The website only allotted us 3 of the total 5 quick description options for David and we believe he deserves them all. All 5 were: work quality, professionalism, responsiveness, value and punctuality. David was very impressive as well as his sous chef. He was very informative in the days leading up to the event, as well as flexible in what we were requesting prior. He gave great options for our 3 course brunch menu and we were thrilled with the results. We selected french toast fries, eggs benedict and lobster tacos. The presentation of the food looked just as appetizing as it tasted. His team also took care of setting up our desert platter. All in all, 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for an easy going chef who’s passionate about what he does.

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.

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

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

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!”

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!
