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 !!

Highly recommend!! I had Chantel do desserts for my sister's baby shower and she did an incredible job. Not only were the cookies, cake cops and cupcakes beautiful they also tasted amazing. She delivered the treats to my door giving me one less thing to think about on the day of the party. Will use again. Thanks Chantel and Bella :)

Ashley made the cake for my wedding - a tall task for some, but not for her. To say she knocked it out of the park would be an understatement. First of all the cake - this thing was the simplest, elegant, and most beautiful piece of work in pastry form that I've ever seen and tasted. Ashley's passion for her craft really shines through in her work (see the picture). And second of all the professionalism - Ashley is one bad-@$$ pastry chef, and she is an absolute joy to work with. Super responsive, super helpful, super sweet, super down-to-earth. I can't recommend Ashley enough. 6 stars!

    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.

    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.

    Amazing !!! After looking for the right personal chef I came across Maya from Wooden Spoon Catering and I must say thank goodness I hired her. Food is amazing! Every Monday and Wednesday nights she comes to cook, always making new and exciting dishes with tons of flavor. I would recommend wooden spoon catering to everyone looking for a great chef!

      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
