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…
Chef David provided an excellent meal for a small dinner party my boss was hosting. Received many wonderful comments today for putting together such a wonderful evening, but it is all due to Chef David!
Philippe is extremely professional and experienced. His food was amazing with authentic products. Highly recommended!
The best experience with food I've had in 2016. The Chef spent 6 hours at home to make everything a success.
Friday night chef Markus Pössenberger from www.takeachef.com prepared an an excellent 4 course Italian meal for 4 people. He arrived at 3:30pm and began preparing the meal which was served at 1830 pm as requested. My guests arrived unexpectedly early and chef Markus prepared pita crackers with dip as an extra for us to munch on as we sipped wine and talked. The meal was delicious, it consisted of an appetizer of flamed antipasti and Italian cold cuts, a starter of homemade truffled ravioli with Gorgonzola sauce. The main course consisted of tender stripes of bison meat on white wine risotto... the dessert was a savory tiramisu. All the food was well balanced beautifully presented and mouthwatering. Everyone enjoyed the meal and chef Markus. He was extremely personable, took time to explain each service and answered all our questions concerning the various courses. He cleaned up all the dishes and pots and pans before he left at 9:30. Pm. It was my first time using take a chef it was an easy to navigate website I received two menu options within a few hours and selected chef Markus proposal. If you want an at home chef experience takeachef is an excellent choice. I cannot speak for their other chefs but I can garante that you will have a great evening if you choose Chef Markus. Enjoy Nadina
I wanted to surprise my guests and I certainly did. The mushroom risotto and truffle was spectacular.

Darren prepared an absolute delicious menu for a birthday celebration in our home. The food was amazing we really enjoyed every course. Darren was chatty, friendly, and an absolute professional. It was a pleasure to have him prepare our meal We have 4 children under 4 in our family and going to a restaurant is challenging and stressful. However take a chef brought the dining experience to our home where everyone was relaxed and the food was top class. We would highly recommend Darren Kennedy.
It was our first time using the service and we weren't sure what to expect, but when Elena brought the food to the table there were absolutely no words to describe how wonderful it was! Absolutely unique.
