The Ritz-Carlton at Northstar a wonderful place to be able to cook at, a beautiful location with a great view of the mountains.

I was cooking for a small family, two adults and three kids. Enjoying a family ski vacation in Lake Tahoe. They wanted a nice dinner at home with healthy food for the kids. My clients relaxed at the kitchen bar, drank wine and chatted with me while I prepared their meal for them. It was very causal, just what they wanted after a long day on the mountain. After dinner, one of their girls was showing off her dance routine to a Katy Perry song, too cute. They were so much fun to cook for, another great family to be able to cook for.
