Chef Laurie's reviews

Chef Laurie presented a gastronomic experience we never thought possible in the comfort of our own house. Highly recommended for a special occasion!

5/ 5

Take a chef and chef Laurie Curtis saved our 30th anniversary in lock down. A clever menu that traveled well and worked for social isolation. Very clear method instructions for our son who was able to put the whole thing together and serve us the 5 courses. Excellent communication and a real effort to make our evening very special. Would highly recommend.
