Chef Marcie with Chef Martin Yan of Yan Can Cook

Are you looking for a personal/private Chef?

Do you want to relax and enjoy your next dinner party instead of being stuck in the kitchen, cooking and cleaning? Enjoy gourmet cuisine in the comfort of your home!

Please allow me to introduce myself for your consideration for your private culinary needs. My name is Marcie Santoemma, and my passion is creating culinary delights for the enjoyment of others. I was a 28-year resident of Lake Tahoe and moved back to the Bay Area (Marin County) in March of 2018. While in Lake Tahoe I completed the full Culinary Arts Certificate program at Lake Tahoe Community College. I then started my own Personal Chef business, and now I have 17 years of experience cooking and creating dinner parties from start to finish. I specialize in small parties or gatherings of 20 guests or fewer. Often they are friends and family wishing to get together in the quiet and comfort of their own home. Also popular and a trendy alternative to going out, I am often hired for bachelor or bachelorette parties, corporate retreats, family reunions, small wedding receptions, celebration of life gatherings, bridal showers, anniversaries, and birthday celebrations. Whatever your occasion, I would welcome the opportunity to prepare that special meal, and create a most memorable experience.

I focus my cooking style on comfort foods using fresh organic and sustainability sourced provisions. I pride myself in taking care of every little detail. I am well-versed in a variety of cuisines, and have a passion for creating food with great taste and appealing plate presentation that is nutritious for the body, and the soul.

Although I take my cooking seriously, I am not a “temperamental chef.” I usually try to find the humor in situations and am pretty easy going. I have cooked on camera for NBC Productions, wine tycoons the Gallo Family, NFL stars and Lake Tahoe celebrity golf tournament players, David and Derek Carr, and also celebrity Budd Friedman, founder of the Improv Comedy Clubs and the Comedy Central Network.

In the summer of 2008 I cooked for NFL star Tony Romo for his girlfriend’s private birthday party, celebrity Jessica Simpson along with her sister Ashlee and husband Pete Wentz. In the summer of 2014 I cooked for reality show celebrities from Housewives Of Beverly Hills, Kyle and Mauricio Umansky. Most recently, this past summer of 2017, I cooked for NFL Quarterback Jared Goff and his family and friends while in Lake Tahoe for the Celebrity Golf tournament.

So for that next special celebration, don’t be stuck in the kitchen unable to relax and visit with your guests, contact Marcie and leave the cooking to me! For more information, resume, references, etc., please feel free to contact me via phone or email.

Thank you for your interest!

“Our family has been hiring Marcie on occasion over the past five years. What I love most about the experience is she creates a menu based on your wishes and adds special touches like fresh flowers to create a very special evening for your family. I enjoy not worrying about a thing because she takes care of it all, even cleaning. This allows everyone to relax and enjoy each other’s company. The food is great, well prepared and uses organic ingredients which is important to me.

I highly recommend Marcie and know you will be pleased with your choice.”
