Private Chef In Sonoma

Chef David Mau

Get to know me better

Chef, culinary commentator, writer and lover of all things food.

My family settled Sonoma in 1849 and my indigenous ancestors go back for millennia. After a dynamic career as a Chef, Writer and Photographer I’m back where I am meant to be living this next chapter of my culinary journey. Sonoma and the region mean a lot to me and I love sharing my experiences from the OC to High Sierra as well."

I pride myself on being super easy to work with. Food should be fun and as a writer I love to talk cuisine and restaurant culture, it’s a passion of mine to create a narrative for my guests. Most of all I like to craft memories as well as dishes, let’s have a meal to remember!

More about me

For me, cooking is...

An act of profound skill and dedication to people and the culinary craft.

I learned to cook at...

Beside my Father as a child and onto my professional journey from the hip, urban spots to the California wilderness.

A role model in the kitchen is...

Every Grandmother who cooks with care for their loved ones.

A cooking secret...

Good company is the best ingredient and pretense makes a lousy garnish
