A little about me

Raymond Bontempo has more than 20 years of experience in the catering and restaurant business.  Early in his career, he successfully opened and operated a bustling sports bar in Hollywood and later joined his mom’s catering business to expand their services.  Ray comes from a “foodie family” and enjoys overseeing the creation of delicious meals for his clients and their guests.  He is best known for his creativity, flexibility and calm demeanor in the kitchen. As a perfectionist, Ray leaves no detail to chance. He loves cooking for others, and finds his greatest satisfaction when guests refer him to their friends and family members.


Ray and his wife live in Southern California and escape to the coast whenever possible in their custom RV. As a father of four adult children, he is used to cooking for a crowd and managing chaos with a light-hearted demeanor.
