Our Artful Chefs Team

When I established Artful Chefs, I actively sought talented chefs who could assist in elevating the standards of flavor and presentation. Furthermore, we believe that great food is art, and an outstanding meal creates lasting memories. I feel honored to collaborate with these talented chefs who share my vision. Together, we bring 75 years of experience and talent to San Diego County.

For every dinner party, we craft a custom menu. Additionally, we firmly believe that great food starts with top-shelf ingredients, so we locally source our food and utilize seasonal produce whenever possible. We distinguish ourselves from other San Diego catering companies by not simply reheating pre-prepared food. Instead, we prepare and serve everything fresh at your event!

In essence, our goal is to craft a meal so delicious and beautifully presented that it will be cherished as a work of art. While the meal itself may last an hour, the memories it creates will endure forever!

Thanks for choosing us to be your San Diego private chefs!

Executive Chef Pharrell Worthylake is the owner of Artful Chefs. During her career, she has served professional athletes, executives, and celebrities throughout San Diego and Orange County. Chef Pharrell grew up in Rancho Santa Fe, and has spent most of her life immersed in different cultures, foods, flavors, and techniques.

With a vision of providing world-class catering to exclusive clients throughout San Diego, Chef Pharrell gathered talented local professionals to join her team and create an unrivaled culinary experience for her clients.

“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.”
