Introduction: Mise En Place (meez ahn plahs) is a professional kitchen term which means "everything in its place." Chefs need to "have their Mise en place" in order to cook successfully no matter if it's a backyard BBQ or a 6 course meal. We cook for you just like we would for our own families, and love what we do. Our chefs have worked in some of the top restaurants in the country including those below. San Francisco Bay Area The French Laundry • Gary Danko • Akikos Atelier Crenn • Saison • Spruce • Nightbird • Octavia • Kin Khao • Del Popolo • Tosca Cafe Los Angeles: Osteria Mozza • Petit Trois • Trois Mec Bon Temps • The Nomad New York City: Momofuku • Eleven Madison Park • WD50 Other Towns/Cities: -Alinea We primarily use local ingredients from the most well regarded local purveyors, and also source items from anywhere in the world.   NOTE - we have a $1500 minimum for personal chef/catering services. This includes an 18% service charge, tax, phone calls, all food for the event, cooking, cleaning etc.   We look forward to cooking for you! Dan Founder & Chef

Chef Renee did a fantastic job for my wife’s birthday. She made Chinese food for us and it was a hit amongst everyone. I really appreciated that she went out of her way to get halal meat for us. She also took the time to pack the meals for each person after the party. Highly recommend Mise En Place for your next party.

Details: Brunch / dinner party • 6 - 10 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • Asian • Halal • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

We had the brilliant idea of getting a personal chef to prepare a dinner for my sister in law’s birthday but had no idea how to execute on it. Enter Mise En Place....what a great find that was. From start to finish, our experience was outstanding. Starting with our initial consultation with Dan, the owner, who was very accommodating in assisting us with choosing the menu to the day of with Chef Andrew and Victor, who prepared a 5 star dinner for us that was unforgettable. Chef Andrew clearly has a passion for cooking and attention to detail that shows through every dish. The goal of the evening was to make my sister in law feel very special and celebrated for her birthday...and because of the meal prepared by Chef Andrew and Victor, that goal was accomplished. We would highly recommend Mise en Place!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 11 - 20 guests • Dinner • Dessert • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • Cold beverages (non-alcoholic) • Italian • American - formal • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.
