If you have never had a personal chef prepare a meal for you before, you may not know how we are different from a catering company.  So here is the basics of what a we do and how we are different from a catering company in San Diego.

The most important difference between hiring Artful Chefs and a catering company is the taste. Our food tastes fresher and is healthier. Our food is never remade or purchased frozen and reheated. We made all of our dishes from scratch. This is why we can easily make accommodations to help with any special diet needs.

Because we don’t purchase our food in large lots, we can shop right up to the day of your event for farm fresh, organic ingredients. You will really be able to taste the difference. All of our herbs are freshly prepared, never dried and reconstituted. All of our meats are high quality, grass fed and hormone free.  We use only reliable vendors, so we are sure our clients will always be happy with the quality of our food.

We are trained, professional chefs who love to share our skills and food with our clients. We believe, “Great food is art”. You will taste and experience the difference.

“We hired Chef Pharrell for a Mothers Day dinner for our family. Very simply, she did what she said that she would do! She was easy to work with to create the menu and very accomodating to our dietary issues. Food looked great and tasted great. It was appreciated by all and made the day all that more special.”
