  • A Bit of History

    line
    The Purple Artichoke, (a member of the thistle family), has been cultivated since the time of the Ancient Greeks and Romans. Ancient Greeks and Romans considered artichokes a delicacy and an aphrodisiac. Today, it is considered one of the highest producing anti-oxidants among all the vegetables. For centuries and even today, it is considered highly medicinal in aiding digestion, strengthening liver function and in reducing cholesterol levels. read more >

  • Meet Chef Emmanuelle

    line
    I was born in Malta, a small Mediterranean island off the boot of Sicily, known for its lush blue waters, the filming of “Troy” and Bogart’s “The Maltese Falcon”. Like the artichoke, our history dates back beyond the Roman and Greek empires. Coming from a family of chefs and people passionate about cooking, I started my training at the young age of 12, side by side in the kitchen with my grandmother, who was a chef as well. read more >

Compliments on the Chef

  • We hired Emmanuelle to provide a fun and tasty dinner for 10 of us during my sister’s bachelorette party weekend in Sonoma County. Our palates ranged from the sophisticated to the eating habits of a toddler! However, our meal was delicious and every single person loved their meal and we couldn’t stop talking about how fabulous everything was. If you want to do something special or different for an evening with friends, then definitely consider hiring the Purple Artichoke Chef! You get to sit back and relax and then enjoy an out of this world meal! Another perk……she does the dishes too!

    Thanks again! We loved it.

  • Chef Emmanuelle prepared dinner for our very small, special-occasion dinner party. She was extremely responsive to our requests while still remaining true to her culinary style. Although our group had diverse food interests, she pleased everyone with the menu she designed. We all loved the delicious food!  Working with her was very easy. She was reliable, organized, and punctual, and she took tremendous pride in her work.
