We wanted to put on a dinner at our house for our Advisory Board and Senior Management team. The problem is that after a long day of meetings who has the energy to cook? So we decided to search for a personal chef that could put together a meal that would rival a five star restaurant. Michael and his staff showed up on time and not only knocked the meal out of the park, they also cleaned up! I would highly recommend Gourmet Your Way Catering and Personal Chef!

Jose is very responsive and has great service, along with him being a great chef of course! He traveled to my parents house for us to do a tasting for our wedding and we were blown away. It was amazing. We got so many compliments from our friends and family about how good the food was. With that being said I have a couple nitpicky complaints for constructive feedback: The plates and silverware were not what we had originally discussed at the tasting. They were supposed to be the nice plastic that looked real and we got clear which looked cheesy to us. It could have had to do with the fact that we did the tasting about a year in advance and things could have been forgotten or overlooked but the change was never communicated to us. Also, my husband requested to have a spicy BBQ sauce during our tasting and the BBQ sauce was on the side at that time. We discussed having spicy and mild options. I was very excited for the pulled pork at the wedding but it had spicy BBQ sauce all over it! I thought it was going to be on the side, like it was during the tasting. It was so spicy that I couldn't even eat it. :( One of our aunts was not able to eat any of the meat because it was "too peppery" but that was the only other complaint that we got. Other than that everyone loved it. Everything was great and I would still highly recommend Mr. WorldWide Catering, it just wasn't quite perfect for my event.

We have had personal chefs in the past and all were good experiences, but Shawna was a cut above. The experience that she provided was exemplary in every facet. Shawna was personable, prepared, and her food was exquisite. She will be called upon in the future to cater any event we may have. We give her our highest recommendation.

Chef William was incredibly professional from the first phone call until that last hand shake good bye. He made himself available by phone, email or text at all hours of the day to facilitate the event planning at a time that was convenient for me. He was upbeat and enthusiastic about the event- open to suggestions, offering solutions, and always service oriented. He went over and beyond what I would have expected a chef to do all in an effort to make the event run smoothly and take some of the pressure off of me. That kind of blew me away. And the food was exceptional. I mean, really, really good— and that sentiment was shared among all my guests. And probably most surprising is that this first class service and exceptional food preparation came at an extremely reasonable price. I’ve hired many personal chefs for events over the years (and, in fact, used to own an event company) and I can say that Chef William is among the best. - M. Moynihan. Del Mar, CA

We hired Chef Mumsie to provide a special Birthday treat for our Mom. We ask her to prepare two dinners a week and deliver them for a period of two weeks. The food is spectacular! Chef Mumsie's attention to detail, personal touch and caring nature make for an exquisite dinning experience. She even delivered the first dinner herself. Our Mom got a kick out of seeing her in her tall chef hat. We have decided to extend our contract, as our Mom is enjoying having this treat to look forward to. Her only complaint is that the food is so good, she can't stop eating! I would highly recommend Chef Mumsie for your next event or need for a personal chef.

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 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!!!!!

I hired Chef Jacob to cook a birthday dinner at my rental house in Rancho Mirage for about 8 people. I loved the menu options he provided - it was exactly what my group was looking for. We ordered lamb as our entree, and it was phenomenal! The dessert was also made with local dates (loved that!) and was delicious. Chef Jacob is professional and I would hire him again if I were looking for a private chef in the area.

The type of job: Personal Chef Special Occasion. Price: $1450 The review: Chef Renee was a pleasure to work with! We had her cater a special birthday dinner. She was always available to answer questions I had and her food is ABSOLUTELY delicious. She arrived at my venue, asked a few questions and did her job professionally and flawlessly with a special personal touch. The setup was elegant. I cannot rave enough about her service and food. I would definitely use her again for any catering needs I have in the future.

Never thought I'd be one of those people setting my alarm to wake up at the crack of dawn, but when you discover/develop a serious thirst for physical and mental improvement, the tendency is to push it as far as you can (insert Hunter S. Thompson reference). There's something to be said about having the early morning all to yourself; It's meditative. Hopefully in the way of a fresh start. New day brings new possibilities. Am I sounding too "New-Agey?" I promise I'm going somewhere with this. Fast forward to one of those early mornings in my new apartment. I was gearing up to go for my usual 3-mile run when I spontaneously decided to check out the West Hollywood Equinox. I know, I know it's membership is crazy expensive and most of us can't quite justify dishing that much cash once a month but when you're driven by a goal, I promise you it's a small price to pay. I get there and go through the membership signing-up process and instantly hit the floor for about 20 minutes of stretching. I'm already quite energetic and proceed to 45 minutes of High Intensity Intervals. You can already guess that I'm quite dead by the end of it. However, a wave of endorphins by this point has invaded my body. Off to a good start! On my way out, I'm checking out the wall of personal trainers, no reason really other than that I'm genuinely interested in their dedication to fitness and personal training. Sameem Rouhani one of the personal trainers, a real solid guy; friendly and not too overbearing, which you can encounter at gyms of this caliber. We strike up a convo. I tell him I'm new and we schedule my free personal training session for the very next day. We start with some body composition tests and talk about goals. I tell him I know very little about fitness and that I've always wanted to learn how to work out properly. "That's what I'm here for. Trust me," he says, and so we begin. I didn't know it then but he'd also become a friend. His energy was contagious. He explained how each muscle in the body moves, what it does and what we need to fuel it all. His background in physiology, yes he has one, truly elevates his skills for personal training along with his healthy obsession for nutrition and overall health. It's been about 3 months now and I already feel like a different person -- and we're only just getting started. Honestly, the physical part is only a portion of it. What it's done for me mentally is quite fascinating. He curated a plan that's both exciting and challenging while educating at the same time. He'd follow up with me on my days off to see how I was doing, and offer earnest advice. The guy is truly one of a kind and I always look forward to our training 3-to-4 times a week bright and early in the morning!

Our experience with Nancy and Mediterrania Catering was wonderful. Nancy is a very genuine, friendly, warm person who definitely has the amazing talent of making healthy Mediterranean foods taste delicious! We appreciated her friendly enthusiasm and amazingly tasty dishes. We highly recommend her for your event or family meals as a personal chef. She is truly high-calibre and a quality lady.

Stephanie cooked for a bachelorette party of 13 girls. She worked with me prior to ensure the menu included all of the bride's favorite foods and accounted for allergies and dietary restrictions. She was on time, fun to hang with while cooking and most importantly her food was delicious!

    We have been fortunate to have experienced Chef Courtney's cuisine on many occasions, both small and large groups. Always delicious, she never disappoints. Besides being an excellent cook, she is extremely creative which is what we think makes her so special. Will be booking her for our annual holiday party.

    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.
