WELCOME TO CHEF & SOMM
we're a three-person team who create luxurious dining experiences
As a small event creation company, our main forte is building top of the 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!
Who would have known a few years ago that Virtual Wine Tasting Seminars would take the world by storm? Sommelier Rebecca Meir is the basis of all our Zoom-based seminars - a working professional in the Toronto wine industry for over 10 years as well as an avid traveller to worldwide wineries. So if educational, Q&A-based, delicious seminars are your thing, then Chef & Somm can help!
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, as 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! And it'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 field.
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.

Eyal is a Private Chef who believes in rocking the boat when it comes to the Toronto food industry: To be an artist is to be a responsible human, and to be a responsible human is to be a critical human, which in this case involves sourcing ethically raised produce & establishing connections with and supporting other artists . . .
