Celebrated a friend's 30th in Palm Springs and had Chris prepare her birthday dinner with six friends. Chris was so responsive from the beginning, professional, and providing details regarding food, pricing, menu options, etc. It was a great experience regarding logistics, which is always nice. Working with him never felt stressful or like something was going to fall through. Additionally, Chris provided great value for the type of evening and food/quality/ingredients we received. The dinner itself was spectacular. Chris brought plating options and prepared food to then cook and assemble at the house. He was very prepared, clean, personable, and arrived promptly. Great chef to have at the house that made the experience fun and comfortable! We had three great appetizers outside by the pool and he served them to us and explained every dish. The dinner was plated amazing and tasted great. We started with a salad, moved onto udon noodles with shrimp, and finished with short ribs. The dessert was incredible, a bread pudding (which none of the guests are dessert people and it may have been the favorite dish of the night!). It was an interesting dinner and not a boring menu, always nice to have exciting dishes being brought to the table one by one. Kept the kitchen clean from start to finish! Would recommend Chris for any type of catering or private dining party as he checked off all the boxes of a great and relaxing experience! Thank you Chris for helping us celebrate! Will definitely reach out if in the Palm Springs area again!Sep 23, 2020Verified
We had a wonderful experience hiring Chris to prepare an exceptional meal for our group of 7 ladies. We all felt very comfortable and relaxed having Chris in the kitchen. His talents and professionalism made our night! If you have the opportunity to hire this chef do it!Aug 30, 2020Verified
Chef Q showed up right on time was friendly, engaging, always had a smile on his face and put out a good looking spread for our group. Even though our stove was having issues, he made it work and was able to improvise with the grill. He then cleaned the kitchen and left it in better shape than when he got there. We had the Salmon and Garlic Chicken Breast... both of which can get very easily overcooked if not done properly. But what we had was perfectly juicy and moist inside. If you want good food, a friendly chef and quality service I would definitely consider these folks. And the best part was the leftovers, they don't skimp on the portions!Sep 23, 2020Verified
We had Chris cater a celebration dinner in Joshua Tree and it was so delicious! He was super responsive and on top of things leading up to the dinner, came right on time and left our kitchen spotless. His food was incredible - we had a 3 course Mediterranean feast and his epic white chocolate challah dessert. Highly recommend for a seamless private chef experience!Sep 14, 2020Verified
