I am a chef specializing in California-inspired seasonal and sustainable cooking. This means my dishes evolve with the calendar turning and are planned veg first/veg forward. To me, this keeps our food fresh and alive and, maybe most importantly, interesting while always being delicious. 

Private events (dinners and smaller events) are my specialty. Menus are always customized to the desires and dietary needs of your guests and any additional cooking or service staff needed will always be the most professional and friendly. 

Additionally, I am also available to work exclusively for one family or group be it for one day, one week, or one year, based on availability. 

I have the luckiest job in the world. Nearly every time I go to work, someone is celebrating something. It is my honor to help make your celebration truly memorable. 

Operating all over Southern California,I can be available from Santa Barbara to Palm Springs.

We offer a suite of private chef and full-service catering solutions, including individual dinner parties, brunches, weddings, and corporate events. Operating all over Southern California, we’re available from Santa Barbara to San Diego to Palm Springs.

 

As the world begins to get back on its feet and we embrace the new normal, we’re all craving joyful moments with friends and loved ones. The most meaningful memories are made by gathering to break bread and commune through food, and we’re here to make your event thoroughly special with an unforgettable gastronomic experience.

Our Food

Our menus showcase the finest local and international flavors. Featuring both elevated classic and experimental fusion recipes, our dishes range from simple to refined. Current menus feature three levels of classic and new American cuisines; Italian; Provençal; San Francisco/Paris Bistro; Vegan Vegetarian; and California Mediterranean flavors, among others. We have BBQ feasts, Mexican celebrations and restorative brunches (complete with Bloody Mary and Mimosa Bars).


We also publish a new menu to highlight the abundance of each season, focusing on the best produce our farms, ranches, dairy, and fish suppliers have to offer. Californian food is a feast for the senses, its seasons offering a profusion of colors, tastes and aromas that revive the palate and soothe the soul. Vibrant beets, tangy rhubarb, woody chicory and sweet clementines can be found amongst other local flavors we draw on for our dishes, inspired by the beauty of our golden state. 


Just looking for some nibbles for a cocktail party? We can provide an array of small-plate appetizers from our Rat Pack Cocktail Hour menu, perfect for mingling. Other choices are designed around standard four-course templates that can be customized, mixed and matched across the various themes, ideal for a beautifully presented tasting selection. We’re more than happy to work with you to tailor plans for your specific needs.
