Marcel was amazing! It was a five star experience from the service he offered, to the food he cooked, to the time he took to prep for my event. We had two chefs at my event who were amazed and very impressed with his cooking! I highly recommend him!

The catering staff was amazing and polite. We got one chef, one assistant, one server and one DJ. They arrived on time. Server helped us set up and clean up everything. DJ was great! They did a wonderful job! Price is very reasonable and acceptable. Paid them with extra tips when service is finished. Love the team! Recommend for any events!
Marc is fantastic! This is the first time i have used a personal chef and can say its the best choice ive made.. I train gym 4-5 times per week and approached mark to make me 6 meals for 6 days of the week all equally portioned with proteins and carbs. The food was delivered fresh every two days and packed in plastic containers. It was even labelled with the nutritional values. The food itself was restaurant quality! I have eaten out at restaurants alot over the years so was little worried about how the quality of the meat would be and how well it would be cooked. Marc uses the freshest ingredients and cooks the products to perfections! I would highly recommend mark wether its a small dinner gathering or something more serious like myself with 36 meals per week! Thanks Marc
The experience was incredible. I needed a professional chef at late notice in San Clemente and he helped complete the menu with me under my budget and have spectacular food. I had at least two of everything (sides, entrees, and dessert). I could not have had a better food setup overlooking the beach in San Clemente.
I hired Sierra Madre Catering for my husband's 40th birthday party held at my home. The set up process was so easy, they were so accommodating with the menu I wanted (even though it included fried foods and philly cheese steak sandwiches which are hard to make on-site). The moment they got to my house, Tonya and her chefs were so professional, speedy, on top of it all! They made my night so much easier and fun and I finally got to enjoy my own party for once! They left my house very neat like my kitchen was never used! They picked up after my guests throughout the night. My favorites were inside-out Philly cheese steak, pulled pork sliders, mac & cheese, potstickers and garlic fries. Thank you and looking forward to seeing you again!
I am very pleased to recommend Chef Travis Pena as a personal chef. I've retained Chef Travis for years to create fabulous dinner parties in the privacy of my home. In our initial interview, Chef Travis asked many specific questions and took notes as we discussed the style of food I would like served. He annotated likes and dislikes. Together we have created several personalized menus. Chef Travis delivers restaurant excellence as he both prepares and serves the meal. Chef Travis is always prepared and well organized with a very positive attitude. Working with Chef Travis each time is pleasant and stress free. Every meal is delicious and precisely prepared. I greatly enjoy leftovers the next day! As a Chef, Travis is professional in every aspect. He cleans efficiently while preparing fine cuisine leaving behind a clean kitchen and delicious food. The only traces of Chef Travis are the lovely aromas and stocked refrigerator. I would highly recommend Chef Travis as a private chef. His service and customer service are exceptional. He provides a relaxing experience. Working with Chef Travis has been a wonderful treat. I look forward to our future dinner parties. Sincerely, Samantha Pitts
So Devine Catering catered an engagement party for my daughter. I can't say enough how awesome they are. I had never hired a caterer before and was a bit out of my element. Chef Alexa was super cool and kind enough to walk me through the process, meet with me and really did an outstanding job. Chef Alexa and her entire team are just awesome. Everyone at our party was impressed. Just can't say enough great things!
Steven is incredibly professional, enegertic, and skilled at what he does! We loved having him as a private chef for parties and intimate gatherings-- he brings a great enthusiaam to his work, and the food was Michelin star quality!!
On Feb 1, 2018, Chef Amy performed her private chef services at my girlfriend’s birthday party with our teenage daughter. Amy curated a delicious 5-course menu based on our favorites. She prepared the food in new fun beautiful ways. Amy was funny, approachable and professional. She brought all needed cooking and serving ware. She cooked and cleaned up everything. Amy explained and presented every course of the meal and prepared unique never seen before drinks that were a huge hit! The food portions in each course were just right and completely filling. Amy clearly loves cooking and enjoys interacting with clients. Amy was sooo good by evenings end that we were singing to our throw-back music playlist and hugging her goodbye with anticipation of a future event. I definitely plan to hire Amy many more times in the future. HIGHLY RECOMMEND- 5 STARS
I have hired Daneen for my annual bday party dinner party in addition to many other special social functions I have put on and she embodies every attribute associated with what you find in a top notch professional chef. She is punctual, detailed and meticulous in her delivery, and extremely organized with the execution of the entire dinner. When you work with her, her delightful and charming personality wins you over in seconds and she shows you how much effort, commitment and desire she puts forth to make your dinner party a huge success. She cares about her work as if she was cooking for her own family. As for her actual cuisine, one of the most underrated and undiscovered culinary gems we have here in our city. I have told her countless times that if she ever needs a willing tongue to taste anything she is experimenting with, count me in! I consider myself to be a snobby foodie with a demanding palate and even when " whips up a little something" I am on cloud nine and demanding that any and all leftovers are mine to keep. She genuinely loves to cook and you can really taste all the love she puts into her work. For anyone reading this review, do yourself a favor and treat yourself to her culinary magic and you too will soon be more than excited to write a review like this one for her.
