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.

We hired Jeff and his staff for our wedding weekend. Friday we had a "meet and greet" BBQ and Saturday Jeff provided the food for our buffet style taco bar. We live in San Diego so we were really in the dark about Palm Springs area caterers. The food and the presentation was outstanding. We gave Jeff ideas for what we wanted and he took control and delivered all of it and more. He is a pleasure to work with and makes every effort to ensure the food is excellent and that everything runs smoothly (even when it's not his responsibility). Jeff helped with many components of our weekend, including putting us in touch with a reliable party rental business and culinary artist for the wedding cake. We are eternally grateful for Jeff and the Creating Catering staff for being part of our special weekend.

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!

Jessica and her team are AMAZING! We hosted a holiday event in our home and Jessica, her team Angelica, Koch and Darryl made the evening extraordinary. They came in, took over and allowed us to completely enjoy our guests. They oversaw every detail and nothing was overlooked. Jessica is a great communicator, very client service oriented and shared fantastic recommendations that made the evening flow smoothly. Our house was spotless when the team left. We look forward to working with her on our next event.

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!!!!!


We can make whatever it is you're looking for that tastes great and is worth every penny. You tell us what you need, and we will provide it at a reasonable price!

Isaias and his staff were wonderful. I hired him to cook two dinners and one breakfast for a girls weekend for 10 ladies. His price was extremely reasonable for all the amazing food we received. Filet mignon, salmon, tarts, lava cakes, omelette bar, fresh fruit! Plates were beautiful, vegetables were fresh and tasty. Amazing. He even went shopping for us to stock the fridge with snacks and brought us candles to light our table outside in the evening. He was friendly, professional, efficient, clean, but best of all, my guests raved about the food. I would recommend Isaias in a heartbeat. Hire him! You'll be glad you did.


People enjoy the foods N THE music and the shows as well!
