Private Chef Service: Photos 2015

This past summer I made my first foray into the world of private chef services. Until this summer, I had prepared an occasional private event, usually for good customers of the restaurants I was involved with, or for friends. But I have found that I really enjoy this type of work and now I want to make it a larger part of the services I offer.

This service will be a premium one. I don’t want to do weddings for 300 guests but, instead, private dinner parties with customized menus. The menus may be presented as buffets, plated and coursed events, or as tasting menus with a variety of options. I will also offer paired food and beverage menus that reflect the use of locally grown fruits and vegetables, locally sourced fish and meats and locally produced wines, beers, ciders and coffee. I also prefer to work with organic and bio-dynamic foods.

  • Tasting menus
  • Dinner parties
  • Plated meals
  • Carefully crafted buffets
  • Food and beverage pairings
  • Small weddings and celebratory events
  • International foods and street foods

I can provide these services worldwide for customers who live or entertain outside of the United States. Customers will need to provide the event venue, whether it be a private home, a public space, or a winery setting. If rentals are necessary for an event we can deal with it in a flexible manner.

Here are some photos of food I prepared in 2015. There are endless options for menus and dinner party themes and these photos are examples of what I have made in the past.
