Introduction: Hello. Thinking about a dinner party or small wedding but daunted by the expense? Let Chef Tom take care of your catering needs be they large or small. Wine Country escapes to VRBOs, Air Bnbs and wineries have become all the rage for small weddings, bachelorette parties, birthdays, you name it. After a day of wine tasting, what could be better than to relax in a hot tub while your chef prepares a 5-star meal? Or, mingle with your guests while awaiting a gourmet dining experience. I prepare a wide variety of cuisines, from standard American and Wine Country to French, Thai, Italian, Mexican, Indian, Middle Eastern and vegetarian. Whether you are looking for a backyard BBQ, full service wedding or a formal, plated dinner party Chef Tom Pace is a great choice.

Chef Tom responded quickly to us and was superb amenable in helping us cater our menu to captire all food allergies and preferences, all at a reasonable price. They took care of everything and were professional throughout. Everything was delicious, but we especially loved the appetizers (brsuchetta and jumbo shrimp) and the poached pear dessert. You will not go wrong with Chef Tom!

Chef Tom and the team were fantastic at our holiday office party. Very professional and personable on site, our group enjoyed having them at the event, they kept a low profile but it felt like they were part of our team. The food was on time, great tasting and presented at a high level - highly recommended!

Chef Tom was the best. He gave us a great dinner for 8 at our Air BnB in Sanoma. Chef and his staff worked in the background and were very flexible with our needs on the night of the event. Delicious food and great presentation. Would highly recommend his services for all looking for a great night and great food.

Chef Tom and Cristina prepared dinner for our group of 12 on the last night of my best friend’s bachelorette party. He suggested a very thoughtful menu well in advance that was accommodative to our group’s dietary restrictions and within our desired price point! Before the event, Tom was highly responsive to all questions and follow ups. On the day of, he arrived on time and delivered every course exactly as promised. He was easily able to navigate around the kitchen and find everything he needed with no direction. Cristina took time away from helping to prep to take a few photos of our group, which we really appreciated. Overall, the food was delicious and Tom/Cristina were a delight. Highly recommend Tom for any private catering/event needs!
