Chef & Private Catering
Personal Touch Gourmet will design a fabulous menu for any occasion for a small or large group. If you love to entertain and prefer to spend time with your guests instead of in the kitchen, Chef Mary Ellen will create, prepare, and serve a delicious menu to suite your tastes.
Our “Winter Into Spring” Group Classes are Running Now! We love to teach our clients how to prepare delicious and healthy meals using seasonal ingredients. If you prefer to learn in the privacy of your own home, we can schedule a private class for you and a group.
Recipe Creation & Testing
Chef Mary Ellen fine-tuned her recipe testing experience as “Recipe Tester” at the Los Angeles Times Food Section, preparing, testing and editing recipes for publication. Over the years she has created hundreds of her own unique recipes and she’s happy to share them with you!
Gift Certificates are available for all Personal Touch Gourmet Classes and Catering Services
