Chef Kerry Inc.

Welcome to the brand new CKI site! The layout may be different, but my commitment to preparing you the best food with superior, friendly service remains a constant.

Despite the fancy new website with all its glitz and glamour, I'm actually a very laid back, simple guy. I will gladly cook any menu, in the format and venue of your choice. With all of the infinite cuisines, and styles of service, I know it can be difficult to choose. That's why I've listed some of my favorite dishes below. 

Most folks are either looking for a hors d'oeuvre party (passed appetizers), plated dinner party, family style meal, buffet, or some combination of those styles. Costs are based on the number of guests, cost of the groceries, amount of staff needed, and amount of time needed to prepare the menu. Visit the "Cost To You" page for more information.
