Food was delicious!! Best potato soup I’ve had! Definitely recommend Chef Rene, and will book her again in the future! She was extremely accommodating and kind! Every bite was great!

Super Fun Birthday Experience

Renee made my wife’s birthday a wonderful and memorable experience. The food was fantastic, but Renee herself was even better. She was a fun entertainer and got all of us involved in the experience of cooking the dinner. It was like we were all part of an impromptu play. She made my wife the sous chef, complete with hat and apron and also taught her a lot of secrets to cooking, prepping and seasoning. We highly recommend Renee and would love to do this again soon!

Amazing experience!

Top 3 meals I’ve ever had! Renee was detailed in every thing she did and there wasn’t one course that we weren’t completely impressed with! Will definitely use her again!

You pay a fixed price per guest based on your menu, plus a small, all-inclusive booking fee to our platform. You’ll be able to see exactly what you’re paying when you make a booking. No hidden costs, ever.
