Oh my. There are not enough stars for how perfect this private chef dinner was. From the first contact chef Boris and Carolina were so very attentive and lightening fast responders. Carolina is the most organized and sets your mind at ease that no detail will be forgotten or left out. I never worried they would execute our requests to perfection. She's is calming and a can do yes person. Pricing is beyond fair. The food was beautiful. The presentation was contemporary and current. The taste was spot on and no one left a bite on a plate. 10 star flavors and service. Left the place spotless. I have not one thing I would edit. It is so nice knowing before the event even begins you are in good hands. The attention Carolina gives sets all your worries free so chef Boris can come in and just hit it out of the park while you and guests sip cocktails.

Highly recommend!! I had Chantel do desserts for my sister's baby shower and she did an incredible job. Not only were the cookies, cake cops and cupcakes beautiful they also tasted amazing. She delivered the treats to my door giving me one less thing to think about on the day of the party. Will use again. Thanks Chantel and Bella :)

My company was having a corporate luncheon and I was totally impressed with Laura's professionalism and her food. The food was fantastic and could not stop raving over her braised pork. Laura is very creative with her food selections and the whole luncheon was a hit! Laura was very flexible as I had to move the lunch an hour later and she was extremely nice about it and was very punctual. That is a trait of a true professional chef. We know who we will hire for our next catering experience.

The Brunette Gourmette is amazing! Elizabeth and Co. truly delivered above and beyond! She's a great chef, very creative, reliable and fun. Food for our daughter's graduation party couldn't have been better -- rave reviews from everyone. I will definitely go back for more of her wonderful catering. If you want a wonderful party, dinner party or event, don't hesitate to contact the Brunette Gourmette -- you will not be disappointed.

    Aurelie is a wonderful, inventive, experienced chef. She has great menu suggestions, and all our menus have been delicious. She leaves the kitchen cleaner than when she arrives, and we recommend her with the highest compliments.

    I don't know how I'm going to do Brian's AMAZING cheesecake justice by only words, haha!! Yes, it is THAT amazing!! I'm cheesecake addict, most I've had are good; but Brian's cheesecake will make you want to chew extremely slow and savor EVERY morsel--never have I taken so long to eat just ONE slice!! 😮 THAT is how I know it is incredibly amazing!! I always want to introduce ppl to it because when you come across a piece of heaven, you want others to feel that same happiness, light, and joy. Can't believe I just described cheesecake that way... this is what happens when you have a slice of Brian's cheesecake 🤤

      Cooking for others is something I love doing. The reward is when people enjoy the food that I make, so I also offer my services as a personal chef. I know that sometimes people tend to get busy, and there is no time for a nice home-cooked meal.

      Hello, ladies and gentlemen. I would like to introduce myself, I am Chef Mark. My culinary background is over 10 years of experience including being a banquet chef at The Ritz Carlton in Laguna Beach, CA. Even though my background does come from higher-end cooking, I do not shy away from simple causal cooking. I love to cook and cater to all different events such as, birthdays, weddings, special events, graduations, cocktail parties, pool parties and many more. My goal is to not only deliver you with an ultra-flavorful taste from the food but also to give you a memorable experience that you may look back throughout the years. There is no such thing as too big of an event nor there is too small of one either. I do also have professional helpers if needed to assist me. The way it works is I will draft a menu up for you based on the dishes or theme you may want. Then on the event day, I will come on over to the location either with the food prepped and ready to go or start prepping there to give you more of the authentic surrounding whatever you may choose. Then, I will plate the dishes and serve or if buffet style set up individual dishes to be eaten at will. Then, after that I will clean the location and leave it cleaner than when I arrived to make sure on your end your job is to only enjoy your time with your guests and the experience. So, where do we go from here? Just simply call me, and I will gladly greet you and start planning your most enjoyable event also on getting a menu setup in addition to a quote on the event. If there was any service not mention on this ad, please still call or email me. I would gladly try to accommodate you. To my future client, I wish you have a pleasant day. Chef Mark

        My wife and I interested in a personal chef service on a weekly basis. Our schedules make it very difficult to prepare healthy meals for dinner and we often turn to quicker and unhealthier options. Do you offer a service where you can prepare multiple meals in advance that can be reheated for a quick, health y alternative? If so, what are your rates? Who is responsible for the shopping? Looking forward to hearing back from you. - Ben
