We were visiting San Diego for a week and wanted to have a chef prepare our meals and we were lucky enough to find Chef Michael. He was so friendly and easy to work with and accommodated all of our different dietary needs from pescatarian, to no fish, to FODMAP diet, to 3 toddlers. Each day he prepared wonderful meals with the freshest ingredients and it was always the perfect amount. The salads were amazing and the meat cooked perfectly. He prepared, cooked and had it all cleaned up and we couldn't have asked for more. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and my entire family was so appreciative that we met him. If you're planning a party, wanting a plated meal or more family style Michael can make it happen.

Thank you chef Michael for a fantastic dinner you put together so quickly. My family all enjoyed the appetizers and family style meal you prepared and my three year old loved her pasta. We were all impressed by how quickly and cleanly you put everything together. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a private chef.
