Introduction: I have been a professional chef for the last 14 years and have worked in some of the most beautiful resorts in California's Coachella Valley. I am passionate about cooking and all the good things that come about cooking your own meals. I want everyone to know that it's not as hard as it seems and even with a busy schedule you can also make something delicious and healthy for you and your family. If you already have some notable culinary skills take a class and learn something new.

Personal Chef

Chef Jan was excellent. I booked her for our 2nd wedding anniversary and she was everything I imagined. It was my first time hiring a personal chef and she exceeded my expectations. She was on time, wore her mask the whole time, disinfected surfaces, and her food presentation and quality was superb. Due to COVID, we didn't want to go out since we have a newborn at home. This was a perfect way to surprise my wife by celebrating in the comforts of our own home. I would not have changed a thing. The menu items were "lollipop chicken" (chicken drumettes) on bok choy with sweet chilli sauce, surf and turf, with a crepe desert to end. She picked up flowers for us and set the whole mood. If you're ever in the mood to celebrate and hire your own personal chef, don't think, JUST DO IT! You will not regret a thing.

Fantastic experience! Chef Jan Hill was extremely professional, great communicator, quality of food and presentation was beyond our expectations, all-in-all Chef Hill gave us a wonderful and memorable experience for my son's 35th birthday! Chef Hill is a very proficient and talented chef and a lovely person as well! This was the first time we hired a personal chef to create and serve a special occasion meal for my family in our home and we wonder why it took us so long, lol! Thank you Chef Hill!!

Amazing experience! Chef Jan catered to our specific needs (my wife has several dietary restrictions) and the food was 5-star, world-class.

It was an amazing experience and made my boyfriend’s birthday much more special. She listened to what type of food I wanted and made recommendations according to that. She responded quickly to my emails. The food was delicious. For appetizers, we had scallops and pork belly and entree was filet mignon with lobster and sea bass. Finished it off with tees leches. Thank you chef Jan!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    The price quote is a base price only. The cost of ingredients is not determined until we finalize a menu. Base price can also differ once we finalize a menu.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to get to know my customers. What they like to eat, where their skill levels are, and what they are looking for in a cooking class.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have ten years of experience as a chef working in many restaurants, hotels, and resorts. I have also taught cooking classes for kids ranging in age from four to 16 years old. I have also taught cooking classes to adults of all skill levels.
