I had a great service with (Chef David). The food is great. I look forward into seeing you again

My husband and I were looking for a personal chef given the need to eat healthy and lose weight. I went on Thumbtack and wrote to a couple of experts including Chef David. David responded immediately, was very cordial and professional. After listening to our needs, he came up with a personalized weekly menu with ample variety that was still affordable. Our first week of started today and the food is delicious and healthy- just what we were looking for. Look forward to continue working with Chef David.

David is an excellent cook and was very professional in every respect. He came to our home to cook two main dishes ( lamb racks and sea bass) with 3 different sides. He wore a mask and gloves and cleaned up every kitchen area after his work. He was punctual and very responsive to all our requests. The food was very good and probably enough for 3 or 4 meals for 2 people

Meal was amazing, he was perfect for my quiet homey dinner date.

Chef David is very professional, reliable and great to work with. Versatile and flexible menu. I look forward to continue working with him. I told all my close friends about Chef David, highly recommended!👍🏻👍🏻

I am assisting a public figure. I’ve found chef David on Thumbtack for the family and we all were very happy to have him cooking at home. Food was delicious and always ready right on time ! We could always reach out to him and could take time to discuss about menus.

I loved every bit of my experience with Chef David. From his preparation & professionalism, down to the quality of his finished product: he provides the full package. You would be lucky to have him cook for you. He made shrimp scampi over linguine & it was incredible.

I contacted Chef David for a meal prep service for a very restrictive diet I am on. He was very responsive and got me sample menus that worked within my restrictions soon after & was so great to work with...He came over and wore a mask the entire time. He kept in mind the dietary restrictions and was so professional the entire service!

Excellent food! Excellent service. A great birthday present for my son, who said: “Now that I’m making so much salmon (for myself), I judge it pretty harshly and it was way above standard!”

Chef David was professional from the moment we spoke and quick to answer. We weren’t sure what kind of meal we wanted, but he went above and beyond to make a meal that speaks for itself. We will definitely request his services soon and I can’t recommend him enough.

I was looking for someone to cook a quick meal for my mother’s birthday last minute and David did such a great job! He was on time , very polite, and the food was amazing! I was so happy and my mother was happy as well! I will definitely be contacting him again for future occasions.

I had a great experience working with Chef David....What stood out to me was his ability to be both friendly and professional.

With his level of skill in the kitchen alongside his professionalism in taking care of you, you’re in for an amazing experience.

David was extremely responsive, punctual and clean. He prepared my meals for the next few days and they were fresh and delicious. Would definitely recommend him!

I hired David for an engagement party in my home and enjoyed wonderfully prepared meals. Not only were the appetizers and dinner amazing, but so was the desert! Very well rounded cook. Will hire again.

I ordered macaroons for a party and it was a total hit!!! They were amazing! I can not wait to order again!!

The food and service, was truly an experience beyond just dining.

Who is Chef David?

Born and raised in NJ, I have always had a passion for food. After graduating with a Bachelors in Finance, I realized that I needed to return to school to pursue my dream of creating dishes that were uncompromising in flavor, presentation, and quality.

why a Private Chef?

I believe that everyone can cook. Throughout our busy schedules, many do not have the time to learn how to cook, or have the experience needed to execute each dish consistently. Given the current restaurant limitations, now is the best time to hire a personal chef to have restaurant quality food in your own home!

More Than A Meal

Hiring a private chef saves the most valuable of all commodities: time! Focus on entertaining family, friends, and other guests, while a meal is freshly prepared and served from your own kitchen. 


Organic ingredients with a modern flare and health consciousness are the staples of my repertoire. What is your dream meal? Let's build it together!
