We had such a wonderful experience with Chef Sylvie. We hired her to prepare our family's Thanksgiving dinner and she is so warm and friendly, she felt like part of the family almost immediately. She was super responsive to any questions, arrived early on the day of, and stayed for the duration of the meal to serve and clean. Sylvie and her husband are lovely people and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
