I called Elena for an event to celebrate my wife's birthday and everything went great! 100% success!
I worked with Alex to pick a menu that would be suitable for kicking off a bachelor party weekend for a bunch of young American men who were experiencing Mexico City for the first time. We had a few vegetarians in our party and Alex was quick to accommodate their dietary needs. He and his two assistants were punctual and very professional. I would not hesitate to recommend them again.
The meal served and the menu plan were slightly different, but we talked about this in advance. She asked for the liberty to bring the freshest ingredients and prepared a wonderful meal. the food was served on schedule and was delicious. It would have been nice for her to arrive earlier to ensure the wine was chilled to the correct temperature. However, the wine pairing selections she made were fantastic.
Really impressed with Take a Chef and our designated chef. Chef Susa cooked a dinner, a lunch, and 3 breakfasts and all our meals were fantastic. She made the people with the gluten allergy and the vegetarian feel very well taken care of while not sacrificing anything for the other members of the group. I would hire Take a Chef and Chef Susa again for sure.
At first it was a bit strange to have a stranger in our kitchen, but we soon connected with Toni and the both the dinner and evening were incredible. The food was spectacular, especially the risotto…
What a treat to enjoy Leo's cooking! We'll be repeating the evening for sure.
We were not sure at first if having a chef at home would be uncomfortable, but on the contrary, Elena was super discreet and attentive from the get go. A great experience.
