Jesse is a consummate professional. Communication was excellent while planning the menu and he showed up well prepared. The menu was as advertised and Jesse explained each dish. Most importantly, the ingredients were high quality, fresh and cooked to perfection. Highly recommended!

Chef Auset was amazing from the beginning of our interaction to the end of the meal. The menu exceeded our expectations. The presentation was impressive. She explained each course with enthusiasm and professionalism. I would hire her again and recommend to all my friends.

Valerie did an amazing job on a very short notice (I booked 24h in advance only)! She took excellent care of us (expat couple) from point A to point Z and everything was delicious. We had a degustation dinner setup, with some french flavor here and there, it was fantastic. I wish I could attach pictures we took during the diner, everything was perfectly presented and tasted heavenly good (we also loved the spicy notes along the way). I highly recommend her, and am already looking forward to book Christmas and New Year's eve with take a chef, as we won't be able to travel back home this year. K&M

Chef Jesse was the PERFECT addition to our first anniversary in Monterey. He prepared for us a detailed seafood 4 course dinner that he worked with us on to create specifically for our night and even made accommodations for my husbands with his allergies. His quality of food was superb and he truly creates an experience when serving his meals. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
