I’m Amanda. I have two major loves: FOOD and TRAVEL...and I’m excellent at cooking, eating, and exploring. How did I become a personal chef?
I’ve worked in restaurants since I was thirteen while growing up in New Zealand. From my first job at Chocolate Fish Cafe cooking for "Lord of the Rings" celebrities, to working in the finest eating establishments in Wellington, NZ- I gained valuable hands-on experience. In 2004, with my family, we opened Vivo Enoteca Cucina- an award winning wine bar and Italian restaurant. After Vivo, I worked as a personal chef on private jets, mastering the art of cooking at 40,000 ft, and finding/creating dishes from all over the world. My travels landed me in Park City, Utah in 2012, and it's been hard to leave since!
Park City’s skiing, hiking, amazing natural beauty keeps me here… As for the food? Well, that’s why I personal chef! I dedicate myself to my clients to provide delicious dishes made from the finest local and organic ingredients.
From creating a beautiful holiday meal for your family to high end Sundance catering for a cocktail party to planning a menu to accommodate special dietary restrictions, I love to turn up the heat and get into the kitchen!
Get the most out of your Utah vacation and leave the menu planning, shopping, COOKING, and clean-up to me!
