"My husband and I received [Dinner for 2] gift card… as a wedding gift last October…  The highlight was most definitely meeting [our Chef].  She was delightful, engaging, professional and made the entire event for us!"

J. McKenna
"None of our friends had ever experienced their own chef, and I'm so thankful to my assistant for researching and suggesting this for my wedding shower.  We had such a wonderful, relaxing, memorable time - just watching and talking to the chef while she cooked, eating her wonderful food, drinking fantastic wine, laughing, singing, dancing... so much better than going out! Now that the wedding is over, I'll be sharing this type of chef experience with my adorable hubbie!"

​J. MacDonald
"10/10.  Our Chef was absolutely fabulous!  She made our experience more enjoyable than we could have imagined.  It didn't occur to me in advance to let the chef know we had an 8 month puppy but to our delight she wasn't the least bit put out by her!  We have already recommended the Chef Experience to multiple people as a result of the wonderful chef, amazing food, and overall great experience we had.  Carissa deserves a giant Kudos for her work.  I hope other people are fortunate enough to take part in an experience like this."

G. Horner
​"Chef Bojan was very professional and the evening was as much a chef demonstration as it was a dining experience.  It was amazing how consistently he worked at preparing the courses and was non-stop for the time he was here.  The attention to detail and the exacting preparation with everything done from scratch was truly amazing."

J. Marshe
"From start to finish our chef was nothing short of amazing.  He turning cooking dinner into a magical romantic experience.  We will definitely hire him again and I've begun telling all of my friends about him.  Thank you for making my wife's birthday perfect."

S. Grewal

“The food was astounding and we all ate WAY too much!!  Chef Chris was charming, knowledgeable and friendly yet he knew when to be discreet and let us talk to our guests.  It was an unforgettable night, and we will do it again for our next anniversary.”        

P. Smith

“Thanks for helping us find a replacement Chef at such short notice.  We would have had to close the restaurant otherwise.  Next time you’re in Manitoba, dinner is on us!”    


A. Cunningham

“Thank you Chef Alliance, for restoring sanity to our household!!  Dinner is no longer stressful now that Chef Karmen is looking after things.  Her bi-weekly service is always a much anticipated event, as we wait to taste her culinary delights!  Even though Bill and I haven’t been trying to, we have both lost several pounds, simply by not snacking when we get home, and eating Karmen’s healthy, home-cooked dinners.”    


My Thai Restaurant

“a good resource for restaurants who need good, qualified staff.  will use it again.”    


T. Timmerans

"The food was excellent, but even better was our interaction with chef Justin. Throughout the experience, he chatted aimiably with us while maintaining a highly professional demeanor. The combination ensured a uniquely intimate and memorable experience. Also, not only did he pprepare and serve the meal with great expertise, but he also cleaned up. What a treat that was!
I would also like to thank Justin for going the extra mile to provide me with a list of ingredients, including quantities, so that I could calculate the number of carbohydrates in each dish and accurately determine how much insulin to inject for my diabetes. It is usually very difficult for diabetics to control their blood sugar when eating out, because you never really know what ingredients the chef has used and in what quantity. Justin's provision of ingredients and amounts eliminated that problem, and I successfully injected the correct amount of insulin to keep my blood sugar within normal levels. Much appreciated."


J. Poppitt

"An incredible experience, better then a spa day! Our experience with Chef Jonathan surpassed all expectation! Jonathan is very professional, personable and is good with follow up. He provided suggestions before the dinner and was flexible with scheduling. He arrived on time and was very engaging. Jonathan shared techniques, his expertise and advice. We all enjoyed his stories. The presentation, aromas, textures, flavours and combinations were a masterpiece! A five star dining experience! We can't wait to do it again."

​"Don and I, and our guests, would like to let you know, what a wonderful experience we had with Chef Jono, Saturday Aug.16 / 08 Chef Jono started us off with four wonderful appetizers, followed by his Signature Wedding Bouquet Salad. Our main course was the beef dish, and the black cod dish, which were both very tasty. We found Chef Jono very entertaining and full of an abundance of information for everyone, from Barbequing, to product information. Very helpful to know, what is actually in some of the food which we consume every day. Once again BRAVO TO CHEF JONO. We would most definitely, welcome Chef Jono back to our home."

"Last night we learned to cook my favourite dish - Thai Red Curry. Everything was made from scratch, so the flavours were so fresh and yummy. This will be a regular on our menu, and I don't think I'll ever eat this dish in a restaurant again, now that I know what it SHOULD taste like. Awesome experience. I'll be giving your number to my girlfriends. Please say thank you to Chef Patrick -he was so easy to work with!"

I feel like a new person!"

"As you know, Sonia, I wanted to do something special when I proposed to Gillian, and my secretary suggested calling you guys. The chef created a wonderful menu, he was courteous yet unobtrusive while we were eating, and cleaned up without any fuss. A true professional. It was the perfect night for everyone. My secretary is now getting a big fat bonus this year, Chef Howard got a hefty tip and I got the answer I wanted because GILLIAN SAID YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We’ll be calling you when we start looking for caterers!"
