Love to entertain?

How much more fun is a party where you don’t have all the extra work to feed your guests?

 

Let us chef for the event – we plan the menu with you, do the shopping and then come to your kitchen before your guests arrive. We prepare, cook and display everything for you. Then, we clean the kitchen area before we leave.

Our food is always hand-made onsite from high quality ingredients and includes a variety of globally-inspired flavors.

Don’t see what you’re looking for on our current menu? Chef Jeff is happy to collaborate and create new items – he’s also continually adding new and seasonal items to the menu after running them through his “test kitchen” process.

Bite-sized Experience

Having a menu of bite-sized food for your party means your guests can easily socialize without trying to juggle flatware or sit in one place.

 

You also provide a unique experience for your guests, because people love talking about food and wine - Chef Jeff enjoys chatting with guests about menus, flavors, pairings…and even travel and cycling (his other passions).

Custom Extras

We also provide a custom-printed menu and other personalized touches to make your event even more special. 

Wine Pairings

We partner with Ruthe Roberts Wine Collective in Saratoga to provide you with suggested wine pairings. These aren’t wines you’ll see at Costco or BevMo – these are small producers in California that don’t even have tasting rooms yet!

Impress your guests with undiscovered, high quality wines that are great values!
