Marc is fantastic! This is the first time i have used a personal chef and can say its the best choice ive made.. I train gym 4-5 times per week and approached mark to make me 6 meals for 6 days of the week all equally portioned with proteins and carbs. The food was delivered fresh every two days and packed in plastic containers. It was even labelled with the nutritional values. The food itself was restaurant quality! I have eaten out at restaurants alot over the years so was little worried about how the quality of the meat would be and how well it would be cooked. Marc uses the freshest ingredients and cooks the products to perfections! I would highly recommend mark wether its a small dinner gathering or something more serious like myself with 36 meals per week! Thanks Marc

I attended a 16 person dinner for which Steven was the private chef. Overall the food was phenomenal. Presentation and flavors were top notch. Additionally, the staff provided was excellent. Great evening overall, in no small part thanks to Steven.

So Devine Catering catered an engagement party for my daughter. I can't say enough how awesome they are. I had never hired a caterer before and was a bit out of my element. Chef Alexa was super cool and kind enough to walk me through the process, meet with me and really did an outstanding job. Chef Alexa and her entire team are just awesome. Everyone at our party was impressed. Just can't say enough great things!

Marcel was amazing! It was a five star experience from the service he offered, to the food he cooked, to the time he took to prep for my event. We had two chefs at my event who were amazed and very impressed with his cooking! I highly recommend him!

I am very pleased to recommend Chef Travis Pena as a personal chef. I've retained Chef Travis for years to create fabulous dinner parties in the privacy of my home. In our initial interview, Chef Travis asked many specific questions and took notes as we discussed the style of food I would like served. He annotated likes and dislikes. Together we have created several personalized menus. Chef Travis delivers restaurant excellence as he both prepares and serves the meal. Chef Travis is always prepared and well organized with a very positive attitude. Working with Chef Travis each time is pleasant and stress free. Every meal is delicious and precisely prepared. I greatly enjoy leftovers the next day! As a Chef, Travis is professional in every aspect. He cleans efficiently while preparing fine cuisine leaving behind a clean kitchen and delicious food. The only traces of Chef Travis are the lovely aromas and stocked refrigerator. I would highly recommend Chef Travis as a private chef. His service and customer service are exceptional. He provides a relaxing experience. Working with Chef Travis has been a wonderful treat. I look forward to our future dinner parties. Sincerely, Samantha Pitts

I was working out with a trainer, and doing cardio at least 6 times a week; I was barely moving the needle on the scale I stood on each day. My trainer was very helpful in helping me realize it was what I was eating each day and not eating enough of the “right” foods. My trainer had suggested I look at a few meal plans. As I was looking at this options I knew if I got the “standard” meal plan delivery from one of the well-known companies, I would end up throwing half of the food away. I then made a conscious effort to explore and search for other options, and I discovered Carmi. I have been very pleased with my results, and I have been utilizing her personal chef services for almost two years! My original plan was to utilize her for six months, as I prepared to be on a web-series reality show. I dropped the weight I needed and I made a choice to continue with her. I love that we design my meals each week, and we change them according to my palate, and what I need to help keep me healthy. I will tell you all of her meals are scrumptious and addictive! I have regular requests each week, as I must have those dishes! She is very dependable, reachable and always ready to work with you. This is a truly one-on-one personal chef design. Take all of those frozen food meals in your freezer and toss them out; as Carmi’s meals are fresh and organic and just plain yummy!

Greg was everything I could have wanted in a personal dining chef! Such a warm personality, professional yet personal, and off the chart food. I could go on and on about the food combinations, the incredible taste, and presentation of a five star meal, made with love. You will not be disappointed with Greg: hands down, a one of a kind experience:))

If there was only an option for 10 stars! Chef Shinar was incredibly responsive (we had a very tight deadline). She gave incredible thought to the menu and handled our event with the utmost professionalism. The food was amazing and our clients were incredibly impressed.

The response was quick and efficient so that part I would give 5 stars. The part that I wish was a little more professional was the presentation of the food. We had to ask the chef to describe his food and we had to set our own table, which in the past when we've had personal chefs that was done for us. The halibut was cooked perfectly and we enjoyed our meal very much. The chef was pleasant and you could tell he "loved" what he is doing which is so important. If we ever come back to Terranea we would use the Catering Carnival again.

The catering staff was amazing and polite. We got one chef, one assistant, one server and one DJ. They arrived on time. Server helped us set up and clean up everything. DJ was great! They did a wonderful job! Price is very reasonable and acceptable. Paid them with extra tips when service is finished. Love the team! Recommend for any events!

Understand my trepidation never having a professional Chef cooking for me in my humble home. I was seconds away from meeting and greeting the highly acclaimed Celebrity Chef, MARK KEARNEY and his AWESOME associate Victoria. I could belabor the OBVIOUS, however, kudos for the preparation, presentation , moreover, QUALITY of the Signature Cocktails, Appetizers, and Dinner OUTSTANDING. Another exceptional highlight of our evening was Chef Mark Kearney himself. So easy to be around, not pretentious, humble, funny, kind and genuinely warm. If you should ever have the opportunity to meet this amazing man and have him prepare OATMEAL you will be impressed

I hired Sierra Madre Catering for my husband's 40th birthday party held at my home. The set up process was so easy, they were so accommodating with the menu I wanted (even though it included fried foods and philly cheese steak sandwiches which are hard to make on-site). The moment they got to my house, Tonya and her chefs were so professional, speedy, on top of it all! They made my night so much easier and fun and I finally got to enjoy my own party for once! They left my house very neat like my kitchen was never used! They picked up after my guests throughout the night. My favorites were inside-out Philly cheese steak, pulled pork sliders, mac & cheese, potstickers and garlic fries. Thank you and looking forward to seeing you again!

I am so grateful for Jamie’s cooking in my home for the last two years. It has been a godsend! Jamie has brought much more ease into our lives, given that cooking from scratch is extremely time consuming. I love having healthy home cooked meals for my family. But I don’t have the energy myself to do this. Jamie is punctual, has a positive and cheerful demeanor, and is accommodating to my schedule if I need to make changes. Jamie is very open to our personal preferences and suggestions when making the meals, and is an easy going person, there’s never any stress in the kitchen. Also, Jamie is always game to try a new, sometimes very time consuming or creative/unusual recipe for us. My deepest thanks for Jamie and her love of cooking and all the ways she helps our family to save our time for things we’d rather be doing and to stay healthy and well fed!
