"Life is so brief that we should not glance either too far backwards or forwards…therefore study how to fix our happiness in our glass and in our plate!"
– Grimod de la Reyniere
"There is absolutely no substitute for the best. Good food cannot be made of inferior ingredients masked with high flavor. It is true thrift to use the best ingredients available and to waste nothing."
– James Beard

Chef Patricia (Pati) D’Eliseo is the Executive Chef of the company and oversees the general operation of the business. Pati is broadly versed on international cuisines, ethnic and spicy foods, and loves creating and preparing menu items that are delicious and healthy. While her food knowledge and skills cover a wide variety of ethic and American cuisines, she specializes in Italian food, and our fresh, locally caught seafood and shellfish. She also enjoys sharing her culinary experiences and seasonal recipes working as a chef instructor.
Pati is the creative force behind our company blog site known as La Cucina Stagionale. This blog provides educational and entertaining information on a variety of food-related topics. You can also find us on Facebook and Pinterest
Chef Bruce Birt is the Sous Chef of the company and works closely with Pati on all client assignments. He shares the same passion for food and wine. Bruce’s specialties include artisanal salads and fine homemade pizzas.
Our company operations are based in Newport, but due to the mobile nature of our personal chef business, we spend most of our time working in our client’s kitchen. Therefore, we have developed flexible ways for our clientele to communicate with us based on their personal preference, whether it’s through a phone call or via E-Mail.
