Le Petit Chef provides excellent service and fantastic food. I recommend Denisse for anyone who needs attentive and professional management of a dinner party. When we used Le Petit Chef for a staff-appreciation dinner, the food quality was exquisite, and the service was impeccable.

Many thanks to Denisse of Le Petit Chef for supplying us with her delicious bites for our Trunk Show. We were extremely pleased with her food, and many of our guests paid her glowing compliments about both the food and her friendly service. Her care and attention to detail were noted and much appreciated. The catering was attended to meticulously and to such a high standard, we were thrilled.''

We feel very fortunate to have found Denisse and have been ordering her weekly dinners for several months now. We find the service and the food prepared by her to frequently be very creative and always very good. Highly recommended.

I was so happy to have found Le Petit Chef to provide weekly food deliveries for a local family in Montecito, CA. I was looking for a local chef who delivered delicious, healthy, organic and seasonal dishes and I found this and more with Denisse. She is also highly professional, discreet, clean, reliable and has a creative flair for food presentation. She was able to accommodate for special food requests and was always on time with food delivery. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent chef. We were lucky to have discovered her!
When Denisse comes over to cook everyone gets excited. There is always quite a bit of theatrical sniffing. SNIFF! SNIFF! SNIFF! “Doesn’t that smell good?” we all say. My daughter hovers in the kitchen taking informal culinary lessons. Even the baby smacks his lips when Denisse arrives, and I don’t do a thing. Her food is savory and Denisse is sweet!
We rented an estate in Montecito for our wedding weekend and the reception. Denisse helped me plan the menu from appetizers to the main course selections. She arrived the day of the wedding and took care of the cooking, plating and clean up. All of our 40 guests were impressed with the delicious food. She is very reasonably priced as well!
Denisse did a beautiful job preparing a family birthday dinner, from shopping through cleanup -- all unobtrusively. She is very organized and prepared for contingencies. It was a pleasure to have her in our home.
We hired Denisse to run a cooking lesson for my brother-in-law's 30th birthday party, and we couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. She showed up on time and fully prepared to corral our rowdy bunch. Clad in her aprons, we followed her instructions and set to work on appetizers, an entree and dessert. Even those who knew nothing about cooking had a great time helping to prepare the meal. And the final result was delicious. Le Petit Chef was a great find!
Thank you very much for your professional service and tasty offerings. What a luxury to come home and need only to set the table. We appreciated your work.
Thank you for your cooking! I'm really grateful that you started your own business and I get to be a client!!
Thank you again so much for the delicious food and being able to accommodate us on such a short notice. The food got rave reviews from the ladies!
We happened to be in Santa Barbara for...your memorable dinner. We live in St. Louis but have a condo here in Montecito and try to visit as often as possible. You can be sure I will share your name with everyone I know here who needs personal chef services! Your amazing Mediterranean Farro Salad with Sorrel Gremolata was the best salad I have ever eaten! Continued success with your business. You have a wonderful future ahead.
