    Chef Andrea was the consummate professional. The cooking environment was challenging on a number of different levels but this had little to no impact on the quality of food and service that Chef Andrea was able to deliver. He really went the extra mile to ensure it was a great meal. It was a truly memorable occasion for all involved and we'd like to sincerely thank Chef Andrea for his time and effort. The food was exquisite, Andrea himself was charming and personable and we would have no hesitation in recommending Andrea to anyone. Thanks again Andrea!

    Andrea gave a cookery lesson for my partner for her birthday and then cooked for us. He was so friendly throughout, served some amazing dishes and made the evening so enjoyable for us.

    Chef Andrea was a brilliant choice. His experience in some of the world’s best kitchens shone through and each of his courses was full of flavour. His ingredients were very fresh and he put his own twist on traditional recipes. The dishes were beautifully presented and served with passion. Afterwards, Andrea and his assistant left the kitchen in immaculate condition. His correspondence was professional and prompt. Very impressive.

    I booked chef Andrea to cook a meal as a gift for my sister on her birthday. From the start, he was professional, timely and easy to communicate with. The actual dining experience was 5 star all the way - the delectable 4-course meal with fresh ingredients and culinary creativity, the professional yet friendly interaction, and how he left the kitchen impeccably clean once he was finished. I highly recommend chef Andrea, and would order his Peruvian-Italian flavor meal again in a heartbeat. Thank you chef !

    Review from Chef Mike: Andrea helped me out with a dinner, as the chef that was booked to do the dinner went off sick. Andrea did a fantastic job and the client was very happy with Andrea and his food. Thanks Andrea for helping me out a the last minute.

    Chef Andrea is an excellent & creative chef. His pappardelle with pistachio pesto was absolutely delicious, and the lamb didn't leave anything to be desired either. We had a wonderful first experience with Chef Andrea & CXC. can't wait for more :)

    Andrea cooked for me and my girlfriend on Valentines day. He arrived promptly, and immediately made us feel comfortable. Andrea cooked us a 3 course meal, all of which I could not fault. The spaghetti carbonara lived up to the expectations of 'the best carbonara in Italy', the main course beef was cooked to perfection, and the dessert of 'building your own tiramisu' was fun and interactive. Chef Andrea maintained a good balance of friendly interaction with us; talking through some of his experiences and the dishes that he was cooking; whilst leaving us to enjoy our meal when appropriate. At the end of it the kitchen was left spotless. I would definitely recommend Chef Andrea to anyone looking for a unique dining experience. Hope to see you again! Adam

    Andrea is a charming, highly competent chef. He coped well with three inquisitive children. He is clearly passionate about his cooking and eager to share this enthusiasm. The food he cooked was delicious and beautifully presented. The kitchen was left spotless. I recommend him highly and would be delighted to have him again.

    Chef Andrea and his team were simply outstanding. The ingredients were fresh and of the highest quality, the menu was amazing and all dishes were delicious. My family and I equally enjoyed our conversations with Chef Andrea as he prepared everything from scratch in our kitchen.

    Chef Andrea is extremely talented and he exceeded our expectations. He arrived at 11am and got immediately to work to prepare the 4 course gastronomic dinner. All the fresh ingredients were carefully chosen. His cooking is outstanding, mindful and exquisite. He even taught us how to make homemade pasta, particularly the “ravioloni”. Our 11yo daughter had a blast watching and learning the amazing techniques of Chef Andrea! The dinner was spectacular, worthy of a Michelin rated restaurant! Our guests were completely delighted as every course was so wonderful and delectable. We will definitively book Chef Andrea again and highly recommend him for any event.

    I recently had the privilege to be invited for dinner at friends place who had hired Chef Andrea via ChefXchange. The menu was original, tasty and surprising especially at the end when we had to build our own tiramisu. Chef Andrea adapted his cooking using local products such as a delicious tuna ceviche with mango and passion fruit followed by a wonderful sea bass with parsnip purée among other food items. Thank you Chef Andrea for such a wonderful moment, I would definitely recommend your services.

    Chef Andrea, is a professional in every sense of the word. He is a true artist and he reflects that in every dish he created. He loves experimenting and does it quite well. He made dishes that teased and tested the eater like a true Michelin trained chef does. The lamb that he cooked stole the show as it was cooked quite simply and rested atop a pistachio based puree that was truly amazing. That combo worked extremely well. The magic he worked with 4 different kinds of cauliflower was also something special. The complexity of flavors in the majority of his dishes was like an orchestra in your mouth.
