Call 510-658-7378 – we will confirm your reservation within 24 hrs



Raised in the heartland, Betsy Nevins has been close to the ingredients of good cooking since very early in life.  As a young girl growing up in Indiana, she developed her love of cooking and experience from watching and helping her mother, grandmothers and aunts prepare delicious family meals.  From her days of planting the family garden with her grandfather to the harvesting and canning of the bountiful produce with her grandmother, she has firsthand experience of farm-to-table cooking and knows the importance of naturally grown, fresh, local ingredients.  All this was just the beginning of her obvious calling to the kitchen and to great cooking.


Today, after honing her skills as a longtime resident of the San Francisco Bay Area, Betsy’s passion has been to develop, prepare and entertain her friends and clients with the creation of menus rich with the freshest ingredients and influenced by the many diverse cultures found in the food mecca of the Bay Area.  She loves a beautifully set table and every aspect of the preparation of a meal – start to finish.  She’s at home in the kitchen and loves the opportunity to inspire the ambiance that manifests when we come together as family, friends and even strangers to eat fabulous food and drink wonderful wines.  By the accolades of those who have sat at her table, she’s a rising star.


Betsy is currently a freelance caterer available for private parties, weddings, business functions and intimate dinners.

On Wednesday May 9th Betsy will be donating a portion of her profits to the Bread Project.  You can read more about them by clicking the logo below.

    Back in the day Betsy would make some of the best grilled cheese sandwiches and finger foods I’ve ever had. I found the the easiest way to enjoy Betsy’s craft was to hang out with her in the kitchen before parties/events stuffing myself.

    We had a wonderful dinner last night at Guest Chef. The flavors in each of Betsy’s dishes were wonderful, and everything had a freshness and lightness – even the lamb, which while hearty and comforting, wasn’t too heavy. I epecially loved the mushroom mousse. Our whole table was wowed by the desserts, too! The place itself is adorable, the service super warm and attentive.

    a love time – one i’m planning on replicating this week!
