Sometimes, there’s just no substitute for experience, a maxim easily proved by Chef Emre’s skills in the kitchen.

During this time he was frequently flown to offer his skills in French, Mediterranean and Aegean cuisine at various high-end and Michelin starred restaurants around the country and send to cater single-handedly for events at The American Embassy.

He then traveled to California, where he worked at some of the best kitchens’ in the country -The Sea by Alexander’s Steakhouse, The Ritz, and finally Salt Air on Abbot Kinney.

Reviews

Here is what they said about the Chef.

High quality, wholesome food

Discovering FoodPeople was a dream come true for this busy business owner. To me, the thought of planning for and preparing meals is overwhelming and intimidating. And as a single women with no kids, it’s hard to justify spending the time to cook just for myself. When I met Eren and Chef Emre I felt comfortable knowing that they understood me, my lifestyle and my food preferences. They delivered on all of their promises and continually go above and beyond to exceed my expectations. I would highly recommend FoodPeople to any individuals or families who value high quality, wholesome food prepared with great care and attention.
