Great night! Chef Ellis made the evening super fun! The food was SO DELICIOUS! It was very entertaining to watch him cook while he chatted with us. I was fascinated that he didn’t use timers for anything and how lovely everything was plated. We all had a great time.

Stop looking, this is definitely who you want to book for your experience. Whether it’s date night or a simple brunch you will not be disappointed. My wife and I are starting out on our vegetarian journey and we were nervous about how the dinner would turn out. Prior to this, meat was a staple in our diet. Chef Ellis created a dish that was not only delicious, but it confirmed that we can follow this lifestyle and still have AMAZING food. Chef Ellis prepared tacos and a side salad for us. Both were the best I’ve ever had to date. We also enjoyed interacting with Chef Ellis and being able to do so within the comfort of our own home. He was a great conversationalist and very respectful. We look forward to utilizing his services in the future!

Ellis was a good conversationalist however, this did not make up for the subpar chef experience. Some of the issues which garnered this review includes..Ellis walked into our air bnb without a mask even after seeing the participants with masks. I ended up asking him to retrieve his mask from his vehicle. Several weeks prior to our booked experience, I requested broccoli over spinach which Ellis agreed to. However, Ellis showed up to our event with spinach. He did attempt to prepare it to our taste but it was failed bcs it was salty and not to mention the texture of spinach is what we didn’t care for and the reason I requested broccoli. Ellis arrived with his cooking items in a pan that was dirty with some type of liquid in it. We thought Ellis would arrive with all of the items he needed to prepare our meal as otherwise was not notated in the booking description. It was a surprise when he needed to use our salt/pepper etc. Additionally, prior to Ellis beginning, my fiancé and I washed all the dishes Ellis used to prepare our meal as it was clear he wasn’t planning to. In my opinion, this shld have been a duty of the chef. The food quality was not at all what was expected for the price! Ellis prepared salmon, Mac and cheese and spinach. The salmon was bland and the spinach was slimy/salty however, the mac and cheese was the best part of the meal! The complementary dessert Ellis brought was store bought lemon sliced cake which Ellis never served or even mentioned he’d bring. He simply left the cake in its container on the kitchen counter which we found as we were cleaning up after he had left. Neither myself nor my fiancé eat lemon cake. But the above outlines the basis for this review. We do not believe Ellis food quality and service warrants the cost for this experience.
