Eloisa was nothing short of amazing! I was pretty hesitant on having someone in my home but she fit right in. She was very kind, very engaging and we could not have asked for anyone better! I loved her personality and story. From the time I spoke with her, to the moment she entered my home she was so kind and professional. Her food was absolutely incredible! Each flavor and dish was amazing! This was a great experience having her cook for us and I wish I could do it all over again! Thank you Eloisa!
