Personal Chef

We hired Chef Tim for a Bachelorette Party in Palm Springs and truly, with out a doubt, it was the best night of the whole weekend. He showed up and went straight to cooking while continued enjoying our afternoon. He prepared more food than us 7 girls were able to eat and it was absolutely delicious. He's extremely personable, made the night so much fun, and even gave the bride a beautiful toast to her weekend. He made the weekend memorable and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to hire a personal chef!

I didn’t actually get to work with Chef Tim as the group wanted to go in a different direction but my interaction with Chef Tim was wonderful. He reached out to me very quickly even when I thought he was not available for the date we were looking for. I am bummed I couldn’t try his food this time but know in the future I’ll be looking to book Chef Time.

We had such a great time working with Timothy and Chef Kat! We ended up playing board games throughout our dinner and Kat adapted and served the dinner buffet style for us. This was perfect and much appreciated because we could take our respective portions as well. Of course the food was delicious and way more than we expected! Choosing our menu was easy and Timothy was accommodating for our one vegan family member! Thanks again Chef Tim and Kat!

Chef Tim and his team are a pleasure to work with. He checked all our needs and wants when it comes to catering our wedding! He is very adaptable, professional and his menu has good choices! His food is really good and all our guests were pleased on the presentation and taste. I highly recommend getting him as your caterer on your upcoming events! It will not disappoint you! I will definitely add photos once I get our professional photos done.

Chef Tim was super communicative and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend him off his professionalism alone! If you need private chef services that give you bang for your buck, this is your guy.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Generally, pricing takes into account the number of guests, the amount of food required, all supplies and serve ware (should any be required), and any additional staff needed for the event.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Since I provide a full range of private chef services, from individual in-home parties to daily meals, taking the time to talk with the customer to fully understand their specific wants, needs, and dietary preferences and restrictions is vital. Then a custom menu is presented that both meet those needs and, hopefully, offers something new as well.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have spent over 25 years in professional kitchens throughout the San Francisco Bay area and cut my teeth the old fashioned way. My start was as a dishwasher working at a small restaurant. From there I was a prep cook, line cook, Sous Chef, Executive Sous Chef, and finally Executive Chef. I have experience in multiple food styles and cuisines.
