Fun Palm Springs Chef for Hire?

About 10 of us girls are headed to Palm Springs for my best friend's bachelorette party in May. We're more of the low key types and will be renting a house. I was thinking it would be a great experience to hire a FUN and knowledgable chef to come to the house and do a demonstration and help us prepare dinner for the night (also to give my soon to be married/not such a good cook friend a cooking lesson!). We don't have a fortune to spend so I'm not looking for anyone hoity toity and stuffy- fun is more important. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!!

  1. Hi JDobies - I have the same question. Did you end up finding a chef for hire in Palm Springs?

      salziger hund - you might check with Palma Hansen. I have been to parties she cooked for and she is fabulous. She's a lot of fun and the food is fabulous. Check out her blog:

      I couldn't find her contact info on the blog, but if you are interested in contacting her go to the clickthru for Palmabella's Italy and her email address is there.
