Private Chef Tampa Is A Culinary Breath of Fresh Air

By Jake Levin

Inspiration came from a legend of cooking for Peter Gambacorta.

As a teenager, he used to watch the world famous Julia Child's TV program The French Chef, which is widely acknowledged for bringing French cuisine to the mainstream American public. Gambacorta did his best to replicate these recipes, with moderate success.

In 2001, he went to the Culinary Institute of America beginning a second career after spending a number of years in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries..

Gambacorta believes it's the high quality organic ingredients from, when possible, locally sourced products that help Private Chef Tampa stand out.

"Beautifully platted and intense flavor profiles to hit your taste," he said.

Gambacorta said that someone should choose Private Chef Tampa to cater their event, no matter how big or small, if they enjoy foods made with pride, the highest quality products and unique presentations.

Italian cuisine has become what Private Chef Tampa is known for, rather than Gambacorta's initial influence of French dishes. The cuisine is unique, he said, with simple but flavorful dishes from each region different from one another due to geography, culture and agricultural products based on climate.

"Thirty of your closest friends and family have gathered to celebrate your special day. You're spending time talking, laughing and celebrating and you are not in the kitchen or refilling the buffet. Private Chef of Tampa takes on the catering menu, presentation and butler duties leaving you free to have fun hosting your private affairs, corporate events, weddings and family fetes," reads Gambacorta's website, www.privatecheftampa.com.

The website comes equipped with a Catering Kitchen Blog, as well as a full listing of chef services, special dishes and much more. The office is open Tuesday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is closed on Sunday and Monday. Private Chef Tampa is located at 19046 Bruce B. Downs Blvd., Suite 62 in Tampa.
