HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?
when the world changes, we change with you; services to fit everyone's new normal
As a small event creation company, our main forte is building top of line, custom experiences in our client’s homes! Watch the ingredients come to life in your kitchen, enjoy a 5+ course menu created for you after a personal consultation, savour custom wine pairings with each course, and witness a table design that will make your eyes sparkle by our talented Designer - this is what Chef & Somm's known for!
Life has shifted with this pandemic and we foresee the need for intimate yet distanced gatherings - a happy medium! The Social is an in-person soireé with passed hors d'oeuvres and the occasional, Q&A style wine tasting while guests move about your lightly decorated space by our Designer. Mix and mingle events are on the way; something Chef & Somm excels at!
When COVID-19 arrived, small event companies had to really adapt to the "new normal." We had a responsibility to ourselves and the small businesses we support with our business to come up with creative ways of doing what we do. So when it comes to keeping social while still staying safe, Chef & Somm is here for you as well with entertaining, Q&A-based, delicious seminars!

CHEF & SOMM
Food. Wine. Design
An In-Home Dining Experience Company
OUR CLIENTS KNOW WE ARE DIFFERENT FROM WHAT'S OUT THERE
this is why we are leaders within the toronto private chef, sommelier & event design industries
We are three real human beings with artistic talent & vivacious personalities.
We are NOT a Recruiting Service: We offer our own skilled & unique personalized services.
2. Private Dining Experiences in your Home > 6 Years Later
Our company is not a reaction to COVID-19 life & regulations: In-Home Dining Experiences has been our business model for 6 years and it shows.
When having your walls re-painted, do you hire a Portrait Painter or Home Painter? When hosting an event at home, do you hire In-Home Event Specialists or a Chef who works in a restaurant?
3. The 'Perfect Night' is our Bottom Line
At the end of the night if you say “this was so much more than anything I expected” then we are satisfied.
We seek to wow you in the obvious & not-so-obvious ways. Details really do matter in the end.
4. We bring everything we need - Your kitchen can be completely empty!
If you thought about details or cleaned at any point during your event, did you really hire someone? We make you a guest in your own home so you can enjoy the event.
Other companies create menus based on the tools you already have in your kitchen. We dream big & create menus that cause fireworks - that's why we bring everything we need to ensure a smooth, refined and flawless night, every time.
5. Good Food vs. an Artistic Dining Experience
Tasty food is only the first step in an Artistic Dining Experience - so what about the other 100+ steps?
Other companies aim to be a food solution while we aim to be an entire Artistic Dining Experience.
Each step before the other was planned strategically by three talented humans in their fields.
When taking a cab, do you rave to friends that they got you from point A to B? Or do we rave about the quality of the car, the conversation, the timeliness, the route and the overall experience? The cab should get you there - it's what they do. But HOW they get you there is what makes it an experience.
