I was born and raised in Mendocino in Northern California, which is a very small town right on the coast. My parents have a big property with pigs, goats, and chickens, so I always say I grew up on a farm even though we didn't actually sell anything. We grew all our own produce, so everything we ate was local and farm fresh, which definitely inspired my love for food. My dad, who's French, can't cook at all, but my mom was a chef in her early twenties, and I would make dinner with her every single night from a very young age. After high school, I got my bachelor's degree from UCLA in international development, but I also took a lot of courses in food studies there. I'd worked in restaurants and loved the atmosphere, so after graduating from college, I decided to attend Le Cordon Bleu in Paris at the original location.


Today, I combine my background and training to make fresh, farm-to-table meals that use local, organic, and above all, delicious ingredients. It probably won't surprise anyone that I'm a big fan of Alice Waters, who many consider the modern founder of the farm-to-table movement, and Yotam Ottolenghi, a fabulous chef who has mastered the art of Mediterranean cuisine.  I love cooking Mediterranean-influenced food. In fact, I would say my style's farm-to-table Mediterranean. I draw on food and ingredients from Spain, Greece, Italy, and California in my cooking.

Although I've always loved the experience of working in a restaurant, I decided to go the private chef route because just as I love the connection between the land and food, I love the connection between chef and client.Through MEALS by MALEKAE, I wish to share the pleasures of eating delicious, organic, farm fresh, healthy food with my clientele. Cheers!

04 testimonials

"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!"

- Andrew R.

"We hired Malekae for a girls weekend and she did not disappoint! Keeping with the all girls theme she fit in perfectly and was a BOSS in the kitchen. The appetizers, main course and desert could not have been more tasty. We can’t wait to have her back again for the next dinner party! Highly recommend!"

- Becky D.
