An advocate of local, sustainable produce, technically manipulated in an Artisanal manner
In creating memorable dining experiences, proper techniques applied to excellent produce are equally important; one, no less than the other. Too often, the challenge for any restaurateur is to make everything in-house. That is why cooking for smaller crowds, notably a small group of diners in a private or remote setting is ideal for chefs. In applying artisanal (that is, hand made) techniques in transforming excellent produce and engaging clients directly, face-to-face in understanding their needs, wants and overall story allows chefs to be successful in providing what customers want, a memorable dining experience. What is as important as knowing where your food comes from, is who is cooking your food.
These principles I hold dear with every cooking session, with every customer I meet. Being able to meet, greet and cook for my customers in person and to see their responses is immediate re-affirmation that I am where I belong.
These are the reasons for starting my own company. These are the reasons why I cook.
For me, cooking is...
A way to connect with my clients.
I learned to cook at...
After graduating with Dean's List Honours at George Brown College, I trained and apprenticed in Toronto, Canada under Jamie Kennedy Kitchens.
A role model in the kitchen is...
In real life, Jamie Kennedy. On TV, James Barber
A cooking secret...

Chef Richard's reviews
The Take A Chef platform was amazing. We put in some basic details and received 3 chef proposals within days. We chose Chef Richard Feroze and had an absolutely fantastic experience. His menu was thoughtful and full of home made ingredients and farm to table freshness. His Service was impeccable. He was attentive, social and yet worked in the background providing us with an intimate dinner. From initial prep to cleanup he was professional and thorough. His food was inventive, creative and downright delicious. 5 stars all the way.

Chef Richard exceeded all expectations! He was very open with communication, very professional in all aspects from start to finish, helpful with everything we needed and more!! We cannot say enough about Chef Richard and Nicole. We couldn't have expected a more thought-out menu (a Japanese-fusion inspired menu as per our request), eye-catching and enjoyable service (presentation, delivery, etc.), and the food was just perfect (from breads, hors d'oeuvres, to dessert)! Each course left us wanting more! Thank you Chef Richard for such a memorable experience! There is no other private chef we would want next time we want to book another private/intimate dinner.
