Personal Chef

Chris was extremely professional and did a great job working in our home kitchen for a small at-home wedding. He was on time and able to feel 11 guests plus 7 staff members. The food was amazing. He cares a lot about the presentation and quality of the food. If you’re looking for a personal chef who takes charge and really drive the menu decisions, Chris is definitely for you!

Chris called me within and hour of my submitting a request for a Personal Chef on Thumbtack. By the end of the day I had a menu and a quote. He worked with me on the menu as it was a surprise for my husband for our 30th Anniversary. We started with a lovely charcuterie that had interesting cheeses and meats we hadn't tried before. Second course was Shrimp cocktail and we were supposed to have Caesar Salad, which is the only thing he forgot. It was a good thing though because we had plenty of food. Chris did not mind that I asked for two different entrees and he had to bring a load of ingredients. My husband had Osso Bucco and I had Lobster. They were both served with polenta, asparagus and carrots. My husbands favorite dessert is ice cream so I asked for hot fudge sundeas. His second favorite is real egg custard eclairs and Chris made everything from scratch, except the ice cream. It was delicious and it was fun watching him make everythin. It was just my husband and me because of the virus, so it turned out to be very romantic and quaint! Thanks Chris for a wonderful evening!

Chef Chris prepared a delicious birthday dinner for 5. He was very helpful in providing options and menu suggestions. Ultimately we decided on a Spanish/Mediterranean inspired meal and he nailed it. Food was delicious and portions were very generous (there was enough to do it again the next night). He brought all of his own equipment, including all the place settings, silverware, glasses and a Sous chef. We were having dinner on a roof top in DC so he had to carry the meal all the way upstairs and up the spiral stair case. I would definitely work with Chris again and recommend him to anyone who wants a memorable experience.

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

    Catering is charged per person. Most other services are charged by the hour.

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

    It depends on the service provided. But since every customer has their own expectations , the process begins with an interview to gain a better understanding of exactly that. The information becomes part of a plan that is tailor-suited to the client's own particular needs and comfort level.

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

    Over 20 years working in professional kitchens, beginning as a dishwasher and moving through the ranks to executive chef.
