Let's Eat Home!
Personal Chef Service
"I like to shop on the Champs-Elysees - eat curry in old Bombay - spend New Years Eve in either Tel Aviv or Rome...but if it's all the same to you...Let's Eat Home!"
* 1989 - Words and Music by Dave Frishberg
As the owner and Personal Chef of Let's Eat Home! my approach is to treat my patrons like family. When cooking for loved ones, I can't help but go beyond culinary technique and prepare meals from the heart. I can only hope the fare that I leave for my clients will not only appeal to the palate, but to our collective memory of what good food awakens in us; memories of home, hearth, loving parents and grandparents - the joy of being taken care of.
As a Let's Eat Home! patron, you will experience dishes that are inspired and influenced by the generosity and hospitality of Mediterranean Cooking and culture, and the gourmet approach of European Cuisine.
I also enjoy the farm-fresh emphasis of California Cooking; food that reflects the freshest ingredients cooked simply and beautifully; lighter sauces that enhance rather than conceal; and, most important, a free-wheeling spirit of adventure in the kitchen.
Also reflecting our farm-fresh approach, during the summer months we grow our own herbs and vegetables...picked fresh daily from our garden.
Finally, a reservoir of menus is incomplete without the food from the past we love the most - Comfort Food. All combine into a culinary imagination which produces meals that are always interesting, delicious and pleasing to both the eye and palate.
Growing up in New York, I was constantly exposed to the culinary melting pot that makes up that great city. Each borough, a microcosm of countries left behind in search of a better life: Greece, Italy, Eastern Europe, The Middle East, Latin America... the list goes on.
I subscribe to the "Like Water for Chocolate" school of thought; food is a story worth telling. My dishes reflect memories of the nurturing love, passion and devotion to food that I grew up with; these have been passed down from my grandmother, to my mother, to me...and now to you.
If you would like to begin service or have any questions, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
