Chef Travels to You

Chef Chad got an early start in the kitchen, learning how to cook at the tender age of eight. After his interests shifted to sports, he became aware of the connection between nutrition and health. This awakening drove him to travel the West Coast and Southwest for pastry and private chef opportunities. Now settled in Southern California, Chef Chad shares his love of food with hungry clients and eager students.
