My name is David Shalleck. With over thirty years cooking in the United States and abroad— from running the kitchens in fine dining restaurants and the galleys of private yachts, to producing nationally broadcast food television series and teaching on luxury cruise ships—I created VOLOCHEF® to be the ultimate go-to developer of concepts, ideas, and products for the table, page, and screen.
HOME KITCHEN PLANNING
FOOD PRODUCT INNOVATION
A true chef’s kitchen is functional and efficient. It has plenty of storage and it’s easy to clean. That’s just the beginning. If you’re thinking about a remodel, new construction, or reorganization, there will be many decisions to make. Contact me to arrange a consultation before you see your contractor, designer, or visit a showroom. By planning early with a chef’s perspective, you’ll love cooking in your new kitchen.
A credible food voice. Engaging storytelling. Easy to find ingredients. Clear directions. These are the hallmarks of great recipes. The rewards? Reliance and loyalty from your fans. My recipe development strives to inspire one to make your food, use your product, or taste your ingredient. Need more? Alluring recipes are valuable marketing tools.
Tastes and trends change. Interesting flavors come home from abroad. The need for better health and wellness is upon us. In turn, food product and food service providers must evolve and keep with the times. Under the halo of the Mediterranean Diet, I’ll bring clever concepts, insightful ideation, and practical expertise to your project.
How will you move around the set or stage? Which pans, gadgets, and tableware will be used? What will be prepped in the back kitchen? When do we pause to swap something braising to save production time? With years of hands-on experience in food television and live events, I’ll take care of these and much more so you have a successful performance.
Your recipes are tested. Mouthwatering pictures of your food are taken. Then how-to videos are produced. Before you know it your new bakery becomes a reality. While all of these outlets are produced differently, continuity throughout is paramount. I can help you manage this along the way.
I’d love to learn more about your project. From a single service to multi-phase assignments, I can customize my services to your needs. Depending on the scope and deliverables, rates vary. Please contact me for an estimate.
