Food is art with Chef Pete so prepare to be impressed. Having over 30 years of culinary experience that includes working with Wolfgang Puck to reaching Executive Sous Chef and Pastry Chef status at the acclaimed San Ysidro Ranch, he's certainly made a name for himself. Using locally-grown organic produce and quality meats and seafood, intimate dinners and gala events alike will be treated with impeccable five-star dining, but you can still wear your pajamas.
Le Petit Chef
We dare you to not drool while looking at Le Petite Chef's website. Chef Denisse Salinas does it all: recipe creation, cooking classes, catering, and personal dinners. She even offers a spa night package where you can enjoy a massage and Pecan Crusted Salmon, not recommended at the same time. Check out sample menus on their website that includes everything from Macaroni & Cheese Bites to Butterscotch Budino. Drooling yet?
Santa Barbara's most popular event caterer is none other than PureJoy Catering. Weddings and corporate events are their bread and butter (pun intended), but they also offer small celebratory options. Garden parties, elegant beach picnics, or even a backyard movie theatre, it's a one-stop-shop. They can provide anything you need to make your event complete. Except fire dancers, but you'll be too busy enjoying the food to notice.
Santa Barbara Private Chef
Chef Mattias Blom grew up in Sweden and is heavily influenced by his mother's and grandmother's cooking. He has over 30 years of preparing custom meals for locals and visitors focusing on rustic flavors sourced from seasonal and organic ingredients found at local markets. Whether it's homemade risotto or hand-rolled tagliatelle, Chef Blom's flavor combinations are hard to beat.
