I am so incredibly happy that we booked Nina as our chef for my 30th birthday dinner! I am a bit of a foodie and was highly impressed with her dishes. Not only did the food taste incredible but also her presentation for each course was wonderful! She also set the table and brought flowers so everything looked so lovely. She sent plenty of options for each course for us to choose our menu from, she was very professional and the kitchen looked spotless after she was done serving our dessert. Nina also was just a lovely person in general; all my guests were raving about not only her food but also how much they enjoyed her chat. Would HIGHLY recommend her for any event! Thanks again Nina!

Nina was amazing, she cooked for my parents for my Mum's 70th. Mum and Dad thoroughly enjoyed the meal, and couldn't speak highly enough about the quality of food, and Nina's professionalism.

Highly recommended
