Fine Dining at Home
Experience ranges from 2 to 4 hours and can be tailored to meet your needs and group size.
A Culinary Experience at HomeMichelin stars, a curated wine list, an attentive staff — these things matter. But often, the most memorable dining experiences don't occur at a restaurant. The things that stand out, the spontaneous moments, intimate conversations, and authentic connections, happen around your own table.
From shopping and cooking to setup and cleanup, your private chef, Kristen will orchestrate a special dinner, reflecting local and organic ingredients and seasonality. Kristen will take care of everything, so you can entertain effortlessly. Depending on your style, Kristen can provide a casual family-style meal or a more formal plated service.
All that’s left for you to do is sit back and enjoy the conversation as a five-star experience is brought to you. Who says you need to go out to have a good time? This fun night in experience makes the perfect get together with friends or family. It's time to bring your favorite people together for a night of fun, food, and flavor.
Simply relax while Kristen puts a delicious three to five course meal together for your group or hang out with Kristen in the kitchen while she shares simple tips for cooking healthier and better. Either way, it's sure to be quite the experience.

"Kristen! I must tell you that after you left our home, all of us sat around the table and discussed how incredible you were. Feeling a bit guilty that you did all the work, the conversation evolved around how each of us could buy, prepare and eat food that benefits our well being. But it was at a level where you were our new friend, a sister, a daughter. Remarkable. The timing was perfect, and I need to tell you personally how grateful I am to you. My wife, Nancy as you know just finished her radiation treatment and was physically and emotionally drained. The other gals present at this dinner took the cancer journey with her as well. It was the first time in four months that I saw my bride genuinely happy and excited. You touched our hearts, especially mine. If you were here I would give you a big hug!On a different note, your cookbook is a huge success. First, Nancy sent your book to our daughter, Katie. Already she has used a few of the recipes and loves them. Flipping back, we have used it and so have the other gals who attended the dinner. Where most cookbooks simply gather dust, yours is being used extensively. We leave it on our table in the family room and when people come over they too look through it. In a couple of weeks the same group is coming over, and each is responsible for preparing a recipe from the cookbook.I won't babble on, but thank you again for being you --- you are a difference maker."-David
