Ryan was very easy to work with. Quick responses, great suggestions to complete menu. Arrived on time and everything was clean when he left. Food was EXCELLENT!!! I didn't know anything about Ryan when I hired him but he was very responsive so we took the chance. Everything - down to the pesto on the charcuterie - was absolutely wonderful. We had a party of eight adults with greatly varying tastes and everyone loved everything. We also had six young children who were having a great time themselves and Ryan handled it all professionally and patiently. Will definitely hire Ryan again. Highly recommend!!! Thank you again Ryan!

Ryan was the perfect fit for my bachelorette party! He was very professional- allowing us to have our fun while he was preparing our meal. His food was outstanding, and he even wrapped up leftovers and cleaned up when he was finished. Having him come to our AirBNB was perfect, as he was full service and provided all dining ware! I strongly recommend Chef Ryan!

I asked Chef Ryan to make several sides, dressings, dips and appetizers for Easter weekend. All were well received, well prepared, excellent and tasteful. We had crab cakes, mini beef wellingtons, salad vinaigrette dressing, dips, pimento cheese spread, pancake cake and mini soufflés. Every time I needed something or additional assistance, he stepped in to make it happen. Thank you for helping add additional items to my menus Easter weekend. We served 20 people for 3 days and the prepared items were easy and delicious! Highly recommended!

While searching for a private chef for my parent's birthday gift, I had the pleasure of finding Chef Ryan. His reviews speak for themselves. He's a great communicator, and extremely accommodating! I was impressed from start to finish. My parent's absolutely LOVED the menu he created for them. He really took the time to tailor the food to their taste preferences and they couldn't have been more impressed. He was a great conversationalist and a true professional. My parent's and I would highly recommend him to anyone and would love to use his services again! Thank you for the one of a kind experience.

It was truly my pleasure! I had so much fun chatting and cooking . . . I’m not sure it qualified as work.

FAQs

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

    As a default - I’m probably not the cheapest and prefer working with high-end ingredients. . . But I am also very proficient in budget planning and have had tons of experience creatively bridging the gaps between what my clients would like and what their budgets will allow. I will always give you a straight and honest answer. Just ask!

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

    I like to get to know as much as possible about my clients. What they prefer, but more importantly what they do not care for. I really like repeat clients with whom I know preferences well. I always want to create an experience that will not be forgotten

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

    I have been in this industry for 30 years
