With my secret ingredient (passion!) and a commitment to personalized menus and exceptional service, I’m ready to create unforgettable culinary experiences for each and every client. So, if you’re ready to take your taste buds on a wild ride, let’s cook up something amazing together!

  • I 100% recommend Sunny for ANY event you're hosting...the booking experience was smooth and responsive, we coordinated calendar invites, and the follow-up/punctuality was top-notch!!

    The food was delicious, Sunny washed all dishes after the event was through, and he got my young kids involved to make it a great time for the entire family.

  • Chef Sunny and his wife, Jenny were a pleasure to work with. We did a cooking class for 6 of us for a holiday treat. Sunny helped me find a menu that worked for the foodies and the picky eaters in the group. It was more of a cooking demonstration than a hands-on class but we did get several opportunities to help and try our hands at tasks. The meal was tasty. Sunny and Jenny left my kitchen cleaner than it was when they arrived.

  • It was a great experience working with Chef Sunny. He communicated with me the entire time, was flexible and gave great feedback for the menu. He even upgraded the meats for me at no extra cost. He arrived on time and went straight to work, the food was delicious! My friends and I are still raving over the Brazilian cheesy bread and the chimichurri lobster! My kitchen was left spotless afterwards. I’m excited to experience his culinary skills again and have had friends who attended the dinner party requesting his information.

  • An amazing and memorable experience! We tried our first at home meal for our wedding anniversary, and it was incredible. Chef Sunny not only taught us new tricks, but also taught us more about our kitchen than we ever knew :-) The food was incredible. The conversation was lively. We would absolutely do it again! Thank you so much!

  • Table at Home and Chef Sunny thank you. The Table at Home website is easy to navigate. Chef Sunny replied immediately with several meal options. In addition Sunny helped suggest the types of wine we might like to pair with each course. The meal it self was everything we could hope for. We can’t thank Chef Sunny and his wife enough for providing such a memorable culinary experience.

  • I highly recommend Chef Sunny! He cooked a wonderful meal for the 6 of us at my mom’s 70th birthday dinner. He was very communicative throughout the process, responding promptly to every message and text. He was made aware of all the food allergies and the dishes turned out absolutely delicious. Sunny made extremely yummy salads to start with, then salmon (one of his signature dishes), diver scallops, strip steak and the most mouthwatering macaroni and cheese dish ever for my daughter, an extremely finicky eater. She finished the entire plate! Each dish’s presentation was colorful and beautiful. Sunny’s prices are reasonable and fair while his ingredients are top-notch and fresh. He arrived early with his wife to set up and stayed until the end to clean up everything, including the dishes. Dessert was beyond yummy! Green tea ice-cream with pumpkin purée; it was our first time trying this dish and we all devoured it. If you’re looking for an outstanding, hardworking, professional, thoughtful and THE BEST chef there is, look no further, Sunny is your man! Book him today!
