Compliments To The Chef

yelp 5 star.jpg

"We had a wonderful meal with Chef Steven!

From the very beginning, he was great at communicating via email.  I was planning a bachelorette party for 12 girls and wanted to do a special dinner at the house one night. We definitely made the right call with Chef Steven! He was so easy-going when it came to menu selection, listened to the few dietary restrictions we had, and was super personable and fun too! He had a beautiful setup with the menu printed for us and some decor/flowers, and the buffet-style meal was perfect for our informal gathering.  His cocktails were fabulous too AND he even cleaned up everything at the end! I would highly recommend Chef Steven to any group traveling to Scottsdale.

Thank you Chef!!!" ​

Chef Steven is the man! he came to our airbnb and cooked dinner for 7 of us and we couldn't have been happier, fuller, and more satisfied. Responsive from before we booked, punctual, polite, and left our kitchen even cleaner than when he arrived. oh and the FOOD WAS AMAZING! he accommodated our gluten-free guest with ease, using gluten-free breadcrumbs for meatballs, and providing gluten free substitutes for dishes that had gluten. he brought an incredible portable spice rack with some really cool spices, and his own knives and tools which were really cool. he delivered exactly what we ordered and his dinner was the highlight of everyone's trip. just an absolute win all around - he was a pleasure to have at our home. If you're on the fence about hiring him, just do it, you will not be disappointed. truly an unforgettable and special night -- not a bad word to say about this talented and terrific chef. thank you again, chef, we'll be talking about you for a long time!

Chef Steven treated us to a culinary experience like no other. We had a brunch set up for a couples trip in Scottsdale, and we are so glad we did. From the planning process, to the execution, and finally to flavor- Steven knocked it out of the park each step of the way. Extremely professional, super knowledgeable, incredibly well rounded, and just a fun person to be around. The food was incredible, completely custom catered to our needs. Cannot wait for our next experience.

My daughters gave me the wonderful gift of a formal dinner for two prepared in my home by Chef Steven. From beginning to end, the experience was exceptional. Chef Steven called me in advance to talk about the evening and my preferences, then followed up with email communications as we zeroed in on the final menu. In every area he was professional, organized, and personable: communications, timely arrival, set-up, prep, and clean-up. He brought all his own tools, including his top-quality spices, each imported from their country of origin. But, of course, the most important part of having a personal chef is the food. Let me say that everything Chef Steven served was AMAZING in both flavor and presentation. My very favorite was the Caribbean Spiny Lobster Crostini appetizer. I could have made a meal of that alone and been perfectly happy. But there was so much more, each course truly splendid in both quality and presentation. He brought his assistant April, and they were both easy-going, friendly, and accommodating. It was a pleasure having them in my home. When they departed, my kitchen was absolutely spotless. Chef Steven left all the leftovers for us, which my husband and I gleefully devoured the next day. I would highly recommend him for any event.

"I hired Chef Steven to cook for my wife and I as a surprise for her birthday, and boy, were we blown away! We were hesitant to go out to a restaurant given the ongoing pandemic, and I felt this would be a great way to have a nice and safe meal. Chef Steven was really easy to communicate with and responsive. He had no problems accommodating our dietary restrictions. The menu he created for us was on-point, interesting, and delicious. He arrived on time and well-prepared. My wife was so surprised and excited for this meal! All the dishes were executed well and plated perfectly. We loved hearing about his travels, his past experiences, and his passion for cooking. We also really loved his spice kit! I highly recommend him for any event, big or small! Thanks again, Chef Steven, for a memorable evening!"

"Chef Steven, Thanks for all of your help, and for making the evening a success!

The food was wonderful, and everything was completed in a very professional manner.  Thanks again!"

NATHAN D. | Portland, OR | Dinner Party 

"Hands down would hire him again if we ever go back to AZ! He was very responsive and professional throughout the whole planning of the event. He is very personable and friendly which makes it easy for a stranger to come into your house and cook for you. Not to mention his dishes were amazing and any leftovers were devoured the next morning.

Thank you for a memorable experience!
