Compliments To The Chef

Prime Filet  - Cooking with Chef Steven.jpg

"I hired him for my best friend's bridal shower weekend. He came early and prepared with everything. We just sat back, relaxed, and had a great night.

Everything smelled amazing we could not wait to eat!

The experience was above and beyond our expectations and I am so happy to hire him for a special night for my best friend.

Thank you, Chef Steven!

Can't wait to book a cooking class!"

"We hired Chef Steven for my elopement

and it was the best decision!

He was easy to talk to, very responsive, and accommodating to our needs. When we got back to the Airbnb, he already had the appetizers ready to go. The food was beyond delicious!!!! Ingredients were the best quality. Everything fresh. Everything is done from scratch in front of you. After he was done, the kitchen was spotless."
