"Anne & I want to thank you for a job well done and exceeding our expectations. First and foremost the menu you planned for our dinner party was outstanding. For us, it's about the seafood on the Oregon Coast and the seafood cannelloni with seafood sauce that you prepared was sublime--our friends are still talking about it. Our interest was piqued when you named your business 'A Posto' meaning 'everything is in place'. True to the name, we did not have a worry all evening as you and Bruce took care of every detail from the timing of the courses and dinner service to the stealth clean-up. Thanks again for a wonderful evening and we do look forward to using your services for our next occasion."
– Anne & Mike, Otter Rock
"Hi Pati & Bruce- I just wanted to tell you how much we loved the dinner you prepared. It was perfect for my parents' 50th anniversary. It was so nice to be able to enjoy the dinner all together. We could really relax and enjoy each other's company without worring aboout cooking, serving, and cleaning up. You were so accommodating with all our food requests and individualizing the meals for our varied tastes and allergies. Your assitance with menu choices was greatly appreciated. I loved the crab cakes. There are many variations for crab cakes, but I liked your traditional presentation with a choice of 2 sauces to accent them. Yum! The shrimp scampi with fettucine was wonderful. The shrimp were prepared perfectly and the flavors were wonderful. It was so nice of you to specially prepare a chicken scampi for my sister who does not like shrimp. Her's was great too (I stole a taste or two!!). The creme brulee was soooo decadent and delicious. I should have ordered 2 for everyone. On top of that, you and Bruce are so pleasant and professional; we felt like kings and queens. You played a large part in making my parents' anniversary wonderful! Appreciatively,"

"Thanks so much for the outstanding meal for my birthday! I'm sorry this is late getting to you, but you've certainly been on my mind. I went out to lunch the other day at an Italian restaurant and ordered the pasta ala ragu. It was good, but needless to say, nowhere near as good as yours was. I think I'll be searching for a re-creation of your ragu for a while to come. Please pass on my gratitude to Bruce, as well. He was fabulous with the kids and the pizzas are still being talked about among the adults. I hope to work with you again sometime in the future. Sincerely,"

A Posto Personal Chef Services LLC offers customized chef services for small dinner parties designed for people looking to entertain family, friends or business clients in the comfort of their own home or vacation rental.
Our Dinner Party Service includes a client assessment to create a custom menu plan for you based on your budget, taste preferences, and dietary requests.
For those staying in a vacation rental we can use our knowledge of local food sources to create fabulous meals for you thus removing the hassle of locating all the ingredients by yourself.
We also provide preparation service by handling all the tasks of grocery shopping, preparing the meals, and storing the food; all you do is serve it to your guests. Of course if you want to focus your time on entertaining instead, we are happy to serve the food buffet-style or tableside, and we always handle the kitchen clean-up for you as well!
For weddings, you can use our private in-home catering resources to organize a small dinner party before the ceremony such as a rehearsal dinner, or afterwards as a way to say ‘Thanks’ to your wedding party. A Dinner Party Gift Certificate can be given to the newlyweds for a unique and thoughtful gift.
Small Dinner Parties: We work closely with you to create the dining experience you are looking for. All menu and meal planning, shopping, preparing, cooking, and cleaning up activities are performed by us. You can choose to serve the food yourself or hire us to do it. If you hire us, you get to spend more time entertaining your guests while we do all the dirty work! We can also do ‘themed’ dinner parties if you are interested. For example, we can make you and your friends authentic personal pizzas Napolitan style, we can make a variety of fresh pastas to try with different sauces, or we can help you and your friends prepare that bounty of Dungeness crab or salmon you caught earlier in the day.
