"Well, this is not the case with Private Chefs. Private Chefs exceeds expectations. From our first contact to the perfect ending-our experience was nothing but amazing. After our initial contact, we talked and decided on a menu. I looked at some he had sent me, and honestly, it was so hard to choose. The fact of the matter is, Chef Kelly told me he would make anything I wanted. The evening I was planning was a 60TH birthday celebration for my husband. Ironically, I did not act on my plan until 2 days before his birthday. That made no difference to Chef Kelly. He delivered on everything promised, even on this short notice. Price per person was very reasonable and the only additional cost was for the groceries purchased. He did everything-from the shopping to preparing to cooking to serving to cleaning. We started with shrimp cocktail with the most delicious cocktail sauce I have ever tasted. Seriously. Next was Champagne Poached Lobster Caesar Salad-perfection. We all had a fork tender filet with the Chefs special sauce. Finished it all off with made from scratch Strawberry Cheesecake. I just do not have the words to describe how fantastic EVERTHING was. It was such a luxury having a world class, made to order dinner (as good or better than any restaurant) in our own home. There is nothing I can buy for my husband, but I know he will never forget this evening. If you are thinking of doing something like this for 2 or a large group of people, I encourage to just call Chef Kelly. He loves what he does, and I believe the passion he has for his work is a big part of the reason he does it all so well. You will not be disappointed. Thank you, Chef Kelly for the extraordinary celebration! I will see you again."
