William and his staff made my 50th birthday party one I will never forget!!! William is a true professional, He helped my husband plan an amazing menu for 16 guest, created incredible appetizers and the dessert was to die for. We rented a house in Palm Desert for the weekend for 14 friends, William arrived at the house 2 days before the dinner party so he could inventory the kitchen and see how his layout was going to be. He & his staff arrived 3 hours before the start of the party to set up and decorate. Everything was perfect, from the food to the guitarist. I was extremely impressed by William and his staff and I would definitely use him again for future events.

Awesome is the perfect word to describe events by Jessica! I had to back-to-back parties in early December that couldn't have been more perfectly executed. Jessica thought of absolutely everything to make each party a success. From the caterers...to the bartender...to the waitstaff that she hired, all were perfectly informed, professional and fantastic at their jobs. The food was amazing, the staff was prompt and polite. Both parties could not have been any better! The first person I will call before planning my next event will be Jessica! She's AWESOME!

From the minute I found Jeff Kaufman, I knew I had a planning partner for my wedding weekend, which we wanted to be a never-ending party. Jeff consulted with us on every detail from finding the venue and handling rentals and staffing, to creating menus for a rehearsal dinner, cocktail party, and reception (complete with happy hour, three-course meal and dessert bar), as well as a farewell brunch (in the rain!). Jeff was attentive, resourceful and realistic, saving us money where he could while feeding 175 people for three days. The food was fresh, the meat was grilled and served a la minute, and our guests raved about every bite. Jeff gave us no surprises when it came to costs and while we went over our planned budget, the outcome was well worth it. Jeff was much more than a caterer, he was a guide and a calming force throughout the experience. It was a magical winter wedding in the desert that we'll never forget.

Chef Julian prepared our anniversary dinner at a home we rented in Palm Springs. It was BEYOND AMAZING! He was so great in planning our special meal and easy to work with. We were able to stay by the pool and enjoy without worrying about a thing! Appetizers, salad, main course and dessert were just perfect. He was so organized, set our table, helped with wine pairing and cleaned up everything. Very professional and a great guy! Wish he lived in our state!!! We are still talking about our molten chocolate cake!!!!!

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.

Chef Mark is an amazing chef! He was very professional. I had a small dinner party with friends. I wasn’t sure what I wanted. Since I am on a low carb diet. After speaking with him he created a Menu to fit my diet restrict but also carter to my friends non restricted diet. Appetizer was fried calamari with sweet and sour sauce. The salad was a fresh Ahi Tuna salad. The entree was mouth watering pan seared Scallops with lemongrass carrot ginger purée. Lastly was dessert which I could only have a taste of my friends apple crisp with vanilla ice cream and homemade salted caramel. It was to hard to resist. Chef Mark made fresh berries with he’s own whipping cream!

Isaias planned such a wonderful evening! Not only was the meal outstanding but his explanations of the dishes and the tips that he taught us along the way will be things that I will absolutely be trying in my kitchen. The vodka jalapeno scallop ceviche is still on my mind 3 days later. If you are in the Palm Springs area calling The Main Choice is a must. 5 stars and 2 thumbs away up!
