Get to know me better
Classically Trained Chef with over 20 years experience specializing in ultra fresh, sustainable, and delicious cuisine.
Currently looking to find an individual or group of people that I can meal prep for or cook in home on a regular basis as my restaurant is closed until the covid-19 situation has passed. I am healthy and will continue to work as long as I have not had contact with anyone who has the virus. Your safety will always be my first priority and I will never knowingly break that trust.
I am a professional Chef with over 20 years of experience in restaurants, catering, corporate dining, and as a private chef. My passion is creating food that brings people together and is an enhancement to any occasion, celebration, event, or meal. Food can, like nothing else, create memories and experiences that are remembered by all of the senses for a lifetime, and to be a part of that is my pleasure and honor. I learned my culinary skills at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Scottsdale Arizona. Due to having a full time job, I do request 7 days notice whenever possible and I have a $400 minimum.
For me, cooking is...
a way to enhance a celebration, create happiness when someone is down, nourish the body, and is a common denominator in everyone’s lives.
I learned to cook at...
Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Scottsdale Arizona.
A role model in the kitchen is...
my first culinary instructor who told me, “if you continue on the path to becoming a Chef, be prepared to never be invited to another dinner party.”
A cooking secret...
In order to create GREAT food, LOVE must permeate into all aspects of the meal, from planning choosing ingredients, to prep, execution, and service
