Lauren B., Fairfield, CT
Personal Chef : "THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!! Last night's meal was incredible. Being able to watch a professional cook do their thing was amazing for all of us and I felt like the cooking channel was in the house with us. If BobbyFlay walked in and challenged you to an escargot throw down I would not have been surprised at all. The meal was perfect down to every last detail and it was great how you allowed us to be as involved as we wanted to be in the whole process. You are clearly very passionate about what you do and where you are from and if only for an evening it felt like you took us home to France. The icing on the cake however was your personality and how the conversations we had with you just completed our night. Our family will certainly be calling you many more times in the future and are all anxiously looking forward to the next time we see you. Merci beaucoup."

She was very engaging and we had a good time talking about France and trying out our French conversation. Overall, it was a tremendous experience. We all had a wonderful time and the meal was absolutely delicious. We would highly recommend Emilie and wish that she could join us for dinner every night!
