Personal chef's testemonials from Yelp

“Personal Chef Peter was easy to reach, responsive and reliable. Every course was outstanding, culminating in the Osso Buco, which was a total knockout! One guest remarked that the scallops appetizer (seared & served with pea purée) was better than the scallops at Marche Moderne.”

Amy C., Yelp

“Chef Peter was on time extremely efficient, professional and the food was absolutely amazing! My entire family was blown away with every aspect of the meal. We can not wait to hire him again and I highly recommend him.”

Allison W., Yelp

“Based on the meal that Personal Chef Peter prepared for my guests at my house, his operation is going to become a master chef spectacular. His presentation skill, taste, variety, and other-county adventure menu items are great. Dishes like one sees in the finest restaurants but in your home.”

Bruce C., Yelp
