The food was delicious and plentiful! Julia was easy to work with abs accommodating. It was such a pleasure not to have to deal with a “corporate machine” but a real person who provides an intimate working relationship. Exactly what we were looking for. I would not hesitate to hire her again for another event and I highly, highly, highly recommend Bertocci’s Inferno! Thank you Julia and team!

My husband and I had a dinner party for eight. We knew Thanksgiving is right around the corner and did not want to cook, serve and clean up afterwards. This is where Julia came in the save the day. We had a four-course dinner and EVERYTHING was delicious! Our guests are still talking about. The food, portion sizes and service was well worth the money! We highly recommend her and would definitely use her again!

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

    Hi, I’m Julia Bertocci. I love to cook. There’s no greater pleasure than making food for the ones we love. This has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I come from a long line of amazing Italian cooks who cared about fresh ingredients, taste and healthy eating. I remember sitting in my mother’s kitchen and watching everything she did. There were no recipes—ingredients were added until it was “just right”. I love teaching. It began when friends would call for tips and advice. I started teaching officially about ten years ago in conjunction with my personal chef services. I very much believe in the “teach a person how to fish” philosophy.
