    About this pro

    My cooking style is a combination of the flavors and techniques from the Pacific Northwest to South America and the Mediterranean — especially Italy. As a California native, I like to bring new influences into my cuisine. Bringing people together to enjoy a delicious meal is what drives me. I cook each dish as if I were serving it to my own family. I provide chef services for the following: * Private dinner parties in clients' homes * Cocktail parties in clients' homes * All occasions - anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, bachelorette and wine country getaways
