Wedding and Event Catering

We had Best Mobile Chef cater for our backyard wedding and were thrilled with the delicious courses they created for us! Shawna was incredibly creative in coming up with vegan options that all guests (non-vegans included!) thoroughly enjoyed! We would absolutely recommend them and hope to work with them again in the future!

Personal Chef

Chef Shawna exceeded my expectations. She was very quick to respond and answered all of my questions about menu options. She arrived right on time and was incredibly professional. I would definitely go to her again for future private dining experiences.

Wedding and Event Catering

My fiancé and I wanted to do a simple and easy catering for our wedding and had NO idea where to turn or who to reach out to. We got in contact with Shawna and OH MY GOSH! AMAZING! From the moment she contacted us to the wedding she was incredible! She was very punctual, efficient, and helpful. The menu was very detailed and was all so hard to choose from. But we picked the chicken cordon blue, lemon caper cod, Italian veggie melody, mashed potatoes, scalloped potatoes, chocolate mousse cake, and cheesecake. OH MY GOSH! The food was incredible and my guests were raving about it. At the end of the night, we only had one slice of cake left at the end of the night. We were so thrilled and impressed. Shawna and her assistance did such an amazing job. In time of COVID, they went above and beyond to make my guest feel safe and things were sanitary. We would hire them again in a heartbeat!

FAQs

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

    We go above and beyond to make sure our clients are ecstatic with their experience. We always lend a helping hand to whatever need presents itself .

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

    We will discuss the type of service you are looking for. We schedule a phone conversation to go over your likes, dislikes, allergies or any special dietary needs you might have. From there we will go over menu options and I create a personalized menu based on the information received. I email the menu along with a list of everything we discussed and if everything is perfect I receive a down payment and your special day is reserved. On the day of the event we arrive at the venue and create a wonderful meal and experience for you and your guests. When we are done we clean and make sure everything is exactly as we found it. Final payment is made at that time.

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

    I graduated from culinary school in Dallas with honors and now have over 25 years experience in the food industry. 20 of those years I worked as a patissier designing high end cakes and pastries. As time went on I realized my passion for savory dishes. I LOVE creating dishes that my clients truly enjoy. My favorite sound after I present the meal is MMMMMM!
