Servicing Hartford, New Haven, Litchfield & Fairfield Counties + Westchester County


To have a great party you need 3 essential ingredients:

  • Friends
  • Spirits
  • Scrumptious food

In the last 20 years, I’ve created lovingly prepared food for hundreds of parties – from casual backyard buffets to multi-course sit-down dinners. You don’t get a catering company… you get me, your own personal chef for your party.

Here’s how it works

  • Email me a brief description of the occasion, number of guests, date and time of your party and your contact info, along with good times to reach you.
  • We will have an initial consultation. I’ll send a menu and/or proposal. You decide if it’s right for you. It’s that simple.
  • I specialize in Mediterranean cuisine, but also do New American, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free

The Cost

I work a little differently than other caterers. That’s because I’m a chef that does catering – not a catering company with a list of pre-determined options. You pay for my time. The groceries are billed at cost.
Off-site Prep: 75/hour
On-site Chef Services: 125/hour
Servers, bartenders: 30/hour
Once you choose your menu, I’ll give you an estimate and we’ll proceed from there.

Minimum for a private dinner party: $600

“Silvia, you are an amazing chef. The food last night couldn’t have been any better. The servers were great – so calm amongst all the chaos – and Rebecca was very helpful to my guests. By the way, all the “kids” thought Mathew was a great bartender. They loved their dirty martinis!”

–Rosemary & Rich

“You’re amazing! What an incredible treat your meal was last night, SO delicious…. people keep talking about what you prepared (and how you prepared it!) I can’t thank you enough for making the evening truly Special.”

Sit-down Dinner Parties

I’ll bring my restaurant experience to your home. Made to order meals for you and your dinner guests. We’ll plan an exciting menu – anywhere between 3 – 5 courses or a 6 – 8 course tasting menu. We can pair them with wines or keep it more casual. Each dinner party is custom designed for you.
Cost: See catering costs above.
