About

Pierre DeRagon Personal Chef Services gets 5 stars, but if we could give more we would! We couldn’t have been happier with our experience with Pierre who catered our wedding at Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens. After discovering Pierre on Thumbtack, he was wiling to drive more than an hour to set up a private tasting for us and our family, all without any commitment from us. But we immediately knew once we met Pierre and did our tasting that we had found our caterer. During the planning period, Pierre was great with answering questions, offering ideas and putting our big day together. He made two trips to our venue so he would know exactly what he was working with. We were interested in non-traditional wedding food and looking for more of a BBQ/picnic feel and he took that concept and provided us with a menu far better than we could have ever imagined, from homemade soft pretzels and potato chips at cocktail hour to suckling pig, gourmet grilled corn and a delicious spread of homemade pies at the reception. Pierre not only took care of the food but also helped us with all our rentals and used items from his own personal collection to decorate the buffet tables. Everything looked and tasted amazing! Pierre’s staff was also great, attentive and extremely professional. Our guests raved about the food at the wedding and are still talking about it 3 months later! Pierre’s dedication and commitment to his craft is unparalleled. We highly recommend Pierre’s Personal Chef Services to any and all!

Kim created a special dinner menu for our son, who turned 25! She asked about likes and dislikes and was very flexible in planning for exactly what we wanted. Kim showed up on time and prepared a fabulous meal at Jake's home for 8 people. Kim brought along a server, and cleaned up for us. Everything was fresh and delicious! We loved the way she thought outside the box and was so willing to make the menu suit our tastes! I would recommend Kim for any personal chef needs!

Tanya, prepared an excellent meal for 11 people on my 60th birthday. We talked, and she presented menu choices. She arrived promptly with one helper. They worked hard in the kitchen, were very helpful, and allowed me and my partner to enjoy the evening, and our guests without worrying about anything. I highly recommend Tanya as a personal chef for all occasions!!

Tony Daggett has been the all time favorite chef of the International Primal Psychology Association. This is a very demanding group who has always otherwise had food complaints. Tony's diverse meals, fresh deserts and creative snacks, as well as his extremely cooperative and charismatic behavior all contribute to his success. I was not the least bit surprised to hear of his branching into event coordination as he has everything that it takes and more to please all kinds of groups. He is considerate, listens well and observes what is needed, and he goes about putting himself into things as needed to make for fabulous events. You'll be glad when you choose to hire Tony! Gratitude to Tony for satisfying our group with it's intensive needs and huge range of demands. We couldn't have asked for more.

Many thanks to Chef Jason for making this an outstanding and memorable evening! Every detail was attended to with the utmost attention. The menu was phenomenal - the preparation exquisite. The server he chose was wonderful and Chef Jason came into the dining room and explained each course as it was being served. My guests were absolutely awed. Now I have to think of another occasion to get him back...... Vito Izzo Managing Director Global Travel & Tours LLC

I needed a Chef for my dads 60th birthday party. I interviewed a few Chefs but chose Alex because he was not only very professional, but seemed as in to my event as i did! He and his staff arrived early, were very nice and even patient with some unruly guests. The server they brought was outstanding and cleaned as she went to ensure the tables always remained looking nice. The food was amazing! Without a doubt a 5 star meal... all in my parents home! Alex was easy to work with and very accommodating when I changed the number of guests twice, I will hopefully be using Chef Alex in the future and definitely recommend him to everyone. I look forward to attending on of his events around the city as well. Overall it was a great party and Alex and his staff really added to the experience.

About

I am an extremely affordable and highly skilled personal chef, available in Philadelphia and in surrounding areas, for all occasions. I can cook at your home, bring you fully prepared meals with simple instructions, or cater small parties. I am very flexible and very affordable. I am looking to get a name for myself, and let my reputation speak for itself before I want to become profitable. I am a self-taught at-home cook or personal chef. I've always been able to cook since I was a child, but over the past 8 or so years, my skill level has really jumped leaps and bounds. Long story short, I was about 23 or 24 when I was fairly broke. I am now 31. I had to work with what was in my pantry and refrigerator every night on a very tight budget. Combined that with books and the food network, I was able to create some really tasty and unique dishes. Over the years, I've come a long way in my career, outside of cooking, to be able to afford better and fresher products, and my skill level and technique have exceeded my expectations beyond belief. Over the past four or five years, I really started to notice that people I would cook for weren't just saying "Oh, this is good. Can I have the recipe?" It was more along the lines of "Wow, I would order this any day of the week in a restaurant." Or "This is amazing. You really should think about opening up a restaurant or get a TV cooking show." It was then when I realized this skill might be a little bit more than just an above-average at-home cook type of ability. I did some work in a professional kitchen, while I was in Colorado at a three-star restaurant. This was more of getting a feel of the day-to-day life of running a kitchen. The executive chef really took me under his wings, and showed me a lot of little things that I probably never would've even thought about. From there, I started doing personal chef work and small party catering for friends and family. I did this all free of charge, because I loved it so much. My brother, who can be a skeptic, or some might say a realist, of my crazy ideas, even told me this is something I should really go for. That brings us to the present. I got married and moved to Philly in a three-week period from early March to the beginning of April, so I had taken some time off, before and after that period, to get organized. Since then, I cooked for a mothers' day party at our tiny loft apartment in Old City, for 15 people, and it was a huge hit. I literally did everything when it came to food prep, cooking, and so on. My wife and I recently put together a fundraiser event for our dog's knee surgery. Society hill's newest restaurant let us take over the place for a day to help raise funds for our pup and local animal shelters. I took over the kitchen, and cooked for about 60 or so people, and probably put out 300 plus hors d'oeuvres, more or less by myself. We actually had a full-page article in the Philadelphia Daily News about it. We're going to be on Mary Talks Money, comcast channel 245, and NBC 10 is going to do a piece on it, too. So that's more or less my story. I hate to use a cliche term, but I do a lot of fusion. Italian and Asian, mixed with some modern American, is probably the best way to describe my cooking. For example, I called one of the hors d'oeuvres I cooked at the fundraiser as an Asian inspired eggplant Rollatini. It was thin eggplant slices marinated in sesame oil, and then grilled. Placed in a wonton wrapper, and topped with a garlic basil ricotta mixture, and rolled. After it has been pan seared for a crispy outside, I topped it with a sweet and spicy oyster sauce, and soy sauce reduction. That is probably a good example of me in a nutshell when it comes to my style. I am also excellent with normal Italian and Asian cuisine, and my modern American cuisine has really come along way. Usually, there is an Italian or Asian twist on my modern American dishes. With all that being said, I can do simple, traditional or more everyday cooking very easily. I love the farmers' market, fresh herbs, and cooking healthy. My website is coming soon, and referrals are available upon request. Feel free to contact me for any questions or concerns.
