Jessica was amazing! We did a date night for my partner’s birthday and Jessica made us an amazing Mediterranean meal with some appetizers, lamb chops, and an amazing baklava! She was super responsive and very accommodating during the planning phases and even friendlier when she arrived. We would welcome her into our home anytime, not only because the food was great, but also because she was great company. In fact, we’re already booking her for additional dates! I highly recommend!

My Girlfriends and I rented a cabin in Tahoe for three days for a getaway, we hired Jessica to provide all meal planning and shopping. What an amazing food experience! Her creativity not only in her meal planning but also her presentation was first class yet comfortable. Her meals were delicious. She too is a delight. She is bright and articulate. A breath of fresh air! We can’t wait to do it again. Thank you Chef Jessica, you made this truly special!!

Working with Ms. Brunelli has been nothing but absolute bliss. Not only does she radiate a constant positive energy, she also invests majority or her personal time making sure each of those individuals she encounters to feel comfortable and acknowledged.

Chef Jess provided a wonderful experience for our special family dinner for nine. From the table settings, including flowers, to the wonderful appetizer, meal and dessert, we thoroughly enjoyed everything. She was a consummate professional throughout. I would highly recommend Chef Jess to anyone.

Jessica exceeds all expectations! She was the first to respond to my inquiry. After researching we decided on her, and what a treat! My sister and I hired her to cook an in home meal for my parent's 30th anniversary. It was a surprise for my mom and Jessica did not disappoint! She answered any of my ridiculous questions promptly and was fantastic at accommodating all requests. My sister and I have many years in the service industry so we were very particular with what we wanted. Jessica works with in your budget and is honest about what she can work with. Not only is her customer service an absolute delight but her food is MMMMM DELICIOUS! She completely understood what we wanted and needed while "wining and dining" my parents. Jessica is very personable, and the experience she provides is outstanding. This was our first time having a chef cook in home, so it was important for us to have someone welcoming. We will definitely be hiring her again! Thank you Jessica!

Jessica was on point! She was easy to work with and very responsive. She created a great 4 course menu for my wife and I for our anniversary. The food was delicious and she helped create great ambience by adding some small touches to our dinner. I will hire her again soon for sure.

Jessica was really easygoing and fun to work with. She came up with a great menu for my appetizer-only birthday evening for a small group, accommodating all my dietary restrictions. Given Covid times, I had her bring the pre prepared food and she plated it beautifully at my place. Also made a delicious cake.

F.A.Q

■ How many people are you expecting?
■ Are there any dietary restrictions or allergies I should be aware of?
■ Do you have a meal in mind that you just must have or are you open to
suggestions?
■ Where are all your guests going to eat? Will they be seated at a table and
be served a plated meal? Will they help themselves to a buffet and find
somewhere to land?
■ What time will your guests be arriving and how does that affect the start
time for your meal?
■ It is appreciated when kitchens are clean, trash cans are empty, and
refrigerators have space for me to use.

I attended the Le Cordon Bleu and worked in restaurants and catering from the Bay Area to Orange County for 10 years.

I decided it was time to branch out on my own so I could give an elevated and memorable experience of a higher quality from all the education and training I’ve received over the years.

Becoming a private chef is a much more personal way for me to connect with my clients through food and cater to their specific wants and needs each event.

■ My pricing formula is simple cost of service + cost of groceries = total.
■ Cost of service varies depending on number of guests, number of
courses, and service style.
■ Deposit is required to secure your date.

I am a lover of all different kinds of comfort food. Italian, French, and Mediterranean are my favorite foods to eat, making them my go to flavor profiles to cook.
