Meet The Chef
Inspired by flavors of my childhood growing up in California, I use modern techniques to create dishes that are both familiar and completely new. My style is contemporary take on classic dishes with an emphasis on creativity, quality and seasonality. For me, cooking isn't just food. It's truly a medium to provide and experience that my clients will never forget.

“'Ive had Chef Ortega's food several times, as my friends and I continue to hire him for birthday parties, lake powell trips and special events.
Chef Ortega's food is not only delicious, but his presentation and attention to detail are what set him apart. ."
"These guys are changing the private chef game. Their level of service and attention to detail was better than any high end restaurant. In fact, we referred to our Lake Powell trip as if we were at the Ritz Carlton. The presentation of every aspect of each meal was beautiful and everything tasted amazing. Chef Ortega, AJ, and Team."
''Chef Ortega catered a celebration of life for me and it was fantastic. The food was delicious, every detail was perfect and I would absolutely recommend him for a large or small event. He was prompt in responding to me and very professional”
''Excellent!!! On a recent trip to Utah we hired Chef Jonathan for a private dinner for 12 guests in our home. Our group enjoyed multiple courses sourced from local ingredients. Everything was prepared fresh and with attention to detail. The charcuterie course with local cheeses and the bison and elk spare ribs were amazing ”
"We got delicious fried chicken sliders (perfect for our neighborhood block party) and adorable cones with fresh fruit, Brie and macarons. The presentation was spectacular, the food was delicious and innovative. There wasn't one left! My friends were talking about the platters all night long and asking where we got them!"
