A Passion For Excellence

 Liane Ingham, Founder, The Artisan Kitchen and Cafe

Liane Ingham has a passion for excellence and an eye for detail. It is this passion and discerning perspective that inspired her to open her own catering company. For the past 17 years, A Private Affaire has been serving a highly sophisticated Bay Area clientele with creative and inspired menu offerings. From cuisine to décor and everything in between, you can count on A Private Affaire to deliver your most exceptional event ever, says Ingham adding, "We take pride in the fact that we work with each and every client to create customized events that are a reflection of their own personal vision."

If that weren't enough, Ingham's chefs work to incorporate the latest trends in local cuisine and use only the finest and freshest ingredients - from picking herbs and produce at the local farmer's markets to using locally grown meats and dairy products.

"We produce the finest and most creative cuisine for each event. We incorporate the wide variety of ethnic ingredients that are available to us in the bay area and we specialize in preparing only the freshest menus from ocean cuisine to vegetarian, pan asian and southern American comfort foods. Each and every event menu is a reflection of what you, the client, crave!"
