Private Chef - Plant-Based Italian Dream

You'll be delighted to discover just how satisfying this plant-based Italian meal truly is.

In this private chef experience, Chef Teresa will leave meat behind, but she will not come up short on incredible flavors! Begin your night with a crisp arugula salad topped with vegan Parmesan, followed by from-scratch pasta in fresh pesto sauce. Next, savor cauliflower cutlets atop a hearty polenta. For dessert, delight in the rich flavors of a tangy-sweet "ricotta" cake.

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