About Me

Welcome!

My name is Billy Moschella Jr., and I am a cook and pastry chef with 25+ years experience in many facets of the food service and hospitality industries.  I specialize in the creation of custom-built meal plans for individuals, families, and for small-scale events and gatherings of all kinds.  I was born and raised in Boston as part of a boisterous and colorful family of Italian-American restaurateurs, with roots stretching back to Genoa, Naples, and Sicily.  I look back fondly upon the many days spent in the kitchen with my grandmothers, learning the secrets of traditional Italian cooking while Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra serenaded us on the crackly old AM/FM radio.

Throughout history, purveyors of fine cuisine, as well as those skilled in the arts of medicine and healing, have held fast to the understanding that one of the great secrets to health, happiness, and wisdom lies within the stomach, or as it has been called, ‘the seat of life’.  Great indeed are the ideas generated by a small group of people gathered around a well-laid table, enjoying fine food and engaged in even finer conversation.  I myself hold fast to the idea that wholesome, free-range, locally produced, and wild-crafted ingredients, when prepared with love by skilled hands and a passionate heart, have a way of bringing people together, thus strengthening the ties that bind.

As a small-scale personal/private chef and caterer, I have built out a unique model, in that I am happy to work with you to create custom meals of your choice, prepared either in your own home kitchen or on-site at your vacation rental property (lodge, resort, hotel, Airbnb).  Meals can also be made available for delivery (prepackaged in easy-to-reheat containers).  As part of this, I will handle all of the purchasing of food products, food preparation, meal setting, and clean up.  In addition, I am also able to prepare and deliver catering-style trays of fresh pastries and baked goods, which are available for direct purchase.  It’s like bringing the restaurant or the pastry shop straight to your front door!

Betony Traveling Café is available for: 

Small-scale personal chef and catering events of all kinds (2 to 30 ppl. for sit-down dinner service, up to 100 ppl. for family-style catering)

Cooking classes

Custom-built private chef meal plans for individuals and families

Intimate, candlelight dinners on a date night (2 to 4 guests)

How it Works

Private chef for vacation rentals, in-home catering events, and on-going weekly meal planning

Personal Chef and Catering Event Services

Exclusive Meal Services (2 to 30 guests) prepared in your home kitchen or vacation rental property (ex. lodge, resort, hotel, Airbnb).  Priced per person, all-inclusive (meal planning, grocery shopping, meal prep, waitstaff/table service, clean up).  Also offer catering-style meal services (delivery only or on-site waitstaff), for small-scale events of all kinds (up to 100 people)

Multi-day Retreats, Corporate Gatherings, and Vacations

Offering multi-day meal services for private and corporate retreats as well as extended family vacations

Cooking Classes

Do you wish to know how to prepare any of the dishes offered in the ‘Menu’ section of the site?  Are you looking for recipes for simple, family-style meals that the kids will enjoy?  Betony Traveling Café offers cooking classes, which are very hands-on in nature, and seek to involve all guests in the prep and cooking processes (including children).

Private Chef Services for Individuals and Families

Offering an array of custom-built, on-going weekly meal plans for individuals and families.  Meals divided up into daily portion sizes and stored in appropriately-sized containers for quick re-heating.  Offer the option of having these meals prepared either in your own home kitchen or off-site, and thus made available to you via delivery.

 Locally Sourced Ingredients and First-Rate Quality Control Standards

Because I very much advocate the use of high quality, nutrient-rich ingredients, I am acquainted with a fair number of local food purveyors, and have found that the quality of the growing and/or animal husbandry methods employed by these local farms and suppliers produces in turn food products that are not only rich in vital nutrients, but which also, when prepared properly, simply taste better.

Pricing

Pricing Information

Pricing varies depending upon the nature of the event being planned.  Betony Traveling Café offers the following pricing structures, listed out by event type:

One-time Special Event Offerings:

For all one-time Exclusive Meal offerings (sit down meal service) as well as Catering events, both ingredient costs and waitstaff fees are included as part of the price per guest, i.e. all-inclusive.  

Multi-day Retreats/Corporate Gatherings:

For multi-day retreats, vacations, and corporate gatherings, both ingredient as well as supply costs will be calculated separately from the cost for services rendered.  All food and supply costs shall be accompanied by receipts that outline the total cost of items purchased.

Cooking Classes:

Custom pricing based upon the nature of the dish or dishes chosen, number of guests, etc.  Prepared in the kitchen of your home or vacation rental property.  Classes are designed in such a way that all guests will be served a full portion of any courses that are prepared.

Initial Deposit:

For all one-time special event and catering orders, I ask for an initial deposit at the time of booking (amount will vary depending upon the nature of the event).  Remainder of payment for special event and catering services (minus the initial deposit) is due on the date of the event.  If for some reason circumstances do change on your part, such as the cancellation of your event, I am happy to work with you, on a case-by-case basis, to resolve this.

I am able to accept payments via Venmo or Cash App (mobile Apps), Zelle (bank-to-bank transfers), or in person (cash or check).  I am also able to accept credit cards via Square. All payments shall be accompanied by an Invoice for services rendered.
