Icon indicating the class is social distancing friendly Social Distancing Friendly

A hearty and rustic menu of dishes inspired by the Tuscany region of Italy.

Let Chef Charles treat you to a Tuscan farmhouse dinner made of fresh ingredients sourced from the chef's garden. Because the Northern California climate is so similar to Tuscany's, you'll be treated to an authentic Tuscan dining experience. Begin with a peppery arugula salad with strawberries and a tangy orange vinaigrette, followed by roasted zucchini with a bright mint-chili vinaigrette. For the main course, enjoy handmade pappardelle pasta with hearty bolognese sauce made using the chef's family recipe. Dessert is a simple, yet delicious panna cotta with a berry compote.

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

I hired Charles last minute for an at-home birthday dinner for my husband. We were so pleased with the experience! The food was fantastic and he took the time to teach us a thing or two and to share his favorite Bay Area restaurants. We’d love to see him again, perhaps for a class with friends.

Food was a 10/10, great taste! Chef Charles was friendly and arrived on time. However, he did appear a bit sloppy. Wearing flip flops, a tee shirt, and a zip up hoodie, I was a bit nervous if we had the right person coming to cook us dinner. Overall, we liked the food, just a lack of professionalism.
