We hired Know Wine-ing to create a memorable celebratory family dinner in Calistoga. Communication was prompt and ongoing as we planned our event. Chef Gee was very helpful, making recommendations and accommodating our requests. We also hired his partner/wife who was equally delightful as a bartender and pastry chef (the chocolate cake was amazing!) From our salad course to the excellent pizzas and delicious paella, everyone was talking about our meal for days! We had enough paella for a second meal so the value was also a big plus. Clean-up was very thorough and we were able to visit and enjoy each other while Know Wine-ing did all the work, Ten of us highly recommend this talented and fun duo!

Details: Regular meal • 6 - 10 guests • Dinner • Cocktail hour / hors d'oeuvres • Premium (high end ingredients) • American - casual • American - formal • Italian • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

Travis and his wife created a meal for my group of 12 friends who rented a house in the Napa/Sonoma area to celebrate turning 40 this year. They did a wonderful job, we were so pleased with how delicious the meal was, how efficient they were with putting each dish out and cleaning up. Everyone agreed the turkey burger Travis made was the best they had ever tasted! I was also responsible for finding the chef for the trip and reached out to a number of people. Travis was definitely the most responsive and willing to work to create a meal that would be both special and fit in our budget. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a private chef in this area!

Details: Brunch / dinner party • 11 - 20 guests • Dinner • Standard (basic ingredients) • American - casual • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

Chef Travis and his wife provided an experience I will never forget. They came on-time, setup, transformed our dining space, served an amazing meal and then cleaned the entire kitchen. Chef Travis put together an exquisite menu (see photos). The aromas that came from the cooking were unbelievable. We had an interactive pasta making session which we loved. The food was amazing— something we will rave about for years to come. They are such kind people and we were so happy (and lucky) to have them. I cannot say enough good things. We will definitely be having them again next time we’re in the Napa valley. Don’t walk— run!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 3 - 5 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • Cold beverages (alcoholic) • Dessert • Italian • American - formal • French • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

Chef Gee and his lovely wife were amazing. We were in Napa on a long awaited girls trip. After a full day of visiting many wineries it was refreshing to come back to our rental and have Chef there to prepare dinner and dessert. We asked for a "Taste of Napa" and he delivered. His food was gastronomically mind blowing. He gave us a great education regarding wines and food pairing. To top things off he brought his guitar and sang for us - it was a wonderful finish to a fabulous evening. Thank you Chef!!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is honest and reflects the quality of ingredients that I use during preparation

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Each meal starts with a phone conversation to talk about the menu, dietary restrictions and preferences. I search for local farm to table produce based on what is in season and then I build a menu for you, complete with wine suggestions!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Sommelier II, Chef and business ownership
