I offer services as a private chef for groups ranging from a minimum of six guests to a maximum of twelve. The best way for you and your fellow guests to arrange for a meal is to have a conversation with me either by email or phone. I first confirm any food allergies, along with likes and dislikes of certain foods or cuisines preferences. From there I will forward two to four menus from which to choose. Those menus can certainly be modified, and if the selections are not to your liking, they can be changed.
My fee includes all food, service and clean up. Alcoholic beverages are not included.
Cooking classes are offered for groups ranging from a minimum of six guests to a maximum of fifteen. I offer Italian, French, Chinese Dim Sum along with certain pastry classes. Classes may be participatory, or demonstration. All food, materials and equipment are provided, as well as printed recipes. If you would like service and cleaning that can be provided at an additional cost.
Payment may be made by cash or check.
