Introduction: My personal chef cooking services stands out because I really take my clients needs into consideration. There's no cookie cutter menus, or standard course offerings. I plan & create every menu differently, as each client's needs varies. Not only are you receiving excellent tasting food but also great presentation, and superior customer service. I love being able to meet/speak with prospective clients, and create menus based on their themes and visions. The opportunity to cook up great tasting food while using local, and sustainable ingredients is one that is so fulfilling and not taken for granted.

We had another fabulous meal with chef Tavares to celebrate our birthdays. He is extremely professional and easy to work with whether it is modifying a menu or taking into consideration one person‘s allergies or just having him around. The food was diverse and delicious and the plating as usual artistry. His associate Whitney was a delight to have in the house and the two of them worked together seamlessly yourself a favor and and celebrate in your own home with a wonderful experience. Chef Tavares planned, executed and served a very special meal and his cleanup is fabulous so after a meal replete with aromas and taste and visual artistry you can sit and relive the evening without being concerned with any mess.....a wonderful evening . Thank you , Chef.

My experience with Chef Wood was amazing. He arrived on time and prepared everything as discussed. My guest and I were amazed as to how good the food tasted. We absolutely will be contacting him again in the future. Also his assistance was such a sweet person, she was such a Ray of sunshine. I would recommend that you all contact him for any special events that you have.

Chef Wood was AMAZING! I really can’t say enough great things about our evening. I had an idea, we talked it out and he came up with the best menu. He arrived on time, brought everything he needed and got to work. He was calm and organized. Interacted with guests who asked questions. He was friendly and a joy to have in my home. He served incredible good that all my guests loved. He cleaned up the kitchen before he left and never disrupted the evening. I would use him again in a heartbeat!

Truly one of the best experiences we have ever had. He went absolutely above and beyond my expectations. This was our first time hiring a private chef for my husbands birthday and it was nothing short of amazing. Truly if I could give more stars I would. 110%
