Mr. Alexson has been our chef for small dinner parties and large 100+ events. In both cases he has been amazing, professional and provided stellar menus and service. I highly recommend him for any venue

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.

Jose is a phenomenal chef and caterer. He's the first person I got to for any of my event needs. He catered my birthday surprise party and my wife's birthday party. Jose is incredibly resourceful, full of ideas and always finds a way to go above and beyond. Food is always great, very competitive on pricing and always very flexible and service oriented for your needs. He's definitely my go to guy for any culinary needs I have.

Oh my gosh! Don't know where to start. Chef Lilian was phenomenal as a chef as a organizer. Together with assistant Nunu is a team that make any celebration perfect. The 18 guests at the sitdown plated dinner raved of the food and presentation. For me as the hostess of my husband's surprise birthday party, I never felt more supported in presenting an elegant evening to friends and family. I would be happy to be contacted directly if you are considering Chef Lilian for your event.

Everything was fresh, flavorful and delicious. Great value, great experience. Chef William came prepared and did not expect anything from us. He figured out his way around the kitchen and catered to our every need. He designed a brunch that was pleasing to the eye as well as to everyone's varied palate. Very professional and prepared. Will definitely book again in the future to try his Spanish style dinner menu. Thank you for making our Bachelorette's dream of having a private chef cook for her come true, and even exceeding expectations.

enjoyed a nice Sunday Private Culinary experience with Chef Mumsey and her team! The dinner was absolutely exquisite and uniquely made. One of the sides was corn on the cob grilled with a special season, I honestly didn’t expect to enjoy it, however I was blown away at the taste!! The meal prep was created in a timely and organized fashion and I even assisted! If you’re looking for an eloquent fine homemade dining experience contact Chef Mumsey! You will not be disappointed yet amazed and delighted!!!

Jordan is an excellent chef and caterer. He produces food that is way beyond the standard catering services. If you want cookie cutter catering go with someone else. If you want really great food at a great price stop on by or use his catering.

I am beyond grateful to Thumbtack for connecting me to Chef Keith Prante and his team at Hautè Productions Events and Catering to cater my mom's 80th birthday celebration. They are absolutely A-MAZING! Chef Prante was one of two chefs who responded to my request via Thumbtack, and I also received a personal referral. Neither of the other caterers offered ANYWHERE NEAR the quality, selections, variety and value that Hautè offered at my price point. We had our tasting today, and it absolutely sealed the deal! Everything was delicious and the presentation was outstanding. I highly recommend Hautè Productions to any potential customer who appreciates excellence, accommodation and genuine customer service.

I am a mother of three children and I hired Chris to be our family's private chef. She also was the chef for our occasional dinner parties chef as well as coordinated them for the last two years. We absolutely enjoyed her cooking and loved her easy going nature. Our family will miss Chris profusely as we are moving to Austin.

Awesome experience from start to finish. Almost more than the amazing food, we loved having Joan in our house. We instantly hit it off and our kids loved her as well. Joan and I planned a menu for an informal dinner party for my wife's birthday that consisted of salad, bolognese, and a deconstructed cannoli...all made from scratch in our kitchen. The food was absolutely delicious and her company was delightful. Next time we have a need for a personal chef, we will go straight to Joan!

Stephani did a wonderful job. We all enjoyed the tea party set up & the foods she prepared! I hosted the party; another person paid for it, so I cannot answer to Value, however, my guess is it was very good, as that person told me she & her sister, Staci were GREAT to work with! Linda H

Amanda was awesome! I surprised my parents over the holidays with a Surf & Turf Dinner and Amanda delivered a first class meal. From the appetizers all the way through to one of the best Crème Brulee desserts I've had...the food was excellent. In addition to the quality of the food, Amanda was very responsive and attentive to every need and request. I will be using her services again and would highly recommend her to anyone that needs a private chef in and around the Palm Springs/Palm Desert area.

In my mind, I create the most idyllic, renewing, peaceful, joyous silk painting retreat...ever known to humanity. Then I close my eyes, put my dream into a pink bubble and let it go. Voila..my dream comes back to me ...only better than I could ever have created myself, because now it includes a Gourmet Chef named Gigi Cohen. Home-Sweet-Home Cooking served three lovely, sumptuous meals at 8 am..... noon and 6 pm every day...promptly. My room was near the kitchen, so I did get to watch she and Glen (assistant) prepare the meals together. Gigi and Glen were very orderly and methodical and they worked in peaceful harmony together, in prep, serving and cleanup. I have a few other dreams in a few other bubbles...floating around out there...and NOW they do include GiGi Cohen and "Home-Sweet-Home Cooking" Thanks Gigi and Glen, from Suzanne Knight and the San Diego Silk Guild

Sharon cooks with passion and flavor. Her presentations always wowed us. Whether a simple meal or a quite extravagant one, her diversity in presenting dishes from other cultures was delightful. We wouldn’t hesitate to hire her again and plan to do so soon. Stellar chef!!!

Jory came to our home to prepare a dinner for 10 guests. Our house staff was delighted by his ability to keep the kitchen clean while preparing for service. Since I run a food service company myself, this alone is laudable and the sign of a true chef. He prepared hor d'oeuvres, appetizers, three entreés, and served the crepe cake we brought in from Lady M Bakery. Afterwards, he offered coffee service while service wound down. The quality of the food was superb on all counts, and many of our guests asked for seconds and still left their plates empty. Mediterranean dishes of fennel branzino, victorian lamb, and gardenherbed lemon chicken were the highlights of the night. During service, our guests were shocked to see the double doors be drawn open and to find a spotless kitchen in between each course. Our guests are very well-to-do in the fashion industry. Jory is young and very well rounded personally—service was socially and culinarily seamless. He was even welcoming when our guests pillaged the leftovers in the kitchen throughout the night. My wife and I will book him to cook parties in the future and you should too.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
