Fantastic food and a absolute pleasure to work with. Looking forward to working with him in the future!Jun 20, 2017Verified
Chef Blu was amazing! He came early to my event and had all of his own equipment. He cooked infront of my guest guaranteeing freshness. The food was spectacular and every bite was more delicious than the last. Our menu consisted... • Spinach peacock salad • Three-way mac & cheese • Seasonal vegetable medley • Steak Au Poivre • Salmon Cioppino Everything was cooked to perfection and Chef Blu is a great caterer to have at your next event! STRONGLY recommend! P.s. The clean up was all done by him too which was great!May 11, 2017Verified
I hired Blue's Private Chef and Catering for a staff appreciation lunch at our elementary school. Since the luncheon was being paid for by the PTO we needed something affordable that showed our teachers how much we appreciate them. We went with a Southern BBQ menu and the food and service was wonderful! We would definitely consider hiring him for future events. Thanks!May 21, 2016Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I do my best to be as clear as possible in terms of what I offer to my guests, wherever our interactions may take place. My guests receive a copy of any of my menus pertaining to the requests of their event at their request, and any questions pertaining to the menus that are not clarified, I am more than willing to go step by step through the entire menu, and price of an event. No hidden agenda, no undersided fees. Honest culinary integrity at it's core.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been a culinarian in the Hospitality Industry for more than 10 years now. I attended one of the top ranked culinary programs in the nation, The Chef Apprenticeship Program, and became a Certified Chef through said program and have had the opportunity to work with and next to some of the top chefs in the Hospitality Industry in the city of Columbus. I have a deep seated passion for cooking and for being a chef and am always looking for ways to improve myself. I have been an adamant member and supporter of the American Culinary Federation for the past 6 years, which gave me the opportunity to compete on a national level at the National Chef of the Year Competition in Kansas City, Missouri. Below is a list of accomplishments throughout my time as a chef, from beginning to finish, to name a few: Associates Degree in Applied Science for Culinary Arts Baking Certificate in Pastry Arts ACF Certification - Certified Sous Chef ServSafe Certification - Manager Level Manage First Certificate - Professional & Mastery
- How did you get started doing this type of work?At first, I was inspired by my father, who would cook every day, and to me, being a young child, naive to the kitchen, looked like a mysterious magician to me. Being completely self, I was immediately captivated, though it didn't take complete hold until my mid teens. I decided to start Blue's Private Chef & Catering as an outlet for my creative and independent style of thinking and cooking as a chef, as well as a way to reestablish the ideals of what being a chef is by displaying food as being more subjective rather than objective. I want the world to experience a true sense of integrity of food, the way it should be, the way most chefs are being overlooked for.
