Since 2012, Take a Chef has connected thousands of local chefs and guests in over 100 countries, through private chef experiences at home. In this experience, we are excited to present to you, Chef Luis.

"I realized cooking was my passion while working as a designer in Mexico City. I quickly began cooking for friends, turning my home into a restaurant. Every day I would go to the market and buy fresh fish, local vegetables, and fruits to prepare a meal for whoever would show up.

I was soon invited to cook with Oliver Lombard, one of the best chefs living in Mexico City, and later I took over the kitchen at Haramara Retreat in Sayulita, where eventually my supporters convinced me to move to Marin County! Where I feel very lucky to be cooking for my guests with the incredible ingredients the region has top offer."

Chef Lious was amazing! He was so accommodating, had great energy, and his food was delicious! This experience was ten times better than going out to a restaurant. I highly recommend him.

Chef Luis was phenomenal. He was patient with our group letting us learn from him and the food was unbelievable. The portion sizes were generous. He customized based on dietary needs. We enjoyed this experience SO much and would recommend this to anyone. It was the perfect evening!

What a phenomenal experience! All we had to do for our group of nine was select a menu, sit back and relax, all while enjoying an amazing and memorable meal. Would highly recommend as a group activity!

tl;dr: in retrospect, for 3 people (me, my wife, and 6-year-old) a fancy restaurant in the area (or even take-out) would have been more satisfying, better tasting, and less expensive Our experience: I hesitated to post this publically. We had read the positive reviews of Take a Chef generally and Chef Luis specifically, and so we booked a private chef experience via Airbnb for the last night of our vacation in Sonoma. We were very excited about it, and hoped to like it so much that we would make it a regular occurrence for our vacations/special events. Unfortunately, that was not the case. To be honest, the experience was disappointing. Chef Luis' overall demeanor was...disinterested? Distracted? It was prominently advertised that we would have the chance to cook with him and learn "Learn the secrets hidden within each dish" but when I think back on our experience all I can remember was how curt his greeting was when he arrived, and how little he actually interacted with us during the preparation of the meal and during it. Rather than make us feel comfortable, my sense of the evening was that we were inconveniencing him. He wore a mask in the beginning but at some point during the preparation, he pulled it down and never pulled it back up for the rest of the night. It was also offputting that he didn't ask to take off his shoes (he didn't) despite the fact that all of us were not wearing shoes/our shoes were in the front of the house. Even a simple acknowledgment that he needed to wear shoes for a particular reason and that he was sorry for having to do so would have gone a long way. The food itself was fine, although much of the meal didn't fit the "Modernism" menu we had chosen for the night. I had wanted to get a sense of how a chef sourced the ingredients from a meal, but almost all of them were from Whole Foods, since in his words our booking was at a "weird time" for a dinner party and so he wasn't able to go to the farmer's market. The duck itself was precooked and quite salty. The menu itself didn't include some of the things that had been advertised, either, including the spiced soft boiled quail egg. The "canvados cream" that I had wanted to learn how to prepare was instead Whole Foods vanilla ice cream. The apple "mille feuille" (literally "1000 sheets" in French) was sliced apples on a single pre-made puff pastry that came from his restaurant. We love food and the chance to cook with a skilled chef was something that we had hoped would be something we could do again and again with Take a Chef. That said, when the night ended we were all a bit disappointed and wanted to share our experience in the hope that we/others might have a better experience in the future.

This was the best experience. Luis was fantastic and very personable. He was very thoughtful in accommodating my egg allergy and being inclusive of the other guests as well. His food is amazing and he was so respectful of our home. He really made the night special. If you’re in the fence about booking, DO IT. You absolutely won’t regret it.

Luis was excellent. He customized a menu for our group which consisted of a vegan, a vegetarian, a gluten free diet and 4 omnivores. Everyone left the table well fed and satisfied. He also left the kitchen exactly as he found it when he cleaned up before he left. Luis is awesome! Highly recommend him.
