Meet the Chef

Brad Verberg

I have always had a passion for food. My love of cooking first began during my childhood in Grand Rapids, Michigan.


I was taught the old fashioned way — in the kitchen alongside my grandmother and father.

What's the difference?

Do you know the difference between a Private Chef and a Personal Chef?

Chef Brad explains the roles and responsibilities of each.

We have had the pleasure of working with Brad and his culinary expertise in both a formal and informal setting.  Brad’s menu development is fresh, creative and appropriate.

The presentations were exceptional. We were impressed with the food quality, his flexibility, his easy yet service-driven demeanor. He manages the budget as well as the food.

Nick and I highly recommend Brad’s services and look forward to working with him again for our next gathering.”
