In the wake of a wonderful dinner party to celebrate a milestone birthday, we awoke to this wonderful message from a client.
“Wonderful night. La-toya and Aaron were amazing. The food was delicious. Our guests kept raving about the evening. We would definitely use or recommend your service in the future.”
This praise alone makes us happy, but let me give you a little history regarding this birthday dinner.
We were originally contacted by this client last November. She could hardly believe her husband was going to be turning 70, and she wanted to celebrate in a special way with close friends, honouring this milestone.
Through manjya she was connected to a fabulous chef, a decadent menu was chosen, and the worry of how to celebrate was taken off her mind.
Well, as we all know sometimes things don’t work out as planned. Personal emergencies arise, and such was the case with the chef who was to work with this client.
We received the unfortunate news the day before the dinner… and the dinner happened to be on Valentine’s Day – one of the busiest days of the year for personal chefs.
We were saddened for the chef who was dealing with a tragic situation, and grateful for his responsibility and professionalism to his client and to manjya. But, we knew we had a client to inform, a plan B to make, and a 70th birthday dinner to pull off seamlessly.
Here is one more benefit of working with manjya, as explained to our client by manjya Co-Founder, Mia Andrews:
“We are very fortunate, that when life emergencies happen, we can draw from our pool of competent and talented chefs. Thank you very much for your flexibility in accepting La-toya to stand in for your chef for your event. We have had many happy clients give us great feedback about her and are confident that your event will be well taken care of.”
We feel fortunate to have been told by a chef of La-toya’s caliber, “anything for you guys at manjya”. And just like that she scrambled, made other arrangements, gave assurance to us and the client that everything would be taken care of. As always, she exceeded our expectations and those of our client.
So, the next time you have a special event and people to feed, consider working with manjya, where we have a depth of talented chefs with kind hearts who always want to see our clients happy.
