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.

Chef Richard Feroze transformed our home into a haute cuisine restaurant. He took us through a personalized gastronomic experience which we never experienced before. From getting the ingredients to prepping the meal,from setting the table to serving the food on the table everything he did with so much warmth. It is an absolute pleasure to have chef Richard at our place and experience the most delicious food.

We wanted an intimate night with delicious food and some food prep tips. With this in mind, Richard delivered above and beyond all expectations. He was very professional and explained every step of the cooking process. He even taught us how to properly butcher a chicken by bringing extra whole chickens! Every step of the process was included in a very detailed and personalized document and sent before the event. Every care was taken to cook and present a memorable, gourmet meal. Richard also has a wonderful, hospitable personality, and it is clear that he enjoys what he does. I would not hesitate to recommend Richard's services to anyone looking for a special, catered event.
