World Traveled Chef with an obsession to create the worlds best food. Michelin Trained in both Savory and Pastry
My name is Justin Snyder and I am 32 years old. For the past 13 years culinary has been my true passion and I have been traveling the world working in some of the top kitchens honing my skills. I have developed my own style of culinary, which is considered fusion but also mix of some of the best techniques to truly showcase the ingredients. I utilize all of the top suppliers I have met during my travels to source only the best ingredients! After many years of practice I am proud to announce a sushi section to compliment my other services.
I have been Michelin trained in both savory and pastry and I am a proud honor graduate of the world famous E.N.S.P pastry school owned by Alain Ducasse in Yssingeaux, France. I have helped Consult/Design over 20 successful concepts in multiple countries. When it comes to actual food service I have been in Michelin kitchens, San Pellegrino Worlds best, QSR, Food Truck, Private Chef, Charity Events, and catering. I wanted to work/explore all aspects of the F&B sector and learn as much as I could on how to successfully operate various concepts.

Chef Justin's reviews
We had the best experience with Chef Justin. From the menu proposal to the last bite everything was absolute perfection. Justin prepared the most beautiful and delicious meal, with amazing local ingredients and interesting unique flavor combinations. He was incredibly attentive to dietary requests, even when serving a large group. I was so amazed with how efficiently they cooked and after they left the kitchen was spotless. I cannot thank Justin for providing such a great experience for the bachelorette party we were hosting and I would absolutely recommend him for future experiences.

Chef Snyder was super attentive, and created the perfect evening for me and my family to celebrate. The dish quality was superb and he went above and beyond to explain to us what he was serving, and making sure everyone was happy. I would definitely hire Justin again for a special occasion or just a night in! Thank you for making my graduation extra special!
