Chef Bryce's Specialties


Delicious food and an incredible experience overall!

My family celebrated my parents’ 40th anniversary with a small family reunion in Asheville. We all love good food but don’t love the restaurant atmosphere and we wanted to spend time in the house we rented for the weekend. Chef Bryce delivered a creative, delicious, and beautiful three course meal for us. We were all blown away by each dish. Chef Bryce was so nice, professional, and easy to work with and he easily accommodated our allergies and ingredient preferences. He even plated up small portions so my 1.5 year old niece got to try everything (in her words: “yummy!”). This was our first time hiring a chef and the whole experience exceeded our expectations. I would recommend Chef Bryce to anyone!

Truly wonderful experience

Our family recently celebrated my husband’s birthday with a private chef experience from Chef Bryce Conrad. It was our first time having a meal like this, so I didn’t know what to expect. Within 24 hours of booking, Chef Bryce emailed me with all the info I needed and to schedule an intro call. When we spoke, he was prepared, professional and open to any/all questions. He made sure to keep me updated and check in a few days before the meal, so I felt reassured the entire time. When it came time for the meal, Chef Bryce arrived prepared with all food and cookware, made the most delicious meal and cleaned everything afterwards. (All the while, very patiently interacting with our toddler running around the kitchen.) Our three course meal was beyond delicious and thoughtfully crafted with local ingredients. We even had fresh flowers and beautiful place settings on the dining table. We all felt so special–it truly was a personalized and unique experience, not “just another dinner” at a restaurant. We especially appreciated getting to know him and his sous chef personally, all the while watching the meal being prepared and learning more about his craft. Overall, I highly recommend Chef Bryce for his amazing food and service, but mostly for who he is as a highly creative, skilled and kind human.

Welcome to my table.

I’m glad you are thinking of allowing me to be your chef. When you look through my menus, I hope you’ll be enticed to try offerings that are innovative, delicious and above all, soulful. My experience in a variety of culinary settings allows me to be somewhat of a chameleon in the kitchen, while retaining my own unique style. I assure you that my dedication to excellence will prove to be an asset to the success of your event.

My culinary style can only be described as global and produce forward. I love bringing out the natural color and flavor of the earth, while playing off the diverse cultural influences of Asia, Europe and South America. When I create a menu, there is intention behind every texture, color and ingredient on the plate, and I strive to deliver only excellence.

I began working in kitchens at the age of 16, moving through all positions in the back-of-house while learning everything I could about the operational side of the industry. I’ve helped lead catering events up to 400 people, and all before the age of 19. I worked a few other jobs outside of the industry while operating as a private caterer and chef, focusing more on developing the nuance of my culinary style. A few years later, I find myself on the precipice of rejoining an industry that I’ve loved from the first moment I stepped into the kitchen. This time with an incredible platform like Food Fire + Knives.

Finally, a little bit about me as more than a chef. I live around the Asheville area with my beautiful wife and daughter (soon to be two girls). We have a bernadoodle, love getting outside to hike these beautiful WNC mountains, and on the local rivers to whitewater raft. Family, fun and food are my focus in life, and I hope to share my passion with you all.

See you around the dinner table…

Our Top FAQs

1. Can I customize the menu?

Absolutely! All our menus are fully a la carte. Once you’ve decided on a chef, you’ll see a list of all the dishes they offer and you can choose the ones you’d like for your event.

2. How is your service priced?

You pay a fixed price per guest based on your menu, plus a small, all-inclusive booking fee to our platform. You’ll be able to see exactly what you’re paying when you make a booking. No hidden costs, ever.

3. How many guests can I invite?

As many as you like! Although for events with over 30 people, we ask that you reach out to us to make an event inquiry.

4. My group has multiple dietary restrictions

That’s absolutely fine! When finalizing your menu, please mention these under ‘Special Instructions.’ For instance, you can specify that you’d like to accommodate one vegan guest and one gluten-free guest for your at-home catering and your private chef will prepare suitable dish variants for those guests.

Each chef is fully vetted. We require at minimum one year of sous chef experience. Your chef has gone through an FCRA compliant background check and multiple interviews before joining our platform.

8. What is FFKs cancellation and refund policy?

We take pre-payment to secure your chef and simplify our service. No fumbling with payments after your event or dealing with multiple payments in different stages of the process. Much like our service, our return policy is simple and meant to protect you, our hosts and our amazing Chefs.

  • One week or more before your event we guarantee your refund.
  • During the week of your event we offer a 50% refund.
  • We will not be able to refund within 48 hours of your event. At this point your chef has not been available for other parties and has already planned for your event. *Please note all refunds are less processing and booking fees
