Kiril did a fantastic job catering for a Birthday Dinner Party, the food was fresh and expertly cooked and plated with care to all taste and flavour. The portions were huge and probably over-generous. Best of all he uses all his own equipment and by the end of the evening the kitchen was left spotless and as if nobody had been there at all. Highly recommend his service.
