Romantic Dinner for 2

Let me take care of everything from the moment your evening starts.  During the consultation, we will have decided the menu and the courses.  We will also talk about wine, beer or cocktails to pair with your dinner.

On the day of your dinner, I will do all the shopping, and prep the evening meal.  I will then come to your kitchen, set up the kitchen, and get to work cooking.  The beginning of your evening starts the moment the both of you are ready.  I will pour the first glass of wine or mix the cocktails.  The table will be set complete with candles and I can even bring the music. 

I will serve each course, clear the plates and clean the kitchen - I don't leave until the kitchen is cleaned up and the dishwasher is humming.

Dinner ..........  $ 250  (up to four courses including an amuse bouche)  with a bottle of wine............  $ 295
Dinner with a wine flight..............  $ 295 + groceries      (cost will be higher depending on your wine selections)

Your evening will be sure to impress even the toughest guests - I promise! 

On the day of your dinner, I will do all the shopping, and prep the evening meal.  I will then come to your kitchen, set up the kitchen, and get to work cooking.  A server will set the table and the bar and greet your guests with a glass of wine or request a cocktail order.  Depending on your choices, a server can pass hors d'oeveres, as well.  Dinner will be called and I will plate the courses and your server will serve and clear.  Wine will be poured throughout the evening and water glasses will be kept full.

Dinner will be completely cleared and we don't leave until you hear the gentle hum of the dishwasher.
