Private Chef - Contemporary American Fare

Explore a traditional American meal with a modern spin for an upscale culinary event.

In this private chef experience, Chef Chad pairs traditional ingredients with a contemporary spin on classic dishes. Begin with turnip tartare in an earthy coffee vinaigrette, and roasted carrots with creamy burrata. For your main course, indulge in a perfectly prepared sirloin steak with charred chicories and lion's mane mushrooms, and lamb skewers with chili chutney. End with a modern take on apple pie and bourbon ice cream.

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

This awakening drove him to travel the West Coast and Southwest for pastry and private chef opportunities. Now settled in Southern California, Chef Chad shares his love of food with hungry clients and eager students.
