Great Full Plate


Invite your guests and let the chef do the rest.


We bring lively, imaginative, engaging culinary experiences to home kitchens across Chicagoland. Services include private chef’s dinners, group cooking classes, and experiential on-site event catering with professional demonstrations.

We believe bellies, glasses, and hearts should always be full.
