Angela R.

Personal Chef

There isn't enough space to share how awesome Nick and his crew were. We were in Vegas celebrating my 60th birthday and he surpassed my expectations. The food was absolutely delicious. His presentation was awesome. My guests loved the dinner. He always replied promptly and made the process very easy. If you're looking for an amazing chef..STOP...look no further. Nick is the Man!

Wedding and Event Catering

I hired Nick to come to our home and prepare a special birthday dinner for my wife’s 65th birthday. He and his assistant, Raylyn, were friendly, professional and very fluid. After they arrived I realized my 11-year old granddaughter didn’t like part of the menu I had worked with Nick to create. On the fly Nick created a similar dish, sending his assistant to pickup new components she would love. The food was amazing. We opted to have it served on our own dishware. My wife and family kept saying they felt like they were on Top Chef. After dessert they cleaned up my kitchen so we could enjoy the evening. I would hire this company again and highly recommend Nick.

Wedding and Event Catering

This guy is the real deal! I did a lot of research for my wedding before I decided on Nick. I can tell you the tasting was absolutely phenomenal and thought if he could pull that off on a grand scale I would be impressed. He blew me and our guests all away. My friends are still talking about how incredible the appetizers were. I got the crabcakes, bacon wrapped dates, tuna tartar, meatballs and spinach cheese dip whatever it was... it was heaven in a bowl!!! The entire meal was fresh, flavorful and elegant. We had a backyard wedding that seemed like a royal courtyard feast with them. Nick brought an entire team and they were so professional, helpful, they cleaned up perfectly, were on time, and he even went above and beyond to bring my husband and I special appetizers while we were doing pictures so that we didn’t miss out on any. They even set our dinner table with a full plate, appetizers, soup and drinks so that when we entered the reception party it was all done. I didn’t even ask for that they just went above and beyond! I’m so grateful I chis company and I would hire again in a second. If I had money for a private chef he would be it!!! But until then we have the leftovers that we are savoring.

Nick was awesome! I needed a personal chef on short notice for a group of 10 for my boss and his family. He put together an amazing menu and was super professional and responsive. I would highly recommend Nick!

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

    With all due respect; be ready to spend money. A lot of people think finding a chef/catering company to provide service will save them money. Most times that is simply not the case.

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

    Typically, I like to have a thorough consultation to go over guest counts, logistics, flavor profile, menu selection, etc. That way you get what you want and ultimately your event turns out better than you can ever imagine. Once we agree to terms, I require at least 50% up-front (100% preferable). Once this portion is behind us, it's smooth sailing and time for you to relax and let me take care of everything else.

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

    I started my journey at a middle college for culinary arts in Denver, Co.. Ultimately, I then went through the school of hard knocks. I worked with many talented chefs that have bestowed their best onto me. Serv safe certified, health card, CPR certified, CEC
