“The quality of the food was amazing, very fresh, locally sourced, on par with any 1-2 star Michelin venue. Plus, the chefs were SO nice and engaging, eager to teach our family about cooking and the area. Also note that their prices are significantly better than other competitor personal chefs. I HIGHLY recommend!!!”
