The event was a small surprise bachelorette party gathering. Tyler was easy to work with and the guests thoroughly enjoyed every dish. I would absolutely use his services again.

Tyler made my quarantine birthday very special! We hired him for a private dinner at our residence and requested a vegan meal! The dinner was delicious and Tyler was extremely professional with high quality ingredients! He even made vegan pastry which was awesome! Would highly recommend him for gatherings or events!

We had the BEST time with Chef Tyler!! From the very beginning, Tyler answered every question we had quickly and thoughtfully. We were suppose to go to Nashville for a bachelorette, but had to change the location due to travel restrictions. We were so excited when Tyler was able to bring a taste of Nashville to Newport! We had a 3 course meal, in addition to tasty and refreshing drinks! Everything was DELICIOUS, and we even had tons of leftovers that we ate the next day!! The price was also very reasonable, and he even adjusted the price up to two days before when a few girls could no longer come on the trip. Hurry up and book Tyler for your next event!!

Tyler was amazing! I reached out to Tyler to set up a small dinner party for my wife's 40th birthday. My wife eats gluten free and Tyler hit the nail on the head with his menu selections. Tyler stayed in contact leading up to the event and when he arrived he was very professional and was very responsive to the requests we made of him. Every course was plated elegantly and his explanations of each menu item was super informational. As the night was winding down he did a great job also making sure the kitchen was left better than he found it. I highly recommend Tyler and I will be using his services again in the near future.

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

    My pricing is based on a per person price and is highly dependent upon the type of meal being served. For example, a 5 course classical French menu will be more expensive per person than a 3 course nouveau American "casual" dining experience. I am willing to work with a customer on pricing, all while maintaining a high level of service.

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

    I will begin by explaining the menu in detail to make sure the customer understands what they will be receiving. After finalizing the menu, I will explain what area or items I will need (e.g. kitchen space, plates, cutlery, etc.) and what I will bring myself (knives, cutting boards, pots, pans, etc.) Finally, I make sure the new customer has an understanding of what services I will be providing.

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

    I graduated from Johnson & Wales University in 2018 where I received both an Associate's degree in culinary arts and a Bachelor's degree in Culinary Nutrition with concentrations in food science and dietetics.
