Introduction: Having 30 years experience with food, people and private homes, I possess a level of maturity, stability and work ethic that is exceptional. My appearance and punctuality is unfailingly professional. My kitchen skills draw upon inspiration from around the world, as well as classic comfort foods from Europe and the Americas. My appreciation of global cuisines have informed my views on sustainability and the path from farmer to market with an emphasis on regional and seasonal preparations. Rather than rest on the merits of my extensive track record, I continue to learn and expand my knowledge and skills from languages to electronic applications and managing modern homes. Most importantly I have maintained a history of trustworthiness, consistency and dedication to my clients. I have a complete CV of my experience, letters of recommendation and references.

Wow! Chef William catered our birthday dinner out in Palm Desert and he was amazing! Not only was his food top quality, creative, delicious and prepared thoughtfully, his service and service and attention to detail was top notch. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the cuisine he was cooking and gave us fantastic background historical information as he served the tasty bites! His appetizers were scrumptious and his paella was beyond spectacular. We also highly enjoyed his chocolate cake. His server/helper Shane (?) was also very attentive and professional. They both cleaned up the work area afterwards and left the kitchen spotless. We were all very impressed and had a super experience! We highly recommend Chef William for your private chef/catering needs! We would 100% hire him again! Thank you Chef William!

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.

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!
