Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I'm Chef Daniel D'Alessio. As an avid lover of the sights, smells, and tastes of endless possible food combinations, I have decided to make the creation of food my life. Working in such places like the Raven And The Peach in Fairhaven and at Rumson Country Club in Rumson NJ, I immersed myself in French, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese cooking styles. I have over 10 years of experience in fine dining and catering. Marketing myself as a private chef, I will design and create a customized menu for my clients. We handle everything including a romantic evening at home for 2, intimate dinner parties, cocktail parties, weddings and big catered events. We were awarded Thumbtacks #1 Home Caterer and Top Pro in NY and NJ for 2015, 2016, 2017, and recently 2018. It is a great honor and we strive to continue to be the best of the best. Hire us and get a chance to relax at your next party, your in good hands.

Chef Dan - Private Chef and Caterer's reply
Please disregard this review being that I only spoke with this person once and they were not happy with the sample menu/pricing that I sent them. I did not do any work for this client.

FAQs

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

    Every menu is different, so there is no set pricing. We start our cocktail parties at $60 per head, buffets at $75, and multi-course plated meals start at $125 per person.

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

    We first speak through thumbtack and then set up a day and time to speak over the phone and discuss the event. I then send a sample menu with pricing over to the client. If they decide to go with me I send out the catering contract to be signed and returned with a deposit for the date.

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

    I have been in the industry for over 10 years. I graduated at the top of my culinary class and have worked in many fine dinning establishments.
