About this pro
My husband Luis and myself combined have over 25 years of catering and restaurant experience from esteemed companies such as The Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel, The Montage Resort Laguna Beach, Pascals Catering, Cienega Catering, Fox Studios and Universal Studios. We hire great individuals that care about the impressions that our guests are left with, always making the effort to go above and beyond expectations. This experience paired with my upbringing in an organic, vegetarian household has driven my techniques into serving only sustainable seafood, meats free of hormone and antibiotics, organic free range poultry, and a farm to table seasonal approach to all of our produce needs. All of this paired with outstanding service and you will have arrived at Nirvana Grille & Catering. We bring sustainability and contemporary cuisine to the forefront of our seasonal menus. I love that we are involved in a business that imprints in peoples most cherished memories. That the sensory experience of food, no matter the occasion, is shared while choosing us to cater or host an event at, no matter how grand or how intimate, we are here to delight the senses with quality food and exceptional service.

- How did you get started doing this type of work?While growing up, my mother was a vegetarian caterer and working and I would assist in making items to deliver to clients. Through the years with all of us girls cooking everything from scratch, I loved to cook at at 19 I knew that becoming a chef was perfect for me. I ventured into the field and learned ever aspect to be able to run a successful restaurant, catering business and private events company. I wanted to be able to make an impact with the talents I have and this seemed to be the perfect fit for me loving food the way that I do.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?I love what I do. Down to picking ingredients for the next menu to coming into a new clients home, I love the industry inside and out. It is always amazing how each event there is something new we explore or get excited about. A craving that sets up to creating new dishes from a clients favorite ingredient or a color that is incorporated, a children's thyme party done up to the nine. We are ready for all of it with talented staff to walk beside you the whole way through. You do not have to contract out multiple service companies when you come yo us. We can assist you with everything which for me came from peace of mind seeing so many walk away confused or overwhelmed from previous companies I worked with. I want people to be at ease once they have chosen us and to allow us to take the pressure off so that they can truly enjoy their event.
