Introduction
As the Chef and Owner of Bistro Ember in San Francisco, I bring over 15 years of culinary expertise garnered from my experiences in Michelin-starred restaurants and luxury hotels. In addition to leading Bistro Ember, I also offer personalized private chef services tailored to individual preferences and occasions. My culinary journey began with a profound dedication to the art of gastronomy, which led me to pursue formal education in Gastronomy and Culinary Arts at Pamukkale University, followed by the completion of a Master’s degree in Gastronomy at Canakkale University in Turkey. With a solid foundation in both theoretical knowledge and practical skills, I’ve honed my craft to deliver exceptional dining experiences in a variety of settings. In my private chef endeavors, I collaborate closely with clients to curate bespoke menus that reflect their unique tastes, dietary preferences, and culinary aspirations. Whether it’s an intimate dinner party, a celebratory event, or a corporate gathering, I strive to exceed expectations by crafting dishes that not only tantalize the taste buds but also evoke a sense of delight and satisfaction. Drawing inspiration from my extensive culinary background and the diverse flavors of California, I infuse each private dining experience with creativity, innovation, and a deep respect for seasonal ingredients. From sourcing the freshest local produce to executing intricate cooking techniques, I ensure that every dish is a masterpiece worthy of celebration. My dedication to excellence extends beyond the kitchen, as I work tirelessly to create a seamless and memorable dining experience for my clients. Whether it’s orchestrating the perfect menu, coordinating with event planners, or providing impeccable service, I am committed to delivering nothing short of perfection in every aspect of my private chef endeavors. With a passion for culinary exploration and a commitment to culinary excellence, I invite you to embark on a gastronomic journey with me, where every bite tells a story and every meal leaves a lasting impression.

Wow! What a wonderful experience. Chef Muhammet was wonderful. He was a one man show but impressively accommodated our group of 11. There were a lot of last minute changes/dietary needs we had to request and Chef Deniz was so great and easy going with from a communication/accommodation perspective. The whole place was spotless by the time he left. I would absolutely book again!!!

I absolutely loved how Chef Deniz has us amazed with the Turkish culture and cuisine. He was the perfect host who was committed to give us the best experience in terms of food. He was patient enough to listen to our needs and took care of each and every guests in aa very warm manner. I would recommend him in a heart beat.

Chef Deniz was wonderful. Him and his partner catered to 18 girls and did a great job considering I didn’t give him a lot to work with. He was professional and went beyond expectations. He left the kitchen so clean after. The entire process was so easy. I’d recommend him to my friends
