We love to work with people who believe that sharing food is an important element in life’s celebrations, and we will help you host gorgeous private parties with delicious, organic, and sustainable food.

Starting with a collaborative effort to plan the perfect menu, the strength of our partnership provides support and guidance until the moment our professional team unveils an experience that will have your guests reminiscing long after your event.

The Chef Stephanie team brings your vision to life. Featuring seasonal and contemporary California cuisine, we work with you to create an atmosphere that perfectly captures the essence of your celebration. The practical details that make your event seamless—professional servers, bartenders, and equipment rentals—are part of the package.

We specialize in all types of parties and milestones: birthdays, anniversaries, family reunions, engagements, bachelor/ bachelorette parties, weddings, and baby showers. We even do divorce parties and memorials.

private parties and celebrations

You can fully enjoy your role as host or hostess at your dinner or cocktail party with our personal-chef services. We collaborate with you in selecting appetizers, multiple courses and desserts to design a menu that includes your favorites and supports your guests’ dietary needs and choices. All meals are prepared with local, organic and sustainable ingredients, and we can help with wine pairings from the neighborhood shop or your personal collection. Everything, from prep to clean-up, is taken care of.

“Our guests absolutely loved the food—and the staff are incredible. They were so kind to me and my guests and really added to the fun atmosphere we wanted for our party while remaining completely professional.”

“We were celebrating our 50th Anniversary on Sausalito’s yellow ferry houseboat, and wanted one night set aside for a special family dinner. Chef Stephanie did her magic, making the night as special as we had hoped. From the starters served by her Sous Chef until we all pushed away from the table, all was perfection.”
