Corona Virus Update (June 29, 2020)

We are back and excited to start doing dinner parties again!

In accordance with state regulations concerning Phase 4, we are excited to announce that as of July 5th, we will be starting back up with in-home dinner services for parties of 16 or less.

Need to reschedule those summer plans, those missed birthday parties, anniversary parties, etc, lets have an intimate dinner party

We will also be continuing our meal drop-off services, as well as The Four Courses of Quarantine dinner series and virtual cooking classes. (Find out more about virtual cooking classes below!)

We sure hope everyone has been doing well during quarantine and we simply cannot thank you all enough for your support during this crazy time! We look forward to seeing you all soon!

Stay safe,
Chef Aram and Family

NEW: Electronic Gift Cards

Buy an electronic gift card today that has no expiration date that can be used for future events such as our Premier Private Dining Services, Meal Delivery, Hands-On Cooking classes and much much more. 

Gift Cards are a great choice for celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, new parents, holidays, Mothers Day and Father’s Day, to name just a few. This is a great way to show support for your favorite local Chef Family while we are under a Private Events mandatory lock down.

Virtual Cooking Classes!

Continue to practice social distancing while still enjoying a cooking class over Zoom with your family, friends, and colleagues! 

Since the beginning of quarantine, we have held over 50 Zoom cooking classes with themes including: Fresh Pasta Making, Healthy Cooking, and Dinner in Paris. 

These virtual cooking classes are great for corporate wellness demos, bachelor/ette parties, family reunions, etc.

Able to accommodate up to 50 people at once!

HOW IT WORKS:

1. I create a menu with the designated host, including any and all dietary restrictions.

2. Next, the menu and a full list of ingredients are sent out to all participating parties.

3. Each participant shops for their ingredients.

4. Everyone logs into Zoom at the predetermined date and time, ready to cook!

5. I lead the cooking class step by step and when finished, we eat!

Bon appetit!

Family Meal Delivery

Our Family Meal Delivery Services has now been expanded to 3 times a week. This is the same program we have been running for years.

It’s a great way to get food to your family, or send to friends who may need assistance. Right now, many people are unable to shop for themselves due to over-crowded stores, lack of products, compromised immune systems, or limited mobility due to age or other medical issues.  

We can arrange for meals to be delivered 1-3 times a week, for your family, friends, or even yourself. This ensures everyone you love is eating well and reduces the need to go out to the grocery store during this unsettling time. 

Special accommodations can be made for dietary restrictions. What a great gift for those in your life that need it most. 

Learn below about prices and sample menu. Email Chef Aram Reed for orders or questions. 

Four Courses of Quarantine

As part of our Chefs Table Dining Series, we are now offering our Four Courses of Quarantine To-Go Dining. 

No more cancellations of parties for that special birthday dinner with friends, instead we can deliver your meals to all of your friends, where you can have a four course virtual dinner party.

Imagine, a Chefs Table meal, fully prepared and easily reheat-able in your home, while dining with friends over Zoom. This eclectic service is available for business and personal clients.

  • Menus are customized for each client.
  • We are able to accommodate any and all food allergies.
  • Booking are available 7 days a week, with a 3 day lead time.
  • $60/per person, minimum $300 order.
