Whether you’re looking for a formal sit-down dinner with professional table service, or a relaxed cocktail party with a group of friends, hire a personal chef to turn your home into the most exclusive dining room in town. We cater anything from unfussy summer soirees to stylish seven-course menus fit for the world's finest restaurants.
Our chefs maintain the established European traditions of local, seasonal, and sustainable cooking by incorporating fresh meats, produce, and dairy from regional farms, from our unique network of ultra-local private neighborhood growers, and from the chefs’ own organic gardens. This provides our clients with private access to vegetables, herbs, and fruits not readily available to the public, harvested the day of your event.
