Jose is a phenomenal chef and caterer. He's the first person I got to for any of my event needs. He catered my birthday surprise party and my wife's birthday party. Jose is incredibly resourceful, full of ideas and always finds a way to go above and beyond. Food is always great, very competitive on pricing and always very flexible and service oriented for your needs. He's definitely my go to guy for any culinary needs I have.

Chef Julian prepared our anniversary dinner at a home we rented in Palm Springs. It was BEYOND AMAZING! He was so great in planning our special meal and easy to work with. We were able to stay by the pool and enjoy without worrying about a thing! Appetizers, salad, main course and dessert were just perfect. He was so organized, set our table, helped with wine pairing and cleaned up everything. Very professional and a great guy! Wish he lived in our state!!! We are still talking about our molten chocolate cake!!!!!

HI all, My wife and I hired Jessica as our wedding coordinator for our 4 day wedding in February of 2017 in the La Quinta area. We live in Los Angeles, so we were looking for a pro who know the area well, and could help us with the planning, local vendor recommendations, supplies, etc. I can tell you this much, we were lucky to have found her. She is very proactive, straightforward, quick thinking, fast acting, and is moving a mile a minute. She hooked us up with her own professional bar, wait staff and chefs she has acquired relationships with over years of working events. She gave us recommendations on who to use for flowers, ice, booze, etc. She met us a few times on and off site to game plan for our multiple days of events, and made sure things ran smoothly throughout. We had negotiated fees, wages, timeframes all in advance, and by the time the weekend was over, everything was as it should have been and checked out. No funny business or discrepancies. Overall, she is just the sweetest lady, who wants to provide a great experience, so you don't have to worry about this and that. She's on it, is one sharp person, and very resourceful. I would highly recommend you give her a call for any size event, as she can handle both intimate and large scale. Thx so much for helping our wedding weekend to be so great and memorable!

Chef Ace was amazing! I hired Amanda to cook for my party of 5 friends in Palm Springs for a night. I had never done this type of thing before and was a little nervous, but I felt very comfortable with Amanda immediately. Within 5 minutes of my request she was the very first person to respond. She made it very clear that she was open to cook anything we liked, and we were able to create a menu together. Amanda created a wonderful 4 course meal for us that was made with all fresh ingredients. She was right on time and treated us as if we were at a restaurant. Although we tried to help with clearing dishes, Amanda insisted that we relax and she would take care of everything. The food was out of this world delicious and left us bursting at the seems. Any food left over was wrapped for us and left in our fridge. Not only was the food outstanding, Amanda was warm and professional. I could not not think of one thing I would change about the evening. I wish I lived in California so that I could use Chef Ace's services again. Anyone looking for an amazing personal chef, Chef Ace is the way to go. I didn't want to go through a company that would just send a chef I didn't know. Each time we spoke via text or call, Amanda is the person I got. No computers or secretaries, just Chef Ace. Thank you Chef for an unforgettable evening!

We found Joey on Thumbtack and after reading her profile we thought she would be the perfect choice for our personal chef dinner for my daughter's bachlorette weekend. Besides being a ton of fun Joey's food was amazing! Especially the Greek Brushetta!!! Yummy! Joey was a perfect fit and even though we had a problem with the rental home's BBQ she made it work. I do think that if Joey had a helper it might of been easier on her. Our crazy night in with Joey as our personal chef for my daughter (the bride to be), her bridesmaids/girlfriends and myself (mother of the bride) was everything we wanted! We truly enjoyed our evening and it was such a treat :)

I used Jacob for a special dinner event celebrating a very special person. Mr. Perez worked with me to create a special Menu for my guests, I had meat eaters, vegetarians, and vegans all in attendance, and he made sure there was something for everyone. His professionalism, skills, and service was impeccable. His mouth watering Filet Mignon with red wine demi glace reduction, whipped potatoes & sautéed vegetables is nothing short of amazing-My absolute favorite! I highly recommend Chef Perez, and can not rave enough how spectacular his food & service is, and how beautiful the presentation was. I exclusively use Chef Perez for all of my events.

Chef Stevie's service was excellent and the musicians he served were musicians who have experienced great food all over the world. My reason for having Chef Stevie cater for my dear musician friends was to say thank you to them for having supported me for twenty - nine years at the Idyllwild Arts Academy. Also, to let Chef Stevie know that I hold him in high esteem. He has met with enormous success and will continue to be the best he can be. There is no doubt, he is a voice above the crowd.

Chef Mark is an amazing chef! He was very professional. I had a small dinner party with friends. I wasn’t sure what I wanted. Since I am on a low carb diet. After speaking with him he created a Menu to fit my diet restrict but also carter to my friends non restricted diet. Appetizer was fried calamari with sweet and sour sauce. The salad was a fresh Ahi Tuna salad. The entree was mouth watering pan seared Scallops with lemongrass carrot ginger purée. Lastly was dessert which I could only have a taste of my friends apple crisp with vanilla ice cream and homemade salted caramel. It was to hard to resist. Chef Mark made fresh berries with he’s own whipping cream!

About

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!