I was working out with a trainer, and doing cardio at least 6 times a week; I was barely moving the needle on the scale I stood on each day. My trainer was very helpful in helping me realize it was what I was eating each day and not eating enough of the right foods. My trainer had suggested I look at a few meal plans. As I was looking at this options I knew if I got the standard meal plan delivery from one of the well-known companies, I would end up throwing half of the food away. I then made a conscious effort to explore and search for other options, and I discovered Carmi. I have been very pleased with my results, and I have been utilizing her personal chef services for almost two years! My original plan was to utilize her for six months, as I prepared to be on a web-series reality show. I dropped the weight I needed and I made a choice to continue with her. I love that we design my meals each week, and we change them according to my palate, and what I need to help keep me healthy. I will tell you all of her meals are scrumptious and addictive! I have regular requests each week, as I must have those dishes! She is very dependable, reachable and always ready to work with you. This is a truly one-on-one personal chef design. Take all of those frozen food meals in your freezer and toss them out; as Carmis meals are fresh and organic and just plain yummy!
We had such a fabulous time at Chef David Gussin's pop up dinner. There was the perfect mix of beautiful ambience, great music, friendly people, and of course the incredible four course meal, which was acommpanied with Chef David's signature complimentary craft cocktails. Cannot wait to attend his next pop up dinner!!
Chef Lofthouse is incredible. He catered my 26th birthday party and fed 32 famished twenty somethings. Everything was amazing from the stuffed mushrooms to the bbq sliders! He was prompt, responsive and immensely attentive. I never saw an empty tray the entire night. This allowed me to relax and enjoy the party because I knew that he was 100% on top of it. We all know how hard it is to let go when you're hosting a party because you want everything to be great and your guests to be happy. I don't think I've ever had a party run as smoothly as this one and Chef Lofthouse was a big part of that. I will not only be hiring him again but I've already referred him to all my friends and clients. Thank you for a great night Chef!
Chad was very pleasant from the start. His home was very inviting, clean, and safe. He gave me a debrief on his experiences and specialties. His background in Kinesiology works in his favor, he is very aware of the anatomy, and knows exactly how to target the pressure points, properly. The mood was set, and he use an adequate amount of oil (I dislike for a masseur to use too much), and he was conversational and kind the entire time. Additionally, his height worked in his favor, as well, because he is able to move fluidly and adequately apply his body weight to maximize the massage experience. I left feeling light, loose, and less stress. Lastly, Chad also took the time to educate me on the muscles groups and small parts of the body/muscles that I was not aware of. Overall, great experience and I will return for another great session.
Greg was everything I could have wanted in a personal dining chef! Such a warm personality, professional yet personal, and off the chart food. I could go on and on about the food combinations, the incredible taste, and presentation of a five star meal, made with love. You will not be disappointed with Greg: hands down, a one of a kind experience:))
Jeanne provided an anniversary dinner for my husband and I at our home and was very accommodating to our dietary requests. She prepared a delicious 5 course Italian, keto-friendly meal and we were both very satisfied with her service, professionalism and tasteful food. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a personal chef and will definitely request her again in the future.
I regularly hire Chef Leo and Christina to do events at the clubhouse and for our regular summer BBQ. The reason I hire them is because their food is soooo good. We have had other catering companies do the events in past years, but there is nobody that gets the food RIGHT ON(!) like these guys. Somehow, they manage to delight us with incredible food every time they do a catering. They do the entire event and they do it well, but its the food that makes them stand out. Thanks Christina and Chef Leo!
Everything was wonderful from start to finish with Chef Shinar! She made great suggestions as well! So happy we went with her and everyone loved her cooking. Definitely recommend and will look forward to working with her again.
Going with Darrell as my personal chef has been a gamechanger. Everything starts with what you put in your body and since hiring him to prepare meals for me, I've been eating healthy consistently, looking better and feeling better and more energized overall. I love the variety of his menus as well as his use of healthy ingredients and meticulous choice of produce and meats. Whenever I'm washing the dishes afterwards, there's never anything congealed or greasy. The meals are paired together in an expert fashion. I've been recommending Darrell to all my friends and would give more than 5 stars if possible. Best decision I've made!
Discovering FoodPeople was a dream come true for this busy business owner. To me, the thought of planning for and preparing meals is overwhelming and intimidating. And as a single women with no kids, it’s hard to justify spending the time to cook just for myself. When I met Eren and Chef Emre I felt comfortable knowing that they understood me, my lifestyle and my food preferences. They delivered on all of their promises and continually go above and beyond to exceed my expectations. I would highly recommend FoodPeople to any individuals or families who value high quality, wholesome food prepared with great care and attention.
