Introduction: Being a leader and giving back to my community is why I started cooking. “Genuine love and passion for food is contagious.” So through Chef Life NW I get to express myself and pass on my love and passion for food. Everything I do is to help me be a better chef. Being a kitchen manager helps me be a better business owner, which helps me be a better teacher and leader. I focus on doing things the right way and building lasting relationships through food!

We used Chef life Northwest LLC for our 15 year wedding anniversary dinner party, it was phenomenal! The way him and his sous chef enhanced the ambience with their energy and professionalism was unbelievable. They totally know how to take the kitchen by storm. The food OMG was amazing! They met every requirement, and every request that was made a reality. From the starter course to dessert, simply amazing! No doubt we will be using Chef life Northwest LLC again

The food is amazing! Not only that, Mr. Tay is very personable and just a likable person. What I love the most is the diversity of the food. He can cook anything! If you ever need catering services, and want to work with someone professional, and cares about the quality of their food, 10/10 recommend!

Chef Tay did an amazing job catering our wedding. He was a savor to us as our previous caterer cancled only a week before our wedding day. Chef tay showed up with a smile on and helped to make our day so special. He is professional, communicative, and over all such a nice guy. Our food was delicious, our guests were pleased as so were we. We had a wonderful experience and we would work with Chef Tay again in a heartbeat!
