CARLO COOKS BOOKS℠
Learn how to cook the foods you love to eat in a relaxing, in-home environment. We begin by creating a customized lesson plan and menu from a curated library of my favorite cookbooks. Students will be sent a detailed grocery list prior to class so they will have the necessary groceries on hand. Lessons are approximately 2½-3 hours and are centered around the preparation of a complete meal: First Course, Entree, and Dessert.

BRINGING NOURISHMENT TO YOUR TABLE™
Innovative. Delicious. Beautiful. Well-balanced. Seasonal. Wholesome.
While growing up in northern California as a child of Italian and Mexican parents, I developed a passion for cooking at a very young age. As I grew older, my passion developed as I sought to keep my families culinary traditions alive by taking numerous culinary courses in San Francisco and Napa Valley.
My training continued when I moved to New York in 1994 and found the numerous culinary opportunites at my fingertips. I began taking instruction at La Bonne Cocotte in both New York and Nyons, France, Peter Kump’s New York Cooking School, Anna Teresa Callen Italian Cooking School, and the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY.
As someone who is obsessed with entertaining friends and clients, and at the behest of many over the years, I decided to add the position of Private Chef to my lifestyle services. My formal training is primarily french-provincial and italian rustic. I enjoy introducing clients to the freshest in-season organic dishes, designed to awaken the pallete, please the eye, and warm the soul.
Over the course of my career, I’ve had the pleasure of cooking for numerous clients throughout the New York mertopolitan area, including Alec Baldwin, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Eartha Kitt, Bill Pullman, and Dr. Ruth Westheimer.
