About Me

Chef Massimo Fedozzi, is a graduate of the Marco Polo Culinary Institute of Genova, Italy. While growing up in Northern Italy, Fedozzi was intimately involved with food from a young age. He learned about pasta and antipasti at his parents’ salumi shops in Genova and delighted in the meals and aromas while his family gathered around the kitchen table. Fluent in English, Italian and Spanish, he was expected to become a translator, but followed his true passion and attended the Marco Polo Culinary Institute in Genova. Fedozzi’s career began in the kitchens of some of Europe’s most renowned establishments including: The Savoy Hotel in London, England; Le Chantecler at the Hotel Le Negresco in Nice, France and Grand The Hotel Park in Gstaad, Switzerland. At Ristorante Aladino in Genova, following the step of his mentor Gualtiero Marchesi, Fedozzi became one of the first chefs in Italy to present nouvelle cuisine and the youngest Italian Executive Chef. He strives to share his enthusiasm for taste and presentation and lives by the philosophy that “THE QUALITY OF INGREDIENTS IS EVERYTHING AND SIMPLICITY OF EXECUTION IS A MUST”.
Before moving to Long Island in 2009, where he opened “Palio Ristorante” in Jericho and “VERO” in Amityville, Chef Fedozzi spearheaded the opening and operations of all back of the house functions as Culinary Director for “I Tre Merli”, “Barolo”, “La Focaccia” and “I Tre Merli Bistro” in Manhattan.
In 1995 he became the Corporate Chef for Jimmy Schmidt in Detroit where he ran the Back of the house operations of four Chianti restaurants, Stelline in the Somerset Troy and The Rattlesnake Club.
In July 1997, Massimo was hired by “Sofo Foods” as Spokesperson and Vice President of Research and Development, where he represented the company at major food events and developed recipes for various restaurant chains.

Five years later, Chef Massimo took the helm of the kitchen of Portobello Yacht Club in Downtown Disney, Orlando. Chef Fedozzi moved to Arlington, VA, where he spearheaded the opening of the Hotel Palomar Roslyn with Kimpton Hotel and Restaurants as property Chef.

Chef Massimo is available to travel if you have the need for Personal Chef services.
“Chef Massimo doesn’t play around; in a sea of Sunday gravy, deep fried cutlets and pizza joints, he is a jutting promontory of satisfaction. Fedozzi puts out the genuine article, bona fide regional Italian cuisine that will make your mouth water like a Pavlovian dog and your head spin like a top. Like a true artisan, he is a passionate soul: a lover of life, and clean, earthy food and flavors, which he masterfully weaves together into a consistently beautiful and delicious finished product”.
“Massimo is not only one of the most creative chefs I have had the pleasure to have worked with, he is also talented with knowing what his clients want and promoting those thing that they don’t yet know they want.
His ideas about reaching the customers are adaptive depending on the market in which he is working. From authentic neighborhood Italian restaurants to large tourist centric establishments, Massimo has excelled in having this customers return again and again.
On a personal note, I have known Massimo since his days working in the Orlando theme park where getting return patrons is quite difficult however not only did the locals go to his restaurant, those visiting the theme park on an annual basis would list eating at Massimo’s as part of the reason they returned.
And, he is a nice guy as well. Go figure! Some guys have all the right things going for them.”
“Massimo is the consummate professional cuisinier – and a pleasure to work with. I’ve worked with him on a number of restaurant projects and appreciate his talent, professionalism and communication skills. He can cook; he can dream, and he can take those visions to reality. He’s a creative force steeped in classical technique. Bravo!”
“I have known Massimo for over 25 years. His passion for food, quality, and a combination of Classic Italian and today’s trends including Farm to Table are fantastic. He understands the business side and will provide creative food, understands service and loves to meet guests. Massimo is a proud, capable chef and restaurant professional.”
“When Chef Massimo Fedozzi worked in Orlando, he was one of the top chefs on the circuit. As an editor of visitor and lifestyle magazines, I covered him extensively in the early 2000s when he worked at Portofino Bay Hotel at the Universal Resort. His food, creativity and professionalism were impressive. We were sorry to see him leave.”

  • I overnighted truffles from Italy and Massimo knew EXACTLY how to clean and prepare them! He prepared a burrata w prosciutto, salad, and fresh pasta that he made on the spot. Wow. I can’t recommend enough. Maybe the only thing better than his cooking was his amazing wife! They were incredible! They’re the best!

  • Table at Home worked so seamlessly and made it super easy to book a private chef on short notice. We got multiple bids and settled with Chef Massimo who provided a beautiful 4 course meal for us! There was so much food we had to take a break before dessert! His wife Tara make a great team managing the kitchen and they both helped make a special night with amazing food and excellent service! Don't hesitate to book them!

  • Massimo and his wife were honestly a treat to have at the house. They are very personable and make it feel like you have family cooking in your kitchen. The one and only thing was the food wasn't super hot/warm when it was served. Other than that, this was unbeatable service and quality, they really made it super easy and relaxing!

  • Chef Massimo promised us a great meal and he delivered. He certainly knows his way around the kitchen. His menu was lovely
    We were able to relax at home and didn’t have to fight the hordes in the Hamptons.

  • From beginning to end Chef Massimo and his wife Tara were perfect for us. They are such fun loving people with a passion for food and creativity. Chef made a multi course Italian meal that was to die for. The baby motz & tomato bruschetta was delicious and so well presented just like the tuna Crudo dish was plated and served. Hands-down the gnocchi bolognese was my favorite. Pillows of heaven! We are very picky about our red sauce and let me tell you something... it was amazing. And omg... the chicken scarpariello with sausage was packed with a punch of flavors and fell right off the bone.
    Would so recommend Chef any day!!!

  • Chef Massimo was a delight, he cooked us a lovely four course dinner which was all as per the agreed menu. Each course was delicious and flavoursome and the rack of lamb was exceptional (and substantial), but most importantly, the food was enjoyed by all.
    He is very passionate about food and arrived on time and left the kitchen immaculate. This was my first experience of using Table at home and I would definitely use this service and Massimo again if I were to find myself back in the USA.
