Our Story

No Place Like Home was founded in 2016 by husband and wife team Alberto Alvarez and Jennifer Bahme.

 

Alberto’s roots in the culinary arts date back to about age 12 when he recalls making traditional Spanish patatas bravas alongside his first cooking teacher, his mother Pilar. After years of learning from “the pro,” Alberto received formal training in International Cuisine at the Hospitality Institute of Majadahonda, outside of Madrid, Spain. Since graduating over 25 years ago, he has worked as a chef in a variety of establishments—from restaurants to nursing homes to schools. In 2007, Alberto formed his own catering company De Gira Como En Casa.

 

Jennifer, who moved to Madrid in 2010 as a transplant from New York City, was thrilled when she met Alberto and no longer had to worry about the lack of take-out dinner options in Madrid! She realized when they relocated back to the US that it was only fair that they share Alberto’s culinary talents with Westchester County!

 

Since then, No Place Like Home has been feeding many with their county-famous paellas and Spanish omelettes, along with a variety of other international specialties. Be it in your home for a private event or at a local farmers’ market on a Saturday morning, you won’t be disappointed in their impeccable service and delicious food!
