It was another impressive dinner we have arranged via mobichef! Though Chef Alex is new on the platform but he is a very experienced chef. He is nice and passionate. I invited another family to my home for dinner, and the family enjoyed a lot too!
Chef Alex is from Russia and did an authentic Borscht Soup that my husband recalled it is the taste he tried in Moscow years ago. Not only the food is all tasting, chef Alex focused a lot on the food presentation too, he “wow” us with every course in the menu. the slow cooked lamb racks are prepared to perfection, and he is so kind to accommodate my special request to change one of the main to fish (as I do not eat lamb).
He is very approachable too, we talked about ingredients and cuisines. Will definitely book again in future. Thank you chef Alex!
