I hired Dave for a birthday party that I could not attend. I was not present, but he communicated all the way through, even sent pictures of the food he was preparing. And I got a rave review from the members that were there. They could not say enough good things about the process, the event, and the food, and his personality. I would highly recommend Dave. I wish I could hire him, but I do not live in the area. What an incredible evening he presented.
