My name is Christopher Wear and for the better part of the past thirty years, my life has revolved around the love of food and cooking. I started as a dishwasher and prep cook in a small French restaurant in upstate NY at the age of 10 and just kept going. I have traveled and cooked in a multitude of different restaurants and private settings all over the USA and the Caribbean. Over the years, my guests have been some of the most famous and influential people in the world.
I am a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, whose most recent experiences have been as manager and chef of a private estate and as chef aboard private yachts. My focus and goal is to create meals that are not only pleasing to the eye and palette, but also fulfill dietary and nutritional needs. I take particular pleasure in producing dishes that display the harvest of the season, using the freshest of local ingredients.
In the role of estate manager, I utilized my firsthand knowledge of mechanical contracting and construction, as well as, years of experience in the proper use and maintenance of machinery and tools. As a proactive, resourceful self starter and former proprietor of two catering companies, I employ the skills necessary for the effective organization and management of staff, resources and time, in order to operate a successful and efficient estate and/or business operation.
Having relocated from Florida this autumn, in order to be closer to family, I am currently looking for a new position as private chef and/or estate manager. Although food is my true passion and forte, I am open to and welcome additional responsibilities.
