- What else is required?
Chef Alli is much more visible from a raised platform so that her audience can easily see and enjoy her culinary presentation and antics. Please have steps placed in the front or to the side, if possible. Chef Alli must have a wireless headset mic; she enjoys being able to move around freely so she can engage and interact personally with your group. If possible, it is very beneficial to project Chef Alli’s cooking presentation with a webcam onto a large screen so that your audience can easily see how/what she is preparing. Please contact us to discuss these details.
