Introduction
Hello food lover! This is my 24th year as your Personal Chef. Small Weddings + Birthdays + 1 on 1 Cooking Lessons + Parties + Corporate Events + Cooking Lessons for Groups + Anniversaries + Winter + Spring + Summer and Fall + Holidays. 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. And it's not just about the food. This is a personalized experience. Gatherings should be festive and fun. Whether it's a romantic notion or just a way for friends and families to gather, I want to be your personal chef. My goal when we break bread, is to make the taste amazing, to entice you with your senses, and help you "eat with your eyes" by making my food 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.

Our family gathered at our home in Exeter to celebrate a special birthday. The thought of taking 6 adults and a newborn baby to a restaurant was daunting, and I'm so glad I searched on Thumbtack for a personal chef. Chef Colin responded with interest very quickly, and was most helpful with suggestions and sample menus for our family dinner. The price was very reasonable, and he arrived promptly at our home as planned. Food was wonderful, and served with great presentation. We all enjoyed the complexity of flavors and variety of fresh ingredients. Chef Colin and assistant Michael fulfilled all of our expectations and more for the quality of food and humor during our meal experience! I highly recommend Chef Colin for your next event, and look forward to having him out again for the next "big birthday"!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 6 - 10 guests • Dinner • I'm flexible • Dessert • Cold beverages (alcoholic) • Barbecue • I'm flexible • Only once • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

Chef Colin was awesome! We hired him for my sister's bachelorette party- the food was amazing, his energy was great and all of the girls loved it. Not only that, Colin had major surgery the day before and still insisted on cooking for us, and did so with a smile. Couldnt have asked for better service from him and his team.
