Wedding and Event Catering
Chef William responded very quickly to my catering request; a birthday dinner party for 10. We were all traveling in from the east coast, renting a house in Palm Springs for the week. We spoke on the phone where he put together a 4-course menu, while being respectful of my budget. He was also accommodating of the food requirements /allergies of our guests. The overall process went very smoothly. Day of the event, Chef William arrived right on time (if not a few minutes early.) He arrived solo, completely prepared with all of his equipment and food, and took over the kitchen with ease. All we had to do was sit, and enjoy the evening and his amazing food! Chef William prepared and served each course, explaining what each plate included. He really provided an amazing, personal experience right at our home. The feedback from all our guests was great; everyone loved the food and were quite satiated. And once the dinner was complete, Chef William packed everything up, leaving the kitchen as clean as when he arrived; nothing left for us to do. I would highly recommend Chef William to anyone planning a similar event.Feb 24, 2017VerifiedChef William Bloomhuff/Private Chef's reply
Chef William was incredibly professional from the first phone call until that last hand shake good bye. He made himself available by phone, email or text at all hours of the day to facilitate the event planning at a time that was convenient for me. He was upbeat and enthusiastic about the event- open to suggestions, offering solutions, and always service oriented. He went over and beyond what I would have expected a chef to do all in an effort to make the event run smoothly and take some of the pressure off of me. That kind of blew me away. And the food was exceptional. I mean, really, really good and that sentiment was shared among all my guests. And probably most surprising is that this first class service and exceptional food preparation came at an extremely reasonable price. Ive hired many personal chefs for events over the years (and, in fact, used to own an event company) and I can say that Chef William is among the best. - M. Moynihan.

Chef William provided a dinner that fitted with our brief and surpassed our expectations. His dishes were inventive, flavoursome and close to the old world Mediterranean we were hoping for. Highly recommended!Feb 19, 2020Verified
Our experience with Chef William was outstanding. He prepared a fabulous meal two of the evenings we were in town. From preparation to clean up, everything was professionally executed and so delicious! We will be calling him again when we return to Palm Springs next year!Feb 14, 2020Verified
