Rene was absolutely wonderful. Our family could not stop raving about the meal he thoughtfully prepared for us. He was so easy to work with, responsive to questions and so accommodating to our cuisine preferences and went above and beyond with the actual meal. I loved working with him and would absolutely hire him again for future events! You will not be disappointed if you work with Rene!

Chef Rene was quick to respond, has integrity, and connections. He's honest, helping us decide on a class versus having him cook for us, and he put us in touch with someone who is going to teach us some tips and tricks. Thank you, Chef Rene!

FAQs

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

    Current Discounts can be viewed on my profile introduction. Prices vary and can be viewed on my website. Meal Preps: $250-$800 Private Dinners: $125+ Per Person In-Home Parties: $1000 minimum Company Parties: $3000 minimum Weddings: $3000 minimum

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

    I start with a questionnaire to be filled out so I can understand the client's likes, dislikes, allergies, diets, and whatever I need to create the right menu or recipe. Next is the Menu/Recipe development and I will get in touch with my clients to assure they have best possible menu for them for their occasion or for their meal plans. A 50% deposit will be addressed. Book a date for the appointment and I will get my ingredients fresh on that day on my way to the client or hosts' home where I will use their kitchen to prep, cook, and put a way the food. The final part is the clean up after my service! Then comes the final payment and feel free to tip!

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

    I have an Associate of Arts Degree in Culinary Arts. I am ServSafe Certified and have Food & Beverage Manager Certificate. I have been in the culinary field since 2012 and I am still cooking it up! My classical training comes from high school and college when I was in Guam. I did few savory, and more pastries when I was back home. 2016 I took a job for Norwegian Cruise Line where I focused all aspects of savory and hot foods which made me develop more into a hot side chef. I came to Austin, TX in 2018, got a chef position then I left to start my own private service!
