    Me and my siblings had Chef Damien over for a 12 person meal, to celebrate our parents 70th Bdays. He was OUTSTANDING to say the least. The quality of service, the quality of food and the quality of knowledge and professionalism was 2nd to none. I had NO IDEA chef would be this good. The risotto dish he made was EASILY the best risotto anybody EVER had. The pace at which he served each dish was perfect. I will be using chef in the future for his services!

About this pro

It's quite simple. Plain and simply, my food is the BEST. I don't need any more niche than that. I don't skimp on ingredients or time it takes to make food great. And since this is a side biz...? I don't charge much. You pay for the ingredients and my time. That's it! Flexibility is another reason my service stands out to my customers. Over the past two years, I've heard many great things about working with me. The one that stands out the most though is how flexible and easy I am to work with. I can adjust anything the customer wants the day before or even the day of an event. Extra guest or two? No problem! Want to add another course? Can do! Need a server? Just ask! I accommodate events from 2 to 200 size and still maintain food quality that stands above the rest. Hearing people tell me who good the food was! Serious! That's what I LIVE for! Hours of toil behind a hot stove for a "wow...(sigh)...this is AMAZING!"

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      Nope. It's really quite simple. Tell me what you want to spend and I'll blow you away with good food no matter what your budget.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I make it easy. I ask the customer what they wish to eat since I can make pretty much anything. If they aren't sure yet what they want, I offer them a sample menu of several seasonal menu items to choose from. From there, they tell me what they what and I quote a price. Simple
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I have an associates degree in culinary arts from Kendall College (one of the top 5 culinary schools in the U.S.) and a bachelor's degree in business management from the University of Phoenix. As Executive Chef of Research and Development for Harvest Food Group, I DO stay up on the latest food trends :) I work with marketing executives to see what the latest restaurants and food trucks are doing. I am also a member of IFT (Institution of Food Technologists) so I take courses to stay up on trends and food safety. I also attend many trade shows throughout the year where I rub elbows with other companies doing cool stuff
    Coverage Area for Cheftekar Catering, Consulting and Personal Chef Service is about 50+ miles of Des Plaines, IL.
