Kevin was nothing short of amazing! From the day that I reached out to the time he was on his way to our Airbnb, Kevin was in communication with other me! When he arrived, him and his crew immediately set up. He arrived an hour and a half earlier for set up and was ready to go. With so much time still left over before our agreed upon time, Kevin was still willing to wait till that time, but asked our permission to start early. Not to rush but to let us know he was prepared and we were able to start eating! When I say everything he put on the table was amazing, that is an understatement! I had wine at the house and although I was the one drinking wine, he made sure to keep filling my glass as the night went on. It wasn’t just a chef coming to cook for us, it really was a whole experience! We were so sad we didn’t book him for both nights! We are not from the area, but we definitely plan on returning, and plan on having Kevin and his team again!

Selecting Heritage Catering & Culinary Services for our wedding at Temecula Creek Cottages was the best decision we made. After speaking with Kevin, we honestly looked no further. We made our selection, as Kevin really made and drove the opportunity for us and opened the communication which made it very easy for us to decide on our menu choices. Even more, his honest approach and straight-forwardness was perfect. Kevin made our decisions in every aspect very simple, and the outcome was more than we could ever have expected. Every guest has told us how delicious the food was from the appetizers to the main course. The staff members in support on the day of our event were an extension of Kevin's professionalism as they made sure that my wife and I were taken care of throughout the evening. Our wedding guests and family's direct feedback, "Overall DELICIOUS and extremely PROFESSIONAL!! To this day we continue to receive nothing but positive compliments about the Chef and his staff. We highly recommend Heritage Catering & Culinary Services for any event you chose to host. You will not be disappointed!

Details: Wedding • Cocktail hour or hors d'oeuvres • Dinner • American - formal • Buffet • Yes, full service • Outdoor venue • No kitchen • 60 - 69 guests • I'm flexible

We sought the service of Heritage Catering to prepare dinner (for my wife's birthday) for 6 adults and five children. The service consisted of three individuals (Chef, helper, and server). They arrived on time and brought all the food supplies with them. They spend about three hours preparing the food and setting up the table. After dinner, they cleaned the kitchen and left it spotless. The dinner was outstanding. The steak was the best I ever had and the salad and dessert were equally tasty. Glad I chose them for the occasion. I highly recommend them.

Details: Birthday or anniversary party • Dinner • Italian • Mexican or Latin American • Buffet • Yes, full service • Home • Yes, full kitchen • Fewer than 20 guests • Premium (high end ingredients)

Harrison and Marcus with heritage cooking provided an amazing private chef experience at our Airbnb for our friend's bachelorette trip. At the end of the weekend we all agreed that out of everything we did throughout the trip, having this private chef experience was the best part of the whole weekend. Seriously. The best meal I've ever eaten! The two were SO sweet and fun and just overall gave us such a great experience. They went above and beyond and left the kitchen spotless. At the end, they packaged up all of the leftovers for us to enjoy through the rest of the weekend. Such a great deal and experience. Lastly, Chef Kevin is very communicative and was super easy to work with in terms of booking and providing a phenomenal menu proposal. He was happy to work with us to alter it if we wanted to, but that was not necessary as it looked fantastic (and it was!) Would definitely recommend to anyone searching for something like this. Really wish we had taken more photos of all of each course but trust me it was all so beautiful and sooo insanely delicious.
