Introduction: I have over 30 years of experience as a chef. I can do savory dishes and sweet. I am an Executive Chef, Executive Pastry Chef, Personal Chef, Culinary Instructor and Banquet Chef. I am featured in Florida Magazines as one of the Top Chefs of Polk County..I am professional trained, college degreed and apprenticed at Walt Disney World. Recently competed in a fundraising contest (Top Chef of Tampa Bay and Top Chef of Polk County) where I received best table and table decor award for both contests and Top Philanthropic Chef for Top Chef of Tampa Bay. Most recently I was featured on the front page of the Sarasota Herald teaching a culinary class.
I run a small catering and private event company that is capable of doing big things. We are accomplished in small to large events/dinners. I have no desire to have a large catering operation, I prefer to be selective with my clients and make sure that it is a perfect partnership. I specialize in smaller events which allow my creative ideas to flow and reflect in unique and delicious dishes. I understand the importance of your event matter if it is an intimate dinner for two or two hundred and want to help make it a one in a lifetime experience. Quality over quantity holds true in my business practices. I give all to my clients and their guests.
All of my dishes are fresh and made from scratch. I do not even have a freezer in my commercial kitchen. All of my fruits, vegetables and herbs are fresh and hand picked (mostly organic) from local farmers markets/ farm to table. My meats are hand picked as well. I search for the highest quality of cheeses and make all of our breads from scratch. I have experience with dietary restrictions such as Vegan, Gluten Free, Paleo, Vegetarian and Lactose Free and can create custom dishes that meets everyones needs. Going the extra mile is what seperates a chef/cook from an excpetional professional. My staff is trained with the idea that anything less than exceptional service is not accepted.
We excel in special events and have a flair for the details and desire to leave the guests in awe of their dining experience that my talents and experience brings to any size table. We are full insured. You can also find us on Facebook.
I have a passion for cooking and believe that a dinner table is where happiness is found and is the foundation to build relationships. Food can be magical!
