What Goes With What custom catering will satisfy all of your food and wine desires. I offer you custom chef services for your backyard barbecue, a graduation, rehearsal dinner, a simple brown bag wine tasting or an event for 250 people as you celebrate, entertain, or simply enjoy good, fresh food and the wines that compliment the meal.
Considering that I eat and drink with my head and my heart (some may refer to that as a gourmand, a glutton with brains) and enjoy passing along what I have discovered and what I think you will enjoy. I offer you my experience and knowledge as a chef and wine consultant combining two of my life’s great interests. It is my hope to provide clients with food and drink that will not only meet but exceed their expectations.
Providing you with truly custom catering means there is no set menu and offers you the ability to go in most any direction as my cooking style is fairly straightforward and gets you to the bottom line of tasting good real fast. I do my best to use the freshest and best food possible acquired from local providers, wholesalers, bakers, cheese purveyors and pastry shops.
And what can you expect to pay for all of this wonderfulness? My business model is quite simple. I bill you for any products or services purchased for the creation of your meal or event at what those items cost me, the best prices I can get. I bill you for my time; acquisition of food/wine and service products, the time to cook, and the time to deliver or present, very reasonable.
My only question is…what do you want to eat and drink?

All of my vendors are located in Santa Rosa and I use as many locally owned ones as I can. Being new to the market I’m still learning who has what products at the best prices and that the cost of food at retail and wholesale is quite different from Chicago, for example I recently purchased ground beef and bacon from a meat wholesaler and they were both the same price per pound, really – not what I’m used to.
My point is that whatever products I purchase to produce your menu will be the best I can get and at the best price I can get them at, which means a bit more time and trouble for me but it serves you well in the long run.
I use recyclable, plastic service wear, cups, glass, bamboo picks and paper products made from recyclable materials or that are recyclable. All bottles and cans and as much paper as possible used for food prep is also recycled.
