Private Chef - Vibrant Italian Specialties

Explore four vegetarian dishes inspired by signature Italian ingredients with Chef Ekta.

This elegant private chef experience features a handful of decadent recipes well-loved in Italy. Begin with crusty bread topped with pears, walnuts and brown butter ricotta, and a crisp Caesar salad. For the main course, choose from risotto starring seasonal produce, like asparagus or wild mushrooms, or homemade pasta dressed in a silky cream and butter sauce. Chef Ekta will serve a classic dessert of panna cotta or olive oil cake for dessert.

Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to accompany the menu, and may request pairing recommendations from the chef upon booking.

Had a fun evening with friends and Chef Etka learning how to make pasta from scratch and other Italian dishes. Would recommend it to anybody looking for an outside-the-box idea for a fun evening learning and eating with friends.

Our evening with Chef Ekta was amazing! My partner and I booked the Indian Cooking class and received close, step-by-step instruction with lots of opportunity to ask questions and clarify all the steps. Hearing all about Chef Ekta's background and how she related to the dishes we made added so much to the cooking process, and she was well prepared with all the ingredients and cookware ready to go. We'd highly recommend Chef Ekta to anyone looking for an amazing evening of cooking. We'll definitely be taking everything we learned and trying it at home for ourselves!
