Bill More Testimonials

From an Intimate/Romantic Dinner Client--
"The food was delicious and you were so much fun! It was a unique experience being able to relax in our own home while someone else worried about making a great meal and cleaning up afterward. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves."

From a Dinner Party Client --
"Thank you again for making such a special evening for us! My guests couldn't stop raving about you and I gave your contact information to both of them. For ourselves, we will definitely do this again. It was so much fun being part of the party as opposed to running to the kitchen to check on the food all evening."

From a Dinner Party Client --
"I loved how you took the reins so to speak. You made me feel like I didn't have to worry about a thing. You were personable yet not dominating when you served our meal. And how nice to walk into a clean kitchen after the meal !!!"

"The chef made all our favorite recipes with the same care and attention that we normally give them when we aren't being spoiled by a chef. He was as much the entertainment as he was the chef and we couldn't have had a more special evening! A tip-top evening all around and I can't wait for the occasion to do it again!"

From an Anniversary Dinner Client --
"The evening was so special being served by Bill. It was such a nice treat not to serve ourselves or clean up!

We all had a wonderful time and our parents felt completely pampered. We will see you again in the near future."

From a Girls Night IN! Party Client --
"Bill you made the night special for my girls and me. We enjoyed relaxing and catching up while you whipped up a delicious meal. Everything was perfect and no improvements are necessary. We enjoyed the massage portion as well. Your therapists were professional and personable. We all felt relaxed and refreshed. They were GREAT! We had a great time and I can't wait to recommend your services!"

From an Intimate/Romantic Dinner Client --
"My fiance and I had a wonderful time. It was very relaxing and such a treat to have someone cook for us in the comfort of our home. Bill More was a delight as well. He was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and professional. I would definitely recommend him to my friends in the future and who knows we may use him again too! A great experience!"

From a Dinner Party Client --
"Bill took the anxiety out of the evening and allowed us to concentrate on enjoying our friends. We had a great time at the party and our guests loved the surprise that we hired a personal chef! They raved about the party and we had an anxiety-free evening. It was great to walk into the kitchen after eating and see that there was no mess--Bill cleaned up everything. Now if only Bill would move in with us... Bill, thanks for a great party!"

From a Girls Night IN! Party Client --
"I think what probably stood out the most was the warm, inviting, and friendly personalities of not only Bill, but also the massage therapists. Not to mention the extreme convenience and unique experience that your service offer. Our entire group felt very comfortable and in AWE!! The food was really excellent. I want to thank you for not only accomodating our group but for making the experience so spectacular and enjoyable! I think you offer a wonderful service and I am so glad that we all got to experience it!"

From an Intimate/Romantic Dinner Client --
"We had a perfect evening. It's a strange feeling be able to relax in your own home and then be treated to a meal with no clean up. Strange in a good way, of course! This experience could become addictive!"

From a Dinner Party Client --
"Your Secret Chef had two surprises for me: First the food war really great, not just good. Second, it was totally comfortable and easy to share our open kitchen/dining area with Bill. We felt natural and relaxed the whole time, and after he left we had coffee and after dinner drinks in a CLEAN kitchen. This is a wonderful treat for the whole family, and we'll be having Bill back soon!"

From a Dinner and Massage Experience Client --

From a Girls Night IN! Party Client --
My girls and I thoroughly enjoyed an evening of effortless fine dining and relaxation. Every little detail was perfect from the welcome rose and the appetizer to the massages and exquisite dinner. We can't wait for the next Girls' Night IN!

From a Dinner Party Client --
It was the best birthday surprise one can ever receive, to have a professional chef in your own home, making a gourmet meal, and serving hot food to guests so a hostess can relax. A truly luxurious experience! The food was terrific and you are a wonderful person - we enjoyed meeting you. Thank you!

From a Dinner Party Client --
Bill, you did a great job. It was nice having a wonderful meal without having to go out.
It was much more comfortable just being at our own home. The dinner exceeded our expectations. You made the evening more enjoyable than we had expected.
Thank you so much.

From an Intimate Romantic Dinner Client --
Last night my husband and I had the privilege of experiencing an Intimate Romantic dinner designed and prepared by Bill More, Your Secret Chef!
He was personable, and we had a fun evening.
The meal was out-of-this-world fabulous! He has a gift of food and fun. He printed out our menu and placed it in a nice frame--now we have a keepsake for our evening. I also was given the most beautiful bouquet of flowers. I just can't say enough ho much fun we had, and how professional Bill is. He even cleaned my kitchen when he was done!
Thanks Bill. Can't wait to hire you again.

