I've worked with many professional chefs in both my personal and professional life. Never before have I met someone who so quickly becomes the highlight of your day. I found myself rushing off the slopes to smell and see what treats Chef Alex had in store for the evening meal. Casually mention you love garlic and the next night a tray of roasted garlic surrounded by sumptuous tomatoes and olives will appear. Chef is great at listening and responding. Wonderful with children and knows how to pace a meal to keep everyone happy and entertained. Everything is made with great care, attention to detail and lots of laughter and love. Nothing pretentious or uncomfortable, Chef feels like he is part of the family, not a stranger in your kitchen. Such a delight to end an evening in your home with a wonderful meal you didn't have to prepare!Jul 10, 2018
I can't say enough about chef Alex's talents! Alex is available for a variety of services to name a few, personal shopping, birthday/ celebrations, special events, wine and food pairings. One of the best services Chef Alex provides is personal shopping. When you are traveling and want your Ski Town experience to begin asap this WOULD NOT include grocery store and liquor store stops. Alex will take care of it all! Alex will make all special occasions memorable! Birthday's, anniversaries, special events, parties, and holiday dinners are all done to perfection! Alex's knowledge on wine and meal pairings will leave you swooning, whether its for an intimate dinner or a group of friends and family it will leave your guests with a night to remember! Alex is upbeat and professional and displays a very high work ethic at a great value. Alex hits all the marks of exemplary service! Don't miss out on the Alex experience!Feb 1, 2018
Alex is not only a talented chef, he has a personality to match. He treated me and my guests like VIPs and he was kind enough to bring my 11 year old daughter into the preparation and serving of the food. She was on cloud 9 and still hasn't stopped talking about "Chef Alex." She is a super picky eater, but being a part of this event got her engaged and excited and she even tried every single dish "like a good chef does." It was an event to remember, thank you Alex!Sep 5, 2018Verified
We hired Alex to prepare a dinner and two breakfasts for a group of 12 of us on a recent trip to Aspen. Alex was enthusiastic, punctual, and more than delivered in quantity and quality on all the meals. He took charge of the menus after accepting our feedback on dietary requirements, worked with multiple different dietary requirements within our group, and prepared delicious and memorable meals for our group. He was a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to use his services again if we found ourselves needing private chef or catering services in an area he services. Thank you Alex!Mar 27, 2018Verified
Chef Alex is an epicurean genius and a blast to be around! He created a gluten free meal for a family dinner party that was beautifully executed and tasted amazing!! I've never had such amazing gF bread in my life and he baked it in my home. I had a loose idea of what I wanted to serve and he took care of wine pairings, details, and all of the shopping and prep - it was completely stress free. He added a great element to the dinner by adding a bit of panache and stories about some of the dishes - like a chef's table experience. I would highly recommend him again for a larger event but he was absolutely perfect for my family dinner as well!! He's very professional, punctual, organized, budget friendly and listened well to my requests. Everyone should hire Chef Alex as an alternative to going out to dinner!!Aug 29, 2018VerifiedExecutive Chef Services's reply
Absolutely!! I am at your service and I can bake you more bread any time:)
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I prefer to be paid hourly, and I provide discounts for multiple meals.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?New customers usually contact me via email or phone to discuss their events. The first interaction, over the phone or in person, is typically a brainstorming session in which party size, occasion, food and drink preference, and dates is discussed. The amount of client involvement in the process is their prerogative-- some clients like to be very involved, whereas others give me complete creative freedom. For large events, a tasting consultation may be arranged beforehand to allow clients to choose a menu.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am have a well rounded understanding of nutrition, and have experience facilataing kosher, halal, vegan, heart-healthy, and paleo feasts. I am able to accommodate some allergy restrictions and dietary preferences. These should be brought up in the bid to make sure I have the ingredients. I have studied Artisinan baking, pastry, soups, and flavor dynamics for many of the world's culture. I am not above popcorn, milkshakes and a perfect BLT.
