    Chef Andrew was part of a business event I hosted at my home in San Juan Capistrano. His warm, generous, fun and friendly participation absolutely made this event a memorable one. His knowledge of food, educational approach to food and nutrition was the all the talk among attendees. Ive already received many requests to book Chef Andrew for my next event in January. Chef was well prepared, informative, and entertaining and his dishes were absolutely stunning! Chef Andrew, thank you so much for helping make the event such a memorable experience. I can not wait to have you join us at my next event in 2020. Your a true culinary rock star!

    Chef Andrew was so inviting, he is a pleasure to be around. He demonstrated how to make his menu in great detail, and showed many amazing tips and tricks along the way. The food he prepared was not only healthy and easy to follow but super delicious as well! His presentation was a craft within itself...I would highly recommend Chef Andrew! Chef Andrew has a great spot for entertaining, the backyard is beautiful, perfect for a BBQ! There is plenty of parking, it is very clean and he can host many people.

    Frequently asked questions

    I introduce myself to the client. With excitement I find the needs and wants of each new student so I can personalize each class or classes. A personal repoir is very important.

    Ive been a formor culinary instuctor from the following institutes.

    The Culinary Institue of America NY

    The French Culinary Institue  NY

    The Florida Culinary Institue FL

    I am a,

    Certified Personal Chef, CPC

    Cerified Executive Chef, CEC

    Certified research and development chef, CRC

    Certified Chef de Cuisine, CCC

    My culinary services range from $45.00 to $95.00 per hour. These quotes are based on a average three hour hands on class. Many clients prefer to have the culinary classes carried on to a group dinner. These events are at the same rate mentioned.

    When I stopped teaching at culinary institues, I opened my own culinary private / personal chef business which was highly recieved with culinary hands on education.

    Children, adults, corporate team buliding, special need groups, and public figures.

    Spending one month at sea teaching the navy cooks, know as Culinary Specialist. I also have wonderful expierences showing exciting culinary entertainment with "Irion Chef" group hands on competitions. 

    First and foremost have them clearly decide what they really would like to learn, specialize in? I strongly recommmend basic knife skills and cooking basic techniques so down the road they will be able to address almost any cuisine. I aslo highly suggest the look for a teacher with great energy and a fun dymamic personality? This makes a huge difference. 

    First and formost explain what they really are interested in. Students should do strong research on the particular teacher, (chef). What space and accommodations do they have? (example: Their kitchen space, etc.) Discuss with the teacher how many classes may it take to create their desired dish or cuisine. Lastly what can they learn with their desired budget, and is the teacher available at that budget.
