Ryan was fantastic at curating a personal menu for my husband’s 30th birthday dinner, was punctual, friendly, and a phenomenal chef. Dinner was incredible and it was such a cool experience.

Chef Ryan is fantastic, he's food was amazing and he was a welcomed addition to our small gathering! I had to regroup last minute for my boyfriend's 50th birthday with the fires, and he made it so special for us all. It was my first time hiring a personal chef and now with Covid, it's something I will continue to do and I would definitely hire Chef Ryan again!

This guy was worth every penny. We hired chef Ryan for a small 40th birthday dinner party. He outdid himself. Very professional, fun, charismatic and on point for everything we wanted. Our food was picture perfect and so tasty! I would definitely use him again.

    I have a culinary arts degree from Fox Valley Tech in Wisconsin, where I am originally from.
