Private Chef - A Voyage Through Italy

Experience the robust flavors of authentic Italian cuisine in a magical night of fine dining.

Indulge in a range of regional Italian flavors in this private chef experience with Chef Denis. He serves you the best of Italy from the Alps to Sicily, in courses that exude authentic flavor, such as stuffed yellow peppers and a seaside delicacy, frutti di mare with tomatoes and olives. For the main course, Chef Denis treats you to succulent osso bucco served with wild mushroom risotto, and for your Italian dessert, you will enjoy a sweet baked ricotta budino topped with mixed berries.

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

Denis' knowledge of cuisine and sublime cooking made for a memorable anniversary. Highly recommend if you want to excite your palate with a scrumptious meal.

What an amazing experience! We wanted to try something new and have a gourmet dinner without having to go out. Chef Denis sure did deliver that. He was prompt, had excellent communication, curated an amazing menu, was very thorough and kind and showed up to serve us dinner in the middle of a snow storm! We are already planning our next dinner party. Thank you so much for everything, the food was truly delicious and everything was grand!

What a super unique and personal experience! I booked this a birthday gift for my husband, and the both of us loved all 3 courses. Besides meal leftovers, we were given extra ingredients (sauce, dough, cheese, etc.) to keep and use for later - that was an unexpected but lovely surprise. Chef Denis was very accommodating and personable with plenty of stories to share. I would book again for other cuisines!
