Introduction: I am an ACF Certified Executive Chef with over 30 years experience in catering and fine dining. I am very passionate about my profession and have extensive experience in savory and pastry cooking. I have cooked for past presidents, past Secretaries of State and several celebrities including Bill Clinton, Henry Kissinger, Warren Christopher, Mary Steenburgen, Ted Danson and Andy Griffith. I am easy to get along and enjoy the challenge of building inspired custom menus. The typical process for perspective customers is to first contact me through Thumbtack and provide as much information up front as possible. Simply use the questionnaire that Thumbtack provides and that will help us get started. I'll then contact you about the specifics of your event, food preferences, number of courses, etc. I'll then provide you with some menu choices and prices built to your preferences. After we agree on the menu, date, price and location then I will put you on my schedule. REFERENCES PROVIDED ON REQUEST

I chose Greg as a personal chef for my 8th anniversary. Greg is an awesome chef! The food was way beyond our expectations! He is a very nice person and we will definitely do regular business with him. My husband was very surprised and very pleased with his anniversary gift. His exact words were treat yourself you won't be disappointed.

We were not able to hire this chef but he was so kind and polite and extremely quick to let me know there was a conflict. We hope to hire him next time!

I hate that I had a previous engagement but look forward to hearing from you if you have another event. The Persian-American fusion would have been a lot of fun
