Chef in Los Angeles, California
We hired Christina as a private chef for a special occasion dinner party for 12 and couldn't be happier with the result. I had some specific needs and she met them all. She was very professional and very easy to communicate with throughout the process. We discussed the menu at length, kicked around several options for a four course meal and dessert, including vegetarian options. She recently wrote a cookbook, so she had multiple suggestions at the ready. On the night of the event, her execution was impeccable. She was on time, organized, efficient in the kitchen, and most importantly, whipped up a mouth watering meal at significantly less cost than if we had thrown this shindig at a restaurant. The menu ran the gambit from Shrimp Saganaki, to baked zucchini cakes, to some insanely tasty avocado, potato, garlic dip thingy, to braised short ribs that fell off the bone. Will hire her again for the next private party.
