    "Stephen cooked a 3 course dinner for my husband and me. It was heavenly - I loved the harmony of flavours and each course was a visual feast too. Stephen was very approachable and friendly, full of energy and the ultimate professional. You can tell he really loves what he does and it was an experience we won’t forget in a hurry for all the right reasons!" - Michelle Wilton
