Experience with Oscar was terrific, beyond my expectations. He crafted a wonderful Italian 4 course meal for my father in law's 70th birthday - the courses were delicious and presentation was impeccable - on par with top restaurants. Oscar is very friendly and hospitable - we enjoyed having him in our home and serving us this delicious meal. Communication on logistics prior to dinner was seamless - Oscar was very responsive to our questions and needs. Will certainly be using his services again.Apr 20, 2017Verified
Chef Oscar is absolutely incredible and I cannot recommend him highly enough - we had him and his chef Chris do a four course dinner for a group of 10 for my fiancé's birthday dinner - Asian inspired with chicken satay, short rib, wasabi mashed potatoes... one of the best meals. He came on time, prepared and left the kitchen cleaner than before- so pleasant to work with, already planning the time we can work together!Mar 11, 2017Verified

- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was fifteen when I first started working as a bus boy at Papa Marc Bistro. Since then I never left the field. I moved up to waiter and then one day decided that I wanted to learn how to make pizza. My best friend Mario opened up Marra's restaurant and I worked my way up. Twice a week making pizza and four times a week in the Pantry station. Before you know it I was sauteing Gnocci pesto and making Chicken Sorrentino:) There was no turning back...I thank God I stuck to the restaurant industry. There's nothing I love more than making people happy through the dishes I put out.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?Well I recently did a catering job for a church out in Cheshire CT, called Calvary Life Worship Center. There was about 30 people from the church. All pastors and elders with wives. It was a blessing to serve people from the church who are not very familiar with gourmet cuisine. I served mixed greens with crumbled goat cheese, dried pomegranate, roasted walnuts, and diced red onion in a white balsamic reduction....Poached Chicken wrapped in prosciutto stuffed with Italian sausage(fresh herbs) than sliced into medallions...Overall everyone was happy and it was great to help out the church.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?I would suggest you figure out your budget and then decide what kind of food you would want your personal chef too cook for you. Some people have allergies and have personal diet restrictions such as vegan or gluten free. You would want a chef that specializes in those certain areas. I myself am a gourmet chef that specializes in Italian Cuisine. I would be perfect for a party of four or eight where you would want too really impress your guests.....or maybe even a romantic dinner:) You should definately do some research. And last you should see that they have their ServeSafe certificate which shows they know how too handle food properly.
