Please do not hesitate to call or e-mail us to arrange a FREE consultation or discuss your desires for your next catered event. All consults include a discussion on preferences and dietary restrictions.

We support Local Markets and Provisioners and try to work with local foods in season whenever possible.

  • Dinner Parties

    You Invite the Guests and We'll Handle the Rest.

    Fast becoming the best way to get the best of both worlds! At home dining combines the elegance of open kitchen preparation by a trained chef within the comfort of your own home. Dinners can be regionally themed with ethnic food or an eclectic blend providing a luxurious alternative to dining out.

    Dinner parties don't need to be expensive ordeals. Relax and enjoy your company while we shop, prepare, serve and clean up!

    Some reasons to have us do dinner:

    • Family Gatherings

    • Get Together with Friends (go Dutch!)

    • Entertaining Clients

  • Delivered Meals

    The Restaurant Experience in the Comfort of Your Own Home.    
    It's what everyone would like every once in a while. We offer both At-Home Dining, which includes all shopping, preparation and clean up, and Home Meal Delivery, which is the entire meal delivered to your desired location, either precooked or prepared.

    Weekly, bi-weekly and monthly meal plans
    Together, you and the chef create menus during a free consultation visit.  Meals are prepared in your home or prepared in a licensed kitchen and delivered. The price and menu are personalized for each individual based on health restrictions, dietary needs and personal preference. Weekly meal plans start at a minimum of three meals per person.

  • Family Gatherings, like Weddings

    So many people, so little time to cook, clean and spend time with family. Don't run around making little sandwiches and suffer through Aunt Mable's dry deviled eggs.


    Food enhances every celebration. 

    Relax and enjoy everything that surrounds a big celebration. It's worth every penny when you experience that sigh of relief.

    • Showers

  • Wine Dinners

    Brilliantly crafted wine dinners are another reason to select Dining by Design. We feature and array of regional wine dinners and multiple course dinner parties to suit your entertaining needs. An Australian, Spanish or French wine dinner or even a gathering for carefully rolled sushi and a cold raw bar.

    Perfectly Paired Wine Dinners

    • Wine and Cheese with Private Dinner Service 

    • 4 paired courses: Hors d'Oeuvres, Salad, Entree and Dessert

    • Carefully chosen dinner menu, wines and cheeses for you and your guests.

  • Local and Seasonal

    Getting to know your farmer, cheese purveyor, fishmonger, butcher, workers at your local co-op, etc., creates a sense of community.

    Local foods create a greater variety of foods. Farmers who run CSA (community-supported agriculture) programs, sell at farmers markets, and provide food to local restaurants have the demand and the economic support for raising more types of produce and livestock.

    Money spent locally stays local. Purchasing locally builds your local economy instead of handing over the earnings to a corporation in another city, state, or country. Also, since the food itself moves through less hands, more of the money you spend will end up in the pockets of those raising and growing those foods.

  • Design Your Next Cooking Class 

    Just imagine - private cooking classes at your home in an individual or group setting.

    Learn what you have always wanted to learn about cooking.  For instance: a particular method, procedure, special technique or simply to learn about a regional cuisine.

    These classes can be formatted to be one-day classes or structured over multiple days.

    Classes will include demonstrations and tastings.

    Menus will be decided at our consultation meeting and classes will be limited to eight people. The cost is based upon materials and time necessary for the class of your choice.

    Take your next team meeting or entertainment of clients up a notch with a catered lunch or private business dinner. Fully prepared, served and tidied up afterwards.
