Chef James and sous chef/server cooked for my mom’s 80th birthday at our family’s home this past Saturday. We could not be more pleased. He made the process streamlined from start to finish. We were happy with the cost. The food was phenomenal. The great job in cleaning up was the icing on the cake. We will not hesitate calling again on Chef James.

James was wonderful to work with. The food was fantastic (many people said it was the best steak they had EVER had - it melted in your mouth)! We had a party of 18, & he accommodated everybody's likes, dislikes, & allergies. He offered numerous options for each food course & we were able to narrow it down & tweak items for personal preferences. Watching him prepare, cook, & serve each course was amazing! He provides all of his own cookware, tableware, silverware, etc. My kitchen was just as clean, if not cleaner, than when he came. With James in charge of the food, I was able to totally relax & enjoy visiting with everyone. I would definitely recommend James & would not hesitate to hire him again! Thanks, James!

Details: Birthday or anniversary party • Cocktail hour or hors d'oeuvres • Dinner • Dessert • Non-alcoholic drinks • Alcoholic drinks • American - formal • Plated meal • Yes, full service • Home • Yes, full kitchen • Fewer than 20 guests • Plates, utensils and glasses • Premium (high end ingredients)

This was my first experience with a personal chef. Chef James was extremely helpful in guiding me through. He asked what types of food we would like and what flavors we like. He put together a menu based on our inputs. All of our guests raved about the cuisine and the experience.

FAQs

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Dinner party cooking classes for 8-12 people, where I demo a part of the meal during the appetizer portion of the event and then afterwards the guests get to dine on the item that they just learned how to make.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Know what you want, and be realistic about what you can afford, work with a caterer that will work with you and make your dreams a reality.
