“Such a fun team building event! Martin used hands-on cooking in a masterful way to promote collaboration and team spirit. His instruction was inclusive and supportive and gave everyone the confidence to try something new - we even have a few new budding chefs! It was truly a pleasure to work with someone who aligned with our values and who brought humor and positivity to every step of the process!”
“Martin was engaging and entertaining!...I was impressed with the homemade cheese he served, and knowledge of the ingredients he was using. There were some really interesting touches and flavor combinations I hadn't experienced before.
The service was presented like an upscale restaurant. This was the first time this group had experienced a personal chef, and I'm happy it was a great first experience for them!”
“OMG! Martin is the best! My wife and I hired him to cook us a special meal for our 2nd wedding anniversary and he went above and beyond. Every dish he prepared was literally one of the best things I've ever eaten in my life. He has a true gift. On top of cooking amazing food, his ability to serve and create an ambiance was outstanding. I can't say enough good things about him. If you're looking to hire the best - Martin is your guy.”
