Hi Allan, I would LOVE to cook this meal for you, your wife, kids and family/guests. I am your guy. Actually, my wife is Mexican, we were married in Oaxaca (Mexican capital of mole), and I am a michelin-trained chef with a passion for Mexican food, so I would love to provide an elevated Mexican dinner for your wife.

cilantro-lime "leche de tigre", coconut milk, avocado, heirloom tomato, fried leeks

Asian Fusion Yellow Fin Tuna Ceviche
avocado, watermelon, sesame dashi-soy marinade, black quinoa pop

Main Course (choose chicken or beef, or I would even do both if you want)

Pollo con Dos Moles
chicken breast marinated 48-hours in special herb rub

Carne con Dos Moles
sous-vide perfect beef tenderloin roast
cooked to desired doneness, seared to perfection

Mole options (choose two):

Mole Oaxaqueño
7 different dry peppers - very spicy

Mole Poblano
chocolate & dry peppers - mild

Mole Negro
black chillies and pasilla - spicy

Mole Verde
green chillies and jalapeños

Mole Pipián
pumpkin seeds - mild

Mole Blanco
a blend of pine nuts and other nuts - mild


Sides: refried beans, guacamole and rice.

Dessert (choose one)

touch of lemon, pistachios, raspberry coulis

Warm Apple Tart

Madagascar Vanilla Crème Brulée
Food type
Mexican
Other Infomation

Allan, please note I don't have fotos of the mole, but I think the examples below serve as good examples of my plating. Please hit the message button with any questions. I can also make a couple of versions of the guacamole if you'd like. A traditional one, and maybe one with mint and pomegranate which is also delicious. Please check out my profile and reviews for more info!

One last note. I am scheduled to work that day. If you could let me know in the next week if you'd like to hire me, I will have plenty of time to look for a sub. We closer we get to the date it will be harder. No rush and no pressure, but just so you're aware. Thanks!

Rodrigo is a Michelin-trained chef who has worked with some of the biggest names in the culinary world, including Joan Roca from El Celler de Can Roca (twice No. 1 restaurant in the world – “The World’s 50 Best” – 3 Michelin Stars), Gaggan Anand from Gaggan (four consecutive times No. 1 restaurant in Asia – “Asia’s 50 Best” – 2 Michelin Stars), and Michael Anthony from the prestigious Michelin stared Gramercy Tavern. He graduated with distinction and top of his class from the International Culinary Center (ICC) in NYC (founded as the French Culinary Institute). ICC alumni have received over 150 Michelin stars.

“My life has occurred between meals. Like a clock, they keep me ticking. Some, in particular, have indelibly bookmarked crucial episodes of my existence. Great food has also been a compass, taking me to unimaginable destinations and allowing me to discover wonderful places and meet amazing people. For me, cooking is about nurturing and pampering people through food.” – Rodrigo Bravo –

  • Rodrigo was fantastic! He is personable, fun, and most importantly a great chef! The food was amazing and we all had a fantastic night.

    • Worked on January 15, 2020
  • Rodrigo came to my home yesterday to instruct/cook brunch for 10 women celebrating two of their birthdays. Rodrigo did a fabulous job. Everyone had an amazing time and have been exchanging ecstatic emails ever since! First of all the food was delicious, fun and just what we were wanting and expecting.. even better, Rodrigo was a total professional from start to finish. We exchanged helpful communication before the event; he arrived promptly; came fully prepared with the food and necessary cooking utensils and even had copies of the menu with recipes for everyone. He is knowledgeable as well as very personable and enjoyable. Everyone is anxious to have another event so they can have him back!! I would not hesitate.

  • Rodrigo was excellent from start to finish. He was flexible/helpful with the menu creation, arrived early, was super personable / respectful, worked with a less than ideal kitchen setup, and created an absolutely delicious meal that my guests (9 people in total) loved (and then left the kitchen spotless after). We couldn’t be happier with how this worked out and plan to do it again soon.

  • Chef Rodrigo's food and presentation was exceptional. He was very helpful in planning the menu. He made our dinner extremely effortless, easy and delicious. Highly recommend him.

  • We had a wonderful birthday party thanks to Rodrigo. He was very communicative throughout the process and accommodating to our food tastes and allergies. The food was tasty and plentiful for leftovers. Everyone loved the mole, even the kids tried it. Desert soufflés were over the top and at the end cleanup was quick and spotless.

  • Chef Rodrigo prepared an incredible meal and dining experience. From planning the menu to execution of the event, everything was done with care, professionalism. I would not hesitate to recommend or hire him again.

    • Worked on September 4, 2019
  • This was my first time using Table at Home, and my first time hiring a private chef. From start to finish, the entire process was seamless and easy. Chef Rodrigo was very responsive, flexible, and accommodating of our unique circumstances. But most importantly, we were blown away by the meal - this was truly a Michelin-star caliber meal in the comfort of our home. And I swear he left our kitchen cleaner than it was when he arrived - even without a dishwasher! If you're on the fence about trying a private chef, or if you're having trouble choosing one over the other, I promise - you will LOVE the experience of working with Chef Rodrigo. I absolutely will be hiring him again for our next special occasion. Thank you Chef!

  • Rodrigo’s dinner was everything we hoped it would be. The attention to detail and variety of flavors made it an unforgettable meal. His respectful demeanor and flexibility made the whole process easy and comfortable. I would highly recommend Rodrigo for his food and his character. Our favorite dishes were the beef tartare, tiradito and mamey ice cream. We wanted a unique dinner and that’s exactly what he provided. You won’t be disappointed!

  • Chef Rodrigo entitled his proposal "Sublime Italian Meal for 6." What he delivered was all that and more! He was so easy to work with, and enthusiastic in sharing ideas about how he could help create a menu that our guest of honor would love. Every course had a surprise touch that elevated the dishes from great to singular - Asian pear in the butternut squash ravioli, crispy leeks and a Japanese citrus in the burrata salad - and the presentation of each dish was beautiful as well, The personalized menu keepsakes were a lovely touch, and as other commenters mentioned, Rodrigo cleaned our kitchen thoroughly (including washing my grandmother's china by hand, which I really appreciated). We enjoyed having Rodrigo in our home, and he was gracious about answering my curious questions about cooking. I look forward to the next time I can hire him for a special event.

  • Rodrigo’s food was beautifully presented, well thought out, and absolutely delicious. This was my first Table At Home experience and we were lucky to have Rodrigo be our chef. We will definitely look to having more experiences in the future. It was magnificent!!

  • Rodrigo was wonderful. We all had a great time and the food he made was delicious. Everyone who came to the event was so pleased they all asked me for his information. I highly recommend this chef!

  • My wife and I used Table at Home for a 2-person multi-course dinner for Valentine's Day. As parents of two young ones under 5, going out for a nice meal is not as easy as it used to be. Table at Home provided the perfect solution and Chef Rodrigo was absolutely outstanding!!! I honestly struggle to find words to describe how great the meal was. In fact, calling it a meal is insulting....it was an EXPERIENCE. Chef Rodrigo makes everything himself, with flawless technique and deep flavors. He was a courteous and consummate host, but it was our house! If you're interested in a Michelin level dining experience in your own home choose Rodrigo!

    • Worked on February 5, 2019
  • Rodrigo was absolutely amazing. The dinner was delicious. It was a valentines dinner that will always be remembered. Not only will I use his services again but will strongly suggest him to others.
