What could I say that captures ALL the wonderful ways Chef David made our anniversary dinner special - the food was exceptional! The conversation was easy-going! Amidst COVID & safety concerns, Chef David wore a mask the entire time and had our kitchen clean & organized with containers and utensils for everything. We will DEFINITELY be welcoming him back to our home in the future. Thank you Chef David!!!

David is fantastic! My husband and I have been working with him for about three months now and he is extremely reliable and warm. He takes feedback very well and does a great job preparing meals. You can tell he loves what he does!

    All Grand Personal Chef engagements start with an in-home consultation. It’s important we learn about your tastes, preferences, and all of your dietary needs and restrictions. A cooking time and schedule that best fits your needs will be decided upon, whether it is once a week or multiple times a week. On the scheduled day of cooking Chef Welch will do all of the grocery shopping based on your choice of retailer. We strive to use the freshest ingredients available. All food preparation is done in your home and packaged in labeled reheatable containers. When Chef Welch is done with cooking your kitchen will be left spotless!
