About

I am a well-trained chef with 20+ years of experience in the culinary field. I am well versed in a variety of cuisines and cooking techniques. I am able to adapt and customize my style to the client's needs and wants, in addition to having access to a commercial kitchen to do some of my pre-production if necessary. Also feel comfortable knowing that I can exceed the expectations and "Wow" factor for your event with a Pastry Chef and Sushi Chef also on board my culinary team. I've also had the opportunity to train with international Iron Chef Morimoto when I was one of his opening chefs for his Honolulu restaurant — Morimoto Waikiki. I know there are a lot of intangibles that I bring with me to the table, and I know that anyone who uses my services will not be disappointed. Thank you for your time.

About

I am Chef Loren Holly. I was educated in culinary training and apprenticed under Chef Franz Kubak of the Hilton Hotel in SLC, Utah, Chef Simi Niumatalolo of the PCC in Laie, Hawaii, and Chef Jose Serrano of The Mayan Restaurant in Sandy, Utah. During my tenure training under some of the best chefs in the culinary field, I played a strong role in opening several restaurants such as The Mayan where I performed a crucial role as a sous chef helping to bring the first year budget from millions of dollars loss down to a $900,000 loss. At Tsukiji’s Restaurant in Honolulu, Hawaii, as an executive chef, I helped open the restaurant and created part of the menu that is still enjoyed by many. In 2001, at the age of 28, I became the executive chef for Brigham Young University in Hawaii where I oversaw several food service departments, such as the catering department, student dining hall, snack bar outlet, and takeout services, where I managed over 30 employees, and I also created a new system to manage labor and food costs, saving the university much time and money and bringing the food services department from a rolling negative balance to a positive surplus by the time I left in 2007. In all my years being in the business, I, Chef Loren Holly, had served high-profile celebrities like Bill Cosby, Della Reese, Roma Downy, John Dye, Gladys Knight and The Jets. On top of that, I served world leaders like the King of Tonga, King Tupou VI, Indonesia President, Yudhoyono, when they Visited BYU, Hawaii while I was the executive chef; former governor, Linda Lingle, who was the first lady and republican to hold office at that level in Hawaii; and also Governor Aborcrombie, who is the current governor of Hawaii. So, my experience in serving the clientele of all status is not new to me. With my strong creative talents coupled with my vast experience and knowledge in the food service, I can bring the abilities needed to ensure the success, attention to detail and the needs of our clientele.

About

I cannot praise Chef Jason Paul and his team enough! We hired him for our wedding reception of 18, and, it being a destination wedding, we didn't have the chance to meet him until the day of the wedding. He did not disappoint! The appetizers (coconut shrimp and wontons) were fantastic and so fresh, and our guests are still raving about the filet mignon - tender, juicy and cooked perfectly! While I was very pleased with the meal, one thing I was also impressed by was the level of service. We had planned to set up the tables and everything ourselves, but we were so pleasantly surprised when we returned from our photos and Jason's team had already set up everything to perfection. They truly went above and beyond what we had expected, and we were so grateful for everything that they did to help us on the day. I would wholeheartedly recommend Jason and his team to anyone looking for personal chef or small catering. The food was as good as (or maybe better than) what you would get in an upscale restaurant, and the service went above and beyond our expectations.

About

David was our personal chef for years for the majority of the 1990's in New York City. Passionate, dedicated, and beyond talented - I'd recommend him to anyone with a love of quality meals, especially French Cuisine. He even expanded my tastes, introducing me to foods I thought I hated. The only complaint I can think of is he left us and the city to go out west. Maybe we'll catch you in Hawaii sometime - ALOHA!
