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.

I chose to use Primal Alchemy for my daughter's wedding. I cannot express well enough how delicious the food and service was. From meeting with Chef Paul, the planning and guidance given by Cindy in the office and then on the day of the wedding, they were an absolute pleasure to work with. Everything from the artisan breads, delicious olive tapenade, salads and entrées, all made with fresh locally sourced foods, were incredible. The quality of the food was noticeably fresh, elevated and delicious. The set up, service and breakdown went so smoothly...we hardly noticed their servers presence and yet every request was met and the service was impeccable. I would HIGHLY recommend Primal Alchemy over the other larger catering companies available in Orange County which in my opinion are very standard/average, even mediocre. If you're a foodie" and expect delicious food and service, choose these guys. you will be so pleased you did!! I wish I had photo's of the food. It was so delicious, it was all delightfully consumed without us taking pics!I totally recommend Primal Alchemy. You don't even need to clean up a thing after the party's over.

Primal Alchemy catered my very small wedding on 1/15/21. We wanted restaurant quality food and we were blown away. The appetizers were amazing and the servers even saved a plate for my husband and I, knowing we'd be hungry since we missed cocktail hour taking photos. The lunch was incredible. Everyone at the table was so satisfied. Chef Paul's short ribs are to die for. On top of the incredible food, the service was so good and they left my mom's kitchen perfectly clean. We will happily hire Primal Alchemy for another event in the future!

Primal Alchemy catered my 85th birthday party, which took place in my apartment, last week. Cindy was wonderful to work with. She came to the apartment and not only envisioned the T-shape of tables through my dining/living room but also worked with colors and beautiful creative centerpieces. Primal Alchemy did everything - which proved perfect for an 85-year-old! Chef Paul's dinner was beyond delicious and Christy's service was so warm. My 18 friends told me that besides the food and the occasion, they loved having all their needs attended to without feeling that anyone was hovering over them or interrupting the party spirit. I totally recommend Primal Alchemy. You don't even need to clean up a thing after the party's over.

We used Primal Alchemy two nights in a row for entertaining while attending the ACT Expo in Anaheim. Chef Paul is amazing! We had guests coming and going for hours and he was continuously made fresh appetizers for each guest. Chef's assistant was a great help in the kitchen cleaning constantly and serving guests. Cindy did a wonderful job of communicating with me to make sure our event was a great success.

Chef Paul and Cindy in the office are just wonderful. We talked a few times before the party and the more I talked the more excited I became. Anyway the food and serving came out exceeded my expectations. My guests also said this was a memorable experience. I wish I could eat Chef Paul's food more often.

I reached out to Primal Alchemy to cater my micro-wedding at Rancho Los Cerritos. Primal Alchemy went above and beyond- not only did they plan an amazing menu, but they also coordinated florals, table rentals, and the cake for me. In particular, Cindy was a fantastic coordinator, and between Cindy and the rest of the team, the day was a dream come true. Everyone was raving about the fresh, beautiful food, and the tablescape/extras were perfect! Thank you Primal Alchemy!

We had a beautiful celebration of life for my late husband catered by Primal Alchemy. Delicious food, and gorgeous presentation! Everyone commented on how wonderful the food and drinks were and how professional the staff were! We would highly recommend Primal Alchemy!

Fabulous plated dinner service for our 14 guest wedding in September! We had our wedding in my parents backyard. The food was so delicious and the staff was incredibly kind. We felt very safe with their catering, and they were extremely professional and clean. They did tray passed appetizers, and brought our plates to us while being seated. Would HIGHLY recommend them again, and it was well worth going the "plated dinner service" route vs a buffet, especially for this intimate wedding celebration! My only regret is not taking a classic iphone pic of the food with my phone (or the staff! incredible staff!)

(June 2018) I hired Primal Alchemy to cater a 50th birthday party in my 1100 sq. foot home and back yard. After I cleared the kitchen counters for them, they took over my tiny kitchen and went to work! Uniformed servers set up the buffet outside, Paul and his team brought in their insulated warmers and put out the most delicious and appealing spread I could have hoped for! Mediterranean grilled chicken and vegetables, Israeli couscous, sides, spreads, a whole gorgeous feast. If you think your function is not big enough for Paul and Primal Alchemy, stop worrying and give them a try. They made my party a dream, clearing plates and cups, refilling the serving platters, and generally doing ALL the things I am usually doing as the host of my own parties. Thank you for an incredible and memorable event.

From booking our dinner party with Cindy until the day of the event, it was professionalism all the way. I can't say enough about the level of service, the positive and helpful attitudes as well as the quality of the food (the short ribs were amazing!). It was my first time using their services and will definitely use them again. Thank you for helping make our evening so special.
