Chef Pieter is our go to for large family events. He designs a menu that works for all age groups from 70's to 2yr old's. He is a very personable guy and the family really enjoys it when we say that Pieter is cooking!

Hiring Chef Pieter was a memorable experience! I explained what food my wife liked, and he created the perfect French/Japanese fusion menu for her 40th birthday. He used higher quality ingredients and entertained us with his awesome personality. I would definitely do this again without any hesitation! Thank you Chef Pieter!

Pieter is a consummate professional with a heartfelt passion for food and flavor. Throughout the planning process, he presented so many options as his knowledge encompasses numerous flavor profiles. Our guests were glued to his entertaining and educational explanations. They were so thankful and impressed to have fresh quality food made in our home. He really created an incredible experience for everyone. We have hired Pieter many times and each time he seems to exceed expectations. Looking forward to our next adventure in food together.

Background Check

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

    I prefer to use the finest local, organic and seasonal ingredients possible. My fee generally starts at $150 per person. This includes the initial menu consultation.

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

    For a new customer I like to schedule an initial call to try and zero in on the vision the client has. If the client is open to suggestion can help co create the meal/event.

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

    I have worked for amazing mentors that challenged me to constantly grow. My real training came from working in kitchens where I learned to nurture my raw talent, learn to work hard and be fearless.
