Chef Chet Chase was to put it in one word - Awesome!! He worked with us with the menu options. He was very accommodating of our requests. He communicated daily as the event approached via email the number of guests, their food hangups and allergies. On the day of the event he was there 2 hours ahead, completely prepared and the quality and quantity of the food served, the service and professionalism with which it was done was bar none the best. Finally, his billing is clear, and payment easy. He even gave a discount for additional guests!!

Personal Chef

Chet was great to work with. Extremely responsive; communication was easy. We brainstormed on the menu with many suggestions from Chet as to foods that would go well together and also be gluten free. He delivered everything, as we had requested, rather than cook in my kitchen, to honor our concerns with regard to safety with Covid still an issue for us all. Everything was fresh and delicious with special mention for his savory cheesecake and lamb meatball appetizers....wow...these were next level delicious and everyone one of us chose these as our favorite dishes. There were 4 courses and all was beautifully prepared and presented. Chet also thought of every detail of what would travel well, keep well, easy for me to serve, and did the research to ensure that my celiac guest would have no issues with hidden gluten. Thank you, Chet, for doing such a great job!

Personal Chef

I really enjoyed working with Chet, and would definitely hire him again. When planning for the event, he was quick to respond and made great recommendations based on my needs and tight budget. On the day of, he and his assistant were very professional and efficient, and stayed to make sure everything was cleaned up. They even plated and passed around a separate dessert I had bought. Most importantly, the food was absolutely delicious!

Personal Chef

I want to acknowledge that I know that this review is long and may be all over the place due to my excitement to be writing it, but please take the time to read it. My experience with Chef Chet started weeks before I ever tasted his food. It started with the initial contact. Chet was responsive, clear, and thorough without being nit-picky about every little detail all at once. He was fluid up to the last 48 hours which I appreciated in our case. We used Chef Chet’s personal chef services when we visited the San Francisco area recently. We wanted to be pampered and having a chef was part of it. Chet offered amazing menu items but we kept our selections very homey. Little did we know that even “homey” type of selections would come with a twist of ingredients that made you dance in your chair and wiggle with each bite. Chet serviced us for for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. He made himself available the entire 4 days to care for every single one of our needs as it related to our meals. On top of that the food was just incredibly, tantalizingly delicious. He entertained our palates with flavors we haven’t experienced yet. For instance, his Eggs Benedict was the best I have ever had in my life! The bacon and sausage was so flavorful and perfectly cooked! He made homemade lemon/ricotta/poppy seed cookies for us that melted in our mouths, his chocolate cake was divine. We had a mix of Southern California and Deep South barbecue dinner one of the nights and his potato salad and baked beans were out of this world! Our first night included a drop off meal of lasagna and salad since we got in late. I was expecting something that was just alright but this darn lasagna and salad were crazy delicious! The portions were also generous. Chet gave us full blown table service which was not required but he did it whenever it seemed appropriate, such as if we were all engaged in belly laughing joyful conversation at the dining table, and interrupting us to tell us that the food was ready would interrupt our flow. This is a Chef who enjoys his craft and it shows in his food and how he treats his clients. Will I use Chef Chet again? A resounding YES! I would fly this man out in a heartbeat to service my needs. He is a class act and at the end of your event you’ll feel like family. P.S. So sorry that I don’t have photos of the food. I was thoroughly relaxing and gobbling up the food as fast as he put it down over those 4 days.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Each client and each event are unique and our pricing is based on the type of menu items you are interested in, the number of guests, and your service service requirements. We're happy to offer services "a la carte" and provide you with as many or as few services as you like ranging from simple drop off catering to full service with florals, rental furniture and linens, tableware, glassware and barware. We're always happy to customize a proposal to meet your budget whenever possible.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We discuss their event by email or telephone, their preferred tastes and foods, the budget, review the venue (location), and I develop a menu tailored to the client. Once we establish that we are on the same page I sometimes like to meet with my client and take a look at the location so that I am best prepared to service the event, but it isn't always necessary.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Associates Degree in Culinary Arts from Le Cordon Bleu. Bachelors Degree in Hospitality Management from Le Cordon Bleu. Certified Culinarian by the American Culinary Federation. Certifications from the National Restaurant Association. Experience in Milan, Italy; Savannah, GA, New York City; Miami, FL; and the San Francisco Bay Area.
