Private Chef - Italian Feast With a Modern Twist

Treat yourself to mouthwatering Italian dishes prepared just for you in your home.

Italian cuisine draws on hundreds of years of tradition, but there's still leaves plenty of room for innovators like Chef Melissa to explore new spins on classic dishes. In this private experience, you'll enjoy a feast prepared by a chef who's cooked Italian for as long as she can remember.

For the appetizer, choose between options like fresh arugula salad and zucchini noodles. The dazzling entrée takes the form of either stuffed peppers, chicken parmigiana, or turkey bolognese, while dessert can be anything from homemade Nutella to mini cannolis.

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