ESB Boutique In-Home Dining

Epicurean Santa Barbara’s mission is to provide high-quality culinary experiences for its members. As we continue to respect the physical distancing precautions, we are excited to launch a new platform for creative, highly-personalized, and often educational events. These offerings are provided by ESB founder, Amy Baer Robinson, and include different options including private chef services for dinners and special events, meal delivery, and culinary demonstrations.

Experiences are held in the comfort of a member’s own home, and are customized to the member’s dining preferences. Given that many of us still desire fine dining opportunities, and culinary education, these opportunities give our members the chance to experience the memorable elements of the restaurant experience: the service, elevated food, and socialization; in the comfort of their home. These are ESB events where you choose the guest list and the experience.

Events can include multi-course dinners (plated or family style) for special occasions, interactive culinary demonstrations, or even Chef’s Counter dinners, where a small group of guests can be seated in the kitchen to observe and interact with Chef Amy throughout the dinner; which makes the experience unique and educational.

In your home, all safety and sanitary guidelines provided by the National Restaurant Association will be followed and adjusted, if needed, to the host’s preference. We strive to keep our guests healthy and safe, and will implement these food safety practices, such as wearing gloves when handling ready-to-eat products, cleaning and sanitizing surfaces, and maintaining distance when serving food and beverages.

We find great joy in sharing our love for the culinary arts through exquisite cuisine and fun demonstrations, and we strive to continue to inspire, enlighten and fulfill!

Below is a listing of dining options. These opportunities are exclusive for ESB members, and will only be available for a limited time with limited availability. We look forward to providing opportunities like those listed below, and are excited to offer a ‘taste’ of ideas in development.
