Hey there! I’m Geoff

I’m a lifelong cook and chef who has taken his career in some of the finest restaurants in California, Vermont, and New York City and woven my food and hospitality experiences into a successful career as a private chef for Ultra-high-net-worth families (UHNWIs) in the Greater New York City area.

Great ideas to improve your kitchen intuition

I am so excited about this part of the site! Being a chef is a lot of trial and error. Problem-solving was one of the most significant parts of my job. My mentality was, “there is always a better way to do anything”. On this page, you will find tips and tricks for all areas of cooking and better ways to work in your kitchen, so you don’t have to make the same mistakes I did!

Why I won’t promote diet for weight loss

If you heard about a “healthy lifestyle” diet being touted as the latest and greatest between 2000 and 2015, I have probably tried it. You name it, I’ve done it: Keto, Atkins, low-sugar, low-carb, and Paleo plus all the big-name calorie-counting apps. They all worked for the short-term, but ultimately, my weight always rebounded and I ended up heavier than I started and even more discouraged.
