Private Chef Robin specializes in unique custom prepared menus for private dinner parties, small event catering and private cooking lessons in the Santa Barbara, Ojai and Santa Ynez Valley area. Each menu is tailored to the client's needs and specifications and created with seasonal, local organic ingredients. Chef Robin is classically trained working professionally as a private chef since 1984, here in CA. Her years of experience and knowledge working in restaurants, her own catering company and private homes have been a solid foundation for her personal chef business. Private Chef Robin is a gift for that special occasion, cooking class or culinary adventure. Her new cookbooks, A Taste of Santa Barbara, Crafting a Meal and A Taste of Ojai, A Collection of Small Plates share her recipes and highlight the foods she experienced while traveling in and around the Mediterranean often served for her private clients.
