Because we typically do smaller intimate gatherings, billing is based on a Chef's Hourly rate for shop, prep and service time plus the cost of food. It will ultimately depend a lot on service style, allergies, and menu choices- instead of just the group size.
The two main fish sources come from Pier 45 in SF, and Toyosu Fish Auctions in Japan. It gets shipped overnight but we sometimes have to make a long drive to ensure we are serving the highest quality fish! We take pride in getting products and quality that the sushi restaurants in this area don't offer.
Chef Josh and Chef Brian collectively have over 35 years of sushi experience learning from traditional chefs, and have applied that to what they know about the "western palate". Josh spent time in Japan in 2017 and 2023 learning about the cuisine and culture. The Chefs take pride in transforming your menu input into a dinner you'll never forget.

Yes we do small intimate dinners! But it takes a similar amount of labor as a larger group would.
Tahoe Private Chef is 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! We occasionally travel as far as SLT, Grass Valley, Reno, or Carson City, although winter bookings are not as likely.
We will arrive 2.5 hours before service begins and always leave kitchens more clean than we found them.
