We contracted Take a Chef for our parents' 50th wedding anniversary since their original party was postponed due to Covid. Chef Alvarez's proposal sounded perfect for them and he was very easy to work with. The report from our parents was that he cooked with unique ingredients and explained how he was preparing each course. They absolutely loved the entire experience. We were thrilled to have provided such an interesting experience for their celebration that was not only delicious, but also very memorable.

Chef Shawn exceeded all of my expectations! Our dinner was a birthday surprise, so there was much riding on Shawn’s preparation and delivery. He was incredibly flexible and thoughtful with his menu, and every course was delicious. We had a few things that were new to us, that were just amazing. We typically always go out for a very nice dinner, especially for birthdays, however since we could not this year, Chef Shawn brought that dinner to us. We would certainly hire him again!
