Chef Cristian Feher

Thank you for visiting our website. I’m sure you’re curious to learn a little more about Tampa’s premier personal chef service. My name is Cristian Feher, I am a professional chef, and food writer. In 2009 I opened up Tampa Bay Chef Services to provide you with gourmet culinary services in your homes.

I have been a professional chef for over 15 years, but my training started when I was a child in Venezuela. I was sous chef to my French and Venezuelan grandmothers who, to my good fortune, were great culinary masters in their own rights. They allowed me to take part in preparing all the meals and really sparked my love for food. My parents were also excellent cooks. They afforded me the opportunity to travel and experience many different cultures and cuisines. 

During my later childhood, my family moved to Toronto, Canada. It was there where I grew up and honed my skills as a real chef, having graduated from chef training at George Brown College in 2001. It seems my good fortune did not end there, as I immediately secured an apprenticeship under Chef Michael Rosano at the York Downs Country Club where after two years of hard work I gained my Canadian Red Seal certification as a chef.  

I was also very fortunate to have worked as the sous chef of a mentor, and very dear friend of mine, Italian Master Chef Pasquale Carpino who taught me that food is art, and art is communication. And in this way, a kitchen is your stage, and your guests are your audience.

My travels through Europe, South America, the Caribbean, Mexico, Canada and the US have given me real experience with the foods that make up our small, yet diverse, world. In every country Ilearned how to make amazing dishes and became immersed in a unique culture. And although cuisines vary widely throughout the world, I came to appreciate that we all share the same values: Friendship, love, and enjoyment of what life gives us. And we all tend to share these things around the dinner table.    

Life as a chef has been filled with fire, interesting people, and good culinary adventures! My reward and motivation has always been the smile on people’s faces as they enjoy my food. I consider myself very fortunate to do this for a living – I get to create delicious dishes, improve the quality of people’s lives, and meet interesting people every day of the week! For over 10 years have had the pleasure and privilege of being your personal chef.

For those of you about to use our services for the first time, I look forward to meeting you, and providing you with the best that my service has to offer.

My professional staff of chefs, servers and bartenders has helped make us the #1 personal chef service in the Tampa Bay area. And we look forward to making our services #1 in your home too!
