Private Chef - Rustic European Surf and Turf

Chef Lorenzo transforms the iconic pairing of land and sea into an elegant European menu.

In this private chef experience, Chef Lorenzo presents a unique interpretation of surf and turf inspired by signature ingredients of the Italian countryside with French technique. Begin with buttery vol au vent with salmon and ham. Next up, beef tonnato featuring tender steak in a hearty sauce served with a fagiolini salad. For dessert, enjoy torta della nonna, a creamy Italian tart with almonds.

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

Chef Lorenzo is by far the best host I’ve ever had! Chef Lorenzo is extremely outgoing and knowledgeable about cooking. There was not one awkward moment with him as conversations changed from cooking to other topics with ease. By far the best cooking class my wife and I ever had because of his hospitality and wisdom of cooking as he can explain how to use ingredients and why to use those ingredients. He explained cooking like I’ve never heard before. Thank you chef for an amazing class! I’ll definitely be recommending my friends and I’m looking forward signing up for more classes!

Chef Lorenzo began cooking at the age of 13 in his home country of Italy, and his grandmothers helped greatly with his home kitchen education. After finishing culinary school, he headed to Australia to expand his skills as chef de partie and sous chef. From there, he moved to America, where he became head chef at eateries in Miami and the Bay Area. But Chef Lorenzo's true passion is teaching others about the real Italian kitchen!
