Our Story...

Tim's Family, dark trees

Hello everyone, I am Tim Armstrong, Founder and Operator of The Hybrid Chef located in Jupiter, Florida.  My wife and I brought our two young children to Abacoa almost 15 years ago, and we are proud to call it home.

Before arriving back in 2009, our journey together started in New York City, where we met in the first restaurant I worked in after graduating with honors from The Culinary Institute of America.  Lucky for me, she was a starving artist looking to making ends meet while working on her modern dance career.

After 4 ½ years in New York City, working as a sous chef at Lenox Room, Petrossian and Blue Fin, it was time to move away from the culinary capital of the world and focus on starting a family.

Moving just over the state line into Connecticut, I took my first Executive Chef position, working under Celebrity Chef Michael Lomonaco of Windows on the World.  Other stops in my culinary path included restaurant consultation and running other kitchens in Charleston, South Carolina and the West Palm Beach area.

As my kids were beginning to grow up and get involved with sports and other school activities, I realized my career needed to change if I wanted to see their milestones as they grew.  Seeing there was a need that could be filled while at the soccer fields, an idea was born.  The Hybrid Chef began to grow into a meal prep & delivery company that also offers private and personal chef services, in-home dining, corporate catering and culinary education.



After 7 1/2 years, The Hybrid Chef is no longer providing meal prep or catered events.  Currently, my focus is on working to help individuals make themselves and/or their families healthier through their food choices, preparation and execution.  Whether I am creating a plan that includes menus, recipes, ongoing ingredient delivery and cooking lessons or providing you with a raw diet for your dogs, The Hybrid Chef can help in your pursuit of excellence.

Give us a call and we can prepare dog food for your most trusted 4-legged friends.  The benefits of raw dog food are endless including allergy control, weight control, a great looking coat, healthy teeth & gums, and smaller, much firmer feces due to the elimination of all of the 'fill' in kibble
