Here Is One of the Best Personal Chefs in Big Bear

graphic with text "big bear lake vacation guide"The whole point of a vacation is to relax and take a break from your typical routine, right? Usually, when you prepare for a vacation, picking where to stay, how you’ll get there, and planning what you’ll do are the main things you focus on. You might even pick out some restaurants you’d like to go to beforehand, but what about when you don’t want to go out? The Big Bear personal chef Allan Arkin has the solution!

A Gourmet Personal Chef

Without the aid of a personal chef, you’ll have to cook your own meals, which means you’ll have to go to the grocery store, prepare your meal, and then clean everything up afterward. This sounds a lot like the typical routine you are trying to get a break from, right? That’s where Allan Arkin comes in.

You can relax and enjoy a gourmet meal without even having to leave your cabin! Chef Allan Arkin will carefully plan and prepare every aspect of an exquisite feast, including clean up, so you can enjoy your vacation to its fullest. A stress-free gourmet meal is just a phone call away!
