ServicesChef Services and Event Planning
My private chef services can accommodate events of all sizes, from the intimate gathering at home to the grand corporate event. The planning and execution of every detail will be provided for you, as my services include menu planning, ingredient selection and purchase, full course preparation, serving and post-event cleanup.
For all of your catering needs, I will work with you on the menu development and staffing for all occasions at home, estate or corporate event. The food can be prepared at your home, or it can come prepared from my kitchen to yours.
I will work with the principals to determine staffing needs for events and household staff. In addition, the selection process will be very detailed to ensure a correct fit. I will develop job descriptions for all staff defining specific job responsibilities for home or office. Daily activities will be assigned for housekeeping, grounds keeping, gardening and maintenance personnel, as well as added duties for special events.
I will coordinate and supervise all activities of your home with an emphasis on schedules, organization and staffing.
