​Zee S. said: "The Rub was great. I grilled for the family using it and got thumbs up."

Devin F. said: "I was lucky enough to try some of Steve's incredible cooking today and it was fantastic! All the dishes that I tried exploded with flavor. This won't be a one time thing. I'm looking forward to more!"

​Diane LS said: "We used the seasoning (Nina's "Unpredicatable" Rub). I loved it. My husband (Chef Steve S.) actually used it on salmon. It was great. I thought it was going to be really strong for the salmon, but it was perfect. He liked it so much he brought it to his class to use when he made the students lunch the first day. He made roast pork. It was a hit with them too. He said the layers of flavor in the seasoning worked really well."

Stephen G. said: "The salsa and Ropa Vieja were awesome. These people know how to dish up tasty food."

Jason V. said: "A true perfection of great taste and service!"

Both items were also cooked to perfection! I cannot wait to have more! Thank you for introducing your cuisine to our area."
