Here is a dynamic duo if I ever saw one- Astrid and Seth Hayes owners of Snookin N Cookin. Captain Seth takes clients fishing then comes to your home and becomes the chef with lots of help from Astrid. We had the pleasure of having them in our home in January, we asked for small plates and boy did they went to town with an amazing variety of tidbits all perfectly prepared and presented. My kitchen was immaculate when they left. These two have a really great idea going for them and so pleasant to work with. Give them a try. Vicki S. Bonita Springs, FL
