Born and raised in Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love, Dennis Ortiz grew up cooking with his mother Doris in the kitchen. He also spent two years in Honduras, where he was inspired by his aunt Gaby’s kitchen creations. Throughout his teen years, he would also spend summer’s working with his father Roberto, for his uncle Rupert’s general contracting company. After a long hot day of work, they’d usually grill out, where he developed his love of cooking to a deeper level. He enjoyed cooking so much, he was nominated the official family cook for get togethers and family celebrations. Dennis was very fortunate to come from a family full of cooks, so he decided to pursue his career in culinary arts.

After twenty years in the restaurant, and hospitality business, he continues to demonstrate his devotion through Cooking with Love, where he gets to express his passion in the kitchen.

Cooking with Love’s mission is to give their customers a great food experience. Whether it’s a tasting at a cooking demonstration, meal prep delivery, drop off catering, or a three-course meal for your next private event, they’ll make sure everything is perfect, personalized, and prepared to your dietary needs.

I contracted Dennis for my annual Christmas luncheon at home, attended by close to 35 sisters, girlfriends, female clients & colleagues. Dennis was extremely professional, worked closely with me to put together the precise menu I wanted for my guests, and was diligent in ensuring our meal was exceptional.  Dennis had the brilliant idea of having guests engaged in the preparation of a few items that lent themselves for demonstration.  The food was amazing, plus Dennis’ friendliness and great, relaxed demeanor was enjoyed by all in attendance.  And equally important, Dennis ensured that, before leaving, everything was packed and cleaned.  We look forward to working with him again soon.

Chef Dennis did a GREAT job teaching my class of diabetics about planning and preparing healthy meals. He knows what he’s talking about! The nutritious food he prepared for the class was superb. Dennis is a real gem.

Cooking with Love is a local business with a home cooked feel to all of their dishes with health conscious options. I highly recommend getting your next meal with them!”
