Wedding and Event Catering

We were hosting our team dinner event and challenged Chef in serving dinner in a remote location with no operational kitchen. He impressed us immensely - the presentation, flavors and overall menu were outstanding. We loved the flexibility and creativity he offered and our guests were extremely pleased.

I had a fantastic experience working with Z'Chef (Roy) - he was attentive, kind, knowledgable, and of course a talented chef! Roy created personalized meals over the span of 3 days so I had the opportunity to enjoy multiple dishes and each one was delicious! I cannot say enough about his attention to detail; everything from 'plating' the food on warm dishes, to tailoring meals to suit our tastes and dietary needs. I am convinced he can make anything one can imagine - and it will taste amazing! I highly recommend Z'Chef for anyone looking for individualized, high quality, and excellent tasting food!

We had a serious gluten allergy in our group and Chef Roy made sure everything was gluten free and delicious. He was awesome!

Roy was amazing from start to finish. I planned a surprise dinner for my husband and from the planning until the time he left my home, he made everything easy. The food was exceptional. My mouth is still watering from the glazed pair and goat cheese appetizer. He held good conversation and also gave us space to go relax. Will be booking him again and have also spread word to our families and they will be booking as well. Thank you Roy!

Background Check

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

    I prefer to talk over texting, emailing, etc. I like to get a better understanding of my client's need as soon as possible. This provides an easier experience for everyone. From personal chef service to catering opportunities, there is too much room for error, and I try to avoid that, so there are no surprises.

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

    Executive Chef – Christian Retreat Conference Center, Bradenton, Florida. 1978-1981 Guest Chef – Classic Hotel, Leysin, Switzerland. 1999-2010 Executive Chef & Owner – Adam2 Café & Good Cookie, Kutztown, Pennsylvania. 2004-2014 Production Chef – Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill, Reading, Pennsylvania. 2014

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I've been cooking since I was a teenager and from my own cultural genesis to 40 years later, I come with a wide range of culinary experience and international travel equipping me to successfully execute your culinary needs. My passion in life is to use this vast experience in the culinary arts by bringing to the table, whether small or large, a focus on your individual tastes, desires and personal goals. I believe your table should have a place of predominance in your home as the centerpiece of your life.