From a Dinner & Massage Experience Client --
"Many things made it special but some of the best aspects were my husband’s gratitude for such a personal gift and Bill’s amazing talent. And the massages---we could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you for making our evening so special!"

From an Intimate Romantic Dinner Client --
Chef Bill was very attentive to the pace of the dinner and ensured each course was ready in a timely manner. He was willing to accommodate the "unknowns". The food was very well done, nicely presented and tasted great. I cannot think of any way to improve on the service. It was perfect.

From An Interactive Cooking Party Client --
I underestimated the amount of interaction that my family would do. I appreciated the fact that you picked up on this fact and took more of a direct role in making the other items. I really appreciated the fact that you realized this and adjusted and took over the cooking !! Thank you very much!!

My guests did enjoy the whole experience and commented on it.

Also – I enjoyed the new foods that we experienced that night. We will use your services again in the future. Also – we appreciate the effort you have put forth especially in our small space. Your interaction with our guests also made the evening fun as well. They really enjoyed listening to your experiences. Bill – simply put – you did a great job!!!

From A Dinner Party Client –-
It was so special for us to enjoy a night together without having to cook or clean up for ourselves at HOME. I loved the orzo salad and the mint was a great touch. The family was raving about the lava cake but the beef medallions were fabulous too. In all honesty it was all wonderful!

From a Romantic Dinner Couple --
I loved being waited on and served in our own home! What a great experience.
I absolutely LOVED the evening! The food was great, I love the idea of it being a surprise (although I HATE surprises).
Thanks so much for the great evening!

From a Romantic Dinner Client --
Everything about the whole experience was awesome!! We will definitely recommend it to our family and friends. Bill you did an incredible job, and we enjoyed every minute of it. We will do it again sometime!!!

From a Dinner Party Client --
Your dinner party option provided us an effortless and gracious way to enjoy entertaining our friends, not to mention delish! Thanks for a wonderful evening!

From a Dinner Party Client --
The evening was PERFECT!! Several times during the meal while everyone was jabbering away, my mother purposefully caught my eye and then her eyes filled with tears. It was a dream-come-true birthday for her. Everyone raved about the scrumptious food and the great service. How awesome it was to be in one of our family's favorite places and be waited on hand and foot. And besides, I have never been able to cook like that!

From a Dinner Party Client --
I really enjoyed the creativity and the quality of the food. Creativity is not a regular experience in Peoria. The oysters were delicious and creative. The crab cakes were also wonderful. It was a great night.

From a Dinner Party Client --
The experience was more than we expected as it was so relaxed and everything was done for us. The quality of the meal was wonderful, and each course exceeded our expectations.

We would highly recommend Your Secret Chef and hope to have the opportunity to dine with him again. He left nothing to be desired, leaving our kitchen as he found it, washing the dishes, attending to all our dining needs --- the perfect pampering when you want to give someone a real treat !

From a Dinner Party Client --
It was SO nice to be able to visit and enjoy our guests without having to worry about getting food prepared and served at just the right time. It went very smoothly. I was quite relaxed knowing I was not in charge.

From a Dinner Party Client --
The evening exceeded my expectation! We enjoyed the 'casualness' standing around the kitchen island visiting with Chef Bill as he prepared our appetizer. Then when we sat at the table for dinner Chef Bill served us with excellence, pouring our wine, warming our plates, clearing the table. Everything was wonderfully delicious. Each course was presented so beautifully. The Lava Cake was to die for! My husband said tonight we could do it all over again.

From a Dinner Party Client --
This is the first time we have had a chef cook for us at home. It was nice to sit back and relax and leave everything to Bill. The molten lava cake for dessert was wonderful. We love desserts here and this was a great way to finish an excellent meal.

We had a wonderful evening and our friend can’t stop talking about it. We are already deciding when to have this experience again. It was great just to leave everything to Bill. When he left and we went into the kitchen, you could not even tell that he had been there. Ladies and gentlemen take the night off and let the Secret Chef take care of you.

From a Romantic Dinner Client, a Gift from his Daughter
I will suggest your service to my friends.
It was a special night and I was impressed with the food and the conversation, you fit right in as if we had known you for more than an evening.
Thanks you for your hard work and we will tell my daughter that it was the best gift to date!!
