Reviews for Round Rock personal chefs

Chef Justin did an amazing job for my fiancé birthday dinner party! This was the first time any of us had a personal chef come cook for us and the experience was everything. The food was absolutely delicious, well portioned, and fair priced! I had to add a few people to the guest list twice and chef Justin has very understanding. He was the talk of the night! Would definitely recommend him for any/all occasions.

Demeatrie and her team helped my fiancé and I celebrate our anniversary from home during COVID. I reached out to her about two and a half weeks before the date and she responded right away. I am so grateful for her! She worked with me to customize the perfect menu and was considerate of our desire to try multiple items while avoiding an over abundance of food— since it was only the two of us. I highly recommend Demeatrie as a personal chef. Not only is she professional and pleasant to work with, but she is also great a great chef. I have been to nice restaurants before, but I have never tasted food as good as hers. If something was meant to be sweet and spicy, you could taste both flavors distinctly, without one over powering the other! Nothing was too sweet or too salty, everything paired perfectly. I really appreciate the cyclical nature of her art as a chef. It was evident that each dish was prepared with the mindfulness of the flavors of the other. I will definitely be scheduling with her again!
