What awesome things people are saying …

Chef Paul put together an amazing spread for our wedding at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. He put together a menu that was fresh and delicious. Our guests came out absolutely raving about the food. He and his staff were able to manage the challenges that cooking at the museum posed.

The food was absolutely delicious and the personal service was outstanding! I hired Chef Paul and the Primal Alchemy crew for a housewarming party for 40 people  … unlike other caterers who just emailed me a menu and never bothered to speak to me.  The servers and bartender were always on the spot and very attentive to my guest’s needs.  All of my guests raved about the food … Thank you Chef Paul for a great meal and an excellent experience!  It was so wonderful to be stress free and be able to focus on spending time with my guests.

We went to Algalita’s fundraiser at Captain Charlie Moore’s house last night and experienced for the first time Primal Alchemy’s talent. He used all organics grown from Charlie’s garden plus the meat was caught or bred in a sustainable manner.

The food was cooked with flavors that rivaled our imagination. Loved it!!
