Introduction: Please check out our website to find out more about what we do! You can also send an inquiry via our website for a prompt response. Hospitality is what we were born to do. Karen and Will both come from families in the restaurant business. We decided to continue on this path since teenagers because its truly what we love to do. Together we launched our business in 2020, when we decided we wanted to bring the restaurant experience in the comfort of our guest's home. Our focus is on quality ingredients and we support local businesses while doing so. We want to make your dinner a memorable experience by designing a beautiful menu and setting the ambiance. We want to work together with you to create the perfect evening.

Karen and Will provided the most amazing at-home culinary experience! They brought everything into our airbnb, including beautiful table decor, and custom menus. They were able to accommodate our group with less than one week of planning! Not only that, but we added 2 more people to the headcount just a few hours before, and they magically made it happen! The cocktails that Karen made were so unique and delicious, and the food by Chef Will was incredible. They did a wonderful job with service, and the kitchen was spotless when they left! Everything from the evening was absolutely perfect. It was a special night that our group will always remember. I would recommend Chef and The Host to anyone in Southern California!
