About Me

Hi! My name is Tina & I’m new to the Table At Home family!
I am driven by the joy and satisfaction that my family and friends get from my cooking. I strive to always create something that is hearty, nutritious and delicious. I come from an Italian family where the food we make doesn’t just feed our bodies but feeds our souls, as cliche as it sounds. I want every meal I create to give my clients that feeling of complete satisfaction while also transporting them to a time where they had their favorite dish and all the emotion that comes along with it.
I have been cooking since I was 11 and my style has transformed from your typical Italian dishes to more healthy comfort food. My husband has a lot to do with this because he is someone who is very particular about nutritional quality. I try as much as possible to enable nutritional quality by making sure our food is coming from a reliable source which has required me to become more & more creative in how we were eating. It has challenged me to open my eyes and palate to many different flavor profiles and ingredients I would have looked over because it wasn’t in my wheelhouse.
I have some formal training in the Culinary Arts from Kendall College here in Chicago. Since then I have strived to make myself better and hone my skills in my daily cooking. I am a full-time nanny to a picky eater and have recently been cooking for a friends book club meetings, designing each menu to fit the theme and style of the book. It’s helped me be more creative and innovative in my meal prep and presentation.

  • We just had the most incredible evening thanks to Tina. I had never hired a private chef before, but given my friend was turning 30 we wanted to do something different. We were excited as soon as we saw her proposed menu. Everything was thoughtfully prepared and she even cleaned up after each course. The Mediterranean Hummus "Nachos" were gone in minutes, but her Moroccan-Style Stew was a fan favorite. It was a beautifully prepared dish that tasted even better than it looked. If you’re looking for a memorable experience, book Tina today.

  • Tina did a fantastic job and went above and beyond our expectations. Everything was very flavorful and made with high quality ingredients. Each course was very well thought out and had its own delicious flare. I could tell immediately that her passion is cooking for others, and she’s a very delightful person. Well done, Tina! We will definitely be hiring you again soon for our next dinner party!

  • Tina was professional and warm the moment she came into our home. She was on time and came prepared with kitchen appliances and all. When I would pop in the kitchen Tina always had everything under control. Every course she brought out was a delicious surprise that was presented beautifully.

    We would love to have Tina cook for us again.
    Highly recommend!
