Personal Chef & Catering

Rates based on menu and number of guests

I specialize in creating delicious dinner parties and meals for you and your family and/or guests. From intimate dinners for two, to larger parties for twelve, I work with you to create a unique experience that meets your exact needs. Food can be prepared on location or brought to your home or venue ready to serve.  With my training in wines and time spent working in the industry, I am happy to provide guidance on appropriate pairings that match your palette. I also cater small to mid-sized events.  Gift certificates for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, or holidays can be fun.  Check out my sample menus and contact me to discuss your ideas and get a price quote.


Paella Parties

Rates based on menu and number of guests

Backyard paella parties are a long-time tradition in my family. Having purchased a mobile paella burner that can be transported easily to your home, vacation rental, or party venue, I am excited to offer this fun and delicious entertainment option to my clients. I have several available recipes to fit your tastes and preferences, including seafood, meat, and vegetarian options.  I can also offer a range of tapas to go along with the paella to make your party or family meal complete. With the beautiful climate here in Tucson for much of the year, let me help you take your backyard gathering to a new level!

Sunday Suppers

Fixed Price three-course Meals

One of my passions is "Sunday Supper” – a concept that involves creating an intimate, relaxed gathering around a beautiful three-course meal on a Sunday afternoon.  They happen at a comfortable mid-town location and have turned into wonderful community events for first time and repeat Supperers.  I have developed a set of tasty menus with roots around the globe and around the country.  You sign up for a themed event and a menu is sent out ahead of time to provide details.  I am happy to recommend appropriate wine pairings if guests are interested.  I seat between 8 and 10 guests for each Supper, and they fill up quickly, so contact me if you are interested in being added to my list.  Some of my recent Suppers have included an Indian Feast, Spanish Fiesta, Classic Southern Supper, French Bistro, and Thai Feast.  I hope you will join us soon!


Cooking Classes (Private or Group)

Rates depend on number of participants

I provide cooking classes that include several classic preparations, world-cuisines dishes, and personal favorites.  We work together to make a meal that is enjoyed together at the end of the event - usually over a glass of wine.  Some special foods can be intimidating to prepare but are not as challenging as they may seem - fresh pasta, risotto, gnocchi, and paella on the grill are some of my favorites.  I typically provide classes in your kitchen, but small classes (2-3) can be hosted in mine. Let me help you have fun learning how to make fresh new foods for your family and friends.

"Thank you so very much for a beautiful night. The food was just delicious. We could have eaten the pasta and short ribs for a week and still wanted more - and the dessert was just beyond!  Wonderful evening that fed heart and soul. The love you put into your work is evident in the flavor of your creations."



"Thank you once again for hosting us, and for a fabulous meal, Ezra.  We had a scrumptious and delightful time, and met new friends.  Good food and good vibes do this to one."
