The overall experience was exceptional -- every event throughout the evening was a highlight. The three courses for our dinner were not only delicious -- but presented wonderfully on the plates and served professionally. Chef Jaime is a true professional.
At the end of the night I felt my kitchen was left in a cleaner and neater state than prior to the Chef's arrival.
Having a Chef cook our meal in our own kitchen somehow seemed to transport us to "another world" with no cares or worries. We had a wonderful night.

We very much enjoyed our dinner adventure. Chef Boyan is very pleasant, genuine and professional. we had an outstanding experience! it was more than we expected. many thanks, Sonia and Boyan. we hope to see you both in Niagara Falls soon.

 Taste --- it was fantastic!! We enjoyed every minute that he prepared the meals. He was professional, informative, funny, very knowledgeable and very accommodating. His service and presentation was amazing. We had a wonderful experience and would definitely recommend to family and friends (I already have).

"We were the lucky recipients of a gift certificate from two of our children, and decided to make it even better by asking another couple to join us for dinner.  Chef Ajeen  arrived in plenty of time on the appointed day at our home, bringing his bags of goodies, and for the next four hours or so he chopped and created in our kitchen providing us with a delicious dinner of appetisers, amuse bouche and entree.  He was friendly and engaging and we considered ourselves very fortunate that he was our chef for the evening.  This was a new adventure for us, and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and the wonderful meal that was made for us."Janette Armour, Aurora, ON
