Jennifer was absolutely outstanding. This was our first experience hiring a private chef and I would give an unqualified recommendation to anyone. The food was spectacular, she was engaging but also left us alone. The cleanup was great - it was amazing to host friends and have almost nothing to clean afterwards!
