Introduction: 4th of July is coming! Please book sooner than later. I have great menus to choose from that will make your holiday soar! Cooking for hungry people like you since the year 2000! I believe that great service is key. This service stands out from others because I actually care and I want you to have a truly wonderful experience. In addition, great seasoning is everything!! Awaken every sense in your mouth, your eyes and your nose with the proper seasoning. It is so important to make it beautiful! In addition to personalized dinners and events, I offer cooking classes. Teaching folks the many ways to cook things better, is a love for myself and what I do. I am also offering discounts of up to 25% off for group cooking classes. As a chef, I am constantly looking for ways to improve my services by simply cooking and learning everything there is to learn about this wonderful trade as a student of life. Talk to me. Let’s make an unforgettable event together.

We had an amazing experience working with Colin. He was a true professional chef. The food was delicious, his prices are right and we had so much food and it was tasty. He was also so easy to work with and communicate with.

Chef Colin Shea was professional and delivered in every aspect. He responded quickly, was very organized, easygoing and personable. He delivered on everything he said and his food delivered as well. Definitely recommend his homemade ice cream as well! Thank you Chef Colin Shea for making my wife’s birthday a memorable one.

Wedding and Event Catering

Chef cooked for us on my wedding day. It was a 11 people reception, only family. He was more than on time as he said and made us a dinner to remember. He was warm and charming with all of us. He gave us more food every time that we asked for with no objection. Chef Colin was very profesional and focused on his work while my family was enjoying every course. He’s a character! I would deeply recommend him to anyone who needs a private Chef that won’t make you feel uncomfortable. Food was really tasty, my family loved the beef and my duck’s blueberry compote was something to never forget! He pleased me with 3 desserts and we had tons of sweets. Dinner last about 2 hours and went really smooth. I would call him again with no doubts! Thanks for our dinner, Chef!

We had an amazing time with Colin! This was our first time using a private chef and we will certainly do it again! Colin worked with me to create a menu that we knew my family would love! He was on time and communicating with me on the day of the event! We loved that he walked us through what he was doing as he cooked, gave us tips and told us funny stories! His food was absolutely delicious!! Such great ingredients and freshness throughout! I wouldn’t hesitate to ask him back and highly recommend his work!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Cooking classes are 150.00 per person, but if you have a group the prices decreases. Meals I provide to a family of four are generally $250.00 plus the cost of groceries per week. Not too bad considering you now have time to spend with your children as they do their homework. Catering weddings and whatnot varies based on your budget.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Hello, once I here you are looking for a chef, I normally reach out to you and ask that you call me so that we may discuss specifics about your event and get you a proper quote.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a personal library of over 200 cookbooks. I stay in touch with colleagues from Johnson & Wales and I am constantly seeking new procedures and food on the internet. Keeping up with trends.
