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.

I have been searching for someone i could trust who could make my daughters unicorn cake for her first birthday (im a very picky person). I was going to do a little photoshoot of my daughter smashing the cake. Im so happy i found Millie she went above and beyond to make sure she knew exactly want i wanted on the cake. It was all a last minute thing and im happy she was able to make it for me, she delivered the cake to me and the minute i saw the cake i knew i finally found someone who can make all my future cakes and pastries. I already booked her again for my daughters birthday party this coming Saturday. Thank you Millie and her assistant !!

Jennifer was a consummate professional. She arrived on time each day with a smile and ready to teach 3 wonderfully spirited young girls. She had patience and showed kindness to the girls and taught them how to bake very difficult pastries and a cake that you would find in a professional bake shop or patisserie. We were very pleased and would use Jennifer again.

I worked with Chef Francoise Brana in Croatia on a 45m Motor Yacht for a good part of the summer season. When she arrived, I was very pleased to see offhand that she was going to be a pleasure to work with. She was friendly, open and conducted herself in a very pleasant and professional way. Being the Chief Stewardess, it is so important to have a close working relationship with the chef and since I have worked with many that have not so agreeable, I really appreciated everything about Chef Brana as I got to know her over the season. She is kind and caring and always made sure each crew member was happy with the food they were presented with. We had a number of different nationalities on board and a few with dietary specifications - a vegetarian, a crew member with a sensitive stomach, myself with wheat, gluten and diary sensitivities and then the others with their own likes and dislikes and ways of eating. Chef Brana always made sure each person had something that they could eat and enjoy and have enough energy to perform the daily tasks at hand. I am predominantly a vegetarian and really appreciated the delicious, nutritious, creative and healthy vegetarian food prepared by Chef Brana on a daily basis. The meat eaters would happily eat their selection dishes and could not wait to climb into her vegetarian selection as well since it was such good food and complimented the meat perfectly. She uses her knowledge of health and the importance of good nutrition and a balanced diet to create meals for those who do not eat meat, enabling them to have the same energy levels and infact an even healthier life style. She is an absolute pleasure to be around, always made me smile and laugh and I would highly recommend her first and foremost as a highly capable chef and secondly a wonderful person and employee/co-worker. Please feel free to contact me should you have any further questions. Kind regards, Tatyana Silberman

Kevie is a gifted pastry chef whose modern desserts showcase her unique experience. She prepared a beautiful dessert bar table for a large event of 600+ people that our company was sponsoring. The treats were delicious and nutritious baked using our Sugar 2.0 product which includes soluble fiber and probiotics (www.sugar2pt0.com). Her recipes are incredible, and you will be pleased with her sweet treats for your friends and family. She is a professional and fun to work with too. I highly recommend her and am impressed with her baking techniques and capacity to foresee the outcomes! Thank you so much Kevies Kitchen! Everyone loved your yummy treats, you made our event a huge success!

I've been to several events where Gerald was the main chef that catered and executed the event. His work is meticulous in the kitchen, and his food is excellent. His pastries are incredible and he even makes vegetarian dishes! Every encounter I've had with him has been great. The food is always made to perfection.

I highly recommend Chef Renee and the Luscious Bites team for all your catering needs. We recently had our Annual Corporate Sales Meeting and had multiple Sales Reps visiting California for the week. After weeks of planning and setting up a few evening events to entertain our Reps, we found out 5 days before one of the events that the original plan was no longer going to work. In a last-minute mad dash to throw together a themed dinner party we asked around for recommendations and the moment I spoke with Jessica and received the menu I knew I found the right company. Best decision we made was to hire them. Chef Renee and her team made everything so streamlined and simple on our end. We literally picked the food and they handled everything else. From set up to break down to clean up, we did NOTHING!!! Which was a nice change since we usually do EVERYTHING. Not only did they accommodate us with regards to our time sensitive needs, They also were great at helping us choose the best menu to fit our Polynesian theme. Their pricing was more than reasonable esp. for all she and her team did to provide such a great atmosphere with such great food. AND THE FOOD IS GREAT, phenomenal is even a better word to describe the choices for our dinner party. We took all the reps to the Cayman Islands one year for this meeting and can you believe I got more compliments and rave reviews about our Laguna Beach event then I did about being on an ISLAND. It is all attributed to Chef Renee's food and her team's service. All in all, the event went off without a hitch. Thanks so much again to Chef Renee and her team. You will NOT be disappointed and no need to keep searching. Just book them for your event today.... you hit the jackpot!!

We hired Brian to cook for a group of 22 for our friends 30th B'day party. Leading up to the event, communication was fantastic - Brian was responsive, communicative, and flexible with regard to logistics, menu selection, etc. He was happy to accommodate our requests, but able to offer informed, thoughtful recommendations in areas where we deferred to him, which we really appreciated since this was our first time hiring a chef for an event. During the party Brian and his assistant were efficient and competent - everything ran ahead-of-schedule, and the food was fantastic! All our guests have asked for his card to hire him for their special events, and we look forward to having Brian cook for us again!

I am a professional baker. I started baking when I was a child and I came from a family of pastry chefs. I have always known that this was my choice of profession. I believe that people can taste the love in food when someone who cooks it genuinely loves what he/she does. I have graduated from Le Cordon Bleu and have been part of such events like Golden Foodie Awards, Taste of Newport, Taste of Laguna and Make a Wish Foundation to name a few. I do custom cupcakes and desserts. I enjoy making that special event for you; the one that you will remember. Let us start making memories today!
