Welcome to Chef Dave Cooks! I am a personal Chef that serves the Sonora area in Tuolumne County, California. I have 36+ years of professional experience preparing a multitude of cuisine styles from simple comfort foods to gourmet. I will tailor your menus to suit your dietary needs such as: low fat, low sodium, vegetarian, vegan, portion control, etc. My goal is to provide you with the freshest, healthiest meals that dazzle your taste buds and save you time and effort!

I’m Dave Ingram and I’m your personal chef.

Catering

From a dinner of six to a  party of hundreds, I can design a menu that showcases your event. I help you with a menu plan that is seasonal, fresh, and creative and work with local suppliers and rental companies to cater to your vision for weddings, anniversaries, corporate events, barbecues, and more.  I have an experienced crew to staff events from a simple cocktail party with appetizers to buffets and sit down dinners. Leave the meal to us and you enjoy your guests and party in your home or at a venue of your choice.

Personal Chef


As a personal chef, I  prepare meals in your home that meets your personal needs and taste. I will meet with you to discuss all your dietary preferences then create customized menus for you. I’ll arrange a cook day, then do the grocery shopping, come to your home while you’re at work, prepare a week’s worth or more of fresh, healthy, balanced meals packaged as you like, package the meals for the refrigerator or freezer, and leave your kitchen sparkling clean!  All you have to do is follow my detailed heating and serving instructions.

Meal Club Delivery

Your also have the option of joining my meal club plan where you can choose from a calendar of meal choices. On those days of the week when you are too busy to cook a healthy meal, let me do it for you. Choose from one meal to a week of meals. You choose the meals, how many servings, and we do the rest. Deliveries are left at your door in insulated coolers on the designated delivery day for your area. Similar to our personal chef service, all you do is heat, plate, and serve.  We pick up the packaging at the next scheduled neighborhood delivery day.
