"Tomatoes and oregano make it Italian; wine and tarragon make it French. Sour cream makes it Russian; lemon and cinnamon make it Greek. Soy sauce makes it Chinese; garlic makes it good."
- Alice May Brock
"Last night we felt like we were having dinner in Italy! The cannelloni was absolutely delicious. Your creativity and attention to detail came through loud and clear. You have definitely taken the best of your culinary schooling and translated it into mouthwatering goodness. It is an added bonus that you choose to use local, organically grown ingredients whenever possible. We're looking forward to more creations from A Posto!"
– Mike and Sandy, Newport
"Hey Pati-Delizioso! We loved everything and delighted in knowing we had an amazing meal just waiting for us to enjoy each night. I enjoyed your company in my kitchen. Brought back some fond memories of my Gramma, especially once I tasted the sauce & braciole! Thanks again."
– Denise, Newport

What Does A Posto Mean?
‘A Posto’ is an Italian expression that means ‘everything is in place’. The name was chosen for the business because it symbolizes what we want our clients to experience with our service: to enjoy a delicious healthy meal made with fresh, seasonal ingredients without the worry of meal planning, shopping, cooking, or cleaning up afterwards—a posto!
Why Use an Onsite Personal Chef?
A Personal Chef can help give you back time: the average household spends 13-15 hours a week planning meals, shopping, cooking, and cleaning up afterwards.
A Personal Chef will only purchase the groceries needed for the delicious meals to be prepared thus eliminating impulse buying and saving you money.
A Personal Chef will help reduce food waste. The average household throws away 15% of food purchased each month due to age or spoilage.
A Personal Chef customizes the menus based on your needs such as: portion control, low salt, low fat, low sugar, low carbs, vegetarian, low cholesterol, or just the desire to eat more whole foods like fresh fruits and vegetables. A Personal Chef can also consult with a physician for special dietary requirements that coincide with any medical treatment.
A Personal Chef can help you become better in your own kitchen. You may be interested in learning how to prepare that favorite ethnic dish, or fresh pasta, or a specific cooking technique. Perhaps you would like to optimize your pantry or kitchen, or learn to shop more effectively? You can choose to do this in a one-on-one or group setting; your friends might want to learn too!
When deciding if you can afford the expense of a Personal Chef, it helps to look at your monthly food budget to see how the cost of a chef compares to your typical spending. Be sure to take into account take-out food, pizza, and other sit-down restaurant meals as well. You will find when you add it all together that hiring an expert to come into your home costs the same or less than you are currently spending. And remember all the benefits that come with our onsite personal chef and catering services: customized menus, meal planning, shopping, preparation, cooking, packaging, and cleaning up. You control what you eat when you engage a Personal Chef!
