ReMARKable Palate Personal Chef Service

As a Personal Chef, I come to your home at your convenience, and do all the work, saving you time and money, and assuring that you get exactly the meals you want, when you want them.


Whether it’s regular weeknight meals for the family, specialty diets for those dealing with autoimmune issues (including Paleo, Keto, Plant Paradox, Whole 30 and AIP), stocking the freezer with meals for a new mother, a Dinner Party, a special Romantic Dinner for Two, or an in-home cooking lesson for you and your friends, I am here to provide you with fresh, custom made meals, and an entertaining time.


On these pages you’ll find information about my service and menus, and photos of some of my dishes.


Please call me at

(917) 405-0088

and we’ll discuss your specific needs.


Please Note: in light of the COVID-19 situation in the world, I'm taking extra precaution to keep my clients safe during this time. As a Serv-Safe Certified Food Handler, I ALWAYS take great care to follow all industry standards and guidelines for food safety, but in addition, I will take the following steps upon entering your premises:

I will immediately wash my hands and face

I will bring a change of fresh clothing and shoes to wear inside your home

I will wash fruits and vegetables and disinfect containers

Personal Chefs tend to wash our hands 10-15 times per hour on a normal day. You can rest assured that I will continue to do so!

"Remarkable Chef Mark delivers big time! Really created not only a wonderful meal, but also a meaningful experience."

Keith Drayer, NYC

"Chef Mark Tafoya was an absolute pleasure! Not only was he pleasant and helpful while we were making menu selections but the food exceeded our expectations and was beyond delicious! He is a very talented chef! We had a wonderful evening and would definitely do it again! Thanks." 

Andrea & Matt K, Westchester

"Chef Mark was fantastic!! He was knowledgeable and personable. The meal was superb. He helped with ideas for the dinner, then shopped, cooked and cleaned up afterward. He worked hard, yet interacted with us while preparing the dinner, and became a part of the family. We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening and look forward to doing it again in the near future."
