Explore the beautiful simplicity of Japanese cuisine with Chef Giocchino.

In this private chef experience, Chef Giocchino highlights Japanese cooking through a combination of simple ingredients and distinct flavors. Begin with a classic soba noodle bowl with sesame-ginger dressing and fresh vegetables. Next, enjoy crispy shrimp tempura with a soy-mirin dipping sauce, and miso-glazed cod, steamed rice and soy-glazed bok choy for your entrée. Finish with a matcha-infused crème brûlée topped with mint and fresh berries.

I've had Gio's cooking on several occasions, and every single time I was impressed. Having him as a private chef is a great experience because not only is the food always delicious, but he is also naturally charismatic, accommodating, and a great person to be around. I would highly definitely recommend his services to anyone I know, and I look forward to experiencing his dishes in the future.
