Oh my. There are not enough stars for how perfect this private chef dinner was. From the first contact chef Boris and Carolina were so very attentive and lightening fast responders. Carolina is the most organized and sets your mind at ease that no detail will be forgotten or left out. I never worried they would execute our requests to perfection. She's is calming and a can do yes person. Pricing is beyond fair. The food was beautiful. The presentation was contemporary and current. The taste was spot on and no one left a bite on a plate. 10 star flavors and service. Left the place spotless. I have not one thing I would edit. It is so nice knowing before the event even begins you are in good hands. The attention Carolina gives sets all your worries free so chef Boris can come in and just hit it out of the park while you and guests sip cocktails.

I have been searching for someone i could trust who could make my daughters unicorn cake for her first birthday (im a very picky person). I was going to do a little photoshoot of my daughter smashing the cake. Im so happy i found Millie she went above and beyond to make sure she knew exactly want i wanted on the cake. It was all a last minute thing and im happy she was able to make it for me, she delivered the cake to me and the minute i saw the cake i knew i finally found someone who can make all my future cakes and pastries. I already booked her again for my daughters birthday party this coming Saturday. Thank you Millie and her assistant !!

Chef Leslie Ann made an AMAZING variety of gorgeously plated scrumptious food for a friend's baby shower. Everyone raved about the food! Chef Leslie Ann was professional, creative, and accommodating. I will definitely ask her to cater my future events!

Jennifer was a consummate professional. She arrived on time each day with a smile and ready to teach 3 wonderfully spirited young girls. She had patience and showed kindness to the girls and taught them how to bake very difficult pastries and a cake that you would find in a professional bake shop or patisserie. We were very pleased and would use Jennifer again.

    I've been to several events where Gerald was the main chef that catered and executed the event. His work is meticulous in the kitchen, and his food is excellent. His pastries are incredible and he even makes vegetarian dishes! Every encounter I've had with him has been great. The food is always made to perfection.

    We hired Brian to cook for a group of 22 for our friends 30th B'day party. Leading up to the event, communication was fantastic - Brian was responsive, communicative, and flexible with regard to logistics, menu selection, etc. He was happy to accommodate our requests, but able to offer informed, thoughtful recommendations in areas where we deferred to him, which we really appreciated since this was our first time hiring a chef for an event. During the party Brian and his assistant were efficient and competent - everything ran ahead-of-schedule, and the food was fantastic! All our guests have asked for his card to hire him for their special events, and we look forward to having Brian cook for us again!

    Ellena is incredible! She offers amazing food and exceptional service. She clearly loves what she does and is passionate about food and clients, offering creativity and customization. Whether looking to feed yourself or your family healthy meals or looking to host a knock-your-socks-off catered gathering - I work with her regularly for both and there is nothing she doesn't wow me with. The best Cuban sandwiches you have ever tasted for a fun Miami night theme, mashed potatoe bar for a midnight comfort food theme at a fancy holiday party - Ellena is creative, kind, and extremely talented. I would highly recommend her.

    I don't know how I'm going to do Brian's AMAZING cheesecake justice by only words, haha!! Yes, it is THAT amazing!! I'm cheesecake addict, most I've had are good; but Brian's cheesecake will make you want to chew extremely slow and savor EVERY morsel--never have I taken so long to eat just ONE slice!! 😮 THAT is how I know it is incredibly amazing!! I always want to introduce ppl to it because when you come across a piece of heaven, you want others to feel that same happiness, light, and joy. Can't believe I just described cheesecake that way... this is what happens when you have a slice of Brian's cheesecake 🤤

      About

      Hello, ladies and gentlemen. I would like to introduce myself, I am Chef Mark. My culinary background is over 10 years of experience including being a banquet chef at The Ritz Carlton in Laguna Beach, CA. Even though my background does come from higher-end cooking, I do not shy away from simple causal cooking. I love to cook and cater to all different events such as, birthdays, weddings, special events, graduations, cocktail parties, pool parties and many more. My goal is to not only deliver you with an ultra-flavorful taste from the food but also to give you a memorable experience that you may look back throughout the years. There is no such thing as too big of an event nor there is too small of one either. I do also have professional helpers if needed to assist me. The way it works is I will draft a menu up for you based on the dishes or theme you may want. Then on the event day, I will come on over to the location either with the food prepped and ready to go or start prepping there to give you more of the authentic surrounding whatever you may choose. Then, I will plate the dishes and serve or if buffet style set up individual dishes to be eaten at will. Then, after that I will clean the location and leave it cleaner than when I arrived to make sure on your end your job is to only enjoy your time with your guests and the experience. So, where do we go from here? Just simply call me, and I will gladly greet you and start planning your most enjoyable event also on getting a menu setup in addition to a quote on the event. If there was any service not mention on this ad, please still call or email me. I would gladly try to accommodate you. To my future client, I wish you have a pleasant day. Chef Mark

      I am a professional baker. I started baking when I was a child and I came from a family of pastry chefs. I have always known that this was my choice of profession. I believe that people can taste the love in food when someone who cooks it genuinely loves what he/she does. I have graduated from Le Cordon Bleu and have been part of such events like Golden Foodie Awards, Taste of Newport, Taste of Laguna and Make a Wish Foundation to name a few. I do custom cupcakes and desserts. I enjoy making that special event for you; the one that you will remember. Let us start making memories today!
