We’ve been using Chef Paul for nearly 15 years, mostly for dinner parties, and we – and our guests – have never been anything but delighted. He’s an accomplished, experienced, highly skilled chef but also a flexible and creative one. He’s accommodated all the dietary regimens and restrictions we’ve thrown at him, as well as all kinds of individual “picky” tastes. He’s traveled widely and can cook different international cuisines, and he enjoys trying new things. And before I forget, his food tastes really good.

Chef Paul Heerlein has been a professional associate of mine for over 10 years. His expertise in the area of specialty dietary needs and overall culinary knowledge is outstanding. He has assisted me at the Bakken Estate at Kiholo Bay, and at other select exclusive Private Residences on the Big Island, in creating innovative, healthy, gourmet cuisine. Paul is especially adept at catering to the Five star Private Home lifestyle and assimilating to the exceptionally demanding needs those environments require. Chef Heerlein is truly a leading professional in our field, and I would not hesitate to recommend him for any position in the culinary profession.
