"I have never used the services of a personal chef and honestly had no idea how to go about selecting a menu, pairing wines, etc. I received a call from Chef Eric right after posting my event on this site. While I felt an instant rapport with Eric, I can't imagine that everyone he contacts doesn't feel the same thing. He is just extremely personable, quite helpful, and knows his business. He instantly put me at ease, created a menu, and gave me the right price. We spoke several more times before the event, and he was always extremely responsive and eager to make the night worry free for me (more of a blessing than he could have imagined!). He arrived promptly, and after a brief tour of the kitchen got to work immediately. In about 15 minutes, the house began to smell amazing. After realizing that I had a productive garden, he even modified the original menu to incorporate some fresh herbs and tomatoes from the garden into one of the appetizers. He charmed our guests, politely but briefly described each dish, served, and left the kitchen cleaner than he found it. My only concern is that he is going to become so popular that I may never get on his schedule again. He is wonderful and I can't recommend his company highly enough. I feel confident in promising that you won't be disappointed. We can't wait to have him back."
