Chef Chris was born and raised in San Diego, California, where he quickly made a name for himself on the local dining scene as an ambitious young talent. Rising in the ranks from sous to executive chef roles at fine dining establishments and renowned country clubs, he eventually acquired a private chef position before moving to Atlanta with his growing family in 2019, where he’d accepted a corporate chef role overseeing onsite dining and food service at a prestigious university.
His modern, artistic approach to traditional dishes and emphasis on fresh, quality ingredients – locally sourced whenever possible – has created a demand for his products, but his unrelenting focus on the customer and creating a memorable experience is what really sets him apart.
Amid changes in today’s dining landscape, Chris felt that now more than ever was the time to use his entrepreneurial spirit. Shifting to more personally rewarding endeavors- he began channeling his considerable talents into woodworking and cooking for friends and neighbors. As word spread and requests poured in from the community, his passion quickly morphed into a growing business.
Chris now devotes his time to creating memorable in-home dining experiences for clients in the metro Atlanta community. He collaborates with the customer to design and prep a gourmet menu, coming in-home (masked) to cook for the group and present an intimate restaurant-style experience in the comforts and safety of their own home.
"People are looking for new ways to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions," Chris notes. “I love working with families to provide a creative solution for their needs, bringing the experience of a private chef in-home to deliver that personal touch along with an incredible custom meal.”
In addition to his culinary pursuits, Chris also works with clients on custom woodworking projects – from shelving units and home décor to centerpieces and charcuterie boards.
His home business is based in Marietta, Ga. When he’s not creating in the kitchen or woodshop, you can find him with his wife Melissa, a private practice pediatric OT, chasing his two young kids, cheering on the Georgia Bulldogs, and enjoying their new community of friends and neighbors.
