Chef Mariana's reviews

Mariana was easy to work with and provided a great experience for our group. The whole process from menu prep, guest details, and day of event execution was done extremely well. I highly would highly recommend her. Thanks chef!

Chef Mariana was absolutely amazing! We could not stop talking about how sweet she was and how delicious the food was, as well as the gorgeous presentation! I can't wait to order and use Take A Chef Services again!

Chef Mariana was an absolute treasure during our celebration dinner. She had a quick response time, worked with me on what we were going for, offered suggestions while she also listened to what we actually wanted. I will be hiring Chef Mariana for any further dinner parties, and I would recommend you do the same.
