Mr. Alexson has been our chef for small dinner parties and large 100+ events. In both cases he has been amazing, professional and provided stellar menus and service. I highly recommend him for any venue

Jose is a phenomenal chef and caterer. He's the first person I got to for any of my event needs. He catered my birthday surprise party and my wife's birthday party. Jose is incredibly resourceful, full of ideas and always finds a way to go above and beyond. Food is always great, very competitive on pricing and always very flexible and service oriented for your needs. He's definitely my go to guy for any culinary needs I have.

Everything was fresh, flavorful and delicious. Great value, great experience. Chef William came prepared and did not expect anything from us. He figured out his way around the kitchen and catered to our every need. He designed a brunch that was pleasing to the eye as well as to everyone's varied palate. Very professional and prepared. Will definitely book again in the future to try his Spanish style dinner menu. Thank you for making our Bachelorette's dream of having a private chef cook for her come true, and even exceeding expectations.

HI all, My wife and I hired Jessica as our wedding coordinator for our 4 day wedding in February of 2017 in the La Quinta area. We live in Los Angeles, so we were looking for a pro who know the area well, and could help us with the planning, local vendor recommendations, supplies, etc. I can tell you this much, we were lucky to have found her. She is very proactive, straightforward, quick thinking, fast acting, and is moving a mile a minute. She hooked us up with her own professional bar, wait staff and chefs she has acquired relationships with over years of working events. She gave us recommendations on who to use for flowers, ice, booze, etc. She met us a few times on and off site to game plan for our multiple days of events, and made sure things ran smoothly throughout. We had negotiated fees, wages, timeframes all in advance, and by the time the weekend was over, everything was as it should have been and checked out. No funny business or discrepancies. Overall, she is just the sweetest lady, who wants to provide a great experience, so you don't have to worry about this and that. She's on it, is one sharp person, and very resourceful. I would highly recommend you give her a call for any size event, as she can handle both intimate and large scale. Thx so much for helping our wedding weekend to be so great and memorable!

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.

she was very professional with the way she executed everything. She added so many flavors you wouldn't pair with your basic foods but it's definitely okay!! I would definitely eat her cooking again

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!
