Brian created an amazing fall in New England inspired menu for our intimate wedding in the mountains of New Hampshire. He was very easy to work with and our guests were raving all night and the next day about everything he and his team prepared. Unbelievable charcuterie board designed to impress along with wonderful hors d'oeuvres to kick off the evening - followed by quite the plated dinner complete with a palate cleanser prior to the surf and turf consisting of freshly caught scallops and grass fed beef tenderloin - topped off with pumpkin creme brulee, chocolate fondue, and fall themed cupcakes. The food was melt in your mouth quality and the service was impeccable! My now wife and I would recommend Brian to anyone looking for a private chef and will certainly be using him in the future!

Details: Brunch / dinner party • 21 - 35 guests • Dinner • Cocktail hour / hors d'oeuvres • Dessert • Premium (high end ingredients) • American - formal • Italian • French • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

Catered our outdoor wedding- meal was well planned (so easy to work with and create the menu), used high quality foods, organic meats, and was the most talked about part of our wedding. Brian prepared tasty and amazing appetizers to start our meal which led next to the meal itself. Satisfied both meat eaters and vegetarians alike. All were happily fed and satiated. Wedding cake was made to order and even had edible orchids - perfect for our theme. Amount of food was perfect, execution and delivery of food was done as promised, prices were highly reasonable, and Brian and staff were easy and flexible to work with. He prepared food for 125 people, but it felt like he was cooking for just us. Brian went above and beyond to meet our needs and the vision we had for the food at our wedding exceeded what we had wished for. We highly recommend him for any catering event and would gladly ask him to cater for us again in the future.

Brian helped to serve up a wonderful surprise birthday dinner for my Aunt’s 65th birthday! Using his own flavors, straight from his gardens, the menu was an amazing explosion of flavors. He prepared a five course meal, on-site that left us beyond satisfied and with a wonderful memory! I would highly recommend Brian, and personally look forward to an opportunity to work with him again!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 6 - 10 guests • Dinner • Dessert • Standard (basic ingredients) • Mediterranean / Middle Eastern • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

An absolutely perfect night. Brian was so professional, prepared and friendly. We had lobsters and steamers. We all agreed that it was the best we've ever had. Could not have imagined it going better. Thank you, Brian!

Great Chef, personality, technically spot on with flavors, organized from large functions and dinners for two. Mentor, friend and teacher.

FAQs

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I started working with food at the age of nine. My mother was a caterer and she loved to cook. I used to stand on milk crates and slice mushrooms and peel potatoes. She passed on to me her passion for cooking and I have never lost it. In my early years I apprenticed all over the Greater Boston area in some of the better restaurants and hotels in the city. I also have a great passion for teaching the culinary arts to others. I have taught culinary at Le Cordon Bleu, Atlantic Culinary Academy, and the University of New Hampshire.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I do a lot of private dinner parties in peoples homes. I have done many weddings and rehearsal dinners.

  • What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

    I am a very personable chef. I am easy to work with and my goal is always to exceed the expectations of others. I am a family man with strong work ethics and integrity. I love talking with people about food. All food is a gift, knowing how too properly prepare is also a gift. People should feel good after they eat, if the food was properly prepared and all the nutrients in the food were preserved.
