Chef Patrick White's Specialties



I booked with Chef Patrick in the fall for a work retreat in Isle of Palms. Everything from the initial phone call to the final clean up was 10/10. Not only did he work with me on an incredible menu, he executed it phenomenally. I would recommend Patrick to anybody!

Bachelorette Night In

I had my bachelorette party in Charleston, and I wanted to do a nice dinner. We had 10 people, so it was going to be challenging to get somewhere easily. My husband offered to pay for us to have a chef come to the house, and, after a lot of research, I picked Chef Patrick. I recommend Chef Patrick and this experience 100%. Chef Patrick was easygoing, fun, personable, and a joy to have in the kitchen. He and I created a personalized menu that was an absolute showstopper from start to finish. I just had one of my bridesmaids text me last week saying that she dreams of the Caesar Salad that he prepared (with biscuit croutons!) All of my bridesmaids have gushed about how much fun they had, how incredible the food was, and how much better it was to have an elevated dining experience in the comfort of our VRBO. I cannot say enough good things about Chef Patrick and his work – would definitely book again!

What a magical evening! Chef Patrick prepared one of the best meals I have ever had! We had a group of 12 celebrating the holidays. To a tee, everyone was so pleased and thought it was a great experience! We would not hesitate to book Chef Patrick again. He was very gracious, entertaining and accommodating! Great job!
