Introduction: As a chef, I have been creating customized meal plans for private clients in Los Angeles for two decades. I classically trained at Le Cordon Bleu in London, where I also worked for Marco Pierre White at his Michelin Star restaurant L’Escargot. On returning to Los Angeles, I saw a need for clean, quality foods. I turned then to personalized dining, incorporating individual tastes and dietary needs balanced against my clients longterm goals for a healthy and happy lifestyle. I create delicious and rewarding meals using only the freshest organic ingredients sourced from local farmers markets. All of my meals are individually planned, prepared, packaged and delivered directly to you. My goal is to take the challenge out of eating well on a busy schedule. Recognized several years running as a "Thumbtack Best” for Personal Chefs, I work diligently to provide my clients with the highest quality meals and service. My one on one approach with my clients fills the gap left by larger commercial food delivery services, bringing food and nutrition back to a personal customized experience. I enjoy working on a personal level with a small handful of clients to help them achieve their dietary goals.

Carmi has been great. She is very knowledgeable about food and has helped me learn new things about food. She is also a great listener and really cares about what meals she will be preparing for you. I do not know much about nutrition but i know I wasn't eating very healthy, so I needed someone like Carmi to help guide me with my food. I am very glad I found her, and grateful she has helped so much in such little time. Her food is great by the way. Very tasty and perfect portions!

Finding Carmi was the very best thing I could do for my family and myself!!! As a working mom, knowing that dinner is handled and that it is healthy, organic, local and delicious gives me huge peace of mind and eliminates so much stress from my life!! My 23-month-old son is eating everything she makes, including all the veggies, and he’s getting so many important nutrients to grow because of it! Thank you SO much, Carmi!!
