Reviews for Stamford personal chefs
Thumbtack Customer
Chef Craig was hired as a personal chef for my proposal of marriage. He crafted a menu based on my preference and helped me consider the wine for pairing. He arrived at my house prepared for cooking for a memorable night and nailed it. I was extremely satisfied with his professionalism and culinary expertise.

I was blown away by Chef Ryan's culinary talent and the professionalism of his team. Not only was the food more delicious than the photos and descriptions convey, but there is also no dish he cannot create. Let your imagination run wild! Your wish is truly Chef Ryan's command. We had to plan a complicated dinner- party with many specific requests and constant tweaks and changes to the menu. Chef Ryan was always immediately responsive via e-mail, phone, and text. He accommodated every need, no matter how large or small. Ask Chef Ryan provides a holistic culinary experience, not just fantastic cooking. He was interactive, teaching us all so much about food, the process of cooking, and the elements of a great meal. He delighted my guests to a point where we didn't want him to return to the kitchen! If you want the highest quality, most delightful, and professional personal chef experience, stop your search here. Look no further than Ask Chef Ryan. The next time we need anything regarding excellent food, be it catering a large event or booking another private chef experience at home, I am calling Chef Ryan.
