Chef Ryan was outstanding! I was in search of a private Chef just a week away from my best friends birthday at their lake house. I was so lucky to find out he was available! The search for a talented chef in this area was already a needle in the haystack… When it came to planning our event Ryan was very responsive and open minded to the factors given by location and our guests. With one of my friends being allergic to nuts AND dairy, I thought this could be a total nightmare. But Chef Ryan accommodated each and every person! I gave him full trust to curate a menu of multiple courses for the 12 of us and wow he really impressed our party! He even showed up early to set up and cook before the stated time. Flavor bombs galore of snack bites was the perfect way to begin of our meal. The cold artichoke preparation was so delicious. His pasta was a perfect Al dente, and the sunflower pesto was unreal. We cannot forget the beef cheeks, oh so tender and that sauce WOW (I have to get the recipe!). Chef left the kitchen spotless and clean at the end of the evening. I didn’t have to hire a cleaning service the next day, as many of us would! My friends and I cannot wait to have Chef Ryan over to cook for us again. Thank you for your warm hospitality and unforgettable meal!

We hired Ryan to create a menu and cook for a large family reunion weekend we had in April 2021. The first night we wanted passed heavy apps and the second night we wanted a full dinner and something fancier. Ryan did an amazing job. Not only was the food delicious, it was highly creative and he was able to meet our dietary needs as we have some vegans and vegetarians in the family. He did not disappoint the Carnivores however! He made the most amazing marinated tenderloin that our guests raved about. He sent menus for approval beforehand, and I knew exactly what to expect which took the stress out of it for me. He was punctual and there was plenty of food for our guests. Everyone was hugely impressed with him and enjoyed having him at our event. I’ll be hiring him again for our holiday party. I highly recommend Ryan.

I first hired Chef Ryan in February 2020 and have hired him for various dinners and events four times since. He does a great job of bringing life to my ideas and never lets me down when hired for events where he gets to have more of his own creative input. His menus are always varied, with a focus on in-season produce and locally-sourced products when possible. The plating is beautiful and my guests are always impressed. Chef Ryan loves what he does and it shows.

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

    Starting a dialogue via direct message, text or email is essential. I find that while phone conversations are important, I like to work with my clients as much as possible via email to ensure I am able to reference all details covered for the event.

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

    I have a formal culinary education that took place in Denver, Provence (France), and Piedmont (Italy) that gave me a great foundation to build upon in my early culinary career.

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

    My family always inspired me to become a chef. Plenty of my younger years were spent in the kitchen helping my mother, father and brother, cooking homemade meals that we loved. I also watched my brother (10 years my elder) grow through restaurants, eventually becoming a chef as well. As soon as I took my first job as a cook, I knew this was my calling.
