Hire a Private Chef to prepare a special meal for you in your vacation home for a truly unique and exclusive way to enjoy Wine Country. We work regularly in many local AirBnbs, VRBOs, and exquisite estates and villas, and the owners of these homes trust us to create a remarkable meal for their guests. We offer formal, multi-course dining options as well as more casual buffet- or family-style formats. Here are some sample 3-Course and 4-Course dinners along with their pricing for the upcoming season. We are happy to accommodate any dietary restrictions and most requests.
