Private Chef Parties are a great way of creating a memorable experience for your guest’s right in your own home. We will come to your home and set up for a minimum of five couples. Couples will gather around an island or kitchen countertop. We will furnish the food/wine and specific equipment needed to prepare each dish. Clients choose the dishes they wish to prepare (usually three) Events usually begin with an antipasti platter featuring various imported Italian meats, peppers, olives and cheeses. Selected wines are introduced and discussed. Next, attendees learn how to prepare two special dishes such as Classic Tuscan Tomato/basil bread soup (Pappa al Pomedoro), Ricotta Gnocchi, Shrimp Tosca, Chicken Saltimbocca, Ricotta Meatballs, Mussels in lemon white wine sauce, or Bucatini carbonarra, etc. Usually each event takes about two hours or can be geared for a shorter period of time. Attendees are given copies of each recipe so they can try them out at home. Costs per person may vary according to time, recipe ingredients, and wine selection (usually $65-$85).
