Bonnie Goodman

Personal Chef Serving Orange County

Many families in Orange County are turning to Personal Chefs to prepare them delicious and healthy meals.  If you are struggling to find time to cook or are looking for alternatives to the drive-thru window, Chef Bonnie can take the pressure off your shoulders, and provide delicious meals for you and your family in the convenience of your own home.



How it Works

Getting Started

As your personal chef, Chef Bonnie wants to understand what you like to eat and your dietary goals.  Meet with Chef Bonnie and tell her what you need.  It's that simple. Armed with this information, she will customize menus for you and assist you in selecting an initial set of meals for your first cook date.

Cooking Day

Chef Bonnie gets an early start shopping for the freshest ingredients.  Once she's made her customary stops, she heads straight over to your home.  All you need to provide is a working kitchen and room in the fridge to store the finished meals.  Everything is prepared fresh to your specifications in the convenience of your own home.


Dinner Time

When you arrive home, you will be greeted with the aroma of your freshly prepared meals.  You will also find the kitchen exactly as you left it.  As you open the refrigerator you will see the meals organized into individual or family style servings.  Each container will be labeled with specific heating and serving instructions.

About Bonnie

Bonnie's two loves in life are her family and cooking.  When she's not cooking, Bonnie enjoys practicing Taichi and walking her two dogs.

After graduating from UCLA, Bonnie joined the LPGA as a Golf Club Professional but eventually changed her career path when she and her husband, Greg, started their family. For 20 years, Bonnie stayed at home with her kids, wearing many different hats along the way.  What started out as being a mild interest in cooking eventually became her new passion.

Running from one event to another, it's so easy to give into fast food.  I want to provide a healthy and affordable alternative.

Since 2010, Bonnie has been a successful personal chef serving Orange County, California.  Her clientele include busy families, seniors, business professionals, college students, celebrities, and professional athletes. Bonnie centers her cooking style around allergy-friendly and healthy homestyle meals that the whole family can enjoy.  She relies on fresh organic ingredients, smart substitutions, and proper cooking techniques to create healthier versions of traditional dishes and favorite comfort foods.

Bonnie continues to always explore new approaches in cooking and nutrition by completing advanced certification courses at T. Collin Campbell Foundation's Plant Based Nutrition Program through eCornell, ROUXBE Plant Based Professional Program, and Laguna Culinary Arts in Laguna Beach, CA.  She's a Certified Food Safety Manager by the National Registry of Food Safety Professionals.


No more last minute drive-thru’s! Instead we get to sit down and have a true family dinner.

After a busy day, I love coming home to the smell of Bonnie’s cooking.
     -Gail, Tustin, CA

My Dad lives alone and leads a very active lifestyle.  He doesn't like to spend time in the kitchen. Now each week he looks forward to Bonnie's great dishes.
