Because I typically do smaller intimate gatherings, I choose to bill based on my hourly rate plus the cost of food. It will ultimately depend a lot on service style and menu choices- instead of just the group size.
My two main fish sources come from Pier 45 in SF, and Toyosu Fish Auctions in Japan. I get it shipped overnight but sometimes have to make a long drive to ensure I am serving the highest quality fish!
I have 15 years of sushi experience learning from traditional chefs, and have applied that to what I know about the "western palate". I also spent time in Japan learning about their cuisine. I take pride in transforming your menu input into a dinner you'll never forget.
Keep an eye out on my social media @tahoeprivatechef - I will do a pop-up occasionally around the Tahoe / Truckee area!
Yes! I have done small intimate dinners in the past. But it does take me a similar amount of labor as a larger group would.
I am based out of Truckee and mainly operate locally and around Squaw, Alpine Meadows, Tahoe City, Carnelian Bay, Incline Village, Northstar, Martis Camp, and everywhere in between! I do occasionally travel as far as SLT, Grass Valley, Reno, or Carson City!
I will arrive 2.5 hours before service begins and always leave kitchens more clean than I found them.
Contact me thru the link below and I will get an idea of your tastes and service style. Once I am able to provide an accurate estimate, you will have the opportunity to pay the $300 deposit.
