Client Reviews

We just love everything about Z’Chef! The food he prepares is absolutely delicious! He is very professional and courteous. Thank you Z’Chef!! – Elizabeth and Ronald Howell

I had a very positive experience of Roy doing a luncheon for me for my Book Club. Everyone raved about the food. I raved about the convenience of it! Thank you, Roy! – Penny R.

Z’Chef worked tirelessly to present an elegantly whimsical spread for our retirement/house warming event. From a simple yet sophisticated appetizer table to ethnically diverse entrees, some involving days of prep, the meal finished with delicious made-to-order 3 tiered Tuxedo cakes. There was an abundance of food for all to enjoy, and each course had specially made condiments to add gourmet flair to the offerings. To watch Roy create the meal was not unlike witnessing a painter produce a fine work of art. One perceptive guest described the display of food paired with ambiance as “magical!” – J. Conte

Z’Chef is first class, four star cooking. The raspberry reduction in the salad dressing was beyond compare. The flavors in the paella are better than you can find in Barcelona!
Chef Roy, you know your stuff. – Bob Grim

Start to finish, Chef Roy did a fantastic job with my private client dinner party!  Food and service was first class; all my guests commented afterwards how much they enjoyed the food! Could not have asked for a better experience! I would highly recommend Chef Roy!! – J. Drobins

My wife and I were fortunate to have Chef Roy Z prepare the meal for a dinner party we had this past weekend. From the first phone conversation I had, weeks earlier, with Roy (to discuss what type of dinner we were striving for) through his post dinner clean up, he absolutely gave me a peace of mind that our eight person dinner would go off without a hitch. Roy’s suggested five course meal was consistently spectacular, from the butternut squash soup all the way through to the multi topping crepe bar. Roy was at ease throughout his food prep, deftly engaging in small talk with our guests as he filled our home with the most amazing aromas. My wife, our six guests, and I cannot say enough positive things about Roy, his easy going personality, and his incredible cooking. Thank you Roy, for creating an amazing night for eight appreciative (and stuffed) friends.

“For foodies and non-foodies, this is the perfect cooking experience. Executive Chef, Roy, could not have provided a better experience in the kitchen. It is clear from his teaching plan that this is his passion. He brings decades of experiences and caters to all palates and dietary restrictions. In fact, those with any dietary restrictions, he is quite innovative! My wife and I had a memorable experience learning how to make bread and crepes and will be carrying on his methods. We highly recommend Roy for cooking lessons or as a personal chef!” – C. DeChurch

We were hosting our team dinner event and challenged Chef in serving dinner in a remote location with no operational kitchen. He impressed us immensely with the presentation, flavors and overall menu were outstanding. We loved the flexibility and creativity he offered and our guests were extremely pleased. – J. Ross

We had a serious gluten allergy in our group and Chef Roy made sure everything was gluten free and delicious. He was awesome! – P. Silver

I had a fantastic experience working with Z’Chef (Roy) was attentive, kind, knowledgeable,and of course a talented chef! Roy created personalized meals over the span of 3 days so I had the opportunity to enjoy multiple dishes and each one was delicious! I cannot say enough about his attention to detail; everything from ‘plating’ the food on warm dishes, to tailoring meals to suit our tastes and dietary needs. I am convinced he can make anything one can imagine – and it will taste amazing! I highly recommend Z’Chef for anyone looking for individualized, high quality, and excellent tasting food! – J. Sirianni

I recently hired Chef Roy to prepare a birthday dinner for 7 people. After talking to Roy about his numerous menu options, we decided on bruschetta as an appetizer, bacon wrapped scallop salad, scalloped potatoes, roasted vegetables and Beef Wellington, and Creme Brûlée for dessert. His attention to detail and expertise in the kitchen were exceptional. During food preparation we enjoyed conversing with Roy about his experiences in preparing meals for a variety of clients. Everyone enjoyed the meal and would recommend Chef Roy to prepare a meal for any occasion. – F. Grim

We hosted a dinner party for 8 in our home and for the first time decided to hire a personal chef so we could enjoy the company of our guests and not worry about cooking. What a wonderful experience! Roy’s suggested menu was a hit with our guests and he was such a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Roy for any event! – C. Pastorius
