Do you send chefs to work for you when you are not available?
As much as I'd love to say yes to every inquiry, my goal is to make your dining experience as unique and memorable as possible. I do this by being your point of contact as well as your personal chef so that you know exactly what you're getting throughout the process. When cooking for larger groups, often there are buttlers and helpers already on site or they can be arranged through the accomodation or agencies.
Where can I purchase wine or alcoholic beverages?
Our major grocery retailers Graceway IGA supply wine and alcoholic beverages. Also, Wine Establishment, The Wine Cellar, Kishco and most convenient stores.
