Healthy Meals Always Fresh, Always in Season, Always Affordable

About Us

What does A Posto Mean?

 ‘A Posto’ is an Italian expression that means ‘everything is in place’ which symbolizes what we want our clients to experience: To enjoy a delicious healthy meal made with fresh, seasonal ingredients without the worry of meal planning, shopping, cooking, or cleaning up afterwards—a posto! 

Who is A Posto?

 Chef Pati holds the appropriate business licenses and liability insurance, is certified in food safety through the nationally recognized ServSafe program, holds a State of Oregon Food Handler’s Card, and is a graduate of the International Culinary Center in New York City. She spent five months in Italy learning the secrets of Italian cuisine and is ready to share them with you.

Why Hire Us

Our service is not what you will get with a traditional caterer.  We prepare all food onsite at the client 's location, whether that is a private residence, a vacation rental or local venue with an available kitchen.  All ingredients are purchased locally and are as fresh as can be. You will taste the difference.

Private Chef

Are you looking for more than deli and fruit platters?  Hire a private chef for your next event.  We work with each client to discuss their tastes, dietary requirements, budget, and schedule to develop a menu that is customized just for them and their guests.

Please note: We are best suited for intimate events and smaller gatherings of 2 to 30 people. For larger events that may include the rental of china and silverware, tables/chairs, linens, entertainment or bartending services, we recommend using a full-service caterer.

We can prepare food from nearly any cuisine and we are happy to work with local purveyors of wine and spirits to develop beverage pairings to match your menu choices; however, as we are not OLCC licensed, we do not offer bar service.
All food is prepared in a kitchen that is located either in the client’s home, vacation rental, or event location to ensure it is fresh and delicious upon serving.  We do not purchase premade or frozen food items to reheat onsite; all of our food is made from well-tested recipes created or modified by our chefs.

3 course meals starting at $40 per adult for 6 or more (children 6-12 are half-price and free age 5 or younger).  A 20% service fee is added to the total.  All pricing is based on current market prices.

Cooking Classes

A Posto Personal Chef Services LLC offers custom Private Cooking Classes designed for people looking to increase their culinary skills within the private setting of their own home or vacation rental. We have developed three formats for your learning preference: demonstration only, hands-on, or a combination (interactive).  Our Private Cooking Classes are ideal for holiday parties, reunions, retreats or weekend getaways with friends. And for businesses, you can use the hands-on cooking class format for corporate team building.
We develop the menu and format of the private class based on your requirements. And you get to enjoy the finished products at the end of the session no matter the format.
You can choose a private class that focuses on specific topics such as pasta making or one based on a broad topic such as seafood preparation. Our chefs can develop a private class on an ethnic cuisine or comfort foods. For those staying in a vacation home, private cooking classes offer a unique entertainment option, especially during seasonal inclement weather.
Private Cooking Classes can be customized to integrate with our Small Dinner Parties Service. With either chef instruction format, we can arrange the menu items to be served in a group dining setting. Guests get to enjoy watching or participating in the food preparation, and we take care of all the other details like the grocery shopping, serving and kitchen clean up. Private Cooking Classes are also a unique way to celebrate a wedding, retirement, birthday, anniversary, or graduation.

Pricing for recipes, ingredients and instruction starting at $60 per person.   All pricing is based on current market prices.

If Quality and Flavor is Important, then We Are the Right Fit for You!

"There is absolutely no substitute for the best.  Good food cannot be made of inferior ingredients masked with high flavor.  It is true thrift to use the best ingredients available and to waste nothing."
