Chef Jean-Luc's reviews
Jean-luc was amazing! He showed up on time and with everything he needed. He was very kind and talkative, but also great at multitasking! He was glad to share his professional background and tell us about his experience, and also shared with us some of the things he really enjoys cooking and the fact that he likes to use local ingredients as much as possible. The food was delicious from start to finish, and I'd recommend him to anyone (and hire him again myself!). Thank you, Jean-luc!

Jean-Luc is awesome! We were celebrating my wife's 50th birthday, Jean-Luc prepared an amazing four course dinner for twelve including a complete separate meal for two vegan friends. He arrived a little over an hour before dinner, and jumped right in finishing the courses. He shared a brief description of the course, and allowed us to enjoy. The overall meal was 2+ hours and I cant wait to have him back. The menu for the night is below including the wine pairings.
1) Fresh tuna tartare tartine with avocados on a rustic bread topped micros greens
1a) Home made Hummus with vegetables crudités and olives
Wine suggestion: conundrum white blend
2) Pan seared shrimps Provençal on soft herbs and parmesan polenta

Chef Jean-Luc cooked for my family for our 20th wedding anniversary celebration. Everything was excellent - from the menu selection at the start, to the beautiful and delicious courses, to the interesting stories from his career. His attention to every detail was impeccable. It was a night to remember!
