"We hired Affordable Chef Services for a Birthday party early this month and were blown away at both the quality of food and level of professionalism. Mark was flexible and provided suggestions but listened to what our vision was. During the event Mark and his staff were right on the mark yet able to adjust when needed. My husband and I are foodies and were so impressed by the quality and presentation of the food. In short, everything was seamless! What a great event -- thanks Mark. We'll definitely be hiring you again!"
