Customer Reviews

Wow. While in Lincoln City visiting my cousin I was introduced to a new idea that would change the way we would “eat out” while on the coast. A personalized meal cooked for you in your own kitchen by a great chef. What a great evening watching Chef DJ and his wife, Sarah, create the best meal you could imagine for a great price. If your looking for an experience like no other, from the first bite to the last your not going to regret this evening at home with family and friends. Thanks Chef Mendivel for a wonderful experience, oh and they did the dishes too.Robert Heater 12/8/21

Chef DJ, is just a gift. So thankful to have someone like him to help with entertaining. He has put on two wonderful dinners for us and our guests/family. Not only fabulous meals, he’s a pleasure to have in our home. Thank you.

I hired chef D J Mendivel for a small family gathering around the holidays and it couldn't of gone better. He arrived on time, was extremely professional and nice, cook some amazing foo, and cleaned everything before leaving for the night. I would highly recommend to anyone for a special occasion.12/29/21

We have worked with Chef DJ twice hosting private parties and couldn't be happier. Super easy to work with, great menu planning and the meals are outstanding. From the charcuterie to desert each bite gets better. He arrives on time, brings his own equipment and cleans the kitchen on the way out. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him or use his services again. You won't be disappointed.10/15/2021
