About Me.

Chef Alex Forsythe, owner and founder of Executive Chefs Services (www.1ecs.com) has been at the PGA facing triple-digit temperatures and has been preparing dishes for all the soir�es, which will wet the palette and keep the guests refreshed as they enjoy the PGA Championships. �We had Chef Alex do a Latin theme for our event and it was a really an excellent way to cool us off and make us hot to party� said 

Chef Alex's Cooling menu included:

Jicma, Strips with Jerk Spice and Tequila mist
Clear and Calms. Gin and Goslings Rum with Native mint. 
Margarita Moose Maitme, Sustainable shrimp. ugh
Planet Mushroom (varietal Chef choice) matched with 
Goat in Filo Cups.

I really recommend that you consider designing small dishes for your guests and also keeping your menu items small to enjoy picnic style under umbrellas or trees as you fight the heat to enjoy the PGA said Chef Alex Forsythe. "The Chefs at ECS travel around the world and are always prepared for any type of weather and have a deep concern for our environment."

For ten years, Executive Chef Services (ECS) has served as a chef-based referral service whose website allows clients to find the perfect professional chef for any occasion or location. Chef Alex Forsythe and the chefs of ECS know and appreciate the signs of global warming and understand the need to "go green" while remaining on the cutting edge for culinary delights. ECS chefs went "Green" in order to support the local farmers and provide the freshest quality produce for their menus. These high caliber chefs care about the clients and are paying more attention to the carbon footprint of every meal they create wherever they create it.

Chefs at ECS are also starting to offer "Environmental Chef Services," providing environmental and social awareness alongside their usual creative and quality gastronomical services. In addition to incorporate these values into their day-to-day lives and work, chefs Jody Kropt, Alex Forsythe, RJ Harvey, Daniel Herskovic and Daniel Asher will be participating in the "Eat Well Guided Tour of America," which is run by the non-profit organization Sustainable Table.

ECS chefs have catered at more than a score of home parties this year, in Colorado,San Francisco, the Caribbean, and in Tulsa. Demand for this type of intimate dining is becoming very�popular.� Due to the interest for in-home dining, Chef Forsythe� his caudre developed� collaborative chef services three years ago, ECS www.1ecs.com.� "People love the idea of an ECS chef coming to them�and being the entertainment", Chef Forsythe said. "It's an extraordinary undertaking to do these dinners and the patrons feel� the synergy of a unique presentaion of the chefs talent in this venue of the the site for whom the donation was extended.

���� ECS chefs are known for their attention to detail and constant pursuit of fresh ingredients including the promotion of local markets. We�visit the host via phone and in person several times to make sure all of the details are flawless. We make sure we know the workings of the venue are in�tune with�the event.� We want to make sure we know every detail.� This obsession to detail assures the host that the event goes off without a hitch. Often the ECS chefs will collaborate with one another.� For our chefs, this modern day roundtable event is extremely rewarding and gives the chefs an opportunity to express their talents and creativity.�

���� "Often, in newer homes, the kitchen is part of a great room, and the��
cooking goes on right there, as part of the festivities," Chef Forstyhe said. "Some of�the kitchens these days are very well appointed, and the hosts are��
really into cooking too which makes it really enjoyable. The best thing��
about it is they usually share some extraordinary bottles of wine," he said��
with a little laugh, sometimes donated but mostly from private cellars.��� 


But it's not all about the equipment. "The hosts are totally into food and��
cooking themselves," he added, "so they get a great thrill watching the chef��
at work and picking up their signature styles!"��
��
For some private dinners, the chefs bring sommeliers. Other times the hosts��
dig deep into their own wine cellars. In this case the�rep for Calistoga Vineyards was on hand 

to make suggestions and offer great varietals selections to match with each course.��

"What it comes down to is not the material things, which can consume you,��
but the time you spend with the people you love as chef Alex pours the Absinthe over the�Vanilla scented�organic sugar cube into a bath of�Chadon champagne communicating that this is how the French revolutions spawned. "How could you be any happier reveling in history and enjoying the good life?�
