Pairings Events owners Kristin and Chef Jonathan Kay are a husband and wife team with a passion for food and hospitality. Pairings Events was created in 2020 when they were craving the presence of friends and loved ones. Being served food, wine, and hearing laughter gathered around a table sounded like a far-away thought. They wanted to bring the restaurant experience directly to your home, and that’s what they continue to do. They are excited to now offer cooking classes to share that passion and knowledge with the community.

Chef Jonathan creates customized menus, utilizing local seasonal ingredients and sources only the highest quality meats and seafood available. Kristin creates tablescapes, custom menus, and floral arrangements tailored to the client’s taste. Wine pairings carefully selected and explained per course make each dining experience fun and educational.
