Personal Chef Cooking Services


April 2014


My recent purchase of a flat bottom 14″ carbon steel wok from The Wok Shop in San Francisco, CA is the bomb! I had to make breakfast for myself, just a two egg scramble and it worked to perfection. The wok heats up very quickly lending the eggs to not stick. I love Chinese style woks, it’s heaven to cook with


The flat bottom carbon steel work horse with a tablespoon of vegetable oil over setting no. 6 (High).


2 raw eggs ready to be scrambled


Eggs being cooked nicely in the carbon steel flat bottom wok


Eggs cook very quickly in wok, you should try this… can’t wait to make a 4 egg Egg Fu Yung it’ll be a thick juicy product!


And the finished plated 2 egg scramble, just the way I love it, little brown.. the wok does give eggs and everything you cook in it a nice sear. Aloha call email me if you need a personal chef to cook for you and your loved ones.

Comfort foods and bacon go hand in hand, love to cook comforting foods for my clients. Bacon can be an addition to Asian stir fries, or stews, pastas, seafood, and it can be crispy strips for an appetizer with some red wine, like a good bottle to share with a loved one, maybe a Cabernet Sauvignon. Or maybe a fine quality Junmai Ginjo cold. Whatever the food, I can put cripsy bacon in it to make it rock solid comfy style.

As a personal chef focusing on the cookings I grew up with, I use a wok or a few woks at least 90 % of the time. Whenever  a client asks me to customize some lunch or dinner for them it’s usually a stir fry that I do. Why? Because it’s the best type of cooking, Chinese/Filipino style wok cooking is all about trimming the veggies thin, meats thin, with an awesome sauce, maybe savory, maybe tangy, sweet and sour, salty and bold, rich and creamy.. the wok does it all. Here in this picture I just received a 14″ work horse of a wok from the Wok Shop in San Francisco, California. It took me 3 sessions to season it, and I’m looking forward to purchasing a few more. (In this pic, it’s new and not fully seasoned)

So if you are looking for dine at home session with a personal chef, call me and I am very affordable. Set menus and prices are available. Customize menus are a little more on the price scale but I am willing to work with all future clients in getting them a very valuable dining experience.

If I had to say to you hire me for what? I’d say hire me for a dinner for 2, you and your special someone, let me make you a simple Chinese Style 3 course meal. Steamed rice with entree.
