“The greatest dishes are very simple.”- Auguste Escoffier

Chef Summer Kortkamp

Meet The Chef

I am a classically trained Chef with experience
in a wide array of World Cuisine as well as
time-honored American favorites. My approach
to creating the ideal culinary experience for my clients is to allow the ingredients to speak;
to give them a voice. My cooking philosophy is that food anchors us; it steadies us and brings balance to our day-to-day routine.  Food ties us
to our families, to our cultures, and to our rich histories.  The act of eating brings us together, and in doing so, it creates vivid timelines and leaves a unique imprint upon our lives.  I like to treat each dining experience as a journey to remember.  I utilize organic, local, and seasonal ingredients whenever possible. This allows me to enhance the natural flavors of the components at their pinnacle of freshness.  Nature itself is in perfect harmony. My role as a Private Chef is
to listen to the symphonic rhythms of the ingredients, fine-tune, and adapt them
to the needs of my clients.
