Our team is as diverse as the menus we create. Hailing from multiple nationalities, backgrounds and locales, they each bring something unique to our service. Dedicated, expedient, and always on the lookout for the next detail, the people behind your event have devoted themselves tirelessly to their crafts with the goal to deliver only the very best.
Kristofer - Director
The director and (often times) your onsite chef. Kristofer spends most of his time between New York City and his hometown of East Hampton. Having begun his career as a savory chef, he has worked in notable kitchens throughout New York, Europe and Southeast Asia, before settling on his true passion of creating one-off experiences in unique locales.
He spends most of his time sourcing the best ingredients possible, whether that takes him to farms on the East End, Upstate, or Pennsylvania, or to fish markets and sustainable butcher shops, he cares deeply about the origin and nutrition of the ingredients we use. What you put into the pot you get out of the pot.
In addition to keeping his hands busy in the culinary side, his passion for sweets drove him to open his own chocolate works, KALAS Chocolate. Here he crafts amazing chocolates without the use of artificial ingredients, working to preserve the natural flavor of the ingredients.
