Private Chef - Authentic Italian Meets Fine Dining

Lose yourself in a unique, flavor-bursting Italian feast prepared by Chef Blake.

This private dining experience from Chef Blake fuses fine dining with hearty Italian-Roman fare. The meal, which crescendos with each course, begins with a bright and citrusy grilled Caesar salad, followed by a cheese and pepper spaghetti known as cacio e pepe. For the main course, you will be treated to a rustic pork steak (or a substitute seafood item) cooked with vinegar peppers and onions. For dessert, indulge in a decadent Italian chocolate cake.

I’ve had the good fortune to enjoy dozens of meals prepared by Chef Blake. To say that he’s an extraordinary chef is simply insufficient to describe the magic that he conjures whether he’s working with an array of unlimited ingredients or concocting a masterpiece with the limited materials I have in my kitchen. This is to say nothing of his beautiful plating. Chef Blake brings creativity, inspiration, intuition and deep experience to everything he creates. Not to mention Blake is kind, honest, easy-going and has always been a pleasure to work with. Would highly recommend!

Chef Blake helped me host a private dinner for 8 friends. He took our suggestions and incorporated much more exciting local and seasonal ingredients than we realized were available to us! In addition to being a great Chef, Blake's charismatic personality was a welcome addition to our party. Professional and fun, can't beat that for an at-home experience.
