About Us, And How We Got Here.

Our Delicious
Story

While I was working at the Orange County School of Culinary Arts as a Chef Instructor, while teaching one of my classes called Chill’n and Grill’n back in 1999. I put together a blend of spices that worked extremely well. My students and I both agreed that this was quite an amazing combination, from there I tweaked it and perfected it. Now it’s known as Southwestern Flair Seasonings. It comes in three different intensities; mild, spicy, and Oh my God someone dial 911!!! Not to mention there is a diabetic line, along with a regular version that is not low sodium.

These seasonings are low-sodium, heart-smart & the highest quality ingredients. No fillers. You won’t see words like Salt, MSG to enhance flavors, or other big words like Sodium Dioxide. We use only clean, pure simple ingredients. This way you know that by using these products you are getting the best. “This is the way.”

What We Do

Chef Gregory's EST 1997

Chef Gregory’s is one of the leading catering service providers in the Central Coast area. Our mission is to provide all our clients with innovative, high-quality services at competitive prices, no matter the size. Hi, this is Chef Gregory, and I must say that it’s very difficult for me to do Mediocre food and service. I am a perfectionist and have such a strong eye for detail. I make certain that we prepare for days in advance and before an event making certain that when we get on-site there is nothing left to chance. This means that in prepping for a sit-down dinner or buffet, there is usually 30-50 hours of work involved before getting to your place. This includes making sure that rentals, decore, flowers, music, and bar is ready for service. No two events are alike and each one requires personal attention.  At Chef Gregory’s we strive for success and settle for nothing less. One of the most common things that I have heard clients say; “I’m sure glad we found you!”  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard this after the events are finished. Not to toot my own horn but in all honesty, I truly love what I do!!!
