I use only the finest local, seasonal, organic products to insure the absolute best flavors. I do my best to achieve flavor profiles by applying simple techniques, and not masking the essence of the earths finest ingredients. Achieving clarity of flavor is of the utmost importance. My main focus is upon the highest level of guest satisfaction, while allowing the food to be the star of the show.

These are sample menus. All Menus are designed with a personalized flair. I consult with all clients before each party to ensure that all culinary preferences and dietary restrictions are met.
