How it works

The process begins by meeting with Chef Marc in your home or event location to determine the kitchen setup, appliances, utensils, and plating options. Dinner & glassware can be provided if needed.

Chef Marc will do all the shopping for the dinner, making purchases of prime ingredients from local suppliers. 

On the day of the dinner, most of the prep and cooking will be completed in your kitchen.

It is suggested that for every 12 guests, there be one waiter to coordinate which can be arranged for a fee.
