More detailed description >


There is something to be said for being served exquisite cuisine at a candle-lit table sitting across from the one you love. With this experience you can do just that, without leaving the comforts of your own home!

Chef Mark Tafoya will come to your home and make this an evening you and your loved one will never forget. After Chef Mark arrives he'll prepare a customized 4 course dinner for the two of you. He'll even recommend wines to accompany your foods, and after preparing your meal he'll clean up so the two of you can relax and enjoy each others company.

Whether it's for a surprise marriage proposal, anniversary, or just because you love each other, Chef Mark will work with you to create a unique and memorable experience.

Choose menu selections from a variety of culinary styles from around the world including French, Italian, Spanish, Southwestern, Thai, Vietnamese, Persian, Japanese, Greek, Moroccan and many more. Chef Mark will consult with you to customize the menu to your liking, and can accommodate virtually any tastes you have.

You might think that your kitchen is too small for such a service. No need to worry! Chef Mark is a NYC personal chef and can work around any sized kitchen as long as it has a functioning stove and oven.

So get ready for a romantic evening that you and your loved one will never forget. Because the saying really is true, there is no place like home!
