Chef Ricky began learning about food at an early age thanks to his loving mother, Sherry. He has always loved to cook, but he never made it a priority or thought about going to school to make it his profession.
Chef Ricky entered the world of culinary arts a little later in life as a career change at age of 32. He attended the Community Culinary School of Northwestern Connecticut in New Milford. Under the guidance of two extremely talented chefs and staff, D.H. and B.R., Chef Ricky uncovered his true calling and passion for food. At that point he knew what he was meant to do!
Upon completing the culinary program in 2009, he continued his internship at Adrienne Restaurant as a member of the staff in New Milford, CT, for an additional four months to hone his skills and continue learning. With the help, encouragement and passion for the world of culinary arts given to him by this experience, Chef Ricky continued to expand his knowledge and open doors to great opportunities early in his culinary career.
Later Chef Ricky was hired at the number 12 county club in the United States as a member of the staff at the Westchester Country Club. Under the supervision of Chef Edward G. Leonard (CMC), Chef Ricky continued to expand his knowledge and experiences while continuing to develop essential skills in the professional kitchen.
While at the Westchester County Club, Chef Ricky had the distinguished pleasure and honor of cooking for the NFL Team the New York Giants as well as many other world famous athletes and politicians! The New York Giants held their annual golf outing at the country club in 2010.
After gaining both valuable skills and knowledge from his time with the Westchester Country Club, Chef Ricky decided to open Classy Catering Creations. This new venture would provide him the opportunity to continue to provide superior food and unmatched service to the general public.
Chef Ricky has a combined total of over 5 years in the world of culinary arts. His eye for precision and dedication to each of his clients shines through the food and dishes he prepares, every day.
