Our Own Chef Dave
by Luxury Rentals In Park City

Ah, the holiday season! Where most conversations and thoughts are about food and when friends and family gather to celebrate and give thanks.

We have our fair share of talented Chefs here in Park City and Deer Valley  and all of us at Luxury Rentals in Park City feel very fortunate to be working with our very talented Chef Dave Kratky of The Laughing Pear. Chef Dave is passionate about food and expressing his creations with unique food and wine pairings. Chef Dave began his love for cooking at the age of 14 at an Italian restaurant in South Florida. He continued on to receive his Associates Degree in Culinary Arts from the prestigious Florida Culinary Institute.

With several other courses from The Culinary Institute of America, Chef Dave says, “It is vital to continue learning and this is why I love what I do, you can ever learn enough.” He goes on to say, “Constant challenges are what I love and making the guest happy are really what it is all about!” Chef Dave has studied under such renowned Chefs as; Chef Pedro Seville from Spain; Chef Angelo Debucco from Italy and Chef Jean Louie Montecoat from France. Both culinary school training and training under such great chefs is what he believes has made him who he is today in his profession.
When you book your stay with us at Luxury Rentals in Park City, treat yourself to an amazing evening of culinary delights with our very own Chef Dave!

For all of the mouthwatering details about Chef Dave, check out his website at The Laughing Pear.

Cheers!

What People Have To Say About The Laughing Pear Catering:

Review - 1/22/14

EXCEPTIONAL VISION, QUALITY, AND CLIENT CARE! - We cannot begin to say enough wonderful things about The Laughing Pear! We are here in Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival. I am here representing my Film Production Company. So its crucial that we take great care of our clients. This is why we went with Chef David Kratky (Chef/Owner of the Laughing Pear) I have used Chef Dave in the past and of course, I wanted to have him again. 

Our event started on Friday and will go until the following Sunday when the Film Festival ends. Chef Dave has put together a marvelous catering venue for our guests. From the moment we began working with Chef Dave, we could tell that he was going to make our event spectacular and worry free. He did just that! We had very specific needs for our guests and Chef Dave handled it with great attention and ease. 

Gourmet Fine Dining is exactly what Chef Dave gave to us and My partners and I are having a very memorable time here at Sundance in Park City, Utah.. Due in part by our Favorite, Chef David Kratky. We could not have asked for a better caterer. If you are ever in the Park City, Utah, I highly recommend Chef Dave and the Laughing Pear...

Review

The first responsibility of any great experience is to keep you in the bubble, the soft-serve cocoon of illusion where you forget the world exists for anything but your pleasure. As Chef Dave and his superior team accomplished every detail with such grace. We we're so impressed with our 10 course meal. We felt as though we were in another atmosphere. 

Review

I have always had challenges with past Food and Beverage Catering/Private Events Functions. Chef Dave changed all that and from know on when ever we come and stay in our Home in Park City, Chef Dave is our CHEF!!! I am not one to recommend anyone. But I MUST say that I highly Recommend CHEF DAVE and The Laughing Pear Group!!!!

Hello Chef Dave :

We just got home from your beautiful Park City! We are all still talking about and reliving the phenomenal dinner you prepared for us! Without exception, every course was as promised: a unique and delicious experience! The food was exceptional, the presentation was beautiful, the service was impeccable and your attention to detail was beyond incredible! The time you spent preparing the dinner and cleaning up the kitchen after the meal was beyond expectation! The kitchen was spotless - if we didn't know better- we would never have known you had been there! Our only regret is that we didn't schedule more dinners with you !! You truly created an evening to remember! With heartfelt thanks and deep appreciation,

Cliff, Linda, Joe & Leslie Kemp and Brian and Lindsey Burik
