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 great class with Ekta, she was so encouraging and made the cooking so much fun. Her place was really cosy and made us feel really at home during the entire class. The food was delicious, and she provided take home recipes so we could recreate the meal at home!

Chef Ekta was so professional and my friend and I had an absolute blast making pasta - and we learned some really great cooking techniques! Definitely recommend!

The experience with chef Ekta was second to none! She was so well prepared, a wonderful host and teacher, and helped us learn and feel confident that we could apply what we learned with her at home. Her hand-kneaded pizza class was a surprise birthday gift for my partner, and he LOVED being able to ask her a ton of food science and pizza making questions. Chef Ekta is knowledgeable, friendly and fun. She was a real pleasure to get to know and learn from, highly recommend!
