Private Chef - Farm Fresh Vegetarian Fare

Vegetarians delight in this meat-free yet sophisticated meal highlighting fresh ingredients.

Let farm fresh vegetables be the star of the show in this indulgent four-course meal with Chef Alex. This meal, which highlights the beauty of vegetables harvested at peak ripeness, begins with eggplant caponata with perfectly toasted bread crumbs, and cauliflower soup with goat cheese and a drizzle of spicy chili oil. Roasted mushroom risotto steals the show, accentuated with salty Parmesan and thyme. Finally, polenta upside down cake with juicy blueberries.

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

This was one of the best experiences! Alex was so patient and friendly during the entire process. My wife was so happy that I surprised her with this experience on our anniversary. I would definitely recommend others to try!

Alex was awesome! We did a couples class and learned how to make cacio e pepe. It was one of the best pasta dishes we've ever had! The recipe was super easy to follow, and he showed us many tips and tricks along the way. Alex was super easy to get along with and talk to, and he made the whole experience enjoyable. He really exceeded expectations, would highly recommend!
