Reviews for Warwick personal chefs
Thumbtack Customer
Josef Antinucci is a personal chef. Although I love to cook and am a good cook, I have back problems that can make it hard for me to stand for long periods of time. A personal chef seemed the answer. He does the shopping, prep and cooking and delivers finished meals once a week. His portions are quite large and two portions of three different meals carries my husband and me five or six days. Chef Joseph is really dependable. No matter what the weather conditions, he delivered, even if he had to tromp through fifteen inches of snow, which happened several times. There were a couple of days in Feb. when we didn't get mail, but we always got our dinners. We are still learning the chef's cooking style. In general my husband and I are pleased with his service, although we have learned that he tends to use sugar in his cooking. Since I am diabetic, I tend not to order dishes that seem like they will be sweet, rather than savory. There is usually enough variety that we are able to match our taste preferences quite well. Chef Josef is a very thoughtful, kind man. When a blizzard was in the offing, he offered to go out and buy batteries and anything else we might need. All in all, a great find.
