I believe in the power of food as a tool for connection, sharing stories, and creating memories for years to come.

As a private chef, I offer customized service to my clients by guiding them from the initial steps of planning through the day of their event; effortlessly hosting a one of a kind experience that is seamless and memorable for both themselves and their guests.

I provide an initial consultation to discuss the intention behind your gathering, and then incorporate specific dietary needs and culinary interests to create a customized menu design. I utilize local, seasonal, and organic ingredients as often as possible.

I’d love to hear more about your gathering and help you plan a meaningful and memorable event.

Please contact me with questions, inquiries, and consultation requests.
