Our party of 6 had a remarkable evening with Chef Evan. The prep/communication before the evening was great- he put together a super impressive menu meeting our groups needs. The night of the meal was smooth and fun- the food was so good and he even left us with some leftovers we enjoyed the next day. Our group enjoyed the intimate setting and would highly recommend for your group. Thank you for a memorable night!

Chef Evan is awesome to work with. We worked out the menu exactly the way we wanted and the food is delicious! 4 course dinner finished with delicious soufflé. What a great way to celebrate my wife’s birthday.

FAQs

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

    I have a $500 minimum. Otherwise I charge a per person rate. I do charge CA state sales tax at whatever the applicable rate is for the location of the event/dinner (typically 7.75% but varies depending on location.) My 4 course plated dinners typically range from $110-$175. That price would increase if a server is needed or if the food is expensive ie wagyu, crab legs, whole lobsters, things like that, or if more courses are added.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    After restaurants closed again in December of 2020 because of Covid, I decided to pursue my own venture and I started Whisks & Knives.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Families, couples, friends, work colleagues.
