I ramp up my team based on your needs ( 6 guests or over I require assistance for example). Family gatherings, high teas, dinner party with friends, let’s dream together! Blessed to have many regular clients ( Dr. Drew Pinsky and family, PGA, and other tri state area families). References happily provided. I also do Corporate Events. Need a chef for a demo or dinner for you and your clients? I have done many … let’s talk. Breakouts / offsite team building retreats / I love to get creative and exceed your vision. Table settings/ scapes are a big part of what I do. This is often included in my fees ( unless unusual or exact design elements have to be purchased to create your theme). The vibe of your table / buffet is crucial to making an event memorable. Winner 2018 Long Island Food Critics Award. When you hire me as a personal chef, you are hiring someone that cares as much as about your guests as YOU do. I have been a personal chef for 15+ years - cooking and entertaining is in my DNA. I believe that INTUITION, PASSION, TALENT and PROFESSIONALISM go hand in hand in the kitchen. Let me be a member of your team and lets dazzle your family, friends and guests. ** on the new side of Thumbtac, but not new to the personal chef world.

Our company reach out to Chef Jimmy to assist with preparing food samples for a 3 day trade show. Chef was very accommodating to our needs. He was a great addition to our team and cooked our samples perfectly. He even took it upon himself to create a new recipe which we used at the show. You can't exhibit in Philadelphia and not serve Cheesesteak! We look forward to working with Chef Jimmy in the future.

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 11 - 20 guests • Cocktail hour / hors d'oeuvres • Standard (basic ingredients) • American - casual • Vegetarian or vegan • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

We absolutely LOVED Chef Jimmy! Not only was his food absolutely incredible, but he made the experience so special for our bride to be! Each course was beautifully designed and executed, the table was designed into a mystical fairytale - perfect for our “Midsummer Night Dream” theme. Every one of our guests raved about the food and it was the perfect ending to our bachelorette weekend away. Chef Jimmy, we can’t thank you enough for making our weekend one we’ll never forget!

We had the utmost pleasure of having Jimmy in our home for a special Anniversary dinner! He was extremely accommodating and made us a special menu for me and my wife, and even our 4 year old son enjoyed it! The quality of the food and the culinary experience was outstanding! Jimmy went above and beyond to pick us high-quality, fresh meat and seafood. Jimmy will become a regular in our home, and we highly highly recommend him as a private chef!!!

FAQs

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

    Lets talk about your budget. I can be very flex on budget when I know exactly what you need. Very willing to work with you and brainstorm the best way to make the most of your budget.

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

    Phone chat to get an idea of details, then I will send you some ideas / suggestions / menu. A deposit holds your date.

    Trained in many kitchens and live event companies over the last 20 years. I have a Long Island Food Critics Award. I also own a bread pudding company (based on my Great Grandmother's Bread Pudding Recipe!!)
