Personal Chef

Gerry provided personal chef services for my family and friends who were staying at my home for a week; he provided breakfast and dinner for 10-12 people. I was really impressed from the beginning for his level of professionalism, punctuality, and the high quality of the meals he provided for us.You can tell he really loves what he does. Everyone was delighted and I am sure we will be asking him to help us again in the very near future. I highly recommend him.

Chef Gerard was an absolute delight. We hired him to cook a special dinner for my sisters bachelorette weekend and the whole evening was memorable, not least due to the absolutely superb food. From the initial contact, I let chef Gerard know that this was a big outside of my experience, and he guided me to choose styles of foods and menu items to fit a theme of ‘street food tapas.’ On the evening of the event he arrived at 5 on the dot with his sous chef Ellie and they got to work whipping up amazing dishes including perfectly cooked shrimp al ajillo, Thai spring rolls, tacos, three unique salads and the best gluten free apple crisp I have ever had. There were so many special sauces that elevated the food to next level good. They left the kitchen sparkling clean and disappeared into the night. We will never forget this special evening.

Chef Gerard and his team did a wonderful job cooking a private dinner for my husband's 50th birthday. We rented a vacation house so I was unsure if it contained all the service-ware and cookware required. They did a great job of using what was available and produced some really amazing dishes for our party.

FAQs

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

    Pricing is customized to the clients budget, needs and tastes. Since I don't carry a inventory of ingredients like a restaurant or catering hall, I prefer not offering a typical menu package. Its a very personalized service. However, usually for smaller parties and dinners, the per person food budget includes menu consultation, cost of ingredients/food shopping, personal chef cooking and kitchen cleanup. It typically doesn't include a server or bartender. For parties of 6 or more I recommend a server, unless its a buffet or the client prefers to be more hands on with table set up, pouring beverage and table service.

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

    As a personal chef, before I offer menu suggestions, I prefer to learn as much about my new customers (especially the guest or guests of honor) and their food preferences and cuisine interests and those of their invited guests. Its always helpful to gather in advance their likes, dislikes, allergies, preferred flavor profiles (i.e. spicy, mild, Asian, Mediterranean, Latin American, Middle Eastern, European, American, Italian, French). It also helps to know what they enjoy eating most (i.e seafood, beef, poultry, game, pork, lamb, vegetables etc..

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

    I’m a graduate with honors from CIA in Hyde Park, NY. I’m also serve safe certified.
