Private Chef

9 Reasons to Hire a Private Chef in Tahoe

We are happy to cater large events such as weddings and rehearsal dinners, but we’re just as comfortable creating a small intimate dinner for two. Here are some of the many ways our personal chef services in the Lake Tahoe area can enhance a special occasion -- or make an ordinary meal extraordinary:


#1: Create a Memorable Event with Your Own Private Chef

Are you planning to propose to that special someone, or is there a special celebration on your private calendar? You could order in, but eating semi-warm food from styrofoam boxes leaves less than a memorable impression. Hire a private chef and discover a whole world of culinary excellence served on your china in your elegant surroundings.


I will craft a special menu just for you using fresh local ingredients and creative combinations of flavors. Paired with the perfect wine and candlelight, the answer to your question must be yes.


#2 Hire a Chef to Cater Your Private Party

How do you feed 20 people in your Lake Tahoe vacation rental? Hire a chef for the night or for an entire weekend and ensure that your guests will thoroughly enjoy their visit. I use the best local meats, produce, and dairy to create mouthwatering meals. I’m happy to accommodate your menu requirements and the special dietary needs of your guests.


Ask about easy buffets for lunch and breakfast, but put aside an evening for a memorable dinner that includes recommended pairings of wine and unique dishes.


#3: Rent a Chef and Be a Better Host to Your Guests

How many times have you hosted a party or event and spent the entire night in the kitchen? Free yourself from the work on this special occasion and rent a chef from Abenteuer.


You appreciate fine food, but the amount of effort required to deliver a memorable meal to an entire party is exhausting. Let  me take the worry off your shoulders and experience the best in cuisine paired with recommended wines for a night that you get to enjoy. My menu focuses on the freshest of ingredients blended with caution and presented with care.


At the end of the night, you are able to enjoy the appreciation of your guests without experiencing the exhaustion of serving all evening long.


#4: Explore the Best of Local Culinary Options

Visiting the Lake Tahoe area for the first time and want to experience the best of cuisine from the Nevada or California region? Consider adding a private chef for hire to your vacation adventure. I have the skills and experience to take the very freshest ingredients available from local farms and waters and turn them into unique bites of excitement. I am happy to cook in your kitchen while you watch, and I’ll serve up a stunning selection of finger foods or fabulous feasts.


As a trained sommelier, I can also suggest the perfect pairing of local or international wines to complement your culinary adventure. This will be a vacation to remember!


#5: Pamper Yourself with Your Own At Home Chef

Do you struggle to finish everything at work, pick up the kids, hit the grocery store, and prepare delicious and fresh meals for your family? Deliver a better meal to your dining table when you hire an at home chef.


Whether it is for a single night or as a weekly event,  I will stock your fridge with the freshest ingredients found on the local farms. I will then prepare a healthy and properly portioned dining experience designed to take the stress out of meal time in your home.


You deserve a little pampering. Schedule your own at home chef and rediscover the joy of eating well at your own table.


#6: Turn an Ordinary Family Night Into a Night to Remember

Looking for a unique experience to accent your Lake Tahoe vacation, whether it’s on the Nevada or California side? Hire a freelance chef to provide an exceptional meal prepared in your personal kitchen and served on your deck or in the dining room. I gather the ingredients from local farms, delivering tastes that burst with the Nevada sunshine.


#7: Plan a Dinner Party with a Private Cook

Planning a dinner party is a lot of work in this day and age! Bring back your love for fine food and social dining when you hire a private cook for a unique dining experience right in your own home.


As the available ingredients change with the seasons, bring back your private chef and celebrate holidays, birthdays, and achievements with a different menu at each event. Abenteuer is also available to cater for larger groups, delivering exceptional cuisine to highlight your private affair.


#8: Live Large at the Lakeside: Hire the Best Chef Tahoe has on Tap!

Hosting an exclusive event at your lakeside residence? Amp up the interest when you offer a creative menu prepared by a chef that moves with the times. As a trained sommelier, I can also help you select the wines for the evening that will pair perfectly with the different courses.


#9: Use a Local Chef for Hire to Make Your Media Event or Special Event a Success

Do you have a destination wedding or media event happening in the California / Nevada Lake Tahoe area? How do you feed your guests without settling for the same old chicken or fish? My catering menus offer unique bites, small plates, and full course meals prepared from the best locally sourced ingredients for a dining experience your guests will always remember, paired with wine selections that will perfectly complement each dish of the evening.


I create brilliant collations of expertly prepared small bites, extravagant feasts, or accessible buffets for you, your family, or your catered special event. As an experienced sommelier, I will assist you in selecting the wines that pair perfectly with your menu.
