Food had an early impact on my life. My fondest childhood memories include watching Food Network with my mom and seeing my dad slow cook Sunday dinners — nothing like smoked ribs on a summer’s day! My appreciation for all things culinary, led me to begin working in restaurants at the age of 18 and I immediately felt at home. I continued to work my way through the industry and have now spent the last 8 years running kitchens in your favorite NYC restaurants.
I realized I had a particular fondness for private catering when I started dating my wife. Together, we cooked dinner for her family every Friday; It was our thing. Inspired by the intimacy of the process, my ability to be creative with recipes and presentation and most of all, the way a great meal punctuates an unforgettable evening; I developed a desire to share this experience with others. Our thing became my thing, as I regularly began cooking for couples and small parties, in addition to being a full-time chef. As much as I enjoy the art of cooking, it’s really not about food. It’s about the experience. The food is just the gateway to the experience. That being said, I look forward to the opportunity to make your special evening unforgettable.
