''The private chef we had booked through you was great, Laron was a lovely man and the food was delicious. We were pleasantly surprised to see that the kitchen looked untouched as he had cleaned everything away, loaded the dishwasher and put the leftovers in the fridge!''
Rebecca, April 2017
''Laron was extremely friendly and the food was amazing. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. He left the kitchen tidy and some leftovers in the fridge.''

''Thank you for arranging Laron to cook for us, everyone was so impressed with the food and especially the sticky toffee pudding (the mother of the groom would have married him there and then just for the pudding). Please pass on our thanks, the food really was fab.''
