Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I hire Azzurro for my home or event?
    Yes, we are available for private dinners and catered events.
  • What kind of ingredients do you use?
    Azzurro uses only the highest-quality ingredients for your meals. All ingredients are sourced from local farms, markets and specialty stores.
  • Is there anything I can do before your visit?
    Have your kitchen counters free of clutter, your sink cleared, and space made in your refrigerator.
  • Are groceries included?
    No, groceries are paid for separately from the chef’s fee. This is to ensure you receive fine, organic meats, produce and pantry ingredients.
  • New Client
    A 50% deposit is due before each new client’s first service date. This payment locks in the cook-date and ensures that the chef has the funds provided to purchase groceries and other expenses. For future services, payment can be arranged prior to or on the day of the client’s service, at the chef’s discretion. Credit or cash are accepted and service will not be confirmed until deposit is received.
  • Cancellation
    I understand that things happen, and sometimes clients need to cancel. All cancellations must be made at least 72 hours prior to the service date to receive a full refund. If the client cancels within 72 hours prior to their service, half of their service total will be forfeited to cover any incidentals or materials already purchased. The remaining half of the service total will be refunded to the client.
  • Re-Schedule
    If a client needs to re-schedule, it must be done at least five (5) days prior to the scheduled service date and may result in a service charge. The chef will do his best to accommodate your new cook-date within current availability.
  • Menu Requests and Edits
    All final menu edits or submissions should be made three (3) days prior to the client’s service date, so the chef has the proper time to plan, prepare, and shop. Last-minute requests are subject to timing and the nature of the request, and will be honored when possible.
  • Are the cooking classes held in my home?
    Yes. All cooking classes are held in your home kitchen to get you more comfortable cooking in your home.
  • How far in advance should I reserve a cooking class?
    As soon as you know, reserve a date for a cooking class to ensure availability
  • How long do cooking classes take?
    In general, a cooking class takes 2–3 hours.
  • Do you offer a hands-on cooking class?
    Yes! Everyone in the class will receive hands-on experience, led by your chef. Feel free to ask questions and get involved.
  • How many people can I have in my cooking class?
    The recommend maximum cooking class attendance is 8 persons. Couples cooking classes are available too!
