About Me

A creative and focused Brazilian chef who has extensive hands on experience of working in all areas of a personal event. I have previously worked in world renowned and starred restaurants all around the world, as, the 2 michelin starred restaurant in São Paulo/BR, from Alex Atala, Olympe from Claude Troisgros, in Rio de Janeiro/ BR, also Acadia from chef Ryan McCaskey and Alinea from Grant Achatz, in Chicago. Had the opportunity of running my own restaurant in Manaus/Brazil, which gave me an enormous background on admitrating and running a business. Had the opportunity of working with private dinners and catering events, like weddings, corporate conferences and now I am looking to give and serve the best experience at your own home and be a starred chef at your own home so you can have a unique event.

  • This experience was fantastic!!!! Chef Diana arrived early and was very pleasant, prepared & clean also while following COVID-19 guidelines by wearing her mask and gloves & using the proper cleaning supplies. She prepared me and my husband an amazing 3 course meal & drink. I couldn’t believe everything she served us was FANTASTIC. From the appetizer to desert it was nothing short of 5-star quality in taste, presentation and portion.
    If you don’t do anything else in life please experience this at home five star quality dinner with Chef Diana.
    You won’t regret it.

  • All I can say is WOW!! The incredible dining experience that Diana provided for my partner’s birthday literally made me tear up at the end - the entire meal was just so special from start to finish, I’ll never forget it. Diana impressed from the beginning: her proposed menu was exciting and innovative and she was very flexible and communicative in preparation for the event. She even recommended some fabulous wines to pair with each course. For the meal itself, the ingredients Diana used were all fresh and local, the flavors were absolutely incredible, and her presentation was out of this world. Diana puts her big Brazilian heart into her work and it shows!! Did I mention that Diana is also a super friendly, warm, and engaging person?!! My partner and I and all of our guests were blown away by the whole experience with Diana. I definitely plan to hire Diana again and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DIANA for your next event - you won’t be disappointed!
