“Ross helped us with an annual Christmas party where he cooked 9 lobsters (perfectly) and also served AMAZING appetizers. He is friendly, charismatic and has fun with the guests. At the same time, he times his presence perfectly as not to upset the fellowship of the party guests. I would definitely hire him again and would encourage anyone who is thinking of having a party, dinner, or get together to do the same! You HAVE to try his bacon-wrapped chicken bites!” Mary L.

“This was a lot of fun as a family gathering. Chef Ross really takes time to explain not just how, but why we do certain things. He was always willing to stop and answer any questions, and the food was amazing!!! I highly recommend this if you are looking for something fun and different.” Kevin H.

“Chef Ross created a wonderful menu for our outdoor BBQ event. He was a pleasure to plan with, and his food was outstanding and very reasonably priced. I highly recommend him!” Tricia C.
