THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF AN
ARTISTIC DINING EXPERIENCE
"WHAT DO WE DO?"
"Chef & Somm provides in-house event services: food creation, wine pairings & event planning. Our team cohesively designs events for all occasions - what our clients have in common is an appreciation for an evening of elevated dining, atmosphere and, of course, art. As such, our events range from 2-person romantic dinners to corporate gatherings, to family celebrations, to Toronto weddings."
ORDINARY DINING BECOMES A HOLISTIC EXPERIENCE
WHEN FOOD IS USED AS AN ARTISTIC MEDIUM
CHEF & SOMM FOCUSES ON DETAILS THAT GO BEYOND TASTY FOOD.
WE CARE ABOUT HOW A DINING EXPERIENCE MAKES PEOPLE FEEL.
We specialize in creating unique dining experiences for artistically-hungry people.
The level of artistry in our food creation, wine selection, and table settings can be found in our Events Gallery, but we also have a reputation for taking our guests on a socio-political-historical adventure.
"Where did tomatoes come from?
What impact did they have on people's health at first? What adversities did this particular woman overcome to produce this wine?"
Chef & Somm aims to re-awaken the natural connection between body & mind during an outstanding gastronomical experience
THIS IS WHAT WE CALL AN
ARTISTIC DINING EXPERIENCE
Our Toronto Private Chef rocks the boat when it comes to the Toronto food industry because, in order to consider food as art, it must be discussed! And that's what you can expect - a tableside discussion with our Chef about each dish they've created for you filled with mind-bending socio-political-historical anecdotes. When dining becomes social & meaningful, it becomes an experience...
Rebecca is a published writer and wine educator on the mission to reinvent how we taste and view wine. To begin with, let's play with the language of wine - how can we make it more interesting, understandable and approachable for anyone? After all, when we remove all the social standards we're all essentially getting to know fermented grape juice better!
Erica is a strategic designer & artist bundled into one personable human with a knack for making the ordinary, ornate. Refreshing and simple floral arrangements, lighting that dances with eclectic hand-picked decor - these are features of the table settings & event designs that Erica creates on a weekly basis.
IN-HOME DINING EXPERIENCES & MICRO-WEDDINGS
Micro-events have been our thing since day one. Chef & Somm stands out from others for a few reasons, but the most all-encompassing reason is that we put the art first - we still believe in taking the long route where other companies take the detour. The longer route may be more work and less money in our pocket, but your journey is that much more fulfilling because of it. If you're looking for a food solution, there's a lot of other tasty food out there. But if you're looking for an artistic dining experience, you've found the starting point...
Sommelier Rebecca Meir (10+ years in the Toronto wine industry) guides wine tasting seminars that focus on way more than just what we taste. Meir is more focused on the details like who, when, where, why and how! With the potential to then add in the educational sass of our Chef Eyal Liebman, we now have a lively, delicious, discussion-based seminar!
EVENT PLANNER & WEDDING STYLIST

Perhaps you desire a jaw-dropping and memorable table setting for your celebration? Or perhaps Erica should Plant Style your favourite nook at home, an office, or an event (yes!)?
