Crave the Delicious!

Crave the Delicious!


Have comfort in the kitchen. Build an audience. Create lasting taste memories. Make guests hungry for more. This is the essence of deliciousness.

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, planner, and producer for the table, page, and screen.

What is a “chef’s kitchen”?  

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.

Culinary Production


Are you ready to cook in front of an audience?

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.
