Richard was our fabulous chef for a weekend to celebrate a family birthday. We were 17 people, including grandparents, adult children, and youngsters, and Richard created two amazing dinners and two breakfasts that “worked” for everyone. They were creative, beautifully presented and served, and absolutely scrumptious.

Moreover, he was truly a part of the birthday celebration. The kids loved talking to him, as did many of the adults, and he went out of his way to help the kids make s’mores, and engage one of our grandsons in helping to make French Toast. Whenever we think of our family weekend in Napa, we will think of Richard.

Richard is EXCELLENT in every sense of the word.  We recently rented a house in Napa for the weekend with some friends and our toddler, and decided it would be fun to stay in for the first night while everyone got settled.  We hired Richard to come in and make dinner for our group and it was BY FAR the best part of our stay.  He is an excellent chef – everything from the starters (warm goat cheese appetizers, delicious mushroom arancini in a spicy sauce) to the seasonal, fresh salad to to the perfectly cooked fish over lentils with kale to the UNREAL kahlua brownie banana splits was divine.  Richard was also a great addition to our home… he is fun to be with, interesting and easy going.  We really enjoyed sharing an evening with him – and we certainly enjoyed his cooking.  We would recommend Richard for any gathering – he is a talented and thoughtful chef.

We occasionally auction-off a very special dinner in our caves at Pride Mountain Vineyards for charity.  The food must be perfect, both for the winners of the auction lot who spend thousands for the experience, and so that our wines can be shown to perfection.  It can be challenging to create perfect wine and food pairings.  Chef Richard recently cooked for one such dinner and the results were spectacular.  Creative, artistic, cutting-edge presentations were, most importantly, delicious on a gourmet scale (check out the food gallery for a visual sample).  Thank you Richard!  We can’t wait for the next culinary adventure.

I went to Peju winery in Napa and had a three course chef’s meal prepared by Chef Richard Perot. Can I just say it was one of the best meals I have ever had in my life. He used all fresh ingredients and whipped them up like it was nothing. The presentation was amazing too. At the last minute, he was informed my friend was a vegetarian and quickly improvised making her vegetarian options while still serving me my favorite meats and fish. One of the dishes he prepared for me was a seared tuna on top of a salad with a homemade dressing that was to die for. Every part of my meal was mouth-watering and I was sad when it was over. I would definitely recommend Chef Perot for any dining experience and I will certainly hire him myself.

What an experience! We lucked into Richard as he was the chef taking care of our large group for dinner and wine pairings at a local winery. Richard’s interactive experience, fresh hand sourced ingredients, personalized menu options and unbelievable course after course experience convinced us right away to cancel local reservations and ask Richard to spend another evening with us – the next night! Richard once again took center stage with multiple courses after course surprise! We could not have made a better decision and can’t wait for the opportunity to welcome him again!

The meal Richard prepared for us was amazing. He easily accommodated my dietary restrictions with fresh, flavorful food that was as enticing to look at as it was to eat. From appetizers to desserts, everything was exceptional. A 5-star restaurant meal in a one-on-one setting.

Richard cooked for my family on the occasion of our daughter’s 21st birthday in  Napa Valley and we had a lovely time! In our group, we had vegetarians as well as a minor, who could not drink, and Richard adjusted the menu and the drinks pairings to accommodate all of us very nicely. What we all remember fondly, is Richard’s easy-going personality, openness in sharing his recipes and style of cooking and the wonderfully flavorful food he served.

Richard Perot has always satisfied our dining needs.   His dishes, fresh seafood, wild duck, prime rib, what ever he prepares, have always been absolutely amazing; and, the dining experience is always special.
