Joanne’s Kind Words

We have had Nickolas Rizzo host dinner parties in our home on many occasions, both small casual gatherings and large formal ones.

The food has been superb every single time.

He is happy to take our suggestions or create a menu all his own. Sometimes we will suggest a theme and he will take it from there. Other times we might want to create a menu using all local or all seasonal ingredients and he will accommodate that as well.

I truly do not think you could possibly find more well prepared and delicious food from appetizers, salads, pasta, entrees and desserts.

Nickolas is a consummate professional. He always arrives early with plenty of time to prepare, he is never rushed and always has everything under control. He serves each course as if you were dining in a Michelin star restaurant.
Many of our guests have since reached out to Nickolas to cook for them at their residences.

When he leaves our home the kitchen and dining areas are immaculate and the leftovers are packaged neatly and put away in the refrigerator. You would never know that a meal had been prepared and served in our home – all we have to do is turn out the lights and go to bed!

Nickolas has a wonderful way about him. He is so passionate about food and it shows in everything he does.

I would highly recommend Nickolas without reservation.

To Whom It May Concern,

I am delighted to write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Nickolas Rizzo. I have known Nickolas for over 4 years and from the outset, he has showed courtesy, respect and true professionalism. He has always impressed everyone around him with his expertise of food.

Our relationship has grown over the years as I have employed Nickolas for several large home and office dinner parties. He is a warm, thoughtful, dependable person, the type who is always willing to do what is asked.

His knowledge of pairing foods, from appetizers to the main course with all the sides and through dessert, makes planning a menu quite enjoyable and easy. His concern for the different tastes and dietary concerns for my guests made me realize that planning a large menu needs to include food for everyone to enjoy.

Along with all the thorough planning, Nickolas has proven to be highly adaptable in any kitchen to get the job done to perfection. He never misses a step and maintains a smooth workflow even under pressure. Guests love watching him work as he respectfully acknowledges their curiosity and finds time to communicate with them as they ask questions or just consider him as another guest to socialize with.

Nickolas’ timing of when to serve the different dishes is also quite impressive. From the first arrival of guests there is already an order to the kitchen and food. What to serve and when to serve it has been well established and is executed with perfection. You never see disorder or confusion and the presentation is impeccable. Cleanliness and accountability in the kitchen is a priority that Nickolas keeps serious and follows during the entire event. At the end of the evening, expect to see a very clean and organized kitchen.
