Chef Mariana's reviews
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.

Chef Mariana is fantastic! We celebrated my husband's birthday with a delicious Japanese meal. Chef Mariana's crispy rice sushi pizza, and creative rolls made the night much more special. The meal was superb and my kitchen was left spotless. We want to plan another dinner really soon so we can hire Chef Mariana again!!

I would recommend Mariana to EVERYONE looking for a great Chef experience and would absolutely be hiring her again should I make it back to Austin, TX!
Thanks again Mariana!
