Meet Our Chefs!
Hello! I'm Caterina and I have a huge passion for authentic and traditional Italian food. I moved from Italy 6 years ago and in 2018 I decided to open up a service, Sugo, to sell our tasty lasagna, pasta, meatballs and much more to all the pasta lovers in the Bay Area. Sugo means “sauce” and we prepare our sauces with care, using only the best ingredients. The dough of our lasagna is rolled out exactly how my mom and grandmas taught us, respecting the tradition of lasagna served at every family reunion.
All my dishes are made from scratch with fresh and natural ingredients for your family!
Chefs GeorgeAnn & Steven
We are a "Dream Team" mom & pop couple with over 30 years of experience working in and running 3-4 star restaurants in NYC and The Bay Area. Since 2017 we have combined our passion for cooking and hospitality and been catering personalized events for 10-250 people all over The Bay Area. We named our service Family Meal Catering because of our love of breaking bread with family. We love the meal delivery format that enables everybody to access the highest restaurant-quality meals in their own home every day of the week. We know that you will feel proud serving our meals to your family.
I'm a former NCAA softball player and certified Nutrition Coach, born and raised in the Bay Area. My passion for health and nutrition began when I became a collegiate athlete - I was a starting pitcher on the women’s softball team at the University of Redlands for all four years.
I personally experienced the negative and positive effects of nutrition on performance. When I took the time to care about what I put into my body, I felt the difference in my level of play. When launching LL’s Kitchen, I set out with the goal to change the way we as a society think about food. It is undeniable that different foods affect the way we feel. With granola from LL’s Kitchen, you can feel good about what you’re putting in your body, while simultaneously enjoying delicious food.
I became a chef with two of my passions in mind - cooking and helping others. I have a passion for cooking and a love for delicious and "good for you" food. I also have a background in Early Childhood Education and was a first grade teacher for over two years. I nannied while I attended San Francisco State. After caring for the children, I was responsible for meal prep and made sure they had well balanced and home cooked dinners, so I have a lot of experience cooking for families!
My approach to cooking is balanced and fresh family style meals with hearty salads and sides that will keep you full but light on your feet. For the ultimate convenience, all my food is either heat and eat or grab and go so that you and your family don’t miss a beat. I hope to bring a little more convenience (and delicious food) to your busy lives!
My love of food had humble beginnings - cooking for my friends and family. What started as weekly Sunday dinners quickly evolved into a professional career. While studying for my masters in music, I found myself more and more consumed by my love of food. From there I started a company focused on the pairing of food and classical music, started working full time in the restaurant industry as a cook, and now spend my time organizing food events, catering parties, and cooking for all of you!
As an SF native, I care deeply about our community and environment. I shop as local and sustainably as possible, so I can bring the best seasonal ingredients to your table. I am passionate about the craft of cooking so everything on my menus is always homemade (from stocks to hummus to tortillas and more). My food is inspired by California cuisine and global flavors. If you see me at the Clement Street farmers market please say hi!
My approach to cooking is simple, flavorful, and family focused. Everything delivered to you and yours is exactly what I would want at my dinner table with my family. With the hustle and bustle of your lives, let me take on the stress of getting dinner on the table for you. I hope that you can taste the spirit of Aloha and some of those island flavors in the food I prepare for you and your loved ones. I also hope a story or two comes from it - that is always my favorite part of a meal shared with family!
I have been a caterer for nearly a decade and am excited to share my craft as a home chef, especially for all the busy families who are working from home. I grew up in Virginia eating and cooking wholesome, Southern cuisine, so these influences will be reflected in my menus. I am also a proud dad and know the importance of feeding my family delicious and nutritious meals. Excited to bring my food to your home!
Greetings Peninsula people! I've lived here for over 30 years, and I love cooking, creating, and putting on parties & celebrations. I have two daughters; one is a middle school teacher in Daly City, and the second just started high school at Summit Prep. Both were born "natural" vegetarians, so I learned to make a lot less meat and a lot more vegetables.
I care deeply about our community, and the earth, so I work hard to source the BEST and healthiest ingredients I can. Let me help take care of you and your family and I will share some of my best creations with you!
I love to cook and create! Growing up on the Monterey Peninsula with parents who both loved to cook and entertain, cooking has become a part of who I am. Having spent many years living in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I love to put Southwestern flavors into many of my dishes. I love to create recipes of my own by incorporating a variety of global cuisines into a singular dish. I am self-taught cook but am very passionate about my craft; it's what I love to do! I hope you enjoy :)
After a career in tech, my post corporate life has been devoted to cooking! I have been a Chef/Instructor/ Caterer for Private Events at Sur La Table, Sunset Magazine, Boys & Girls Club, Eastside Academy and Common Threads. The last 10 years I have been a Private Chef for families on the Peninsula. I was born and raised in Palo Alto but have been fortunate to study, work and travel the globe. I enjoy cooking fresh, seasonal, tasty meals for busy families!
In 2004 I stepped out of the world of Strategic Business Consulting to focus on raising my sons. I have spent the past 19 years nourishing them and honing my skills in the kitchen. My growing boys loved to eat and craved good food. I wanted them to have a healthy and diverse palette and this motivated me to continuously improve my cooking skills and try new flavors and techniques.
Over the years, I have received dozens of cookbooks as gifts - these have been the primary source of my culinary education. The likes of Thomas Keller and Jamie Oliver have inspired creativity in my meals. Michelle Tam and Yotam Ottolenghi have helped me balance my meals nutritionally while still ensuring they are delicious. My guys have been a joy to feed over the years. My youngest is about to start his senior year of high school, and I don’t have as many mouths to feed. I hope to share my love of good, healthy food with the community and help you nourish your growing families.
I started baking and making in my young adolescent years. While my family sat down for movie nights I would watch from the kitchen while I learned how to turn a simple box brownie mix into something lovely and delicious. My young love for baking evolved into designing and making grazing platters and bites for events and testing flavor profiles on my friends any chance I get.
I like to describe myself as an Elementary Teacher by day and a cook by night. I have a passion for academia and a love for making :)
I believe that the food we eat should taste and look vibrant and I’m elated I get the chance to create that experience for you!
My love for food probably started with my mother. Like any other kid from the Midwest, I enjoyed licking the spoon of some boxed brownie mix in the early 80s. As both parents worked, I began spicing up the mac and cheese or adding Tabasco to my ketchup. Fast forward 15 years, I attend the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont. After cooking all over the country, I landed in San Francisco in 2011 on a vacation that’s apparently still happening. I’ve worked in several restaurants in the city, and spent seven years as a personal chef for two families. Most recently, I was a chef at the Four Seasons, when you know what (the pandemic) happened. I turned lemons into lemonade during this time and started a meal delivery service. I cook for about 10 families weekly. My specialties are seasonal classics like a traditional bolognese or a classic coq a vin. I respect food and traditions, and add my own twist to old favorites. I look forward to cooking for you and your family.
