I was destined to become part of the restaurant industry.  My grandparents owned a German bistro outside of Pittsburgh, and my mother owned a catering company in my home town of Sewickley, Pennsylvania.  Immediately after graduating from college in North Carolina, I moved west to Bend, Oregon. Already having experience working "front of the house", and within the ski industry, I wanted to prove my worth in the kitchen. I worked my way through the brigades of some fine restaurants and was trained by highly skilled mentors.

In 2001, with the Olympics on the horizon, I started working at a high end hotel in Deer Valley. After a couple of years working with a James Beard award-winning chef, I decided to take my profession into the private residences of the Park City area, thus creating At Home Chef Services. Over the past seven years, I have worked as a private chef in Park City, spent a summer as the chef of an elegant fly fishing lodge in Montana, worked three summers as a personal chef for a clothing executive in the Hamptons, New York, and couple of quick visits to southern France.

As a personal chef, I do everything from the first email or phone call to the follow-up email. For groups of eight or more, I work with professionals who have the a great deal of experience in the food and beverage industry.  I personally plan and coordinate everything, and promise to be your private chef from the very beginning to end of your dining experience.

I have compiled a number of menus that I feel you will enjoy from meal drop-offs to more elegant, sit down, plated tasting dinners, and everything in between. If you have favorites, please let me know, and as always I will do my best to customize your menu to your and your guests’ tastes. If you would like for me to pair some wines with the meal I would be more than happy to do that also. Let me know how we can make this experience perfect for you, and I will do my best to make achieve that goal. The menus provided are based on evening meals; breakfast and lunch options are customized to your tastes and budget.

Feel free to contact me any time with your personal inquiries.


Cheers!
