Favorite Chef Finalist Pete O Byrne Set to Start High End Catering Business

Favorite Chef Finalist Pete O Byrne Set to Start High End Catering Business

The Favorite Chef Competition announces that finalist, personal chef, and YouTube influencer Pete O’Byrne has a high-end catering business in the works. O’Byrne, aka the ultimate entertainer, is best-known for preparing large groups elaborate multi-course meals, including his specialties, miso-glazed Chilean sea bass, espresso-rubbed New York strip, zucchini pasta, and crab-stuffed shrimp. He has built a fanbase over 10 years by videoing and posting his dishes from design to completion on his popular YouTube channel. After taking third place in the Favorite Chef Competition, O’Byrne and the other finalists were treated to an exclusive dinner, where they showcased their culinary skills in front of Iron Chef America winner celebrity chef Beau MacMillan at a private event in Paradise Valley, AZ. O’Byrne was also featured in a Bon Appétit advertorial spread as part of the prize package.  For this chef, every detail—from menu prep to plating—is as important as the next. “Five words that describe my food: Italian, passion, love, perfection, artistry,” he said. O’Byrne’s recent success has been the launchpad to elevate his personal chef brand and his new high-end catering business. O’Byrne lives in Jeffersonville, PA., about 30 minutes west of Philadelphia and 10 minutes from Valley Forge National Park.  Favorite Chef is an online voting competition exclusively designed with cooks, chefs, and culinary creatives in mind. The 2021 Competition was hosted by the legendary Chef Eddie Matney, a beloved Phoenix, AZ, restaurateur who is often recognized for his colorful personality. Favorite Chef, LLC donated over $1.1M from the Competition to Feeding America®, making an estimated 11.5 million meals available to communities in need during the pandemic.  Visit for more information on the Favorite Chef Competition and Chef O’Byrne.
