It has been just over three years since David placed our Executive Chef Peter Smithing here at Plainfield Country Club. He has been nothing short of spectacular with his food quality, presentation and cost controls. Member satisfaction with our dining operation has never been higher. In addition to his fine culinary skills and leadership, he is accommodating to the members and their special requests and is a positive influence on the staff.
Your search process was very thorough and helped to put the best candidates for our Club in front of the committee. You made what is typically a very tedious and chance process fair and objective that allowed us to find the right fit for members and staff. I am certain that Chef Peter’s resume would not have found my desk without your assistance. He has become my key staff member that I can lean on and trust for any project or challenges that arise.
