Amazing presentation and great food! Chef Leon is awesome!

Amazing presentation and great food. Chef Leon is awesome. Book him now because this guy will have his own tv show soon and he will be too famous and you won't be able to get him.

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!

An experienced chef with a great personality, we would highly recommend him for your next personaliz

On the set of "White Fire," a short film produced in Tallahassee, FL, Chef Brunson catered delicious meals that the entire cast and crew enjoyed. The meal of shrimp and grits/potato bread pudding was simple yet overwhelmingly flavorful. The chef knew how to cater to a large crowd and kept all of the buffet-style food warm up until serving time. An experienced chef with a great personality, we would highly recommend him for your next personalized meal either for a few people or a large crowd.

Leon has been a private chef for my family for four years. His cooking is superb, matched by his great personality. He has cooked family dinners for 5 to 7 people on a regular basis and catered dinners and receptions for 30-100 people. He is exceptional.

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!

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!

Frequently Asked Questions

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?

Right arrow

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?

Right arrow

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!

How do you schedule a private dinner?

Right arrow

Schedule a call with me to confirm the dinner date and what kind of food you’d like. Then, based on our conversation, I can determine a price point.

Can you provide a private dinner for two?

Right arrow

Unfortunately, we rarely service private dinners for two. I encourage couples to sign up for one of our cooking classes as a great alternative.

What do you specialize in?

Right arrow

Southern Food. Japanese, Moroccan, & Indian flavors and influences.

Pricing? How much can we expect to spend?

Right arrow

We ask planners and guests to budget a minimum of $85 per person.

Can you take care of various allergy/dietary requests?

Right arrow

Yes. We take allergy and dietary restrictions very seriously. If there is a food allergy, we will happily accommodate the guests. We will need proper notice beforehand! They must be distinguished to us on the day of the event!

When will you need a final headcount?

Right arrow

The headcount two weeks prior to the event will be the one that is accounted for. Any changes that subtract from the headcount are not refundable.

Do we need to bring our own wine?

Right arrow

We will provide you with a beer and wine list and recommendations for pairings on the menu. We are happy to include a beer and wine package if you feel your guests will take advantage; otherwise, we offer beer and wine to be purchased on-site separately.
