Private Chef Services

Private Wine Dinners

If you’re staying at an AirB&B or a VRBO and planning on doing some wine tasting with your group, I can cook for you!

You get to stay in. Slow down. Enjoy the amenities of your vacation rental property. No need to drive anywhere.

Skip the restaurant scene and bring in Chef Willie as your private chef.

I do all the work. You host the party. I’ll bring my “Michelin-starred worthy experience” into your home for a unique and memorable wine country dinner party that you and your guests will be talking about for the rest of the year.

If you’ve never had a private chef before, it’s a culinary luxury worth splurging on. It is a major step up in your hospitality game. I can make it fancy yet casual, dressed up or dressed down. Buffet style, family style or formal fine-dining, either way it’s a super cool way t0 go when you’re visiting Sonoma or Napa.

Cooking Demonstration Classes

starting at $125/person

If cooking is your passion and you love to share it with others, here is where you can get your hands-on pro chef tips and learn to be super organized so you can work more efficiently in your own kitchen, and learn to serve your dinner party guests on time.

Groups of 4-5 couples are ideal; 8-10 people max. for an instructive, interactive cooking demonstration, with recipes and tricks of the trade included.

It will be super fun, but it’s real work! Cooking multiple courses simultaneously in an unfamiliar kitchen can be complicated - that’s why chefs like me have a mis en place. “Everything in its proper place “ is a good place to start,

and a good motto:

Chef Willie says “Everything in its proper place.”
