Get to know me better
Personal chef for home dinners, small weddings and cocktail parties, as well as cooking lessons and meal prep.
I am a professional chef with over 15 years experience. I owned my own farm to table restaurant for 12 years where we focused on fresh, local ingredients. Our menu changed weekly to highlight what was in season. This allowed us to explore dishes from around the world and offer our guests new and exciting dishes every visit. That experience has been vital as a personal chef as it allows me to write custom menus featuring a wide variety of flavors tailored to my client's specific palate.
For me, cooking is...
Universal, it goes beyond age, race, gender, or nationality. No matter our differences or struggles it brings together family, friends, and strangers.
I learned to cook at...
growing up in an Italian household. Making fresh pasta and sauce. We always had a large garden that the whole family helped in.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Ivan Orkin. He was an outsider in the ramen world, but his passion and dedication led him to greatness.
A cooking secret...
Passion and patience. That little extra detail is what can take a dish from ordinary to extraordinary. You can't rush and cut corners.
