Chef Toni's Specialties


Birthday celebration!

We loved every single thing about Toni’s dinner preparation for our birthday dinner party. Toni was professional in communication and planning and thoughtful in dealing with the unknowns of an AirBnB. Arrival was perfectly on time, she brought every detail necessary, set a beautiful table, prepared an excellent dinner with small details that every attendee loved, interacted on an appropriate level, and cleaned up beautifully! We will definitely be using this service again and would HIGHLY recommend this as a unique and wonderful option.

My wife and I wanted to have a very special dinner for us and our immediate families the evening after our wedding. Toni was delightful to work with during the planning phase, accommodating my family members’ dietary restrictions and our preferences for each dish, and she put together an absolutely delicious menu for us. Unfortunately a wrench was thrown into our plans when we found that the oven was not working just a few hours before Toni arrived, but she was able to adapt the menu to be prepared entirely stovetop. Very impressive! Every dish was cooked to perfection, plated impeccably, and presented to us in a professional way. The roasted beet salad with honeycomb and the herb-crusted salmon with couscous were particular standouts. There was more than enough food for everyone – no one left the table hungry. Toni and her assistant were a delight to interact with during and after the meal. They even left the kitchen cleaner than they found it.

I would recommend Toni’s services to anyone in need of a private chef. I hope that we can find an occasion special enough to merit her services again.

Hands down 5 Star experience! Toni loves her work, which is evidenced by her confidence, experience, and outstanding food! Toni knew how to keep the party running smoothly without help from me. Her friendly and calm demeanor were extra bonuses.
I have worked with many caterers in the past Don’t dig through the morass of chefs out there…. Work with Toni!

2. How is your service priced?

You pay a fixed price per guest based on your menu, plus a small, all-inclusive booking fee to our platform. You’ll be able to see exactly what you’re paying when you make a booking. No hidden costs, ever.

3. How many guests can I invite?

As many as you like! Although for events with over 30 people, we ask that you reach out to us to make an event inquiry.

4. My group has multiple dietary restrictions

That’s absolutely fine! When finalizing your menu, please mention these under ‘Special Instructions.’ For instance, you can specify that you’d like to accommodate one vegan guest and one gluten-free guest for your at-home catering and your private chef will prepare suitable dish variants for those guests.

  • One week or more before your event we guarantee your refund.
  • During the week of your event we offer a 50% refund.
