About Me

I am originally from Moscow, and relocated to New York at a young age. While in NYC, I worked under Daniel Bouloud. I spent my 20s living, eating and cooking in Paris. Always inspired by Japan, I headed to Tokyo where I worked with Zaiyu Hasegawa at DEN, a two Michelin star restaurant which was named TOP 50 Best Restaurants in Asia. My biggest mentor was Pascal Aussignac, who I had the pleasure of working with in his Michelin star restaurant Club Gascon in London. Additionally, I have 10 years of private chef experience, collaborations and food styling. I offer private plated dinners, small/large gatherings. I work with locally-sourced, organic ingredients and have experience cooking with vegan, vegetarian, and kosher dietary restrictions as I used to live in Israel in my early 20s. I have knowledge of Asian, Mediterranean, and French cuisines as well as a wide-range of pastry making. I am able to travel in New York area, along with the occasional longer distance travel.

  • Chef Vera brought a fun attitude to a really tasty 4 course dinner. She did not mind traveling a bit far to accommodate our location! Best part of the hot pot was the left overs, so our experience didn’t have to end! Would highly recommend:)

  • Amazing! We had a wonderful time celebrating an engagement with family while enjoying Chef Vera’s four course dinner. Everyone enjoyed the food immensely and loved the experience. Chef Vera was very professional, explained dishes nicely and kept the meal moving at a perfect pace. Looking forward to having chef Vera back for another special occasion.

  • Spectacular! This was a very special night for me and my partner and the food was truly amazing. Throughout the process, Vera was very prompt and communicative, helped us with wine pairings, and tailored the menu to our exact specifications. Vera had an extremely upbeat attitude, even served the meal on our roof while cooking in the apartment. One of the best Italian meals I have ever had. 1000% would recommend that anyone looking for a fantastic meal to hire Vera!
