Chef in New York City, New York

I am originally from Washington, DC and recently re-located to New York. I have a bachelor's degree in finance as well as a culinary degree. While in DC, I worked under a Top Chef contestant and at a Michelin Star restaurant, which was also named the Best Restaurant in America by Bon Appetit in 2014. I have worked in other Michelin Star restaurants in Chicago and have 3 years of private chef experience. I would love to cook for a family that is in need of a private chef for weekly meal preparation, private dinners, or small gatherings. I often work with locally-sourced, organic ingredients and have experience cooking with vegan, vegetarian, and kosher dietary restrictions. Additionally, I have knowledge of Asian, Mediterranean, and French cuisines as well as a wide-range of pastry making. I am able to travel anywhere in the New York area, along with the occasional longer distance travel.

I have known Kelly for many years and watched her transition from the financial industry to culinary school, where she quickly excelled and graduated first in her class. What sets Kelly apart from other chefs is her natural creativity and knack for knowing exactly what it takes to make an exceptional recipe. Her range of experiences make her especially suitable for a personal chef; she has worked at everything ranging from a doughnut shop to a Michelin Star restaurant. Kelly has the skills and experience to make a traditional, classic meal such as a pot roast, to something more exotic and unique, such as Pho or crab rangoons. If you want truly delicious and varied meals, Kelly is the best choice for your personal chef needs.

Kelly has cooked many meals for me personally and at many dinner parties which I have attended. She is extremely talented across a wide variety of cuisines, ranging from Thai and Korean to Middle Eastern and modern American. Additionally, Kelly is adaptable and fits meals to the preferences of her guests, including healthy eating options. Kelly is dependable, hard-working, and highly sociable - qualities that make her a great personal chef in both weekly meal-prep and dinner party environments.
