For more efficiency on the event and better price on Chef4U's services, we recommended to preferentially choose the same salad, appetizer, main course and dessert for everyone. However, in Chef4U we are always happy to customize thoroughly each element of your final menu till  fully satisfy any special preference, such as dietaryGuanacaste-Chef-4U-Chef-Nicolas.jpgrequirements of one or more of your guests, as well as religious/cultural conditions that are important to you or your group.
