Our Culinary Style:

Our hyper-local ingredient-focused chefs are always pushing the boundaries of culinary innovation to create new and exciting menu concepts for our clients. With countless hours spent in our test kitchens, we are constantly developing and enriching our recipes to ensure that we provide the best private chef dining experiences in the industry. We carefully combine flavors, aromas, textures, and temperatures to curate highly tailored dishes that are not only delicious but also memorable for years to come.

We pride ourselves on sourcing our ingredients primarily from small, independent, family-owned, fair-wage, and fair-trade farms located right here in Northern California. For our global cuisine menus, we seek out ingredients from the far reaches of the earth to create flavors that are not only authentic but also true to their ingredient profiles.

Our chefs are masters of creativity, adaptability, and flexibility in their cuisine styles, which allows us to custom-tailor any menu item down to the ingredient level to deliver you and your guests the perfect bite. We create our own unique sauces, marinades, spice blends, and preserves from scratch to enhance the depth of flavor and complement any style of cuisine that you may wish to enjoy. Additionally, we design our menus with fresh seasonal herbs and ingredients while also incorporating the world's finest spirits and wines.

Above all, we are committed to providing warm and personal hospitality, ensuring that every aspect of your private chef dining experience is nothing short of exceptional.
