About Me

I am Here For You & Steps I am Taking to Address COVID-19
To my Clients, Partners, and Friends,
I know things are unsettling at the moment as our communities, our neighbors, our friends, and families are feeling the impact of this difficult time. Levels of anxiety are high as our daily lives have to be adjusted to keep up with the changing environment around us. I want to assure you I am doing everything in my power to stay informed, supported, and to maintain my equipment to the highest sanitary standards so I can continue to bring your private dining events and occasions to life.
With all of this in mind, I want to reassure you I am HERE for you. If you are unsure about gathering in publicly accessible places like restaurants, I am able to deliver unique, refined experiences, across the tri-state area, in your homes and private venues of your choice. As your Private Chef I am available for short and long-term private chef services to help keep your fridges stocked up or provide full table service on a regular basis.
As information becomes available from the CDC and other industry experts, I am actively following all guidelines and directives. I want to provide you with an update on the actions I am taking in response to the outbreak.
My prep kitchen is professionally cleaned and sanitized throughout every production day, as well as deep cleaned at the end of every day.
Disposable gloves are always used consistently throughout the food, event production, as well as service when requested.
I am encouraging clients to focus on individually plated food packages vs family-style meals to lessen contact with each other.
I avoid handshaking or physical contact with clients and other people when working or onsite at events.
I appreciate all your support and look forward to continuing to be a part of your family, your special occasions, your casual gatherings, and support all your corporate event needs.
As I want to do my part to support your networks and to keep as busy as possible, please feel free to forward this info to whomever you feel may benefit from my services. This is a difficult time for small businesses in all industries and it’s up to us to support those businesses we care about to help each other get through this tough time.
Please stay safe. We will get through this together!
Warm Regards,
Your Personal Chef
Hello and thank you for your interest. Welcome to Dining with Jason let’s plan a great meal together. I specialize in customizing dinners that will exceed your expectations and create lasting memories.
I have over 18 years of experience learning techniques from some of the best chefs and restaurateurs in the business. David Burke’s Fromagerie was my intro to French classics. I enjoy recreating Jacques Pepin signature dishes. Iron Chef Michael Simon Influenced my Greek and Mediterranean flavors. Steven Starr’s Buddakan and Morimoto introduced me to Asian fusion. My years of fine dining restaurants, in home private dining, 5 diamond hotels and catering special events have given me an appreciation for quality ingredients and elegant meals.

We hired him for my sister’s bachelorette party, and it was so much fun!

I highly recommend him and I would absolutely hire him again for our next at home dinner party!

    I requested a lobster bake and Chef Jason provided exactly what I asked for. He went above and beyond with locally grown products and flavors that were out of this world. He offered suggestions on wine parings and was personable to work with. Chef Jason made us all feel comfortable and added a nice touch by announcing each dish as it was served.
    Clean up was thorough.
    We would work with Chef Jason again in a heartbeat!

  • Chef Jason was wonderful. He arrived at our door exactly on time, had everything he needed with him and was ready to start prepping the food immediately. He was charming and conversational; told us about every course; served and left me with a spotless kitchen.

    In creating our menu, he took into account all the allergies and preferences of our guests. The menu was the perfect meal to celebrate one of our guest's birthdays. We had never done this before and found the entire experience a great treat, especially working with Jason. I can't offer a higher recommendation.

  • I cannot say enough wonderful things about Jason! He showed up on time and ready to cook, chatting casually as he prepared our delicious 3-course meal for 7 people, and expertly dodging the four kids 6 & under running around the house. He was also able to accommodate our guests’ myriad of allergies. And as if that wasn’t enough, my kitchen was sparkling clean after! I look forward to our next meal with him!

  • Chef Jason was immediately responsive, on time and so hospitable. He was present and friendly but also working seamlessly around my guests (almost as though he wasn't there at times). His food was above restaurant quality - my guests absolutely raved about everything last thing he made. I was able to sit and enjoy my guests and eat wonderful food - the best entertaining idea ever. I will use this service and Chef Jason again for a cooking class dinner and other events - it really elevated my cocktail party.

  • I highly recommend Chef Jason. His food was amazing and he was extremely professional. He arrived on time, was personable with our guests, and left the kitchen clean and tidy after the meal was over. He even made a little extra portion of dessert. My 4 person dinner party was a success because of him, and the guests even commented that his food was better than their experience the night before at fancy, highly regarded NYC restaurant. I will certainly book Chef Jason again. If you are considering hiring him - I suggest you do!
