Our Story

Julia Chebotar, based out of New York City, and Tina DeJesus, based out of the Hamptons, joined forces to bring together the best private chefs from Manhattan to Montauk. When Julia and Tina first connected they quickly realized they were both ambitious chefs who were passionate about providing sustainable and health-conscious meals for their clients.


They both believe that healthy eating doesn’t have to be bland or boring. They believe in using bold flavors, colorful ingredients, seasonal produce, and using only organic, grass-fed and wild-caught animal products.

Chef Tina was formally trained at Le Cordon Bleu where she learned the art of French cuisine. Right after graduating she worked in a fine dining seafood restaurant gaining experience as a line cook. From there her career lead her to catering large events & intimate dinner parties. While she followed her passion as a cook Chef Tina also split her time with working as a lead server, bartender, & Maitre D making her the perfect host.

Spending over ten years working in hospitality lead Tina to living an unhealthy lifestyle of late-nights followed by sleeping all day and repeating the same cycle. She decided to change her way of living in 2013, where she dove into all thing’s vegetarian, nutrition, mental health, and yoga.
