If you are looking for a private chef - there is NO BETTER OPTION than CHEF WAYNE. Stop searching for anyone else right now!

I highly recommend Chef Wayne. The food he served was delicious, and all the courses and wine came out in a timely manner. Not a single thing disappointed us. The steak was huge and the cheesecake was the most decadent cheesecake I’ve ever tasted. The famous semolina buns were fantastic. Chef Wayne was very professional and personable. I’d love to hire him again on my next visit to the Finger Lakes.

Hi Chef Wayne!!

You recently made the trip to Ellicottville and cooked me and my bridal party the BEST food I have ever had! I saved your card with plans of getting back in touch with you for a future event. We were all very impressed with the service you provided – you made it a wonderful night with amazing food and wine for us girls, so thank you so much again for being a part of such a special time for me.

Chef Wayne was absolutely amazing. We had stayed at the Finger Lakes for a birthday weekend and Chef Wayne gave us a night to remember. He came prepared with everything and shared his knowledge on the wine and Finger Lakes as we were served our four course meal. Our party was left happy, full, and laughing. He was professional, personable, and left our rental cleaner than he found it! We could not recommend Chef Wayne enough and can’t wait to come back!

We had an amazing experience with Chef Wayne crafting a special dinner for my family to celebrate my parent’s 40th wedding anniversary. He was professional, very knowledgeable, and made delicious food totally from scratch. He brought in all his own cookware and table settings, leaving the kitchen just as clean as he found it. I highly recommend Chef Wayne to anyone looking for a one-of-kind experience!

Chef Wayne did an amazing job getting our girls weekend off to a great start! He had a great variety of options to choose from for our menu, and everything was delicious. We loved his knowledge of the history of the wines in the area, and he left the house even cleaner than he found it. I would hire him again without hesitation.
