Welcome & Thanks for visiting
Quality Ingredients. Quality People. Quality Time
ChefMendivel.com is here to design your personal menu, for your needs using seasonal & locally sourced ingredients. I'm a classically trained chef with over 17 years of restaurant experience. I decided to offer restaurant quality meals and service in the comfort of your own home or vacation rental.
Fine Dining Experience
Leave it to me!
I'll handle everything from start to finish. The fine dining experience includes groceries, beverages, preparation of 5 course meal and cleanup. This package usually takes more prep time.
Casual Dining Experience
Great for Families!
This is the most bang for your buck. Impressive meals with less frills than the fine dining experience. Served family style. All packages include groceries and beverage options. Highly recommend!
Most Important Meal!
Let me help you start your day right with a delicious breakfast. Fresh berries, perfectly cooked eggs and bottomless mimosas are just a few great reasons to book.
No need to learn French!
Would you like to learn some tricks of the trade? I absolutely love to cook and teaching others comes naturally. I'll break down up to 3 dishes from start to finish. You may cook along or have a glass of wine and enjoy the show.
Weather permitting. Charred vegetables, flame grilled meat and a cold beverage make everything better. This rustic option is super beautiful and packed with bright flavors. Whether on the beach, at the park or in your backyard I am always happy when I'm grilling.

Is there a set menu?
There is no set menu. Produce is picked at the peak of freshness and flavor by local farmers who I'm lucky to call friends. Seafood is also seasonal to deliver the best product possible and ensure sustainability across all species. Chicken, Lamb, Beef and Pork are always available.
Is there extra cost for allergies or dietary restrictions?
No. Never! My goal is nourishment and a positive experience. The menu is tailored specifically to you.
What is included in the price?
The price includes groceries, beverages, wine or beer pairings, gas, labor and cleanup.
Any taxes or fees?
No taxes. The price is agreed upon before service. Milage is free up to 50 miles. After that it is 50¢ a mile. Specialty items may cost more.
How it works!
Call, email, text or contact me through the website. Once in contact we will create the menu and discuss scheduling. Every contract requires at least 2 hours shopping and prep time. No deposit required. 24 hr notice required.
Do I need to have a big fancy kitchen?
Nope! I love cooking everywhere. All we ask is that it is safe and clean.
