Italian Private Chef for Private Occasions!

Antimo Cimino recently authored Food You’ll Make Love To: Ah Those Italians!
Born and raised in Puglia, Italy, Antimo holds a five years degree in Culinary, Hotel and Restaurant Management from IPSAR as well as a Nutrition Certification. Trust Antimo to create three or multiple courses for your gourmet meals, private and intimate dinners, or hire him for a cooking class.

I plan a meal with you, I do the shopping and than I come to your house to prepare it and serve it. My focus is Italian Mediterranean healthy food but I love to bring Asian and Mexican accents into my cooking style. I will cook  for two people to a max of twelve. For parties of eight to twelve people I bring an assistant.

All you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy your guests. From private family dinner, to cooking classes, to special occasions and romantic dates, I promise you will make love to my food.

Control what you eat, enjoy super healthy meals, use fresh ingredients, save time and money, and above all enjoy stress free experience, no mess, no clean up.

If you love wine and have a private collection, I will be happy to pair your favorite wine with the food. Meals tend to be three or four courses (Antipasto, Salad, Main course, Dessert).

I shop at a variety of specialty stores (Italian, Asian, Mexican) and local farmer markets and orchards.
