Get to know me better

A guy who has been given a passion and purpose to love my life family, people and a gift for culinary

With a Portuguese father and Brazilian mother, I had grown up watching both my parents in the kitchen cooking their foods from home like anything with linguisa and my mom’s feijoada.

I wanted to become an executive chef while working at the Westin Century Plaza Hotel under Chef Raymond Hoffmeister. My pursuit of culinary perfection has taken me to the kitchens of France, Italy and back to my hometown of San Diego where I was able to learn from my mentor and renowned Italian Chef Roberto Bernadoni. I have been able to create many memorable experiences for delegates, celebrities, musicians and entrepreneurs as a private chef.

I served on the 2015 National Whole Grain Summit as the culinary chair and guest speaker. My most recent accolades are winning 2 American Culinary Federation silver medals at the flavors of the world challenge and the NACUFS challenge. I have been a guest chef on the daytime hit show ‘The Talk” on CBS as well as supporting and using my talents to various charities in the Los Angeles area like the 2014 Art of Elysium.I donate my time to local school programs in teaching future chefs the art of cooking and eating healthy.


I am currently working as a food and flavor consultant for various companies. I still keep my hands in food by serving as a personal and private chef to many clients both locally and abroad. I also partner with local bartenders and sommeliers to bring you a greater experience for your large event. I like to use certain tools such as my personal smoker and pizza oven when needed as well as making all my food from scratch.

Chef J Perry exceeded all my expectations! Every single thing that was plated was amazing, me and my friends couldn’t get enough from the appetizers to the desert. I highly recommend booking if you ever need a chef for any occasion. You won’t regret it!

We hired Chef J for the final night dinner of my best friend's Scottsdale bachelorette- he was AMAZING. Such a fun experience. The food was legit the best food we had all weekend, if you have the option i highly recommend choosing his mexican dinner. its been a few weeks and we all cannot stop talking about how good the food was and how fun the experience was. Chef J was so professional and attentive. All in all he spent ~5-6 hours at our house from prep to full kitchen clean up (!!!!) I cannot recommend Chef J and the experience he provided us with enough!!!
