Learn more about the Chef.
My passion for cooking began at a young age through making dinners with my mother. We were lucky enough to have a wonderful garden with farm animals - so all the food we cooked was bound to be farm to table. It never occurred to me that people ate differently than us.
When I started college at UCLA, I began to realize the blessing it had been to live on a farm. I was exposed to what most people call "farm to table" but did not understand the underlying importance it had on our individual health or our society. I wish to share the pleasures of eating delicious, organic, farm fresh, healthy food with my clientele.
After UCLA, I decided to take my passion of cooking to the next level by attending culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. At once, I knew that cooking had always been my calling and I must learn as much as I could about the art.
I worked my way from restaurant to restaurant, learning new techniques from a variety of talented renowned chefs. However, in restaurants, something was always missing for me. The connection. The connection between farmer and chef. The connection between chef and clientele.
My biggest happiness in cooking is seeing the smiles on the faces of people who eat my food. I love to see my creations bring people joy. I hope to bring connection from farmer to chef, from chef to clientele.

Here is what they said about the Chef.
Chef Malekae’s food is unbelievable!
Simply the best private chef not only in Ventura but in LA county. She is an up and coming, young chef who caters to your every need. Le Cordon Blue chef, speaks French, and food is unbelievable. I’ve hired many private chefs in the past but Malekae is just more talented and her attention to detail is untouchable to her competition. Farm to table inspired cuisine is her style but she can do anything you would like. Amazing chef!
