Verified host
Hi! I'm Catherine I am a professionally trained chef from Switzerland and I am the owner of My Wishing Table, Personal Chef Service. My love for cooking began very early at the age when I became the family chef to help my single working mother. In the beginning my dishes were simple and easy, but as I grew so did my love for cooking and soon enough, simple meals turned into gourmet creations. I pursued a 3-year apprenticeship as a chef where I learned various traditional European styles of cooking such as French, Italian, and German. My skills and passion allowed me to work in very prominent hotels and restaurants in Switzerland before I decided to move to California and experience America. Living in Los Angeles and eating European food is the best of both worlds that I would like to share with everyone! I enjoy mixing different cuisines from Europe with other cultural feasts but I also adore preparing real traditional German and Swiss meals like Mütti and Oma use to make. Prost und Guten Appetit!

Catherine is a wonderful host and most professional chef! After a warm welcome, I was joined by a fun group of ladies around her wonderful table for the Swiss Raclette, otherwise only available in Switzerland. First class ingredients, with a vast choice from healthy to sinful (raw veggies, variety of fine meats, wonderful Raclette cheese and many home made side dishes and sauces) Loved her pickled veggies, but my table mates favored the also delicious garlic sauce, that complimented the grilled meats. A homemade lemon sorbet completed the feast! Thank you Catherine! It was wonderful! What's next???

It was a very fun night. Catherine, our "Hostess with the Mostess" prepared a smorgasbord variety of deliciousness for our Raclette experience. Loved her homemade lemon sorbet in iced vodka. Thoroughly enjoyed dining with the other 7 dinner guests- initially strangers - all in all it is a great evening and well-worth the price.
