Chef Angelina's reviews

Chef Angie was great! Besides the amazing food, she put a lot of care to reading the room. She gave us our privacy while my boyfriend was assessing the idea of another person in our home the conversing when he started to open up and learned we were more social. Thank you Chef Angie for making my boyfriend’s birthday experience an incredible one!

Chef Angelina and Claire are an amazing dynamic duo. Kind, fun, and incredibly professional, they deliver more than great culinary creations — a complete, memorable experience. My friends and I are still enjoying the tasty leftovers! Highly recommend.

Angie did an amazing job with a French style dinner for my wife’s birthday. She was punctual, friendly, and cleaned the kitchen as if it were her own. The food was delicious, unique, and had a great presentation. We would definitely use Take a Chef and would love to work with Angie again in the future. Thank you!
