not really ever cook our selves. BTW, My wife cooks every night so we are familiar with home cooked meals. To the Wine, by the GLOBAL WINE CHEF : My wife and I occasionally drink wine. This really is the super specialty of Tony. I have never had wine paired with food that made the wine and food taste so good together and on their own. I simply just don't know But my pallet and taste buds get it. Either crisp and clean in some areas and mellow and harmonizing in others. This was a true treat for us. This is not something we could do for ourselves or get at a restaurant. We give the experience, because for us that is what it was a 10 out of 10. What you get the money is great, certainly more than you pay for in my opinion. Tony definitely gets a sense of the people and weather you choose to be away from the kitchen and relax or right with him taking notes hes happy either way.
Well versed in food and Especially wine
Thanks again Tony
A true pleasure
