Chris prepared an amazing dinner for a mini reunion for a group of 7. We wanted a 5-star dining experience but with 6 kids among the group didn’t want to rush home for babysitters or be rushed out of a restaurant where we couldn’t talk as freely. Chris was very responsiNov 4, 2018Verified

Thank you so much Kathleen. I had a great time. I hope he's cooking meals for you.
EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE! My special event required specific requirements that were met with ease by Executive Chef Chris Spear. From beginning to end, Chef Spear was top notch and exceeded my expectations. His professionalism, easy-going personality, and ability to understand and execute exactly what I was looking for earns him a 10 star rating in my book! Utilizing our local farmer’s market, Chef Spear managed the selection of fresh produce, herbs and protein, and then provided an engaging- interactive food prep and presentation for our guests. A 3-course menu was crafted with ease featuring seasonal staples and every guest was amazed by the taste and presentation. As far as cleanup is concerned, the kitchen was left in better shape than when we began. All in all, a truly memorable experience - everyone asked for his card. Executive Chef Chris Spear will continue to be first choice for our special events.Aug 15, 2017VerifiedChristopher S.'s reply
Thanks Lori. I had so much fun. It was a great group. I'm looking forward to our next event together. Chris
Chris delivered an excellent meal at an excellent price - we had a wonderful anniversary dinner. Chris was very responsive throughout the planning, and offered a lot of options, and we were extremely happy with the choices we made. Recommended for anyone, but especially for households with kids and pets - Chris was easygoing and accommodating in both cases.Sep 9, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Plan on $100 per person for a dinner (minimum of 2 people) or a 2 hr cooking lesson. With an increase in attendees, the cost per person goes down. I use the best quality products available to me, and theres a large range in food costs. Do you want the crimini mushrooms that are $3 a pound, or peak-season morels that cost $50 a pound. Let me know what your budget is and Ill work with you.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?As part of my quote, I attach a brief questionnaire for my potential customers to fill out and email back to me. It gives me an idea of what they like and don't like for ingredients and cuisines, as well as any dietary preferences or allergies. Within 24 hours I will email some proposed menu items. We can either discuss final details via email or over the phone. Then I'm ready to cook.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a BS in culinary arts from Johnson & Wales University and have been working in kitchens for more than 20 years. I'm a current member of the Baltimore chapter of the American Culinary Federation. Every year I attend the StarChefs International Chefs Congress in NYC where I learn the newest trends and participate in hands-on workshops with the best chefs such as Masaharu Morimoto, Dominique Crenn & Michael Solomonov.
