What I Do

Perhaps you're a busy professional, a new mom, in town for few days, or trying out a new diet, and what you need is to have someone take the stress of making meals off your hands. That's great! I’ll work with you to find out what kind of food interests you, and then get the freshest food from local markets, bring it to your home or vacation property, and prepare your meals for you. Naturally, I'll also clean up when I'm done! The most you will need to do might be to heat a few items up according to the instructions I will have prepared for you. Tasting Everything is excited to bring personal chef services to everyone in Wine Country and Marin. We use the best and freshest ingredients to prepare healthy and delicious meals from scratch in your home according to your tastes and preferences. Specializing in gluten-free cooking, we are always happy to work within your dietary preferences and needs. A personal chef isn't just for the rich and famous. Anybody who might benefit from having one (or many) meals prepared in their home according to their preferences can benefit from having a personal chef. Whether you want dinner for one, food for a family or party, or a freezer full of ready-to-heat meals, having a personal chef can be the best decision you make. Personal chef services are perfect for brand new moms, busy families, those recovering from medical issues, people who are trying to follow a new diet, and absolutely anyone who simply has too much on their plate to want to deal with preparing meals every day. If you or anybody you know could benefit from having a personal chef, contact Tasting Everything today! anne@tastingeverything.com

Who I Am

Tasting Everything is run by Chef Anne, who brings years of experience in professional kitchens in London, Minneapolis, San Francisco, and throughout Wine Country as well as a wide variety of knowledge and technique to every meal. --- "Born and raised in Minnesota, I started working in a restaurant and a catering company long after finishing college. After several happy years in Minnesota, I visited Italy and England, fell once again completely and totally in love with food, and decided that it was imperative that I live in London again after having studied there as an undergraduate. While living in London, I had the amazing fortuity to work at Franco’s, the oldest Italian restaurant in London still standing and an absolutely gorgeous fine dining establishment. When culinary school was complete, it was time to head to San Francisco where I had the great fortune to spend two years working in a then Michelin-starred restaurant, One Market. After San Francisco, I moved to Wine Country and worked in a number of restaurants, some brand new, some well established, and then had the opportunity to work for Cindy Pawlcyn at Cindy’s Backstreet Kitchen, where I was promoted to Sous Chef. It was an amazing experience. I left Cindy’s for the opportunity to open and run a brand new kitchen myself, for a wonderful and talented Chef/Owner (Jude Wilmoth) in St Helena. It's so exciting to be able to take everything I've learned and experienced over the years and use it to bring great food into people's homes in Wine Country as a personal chef.
