Hi! And thank you for visiting my website! A little bit about me:
I am a French-American gourmet chef that started my career in a
small French restaurant and eventually became the head chef at a
yoga retreat center (SRF) for ten years. There I learned the arts of
meditation, yoga, international cuisine, and Ayurveda.
After 2010, I worked as a live-in private family chef for several
families; catered a major motion picture and two TV shows; taught
cooking classes; opened up my own gluten free and organic
catering company; and became the corporate executive chef for a
doctor prescribed vegan national meal delivery company. I also spent the past three years cooking for one family exclusively as a private chef.
I have spent more than 20 years cooking professionally.
I am an expert in modern and classical international cuisines, as well
as Keto, Paleo, low-carb, Plant Paradox, postpartum and medical cooking for patients with cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.
I also have a complete background in vegetarian, vegan, raw vegan,
Ayurvedic cuisines, and of course more traditional cooking styles. I
can cook popular dishes from many nationalities, including American,
French, Chinese, Indian, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Mexican, Russian,
What sets me apart from most chefs is my internationally diverse
cooking abilities and my deep roots in health and nutrition. I care
deeply for my clients and I take pride in the quality of my cooking.
Feel free to send me a text or email me to see how I can best serve
your health and nutrition needs!
Let's make your life healthier and more delicious together!

"Prem's food tastes like he really enjoys making it!"
– Ram Das, Maui, HI
"Prem worked for us as a private chef for 3 years. He was a chef without an ego but whose talent certainly warranted one.
The utmost professional, Prem was quick to take direction while infusing his own creative twist to every dish. He remembered everyone’s dietary restrictions, food preferences and aversions. Always ready to converse if you engaged with him, but super respectful during family time.
I have yet to meet someone more passionate about food. His knowledge of different types of cuisine and the medicinal use of certain foods and food combinations was like no other.
He helped me stay healthy and on track during my pregnancy and after the baby was born. We look forward to having him cook for us again."
-Biana, Del Mar

“Not only healthy, but good for the soul and taste buds alike! I highly
recommend Prem's artistic cooking! Thank you Prem for sharing your
– Gabriel, Encinitas, CA
"Chef Prem came to our home and cooked amazing Thai inspired dishes
for my 50th birthday celebration. He suggested the menu, shopped for
all the food, arrived early on the day of our party and began cooking and
did not stop until late into the evening. There was a constant flow of new
foods for our guests to enjoy throughout the evening.
He also made sure that my kitchen was clean at the end of the night. If
you are looking for someone to come in and help you with your event,
call Chef Prem.
Our event was flawless and I truly appreciated not having to worry or
take care of the details for the event. We will definitely be calling Prem
for our next big event! Thank you Prem - it was an absolute pleasure
working with you and we look forward to you cooking for us again!"
-Debra, La Jolla, CA
"Prem was catered to provide lunches and dinner to 22 people on a
private retreat in North San Diego county. He was very professional
when working with me in preparing for this event and was extremely
responsive to the special needs of the diners, i.e., vegetarian, gluten
free, dairy free, etc.
His menu selections were fabulous and his meals were beautifully
prepared and very delicious. The meals were always served on time,
even though he had to share the kitchen with those on retreat.
He was extremely gracious, flexible, and went way beyond what was
expected in service. I found him to be an excellent chef and an
outstanding person of good will. I highly recommend him and plan on
utilizing his wonderful menus and skills in the future".
-Mary, Encinitas, CA
"I recently hired Chef Prem to create a special meal for my parent's
wedding anniversary celebration, and he exceeded all my expectations!
We had very specific dietary restrictions, and he accommodated all of
our menu requests with the utmost professionalism.
He arrived early, problem-solved when it became apparent that the
kitchen in the house we were renting was less than optimal, and
ultimately presented a palette-pleasing 4-course meal that everyone
thoroughly enjoyed. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a
personal chef, and would be happy to provide a personal reference.
Thank you, Chef Prem!"
-Daniel, Columbus, OH
“Prem infuses his delicious, nutritious food with love, care and
thoughtfulness. Even though I ate two plates of food at EVERY meal
during a weekend retreat, I never felt overstuffed or heavy inside – just
nourished, energized and satisfied. I highly recommend his catering
services for your next event.”
"Prem is a Certified Raw Vegan Food Chef and made incredible
Gourmet Live Food Meals for Ken and I for two wonderful months.
Healthy and delicious food to live for! How does it get better than that?!"
