Personal Chef Services from an Experienced Executive Chef

My name is Tom Catrow, an executive chef-turned-personal chef in Huntington Beach and Laguna Beach, California. For over more than two decades, I have sharpened the knowledge I gained at the Western Culinary Institute (Le Cordon Bleu) Culinary School by starting as an executive sous chef and progressing to an executive chef in hospitality food service and the restaurant industry. Since then, I have branched out, working as a private chef to a range of clients from individual households to members of the Utah Jazz basketball team. (I also do private catering and restaurant consulting.)
Whether you’re looking to hire a personal chef for one night or to engage weekly chef services, if you are looking for a private chef that comes to your home, call
(949) 469-0604 today. My services allow you to hire a chef for an event, hire a private dinner party chef, hire an in-home personal chef for one night or on a regular basis, and everything in between.
