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

Primal catered my 50th birthday & surpassed my expectations. The service was phenomenal & it was like having a 5 star restaurant in my home. They set up, cooked & cleaned up while I & my friends enjoyed the spectacular evening!

The food was absolutely delicious & the personal service was outstanding! I hired Chef Paul & the Primal Alchemy crew for a housewarming party. From the first contact, I knew I would be 100% satisfied … [They] took the time to ask what type of experience I was looking for… unlike other caterers who just emailed me a menu & never bothered to speak to me. The servers & 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 & 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 …The food was cooked with flavors that rivaled our imagination. Loved it!!
