Philosophy

My philosophy for food and entertaining is simple, rooted in my reverence for farmers and my desire to create memorable dining experiences. Delicious fare and authentic, meaningful interaction between guests are the cornerstones of a memorable event, and the focus of my offerings. I source nutritious offerings from the Leelanau County and Grand Traverse region and transform them into mindful and flavorful preparations for you and your loved ones. Styling and presentation is something I truly enjoy; I work with clients to incorporate visual elements and thoughtful hospitality to the guest experience.

Inspired by design, travel, color, and texture, custom chef private menus are seasonally driven shaped by my relationships with producers in the area. Intimate events are my specialty; I focus on events of 20 guests or less. I pride myself on bringing professional and hospitality forward service to each client interaction.

As every experience is unique, I have no set menus. I write a custom menu for each client based on the season and your vision for the occasion. We’ll connect to discuss all facets of your event; everything from food and beverage preferences to timelines, formality, points of service, and even potential worries and concerns.
