Introduction: Welcome. I'm Alex. I’m passionate about co-creating a luxurious fine dining experience with you so that we can make a special occasion memorable for years to come! Anniversaries, birthdays, business meetings, and special occasions are guaranteed to be elegant, effortless and enjoyable. You'll spend precious time with the most important people in your life, and I'll take care of the menu creation, shopping, cooking and all cleaning. I graduated from the Pittsburgh Le Cordon Bleu school of culinary arts and have over 15 years of culinary experience ranging from trendy casual to fine dining. I like chatting on the phone with people whether your booking an event or not so let's talk! Cheers! PLEASE NOTE: FOR DINNERS THAT HAVE 3 OR LESS PEOPLE I CHARGE A $300.00 MINIMUM JUST FOR THE SERVICE. GROCERIES ARE BILLED SEPARATELY. (simply because each dinner takes 3 days in total for me to execute. 1st day is for shopping, 2nd day is for prep, and the 3rd day is the actual dinner.) Thank you for your understanding in this regard. 🙏

I recently hired Alex for a Bachelorette Party Dinner for 15. It was a wonderful experience. Alex was extremely responsive leading up to the event and very prompt in his initial response. He was extremely professional and made a great meal with a wonderful presentation. And he left the Kitchen spotless! I would definitely hire Alex again and would recommend him to any friends and family looking for a personal chef.

Chef Alex was top notch. Great to work with in preparation of the day. Very professional and friendly. Felt like have a family member over to cook dinner. Of course food was amazing. All in all highly recommend. Price was very reasonable.

As a 40th birthday gift for my sister, Chef Alex cooked dinner for my sister and her husband in their home. He was so nice and professional leading up to the event and was very accommodating and creative to develop a menu for my sister's dietary restrictions. My sister and brother-in-law were very pleased with their dinners and said Alex was down to Earth and great to talk to. The food was presented beautifully and was delicious. Alex put a lot of thought, time, and effort into making the evening an unforgettable one. We will definitely book him again for other upcoming birthdays/ holidays. Having Alex cook in your home for you is a better alternative to going out to a restaurant, especially during a pandemic!

Chef Alex was fabulous! We threw a small 40th Anniversary party for my parents with a 3 course french inspired meal. It was high-quality, delicious, and convenient! Chef Alex came to the house completely prepared, so we could all relax and enjoy the meal! Alex was very responsive throughout the entire process and gave us plenty of choices to plan the menu. Will definitely be using him again!

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

    Each event is unique and depending on the guest count, type of service, dietary restrictions and other variables the price can vary. I usually quote on a per person basis when there is 5 or more people. I charge a $300.00 minimum for 4 or less people. Also the cost of groceries is calculated and billed separately from the per person price. Contact me and I'd love to talk to you further about your event's pricing!

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

    I like to start out by finding out exactly what your needs are. Are you celebrating a birthday or anniversary? How can I be of service to make the event go as perfect as possible? Maybe its a casual meal served family style. Perhaps it's more of an elegant multi course fine dining type of evening complete with matching wines. Whatever it may be, I guarantee together we can make a special occasion memorable for years to come!

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

    I am a Pittsburgh Le Cordon Bleu graduate with over 15 years of industry experience ranging from trendy casual, catering, to fine dining and beyond.
