Years of Participation


I was born and raised on the island of St.Thomas, U.S.V.I., and developed a love for food at the age of 10. By the age of 18 had completed culinary training, and for 20+ years I have honed my skills and continue to live out my passion for the culinary arts. Over the years I've developed a personal cooking style focused on maximizing flavor and marrying new ingredients with ones people are familiar with.
Amalie(a) is a Personal chef  and events  service that allows us to bring five-star restaurant quality meals into the comfort of your own home . You can now relish in a luxury experience while you entertain, and the beauty of it all is that you can enjoy your own event without cooking and cleaning!
Also, as we expanded to a pop-up dinner series, Amalie(a) is based on our desire to bring attention and elevation to chef's home cuisine; that of the Caribbean. In doing these dinners, his passion is to bring people closer to the Caribbean, its ingredients, its culture, history, and at the same time bring acclaim to a cuisine that has, in his opinion, been overlooked, through thoughtful flavors, presentation, and an experience that delights and pleases.
