Barna is an amazing chef. Very creative. Brings the 3 starred Michelin restaurant experience home.Feb 12, 2020
Chef Lazar is extraordinary! My husband and I were privileged to attend a dinner he created at a friend’s house. The menu was creative and absolutely delicious - from start to finish. Added plus: he is a joy to work with, explaining the dishes he has prepared and making the entire experience interesting, relaxing, and unique. Highly recommended!Feb 8, 2020

Barna presented us with a superb dinner that was unique in its preparation, ingredients and presentation. He was outgoing, accommodating and informative.Feb 4, 2020
First class production of a dinner for six from start to finish. Food was delicious and beautifully presented. He left my kitchen cleaner then when he started. Would definitely hire him again to cook either Hungarian inspired dishes----as he did this time---or other cuisine of which he is adept.Feb 4, 2020
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I’m flexible when it comes to pricing. It all comes down to who’s doing the shopping, what scale/quality of food is desired, how far the travel is, how long of a session/dinner we’re agreeing on. One thing is guaranteed: your palate (and your guests’) will be grateful for choosing me! :)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to do a little bit of introduction, getting to know each other on a basic level, to clarify expectations in order to have a wholesome experience. After that I will give you the option of choosing from a pre-created menu/selection of dishes or techniques to learn, OR If you like I’ll take care of everything for You and all you have to do is confirm!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been cooking since i was a kid. My first cooking job was at the age of 19, since then, I’ve been working myself up in numerous restaurants, pubs, cruise ships. Always one step up, with the most recent employment being in one of the country’s most prestigious fine-dining establishments, the Michelin 2-starred avant-garde restaurant Minibar in Washington DC. Cooking delicious meals, fermenting and curing all kinds of ingredients and baking sourdough bread at home is also a primary hobby of mine that my wife, friends and family have been enjoying throughout the years. This time has not only taught me an enormous amount about cooking, but has gotten me closer to food I could have ever imagined.
