Introduction: My name is Chef Carlos and I have been a Chef/Executive Chef for over 20 years in San Francisco. I got my start under Michael Mina at Aqua restaurant in the city. I now reside in Tracy and love being able to create a private chef experience or caterings for clients. At Porras Solutions we love organic, fresh products and the quality that California has to offer. Private chef for that special anniversary dinner, birthday dinner/party, private events, cooking lessons, and meal planning for those nights you just don't feel like cooking. Please check us out on Instagram (@porras_solutions), Facebook (Porras Solutions), Twitter (@chefporras), Yelp! I look forward to helping you with your next event and creating some magic. Cheers!

FABULOUS, FABULOUS event with Porras Solutions! the Food was AMAZINGLY delicious - everyone raved about it! The display of the food enhanced the elegance of the event! In addition to the SCRUMPTIOUS catering, we also hired Porras Solutions to handle all of the tables, chairs, linens, centerpieces, plates, glasses, napkins, flatwhere, set up and layout, take down- truly everything to make our event a raging success! Their staff was so professional and did a fabulous job serving, pouring drinks, cutting cake, ensuring that every need was met throughout our wedding event. I appreciated the communication and clear alignment of expectations leading up to the event - Porras Solutions took a huge weight off my shoulders in the planning process as well as in the execution. If you have an event you want to succeed, I’d hire Carlos and Donna in a split second - you will not regret it!!

Probably the best catering experience I’ve ever had. Extremely professional, responsive and experienced. Chef Porras went above and beyond our expectations and asks. The food was amazing and everyone raved about it during and afterwards. He even accommodated my vegan diet and I couldn’t taste the difference. I would highly recommend them for any wedding or event you have in the future!!!

My fiancé and I can honestly say hiring Chef Carlos is one of the best decisions we've made in regards to our wedding, if not THE best decision for so many reasons. When we hopped on a call to discuss the menu for our wedding, Chef Carlos came up with an elaborate and incredible menu ON THE SPOT even incorporating vegan substitutes for my fiancé and I. My biggest concern was feeling as if I was burdening a vendor with having to make a separate meal for my fiancé and I as we are the only vegans in the family— but Chef Carlos and Donna reminded us that it was our day, to not worry, and they would be more than happy to accommodate us. Even in the midst of the busy wedding season last year (and now), they were quick to respond to emails and hop on calls if needed. They are so nice, humble, and have the best personalities! They truly care about their customers, and you genuinely FEEL that (this comment was made by multiple family members who met them during our tasting). Their presentation of food was beautiful. Every single thing we had was just amazing! Our non-vegan families even said how amazing the vegan food was! We had our food tasting over the weekend and already have another dinner booked next week— seriously some of the best food we’ve ever had. Thank you Chef Carlos and Donna for going above and beyond. We are so excited to have more yummy food from you, and to treat our families on the biggest day of our lives! :)

Details: Wedding • Dinner • Cocktail hour or hors d'oeuvres • Coffee or tea • Dessert • Vegan • Italian • American - formal • Plated meal • Yes, full service • Home • Yes, full kitchen • 40 - 49 guests • Standard (basic ingredients)

This year we decided to skip cooking on Thanksgiving. After a couple of messages with Chef Carlos we decided on a menu and I requested more southern sides . The turkey , ham, side dishes and the deserts were perfect , delicious and exceeded our expectations. His wife makes some delicious corn bread and he made a sweet potato cheesecake which was a first time for us to try and it sure was a hit . Everyone couldn’t stop talking about how delicious the food was . We are definitely using him for our future catering needs . And I would highly recommend to use them for any of your events .

Carlos & Donna helped me make my dream proposal come to a reality. Carlos cooked the most amazing food for us and even taught us some of his secret tricks. Donna took outstanding pictures and is an incredible actor for the purpose of my event. We will definitely love to see them again for our wedding ceremony!
