Mariana Carvallo: Your Personal Chef

If you want high-end, restaurant-style dining in your own home, then meet Chef Mariana Carvallo. 

Raised in Lima, Peru by her Cuban mother, while also spending much of her upbringing in Galicia, Spain (where the rest of her family lives), Mariana grew up surrounded by awesome food. Formally trained at Le Cordon Bleu Miami, Mariana deftly and harmoniously incorporates the flavors, cultures, and ingredients from all of these different world regions into her dishes.

Whether you are looking to have an intimate gathering or a large dinner party, Mariana's portable gourmet kitchen will "wow" your guests from the first to the last bite of her customized menus.


Mariana carefully sources local and seasonal ingredients from the best markets in the Bay Area. Here, she talks to team members at Bi-Rite Market in San Francisco to select the freshest and most seasonal foods for a dinner party. 

Mariana comes into your kitchen, with all of her kitchen tools and ingredients ready, to create a one-of-a-kind, fine dining meal. 

Attention to detail is key: Mariana creates beautiful table displays and curates the plating of her dishes.

No menu ever identicallyrepeats itself: Mariana caters to individual dietary needs and uses the market for inspiration in creating her dishes. Here is a select example of Mariana's dishes.
