Chef Cory's reviews

4.7/ 5

Chef Cory was awesome. I hired him to surprise my parents with dinner as a gift. He tailored the menu for their tastes and was careful with my Dad’s food allergies. When Chef Cory arrived he was personable and professional, sharing stories that improved the experience. My parents were very pleased. They said that the food and overall experience were incredible. We would definitely hire Chef Cory again.

Chef Cory was wonderful. I hired him to surprise my boyfriend with an at-home birthday dinner and it was simply perfect. He recommended some fantastic wines, he was nice, punctual, entertaining, and the food was beyond great. He left my kitchen spotless and took the time to share how he came up with and cooked each dish. I would hire him again a thousand times!
