What type of food can you provide?

Right arrow

We. Can. Cook. Anything. We want to offer the guests an opportunity to let us know what they would like to enjoy at their wedding, and we want to work to accommodate that. We can provide a plated service, buffet style, or heavy appetizers depending on the venue. The fun in these events is working with the couple to create the menu of their dreams for a special occasion.

Do you cater out-of-town events?

We have a vast area that we cater to. We can travel as far west as Texas, south as Miami, and north as North Carolina. Due to logistics, we charge for transportation, which could limit what is provided depending on the venue’s kitchen.

How does this work? Do you just...come over and cook?

Exactly that! I arrive to your house 60-90 minutes prior to the agreed upon start time, I'll bring a staff member with me, and you sit back and enjoy the show! We take care of all dishes, cleaning the kitchen, packing leftovers, and everyone is welcome into the kitchen to ask questions at any time!

Do you provide a bartender?

We can provide a beer & wine service, but we do not offer a full liquor bar.

Simply Amazing! Everything was delicious. ...we were all so impressed with his selections.

Simply Amazing! Everything was delicious. Chef Leon put together a perfect menu for a small intimate gathering, and we were all so impressed with his selections. The crab cakes were by far the best I have ever had. The passion Chef has for his clients, for his food, and for his community was evident. It was a great experience, and we are looking forward to the next time! Tallahassee has a great gem in Chef Leon!

We loved watching him prepare the courses while talking with us and answering questions.

Chef Leon prepared a delicious 3-course meal for our family celebration. He is so personable and fun! We loved watching him prepare the courses while talking with us and answering questions. His smile lights up the room! His Mango and Steak Salad, Japanese Curry Crispy Skin Snapper, and Cassava Cake Bread Pudding were so delicious! We loved every course, and my kitchen was so clean when Chef Leon was finished! Such a wonderful evening. If I could rate more than five stars, I would! Treat yourself!

Every course was amazing; the flavors were perfect and cooked with excellent precision.

Tallahassee, book this chef while you can! Contact was very easy with Leon; after a quick initial phone call setting the parameters of our dinner, I was emailed a list of potential menu options to pick from. On the day of our meal, Leon brought everything he needed to cook with, and we got the chance to sit and talk with him as he cooked in our kitchen. We loved the conversation as much as the food. Every course was amazing; the flavors were perfect and cooked with excellent precision. It was so much fun to talk about the food and cooking techniques, as well as just chat with Leon. For the amount of time Leon was in our house cooking and the preparation time he had to have put in for our meal (plus he bought all the ingredients), the price was more than fair. I wish Leon could cook all our meals!

I wish I could give this review more than five stars. Leon is dedicated, passionate, and incredibly talented. Leon is a rockstar!

I got married last year, and Leon catered for the wedding. I wish I could give this review more than five stars. Leon is dedicated, passionate, and incredibly talented. He was a joy to work with. The man who is my husband now spent the better part of one and a half decades working in the hospitality industry as a chef. Given his background, he can sometimes have seemingly impossible standards for certain aspects of food service. I requested stuffed shells with red sauce as one of the dishes because it is a Jersey Italian classic which my family, who was traveling from up north, would appreciate. My husband wanted his recipe for tomato sauce to be featured in the dish. After several phone calls with caterers telling him no, we asked Leon. He exceeded expectations and went above and beyond. The tomato sauce was perfect, and everything else he had creative freedom for was better than what we could’ve imagined. Leon is a rockstar.

Chef Leon is amazing! He taught a phenomenal cooking class for the Jack and Jill, Inc. Fathers group. It was by far the best meal my husband has made and the Zoom live instructions were excellent! We can't wait to go to the restaurant!
