Are You Looking for a Personal / Private Chef in the Lake Tahoe Area?

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. In July of 2022, I moved back to the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe. While at the Lake, I completed the full Culinary Arts Certificate program and have my A.A. in Culinary Arts from Lake Tahoe Community College. I then started my own Personal Chef business in 2001, and now have 22 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 many 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.

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!
