Fan of dinners at home. Champion of lazy-fancy. Lover of all things Italian.
Olivia Muniak is a self-taught chef who grew up in a New York City restaurant family. She creates enchanting 360 food-focused events for clients like Nike, Mytheresa, Moet Hennessey and Laura Mercier and has developed custom content and recipes for fashion and lifestyle and brands including Jenni Kayne, Craig’s Vegan and Anthropologie.
Her popular blog and IG feed is an ever evolving compendium of what she’s cooking (and eating), and a shoppable edit of her favorite kitchen and entertaining essentials.
Oliva’s entertaining M.O.? Settings should be candle-lit, evenings always begin with an aperitivo, and the conversation should be as delectable and inspired as the food. A good time around the table, she insists, spills into everything.
In 2019, newly arrived in Los Angeles, Olivia hosted a series of intimate dinners out of her tiny West Adams backyard. The multi-course family style meals, whipped up on her 24” vintage O’keefe & Merrit stove, were as much about making new friends and connecting with a new community as they were about the thoughtfully presented food and wine. Supper Club, as she called the now-legendary gatherings at home, remains at the heart of everything she does.
