How is RIPE’s different from other personal chef services?

Feedback is extremely important to us – our clients benefit the most when an active conversation is taking place between you and the chef. If you love it let us know, if we can improve let us know. Constructive feedback  is the only way this personal chef service will fully satisfy the need of why you contacted us.
